This video quite literally made my day. That tone is brutal, thanks for sharing.

Re: New Old Amp Day: Quad

Ohh i see you're in Aust... same mate... is this the Quad pre that was on ebay 3 weeks ago sold for $760? Or the one at better music $1195? When my unit was stock lead 2 had 1/3 more gain than lead 1... since modding (BJ amps in Bris)... lead 1 has a touch more gain than lead 2... lead 2 sounds ful...

Re: New Old Amp Day: Quad

I’ve recorded a couple more clips. This is such an excellent preamp. It doesn’t have the compression you’d find in a newer mark. I’m generally using lead 2 which sounds very close to the mark IV when pull fat and pull bright are engaged set to mid gain. This clip is of the lead 1 or (iic+ circuit). ...

Re: New Old Amp Day: Quad

I'm really digging the quad pre. I recently recorded this riff to see how it recorded and if translated as well on the mic as it does in person. The riff itself is nothing special. I just wanted a combination of chords and palm mutes for the purpose of the tone demonstration. https://www.youtube.com...

Re: JP2C not what I expected - tube issue?

Have you pulled the gain knob? I find anything below 2oclock to be too low gain. I also find any of JPs instant gratification to be too low gain. Probably because he runs at a much higher volume to what I do. It also depends on the guitar and pickups. On my EBMMs 2oclock is enough. With evos I need ...

Check out setting the V on ch 3, extreme when using as power. It’s huge for the source preamp.
you know I typically don't run extreme mode on ch 3 and didn't checked it out with the C+ as the preamp, but will.... thanks!
+1 on this. Extreme sounds huge as a power amp.

Re: The one tone I can’t seem to get

I thought tweed captured this tone pretty well. Another option you could try is to use tweed for the dirty clean and then use unconventional settings on channel 2 for that to serve as your clean clean. It’s been a while but I think Clean can be achieved on any of the modes in channel 2 with the righ...

oh my god there is so much mesa hotness in that picture.
This is the full squad for now, sans the V which I sold a couple weeks back. It's pretty gnarly to say the least.

Re: Mark 2c+ - Guts shot questions - Boogiebabies

Nice amp! I see it doesn't have the bright reduction mod. And the 120 pf cap is out on the V2A too. What does that cap do anyway? Why was it taken out? Not sure man, far too technical for me. I found this on the guide for dummies, perhaps this is the reason? “Update: The dark brown preamp resistors...

Nothing sounds like a Boogie, nice playing! [/quote] Thank you! There's nothing like it. Or any boogie. Amazing and unique tone, versatility and tons of gain. Mesa as its best.

Re: Simul Class C+

Would appear a bit more complicated than I thought. There's no commentary on the c+ specifically but great insight into Class A and simulcasts.
