Re: Mark V:35 Review and thoughts

- Volume/Master: I don’t even think I have the master past 9:00. The manual says shoot for 9-12. This thing is loud, how is anyone turning it up that far and not getting blown away? In the past, I’ve always kept the guitar volume knobs and volume pedals wide open for simplicity, to turn the amp up ...

Re: TA-30 and pedals

With great success: Xotic BB Xotic AC Gristle King Reezafratzitz Java Boost Sex Drive Liquid Sunshine OCD All work great. As previous poster said; depends on flavor you're going for. Loves the Luxury Drive Boost side of the Gristle King. I run a Spark Boost in the loop for more volume - works fine. ...

Re: Easiest Way to Install Speaker in 5:25 plus Combo Amp

The four screws in the front are grill-only. Don't bother.

I was able to do a swap only removing the reverb tank. Pull the tubes, leave the chassis.

Re: Best Overdrive pedal for Express

Am also still experimenting, what's worked for me... On the channel 1 clean setting, I get the best results set on 50W. Seems to take out any preamp drive, hair, etc. and lets the pedal do its job. Am finding that a Fulldrive stacked into an OCD sounds fantastic. (On their own, just good.) Have also...

Re: 5:25 or 5:50 dilemma

Also, so far the Burn channel is my least favorite as it sounds too metal. Do I have to go to "burn" for good saturated lead tone? If you haven't - try Burn channel on 5 watt setting. Very saturated. Don't be afraid to turn the treble waaaaaay down. Somebody put it; "EQ with your ears, not your eye...

Re: mastervolume mod on 5:25 (old version)

Brake Lite works great on mine. Or just put an EQ in the loop and run the volume below unity.

Re: 5:25 or 5:50 dilemma

I have both amps and play in similar situations. FWIW, my opinion only; hands down 5:50. The 50 watt setting does provide some additional head room, but it's a different power section configuration and affects tone as well.

Re: Newbie problem - 5:25 stopped working.

Plug your guitar straight into the effects return. If it works, you now know it's something on the preamp side. If it doesn't work, change out the power tubes. If it still doesn't work. Amp tech.
