Going Broke on Mesa Tubes

By Pat Schaeffer

from Klamath Falls, OR

Straight scoop, no propaganda...when these tubes work they sound great...thus the 2 stars instead of 1. My new (last year) Mesa Boogie Mark V goes through Mesa tubes at such an alarming rate I have to quit using them (free or not)...they simply don't hold up. Now, the Mesa guys will tell you their tubes are the best and are rated to within 5% of specification vs. the typical 10% of spec' for other tubes. Doesn't matter if you have to replace them every 2-3 months, you're da#?&ed! Some of the tubes I've been sent exhibit infant mortality, in other words, DOA! This is the heart of the problem: an American company with a good reputation that is complacent, arrogant and no longer listens to its customers. Get 'em if you like the name brand, but if you're a practical musician you'll look elsewhere.

Excellent Value

By Ed D. Metal

from Denver, CO

Regardless of where these tubes come from, they are an excellent value and quality. I have used Mesa tubes in my Stereo 2:90 and they have alway sounded great and had long life. Please keep up the good work!

Like a New Amp!

By Shane Young

from Hawthorne, Nv.

I didn't realize just how good my Mesa sounded until I installed these tubes!!! These tubes sound way better than the EL34's I recently had installed. My amp sounds amazing on stage now!!!
