Hello there,

i just bought a Mesa Boogie Single Recto (solo 50) from US in just perfect condition!!. The internal Power supply receives 110v. Unfortunately i live in Europe and we use devices only for 220v.

i have 2 option for transforming the 110v to 220v, so i can use this Head Amp and working properly (without buzz, hums etc.)

1) i can order the genuine MBoogie (internal) transformer 220v and just my technician make the necessary changes! (but is very expensive - $480 from the local official distributor)

2) or just order a simple (but with very good quality) EXTERNAL transformer from 110V > 220V that will be costs: $80 - $90.


QUESTION: do you believe that the second option will helps me to solve the electricity problem that i have, or just solve this issue and born a humm problem?


thanks

go for the external if you usually play at home

hey! thanks for the reply.

I will use it to my own Recording Studio, so perhaps there is more complicated!
but thanks...

You want to mount it outside of the amp basically, a voltage changer correct? I believe kurtlives thinks you want to put an extra transformer in the amp itself.

YES correct!

i just need to work it properly! not to make "strange" mods!
usually i don't "play" with my studio's equipment! he he ( mesa boogie microwave he he)

So the main question is if the external transformer (e.g. see image) will make BUZZ noises or Hummssss.




Note that i will plug it to a electricity line "chain" that comes from a ATVR Power Regulator (8KW) (stable 220V (1% - +) a FURMAN POWER CONDITIONER and a Very good T-RACKS POWER SUPPLY

Any suggestions?
