Re: NCD - Mesa Thiele with Fillmore speaker for Mark V:35

Nice job. I really like my Theile with the C90 and the mini recto cab with the V30 combo for my Mark V:25. I think mixing cabs is the way to go with these amps!

Re: Great night out with the V25 tonight

It's amazing how much gain this amp has on tap. It's pretty ridiculous. Your gain tip is totally spot on. I've also found that the presence control can almost act a volume boost as it can give you just a little more bite to cut through the band mix (I think Elvis mentioned this as well in other post...

Which slip cover for Stiletto?

Which Mesa slip cover will fit my Stiletto Deuce Stage 1 Head?

http://mesa.stores.yahoo.net/vn-head.html

And are they slightly padded like the combo covers or is it just the nylon material?

Thanks!

Re: FX Loop w/Line 6 M5 or M9 (delay) - Help?

Which delays are you using? There are several models that actually are modelled to affect your tone as the real pedal would, then there are variations with "dry thru" in the name which should be pretty transparent. I used to have the m13 and I don't recall having to mess with any levels in the pedal...

Re: 1x12 Mini Recto Cab Logo Swap?

Nice Dom!

I think I'm going to leave the logo as is for now. I'm loving this mighty mini cab!

Rig configuration #1 - the reverse mini stack.

Re: 1x12 Mini Recto Cab Logo Swap?

I shall. I'm also thinking about creating a "reverse" stack with my Rectoverb 25 Combo on the bottom and the slant recto on top. I think the combo of open back Fillmore with closed back v30 should sound pretty sweet.

1x12 Mini Recto Cab Logo Swap?

I'm planning on picking up a 1x12 Mini Recto cab to go with my Mark V:25. I've seen some special orders of the cab with the Boogie logo in place of the Mesa Engineering one. If I buy a Boogie logo separately is it a direct swap? I know I can custom order but I'm impatient and would like to use the c...

Re: Mark V with Multi Effects 4 Cable

I use the HD500 4CM with all my amps. Main thing to get it sounding correct is to boost the FX send 6db. The FX are good quality and it's handy having the expression pedal built in for wah and volume control. I just picked up a Voodoo Lab control switcher so that I can switch amp channels with it no...

Re: Mini Rec + Five band EQ?

Honestly I think an OD in front for the Recto does more for the tone than an EQ. Obviously you can be pretty drastic with an EQ in the loop but to me at a certain point you're trying to fight the amps natural tone. I've been playing my Mini Mark a lot more too but I'm still going to keep the the Rec...

Re: nuff gain on the big daddy V? full V users only plz, nee

The heavy rhythm tone that made me always lust after a Mark was Pete Leoffler's (from Chevelle) tone. He's been using a Mark IV for a long time, though I think he's started using V's in recent years. I love that focused attack.
