I'm considering dropping both my amps and one of my cabs and picking up a Mark IV.

But I can't find a regular Mark IV on The Bay...

Then I found this.

The guy doesn't have the wattage listed, and I'm not sure what the difference in tone would be...

I think they're all 90 watt heads.

Is there any difference between the reg Mark IV, and the short head?

Its just a differenct form factor i believe. My friend owns one, its loud as hell and sounds great. I've seen bands like Sevendust and Chevelle using them live. Loudness shouldn't be an issue.

They're all 85 watts.
The short head has a smaller chassis, and can be rackmounted. There are some controls on the back panel that are moved to the front panel on the medium and long heads, but they're exactly the same circuit. The only difference is the width of the chassis/headshell.

Cool, just tired of a cumbersome rig, and the Mark IV sounds great all around. Prog metal, jazzy cleans.

Everything I love.

The MkIV is still gonna be heavy.

Aren't all tube heads?

Better than carrying around two all tube heads and two 2x12 cabs.

O yeah, in that context definitely.
