Re: Mark V + external power amp for quick EL34/6L6 switching?

Don't Mess Boogie themselves make a piece of equipment to do just this? Isn't that what the amp switcher or whatever it's called does?

Re: Mesa California Tweed 23 1x12 Cab

I would say that this is as good a place as any to pose your question, you will soon be driving it with a Mk V:25 after all! Cant speak as to the cab or speakers in question as i have neither of those, but, the Mk V sounds glorious through my setup so I'm sure you'll enjoy it through yours!

Re: Question About Mark V 25 Head

I'm very confident you're going to love it. I'd wanted a boogie, specifically one of the Mark series, ever since I first heard Master of Putters back in the eighties but could never afford one. Finally 6 (ish) years ago a landed in a position where I could afford one nd have never looked back. Sure ...

Re: Question About Mark V 25 Head

Chappers comments were a bit misleading in my opinion, I would say it's more accurate tosay that the Mk 5,25 is not "solely" a bedroom amp but more than capable of hanging with a full band. To second Markageddon, and he should know, these amps can definitely drop down very quiet with a tweak to your...

Re: Mark V: No Front Lights, No Fan, Just a Hum from the Speaker

I'm no electrical expert but I would say it's the nature of the beast unfortunately. It's a very complicated price of equipment with hundreds of parts in a very harsh environment. Components can and do fail, in all amps. What country are you in? I would recommend using an official service centre, bu...

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: Finally happy with my V

Great to hear. It is a great amp, not for everyone, but a great amp still. AT7 and direct to the floor are the two key factors with this amp. Enjoy it mate. The wildhearts are an awesome band!

Re: Mesa MarkV / Saturation 'mod'

Great to see this thread still catching people's eye. Just saw it referenced over on a different forum too. Helps to prove the AT7 works as described for sure!

Re: Changing V1 preamp tube is risky

Very tricky job to change v1 without removing chassis. Even in the combo it's difficult.
