    Hey guys!

    I recently put together a stereo rig consisting of a Mesa Roadster and Mark IV...each running to its own Mills Acoustics 4x12.

    LOVE the setup....layering the different sounds of the heads is really a cool thing to do!

    I was curious on what you guys would do with it effects wise. What I'm really looking at here is Delay.

    At the moment, on my clean and lead sounds, I'm running the Mark IV dry, and the Roadster with Delay (an MXR carbon copy).

    I was curious if this pseudo "wet/dry" setup would be the best way to do it?

    Plan B, if at all possible, was to grab a stereo delay, and run a side of the pedal through each of the loops of the amps...good idea? Better than the first?

    Finally, the Roadster has built in reverb, while the Mark IV does not. Would you say it would be better to run a Delayed Lead on the Mark IV, and a reverb one on the Roadster?

    Thanks for the input!
