Hi guys!

Just watched some videos on youtube and found something interesting.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GAnzAzzZXb0

Take a look at 0:43 second. What do you think ?

Wow! At first, I thought the amp was a Mark V, but you can see clearly that there is a small section of knobs in between the channel 2 and 3 knob sections, unlike the Mark V. Also, the power switches on the right are top/bottom, rather than side by side. Also, I think this amp does not have the 3 small knobs to the right of the GEQ, like the Mark V has. Very interesting, and good catch! :P

Also, he is not using the classic "V" on the GEQ!

Yeah, not sure what it is. It's clearly NOT a Mark V.

Het goes through so much gear that a Sig model would be a terrible investment for a developer. By the time they released it, he'd be on to something new.

No disrespect to Het, he gave us all a tone grail. But at least JP has stuck it out over the years.

Well.... JP has used Mesas for the hole time, but not the IIC+, which is his sig now. Right before that he used the Triaxis before that the Mark V, both NOT in IIC+ mode... (Mark IV on the V and Mark III in the Triaxis).

Hetfield has used several brands over the years, but the Mesa IIC+ was a constant, though changing slightly, from IIC+/ IIC++, to the modded Triaxis in IIC+ mode, back to his crunchberries (not sure if that really is a ++ like everyone belives. Havn't seen "proof" of it. Hetfield himself calls it his "C+" in a Death Magnetic interview)...

Hetfield - as signature artist - makes sense. Most people with sig gear use other stuff as well. Kirk always used the Recto alongside his Randalls. Slash used JCM 800s an the vintage modern beside his sig amps (before switching to 800s...). Tremonti is getting a sig amp from PRS and is using a Bogner Überschall and an Mesa Recto for years, and I can't see him getting rid of the Mesa... so basicly what I'm trying to say is, a signature IIC+(+) for Het would sell and I would be interessted like many many others ;)

yeah, definately not any standard amp mesa offers.

any speculation as to what the "extra" knobs are for (maybe that volume 1)? anyone find any other videos with that amp in it?

I'm really not looking forward to dropping another $2500 on a new Hetfield amp :cry:

dmcguitar had a comment in another thread that made me think; maybe it's not a Hetfield amp but the next Mark amp, the Mark VI. Or anything really, I'm sure that's not Hetfield's first prototype he's got the chance to try out. Does Hetfield even need two GEQs anyway? His reissue would be more like the original, without the clean channel, just a single lead channel and a GEQ with simul class. His wouldn't need anything groundbreaking like JP has on his. James isnt on stage flipping through settings on his midi, he just needs a really good crunch tone and he's good for the night. Petrucci's amp came from real solutions to the c+ to make it better at performing on stage for him. What would Hetfield have to offer in that department? Any new features his amp might have could seem pretentious. He doesn't need all those features because he doesn't use all those features. But if it sounds good I'll still buy it :mrgreen:
