Mark IVb Vs Mark V

Not really classic "Vs" as they weren't dialled to imitate or outdo each other.
But it does show the previous limits of the standard tube set being broken for each amp.

No ice pick on the V even with some very testing settings and improved character to my ear...more growl and bass, but smoother high up even when riled by prescence and lots of pre-treble..!

The IV seemed to have gained definition, control and a better picking feel, also with massive lows accessible before flub, like the V. And although theres less of high mids and treble grpahic settings here, it can do all the brash but beautiful high stuff too as the smoothitude was great for balancing the aggression.

Both double 12AT7'd and Tungsol'd up. Plenty of different settings used.


EDIT: New link added for new comparison with stuff better sequenced to show comparison between the amps too.
