Re: Mark V as a low volume practice rig

The Mark V makes a fabulous practice amp.

Re: Upgrade from Express Plus 5:25 to Mark V:35?

Well you do get the GEQ. Oh, wait a minute.
You do get selectable wattages. Oh, wait.


Seriously, I liked the clean, crunch and blues channel on the 5:50 I had but it’s hard to find a bad sound in the MarkV.

Re: Which Mark series if I don't use Mark IV and Extreme?

I’m going to state the obvious and say an older Mark IIC+ will nail Mark IIC+ tones. :)

Seriously, any Mark series amp you mentioned will get you there. They all share the same DNA.

Re: Mark V Channel Switching via Fractal (FX8)

The FX8 has two relay outs on the back. Put a 1/4” cable out of each relay out to the Mark V channel 2 and 3 inputs on the back of the amp. FX8, 2 relay outs, 2 regular cables, 2 inputs on the back of your amp. It’s that simple.

Re: JP2c bedroom volumes?

My MarkV35 doesn’t really open up until the master is at least 9:00, which is loud. I’m using an attenuator at home and I’m getting excellent low volume tone. I’m sure you could do the same with a JP2.

Re: Ernie Ball Music Man Majesty Monarhy

I haven't played a Majesty but I'd like to. Music Man makes an excellent guitar. I own three different MM models and I'd put the quality of these up there with any other company. If you have played a JP model then you should have an idea of the neck shape. It's the same as the neck shape on the Maje...

Re: Mark V:25 + Attenuator

Yes I'm totally satisfied with both. For knocking the volume down they both work great but the PS gives you many more options.

Re: Mark V:25 + Attenuator

I haven't tried the Rockcrusher but when I'm playing my Mark V35 at low volumes I play through an attenuator. I personally think my amp sounds better with the master volumes above 9:00. I've used both an SPL Reducer and recently bought the Powerstation. If your just looking to attenuate, the SPL Red...
