The Mark III is the direct prdecesseur clbre Mark IV.
The version I possde is the 60 watt combo: two 6L6. The prampli contains five 12AX7. There is no qualiseur output.
Reverb and presence on the back.
The configuration is quite complex as it is intended grate three channels with only seven (plus two in back) potentiomtres.
However, each of which can be "tirquot; to the collection's outdoor (to make the sounds" fat "or" bright "), which accrot the sonic possibilities of the bte .
And they are impressive. The "versatilitquot; of this amp is not envious of the Road King or triple rectified. The sounds can be fat or become scarce, according to the filters utiliss pulling pots or not.
Do not comment again fMeasure power amps mesa. It will adjust according rglages dploy volume.
The channel is both clear and effective prcis. He will rvler without any piti cart driving.
The lead channel is an overdrive that provides distos 70s.
This, I believe, is the appeal of the BTE is the lead channel 2, a disto type trs 80s: lots of harmonics, sustain, not knowing what make, and especially notes trs "liquid" and dtach each other. These sounds are reminiscent of the canal "lead 2 yellow" of Triax. Connoisseurs apprcieront the auth doubt of this wonder.
Note that this distortion has two paramtres: first, the gain between the traditional and the other, according to a "drive". These possible combinations are used to make many sounds. Lovers of Triax include ...
In fact, the entire FM rock of the 80 that can come out of this amp (produced from 1984), and number of sounds of AC / DC, Metallica, Helloween, Maiden ... etc ...
Everything is top of the BTE.
I regret that this amp is not better known. It be ad clips by his great ERRF ... Note that it covered the prdiode gold rock metal 80s, as it does product since 1984.
Given its performance, the argus is a gift.
APRS six months of use, I would like to emphasize three points:
1) Caution your rglages. The trs trs bte is sharp, and if you do not take the time to tame, you can be of. However, once matrise, it will propel you o the competitors are unable to travel.
2) The more we increase the output volume, the higher the fineness of his finery. I would say less than 3 out of 10, we can not get the very best. To make things easier, I simply splits my microphones, and thus the grain is well Dfine trs.
3) Ms. rglages the extreme can have a good sound. With one of my guitars, I am obliged to the presence, treble and bass 0. The meduims are 4, and the gain of Overd 10. The resulting sound is then trs allchant in clear and clean and aggressive saturated.
With the multitude of sounds that can be achieved, one comes to wonder what the "grain mesa", as it seems versatile.
This particular feature is certainly a handicap for the amp, especially if it is used sounds monolithic. Let us not forget that his is primarily a combination frequency drives, and Mark III is the champion of change of combinations.
