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: Mark V & Pedals.

Has anyone tried the Friedman BE OD or Suhr Riot with the Mark V ? Been a bit intrigued by these two pedals lately..

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 ?

Re: Mesa MarkV / Saturation 'mod'

Thought I'd do a video with the 12AT7 in V6. Don't have a recording set-up at home so its recorded using my Note 5. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mDLozNfO13U&feature=youtu.be I haven't played for a couple of weeks so ignore the clams. It sounds much better in person but hopefully this vdo gives an...

Re: A Lemon?

Apeman is using a Mahogany body guitar, so that might make a difference even if you are using the same settings. Like Apeman, I have the 12AT7 at V6 and settings are quite similar, except presence is at 1 0' Clock. Regardless, it does sound like your Mark V might have something lacking with all the ...

Re: Mesa MarkV / Saturation 'mod'

No need for apologies.. just saying it as I see it.. I might have come across a bit harsh, so my apologies for that too..

It would be fun to be in your position though.. ha..
