    When I was just in the market for a Mark IV, they are now retired. I like to buy tube amps new and was just wondering what's the next best thing or replacement for this amp? I like distorted leads and heavy rhythm sounds. Not a blues guy.

    Does anyone else have this amp that can help me out? I am looking for the early 80's metallica tone. I am trying to do this with my carvin x100b. I am pretty close, but even with the graphic eq there is like this extra bass that I can't get rid of. Any suggestions for setting the eq.

    Something like a Mesa Express 5:25 but doesn't break the bank.

    Hello, I would like to buy a Mesa amp, but I am not sure which model will suit me best. I'm constantly using pinch harmonics and whammy bar dives. I like my gain sound, to have a tight bottom end, be midrangy and lots of bite. I am into people like Harry Cody (Shotgun Messiah), Steve Vai...

    Here is what I want ... 1. an amp that sounds GREAT at bedroom levels; plus 2. LSC cleans; plus 3. mark IIC+ leads; plus 4. RKII crunch; plus 5. sells for under $200 (just kidding). The crunch I can live without but what amp gets me closest to the first 3 on my list? MESA or any...

    I've done research on harmony central and these forums, and have looked around for decent prices to purchase either the ADA MP1 or the Mesa Studio Preamp. Both have gotten rave reviews. From what I've heard, they can both do a good bit of gain, and have great tone. I've never actually seen a...

    I am getting some great sounds out of my Pod XT and I was wondering ... What exactly is the difference in sound quality playing live in a small club using just a Pod XT, stereo amp, and quality speakers vs a good amp. I am getting a really sweet tone out of my Mesa Boogie Mark IIc+ Pod XT...

    Okay, so I've been searching for a while to get my first tube amp, and the Mesa Mark Iv has really grown on me, so I've decided on that. But I have no idea if I should get it in Head/Cabinet form or a combo. I would prefer getting the combo due to the lack of space I have in my room (And its...

    Hey, I got my first Jem a few months ago but I don't have any decent tube amps (A solid state 30w Laney, a tiny valvestate Peavy and a valestate Marshall). I have decided to buy myself a new tube amp sometime this year, but I'm not sure what amp would be best for a Jem. I was looking for...

    Hey guys so long story short my name is Christopher and I'm a Mesaholic. I've owned a bunch of different Mesa / Boogie heads and rack pieces and whatnot over the years and I think that's the direction I'm heading now. The last couple of years a combination of finances and the projects I was...

    Here is my fresh myspace site, with two songs on it. 1. An over the top guitar shred song called Acid Pain, done with an Ibanez custom Rg through a Mesa Boogie mark IIC+ 2. A very soundscapish tune called Julies sister, which is improvised with acoustic guitar through an Eventide Orville, this...

    I thinking about buying a new amp. Instead of this being another "I need a good amp . . . DISCUSS!!!!!" style thread, I've got a very specific idea in mind with what I want. I just dont know exactly where to look. I've played a fair share of amps, but usually not at stage volumes, usually at low...

    At the moment, ive got a Mesa TriAxis and 2:90 setup, with a Rocktron Xpression as the effects unit. Im *almost* happy with it, but the TriAxis has a clean edge to it, while im looking for a more saturated tube tone. Ive ordered a keeley DS-1 to try and boost the amp, and im selling my...
