    You got me, I googled. I guess you meant a IV. but I thought the release of the Mark 6 would explain when the Mark V went on a big sale this summer -like 500-700 lower than original price.

    I think the possible answer is I knew they couldn't produce them fast enough in 2020 due to supply chain and labor pandemic issues and then once they finally started to catch up with production in later 2021 they had a lot of units available for a demand that had already bought something else in 2020 and early 2021

    Just a guess.

    • Lol! Yeah, typo. I have plenty of idiot moments.

      I've got the little Mark 5/25 10" combo, and couldn't ask for more when I hit my 2x12 with it. It does pretty much anything and everything. If it can't do it, it's close enough no one would be able to tell.

              • I played a Mesa California Tweed this weekend . . . it was quite different than the amp I'm used to, but after fooling around with it for a bit I think it could be a one amp pedal-less sound for me. There are a ton of lovely, usable sounds in there.

                  I've been interested in this amp. I have the other Mesa like this, a Blue Angel. But I am sure they have learned quite a bit in the 30 years since the BA was released.

                    It does lovely clean and every flavour of slightly overdriven sound really, really well. The power scaling works and there are nice tones in every setting. High gain metal tones or hard rock - nope (although it can do an interesting amp about to explode kind of sound when you max things out). Plays nicely with pedals too.

                      How well does it do the scooped clean Deluxe thing?

                        The EQ is pretty flexible so you can kinda get in the ballpark - glassy/mid scoop-y . . . with a pretty good amount of headroom in the full 40 watt mode. It has a different vibe than a blackface Deluxe though - loose lows, clear highs (maybe a touch less than DR), and I think a bit more mids. I found it easy to get lovely edge of breakup tones at any volume level with the tweed.

                          Watching the videos, it sounds almost exactly like my Blue Angel, except the BA doesn't have a master volume, and can also use EL84s.
