    You can get 99% of the way to a Mark III no stripe with what you have in IIc+ mode. As Leon said, the no stripe III is just a IIc+ with a different transformer. Considering the vast majority of existing IIc+ amps have had their transformer replaced, it’s not like there are any practical differences at this point.

    Nah, they didn't talk about Load.

    Did you know that Whitesnake's 1987 Record was recorded with two slaved Mesa Boogie Colosseum Mark 3's with a Chorus between them?

    If anyone has any prayer requests, need to talk, or have questions about the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
    Feel free to message me.

    That's pretty much THE album everyone brings up when people talk about the Mark 3.

    These aren't brought up as much, but Lights Camera Revolution and Persistence of Time (Dan Spitz was a Mesa guy) were done with a 3 as well.

    That was also Bob Rock, he talks about in the video. He was working in the same studio and they were struggling to get a sound, they asked him to come over and he got it within about 30 minutes. He describes the slaving with chorus in there as his go to for single guitar, it's something he did with Motley.

    So is Victims of Deception and Evolution of Chaos by Heathen. The new one is apparently a IV. This thread is doing a really bad job of quelling my GAS. Obviously I can get III tones out of the 2C, but the thought of getting the sounds in a box that costs half as much, and using the funds to get another nice amp is really tempting. The 2C is really lucky that I like it a lot.
    C'mon son.

    The point about gear choices over EQ is valid...to a point. If you have a Bob Rock budget, it's fine to record 10 different amps and spends eons monkeying around with mic positioning. However, if the problem being solved is simply to carve out space for the bass at 500hz and the vocals at 1k, well, the channel EQ does that just fine as long as the tone is in the neighborhood.

    The larger point is that there is no amount of EQ that can save a shitty guitar sound.
