Re: Triaxis Sound Issues

News of a Triaxis fix posted with great pleasure. After four years of trying to coax a decent sound out of my triaxis and two expensive trips to repairers it's finally working as it should. The second trip to John Farkis at Pro Audio ( mesa dealers and service centre in the Australian Capital Territ...

I picked it up this afternoon and Watsons did the following: Dismantled it and took voltage readings throughout the circuit Checked the opto-controllers, found the treble and presence well out of calibration, and re-calibrated them Restored all opto controls to f...

Re: Triaxis Sound Issues

I dropped her off at Watsons Electronics, who'll A/B it with another Triaxis they have on the bench, after contacting the tech at Pro-Audio in the A.C.T. this morning. The following advice is from John Farkas at Mesa's Australian distributor. "Hi Peter, by what you have described there seems to be a...

Re: Triaxis Sound Issues

I've been in touch with John at BJ Amplifiers and will drop it in for a service next weekend. He said that as tone's an objective matter he'll check that the components are all working. Then, If I get it back and it still sounds the same, I'll sell it to someone who likes to have their ears scrubbed...

Re: Triaxis Sound Issues

I think I might be on to something. I've learned a few things this afternoon including that Mesa don't answer tech related emails. I did find this mention in a John Petrucci forum that seems to make sense: 01-15-2006, 10:32 AM Dear all Here is the problem:- I noted that the gain on all the lead 2 mo...

Re: Triaxis Sound Issues

Hi And thanks for your answer. I dialed in your settings and still found that the Triaxis sounded like mud. The VHT shouldn't be an issue as it's an incredible power amp with similar voicing options to a 2.90, and the JMP and ENGL sound great through it. I've checked out some MP3s posted on the boar...

Triaxis Sound Issues

I recently bought a version two Triaxis and swapped out the tubes for JJs to try and improve the sound. I run it off a step down transformer through a Furman conditioner in my rack alongside JMP1, Engl 530, and Voodu Valve preamp with a Rocktron gate and GCX switcher, then through a VHT Classic powe...
