^ I enjoy the contrast between the clean JP head and the worn cab.
Thanks, so do I!
Joining this club this week as I found a Mark IV relatively local on Reverb for a fantastic price. Then it's time to decide if the triple recto stays or goes....
Any links to that IIC + mod? Would be interested
One reason I sold my Mark III years ago is because I missed that big modern sound the Triple had. The Triple can definitely do tones the Mark series cannot.
Oh the tones from the triple are nice it's more the practicality of it with the volume levels
My Axe FX does a nice recto though so I wouldn't miss it toooo much. I may just swap it for a dual and see if that solves my volume problems though...
About that VHT, are the EQ controls similar to that of the Mark series? Or are they both post-EQ controls?
It's my understanding that both the 3-band/normal eq knobs and the 6-band graphic eq are both post gain, but before the FX loop. The graphic on the VHT just adds a bit of extra shaping in specific frequencies whereas the 5-band on the Mark series is where the majority of the noticeable EQ cuts and boosts comes from since the normal bass/mid/treble controls are pre gain
It's here and it sounds MASSIVE
Ignore the mess on top of my amps, I'm working on it
Hell yeah dude! Enjoy it. I just tracked 5 new songs with my IV and I can’t wait to hear a mix with it. It’s the perfect combination of tight and present. Post up some settings if you find some you’re loving. Mine change a little every week haha
I don’t see anything.
damn this makes me want another Mesa, there is just something about them cant be beat. Torn between JP2C or TC50 though.
If you already have a mark- TC50
If not - JP2C
Or the better option.
I had a MKV for a while, got on with it really well, but then I sold it. Now I'm GASing real hard for a MKIV, real hard.
she's a little beat up but now she's mine.
Is it a MKIV A or B? If it has 2 fx loops on the back = A, if only one = B.
Also get some Tung Sol 6L6GCs and 12AX7s.
It's a B. The previous owner just had it retubed so I should be good for a while.
I was lurking around the boogie board on the weekend and found this thread about the Mark V
+1 for putting a Tung Sol in V1.
What would be the tonal benefit of that swap?
