Re: 2 X 12 CAB for Mark IV?

I recently picked up an used Recto 2x12 with V30's. Before getting it I was only running my Mark IV head into a Mesa Thiele 1x12 with a C90 in it (closed back).

Re: 2 X 12 CAB for Mark IV?

With the Mark IV I am playing hard rock. Lots of overdrive but maybe not as tight as Metallica or a Metal sound in general. Think Chevelle, Alice in Chains, King's X. Alice in Chains has that "grind" that I love. I also really dig Alter Bridge's tone which I know is all Recto. When I first got this ...

Mark IV B volume / output issues

Greetings, I bought an used Mark IV B short head back in April. After a gig I noticed that the lead drive knob got sheared off somehow. I ordered a new pot from Mesa Boogie and had it installed. All seemed fine but I have noticed that every now and then it seems like I loose some gain or output, lik...
