Is a 60-watt version likely to have one of the output transformers in it that is hard on tubes? I know that some of the Mark IIC+ amps require really heavy duty tubes because the plate voltage is really high on them. I'm not sure if that is just for the 100 watt C+ amps though.

It's not the output transformer, but the power transformer that you need to be concerned with. The 60 watt versions are supposed to send 448V to the plates of the power tubes. You will be fine.


Ok gotcha. Thanks!

I was thinking about changing speakers to put my Mark IIB on a diet, so I weighed it.

52 lb. Not a II C+, but a good point of reference for anyone shopping.

No EQ, Reverb or Simul-Class, just a plain 60W combo. The MS-12 Black Shadow weighs 15.8 lb, so I was looking at neo replacements to get close to 40 lb total, which would be really, really nice considering what it is.


I'm playing two shows today with my MK IIB with a new Celestion Neo Creamback. The new speaker is 4.2 lb, so the combo is down to about 41 lb. The sensitivity is only 97 dB I believe, so I'm thinking I'll be able to turn up more than usual, which is also a good thing.
