W/D/W home rig - 3 amps - what dry cab?

Hi, So, i have 3 amps: 1) Mesa Boogie Mark V 2) Mesa Boogie Dual Recto Reborn 3) EVH EL34 100W (soon to be purchased) I´ll build a W/D/W rig for home playing in order to retain the punch and clarity of each selected amp. I`m thinking a relatively compact rig, because too much volume can become overw...

Re: Problems with your Mark V...it's you.

So, yes, he knows his Marks and he knows how to get great tone from his guitar and he is a heavy picker. Miles learned some things from Slash, pick the strings like you mean it (if I remember correctly). Στον πουτσο μου ρε βλακα. Και τι μου το λες? Θιχτηκες? :lol: Hey man, whatever works for you. T...

Re: Just bought my first Mesa, a Quad Preamp, struggling to get diverse tones from it.

Channel 1, the MK IIC, the only thing I've been able to get out of it is a very convincing Metallica lead tone. Channel 2 lead is very lacklustre. Ive read these amps are like chamaleons and can do a big variety of tones, Im not getting that so far. Ive tried dialling in different high gain tones, ...

Re: Which attenuators?

I think your best bet would be the fryette PS-2, as far as tone quality is concerned for the overall attenuated sound coming from your speaker cabinet. Other than that, it's a rabbit hole.. You could also try the reamp solution. You can take the signal from your amp (fx send for preamp only sound or...

Hi there,

Have you seen this?

I would personally go with BOSS’s Waza Tube Amp Expander though:

Re: Problems with your Mark V...it's you.

PLAY LIKE YOU MEAN IT. If you want to play aggressive music, dig in, play with conviction, use high output pickups, and get those strings MOVING. Next time you want to play Metallica riffs through a mark and you’re thinking to yourself “why does my Mark V not sound like the IIC+ on Master of Puppet...

Re: Mark III blue stripe vs Mark IV??

Maybe you love your amp to death, that's great.
For me, mk4 it's all about ch3. Everyone knows that. Ch1 clean is too compressed & second channel = who gives a f%&# 👍🏼

Re: Mark III blue stripe vs Mark IV??

I don't regret selling it though..
Maintenance issues for such an old amp, tone inconsistency and ONLY 1 awesome tone, made me sell this thing. Otherwise it would just be a luxury keeping it.

New format is great but it's a little bit strange to me that the user's info is on the right side now. Anyone else feeling the same?
I actually like this change. The eye goes straight into the discussion topic, rather than the poster and his personal info (which is rather secondary/useless info).

Re: Mesa MarkV / Saturation 'mod'

...you really have to try the GZ34 rectifier tube... it makes the 10Watt mode so much bigger - it made it my favorite mode.A view month ago I finally found the key to (hardware-) mod this amp and throw out the parts that from my perspective don't belong there. Since then, I'm struggeling with mysel...
