Those switching jacks on the Simul Satellite?

There are two switching jacks on the chassis: both for the EQ; one is for the Mark IV's remote switching and the other is for standard footswitches. I was under the impression that I would be able to use one of these with the switching jacks on the Triaxis but it does not seem to do anything at all....

Re: 2:90 as stand alone amp and pedal platform?

Oh, yes. The 2:90 is the greatest 6L6 platform I've ever had the pleasure to own. MORE amps should just have two knobs just like the 2:90: Volume and Presence. That's all you need! This is actually great for pedals because getting your pedals to play well with any given amp's tone stack (Bass, Mid, ...

Re: Simul-Satellite

I've got one on the way to my house now! I randomly found it on used.guitarcenter.com for $499.

Re: First steps into Studio Pre + 2:90 rig

The Studio Pre + 2:90 is the greatest tone I've ever found. I play a lot of different styles: jazz, rockabilly, 80s metal, grunge, etc. and after ten years of buying and selling amps, the SP+2:90 has yet to be beat. To me, the "Boogie sound" of Mark amps is basically a cranked Fender Bassman on ster...

FT: Triaxis

I'm no expert on all the Triaxis versions out there, but I'm pretty sure this 2004 model is still the same design as Mesa's latest revision of the Triaxis. I'd love to maybe trade for a... - Quad preamp - Rectifier preamp - 50/50 or 2:50 power amp - 2:90 or 2:100 power amp - Studio 22 (w/ EQ) - 50 C...

Re: New Single Rectifier vs. my old Tremoverb and...

Is it a version 1 or 2? Version 2! Speaking of which, I tried some Mesa EL34's in there and definitely liked the sound with those, but went back to the 6L6's for now. I'll have to compare them again with the amp opened up. So maybe the preamp design is actually slightly different from the Dual/Trip...

... and I'm super impressed with the Single Rectifier! I bought it as a backup to my Tremoverb but now I'm not sure which amp should be the main act. I spent the weekend playing the Single Rec constantly, and comparing it to my other amps. The Single Rec has an overall brighter sound than the Tremov...

Triaxis presence control... Anyone else leave it at zero?

So the more I've tweaked my Triaxis, the more I realize I don't really like what the Presence control does to the sound. It adds sort of an artificial top-end sparkle that sounds weird with overdriven tones. Also after reviewing the manual, it refers to it as the "presence circuit" which makes me th...

Re: Megadeth Festival = No amps anywhere for ALL bands!!!

(It's not a Boogie Board thread unless someone mentions Petrucci, eh?) This reminds me of when I went to see Dream Theater in 2014 and I was all excited to stare at his refrigerator rack for the whole show. But... nothing. No racks, no heads, no cabs. Nothin. What the hell? The worst part is, that h...

Re: Simul-Class tone

Lately I've really been enjoying my Simul 2:90 poweramp by just plugging my guitar straight into it. The tone is so great and gives me just the feel I want from my pick attack, and I've been pondering about how much of this we can attribute to the "Simul-Class" thing. It's funny that I haven't touch...

Mesa 1/3 open back 2x12 - Unknown model/year - WOW!

I found this mysterious Mesa 2x12 cab used at Guitar Center. I wasn't sure if I was going to like it but I took a chance on it anyway. It is 1/3 open back, where the middle third of the back is open, and the top and bottom thirds are closed. I've never seen a cab like this. I looked on Mesa's site t...

A word on the build quality of Tri and 2:90...

So this is not a question - it's really more of a field report. In the last year I have had two bad experiences with Fedex: 1. Purchased a used Simul 2:90 amp online, Fedex dropped it, and it showed up with one rack ear majorly bent with a tasty side of broken glass (two power tubes were pulverized)...

WTT my T-Verb's wheat jutegrille for your black jutegrille?

I have a Tremoverb head which has the wheat jute grille (like this http://medias.audiofanzine.com/images/normal/mesa-boogie-trem-o-verb-head-407038.jpg ) and I would like to change the color of the jute grille.

Re: Which Power amp would be better with an Axe Fx II

Simul-class power amps will color your tone a little, and give it a more "saggy" feel: 295, 395, 2:90 The more "neutral" quality you speak of would be found in: 50/50, 2:100, Strategy 400/500 I've never tried an Axe FX, so I cannot comment on that. Just a wild guess, but, if I had an AxeFX I would p...
