Re: Mesa MKII-C+
thanks chris,  
Yeah, You can deffinately see it's fender heritage in the scheme (which is incredibly difficult to read, I had to look at the schemes of the MKIII, Studio, and Formula preamps to get the values of some of the components), I don't know why, but I have always had an aversion to placing the tone stack after the first stage of gain, and from the plate, in high gain situations. for clean I wouldn't think twice. I didn't want to commit this circuit to a pcb unless I had some affirmation that it sounded good. It's really acclaimed, but rare. Alot of the older boogies have that kinda funny "cloth baggy" midrange that you can deffinately hear on recordings. The only boogie from the mark series that i have played was a MKIV which I thought sounded like complete ass. I will never buy a Boogie, but I will clone one.
