Re: Just got Mark V + 2x12 Recto Vertical Slanted

Have the same setup. Perfect for gigging. Amazing sound once the speakers get broken in. Congrats!

Re: What's your favourite Ibanez guitar for metal?

Mostly been using my RG920QMZ with a Bareknuckle Holydiver in the bridge and Emerald in the neck. However, last year I picked up an old, electric blue RG470 with and amazing neck. I'm in the process of putting ceramic BKP Blawkhawks and a Cobra middle coil, and replacing the worn out, crap lo-trs II...

Re: The bold/thick/bright switches... do they do anything?!

I agree with the above, but you're likely going to have a difficult time hearing it through headphones. You really need to be pushing air through a cab. The bright on channel three adds a noticable bite, almost like the high-mids switch on a Suhr Koko booster. Great palm-muted riffing. The thick swi...

Re: What effects do you use and what it does for you.

I've used a ton of great pedals in the past, but since getting the Mark V most have been cut out. I like that. I still use: Morley/Vai's Bad Horsie 2 Wah - awesome for high gain lead playing, and the ability to set a second wah boost/contour is a nice bonus for adjusting to a better clean sound. Xot...

Re: Not exactly my proudest moment....

Reminds me of a recent embarrassing moment during which I'd set my rig up for a soundcheck, exactly the way I've always done it, but could get absolutely zero signal to the house. I was even getting signal on the Two Notes Torpedo Live input meter from the amp/board, so I knew I was good there. Spen...

Re: RA-100 w/ Suhr guitar - live video - thoughts?

Hey man, thanks for posting these. Not only do you guys sound tight, but I'm looking at getting a Suhr modern here soon, and wanted a good example of what it might sound like in a mix. I'll be using a MkV head, and swamp ash/maple instead of the GG's mahogany, but I'm sure they both sing. Does yours...

Re: Mesa tubes or others? Full re-tube, what to buy?

Besides needing some volume to open up, do you ever play live? I've found that the same tones I wouldn't really like at home just really sound great in a live mix. It's the pronounced midrange.

Re: Need some help from MKV owners

Maybe I'm just use to tube amps that have a lot of saturation. This one doesn't seem to unless I dime the gain. I got the thing back today and there's nothing wrong with it I'm told. I find that the best way to get saturation on the MkV is to boost ch2/3 with a dimed Tubescreamer or something like ...

Re: Need Settings for Country Rock - Edge Mode????

Hi All! I am looking for a great Country Rock sound. I am looking for something that has a fat sound that is good for rhythm's and lead. Something with medium gain that cleans up well. I am using a Strat and Tele. I am thinking the Edge Mode might be best. Thanks in ADvance I've played that style o...

Re: Need some help from MKV owners

Why would you be surprised? The manual even talks about tube squeal if the gain and treble are pushed to high together, so why be surprised if you're using the settings you gave?

Re: Mark V Question

Yeah I think your right. For some reason I let the amp sit to long without selecting a channel. I hope that is all it was I have a new Mark V head and I have a question. I turned the amp on a waited about a minute for it to warm up and started playing and I noticed all the channel lights on the foo...

Re: it came with el34s

New, they should've come with 6l6s, but 34s are better, imo. The drive is crunchier, warmer, and less grainy. The cleans are beautiful with the 6s, but I just can't handle the fizz that comes with them on channel 3 especially. The cleans aren't bad with the 34s, so I stick with them because the gain...
