Re: Yes or No - Simul-class?

OT will be stamped simul-class. Long heads did not have the class A/ Simulclass switch on back. The full power 1/2 power switch takes its place and function. I have seen the class A/ simul-class label on front of long heads (put over the full/1/2 switch..) The Full and half switch is your class A/ ...

Re: Yes or No - Simul-class?

I voted "no", it is not Simulclass. It looks like a 100/60 model. There is no switch on the back for "Class A" vs "SimulClass". My .02. IIC and IIC+ Long Heads didn't have the "Class A - SimulClass" switch. They had a "Full power - 1/2 power" switch. So the only way to tell would be as JB says abov...

Re: Do I own the last SOB made?

Do they look original? I ordered an SOB when they first came out - and I don't recall them having that in the back.

Could someone have added a "slave out" to it perhaps?

Re: How do you store the footswitch on the back of the Mark

Here is a picture of the back of my Mark IV. On the right hand side (just to the right of the tube), and on the left, you can see the holes into which the clasps of the foots-witch fit. http://s829.photobucket.com/albums/zz216/bgh10/Back_zpsookcl77t.jpg These are not pictures of my amp (I found them...

Re: Mark IV ch.2 mod to match ch.3? Mark IV+

Same here. I get excellent Marshally tones for channel 2. No reason to change it.

Re: Mesa Mark IV and pedals/stompboxes

I don't typically use fuzz pedals into my Mark IV, but I can verify the clean channel has good headroom.

Re: Playing a Mark III without using the EQ

I don't have a Mark III (I have a Mark IV). But, like you, I don't always use the EQ section. And, like you do with the Mark III, I set the bass low (around 2 or 3), mids pretty high (8 or 9), and treble rather low (5 or 6). I make up for the treble with the presence control. Depending on circumsta...

Re: Mark IV wood type

The shade says "Bubinga" to me. But, the grain says "Tiger Maple".

Could it be Tiger Maple that has been given a very deep stain?

Re: New signature Hetfield Mesa Mark amp ?

Is the Express Mark Series? The Nomad 100 had an EQ too. Sorry if it's a silly question, I genuinely don't know Both of them have some Mark blood in them, but they are not direct descendants. The Express clean is in the Lone Star family. The Nomad is from the "F" series bloodline. If I had to make ...

Re: New signature Hetfield Mesa Mark amp ?

I'm really not looking forward to dropping another $2500 on a new Hetfield amp :cry: dmcguitar had a comment in another thread that made me think; maybe it's not a Hetfield amp but the next Mark amp, the Mark VI. Or anything really, I'm sure that's not Hetfield's first prototype he's got the chance...

Re: New EL-34 Mesa amp?

I've never heard of it, and it's not listed on their web-site.

The description does have that Mesa "vibe" to it, though.
