Ignore the hype and trust your ears. Play more, buy less = better tone.

I gig it some but believe it or not , I bought most of that stuff on the cheap in the condition that its in. With exception of the MKIII on the left. My uncles pet rabbit mangled the tolex on it and many other things around the jam room. I broke the pot on it loading out one night. The Lone Star Cab and the IIA are in the condition that I bought them in!!!!

Hi all

I recently added an original 2c+ to the arsenal and I am beyond words on how this all sounding. All running simultaneously and some sections in stereo. It's that good its a wonder I ever leave this room.... which sometimes I don't and if I do it's usually against my will.

I've put some detail in this thread with info on how to set it up with multiple heads using the axe fx (or any other midi unit that has multiple outputs) for anyone interested.

Now I just need to get a better desk that will fit it all :)

Not sure how to crop this pic down a bit but here's the new setup. I've had the Stiletto and 4x12 since 2009.
New MV 90W purchased last month. I split out stereo from a TC Nova Delay. Just getting used to how to balance the 2
out. Clean settings are working out the best so far. The Mark 5 is a beast, been messing with it for the last 4 weeks. Awesome amp-

New G-system Mesa Mark V 25 rack set up..
G-system is in the loop of Mesa Mark V 25, so i have 3 cable method set up.
Mesa Mark V 25 head is rackmounted via aluminum cell from Forsburg company.
This cell lets you rack-mount the Mesa Mark V 25 head without modification or removing it from its wooden frame!
The whole thing is powered by Furman Pl-Plus E Series II conditioner.
Signal flow:
Guitar-->Isp guit in-->Isp guit out-->Nova Drive in-->Nova Drive out-->Mesa guit in-->Mesa effects loop send
-->Isp dec in-->Isp dec out-->G system insert return--> G-system L output-->Mesa effect loop return.
Also
G-system midi out-->Nova Drive midi in
G-system loop 1 button turns on/off distortion side of Nova Drive
G-system loop 2 button turns on/off overdrive side of Nova drive
and
G-system sw out 1-->Mesa ft sw
So, G-systems changes Mesa's channels via loop 3 button.
I also run a Boss FV-500H for volume purposes only..
The cabling is very short and the system stays completely silent even at extra high gain settings.
With this set up i bypass the front section of G-system so i can't take advantage of everything that sits there
such as the four analog loops and the filter/compressor section (compressor, wah, whammy etc.)
On the other hand, i don't have to worry about using TRS cables and special devices such as Morley Hum Eliminator,
Lehle Synday Driver etc..
If i want to go wireless i use Line 6 Relay G50.
For stereo set up i run a cable from G-system R output to another power amp/speaker..
I run the whole thing into either Mesa Boogie Thiele 112 or Recto 212 cabinets.
Sometimes i go into Two Notes Torpedo C.A.B. M (with mesa original impulse responses)
and then to mixing console for rehearsal or recording purposes.
