Incredible. Looks like you have a Dual Rectifier in there too. Also some other Mark series amps (I'm on my phone so I can't see clearly what ones).


neah, the Triple rectifier head is reserved for home use only and that is a mark V

I might cry :p

How do you like the Mark V comapred to the Triaxis? :)


Somehow i prefer the Mark V better than the triaxis the main reason is because in the triaxis the more gain you add, the more compressed it gets, sure, but that's metal. Every Mesa sound I want is there in the Triaxis except for the Rectifier heavy sound. But then again it depends on your musical genre also..

What's below the Mark V? Looks like a Mark II or III?

Nice!! Do you still have the Mark IV and Mark III, or did you ditch them for the Mark V alltogether? My bro has a Mark V with a Mesa 4x12 and it's killer!!

Haha, well the Mark V definitely blows my 5150 out of the water in every category, except maybe for metal. It's very close. The Mark V is amazing. It's so clear and articulate, and the note separation is superb. But there is just something about the gain and mid structure of the 5150 that can't be beat. It's an absolute beast for metal IMO. Keep in mind that mine had been modified to have an adjustable bias, so I've taken it out of crossover distortion and it's now a lot smoother and less "buzzy" than 5150's are known for. My bro agrees with me on that one BTW.

But yeah, the Mark V is my favorite over all amp I've played through. It's just soooooo versatile.

  • Ibanez RG7321.
  • Jackson PS4.
  • Yamaha electro-acustic.
  • Mesa Boogie Roadster head & 4x10 Mesa Boogie cab.
  • Marshall valvestate combo (old stuff and AFAIK discontinued, bought second hand about 12 years ago. Great for gigs on small places when I don't feel like carrying heavy equipment around).
  • Line6 PodXT3.
  • Several little toys I barely use anymore: digitech's whammy, dunlop's hendrix wah, boss' metal zone, an old korg multieffect (that I carry around just for tuning on stage)...
I have been playing on several bands (mostly metal) up until three years ago. I moved to other different hobbies but turns out I just can't live without music, so I've just began searching for a new band Posted Image
It sucks though that I seem to be unable to choose hobbies that aren't expensive Posted Image

Not sure whether to make a separate thread or not, but this is guitar land.
Thinking of getting an electric to go with my acoustics. First things first I'm no Jimi.
So it doesn't have to have every feature, price limit will most likely be around £200.
I have an Ibanez acoustic which I like, so figured it was safe to look at them.
Any suggestions? I don't like the Axe style, V style, etc.

1 Quite like the look of this;

2 This one might be too much;

3 Love the look here;

4 And here;

I don't know the difference between the types of pickups or what guitars will make which feel of sound. Advice or suggestions would be appreciated. Bands I'm most recently playing to give you an idea would be Radiohead (always), Mumford & Sons, Pearl Jam.

Cheers guys.

I don't really know, I mentioned the bands I'm playing to give an idea. Don't know what different sounds electrics punch out.
