    Yeah, it's either the Mark 4 or the Mark 5. Not sure which to get. :ugh:

    I've been listening to a lot of Sevendust and Dark New Day lately, so I'm more biased towards the 4.

    ask @Wizard of Ozz he's got pretty much all the mark series heads. I'm pretty biased towards the 4 since that's what I have right now, though the III sounded super fucking mean when I tried one a couple of weeks back.
    From what I've heard there's no reason to get the jp2c over the mkiv or mkv unless you REAAAALLY want that accurate IIC+ sound.

    The 5s seem more common, but I wonder how accurate the 5 can be to the 4? The 4 seems to be the most unique sounding of the bunch. It's got a more scooped sound compared to the others, but has this insane growl when recorded. it just sounds fucking killer in a mix.

    Yeah, the clips I heard show the 4 sounding completely different than the JP2C. The 4 sounds VERY aggressive in the midrange, while the JP2C sounds smoother. I bet the Mark 5 sounds much closer to the JP2C.

    JVM410 is also on my bucket list, right after the revv gen and the mi gamma :lol:
    I don't know if that's the most accurate comparison. The guy who made that demo even said that he didn't match the eq/settings.
    this is a pretty solid vid comparing the iii, iv and V

    I'm going by what owners have said, but the thing that intrigues me about the Mark 4 is the "rawer" sound. I've seen some people describe it as smooth or liquidy, but I don't get that impression. It seems to be the meanest sounding head of the bunch, with the JP2C being the most polite.

    Plus if I were to go by the Axe models alone, the USA Lead definitely did seem to have more aggressive bite than either the IIC+(+) or the USA Pre.

    from what I've experienced the III is pretty raw, and the iv is comparatively smoother but still able to get quite aggressive. I'd say none of the newer ones are quite as raw as the III. The V/JP2C they can also get pretty aggressive ( at least on par with the iv ) as far as I can tell from kemper profiles/demo vids.

    Gonna be a real bitch figuring out which amp to get. :lol: It's either the Mark 4 or the Mark 5 because I love both the Mark 4's lead channel and Mark 5's extreme mode.

    Yea dude those are awesome. I'm either going to snag a 6 in the white or wait for the reissue of the walnut burl hype.

    The GTRs are such sick guitars for the money.

    I really do. Although I'm currently in talks about acquiring a very special 6 string Goliath. Have had a few financial setbacks lately, but looks like a corner has turned and hopefully I'll be able to manage both!

    I'd love one, I just don't want to wait over a year to finally get it. That's why I've never gone through with getting an Ormsby.
