    NCD: Mesa Content

    Saw this pop up on the local FB market and after losing out on a Soldano cab yesterday, I went and grabbed it this morning. Haven't had a chance to check it out yet, but will soon.

    From what I found online, I believe it's a Mesa Boogie Lone Star 112. It has the Mesa Boogie Black Shadow (made by Celestion) in it and from what I'm expecting, it's going to sound oh so beefy.



    Not sure if I want to run it and the Fryette R112 at the same time, or sell off the Fryette, or if I even can run them both at once. The Jet City has 8 and 16 ohms outs, and the R112 and this Mesa are both 8ohms. According to the JC manual, it can run 1-8 ohm speaker or 2-16 ohm speakers on the left two jacks, and 1-16 ohm on the right jack.



    The Mesa has a parallel output on the back, but I have a major mental block when it comes to calculating speaker resistance... Anyone know?

      Keep both, dif cab- dif sounds = win. FWIW those Fryette cabs are supposed to be super sweet, you just want options or something/ maybe a flip?

        Thanks, Tony - looks like I can't run them at the same time... #boo

        The Fryette is really sweet, but I just hooked up the Mesa and went back and forth with them and for what I play, the Mesa is the winner. The Mesa is thicker/beefier and possibly a bit more defined in the high end. The Fryette is indeed a great cab - and probably more versatile and better suited for someone not trying to play TEH BROOTZ all the time. I bet running the two together would produce some great tones, but if I can't run them at the same time, I have no reason to keep the Fryette - so it'll be up for sale soon.
