I got raked over more than a few coals a few months ago when I posted a lukewarm review of a Mesa V:25 head that I tried and returned to the dealer. I listened to everyone's comments and did more reading and listening and took advice from quite a few people who recommended I try to find a used Mark V instead of the V:25. So I found a very good deal on a practically new Mark V for $1500 and took it. Got it in yesterday and it has way more options to play with than the mini-Mark so I thought I'd eat some crow and tell everyone thanks for pointing me in the right direction. Still love my little Rectoverb25 but there's room for both in my house. Next up on my list is another cabinet for the Mark.
