Haven't tried this with a Boogie but it works well with Fenders. To get more drive slam the rhythm channel with a Tubescreamer or other overdrive pedal. On a TS you would turn the tone to about 8 o'clock and the drive to about 9 o'clock then turn the level up to get the tone you want. This will push...

Pricing for MB is unique as they only have 1 price that is not negotiable or the retailer looses the ability to sell MB. Pricing for the Special is: Head: $1499 1x12: $1599 2x12: $1699 The 4x10 was new at NAMM and they don't have pricing yet. Also I have not seen pricing on the Classic Cabs which ma...

I played the LSS at NAMM last week set on 5 watts. It is a very sweet sounding amp. It won't do massive distortion but the clean/edge of break up sounded really nice as did the drive channel. They also had a 4x10 combo that sounded better (IMO) than the 1x12 or 2x12. I've been sold. Plan on getting ...

Pete, I love my Axis SS and the only difference is the trem and a 3-way versus the SS's 5 way which gives you more pickup options. Played a couple of Axis's at NAMM and they feel just like the SS. If you want a locking trem go Axis. You should also check out the new HP Special (Wolfgang replacement)...

G-

This isn't just the Mark IV but all tube amps. They need to speaker load or you will blow the transformer.

054, One thing you can try is running the Soldano into the FX return which should be right in front of the power amp section. You would need a A/B box to then switch between the Soldano/Egnator or Mesa preamp section. Other than than if the Soldano works going straight into the amp I don't see why t...

Haven't spammed to many sites with the link. But we're doing good for less than 24 hours.

Since it seems to be taking off I'll start to work on getting a better look.

I picked 1990 because in 91 the midi stuff came out and in 92 the Rectos were introduces. Couldn't label anything midi as vintage.

I am thinking of breaking out by product groups and any suggestions on how that should look is appreciated.

Thanks for the quick reply.

I'm gonna head down to GC this week and check them out. Got to play around with the 4x10 combo at NAMM and loved it. Probably gonna start with a small head and get the 4x10 cab later.

Valveheavy-

Should I break it out by every product:
Mark Series, Nomad, Rectos, Dual Calibers, etc

or are there certain products that would fit well together?
