Thanks Mark,

Never thought that I’d get this amp back again. Pretty happy.

The Mesa completes my amp collection for now.

Got my Boogie Back

NAD and back again being a Mesa owner. I first bought this 1982 Mark IIB in 2011, traded it five years later for a vintage Fender amp. I regretted selling this amp ever since then. Even after owning a couple of Mark 1 RI's, another Mark IIB, and a Mark III. This amp is pretty unique, blue tolex, sil...

Where to recover tolex & grill cloth on my Mark IIB combo?

I love my Mark IIB combo, but it is a little road worn, and I want to get the cab recovered with the original white/cream colored tolex (as close as possible) and also recover the wheat grill cloth. Any suggestions on where to get this done? I would preferr to have this done more locally (central Fl...

Re: Yes or No - Simul-class?

I voted not Simul-Class.

Not a fan of the Class A tones at 15 watts on a Simul-Class amp.

Re: Mark III+ C27 Cap Question

Love to know this answer also since I am trying to tame the brightness of my new to me Mark III blue stripe. I did change out the two outer EL34's in my Sumul-Class amp, and to my ears, this change did seem to add some Fender sparkle and tone to the amp. I did read a Mesa bulletin recommending not t...

Re: New to me Mark III Blue Stripe (need your help)

Just from a theory side..... Pushing the tubes seems to be causing a volume drop from what I read. So to me I would start at one of these two points. V1 feeds pretty much everything after it. If that tube/tube socket or anything related to V1 is a place to start. Next thing is bass needs more power...

New to me Mark III Blue Stripe (need your help)

Hi all, I sold my Mark IIB back in April and picked up a near mint Mark III combo last weekend. It is a Simul-Class model, has an EVM12 speaker, and reverb. I've had a lot of trouble taming the excessive brightness of this amp. I've tried the Mesa recommended settings and these settings would just m...

Re: Mark IIB Preamp tubes

I can't help but my 1982 Simul-Class Mark IIB combo could some help in the gain department also.

I have a fresh set of Mesa tubes in my amp, great cleans but not so great overdrive at least at lower volumes.

Hope someone in the know responds to help us with overdrive issues witho a MKIIB.

Re: NAD Mark IIb

I own a 1982 Mark IIB Simul-Class combo. Mine was made in April and has Mark IIC knobs, blue tolex, and a silver grill.

I changed my amp over from the two EL34 and two 6L6 combination to a new quad set of Mesa 6L6's.

To me an improvement in tone, especially on the clean channel.

Re: Mark IIB at the Tech for a Checkup

Got the amp back. Sounds great with the four 6L6's in the Simul-Class amp.

Kind of surprised not more interest in the results of this change.

Re: Mark IIB at the Tech for a Checkup

Got my amp back from the tech that took well over a month to do the job but I amp pretty happy with the work. Changed out the two outer EL34's (Simul Class) and the inner 6L6's with a new quad of Mesa branded 6L6's, filter cap changes, a few preamp tubes, a general checkup, and a new blue indicator ...
