  • HNAD!! (Well almost) Mesa Mark content.

    Hello HCAF 3.0!

     

    So I am proud to announce my new amp day. It has been about a year since I've last had a tube amp and it has been absolutely dreaful. I had to focus on school and now that I am transferring out, there are about 6 more months before I leave that allows me to get back into some music.

     

    Today, I have purchased a green stripe Mesa Mark III. Pics will be available asap. From the moment I plugged in, the tone was amazing. I've never heard such a great clean up until now. It was in really good condition but did have some scratchy pots so my first stop was to Petaluma (I live in SF) and drop it off to the professionals to have it cleaned up. I'd rather do it now while I can be disciplined enough and have it back sooner than later while being completely happy.

     

    So I will be using this as a main rig and will be using all three channels as much as possible. I understand that a lot of things are shared, however the R2 volume mode seems like it will give me a lot more versatility and practicality.

    P.S. Still on the hunt for a 2x12 recto cab but and am open to suggestions for speaker combinations!

      Thanks m34t,

       

      I'm really looking forward to this for my live setup. So far I think I will be looking into the thiele cabs for starters. Heard it's a huge sounding cab and is lighter on the back then a 4x12.

    I've played Mark IIIs for 22 years, never saw the need for the R2 mod.

    Now the C3PO mod, that's totally different! (jk)
