Re: 25 combo conversion?

With Bruce's permission, here are his build pics, and comments... From Bruce: Here’s the pics I took along the way of the build. I actually built two of these at the same time as another guitar player in my band also had a Mark V:25. As I said, I used ½” Baltic Birch. That’s not the same as cabinet ...

25 combo conversion?

I've just got a MV25 head, and it's fitting in well. Portability is a big plus, so I need to buy, or preferably make a small speaker cab or 2. I've a pile of 12" speakers already so was thinking of 1x12s, probably an open back, and closed back. I then saw the MB 1x10 cabs, and love the small size bu...

DC-5B drive channel too dark?

I'm really liking my newly acquired DC-5B combo, but I'm finding the drive channel very dark. I have tried a 5751 in V2, and a 12AT7 in the PI, but it's still dark. Seems a lot better through a Celestion Gold, but I'm wondering of there are any other tricks to lightening up the drive?

1x12 wide body cabs?

I'm thinking of adding a 1x12 to my DC-5B combo. Looking around, there appear to be closed back, and open back cabs. But I've seen the open backed ones with different back panels. I'm curious how they sound, and which you'd recommend...

Re: The Official DC Club

Hi all, New member, and I just picked up a DC-5B yesterday. I always wanted a Studio 22+, and when the DC5 came up for a good price, I couldn't resist. So far loving the clean channel, but still working on the drive channel, I think lower gain preamp tubes will get me to where I want to be. The amp ...
