Re: FX Loop light on my Mark V ON all the time

Hi guys, I have a minor issue with my Mark V 90. The FX loop light on the right side of the amp seems to be ON all the time, even when the FX loop is not engaged . Has anyone faced this kind of issue before ? When I DO engage the FX Loop , the light just gets a bit brighter. I don't have a tech nea...

Re: Mark V with Revv g3/4 pedal

Dunno much about the RP other than it shares the same processor as the GSP. Don't know if it has the "amp driver" model in it or not. Maybe not as i think it was added to the GSP as part of the unofficial beta updates an employee of digitech done on the side. Anyhoo, i would guess that if you do tr...

Re: Changing V1 preamp tube is risky

I have not removed the chasis ever in my 5+ yrs of owning it.. here is how you do it.. for amp head only. Step 1 : Turn the amp upside down and let it sit such that the tube sockets point up. Step 2 : Remove all power tubes n rectifier tube Step 3 : Reach in with hands and slowly pull out V1. Rememb...

Re: Mark V with Revv g3/4 pedal

Never really liked flavoured OD's into my V. Clean boosts do it for me on ch1 and 2. Nothing on 3. I use "Amp driver" on the GSP, no idea what it's modelled after, possibly the MXR microamp of the 80's. Pushing crunch ch 2 with that definitely gets that screaming Marshall vibe. Sorry to not really ...

Re: Mesa MarkV / Saturation 'mod'

Been saying that for ages. V4 + V7 = Turning it up to 11. 8) I am very excited for this now. Is v7 accessible without removing the chassis? Cheers Themi I usually remove all the power tubes n the rectifier tube and reach in with a flashlight. Not the most convenient but gets the job done. Plus, I h...

Re: Mark V with Revv g3/4 pedal

The G3 is suppose to be a flavour of the 5150 series, while G4 is similar to a Recto.. demos of both pedals sound nice.. but havent seen anyone try it with a Mark V..

Demos on youtube sound enticing but every time I power up my amp, The red channel goes - “Nah, I got you covered” :lol:

Re: Mark V Stressing Me Out

Replace the powertubes and you should be fine. Mesa supplies matching power tubes. If you can replace both pairs, even better.

Re: Best Delay for Mv in Fx Loop?

For those who own a DD3, does anyone notice a slight muddiness of the output when the DD3 is used in the fx loop ?

Re: Mesa MarkV / Saturation 'mod'

Its really aggressive, big and smooth. And yes raw in the 'How in your face is it?' department. It reminds me of Post-Mod V25 on crunch maybe with a bit of midboost and a TS9 in the front end.. Its the 60w only version. Fully loaded other than that though. Very IIc+ Especially with the Pull Deep/Br...

Re: Mesa MarkV / Saturation 'mod'

I got a Red Stripe Mark III yesterday. Forearmed with a bit of research knowledge from along this and other trails, I took the AT7 out of the Mark V:25 and lobbed it in the PI slot for the III. Same effect. Smooth creamy vintage liquidy heaven. Massively increased playability. Heavenly. So down to ...

Re: Mark V (AT7) vs JP2C video

Thanks for the video. For some reason I prefer the Mark V here.

So the JP2C had no EQ at all ?
