That's a sweet Mark. III there. How do you find the Greenbacks handle high volume? I really want a closed back greenback loaded quad for my purple stripe.

Thanks!

As for the greenbacks, they handle the Mark III in simulclass mode extremely well. You will be VERY loud, in fact, I've played some JMC Marshall cabs with a Dual Rectifier and I don't recall those being as loud as my Mark III with my greenbacks. Note that my cab is the old style "compact" Mesa cab with the top two speakers being open back and the bottom being closed backs. The volume is very loud and you can play virtually any venue you want. Only reason to get a second cab would not be for volume, but for effects, in my opinion, and I've played some pretty good sized venues, like the old Reseda Country Club in the LA/Valley area. You will be happy with the greenbacks. Last thing is: These are the 25 watt versions. Cheers!

That's a great-looking amp. See how your blue stripe is unquestionably blue? Mine is the "teal" blue ahaha. Some here are saying it's not teal, it's green stripe. :)

What's your opinion?

Solinator:
Go look at the pics posted by Koprofag on Page 2 of this thread and the responses.
Also see last last posts on Page 3 of this thread - same pics with further clarification.

Take your chasis out and compare it to the pics.
Since you have a Simul-Class amp you'll be able to tell (blue or green) by the tube socket wiring shown in the pics on that page of this thread.

I've always guessed a blue mark/ stripe made with a blue marker could fade to teal just as easily as green mark/ stripe could fade to teal.

Now go pull your chasis! :) ;-)


No problem! hehe

I will--just had a few days of rehearsals and Thxgivin and was too tired to pull it out. I'll take some pics and share with you all. Note that even though I am proficient at playing guitar, my weakness has always been electronics! So, I decided to try the folks that know their stuff on these forums. :)

Well, I'll post soon! :)

Based on the pictures showing pentode/triode wiring, serial number and reference pictures showing the green hues from other amps, I am convinced I have a green stripe.

But it's weird because the gentleman that sold me this amp sold it to me as a blue stripe. I think ALL stripes are unique and it doesn't matter what color the stripe is as long as the sound the owner is looking for is there. We all are different and will interpret the "perfect" sound differently. It's amazing that these amps can deliver all those "perfect" tones.

My opinion is that they all sound awesome and there is a place for each one of those iterations. I am actually watching some eBay sales right now to see if I can get a second Mark III. Money is a bit low because of Christmas, but in the near future I want to get a Mark IV for a rock band project I have in mind. :)
