Like the guy from the Hair Club for Men. Not only the president, also a member.
homesick, thanks for this. Have had the amp a couple weeks, gigged it twice, and am just really impressed.
best small amp; that manages to sound big. Not an easy feat to pull
That it does. My only complaint is I feel like I’ve not been able to really open it up. I play it louder at home than at gigs.
I’ve been running Ch 1 on the edge (clean or fat depending on the guitar) and Ch 2 on IIC+ with moderate gain. Then use the sliders as what essentially amounts to a mid boost for solos. Has been working well.
Anyway, I tried both the D and M settings you had. Seemed to come alive a little more with my Tele than my Strat. At first I sort of thought they were both novelties, but after a couple subtle tweaks (like you recommended) I realized I had something I could really work with. I decided to run both of them this Friday night when my 60’s band plays. I’ll either use my Tele or a P90 LP Jr. Variety keeps things fun!
Sure thing also don't forget to use the 10 watts setting - works great
Another ESSENTIAL recommendation for gigs where you can't turn up, is the EMINENCE REIGNMAKER, with FDM control. Get it like, yesterday. Works perfectly with that amp. Unbelievable versatility, it boils down you can cran a good 3 notches up. Google it
I may see how 10w works next time out. We will be mic’d up I believe. Not that this thing suffers from lack of volume.
Will check out the speaker!
If you're using a 112 cab; the EMI is heaven-sent. You won't regret it; plus it cheap
the 10 watts settings works great indeed
Finally; (& I start sounding like a mesa salesman); the DI out is just perfect; if you;re in a squeezed place & don't want the mic to bug you
This little thing will keep getting better & better & rewarding you
Wow, I just registered on this site so I could say that is a sweet sounding Mesa tone. I'm shopping around for a V:35 right now and I can't wait to try this out once I score a 35 combo.
Hey man, I just want to say thanks for posting thise settings. I have a Mesa Mark V 35 that I just haven't been able to bond with completely. You know, good, just not great. At least IMO. I went back to using my Suhr Badger 30 just because it was working better for me that the Mesa. Then I stumbled on this thread. Wow, what a huge improvement. I gotta admit, I would've never arrived at those settings myself for this kind of tone. But none-the-less, they work. And work well.
So thanks once again.
glad you like; btw there''s couple other tricks /settings I've posted too
I'll check them out. Thanks !!!
Thanks to this thread, my next amp is going to be a Mark 5:25 Combo.
Any concise link to a list of setting suggestions?
Marshall: no reverb
Channel 1 - Crunch
Gain - 10-11' (not too much more in the 18-plexi range - that's how I like it at least)
Mid = Full
Treble/Bass = defeated (by the mid -boost)
Presence = around Noon
Master = as much as possible
Eq sliders = boost the 2200Hz till 2/3rd up - back off the middle 1/3rd down - all the rest to taste
