Nice Mesa Boogie Commercial.
It sounds almost as good as a Marshall. Almost.
You really gotta laugh about all the advertising Mesa plants in the Marshall Amp Forum.
They don't even try to disguise what they are doing (anymore).
Is that really the case? Didn’t the same guy demo a Marshall too?
To be fair this is the “other amps “ section. I for one appreciate the demos. It’s all fun for me and he does a good job.plus he picks good songs that highlights the amps strengths.
Yep, there is big money in advertising out of production amps. If I were running Mesa I would dump at least 30% of the companies money into running add's on the Mark 1 and 3, but targeting the Peavey and Vox forums. (That's where the big bucks are.)
Ha- You made my day with this comment man.
There are some strange people out there. The internet is a great reminder of this
Always happy to help! Please keep up the good work, it’s a pleasure to check out your posts. I appreciate a lot of amp brands, and Mesa has always been top quality in my book. Love to see some Mark 2C+ “ads”.
Yep, sounds like a MkIV
I like the hard tightness, but there's that something in the upper mids that scrapes my ears, it's in the preamp's distortion. Even my TC100 has a little of that sound when I dial the preamp gain up too much
Great post, good playing and song choices
very nice. again marshall has nothing to answer this with.
what did they plant and where? (so we all can enjoy it too)
The best way to get the upper mid out is run an OD pedal in front of it. Most people run the drive all the way down and the level around 3. Keeps from coloring the tone yet takes that ice pick mid out. Try it out, it made a big difference for me.
I usually run a SD-1 with Level up and the Gain down in front of my Mark V. It lets me keep the amp Gain lower and keeps things tightened up. I'm not sure how well that would translate over to a IV but on the V (in IIC+ or IV mode and even in Crunch mode) running the amp Gain lower and letting the pedal push the front end works really well in my experience.
can ya not run a EQ pedal in the loop.
You probably could but since it already has an EQ it never made much sense to run two at once. To me anyways.
you might be surprised. well, then again it might not work either in this case.
do you have a EQ pedal you can try?
Mark IVa owner here too. Thanks for posting. Didn't catch what speakers and cab you are playing through. Mine sounds amazing through a Marshall JCM800 4x12 with original g12-65s. Way better than a recto cab with v30s. Talk about a mid fest you can't really dial out. Go figure.
Marks have a ton of mids. The OP used mid gain on top of it. I use harmonics and avoid v30s with this amp.
That sounds terrific!!
Great job, man.
What did you use to record?
