Re: Mark V vs. 35 Cleans

Might ch.1 in tube rectifier mode soften it out some? I just realized I'd been using the diode mode for cleans for quite some time and need to revisit this. :>)

The channel 3 Pentode Triode modes..

Reading the Mk V manual it doesn't seem clear if the channel 3 Pentode / Triode modes apply to both the 45 and 100 watt modes?
It refers to the configuration of the 45 watt's middle pair power tubes, but also in the 100 watt mode?
Thanks

Re: Recording questions - two channels, one take

I think what I was hearing in the two tracks was a phasing thing. I moved one track ever so slightly and could change the tone, and I moved it a little bit more and the tone would change. It sounded like a.., wait for it... a phaser effect. Well, there you go. Learn something new every day. Might j...

That looks to me more like having been scratched off?

Re: Anyone use Channel 3 for low to medium gain?

Yes. Ch3 in MkIV mode for a nice 'crunchy I like. Gain about 9:30-10:00.
But I seldom use anything in the highest gain ranges so it's not like I'll miss what most folks go to Ch3 for.

Re: Variac mode question

Thank you Sir! 'Question came up for my mind when someone on a form asked about the use of variacs. I played with one on a Twin for a bit but that was years ago.

Variac mode question

Does it reduce voltage to the entire amp, of just certain sections or circuits?
The manual has a fairly straight forward statement about it which leads me to think it may indeed mean everything sees lower voltage, just wondering.
Thanks

Re: New Mark V Owner

First- I'm really a novice to the Mk V.. compared to folks here.
That out of the way..
I found one of my fave moderate gain tones -ironically maybe? was in ch 3 -gain low, Mk IV mode.

Re: NAD - Lonestar Special "Short Head?"

My LSS combo is that size cab. I guess I could have gotten in on the last of a limited run or something, never saw another one.

Re: LSS only works in 30w mode?!?!?

Mine was blowing Rec tubes. They suggested a Copper cap SS instead of tube Rec. I haven't had any problem since. My Fender amps have original Rec tubes in them from when I bought them in the 70s. For $2K, I am not sure why this amp is high maintenance. One of the reasons I got rid of the Fender Vib...

Re: LSS only works in 30w mode?!?!?

Rabinnh' mentioned changed tone with his SS rectifier..? The two threads could pretty much be combined.. So I'm curious. Lots of other amps -Mesa's or other, are getting along pretty well with the current available tube versions..? One other if I may. Might there be a chance the SS version might res...

Re: Mesa now says to use solid state rectifier in LSS

FWIW my LSS (2009 approximately), went through two of them right off. Also some resistors burned and had to be up sized, but IIR that was a separate issue. Tech -shoot, that's Shane / Tube Sonic may as well give'em a bump! :>) ..got me a pair of NOS, I'm still running solid on the first one. Coming ...
