Re: NEWS ABOUT MESA BOOGIE MARK V

Smoking crack? You need to settle down there, sparky. I was simply saying amp sales will decline due to the current attitude of the market. Guitar amplifiers are a luxury item. I'm sure as soon as your mommy and daddy kick you out of the basement, you'll begin to realize what exactly I'm talking ab...

Re: Super Clean MkIIC+ Simul Class Combo w/EVM-12l $2000

Brett, Your comments are totally inappropriate. It seems yopu don't know as much as you think you know. Most on this forum are great people just looking to buy/sell Mesa gear for a fair price and share knowledge. I have had great experiences on this forum making deals and meeting great people. Plea...

Re: Mark V tidbits

... I personally thought the Mark IV sounded better for rhythm playing and the C+ for leads ... At the exact same settings? Anyhow, as far as we know, even though it may be the exact same circuit, the controls (not to mention push-pulls, etc.) may be very different. Plus, even though there is a not...

Re: Roadster Channel 4 again.........

I found this to be the case with all the rectifier amps I have played as well. That's why I play my Quad and Studio Pre. I get full on saturation on 6!

Re: NEWS ABOUT MESA BOOGIE MARK V

maybe he was refering to the world financial crisis. i'm sure people's demand(as in the will to buy such an amp) still exists but with no money to buy its tough.. The beauty with Mesa gear is it seems it doesn't lose it's value especially if you have something they don't make anymore. So you can al...

Re: Mark V tidbits

" thought about this several months ago - to have a clean and two cascading gain channels. now it looks like LEAD is just "Gain" not "Lead Drive" and "Lead Gain"..." :twisted: I wondered when some one would bring this up ? :evil: The gain and drive thing that is. I am confused are you in agreement ...

Re: Mark V tidbits

Well you apparently haven't played both of these amps. Even with the same settings they are two completely different amps and also sound completely different. Being able to switch between modes would be a big plus. I've owned 2 IIC+ heads, probably a good 4-5 IV's, and my friends have owned (and ow...

Re: Hold on a second (Mark V thread)........

Don't get me wrong the C+ is the best sounding amp I ever heard but you can't get a good clean if you want a good lead tone and if you want a good clean tone your lead tone sucks. I don't find this to be true at all and have two C+'s which I play through regularly. Both are different configs too, a...

Re: MK V.....

I put money down on a Mark V last week. I was told that anywhere between 60 to 90 days after Namm i'll have mine. I heard a certain someone's MK V without it really being dialed in. It sounded good. I think I'm still stuck on Original IIC+'s In any event it'll be sweet to run in stereo with my new ...

Re: Mark V tidbits

I don't understand the need to footswitch between modes. So what if you could switch between IIC+ and IV modes? Your settings never change, so it won't be some huge, distinct tonal difference. Would you really have some big advantage by being able to switch between IIC+ and IV modes in the same son...

Re: Mark IV lead tone switching

This is the very reason I bought a Quad Preamp. Don't need any OD pedals to get it fully saturated. I only have the gain on 7 on that thing for rhythms and leads.

Re: Hold on a second (Mark V thread)........

well tone is subjective but I've only played thru Mark III & IV. metallica MOP is not a straight up IIC+ tone AFAIK (slaved into JCM800). where can I here a straight up IIC+ tone (I'm guessing DT??) that uses only that amp's power section? DT's 'Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence' is all IIC+. Best gu...

Re: Hold on a second (Mark V thread)........

Yeah the article was over at the Petrucci forum and it was what his tech said. Don't get me wrong the C+ is the best sounding amp I ever heard but you can't get a good clean if you want a good lead tone and if you want a good clean tone your lead tone sucks.
