    It’s the 1x12 Thiele cab. I got it used from GC. Sounds great. If it’s stock then the speaker is a C90

    I've always considered the Mark-IV the best lead guitar sound I've ever played, so after 8 years with a Roadster, I finally took the plunge. I should have done this YEARS ago:

    Video, though I've refined my settings a hair since this:


    Amazing sounding amp.

    Not as good as the little one, IMO. I traded up from the 25 to the fullsize and was pretty disappointed. That all changed when I got my IV, though.

    Its a bitter sweet thing for me, though. I love my IV, best sounding amp I have ever owned (including the KSR that I currently have in my collection). But mine has been riddled with reliability issues.

    +1. I have an older 3/4 backed 1x12 with a C90 in it. I prefer it to most v30 cabs for these amps.

    Just got my MkV about a week ago. It's a banged up used amp, and probably needs a strong re-tubing, but man oh man am I happy with it. This thing is a swiss army knife of sounds.

    Here's mine

    Got it used. Never seen a gray cover before. But he's probably getting a facelift in the form of a black flame maple faceplate as soon as I find a chunk of wood I like.

    Can't the Triaxis also get Recto tones or something? If so, I would've said, "No, because it's recto abilities are incorrigible." :rofl:

    There was one mode that was Recto, and it wasn't very good.

    Mark I/IIC+/III is what the Triaxis excels at.

    I miss my Mark IV. I remember missing my Mark IV as I was listing it for sale.
