Mark IV is amazing!

Post by el34sg » Mon Nov 05, 2018 7:59 pm

I'm digging the Mark IV I picked up. Been a Mark III guy for a while and have been
extremely happy with the Mark IV (B). A different beast than a Mk III..
Really digging the Clean & Lead channel. R2 is pretty low end heavy even with the bass on zero.
My years of dialing in a MK III really pays off on the IV.
Organic sounding on every channel. Lead channel is tight and focused..
Maybe I'll try a Mark V in 20 years!

The IV is my favorite Mark. I like them all.
The fact that Stephen appears from nowhere, is sentenced to death in an emotional public trial without anyone interfering at all and is then altogether forgotten as if nothing happened, is already suspicious.

Think of R2 as an extension to R1. Some nice tones in there. I use it with my SG quite a bit.

Love my Mark IV.

Yeah, I agree and spend most of the time on ch2 when gigging, crank the drive and ch master. I always get compliments when I use my IV.

The bass heavy sounds the IV can do with the lead channel are my favorite Mark sounds. The slower attack and just a huge sound.
