So then the Mark V's sliders are active, but the Roadster's controls are not? I could've sworn I read that the Roadster has an active EQ...

It looks like a less complicated version of the Mark series amps with less watts. It sounds pretty good though. Good for someone who wants versatility without having to do anything complicated in order to achieve their tone.

Eh, I've never been too impressed with the Express line.

The controls are cool though, it might have something new

if their preferred tone varies often like mine... the mark iv is a good friend to have around

3 Channel model, has about 20hrs on the tubes too. Might be selling it this week but I'm not sure on the buyer yet. Excellent mint condition and been used in a studio environment it's entire life.

So I was at GC the other day and tried out a used Nomad 100. Unfortunately the clean channel wasn't working, but from the other 2 channels let me just wow..I'm not in the market for a new amp, but I'll definitely look at one of those when I am. It was much better than the JVM I tried out next to it, and at about a quarter of the price.

Going to try out a Mesa subway blues rocket in a few days for my first Mesa, really looking forward to it, anybody have anything to say about this amp? Anything I should know?

not enough experience with rectos, besides demoing them at guitar shops. i think they have their own distinct tone that should be heard/played in person. power section needs to be pushed a bit to get the best out of them, because at low volumes the tone suffers badly.

i have most experience with the mark iv, and not too much with the III or II.

pros:
3 channels with their own voicing that can't be replicated by the other two.
good amount of options for power section and voicings.
very versatile.
unique sound.

cons:
takes time to get the feel of the controls the first couple weeks/months/years
reverb is 'meh'

hope that helps!

So, I recently bought a Mesa Boogie Recto Traditonal 4x12 cab and I also have a Mesa Mark IV combo version b amp. I've never owned a cab before so bear with me. How do I set up my Mark to use it as a head for the cab? I know I have to connect it with a speaker cable right? and I use the speaker out (or whatever it's called) feature on the back of the amp? How do I know which impedance/ohms to use? I don't know too much about this so if possible give me details please.

Ok, first things first. You always need to have 8ohms of impedance on your speaker output, and you can do this two ways; a single cable running from the 8ohm output on the back of the amp to the 8ohm input on the back of the cab, or you can run two cables (one from each 4ohm outputs on the amp) to the corresponding 4ohm inputs on the back of the cab. The difference btwn the two setups is that the single 8ohm setup is mono, and the twin 4ohm setup is stereo, but both provide 8ohms of resistance for your head. It's important to remember that using anything other than 8ohms of total resistance will damage your head in the long run.

Oooooh so that's why there are different output ohms! Thanks man that cleared up some things for me .
