If I sold these three to get the Mark V, would it be worth it? Only way I could ever afford it.

Only you can answer that question.
Are you happy with your current sound?
Would you miss any of the amps you currently have?

Ive heard the Mark V can take a while to tweek and get right. So if you got the time, then go for it.

Id only really go for it if it were THE sound im after.

Hope that jibberish helps a little aha

Well, the Mark V is fantastic if you're into it, so you could. Then again, are you happy with what you have and what do you miss in your setup?

I would sell the classic 30 and express, but not the recto. You might not like the tight/dryness of the mark, and they are fairly different.

There is no way we can answer this.

I personally would rather have 3 amps and I would be hard pressed to get rid of a Tremoverb. The Classic 30 is a decent piece of kit as well.

If you are looking to save space and wanted to simplify then a Mark makes a lot of sense (if that is a tone you after). If you NEED all three amps to get the tones you are looking for while gigging/recording then I could def see loosening your load down to just one amp.

After recently trading my baby (VH100R) for a Tremoverb combo plus the times I've played the Mark, I wouldn't. The Tremoverb is incredible. Especially if you have a tech that can go through it and make some smart mods. Like cleaning up the AC section and stuff.
I'd sell the Classic 30 and the Express and get a really nice amp to compliment the Tremoverb.
If it were me, I would sell the other two and scoop up a Lonestar. Mmmmm. haha

I love my Mark V, but I'll tell you, after having it 9 months, I'm still tweaking it. There's just so many different options.

+1 to this.

If you like your Tremoverb, don't sell it. The Mark and the Recto series are TOTALLY different sounds, and will compliment each other well. The Mark is most similar to your Express, though with much more gain and beefiness.

Thanks for responding. I've had that tremoverb for about 20 years and was checking out the Roadster and the Mark V lately. It IS a great amp, but I was beginning to think I needed to upgrade. However, you guys have demonstrated some love for that amp and reinforced my own feelings about it, so it is staying. I suppose I will stay put with my current line up.

Good to know there was so much love for the TOV. I put JJ EL-34's in mine. It is nice.

Another option would be to keep the TOV and sell the Classic 30 and Express for an earlier Mark series amp. You could find a Mark IV for around $900-$1000 if you're patient, and a Mark III would run about $600.

^^The Trem-O-Verb is considered by many to be the best amp ever made in the Rectifier series

Yeah. And you can pretty much mod the Mark IVs to have any sounds you want. It's incredible.


Also, The Tremoverb is certainly the best Recto I've had. It's my 5th I think. Had a 2 channel, Multiwatt, Single Rec, and a normal three channel dual.

This thing just slays it.

Mark IV + TOV would be amazing.

it really depends on your situation. Personally I find that different amps which are aimed at a specific tone normally do that tone better than a jack-of-all-trades amp (often even when the one-trick pony amp is much cheaper than the jack-of-all-trades amp).

However, if you current amps don't do the tone(s) you want and the mark will do them better, or if you have a reason why you need access to all those tones within the one amp (for easier gigging, for example, or if you're running out of room to store multiple amps), that would be a good reason to go for the mark.

Very difficult for us to answer, as I said.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.
