Re: Help! Is my Mark IIb Simul-class or not?

There's always the chance someone screwed around with it, but those "Simul-class/Class A" plates don't exactly grow on trees so the simple answer is that yes, this is a Simul-class IIB. They didn't make individual manuals for each feature combination so I wouldn't worry about that part either. I'm s...

Re: WTB Old style Mesa/Boogie logo plate

The ones referenced above are the rectangle MESA/Boogie plates which they don't have listed on the web store (at least that I see).

I've got the shorter one if you are still looking... around 7.25" long.

Re: Opinions on the Mark IIB+ vs. Mack IIC+

Non-jokingly in the past you could get a IIB upgraded to IIC+ specs at Mesa, but they no longer have the parts. So you might be seeing different things depending on how knowledgeable/honest the owner/seller is. Could be a IIB actually upgraded to IIC+ specs (not sure if those we 100% the same or jus...

Re: The forgotten and unsupported pure MK II C

I could be misremembering, but I would swear I heard from people at Mesa directly that multiple Artists of the time wanted to return their original IICs before the plus (+) "fix" was made available. More anecdotal/second hand information, but it's been 35 years, there's more of that left than anythi...

Re: Need help IDing the amp.

It's hard to read that serial, but based on the Send/Return I would think that is a IIB.

Re: Questions/information on the Boogie MRK II Series

Funny to see a prices have almost exactly followed inflation. About $1,350 for a "fully loaded" hardwood combo in 1980, now it is about $4,000. The Mark V has a lot more features though.

Edit: Ignoring the hardwood option prices have come down a ton, but the hardwood upgrade itself has gone up a ton.

Re: Questions/information on the Boogie MRK II Series

I don't know that there is a full breakdown with every detail that was available back then, and speaking with people from Mesa that were around back then no one seems to remember every little detail either. I can say for sure I have seen Mark II amps with Imbuia, Padauk, Koa, and Oak hardwood cabs f...

Gone! Should we assume you convinced him to ship it to you? :wink:
It's still up there. I'm sure he would attempt ship if I offered some crazy number, but I've already overpaid for so many weird hardwood amps no one was interested in I can't being myself to do it again.

FYI, Sweetwater now allows their customers to post ads for free. It's more like Craigslist than Reverb or eBay as SW isn't included in the transaction at all. https://www.sweetwater.com/used/ Latest Mesa Boogie listings: https://www.sweetwater.com/used/listings?query=&page=1&sort=published_desc&face...

Blue Angel is sold. I can't believe I still have this Imbuia Thiele available... I guess the market really is softening this year! Not a bad one to keep I guess. :lol:

Re: Fake???

No, this is NOT an Aidean Zoom copy! This is a really old amp that actually predates what became the Mark I. The give away is the Level control, basically a second Master at the end of the preamp and coming AFTER the added booster stage. This is the configuration Randy came up with for Lee Michaels...
