Can I still join the party? :cool:
After a long time, I finally managed to hunt down an early '97 TriAxis. Specifically a "non-phat Recto (TX4-D) model for those in the know. A rare beast (specially the EU voltage version) made from 93 to 97. Tubes on it are TAD 12AX7A-C.
It's in a very...
This thread started as a thread about my TriAxis being noisy, but it's evolved into a more general thread on TriAxis technical stuff. I'll update this post with the useful stuff.
The solution to my noise issues was a combination of new tubes, and an inspection of the point-to-point...
James (7DT) still has more amps than me, but I'm quickly approaching Leon territory for sure.
So this one has a story. I was late-night websurfing on Reverb.com and saw a Triaxis listed for a crazy low price, and it was in pretty much mint condition. I hemmed and hawwed on it for about 20...
In my time I've had a lot of mesa amps. To list them, 3 50/50s, 2 2:90s, TriAxis, Single Rectifier, Triple Rectifier, Mini Recto, and Mark V 25. I feel like along with these, I've played almost every amp they've ever made, with the exception of the TA series and the new TC 50 and 100 amps...

It's interesting looking back and seeing how my rig has changed over the past 10 years.
Here's my 2004 rig I recorded my first solo album with, pretty simple rack and way too much speaker cab:
Over the next couple of years I really messed with the rack and created what I consider the...
Love this thing, but I just don't play it anymore. I got the TA from Vince (first owner) several years ago, and it came with a ding in the face :lol:. Aside from that, there is no damage. The tubes should be OK, I replaced them shortly before I bought my Stiletto, which, I think was the final...
Wirelessly posted (Wondernuts)
Well I turned my amp on today and started playing and decided to create some new patches for new guitars I've gotten. Well since it's been so long since I've created any patches I was taken aback by how god awful all the space patches I was creating were. Then...

So, I fire up the rig for practice last night, and get this sound that's sort of like what I'd imagine it sounds like inside a jet engine as a plane is about to take off. At first I suspected the power amp, and plugged the TA right into the board (the drummer is in a separate room, so we send...

I just can't get a decent tone out of you. I've tried swapping tubes, running you into power amps and cabs, into a Palmer PGA-04, using your Recording Outputs and the direct outputs into Impulse Response files. Everything sounds way too bassy and/or noisy. Your gain structure is...
I edited some presets on my TA, assigned them to midi program numbers, and now my midi pedal isn't changing anything. It's changing channels on the GSharp just fine, just not the TA, which is weird, because the TA is the first in the chain.
It's a surprisingly light unit. Looks really cool too, and with the front handles it's really easy to install in a rack top-down. I have yet to install it in any rack just yet, but I had a lot of fun with it this afternoon plugged through my 2:90 and 4x12 cab.
