Re: Triaxis Sound Issues

Most caps don't last 20 years in any electrical device. Being a bit hard on Mesa aren't you?

Re: A super cool guitar rig, with vintage Mesa Boogie equipt

All you need from that auction is the triaxis, tc gforce, and 2:90 with a rack to transport it in and maybe an expression pedal. That rig would sound excellent for ALL STYLES of music be it rock, metal, country, jazz etc.. nowhere near $20k. More like $2500 used.

Re: Do you name your guitars?

Only my Les Paul has a nickname, since it previously belonged to a well known guitarist and all my friends refer to it as "The Sykes".

Yes. Uli also played on Taken By Force, Fly to the Rainbow, In Trance, and Tokyo Tapes. He is one incredible musician.

Re: Discovered April Wine ... Wow

The album 'Nature of the Beast' is the best by April Wine. Myles Goodwyn is a great songwriter. Steve actually sent something to Myles to sign by fed ex, signed it himself, then shipped it to me. As legitimate rock stars, I must say they are straight up guys. Very cool to see and chat with the peop...

Re: Running a recto 2/100 in mono.....

From the 2:100's manual: The amplifier is stereo, offering two separate channels of amplification. If you wish to use only one of its channels, it is neces- sary to: 1 ) Make sure a speaker (or load resistor) remains con- nected to a speaker jack on both channels, including the unused one; OR 2 ) T...

Re: Dead triaxis - first stage no sound!

My advice is to call Mesa. They are the ones that have the required knowledge to troubleshoot the unit. Good luck.

Re: Best Replacement Guitarist?

Ulrich Roth for Michael Schenker in the Scorpions, then Matthias Jabs for Ulrich Roth, then Michael Schenker for Matthias Jabs, then finally Matthias for Michael Schenker....oh I am so confused now...all three great replacements for the Scorpions at one time or another.

Re: Dialing a Mark V lead channel to Mark IV

I'm not nostalgic about my MKIV. I tried the MKV numerous times and still prefer the IV's lead channel to the V's lead channel. The IV's lead channel is more versatile and organic sounding to me due to not having gain fixed at 7.5 and the push pull options. I think the V's channels 1 & 2 are better ...

Re: % of tone - hands vs. rig.

The gear is what makes the nuances created by the hands and brains of players special. Crappy sounding and incorrectly set up gear is not inspiring to the experienced and talented player. Sure I can sound like myself identity wise with a subpar amp and guitar, but it's not going to sound the way it ...

Re: Preferred EL34s for the Mark III?

I use some of the old Svetlana EL34's in my MKIV that sound great. Should sound good in a MKIII.
