Re: MKV EQ switching issue - please help

I actually had something similar and it turned out to be the rectifier tube. Not sure why but I replaced it and all my eq switch issues went away.

Re: New boogie

Why not check tubes? Replace fuse. Try again.

Re: The Mark V in general.

When I first got my Mark I realized right amp that my playing and technique were sounding awful. So much so in fact, I would not want to play it as much as my XXX. In the end I continued to work with it and after about a month I started to see big results with improved playing and greater rewards fr...

Re: Mark V Graphic EQ Problem

Yeah I did. Started appearing on channel 2 and eventually 3 as well. Unfortunately I ultimately had to take it to a authorized repair place. I think it was a relay or diode issue.

Re: Purchasing Full Set of Tubes for Mark V

Been using Eurotubes sets for my Mark. They resell JJs. They have been solid so far.

Re: Resin on tube sockets?

Am wondering if it’s something with the Eurotube valves I buy. I noticed now they are stamping their name on the lower plastic rings right below the glass. Wondering if that where the resin is coming from. I’ve never seen it before on my other heads but I dont have the labeled tubes in those.

Resin on tube sockets?

Was doing my annual tube refresh in my 90 watt head and noticed some kind of sticky brown resinous stuff on the power tube sockets. Anyone ever experience this and is it normal?

Re: Mark V with Revv g3/4 pedal

Honestly I don’t think the Mark V likes distortion or OD pedals much. Gets too mushy. Unless you are dialed waaay back on gain and even then I prefer the gain on both channels 2-3 over pedals. I do run a mojo mojo of on channel two for solos but i have gain in mark 1 mode about 1 o’clock max. Even t...

The other thing you could do is sell it to me for a dollar if you don’t like it so much. 😂

Re: Mark V distasteful overdriven buzz

Presence and treble you can play with first off. I really back off the graphic eq treb for all channels anyway. To be honest there are so many ways to make the V sound sweet or sh!t i cant count them. Takes alot of patience. Bit the rewards from this amp are superior to anything I’ve ever owned incl...
