i wouldnt call the mark 5 modeling. its actual circuits as was mentioned.. plus it has new tones.... since you can drop it to 45 or 10 watts in class A.. or run the C+ in pentode mode which was impossible on the actual C+... but obviously if you want a C+ tone.. and you have them and have been using them for 20 years you probably use that.

Wrong. JP posted on his own forum that he had used the Mark I mode on the V for some solos. I bet he probably used it for some rhythms too.

+1 man. I just ordered my box set of Black Clouds and Silver Linings yesterday. I'll have it on the 24th, but on the 23rd I'm going out and getting a regular copy of the album anyway to play in the car. Haha.

Yeah, it seems to me they've gotten back a little more to the feeling side of things than the lets play really fast notes that nobody else can thing. Loving it so far, my c+ comes in the mail today, can't wait to see if I can cop some of those huge rhythm tones!

Jordan has taken an approach to his keys much more in the style of Kevin Moore on this album. They keyboard is being used much more for atmoshpherics and "fullness" added to harmonic progressions than as a lead instrument. This, and a few more Rush influenced tracks make this more of the successor to 6DoIT musically

Dude, the c+ is so THAT tone. The one you hear on most of the older DT stuff that you constantly try to get everything else to sound like. SO worth saving up for. Now to learn the new album!

They are sweet in concert! It's not so much a crazy show but everybody just sitting back and going "holy crap these guys are sick!" Seems like a big gathering of musicians.

I wish it were that simple! I think I missed my chance when I got out of college, got a steady job, then got married. LOL. Just kidding, but I would love to have a IIC+, but my wife would flip!!

Man, I'm really loving the Count of Tuscany. I'm thinkin he used the c+ on the intro lead part and rhythms and the IV on the outro solo. It was sweet man, I pulled the c+ out of the box the day I got it, plugged it in, pulled some knobs and out came that intro tone.

I'm loving the more positive and hopeful feeling this album has. Dark and heavy has its place, but this is a very welcome change. It almost sounds like they just discovered Rush on a few of these tunes.

Wrong:


"Hey there fellow shredders. I just wanted to take a moment and say hi. As you may already know at this point, the Dream Theater cd is all finished up and comes out on June 23rd. I'm really excited about the way that it turned out and can't wait for all of you to hear it. Tonewise, it is a Mark series lovers extravaganza. I used a couple of my favorite Mark IIC+s, Mark IVs and even the new Mark V including a couple of solos using the amp's new Mark I mode which is incredibly sweet and dripping with gain."

Love it!
