Oh I’ll be the first to acknowledge sick chugga chugga = therapy, but a boost and these amps do not equal peanut butter n jelly.
That’s actually a really good point. Do new combos inherently sound worse right out the gate due to a speaker that has not yet been broken in?Might it be due to the unbroken in speaker?, you know, the speaker being too stiff yet for being new...?
One might want to test a new amp with old speakers for reference...? Bu yeah, it's not likely for one to lug a 412 cab and personal guitar into a store to tryout a new amp, right?
My first Mark IV was a used 1x12. Played through it a little, and then plugged it into my 2x12....immediately returned it to guitar center and waited to find a head for sale.An unbroken, open back 1x12 is a recipe for disaster if you're trying to get high gain tones.
Dude has the worst tones. No way you can make the IV sound bad like that. Hahaha
Yeah most of the time you want to run a V-shaped GEQ. Boost the highs and lows, scoop the mids. By default the Mark series amps are super thin and honky.
