Expertise all from watching YouTube, eh?The Mark I sounds more accurate in the YouTube clips where the Mark 2 is more like an OD pedal that gets about 50% of the way there.
The independent treble booster wasn't such a bad idea: I often run it through my DLS MKIII, and it also allows the 'tweaked CB30' side to be run on its own or stacked with other boosts/fuzzes for more flexibility. I know that the treble booster side was specially tuned for May tones, but I was slightly surprised that it had less gain than either of my diy treble boosters (silicon May boost & germanium rangemaster clone).Expertise all from watching YouTube, eh?
MKII has a much better feel. It is dialed in such a way a player doesn't have to know much about how to set up an AC30 in order to sound rad. MKI had a stiffer feel. Having the treble boost circuit usable independently was stupid because what were you gonna do, use it into a clean amp?! We don't release new versions of things unless we're confident that we have done an even better job than the one before.
The MKII is not discontinued.Expertise form watching YouTube? No offense but when I can't try a discontinued pedal I may ask. I'm going to assume your reply was sarcastic and not insulting, but I know others that wouldn't--and consequently wouldn't purchase.
I don't dislike the clips that PGS has posted but they seem to lack the woodiness of an AC30- granted its a pedal and not an actual amp.
I always liked the treble booster on the MKI, even if it's inclusion was difficult for users to to wrap their heads around... We had a lot of people ask if we could put the boost after the distortion or complain that the boost cut lowend and isn't "clean". The boost side is essentially a hard coded Naga Viper pedal and can be used independently from the distortion side.Generally speaking id love to try both. Part of the reason I was looking for the Mark I info is to see if the treble booster was worth it on its on. I'm not looking to clone May's sound, just to get in the ball park with a strat from time to time.
I'm sorry if I came off like a jerk. YouTube has changed the world, it is a shame that they have such poor audio quality. I mean even the volume slider on the bottom of their interface has a poor taper! Now look at me complaining.The Mark I is, which is why I asked. Can't very well go demo that. Apologies for any misunderstanding.
Yep, even when it misses the point! MKI was cool, but for the job I really think it was quite a bit overkill.Oh cool. That I didn't know. I can imagine anytime you roll 2 effects into the same enclosure people are going to complain about the order etc.
