Hello, does anyone own a mesa pulse series head and find that the input jacks fail every couple of months, they are made of plastic and I have to replace them often, it has two input jacks passive and active and when one goes out I can always use the other with a sound compromise, These are very expensive amps and I choose mesa over ampegs svt 3 pro with a $600.00 more price difference on the mesa. I contacted mesa and they didnt even want a reciept and anything and sent tubes, jacks, and shirts and gave me instuctions on the repair. This lasts for about 3-4 months then it ends up failing again, and when they fail(the input jacks) they squeal like hell!! No I dont run a 10 foot cord and pull on the fn thing I take very good care of it. For this reason I am thinking these amps are crap and anyone that likes amps that fail especially on stage get one of these models of mesa. My old ross rb-60 still works fine with 17 years under its belt at 1/8 the cost. The sound of the mesa is my kinda sound but the reliablity sucks!! The customer service from mesa is great, but does that matter with plasitc input jacks how many would you replace b4 trading for a ampeg. Maybe a reason why ampeg dominates? Even if you have to turn and press the ultra high/low during a performance to change sounds, and every one and there dog has the same rig, svt classic with svt 810. What would you guys do? This amp was at $2300.00 bought new in 02 failed 03 twice, 04 once and now again in 05, jan 06 still the active side is not working but i gave up and plugged into the passive input when it quits it will be a door stop.
