Re: Finally happy with my V

I swear on some days that I can actually hear the beginning of Also Spoke Zarathrusta playing when the amp is set like that an the 1st chord of the day is played..

Re: Sound loss across all three channels

Seconded. If its not the tubes, not the fuse, then its bite-the-big-one time: Tech servicing.

Re: Mesa MarkV / Saturation 'mod'

Yep and perhaps another tribute to the V, and the genius behind it: - 10 years this amp has been out, and its still shocking people with new depths of coolness and utterly ripping tone..

Re: Mesa MarkV / Saturation 'mod'

Hi no worries. People find this at different times! So don't feel awkward...! The equivalent mod you speak of is Mesa 12AT7s in V2 (For gain stage flavour, ability to dial more gain/preamp EQ etc without flub) and V6 (Phase inverter for the big 3d vintage smoothness across all modes/both channels) A...

Re: Mark V 90w Midboost

I don't know...would that be something that was 'Patent Applied For'..? Also from the way that that Ive heard it described it as tapered pot where above 12, thats where the effect of this patented device or feature kicks in. This tallies with experience. Its a definite effect of an even frequencied ...

Mark V 90w Midboost

Just wondering if such a mod could be devised:

To recreate the Mid/Boost feature from the V:25 and the V:35 on the V:90..?

Is anybody on that? Could Authorised Mesa Comment possibly..?


Thanks.

:D

Re: Mesa MarkV / Saturation 'mod'

Honestly couldnt say, for sure as when Ive done it ive always removed the chassis.
But IIRC it probably could be done by taking out the power tubes and recto tube in order to access it.
(Its the one behind the Rectifier tube.)

Re: Mark V 25 classic crunch?

With a Mesa Widebody ported 1x12 it'll then be 1:1, more or less then. IMHO That'd be the remainder of the difference.
I'd seriously consider getting one in if I were you. (Not the most expensive in the world, especially used - Runs great with a 2x12 too)

Re: Mark V 25 classic crunch?

Faded flying v with standard pickups (same bridge as your SG I think) > Straight into V:25 crunch 25 watt > 1x12 ported closed pack does it. Granted, mine's also got an AT7 in V2 and another in the Phase inverter tube V6, plus tungsols for the other gain positions, but replicated that sound real wel...
