Yup! The guy said as soon as he bought it, he put them in, so I'll be getting the original 6L6s with almost no play time on them as well. I don't think he had the amp set up correctly for them though.

I'm thinking about replacing the grill with a tan or wicker grill.

Is there a one-stop-shop for settings around here?

Thanks! My Mark IV should be here in about a week. It's a '95 but virtually unplayed. Can't wait to hear the EV!.

I assume you would have to play pretty damn loud to break in this speaker. Does it sound much different than when new?

Hey guys, I was wondering if any of you could help me out. I just got a Mark IVA and I had a question about the FX Loop. I'm running a noise supressor in it and I only want the loop activated on the LD channel. Is there anyway to make it so it'd work like that? Which loop would I use, the normal or switchable? Thanks for any help!

It's here, it's here!!! Mark IV in the house!

With all of the shipping damage horror stories I've been reading, we both decided it was best to go 2nd day air. The amp got here safe and sound - also due to a great packing job.

I just got it delivered to my work, so I didn't get a chance to plug it in yet, but I will tonight. It's got the 6V6s in there right now and the 6L6s are on the way. It's not as heavy as I thought it was going to be, but it isn't light either. Very solid. I usually bear hug it anyway instead of using the handle, so that helps. I turned all the controls to make sure they worked and pushed/pulled as well. It's so cool how the footswitch mounts to the back! I even got the original receipt from '96. It shows the color as burgundy and it's a bit darker in person, which I like.

Can't wait to fire her up tonight! Weeeee-doggy!!!

normal...and switch the lower of two fx loop switchs down so it's on lead...now when you switch rhy1/rhy2 the fx will be off and when you hit lead it will turn on automatically..

Got a chance to turn some knobs and check this little monster out. It really is a versatile amp. It's hard to find an amp that can do classic rock and all out metal and still sound great. I'm not sure if I like the EV yet, but it could be because it's in the combo. I hooked it up to my 2x12 cab, and it was tight and huge sounding. I was about to sell the cab, but now I'm definitely keeping it. I can't wait 'til my 6L6s get here!

I think I spoke too soon about the weight. It's a tank! I'm thinking of trying a Celestion Century. Anyone ever try 'em? What other speakers do they compare to?
