I've heard that you need to fix alot on the Mesa Boogie amps, to make them stay "clean".... is that so?

So you dont like boogies? Cool dude your missing alot but everyone has their own taste. But my mesa express has cleans I would put up against almost any other amp except maybe a high quality fender. Ever since I got a mesa boogie amp I have been nothing more but satisfied and I cant wait to get a single rec or something.

The Recto series has a notoriously lackluster clean channel. Some people prefer setting one of the high gain channels with a low gain and rolling back on the volume for cleans.

I love boogies, but what I ment was that I've heard that you always have to screw and fix on them... but that might not be the case ^^ what boogie have you got?

Mesa Express 5:25 1X12 Very nice amp and extremely versitile although it does lack the high gain of some of its brothers and sisters. An OD pedal should fix this soon though. I found the settings found in the manual are awesome as a starting point and even on their own. I think all amps require a certain amount of tweaking depending on its level. I wouldn say it takes anymore tweaking then say your average tubed marshall or bogner type amp.

my boogie's 14 years old; it's close to being my age (it's younger by a few years)!!!

It still works and slays most other amps out there; aside from like a Bogner or a Diezel, but hell, what CAN?

Valves can blow in ANY amp.

I think you just misunderstood something.
I think this is about the Mark series amp, because you have to tweak them alot to get a good balance between good cleans and good lead. mostly on the mark I, II and III since you have 1 EQ for 3 channels + a 5 band graphic EQ.

a DC-5.. it's in my sig.

I actually think the tubes in it are that old too.

Either way, it sounds amazing.
