Re: MARK FIVE 25 TONE SETTINGS THREAD

Welcome to the board. Hope that was a typo and you ordered a 12AT7. It already has a 12AX7 in it, so that would only be a spare. If you did order an AT7, I strongly urge you to play the amp a LOT before doing the swap. Get to know it inside out. There's an amazing amount of tonal and gain variation ...

Re: MARK FIVE 25 TONE SETTINGS THREAD

Couple more days of experimenting from this base. There are some great tones of the D style just a tweak or two from the base settings listed. Some really cool stuff! Switch to Mark IV and add a little gain... add just a bit of treble and/or presence... WOW! Back to Xtreme, and more open/less compre...

No help along those lines, but a Roland Micro Cube lasts hours and hours on one set of batteries.

Re: MARK FIVE 25 TONE SETTINGS THREAD

FYI, those settings are VERY nice! But (maybe because it's a Tele forum) I needed a bit more treble or presence. The pic posted was low volume. Turning the master up really opens the amp up and fills out the lows so some more treble or presence was needed when I tried it with my PRS NF3. This is gre...

Re: Mesa MarkV / Saturation 'mod'

You don't need to solder or do anything tricky. You could just clip one leg of the cap. But if for some reason you don't like it, you'd then have to replace it since it would probably be ruined (the cap you clipped the leg on). But it's super easy. Or should be.

Re: Mesa MarkV / Saturation 'mod'

Yeah, don't be fooled by the 10 watt setting. I tried some 10 watt, master dimmed settings... louder and more ballsy than many 25 watt amps! Big glass/big iron!

Re: Mesa MarkV / Saturation 'mod'

Managed to get out and jam. The v4 90w in action. Extreme mode. Entire band mic'd and PA'd. Except the Boogie. (Not enough mics) I turned up to jam and was un-PA'd but 90w mode was able to see me through easily. 1x12 widebody ported, stacked on the 2x12 recto. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0SdLYP...

Re: Mesa MarkV / Saturation 'mod'

That's really interesting because I haven't tried it yet since the AT7, but I found some great tones in the past with the W curve on C3. Your going the opposite way. I've never even tried that.

Re: Mesa MarkV / Saturation 'mod'

That might explain why I didn't like the new Mesa AT7 in the big Mark V nearly as well as the old Mullard AT7 in the V25! Nowhere near the change in tone that I heard when I dropped the Mullard in the V25. Guess I got to track down some more NOS AT7s. 8)

Mark V deserves a passenger seat ride. Pony up that passenger seat and you're gigging with your pants down. Or top.

Re: Anyone use a Mark 5 35 combo with external cab?

It's not quite that simple, but if the amp is working for you as it is, that's great. I changed it in both of mine and may never go back. And I use the high gain channel the most. They just sound better with the AT7 in V4 of the Mark V or V2 of the Mark V25. Turn the gain up just a little and you ha...
