Re: NOISE, NOISE, NOISE...

It all looks ok, I have a couple of questions though.... Your germanium fuzz, Nice bit of kit........ Looking at it, it looks like it's centre negative, positive ground like the old germanium fuzz faces.... If that's the case and you're using the Gig Rig Generator with just a distributor that won't ...

Re: NOISE, NOISE, NOISE...

Hi and welcome to the forum, I feel your pain... However, there is light at the end of the tunnel. First of all, make sure all the power cables are routed away from your audio cables. In my rack I have all the power routed to the left, and the audio and midi to the right as you look into the rack fr...

Re: back in rack heaven

What I might do is split the GCX... Loops 1 thru 4 for mono effects, and loops 5 thru 8 going through the FX loop, i can then add the G-Force, and any other time based effects to the loop in the Triaxis.

Re: new rig assembly

Hi, and welcome to the forum. Simple set up really, how you set it up is up to you but there are 2 basic ways of doing it. You haven't stated what your knowledge of midi is, so forgive me if i'm teaching you to suck eggs, but I'll start basic. In series or through the FX loop of the Engl. I'll give ...

Re: back in rack heaven

Ok guys, first of all the Boogie Triaxis. I bought a new output pot and it made no difference at all!!.... Seeing as the difference between left and right isn't that bad I've just adjusted the output volume of the power amp to compensate, and that's dealt with that issue until I get the Triaxis serv...

Re: back in rack heaven

I've swapped some tubes around with no significant change at all in the volume of channel A. I have however noticed something odd. The stacked output knob that controls both channels A & B seems to be a bit iffy. let me explain. When I turn the smaller knob for channel B the volume increases and dec...

Re: back in rack heaven

As for V5, the "Effects Return Stage" tube, it most certainly could cause this sort of thing if one half of the tube is failing. A 12AX7 is a Dual Triode type tube... think of it as two tubes in one bottle. In this case you have a Stereo signal going to this 12AX7. This means that it has to have th...

Re: back in rack heaven

Hi John, forgive me.... but for some reason I thought you had a Triaxis. i know you have a G-Force..... You are absolutely correct, we did discuss this in a previous thread, however with the issue around the boost pedal i thought I'd give the loop another go and also so that I could try the boost pe...
