I just hope Mesa will continue to make durable ,hard to break. equipment that sounds great for gigging musicians. Fixed bias, Plug and play durability is what keeps me a Boogie Man!

I would like to see Mesa re-release the Mk IV as the Mark IV C. It would be a lot like the current IV in tone, but it would have many more switches, input/outputs, foot switch jacks, multiple handles and it would weight 250 pounds. Yeah... that's the ticket! :mrgreen:

I would love to see a mixture of the best attributes and tones of the Lone Star & Electra Dyne. I'd like Channel 1 to contain the more American voiced LS with stage 2 of this channel being the ED British voiced clean.

Channel 2 would be the LS's gain channel on one half with the footswitchable solo feature and the other half would be the blue and red channels of the ED.

That would be incredible for the blues and classic rock crowd.

I'm with the guy that said TriAxis II. Although I the voicings listed were fine, I definitely wouldn't leave Mark IIC+/Mark IV.

:lol: Shoemocker, you did get your wish, didn't you!?

Idea #1:
Mesa, you increased the Dual Rec's channels from 2 to 3. How about doing that with the Stiletto? Then in a couple of years, you can have the "Britster," which would be a 4-channel Stiletto with long-spring reverb and effects loop that can be assigned or unassigned to each channel as can the tube rectifier.

Idea #2:
Mesa, you put digital controls on an all-tube preamp. Now it's time to do that to an all-tube power amp. Take that progressive linkage idea and apply to a power amp. For years I've wondered why we have programmable preamps but not programmable power amps. My channel 1 might be 4 EL34's and my 2nd channel might be 4 6L6GC's. So-and-so may opt for 2 EL34's on his 1st channel and a mixture of 2 EL34's & 2 6L6GC's on his. It'd have a menu on front, and you could create programs - just like the programmable preamps. It'd be MIDI so that you could match it with your Triaxis and make a total tone factory. I gotta believe this thing would cost as much as a Triaxis, but it'd be worth it. And you could make another model that doesn't have progressive linkage but that has assignable tube rectifier / diodes and assignable deep & modern voicings.

Idea #3:
Mesa, I do like the idea of a Triaxis II. If you don't though, how about a new preamp to follow in the footsteps of the Studio Pre & Quad? Perhaps the LoneTone? I've always dreamed of how much money Fender could have made had they got into the rack preamp game. Base the LoneTone upon the Lone Star and keep it all tube with no diodes or op amps. No digital stuff. Just 3 channels with assignable long-spring reverb on each channel and an effects loop that can be flipped out of each channel's circuitry. And why not have 3 modes per channel to sweeten the pot?

Well, 1rst of all, I think the new triaxis ideas are great!....and I would add to that for an updated all analog quad pre-just new sounds-.........The preamp arena IS going to heat up in the years ahead- w/ Diezel possibly making one( that will certainly heat things up)...also, not quite amp related though- a ways back mesa took thier try at making a rack looper interface(the midi matrix) that IMO had great features, just not enough of anything it had.....it'd be nice to see them come up w/ something new for all the rack guys :D

A three channel midi head with a voicing in between the hugeness of the recto, and the definition of a Mark, but with a British edge.
Sort of like the Dual Caliber series, but with a dedicated and very fluid lead channel. Something very easy to play syrupy leads on, and easy to dial in.

Channel 1 -mix of Lonestar and TA clean

Channel 2 -british sounding crunch/rhythm channel with three gain levels. (1.Plexi-ish), (2. hotter, similar to Stiletto II fluid gain channel), (3. Similar to recto vintage, but with less sag and more brit sound).

Channel 3 -thick, smooth and tight lead channel with very high gain that's usable throughout its entire range, effortless lead playing channel that cuts through the mix without any harshness.

Some cool features (though I know it'll never happen on a Boogie) would be:

-Adjustable bias with external controls and test points, or at least a hotter fixed bias level so tube changes aren't necessary for good tone!
-Midi (every amp should have these first two features)
-Series effects loop
-Slave out
-Tube Reverb
-EL34s or KT77s stock
-depth control
-variable mid-sweep eq section, rather than a graphic eq

Visual:
-Plexi style, black-croc headshell with black piping, chrome panel (mix of Stiletto/TA look)
-Purple jewel, white leds
-or just jam it all into a Mark style short head.

just some ideas. Obviously very custom and not realistic for a Boogie production amp, but if I could have them design one this would be it, or close anyway.

This last one would be really cool. It would be interesting if Mesa made an amp that incorporated some of the tube swapping abilities that we are seeing in other companies ie. THD, Swart, Victoria. I would love to see a Mesa that uses KT's.

I suppose that I just enjoy reading about what different people think of as their ideal amp. We are obviously all Mesa fans.

Cheers.

A new version of the single rectifier, revoiced clean channel, and 25/50 watt power switching, and plain vinyl front panel.
