Re: FX LOOP BYPASS SOUNDS GREAT!

I still use v4 and v6 together, but most people pick one or the other.

Re: FX LOOP BYPASS SOUNDS GREAT!

Yeah, I think the thread covers the details nicely. Sometimes I think it’s just due to how aggressive the volume taper is with the loop bypassed - I end up playing at a higher volume than I do with the output volume working and think “oh that’s so much better”. But I do think there’s really somethin...

Re: Export Transformer Question

Ooo I didn’t realize that that the export transformer was a model modifier.

So mine is a blue stripe DRGX!

That’s awesome :)

Re: The Mark V is a Masterpiece

Sorry, I missed this question!

If you are running in IIC+ mode, it will sound WAY better with a speaker cabinet on the ground. IIC+ has PULL DEEP disabled, and the ground effect gives it the oomph it will sound like it's missing.

If you're using IV or Extreme, keeping it on casters is fine.

Export Transformer Question

The export transformer on my '88 blue stripe Mark III is 571100/E1A606740. I know that E1A6060 indicates that it's a Schumacher transformer, but this isn't equivalent to an X101, right? I've never really known, so I thought I'd ask.

Re: Downgrading from a Mark V to a Rectoverb 25 Head...

If you're just looking for lower power at home, running your V in 10 watt mode across the board is going to be lower power than the Recto 25.

I've owned both and the V is a lot more valuable to me.

Re: Help with TC-50 Triple Crown and MIDI

Hey buddy, It's easier to just put together a bunch of settings you like and then assign them to a specific Program Change number. The basic process is: 1. Use your controller (your Rocktron here) to send a Program Change number to your amp on the channel you have your amp set to. 2. Get the amp set...

Re: Dumb question, but why does it feel like Recto's "Need" a boost or OD to sound best?

I always figured that it was a way to allow the amp to cover a few more genres. Without a boost, in spongy mode, it's great for hard rock like Queen. WITH a boost and full power it's ready to go for brutal, tight tracking metal.

I like using it both ways a lot.

Can confirm. My purple stripe Mark III S is a little fire breather.

Re: MK III purple stripe combo

I wanted to try and pull this amp into the present day, so I ordered an updated head shell and new Mark V-style knobs for it. The IIIs have a lot more real estate for the controls, so I went with the large ones. Here’s how it turned out. May not be everyone’s cup of tea, but I love it: https://cdn-s...

Re: MK III purple stripe combo

If you want c+ alternative and can't find a Mark III with the 105 transformer the 60 watt III's are a great option. That is really interesting to hear. I love my 60 watt Mark III, but has there been something in particular recognized about the 60 watt models? When I compare my purple stripe S vs my...

I did (III+) and it's totally worth it. Especially if you like to play in the "in between." I think it's quite close to a IIC, transformer notwithstanding. 60W is a different transformer anyway.

That's good to hear. What stripe is yours?

Re: Lack of Low-end on channel 3?

Actually kinda yes. The recto series is one of those plug in and play amps. You get a recto tone no matter how you set it. The Mark series are definitely not in that plug in and drive category. If that makes recto users mad so be it. I am actually not dissing a good amp(not my thing), but merely po...
