Mark IIc++ in LA area

Hello everybody,

I have a friend selling a Mark iic++ HRG head in the LA area. It was converted to ++ specs in 2014 by Mike B. Heres a link to the reverb sale. The amp is in fantastic shape!

Re: Thinking of selling the Mark iii coli..

Well I have sold a few Mark IIIs. The fully loaded ones I've sold have actually sold at 900 and 1000 (this one was a III+ mod) I see people listing fully loaded Mark IIIs for anywhere between 900 to 1500. I dont think 1500 is realistic. Those seem to just sit on reverb or ebay. I think 1500 is a rea...

Re: Mark III Simulclass vs Super 60

60W is fine as long as the price is right. They're brighter sounding that simul-class amps (I actually prefer the 100W to simul and usually have my 100W switched down to 60W as it's already loud enough and get slightly more plate voltage that way) but I would be more concerned about lack of EQ as t...

Re: Mark III Simulclass vs Super 60

I think the Super 60s are the sleepers of the bunch. I had an upgraded IIC+ SRG 60w with a pair of 5881's in the sockets that killed. The 100's and Simul's have more low end, but the 60w has this medium power, midrange thing that just works. So I picked up the super 60 today. I must say it really i...

Re: Mark III Simulclass vs Super 60

Thank you for the great reply. It is indeed a 60 watt with no reverb and no graphic. The only reason I'm considering this amp is I've noticed a sharp rise in prices on the Mark III lately. Seems like just last year I could get them under 1000 current pricing seems to be inline with Mark V and above ...

I took another look at the amp and it is indeed a blue stripe. Thanks I wasn't aware that green stripes only came simulclass.

Re: Greenbacks?

No experience with the TC but I do own a 4x12 Soldano cab loaded with Invaders and I love them. They are a little less woody in the mid range that than my Marshall cab loaded with greenbacks also they seem to have slightly better (more thump) in the low end department. I also run that cab with my Tr...

Mark III Simulclass vs Super 60

I have the opportunity to pick up a blue stripe 60 watt Mark III head for a great price. I have plenty of experience with the simulclass versions of this amp but none with the 60 watt version. I'm looking for some opinions from people that have owned both. Tonal differences pros and cons that sort o...

Re: DR Rev. G Compu-Bias Numbers does this look pretty norma

So I checked my amp its sitting at an ice cold 18ma with red Mesa tubes with settings on silicone rectification and bold. Your thread is inspiring me to do the adjustable bias mod on my amp. I've done it on countless 5150s its pretty simple. I think I'll do it to this amp and I'll report with my ton...

Re: Subway Blues - Any Cathode Follower Tubes?

Hello, I cannot help you with which position is the cathode follower on this amp. I can advise about suitable tubes. Chinese made 12AX7s work well in this position they seem to handle higher voltage better than most Russian tubes. I have also heard the Sovtek LPS (long plate) is good as a cathode fo...

Re: DR Rev. G Compu-Bias Numbers does this look pretty norma

If your IK number is the milliamp bias reading and vp plate voltage the standard 70% bias calculation yields about 42 milliamps per tube for the silicone bold settings. I'll address that mode as that is the amp basically in it's most powerful state. So going off the ik number you posted it would be ...
