  • Mesa Mark V continues to impress.

    I'm a bassman circuit/ 70s Marshall dude traditionally -but gotta say, a Month in and this Mesa MkV 35 watt head with 2 V30 s in a Traynor slant cab is about as versatile and beautiful as it gets.

    People come over and loose their sh*t on the tone and the various sounds I'm getting

    We A/B'd 6 classic amps in the studio yesterday -and none of them could hang honestly

    Suggest ya'll ninjas give one a try if you get the chance.

    How do the Mark series differ sonically from the Dual and Triple Recs?
    Tone is in the hands, but it helps to have gear that doesn't totally blow ass.

      Less attack, smoother -less compressed -more tone.

        Now I want to play one. How much is this going to cost me?

            Is this the amp John Sykes used to record the Whitesnake album?
            And isn’t it also what Metallica used on Master of Puppets?

              On Whitesnake and Blue Murder Sykes used a Colesium which is basically a 200W Mark III. If I decide to get another amp, these are on my short list.

                I can’t imagine saying “This Mark III here, I need even more power”.

                Then again my Stereo 2:90 is like idling a dragster around a parking lot.
                Oh no.....


                Oh Yeah!

                  Mark V has the classic Fender Tweed setting, classic Mark I, Mark IIc, and Mark IV and even "Extreme" nuclear channel (no negative feedback -basically unleased) amps buiit into one amp.

                      The MKV25 combo goes for a bit over $1600. I’m seriously gasing for this one. Or the JPIIC head.

                        Im using this one in 1000 seat venues mostly -so I went with the 35 watter -but the volume difference is negligible.

                          Yeah, that 35 watt version is a seriously cool amp. I love that it has an XLR out, too.

                            Dunno bout Sykes, but Metallica used a Mark IIC+ slaved into a modded Marshall. So in short, no it isn't.

                              Yup…now that you say it, you’re right.
                              I knew it was a Mesa of some sort, just couldn’t remember what model.
