Yea i would love to see the new marks V's rolling off the assembly line have a Midi function built into it so you can use an external midi switch Such as a Fractal Axe Efx II to change amp channels, i would also love to see them have the Cab Clone built into it just like the Mini Mark V.

I think the Cab Clone is a terrific idea. I really hope that it becomes a mainstay on all of their amps. I have been using a Palmer PDI-03 and PDI-09 for years now, and it really helps the FOH people get a good isloated tone. The Cab Clone in the Mark 25 sounds fantastic and it sounded beautiful FOH and in my IEM system. I definitely hope the cab clone gets on the Mark V.

Lately, I've been running my Axe-Fx II units through my 2:Ninety and I love how I can patch out the dry sound from the AxeFx to FOH and still get a heavy duty crunch on stage. The 2:Ninety is an amazing piece of gear. Just love it. I also love the MiniMark. Just really great products from Mesa.

I would like them to bring back a stereo 20 watt with a switch to bring it down to a stereo 5 watts. The single unit size is great. I probably would not buy it in a larger form factor. Something loud enough for a club show, not too loud, and also quiet enough to record at home.

Well, of course- an "exact" internal circuitry MK II c++ preamp...But maybe even even better,revamp the quad a bit-theres a whole to like about it as is though..Maybe a cab clone in her,etc..but im all for a 2 or 3 space mkV rack pre too.Dont know whats happening lately on this, but a while back I thought we may be seeing a completely updated "midi matrix" as rack guru Mario from acxess was thought to be joining mesa.His rack stuff was killer.

+1 for a new power amp that is friendly for home, studio, jam use. Even the old 2 x 20w is far too much for me, 2 x 5w is the most I'm likely to use for most of the year. I've got a Simul-Class 295 if I want to knock down buildings!

And yes, bring back the high gain amp switcher - give it a few more features and re-launch it. There isn't much available on the market and all options are really expensive.

Pretty new to Mesa gear but lovin my Triaxis.

So, my only gripe and wish at this point is USB connectivity and decent software to make full use of all the Triaxis features and be able to share presets and back-up.

Preamps other than the Triaxis, that have a rear input jack.

If I was going to refresh/update or one-up the TriAxis, I would go with a 'Tour of Mesa Tone' Pre-Amp.

2U rack, with maybe 9 modes:

JP-2C Clean, Lonestar Clean, Tweed
Recto Raw, Vintage, Modern
Mark I, Mark IIC+, Mark IV

If we're living la vida loca, go with more modes and add
Fat and/or Brit
Crunch and/or Extreme


I like where eet fuk was going:

Add in USB connectivity, software interface for creating and sharing presets, Cab Clone.

I would also update the rack power amps, midi programmable modes, Modern/Deep, etc. Maybe two models stereo 1U rack with switchable 5/10/25 watts and a 2U rack with switchable 10/45/90 watts.

My 20 watt power amp recently crapped out so I was looking around for options. I came across a Russian company that is making power amps, pre amps and pre/power amps all in one space rack units. I have long wished for a 2 tube el34 power amp and these guys make one in a one space rack unit. -UPDATE- Apparently these guys don't respond to messages so I came to my senses and picked up a Mesa 2 50. It was a novel idea though and if Mesa ever decides to make one I suggest that it come with a bank of low rpm fans rather than one really fast noisy one.

I would also like to see some one space pre amp units that could be combined in a switcher. A 2 channel mark 1, channel 2c+, mark 3, mark 4, rectifier, ect, all with a mesa GEQ for each channel. This would be awesome combined with a rack channel switcher and/or midi options.

Obviously, to bring the Triaxis or something like it back!! I have no doubt they are working on something grand to replace it as we speak...

I'd also like to see them re-issue the Mark series half-back metal grill cabs, which are tough to find.
