Well lets just say amp shopping has made my a little crazy with all the options and I will be happy when it is over with but right now I need some advice. I figured out some things 2 channels is all I need and it should be less then 100 watts probly some where around 50. With this in mind I need advice the Carvin V3 wich I heard has fizzy distortion plz varify this, mesa boogie rectoverb wich I have tried and liked better then the mark 4, mesa boogie f-50 wich I am guesing is not better then the rectoverb but don't know, marshall tsl or dsl 50 wich I heard arnt great, and marshall jmc900 50 watt wich I don't like the shared eq. So that is sorta what I am down to becouse everything else is around 100 watts. so plz help also if you know a amp for high gain with atleast 2 channels and an effects loop for around $1000 used of course plz tell.

When this is over with hopfully in the next 3 weeks when I hope to buy the amp I will post pics and start building the cab.

The Mark IV is the best on that list. If you like a Rectoverb more then I would recommend playing the Mark IV a lot more to get a better understanding of the capabilities.

first ya I suck at the english language but hay what can ya do secondly yes the mark 4 is very versitile but I like the sound of the rectoverb more it has more of a low end that the mark 4 is lacking.

What were your settings? My Mark IV has massive amounts of low end, which was actually one of the reasons I bought it because it was so much more than the 5150 I had before.

Either way, the Rect-O-Verb is a good amp though. I'd still pick a Mark IV over it though, but a lot of people prefer them over the Mark sound.

Are you using this for a band? If not you'll want something less powerful than 50 watts.

Mark 4s are nice, I own a TSL and let me personally tell you that most of the people that complain about this line of Marshalls have either 1) bought it looking for a metal tone, 2) never cranked the amp past 12 o clock (thats when the amps true sound comes out), I'll defend the TSL and DSL lines, they can get a sweet biting hendrix close clean to great thick jazz tones with hollow bodies, sick crunch tones and amazing classic rock lead tones

well, you seem to like the rectoverb, sooooooooo i would say go for the rectoverb.
