    right ..... I was commenting on the Mark V 25 which does have a short tank and is the amp Robus bought
    If you know the secret codes you can get by the mastering boss on level 8.

    I've been playing with the cab emulation on the V25 since I haven't been able to make lots of noise lately. It's very, very good. It has a toggle that lets you select an open or closed back emulation. Open, of course.

    Here are a few sounds with a Tele. The Clean and Fat modes on Channel 1, and the iiC+ mode on Channel 2 are my favorites so far. I haven't found as much use for the Crunch mode as I thought I would. The gain is higher than I want. The iiC+ mode is actually working better for crunch sounds. That mode is a thing of beauty.

    Tell me what you think. I was playing with different delay pedals in the loop. There's an old Line 6 DL4 and an even older analog DOD FX90 pedal in there. The reverb is the spring setting on the TC Hall of Fame.

    Seems natural enough sounding. Not a lot to go on.
    One seems to be 'slide yes?

    Here one to add in the fun..

    No slide. Nice looking Mark V. Have you got any tone clips you could post?

    I've always wanted a Twin Reverb too, but every time I've come close to buying one, common sense and practicality have won out. But I still want one.

    How have you been liking this? I just got one too and so far love it. Hard not to considering what I was using before, which wasnt bad but this blows it away IMO. I need to spend a lot more time with it yet to get it where I want though.

    Hi liv_rong, sorry I missed this. Congrats and welcome to the club! I got mine in late October or thereabouts. It has become my main recording amp because it is so adaptable. I haven't really explored the gain channel all that much. For the music that I am making these days, clean to overdriven is more useful. The clean channel is very nice. I also got a closed back mini-rectifier 1x12 cab. I wish instead that I had gotten an open back cab. However, I often hook it up to run through the speaker of my Fender combos. If I were doing heavier music, the closed back would be more useful.

    If you haven't yet, explore the DI/emulation on this amp. It sounds pretty darn good as is insanely useful for practicing and working up guitar parts if you are a night own as I am. Previously I was using the DI out on my Tubemeister 18 in that role, but Boogie's emulation is in a different league altogether.

    In terms of complexity, this amp is like no other I have owned. Small tweaks add up to big differences, and there is definitely a learning curve. Generally speaking, gain goes up, bass needs to come down. If you want more bottom in your heavier tones, use the graphic EQ rather than the tone pot. If you want a Fender-like clean, don't be afraid to drop the mid pot waaaay down (Bob's suggestion). The treble control is hugely important. As I understand it, it not only controls the upper mids, but also the amount of signal that goes to the mid and bass pots downstream. So boosting or cutting the treble will also have the ripple effects on other parts of your signal. Weird. Dialing it in can be a bit like solving a Rubix Cube. Trick is just keep experimenting, and make a note of the settings when you find something you like. These features are explained in great detail in the manual, as you've seen.

    This is my favorite amp as well after many different combo's. How are you guys dealing with recording this thing. Has anyone tried the Direct out vs diff speaker combo's?
