  • compression

    I think I like it .

    I know people say compression is the devil has to be raw and in your face.
    I believed this to but I am getting older and quite frankly lazier and dont feel like fighting an amp.

    Ive been played Elmwood with Kt88 and old marshall with 6550, very uncompressed where i am using delay verb to try and get a slightly wetter sound as am a light touch legato style player.I can play it fine but notice my fretting hand and wrist starting to be fatigued by the end of the night especially with the big bends

    This weekend I borrowed a friends Boogie MKV and my god it was effortless to play and sang for days.
    It kind changed my thinking

    Marks are a more compressed amp but they pull it off well. Not overboard or anything. One of my favs for sure. If you want a good middle of the road boogie get a Mark III. It's a bit rawer than the Mark IV and Mark V but still has alot of the same vibe. Cheaper too.

      Yeah I am looking at the Marks as well as Bogner .Soldano for the easier singing leads

        Marks are modern high gain, but aren't over the top gain, and are still pretty open in tone if you ask me.

        A dood that plays a Rectifier, or a 5150 would think a Mark is to low gain.

          BTW, my Trainwreck Express build is lower in gain than a Mark and is a cross between a Vox and a Marshall, but still has the EL34 vibe to it. Maybe you could look into one of those?

          That amp cleans up to bell like cleans on a single coil with a guitar volume roll back. The Marks don't do that.

            I love natural compression. I also like a compression pedal that is tweaked correctly. Not set correct a compression pedal can sound like total ****************.

              Love the Boss CS-2, a great subtle compressor - In response to Pepi- and I agree that if a compression pedal isn't set correctly it can sound rubbish.

              I'm not a fan of the Ross style compressors.

                Disagree. Im a 5150 guy, and Ive never thought a mark has too little gain. Those things are capable of tons of gain...

                  Compression is awesome, especially if you like to shred


                  It's funny because compression-wise, my two main amps are like night and day (Deliverance being pretty well-known for its dynamic range, while the lead channel on my Fender Prosonic is ultra-compressed) and I absolutely adore them both.

                    I love my UltraLead (probably the least compressed amp ever) for rhythm work, but if you're keeping the gain low, the amp can fight you on lead work. I like to use a clean boost to get a little more gain and a little more compression to keep the leads flowing like liquid sunshine.
