Mark V briefly loses power, then comes right back on?

The last few weeks, I've noticed when playing my amp that it will "cut out" for about a second then come back on. It's happened maybe 4 times?.... I'm not playing very loud when this happens and it's usually within the first 10 minutes after turning on the amp. At first, I thought it was my guitar c...

Re: Soon to be a Mark V Owner! Need some guidance.

I've been guilty of only changing 2 of the power tubes before (in a 4 power tube Mesa). I currently play at 45w and that only uses two of the tubes..... So, theoretically I could play those until they get weak and replace just those two (or swap with the others)? I've had 6L6 amps and the power tube...

Re: What effects do you use and what it does for you.

I have a huge pedal board that mostly consist of Tubescreamer style of OD's set at different drive levels. Used on channel 1, this basically works as a clean channel and for my country gigs, this is where I spend about 90% of my time. This channel takes pedals like a beast. For rock gigs, I just gra...

Re: Recording of mark v through speaker other than V30?

FWIW.... I played mostly single coil guitars and found the C90 a little spikey for my needs so I got a Eminence Governor and LOVE it! Cleans are full, have nice sparkle without the spike in the upper mids/highs. On distortion, I could turn up the treble a little.... Still has plenty of lows and smoo...

This!

I was a wah whore until I got this 12 years ago... My most used and longest lasting pedal!

Not a selling point, but worth mentioning....I've probably only changed the battery 3 or 4 times in 12 years.

Re: 1st Mesa amp / Mark V / And now some questions...

I've found that Extreme can, in fact, seem a good bit cleaner than the MkIV or MkIIC+ settings, but the gain is greater. This is so odd how different people perceive the Extreme mode? I feel it's lacking in gain when compared to the Mark IV mode. I play a single coil Telecaster and have the gain ma...

Re: FX Loop w/Line 6 M5 or M9 (delay) - Help?

Which delays are you using? There are several models that actually are modelled to affect your tone as the real pedal would, then there are variations with "dry thru" in the name which should be pretty transparent. I used to have the m13 and I don't recall having to mess with any levels in the peda...

FX Loop w/Line 6 M5 or M9 (delay) - Help?

I'm not a NoOb to tube amps, or Boogies...... But I've really NEVER used a FX loop in my life! I've always been an "in front of the amp" type of guy and it's worked well for me, up until now. I do know there's Line and instrument level, but that's about as far as my knowledge goes. (Now, if ask me a...

Re: A red Mark V?

That looks like the red vinyl "Bronco" that Mesa custom makes..... But it could be an after market cab?? Are the corner covers leather or plastic?? Mesa uses leather, so if they're plastic then it's probably an after market cab, if it's leather then it's probably actually a mesa head-cab. It's defin...

Re: Best way to set the Mark V for single coil/strats?

I only play single coil Tele's with my Mark V....... Let me look at it this evening or tomorrow and get back with you on how I have it set. I like bright amps, so my settings may be pretty bright in comparison to what you like?? Plus, Strat bridge pickups tend to have more bite than Tele's do... But...

Re: OD and Distortion pedals with MK V

I always use a Tubescreamer style of pedal, or two, with mine. This gives you more gain stages to choose from and more "classic" tones if you need them. One I have the gain about 1/3 the way up and the volume at unity (tone to taste). I'll use this one on my drive channels to add a little extra driv...
