Re: Thoughts on the Mesa "Boogie"

You sound big mad for no reason. And you sound wrong about a lot in this thread and the other "I hate C+" thread you have on here. 1. Boogiebabies is not Mike B. Mike B. Is not Boogiebabies. 2. The upgrade does not cost $1,000. It cost less than half that. 3. Boogies aren't based on a Twin. 4. A Mar...

Re: Tube rolling with my Mark IIc+....Suggestions?

You've got a good thing going with the Mullards. My favorite combo has been Mullards with Philips 7581a power tubes. More specifically v1-F91, v2-161, v3-I63, v4-I63, v5-F91. Tungsram ecc83 also works really well in the amp and for a time were the stock tube for the C+. Amperex are similar to the Mu...

Re: Original Mark II C+ vs. Mark II C Conversions, Any Differences?

Outside of the differences mentioned above involving the pcb, the differences are in the power transformer. Even a IIC with the RP11a board will most likely have a different pt, at least where the DRG and HRG are concerned. There may have been a couple IICs right at the end that got a 105 and a coup...

Re: Price check IIC converted to C+

Depends on a few things I guess. Availability being the biggest, but you already have one located so that is moot here I suppose. From what I've seen anywhere from $2000 (rare) to around $3000. I could see them going for more if someone really wanted it. I think $2500-3000 is a fair price as the ask...

Re: New MK IIC++ owner, need advice!

The difference is noticable, but it is still the same amp no matter what. Some tubes are a little clearer, others a little more grind, but it is all within a sound that is IIC+. I like tubes and I like rolling them but it is an expensive hobby if they aren't your thing. On stage no one is gonna notice

Re: New MK IIC++ owner, need advice!

I've been digging running Volume 1 a bit lower and lead drive higher lately. Vol 1- 5 pulled, T- 7 pulled, B- 0-2, M- 4-7, Master 5-6 pulled, Lead Drive 10, Lead Master 2-5 pulled. I live in the middle of nowhere ao I can open it up and it is something special when you can get the master up in the 4...

Re: Mark IV channel switching question?

You will need to leave the selector knob set to FT.SW. If you set it to this with no switches connected it should default to the Lead channel+EQ. If you plug in your tip to ground footswitch to the Rhythm 1 channel external switch you can jump between Lead and Rhythm 1. If you plug in your tip to gr...

Re: Mark IV A/B & B photos of back showing difference

AFAIK there really isn't an A/B. It's just what some people have ended up calling an early B with an attached power cord. The B changed the effects loop, added a reverb footswitch jack, and introduced the satellite output. The other changes were tweaks on the inside. Not saying A/B isn't a thing for...

Re: Fractal Audio FX8 - anyone else using one?

I have had a FX8 for a couple of months now. Never really used much in the way of effects but decided I wanted to mess about with them some. The reviews were stellar and it really was one of the cheapest ways to get a lot of high quality effects to try. So far I've pretty much just made huge ambient...

Not sure if that will get you there or not but I think it will. It sold in just a few hours after he posted it here. I personally think someone got a mighty fine deal on that one.

It's back on reverb again. New photos and listed as serial #12850. Listed at $4500. I looked him up on youtube and couldn't find a video demo with the C+ but he was on there playing so who knows. The ebay listing said relisted but once you click on view relisted item it says item was removed. On a m...
