I used to play through a TriAxis straight into my computer's soundcard but thought I wasn't really using it to it's whole potential without a decent poweramp and cab after it, so I sold. But I love how it sounded.............
Just like shreddersymphony I'm now on the hunt for a nice combo that will get me that same sound. I play the same kind of music he does so I've been watching this thread very closely.
I only use two sounds: one for ditortion and one for cleans
On the TriAxis they were: Mark3c channel (Ld1 yellow) for the distortion and the clean yellow for cleans.
Last week I tried a few Laneys and didnt get even close to what I was looking for.
Yesterday I tried a Mark 3 1x12 combo. I started with the clean channel and was really excited when I heard how great it sounded. Crunch was good too, but I don't give a [email protected]
about AC/DC's sound. When I asked the guy to dial in the most distorted tone the amp could deliver I was like....................WTF?!?!?!?
You could barely call that a Metal distortion. Just a very overdriven crunch sound but forget about playing DT or Sx with that............. I was devastated.
He told me Marks were not intended as Metal amps and that if I wanted to get a good metal sound out of it I'd have to put a pedal in front of it.............no way
How is this possible, aren't Marks capable of giving me great Metal distortion without the need of a pedal? I don't want to spend over 1500 euros on an amp and then need to throw a 50 buck pedal in the signal chain.
Next week I'm trying out a Nomad and hope to have more luck with it. Anyone has any experience with this amps????
Hope this helps.
