Tony,

That is actually not a bad sounding amp. You can push it with a clean boost and it will rip.

If you don't like it, I will give you $ 15,000 Euros for the spare parts.

On its way to Petaluma......

The clean channel is very nice though. But the lead is no good compared to a "+"
and the FX loop is useless when you play in lead channel. Distorted FX, nice for some weird rarely played stuff, but not always.
So I decided very quickly to get it upgraded otherwise I would never be at peace. :lol:

I totally understand. I just realized after chasing down a IIC SRG it did not sound as horrible as most people made it out to be ( Including me). It has/had it's own mojo.

Just think that it may be the last surviving IIC on the planet.......

Congrats !!!!

Family picture.
My amp switcher and recto preamp wasn't available in the picture :D

From Left: Mark III simul black dot, Thiele cab (EV)
From top middle; Mark IIC+ 60W, Mark IIC+ Simul, Mark IIC+ simul imbuya.
Right, Mark IV (a) Recto standard 4x12.
All my amps are exports, even the MKIII has the IIC+ left over transformers.

The C+'s, All of them have different faceplates. Top one has EQ Auto, EQ in. Middle has EQ out, The combo has the IIC gain boost faceplate and is upgraded. Also has the bright reduction mod, while my other simul doesn't

Ok, so that's why export IIc+'s are so hard to come by...one of our board members is hoarding them up. :lol:

Well, I've bought all of them in Norway so I guess you wouldn't have found them anyway.
But damn the hardwood combo is heavy......

Man, if I'd only had the insigt to order a IIc+ when I ordered my III, my amp wall might look similar to yours. :D Great family portrait and great find.

Nice catch Tony! I was about to pull the trigger on that amp :) I have already sent 2 amplifiers to Mike, so I have to draw the line somewhere, ha!
I'm really looking for a 60/100w iic+... some day :)
