Re: Which Mark iv?

Yes, it is. The EV speaker is so much better than the C90 when using just one speaker. The difference in ch2 gain is not that much between the A & B versions. I much prefer earlier Mark IV's. They're not as compressed sounding as the later version.

Re: Simul Class C+

I think the tubes used would make a big difference. The recommended 415 6L6 in the inner sockets and some of the Siemens EL34 valves in the outer sockets is good. The class a does not sound like a quiet Simul-class, it has its own thing going.

Re: EVM 12L paired with 12S

It will sound great as both speakers are close in sound and sensitivity. Heavy though.

Re: Mark IV reverb question

Not normal. It's probably a bad tube.

Re: Opinions?: Mark V 90 vs Mini rectifier

I'd trade in an instant if I were you. The Mark V is twice as good as anything you own presently. It is an iconic amp whereas the other amps you listed are archaic old metal museum pieces, not modern metal mayhem like the Mk.V.

Re: Combo Shell for JP2C

Yes, it will fit in a Mark combo cabinet. I've done it. Here's the same headshell with a Mark IIC++ and then a JP2C. https://live.staticflickr.com/7846/45855568565_2159eb2fb0_w.jpg JP-2C checkerboard face plate by John Bazzano , on Flickr https://live.staticflickr.com/4870/46708311681_b5b823415a_w.j...

Re: Mark V:25 with an MXR 10 Band EQ?

Metallica used a parametric EQ for Master of Puppets. Extra bees a buzz', I love Dimebag's tone so I would encourage trying the GEQ anyway.

Re: Thoughts on the Mesa "Boogie"

Here's a recent (11/27/2019) video of my Mark IIC++ at the lowest volume, 0.0 on the master volume. If you like Metallica & Pantera, this amp is good for that.

Re: Need logo plate for .50 Caliber+ (also did presence mod)

I've re-covered heads and cabinets before in including the wicker grill. The key to getting the old tolex off is having the right stripper, I use wood glue to soften the old glue. The key to wicker is to get it wet for a least 2 hours in a bucket and then not to over stretch it when stapling it to t...
