Re: Triaxis coming, using with Road King?

Thanks for the tips! It seems strange that I had sounds predialed with SR and with RK, I had to take down treble and presence. I believe it might be just that parallell loop itself. As there is no problem with TriAxis out of loop. Even with the Mooer Shimverb at SR effects loop, everything’s seems t...

Re: Road King 1 vs Road King 2 ch3&4 difference

Hi, thanks for the reply. I’ve recently added new TriAxis preamp with RK1 preamp and switching them with Rocktron Patchmate looper. I believe I stick with these for a while now, Triaxis for clean, mid-gain and solos (clean 6L6, gain 6L6&EL34) and RK1 for the CH4 modern 120w all tunes in. Probably th...

Re: Road King and TriAxis together?

In case someone else also wonders this question:

It works beautifully.. really the best of the two Mesa worlds (Mark&Recto).

Re: Triaxis coming, using with Road King?

Do you guys have any knowledge of this: When I tried Triaxis in the effects loop of Single Recto, I lost some of the treble. In fact both Single rectifier preamp or Triaxis sounds were muddy. Is that because of parallel effects loop? Even now, Triaxis straight into the effects loop return of Single ...

Re: Internal tube change and cleaning. 2:50, 50/50, 2:90;

I had Stereo 2:50 power amp for 12 years. I installed NOS Mullard 12AT7 tubes in there, for input (phase inverter) and for presence tubes. It helped to have better/slower raise in volume pot. Not so much didn’t like in presence tubes. But my memory is now fading away abiut other changes, if there we...

Re: Triaxis coming, using with Road King?

Ok, sounds great! Looking forward to apply best of both preamps and use Progressive Linkage with TriAxis modes. Say LD2 Green and 2xEL34 and 4x6L6 power amp. :evil:
We have studio booked for April and plenty of time to investigate the sounds.

Triaxis coming, using with Road King?

Has anyone been using Triaxis in the effects loop of Road King? There was chapter in RK manual about this, but I’m asking here some advice. I’m getting new TriAxis tomorrow and have been wondering about to use both RK and TriAxis preamps and switching them with Rocktron Patchmate looper.. any concer...

Road King and TriAxis together?

I just scored a deal on new Triaxis. Been thinking that I would include that with Rocktron Patchmate Loop8 switcher to Road King loop. So I could use Progressive Linkage with Triaxis along with Rectifier sounds missing from the last version of TriAxis. Has anyone been doing that? Road King manual at...

Road King 1 vs Road King 2 ch3&4 difference

Traded my Mark V for a Road King 1 (early models from 2002). Have been wondering and thinking about trading Road King for Roadster or Road King 2. I’m sure here lies the knowledge of differences between RK1 vs Roadster vs RK2 high gain channels? I really like RK1 ch3&4, but is there a difference in ...

Tony Iommi has said the Coliseum (probably Mark Coliseum head though) was too loud for small arenas they play.

Re: Should I swap my Mini Mark for a Mini Rectifier?

I swapped my Mark V for Road King and I couldn’t be happier. Haven’t really played those mini amps, but usually people are into Mark or Rectifier series. I am truly into Rectos. I’ve had Triaxis preamp as well as Recto Preamp. Even had both at the same time and switched them by Rocktron Patchmate Lo...

Re: What NOS tubes suggestions for Triaxis?

Hi! Thank you, I've been having fun with finding good nos tubes across the planet. 8) I believe that Raytheons are grey plate. Telefunkens are ribbed plates and Mullards short plate. I will try to put Mullards in V1 and V5 as you have done. I will have to try to get few american made Tung-Sols also....

Re: Multiple Preamp rack coming together (Triaxis&Recto Pre&

I have a good deal coming on a Studio Pre and I will try to compare it with TriAxis. One question: Is it possible to use TriAxis switch outs for controlling Studio Pre/Recto Pre? It would be nice so that I would save Rocktron Patchmate loops for other purposes. Since I don't have 2:90 it would be co...

Multiple Preamp rack coming together (Triaxis&Recto Pre&???)

Hi there! I recently bought a nice Triaxis v. 2 preamp in addition to Recto Pre and 2:50 power amp. I'm planning to use them both with Rocktron Patchmate Loop8 switcher. Before I order new rack boxes I ask you my fellow Mesa friends, should I leave room for other preamps? There's one Studio Preamp f...
