Mark Vcan do 95% of what the lonestar can do. The lonestar can do 10% of what the Mark V can do. If what you want is mostly clean and blues. Either of them will do a great job. but the Mark V can do so much more.
In general there isn't a need for 'big amps' You can go to a stadium with a Princeton and be fine. Most places have PA systems. Usually can't turn up a 100w amp, and theres no point in using that much power to have it attenuated out.
It's not for everyone man. I am glad you found something you like and enjoy though.
I've been pretty saddened to see a lot of quilters main line stuff go from MIA to MIC. I won't be buying anything else from them.
I did a 2x12 siesmic empty cab and filled it w/ 2 16ohm Cannibis Rex speakers. Super smooth and clean and warm sounding with my toneblock. I usually keep the Master at around 5-20 and keep my gain about 40-60% depending on which neighbors are home. Glad you are happy with your setup!
This really makes me want to buy a bike. The last bike I got though was a a 6 speed 130USD bike from Academy sporting goods and I felt like I was going to die unless I was going downhill.
Not sure if I am just extremely out of shape and fat (I am)
Or just a cruddy bike
Yeah, so If I let it warm up for about 5 minutes, It wont power off and back on. But the tubes will still kinda pop, crackle and klink when i turn it off for like 5 minutes, in random intervals.
I don't notice anything redplating back there. its just crazy. Otherwise still sounds good. no bad...
