Putting the rack back together from pieces I have had stored away... Still need to wire it up but here's where I am so far...

Woaaaah wait wat woow that Art IEQ thing is totally and utterly awesome ! I want one ! Didn't even know it existed ! Discovery of the day ! :p:love:
Thanks - yeah it's pretty cool! Back in the late 80s and early 90s I played with a group named Sojourner (a Contemporary Christian group). Our bassist called it The Fish Finder...

If you go to Spotify and search for "He Knows Every Heartache" you'll see Sojourner. I'm on the far right in the group photo. I tried posting a link from Spotify but it actually loaded excerpts from the album to this post, and I'm not sure that's allowed here so I removed the link.

Cheers,

Luther

Back in the day I toyed with the thought of sending a cartoon feed to that monitor... you don't see CRT monitors anymore. Thanks for the kind words japetus!

Cheers,

That would have been hilarious. I wonder how many are out there on the market...If I ever see one for a good price I may grab it to use at shows, just because of how cool it looks.

That ART EQ is great :). Fortunately, I have no more space in a rack, so I must tame my GAS. However, despite of being a bit saturated with gear, I will probably sell Triaxis to make a space for something other :)

How's the Rocktron perform against the more expensive Triaxis?

Well, to be honest, I bought the Triaxis just out of curiosity, as I liked that it looks great in a rack, with all those displays :D. However, I have sold it few days ago. It somehow drove my nuts. Soundwise it was no my cup of tea. And as it is really a deep unit, it bothered me and my cabling system in a rack :).

Compared to the Piranha, I like Piranha a bit more, it suits more to my style of playing. But that doesn't mean Triaxis is bad or whatever, it's a great preamp. That guy who bought it played different styles and got some great tones out of it. So it's up to one's preference really.

What I don't like on Piranha is that on higher distortion it is a bit grainy. It's not that obvious through speakers, but as I am mostly home/headphone player, it bothers me a bit.

So my conclusion is, that I prefer those two preamps above Piranha to Piranha and Triaxis, even they don't have presets and mostly I play what my small daughter dials on them :)

Thanks very much for that review mate! :)

Wet/Dry setup, POD XT for reverb and delay, MP-1 is dry through the 1960TV. Hush’s for the 6505+ and MP-1. Red Coral detune for wet side (6505+/Pine 2x12 w/Small Blocks). MP-1 is using the Roadmaster power section.

XLP does Cannibal Corpse as you might expect.

DST8080 gets Marshall sounds, the Xtreme channel does high gain stuff well and the eq section is great. Power section is a Pearce design, good strong low end. I’ve tried the power section with other preamps too with great results. The button/dial functions are clunky but it sounds good enough that I haven’t sold it.

POD XT I used mostly for effects but the Jubilee, Big Bottom, Spinal Puppet and Matchless sims stand out to me. I still like it for recording and going through a power amp and cab.

Heck, I was tired of the dust and dog hair on my pedalboards, or the idea of constantly bending down to tweak, etc. I bought a stainless steel kitchen cart from Costco ($150) and use that. Anything not in use is set to the side.
