TC-50 clip

Short one but I really like this: https://soundcloud.com/dlpasco/mesa-tc-50-demo.

Les Paul Standard straight into the amp, clean channel and then red channel.

I wish the Mark V had pull pots

I wish that I could use Pull Bright, Treble Shift, Bass Shift, and Pull Deep on my Mark V channels instead of having to deal with hard-wired combinations. I feel like I could do some more interesting things with Clean mode on Channel 1 and IIC+ mode on Channel 3 (being able to engage Pull Deep on II...

Re: Mesa MarkV / Saturation 'mod'

I thing that most do not understand the effects of using the 12AT7 in place of a 12AX7 in their Mark V 90W. "Oh, that has lower gain, I want more gain not less" is the common comment I have read in Facebook where the 12AT7 mod is mentioned. Perhaps some of those that state the 12AT7 mod are followe...

Re: Problems with your Mark V...it's you.

I love this post so much. Thank you for saying all of this. I hate the fact that it took me so long to get comfortable with this amplifier. It's got everything I was looking for in it there, I just needed to stop using such extreme settings. I do use AT7s in v4 and v6, though, and I look to Mark IV ...

Re: What I've learned about the Mark III

I sent my IIC+ in and Mike did a switchable C++ mod: pull deep toggles it on and off, and he moved the normal pull deep switch to the midrange knob. It works very well. With the settings I mentioned above, I'm able to get a good feel out of my blue stripe III if I dial in enough volume for the amp t...

Re: What I've learned about the Mark III

I actually haven't done any mods to it yet, although R2 definitely sounds appealing.

What I've learned about the Mark III

I'm pretty wiped out right now, but this has really been on my mind lately. I have now owned: A blue stripe Mark III Two different Mark Vs Two different Mark V:25s Two different JP-2Cs A Mark IIC+ Selling and rebuying amps was an expensive and probably stupid process. My credit cards are finally pai...

Mark V ground loop hum?

I'm getting a wicked hum on my 90 Watt Mark V when I plug into the Slave Out, which I do *not* get when I plug into the fx loop send. Besides the hum, the slave out sounds better for what I'm using it for than the fx loop output, and I also want to be able to this with the fx loop completely disable...

Re: Road King ii v2 vs TC-100

The RK Modern voicing is dark but heavy AF. I found it to be plenty articulate, particularly when I kept the gain around 1 or 2 o’clock, tops, and used a boost.

I stopped using the geq with edge mode and I am a lot happier with it.

I've played a blue stripe and a purp, and honestly, I think I preferred the purp.

Mark III R2

Okay, here it is: no Mark has a better crunch tone than the III.

Re: Not much love for EDGE Mode usually, but...

I have found that Edge mode is the most useful mode on my Mark V! This weird revelation came as I realized I was looking for a ‘natural breakup’ mode for classic low-gain rhythm sounds and bluesy leads. I was shocked how much this mode liked humbuckers and singles, how well it took overdrive and fu...

Re: Mark IIC+ vs Mark V C+ Mode

It'd be interesting to hear the V in IV mode, triode, compared to the IC+ with PULL DEEP engaged (not sure if it was engaged already or not).

Re: Mark V owner review of JP-2C (multi page post)

I have twins..... How cool is that. I will have to compare the two vertical 212 to the one OS Recto 412 and then the combination of one Vert 212 and the Horizontal 212. So far the most aggressive tone yet came from the Vertical and Horizontal 212 cabs combined. I did play though the new cab at lunc...
