As you all may already know; Mark V 25 it’s NOT a plug and play amp !!

After 2 years using this little amp, I am just starting to get nice tones (specifically talking about dirty channel options). If you want to get good tones out of it, you will have to invest lots of time tweaking this little boy (as I call it).

If you own this amp, please do yourself a favor and experiment with all channel options and try as many settings as possible, this amp has many possibilities. Do not give up, this amp might take you places you haven’t even imagined.

One good and very valuable TIP; Set the treble knob at 1 o’clock on CH2, this will do wonders for your over driven (dirty) tone !!

Check out this video for a kick ass setting on the channel 1 crunch mode.

I tried it out the other night and it blew me away. It sounds even better live than in this video. I’ve been playing on the extreme mode up till now, but this made me question that. Give it a shot.
IMO the crunch mode it’s the best channel option on this whole amp pallet of flavors, take my advice and squeeze this mode as much as you possible can. This channel its enjoyable

Not sure if anyone has seen this but I think it is pretty cool ... I didn't imagine using the Extreme channel this way:

Yeahp, I've tried this set up and it worked wonders for me at least the EQ settings did.

I recommend you try it out

Hi folks!
I've done a "Drive Mod" to my MarkV:25 and also tried a SPAX tube. Very nice improvement IMHO.

Yes man! Honestly this SPAX/AT7 combo is the best thing that I've done to my Mark V:25! And this forum IS the reason! Glad to be here! :)

Now I want to try SPAX in my TC-50!
