Re: FS: Mesa Professional High Gain Amp Switch

Bump for a cool piece .Any pictures? The one i had could only switch preamp/ line signals.It has no load box in it to take load off amp heads.Is yours different?

Re: Mark V:35 Review and thoughts

just stumbled onto your post. the 25 and 35 will have a somewhat "smaller" feel and headroom than the v..This isn't a bad thing for some,you may like that.The 35 isn't nearly as "lunch box" size as the 25 but still small and weighs more than a 25,less than a v.The sweet spot on a 35 ( master approx ...

Re: Mesa Mark IV and pedals/stompboxes

I cant attest for fuzz type pedals into the iv,but man, does it really take well my friedman overdrive and diezel vh4 pedals in ch 2. mode.They also sounded good obviously in ch1.I like these overdrive pedals in ch 2 a bit better,cause you add just a teeny tiny bit of natural amp grit to the pedal.I...

Re: Mark V35 ordered!

I plan on buying both at some point the funding permits it.Plan is to order a nice flamed wooden shell and cab for the living room in v25,then for gigging out a regular 35.The 35 is prob a tad more versatile w/the 4 84s,solo boosts,and full cab clone.But cranked up,the feel of the 4 84's workin will...

Re: Mark V:25 vs Mark V:35

It's no surprise they sound so similar, the preamp should be pretty much identical. The only real difference is the power amp. You're going to have to turn the amps up pretty loud to get the characteristics of their power amps to become more noticeable. Mainly getting the transformer and power tube...

Re: Mark V:25 vs Mark V:35

I'm curious... when you double the output wattage the increase in sound pressure is 3 dB. So, in theory, the perception in actual sound pressure level (at max wattage) between the V:25 and V:35 would be neglible. I'd be interested to know what else is going on? Is it the 4 vs 2 output tubes (less p...

Re: Mark V:25 vs Mark V:35

For me,I'm sure I'll probably end up buying both.The a/b we did at the store speaks for itself,all present did hear some differences in them. I'm just greatful and thankful to have been a part of it.There was no "loser" in that a/b. They both win in everyone's opinion that was there that day.It was ...

Re: Mark V:25 vs Mark V:35

Re: Mark V:25 vs Mark V:35

Im gonna buy one of these.So now,after some time has gone by since they've both been out,what can you all tell me about the actual "tone" differences in the two heads preferrably? Or is it just a "feel" thing cause of the iron and tube count? No answer is wrong here.Did anybody a/b them with all set...

Re: Mesa Simul Satellite head to rack version

You would be more than welcomed to demo the rig, if you're ever in the area.Its often been at a few studios in town and on occasion a gig or two.Congrats on your new guitar !
