Just wanted to say hello. I've been lurking for months, but I figured it was time to come out of the shadows.
I have some good news, and some bad news.
The good news is last week picked up a Mark V 35 head and a 1x12" widebody cab.
After trying several amps: Egnater Rebel 30 MKII and a Mark V 25. Settled on the Mark 35.
The bad news is I'm already a blasphemer, and have been tube rolling my preamp tubes.
I'm okay with being a black sheep. (Just don't tell Mesa)
So thanks for letting me read everyone's posts without participating.
Seriously helped me out making decisions on what amp to buy, etc.


Anyone in to tube rolling the Mark?

I have been playing with V1 V2 V3 so far.

V1-1961 Amperex
V2-1961 Amperex
V3- Vintage Brimar, not sure of the year

Comparing the stock tone with the post swap, it feels warmer and a bit smoother, but the harmonics are insane. I like it.
Anyone have opinions on this or combos of tubes they have tried?
