Re: 6V6's with a Mark IV whats the deal?

haha sorry yes Dream Theater So I think I'll forgo the 6V6 experiment as I'm not looking for vintage tones. Well it arrived and it's very clean (thank god) the previous owner has EL-34L's in the Class A sockets. Interesting sound, I did not really like EL-34's in my old mark IV but I'm on the fence ...

6V6's with a Mark IV whats the deal?

I just pick up my 2nd mark IV (I foolishly sold my first one) I've generally preferred all 6L6's in the IV, but I've seen some posts in other forums of people really liking the IV with all 6V6's. What's does using that type of tube do and is it safe to do with the mark IV? I am primarily a pretty hi...

Re: Which Power amp would be better with an Axe Fx II

and now I'm back here again LOL! my buddy needed a poweramp (he's gigging I'm not) so I sold him my Fryette. So being that I am not gigging is the 2:90 even usable at home volumes?I've heard it's really,really loud. I know the 50/50 is very manageable, been thinking about trying one again. I've been...

Re: Anyone here switch from a mark IV to a Tremoverb?

well that's good to hear. I'm using a JSX right now and the JSX is really a great low volume amp. I use a clean boost and a 10 band EQ in the loop and can get it to sound great at almost any volume (recto 2X12 cabs f'n rock at low volume) the only problem is ...................it's a JSX, some days ...

Re: Anyone here switch from a mark IV to a Tremoverb?

does it behave at all at lower volumes or would I need a hotplate to use it in the house?
One of the things I really like about the Mark IV is that is behaves really well at lower volumes.
I wonder if a roadster would be a better "at home" amp? I really don't know

Anyone here switch from a mark IV to a Tremoverb?

I've owned a couple of Rectos in the past and a mark III red stripe and a mark IV "A". went the Axe Fx route and am now looking to add a real tube head back into the mix. The Tremoverb is the one Recto I have not had the change to 'try" yet. I miss my old mark IV , but find that I often crave a bit ...

Re: what would get me closer to a Mark IV lead channel?

the Axe is cool and with cab IR's on through FRFR monitors it does great Mesa "imitations" but when playing through the fryette something is just not right. I have a buddy who has a TriAxis and he says it kind of needs the 2:90 to really shine, so it may be the Fryette that is the problem here. the ...
