Gig all the time with my Mk III.

And with the old EV 12 in it, even though I am in London, you can hear me in Brighton.

I did not used it much these times, but things are changing as my band enters into an Afro-Cuban set for this year :

What Ettore Bugatti said about cars "le poids, c'est l'ennemi" (the weight is the enemy) can be applied to my MKIIA, and it's only for practical / logistical reasons that I used a Fender Mustang III these times (what a pity :roll: , I agree...).

A+!


Hi,

What kind of footswitch is that? I see "boost" sign on it. Ho do you get your signal boosted with footswitch?

I rehearse with my IIC and previously my 90 Mark I ri twice a week and play shows with em.

I used to gig 60's fender amps so the Boogies seem new :)

Sorry to answer so lately...

The Boogie MKI, MKIIA and MKIIB amps offers a booster facility built inside the amp, accessible via a jack under chassis and (on the MKIIA and B at least) a "pull boost" switch on the Master1 pot. With some modification, this boost function can be footswitchable (open contact = boost ON) : that's what I have done here in my DIY FSW.

A+!
