Re: Which pedal comes closest to the Mk IIC+ lead tone for you?

Lets say we are plugging into a clean twin, what pedal for you comes closest to your Mk IIC+ lead channel? For me its the Fulltone Fulldrive II but its been a long time since I went pedal shopping. Yesterday I would've said f-o-r-g-e-t it. But on youtube I fell over some Fender Bassman and Deluxe R...

Re: New Boogie owner + settings help

Hey all and merry christmas. Got a big surprise this morning in the form of a new dual rectifier and rectifier 2x12 cab. The tones I have got out of it so far are very pleasing but because I am coming from a solid state line 6 spider I have limited knowledge of how to EQ the tones I am after. I'm t...

Re: Limitations of the Triaxis

I have a few comments on this. I have a TriAxis (v2 with the recto board - no phat mod) and a 2:Ninety. I have been using this combination with 2 Mesa recto 4x12 cabs and love it. I have been reading how great the Mark V's are and finally broke down and got one. I like to research things a lot, but...

Re: 5:50 = Too much bass?

Went to the store today and had a chance to try out the 5:50 and WOW what an amazing amp!!! I had previously only played the 5:25 and almost bought it at the time but held back cause I couldn't quite get an SRV tone out of it(a sound I want in my amp) but the 5:50 seemed to be more open and I could...

Re: Mark Series Vs. Rectifier Series

I had a discussion with Don at Haggerty's Music. We discussed the difference in eq from the Mark to the Rectifier Series. In his own words, playing lead on the Mark was like having the notes jump off the fretboard, effortless, seemed to allow him to play better than normal and most people coming in...

Re: 2 Chan. Dual Rec, and Rectoverb Effects Loop Feedback

Hello, I currently own a 2 Chan. Dual Rec, and a Rectoverb head. On my pedal board I run a TC Electronics Nova Delay and Verb through the effects loop. Previous to this I had a Boss DD20. No matter what delay or verb pedal I put in the loop, I get a throbbing feedback loop on most settings. I've tr...

Re: Mesa STR-415's?

I replaced the tubes in a guy's Vibrolux Reverb the other day. He gave me the old ones. They were STR-415's, Made in USA! He said that I put the tubes in that amp about 7 years ago and has never really played it much because he has about 20 amps. They look brand new. Does anyone here know who these...

Re: New amp time!!!!!

well, ok, i'll grow some balls and actually make a decision, i'll go with the MK5. it's newer technology, easier to adjust on the fly, and the tone is...well...a boogie! i got my triaxis when the only available combo back then was the mk4, now that the 5 is out and having used the triaxis and mk5, ...

Re: Is the Dual Rectifier still the right amp for me ?

Ok folks, first thanks for all the answers so far. What I did today was to play the amp mostly over the Boogie 2x12 and to try a Boost in front, actually the Boss OD-3 (borrowed it from my music shop). - the Boogie 2x12 sounds better than my H&K (no surprise) when also run with only 2 speakers (I g...

Re: Going Mark Series ?

Full Support of going from Rectifier to Mark Series. You'll never look back! :mrgreen: Yeah I agree! I have a C+, Triaxis, Quad, Dual Recto (2ch) and a Subway Rocket. I really like my DR - but that's the reason I went away from Marshall - it was Marshall, Marshall, or Marshall - it's one sound with...

Re: First Post (Mark III content)

Thanks for the thoughtful response. The basic tones I need are: 1. Clean as possible, 'sparkly' I suppose but with enough mid to cut through (specifically for ska rhythms). I don't mind a tiny bit of grit when I really dig in. 2. Heavy rhythm, tight with lots of gain and chuggy palm mutes. 3. Shred...

Re: Couple of questions about the Mark V

Satch tones on the Mark V is doable. It has alot more to do with the feel and the technique. Here's an older YouTube clip of a gentleman getting there using an old Boogie Studio Pre. http://youtu.be/HpCc7_0Cmuc - skip to 2:28 ( or watch the whole thing for Boogie entertainment :wink: ) Play around ...
