Adult money, single life, and keeping up with info on new gear is a recipe for...hmm...I was gonna say disaster but really it's been a recipe for fun lol. Still, I'm trying to change my habit patterns. :)

Anyway, congrats on the 5:25! I loved that little amp. I might've kept it if the Fat and Crunch were footswitchable. The Crunch is phenomenal. Right up there with the EVH 50w 6L6 blue on my list of favorite amp channels ever.

Happy NAD!

You can never go wrong with a Mark amp. The Mark IV mode on the red channel is probably the best lead sound an amp is capable of producing. Nothing but love for this circuit.

If only I had a version of a Mark IV or Mark V that could footswitch to a crunch channel...

Ha. I always hear positive things about the triaxis. Never tried one. I could probably get that sound with the FM9 now that I think about it. I haven't even looked up Mark tones on there. 🤔

It gets loud fast. If you look at where the Ch 2 Master knob is compared to the Mid (which is at 0), it was already in "well, I hope the neighbors like Enter Sandman" territory :lol:

I have a JHS Little Black Amp Box on the way to try out with it.

We put a 12au7 in the phase inverter on my cousins and it worked out great.
Gave the Master Volume a nicer more progressive sweep.

I'd still send that ripoff piece of shit back and get something worth your money like an EQ instead (which will also work as a volume control).

Congrats, BTW!

Well everyone got their wish, it had to go back, anyway, because it just flat-out didn't work.

As for your suggestion, would it just be as simple as using the volume slider on the MXR 10-band, for example?

Do you have a modeler? I use my helix to do this exact thing. I set a volume block in the FX loop of the Mark 5:25 or my 5153 LBX and set it to 10 percent, then dial in the volume to the room, way easier to find the sweet spot and can add some FX in.
