Mesa Boogie, problem getting sound

I bought a 1986 Mesa Boogie Mark III (new tubes) about 6 months ago, and it's sounded great up until I played a gig with it a few nights ago. Four bands used it, but the last band was particularly loud (master volume set to 3.5), and I heard the sound stop halfway through their set. It turned back on in like 20 seconds, though, so I assumed they just messed up with their pedals.

Now I've got it hooked up at home again, and the Power light is turning on, but there's no sound no matter how I adjust the settings. I plugged into the Effects Return Jack like the manual said to see if it would make any sound, but nothing came out.

Does anyone have any insight to the problem? I've got some ideas, but I'd like to hear from someone with experience in the matter. Thanks.

Re: Mesa Boogie, problem getting sound

Hi Max

Do the tubes light up when you turn it on?
Have you tried disconecting the speaker and putting the amp through another speaker cab to see if your speaker has blown?

I've had a couple of boogie's I played them loud all the time (8-9 master vol) never had a problem, they were always very reliable. Boogie's are normally fairly bulletproof

Other than that I would say take it for repair, don't mess with it you might do more damage.

"DON'T LET ANYONE USE YOUR GEAR!".
That's gotta be the oldest rule in the book.

I made the same mistake. I borrowed my amp to a guy (a so called friend) he busted it and wouldn't pay up! You live and you learn.

dan armstrong bass pickup

i am looking for a pickup for a '69 dan armstrong acrylic bass.any ideas or know anyone who would be willing to repair mine.

Re: D.O.A. dan armstrong bass pickup

Hello
Sorry to say that the Dan Armstrong guitar/bass pickups that eventually die are pretty much a solid block and cant be repaired. I've shown mine to Seymour Duncan,Lindy Fralin,Dan And Kent Armstrong, Bill Lawrence etc. and they all said sorry but no. Also be aware that the reisseue that was made from 1998 onward will not "pop in" and you will need to mod your bass ...witch I dont recomend. I'm working right now with Curtis Novax( Novax.org )on making a killer clone and hope to get Dan's blessing.
Makes a nice paper wieght though;)
Billy

Re: dan armstrong bass pickup

Bill...those buggers aren't very easily fixed! I had a box of them, and out of the 20 some odd pickups, ONE worked. So I autopsied them and know what it takes to fix/make them. I could take a crack at fixing your pickup, but it could be like a surgeon not wanting to remove a bullet that's sitting 2 cm from the spinal column....it could go either way. It could be fixable, or it could just be junk.
cheers,

Pat F

Seville Guitars

Does anyone know anything about the Seville brand of guitars? I have an S-32 model and have no knowledge about it whatsoever other than it was made in Korea. I love this guitar, it is probably the best sounding guitar I've ever played. If someone has any info on these guitars, please let me know.

Re: Seville Guitars

:I just won a Seville copy of a Gibson Melody Maker on e-bay. Looks cool. I don't know much about them either.

Re: Seville Guitars

NO I HAVE NO CLUE BUT I HAVE 1 TOO AND I WANTED TO FIND OUT ABOUT IT TOO

Tama guitar

I have a Tama acoustic model 3555 from the late 1070's. I am interested in selling the guitar. It is in decent shape, with a few minor flaws. I will have pictures available for anybody interested. Please email to nyb516@aol.com

Re: Tama guitar

sounds like a real early model, pre war.

Re: Tama guitar

: sounds like a real early model, pre war.

Don't think they made Tama guitars before the war. They started in the early 70's with Martin copies. I woildnt mind having a look at it though. Drop me a line and we'll sort something out. ;-)

bass neck length

Hey i am getting a bass on friday, and as im gonna be new to playing, im going for a cheap £140 one. the one im gonna get is one with 20 frets. ive seen other 'standard' basses which have over 20. Do the amount of frets on the neck actually is much of an impact on playing, or just a difference in the guitar not the music?

Thanks for any replies

Alex

Re: bass neck length

Short scale bass will have an effect on the tone, not as deep, a lot of women play short scale necks too.

Re: bass neck length

ahh...ok thanks
