Re: Mark III Green stripe - recorded 8 tracks with one setti

I didn't really know anything about the MkIII when I stumbled upon a used one at Guitar Center about 18 years ago. I already knew I loved the MkIV, but could never find one that wasn't outrageously expensive. So I got the MkIII first thanks to the dumb salesboys not knowing much of anything about it...

Re: The Mark IV thread....!!

Got the chance to hear my 1991 Mark IVa through a 4x12 finally. Holy balls, Batman! The cab is a Mills Afterburner with v30's and k-100's in an x pattern. I sold my last 4x12 10 years ago along with the Mark III blue stripe head. Figured with the band splitting there wasn't gonna be a need for the ...

That is a truly rare guitar; very limited production. I remember seeing it in the ~'91 Ibanez catalog, which I still have. 8)

Re: Add your Mark III settings

My MkIII is a 15/75 watt Simul-Class with R1+R2+ Reverb mods by Mike B. These are my standard settings. I adjust the bass, gain and possibly the graphic EQ slightly only when switching between Superstrats or Strats or my Tele or Les Paul. I will sometimes Pull Shift on the bass knob only for thin-so...

I'd go Thiele with EVM12L.

Re: Rebuild Cost for MK III at Mesa Boogie headquaters

I was playing my III+ yesterday and it sounded so incredibly rich. I was fiddling a bit with the settings, and I don't think I realized this before, but I have the presence set very high on it, something like 8 or 9 (it's in the back so I can't see it). This is a really big difference from when it ...

Re: Rebuild Cost for MK III at Mesa Boogie headquaters

My Mark III refresh last year cost somewhere in the mid 300 range including a new quad of power tubes and one new pre tube, shipped. 100% worth it. I sent mine to Mike for a refresh + mods about 15 years ago and that was the price range. Being an old amp, I wanted a true expert to give it a full ev...

Re: Stryper tone

Oh the Mark III isn't going anywhere, was just looking to get input on which of the newer amps might cover more ground tonally, Mark IV, Mark V, or JP2C...the MIDI on the JP2C would be a thing of beauty for a complex rig. I think the JP2C or of course the elusive IIC+ would be more in the III ballp...

Re: Mk iii stripes

I have a no stripe which became a "+" after Mike B did the R1 (clean up/lower gain), R2 (clean up bass, add volume knob to back panel) and Reverb (deepen reverb). It has the searing, lustworthy IIC+ lead sound, which is what counts! Mine was a bit tired when I bought it, so I sent it to Mike to fres...

Re: Mark V owner review of JP-2C (multi page post)

Cool. I have a Roland TD-25KV and love it. Shades of guitar playing, I initially went though a period of trying many different drumsticks to figure out what I like, and have a few favorites now. Started out with signature sticks of players I admire, since they are already specialized. I definitely l...

You are a very lucky man!

It sounds gnarly when tapping on the lower strings especially. 8)

Re: Mark V owner review of JP-2C (multi page post)

I mix it up. Classic Rock to heavy metal. I may spend more time on a Pink Floyd type sound but I prefer a more heavy approach, my roots came from the Scorpions, Judas Priest, and Deep Purple when I was younger. Now it is Led Zep and or ACDC as that tends to be the focus when I get involved with oth...

Wow, this is a very wordy but interesting thread! :shock: I haven't read every post, but enough to know there are some serious tone chasers here...
