Just wondering how much these puppies go for used, i know there 2 grand brand new (lol james hetfield has 4 of them in his rig that bastard) and i've seen them for about 800-1200 bucks, is that about right? About half of the price brand new, just wondering for when i have to money to buy one... and don't tell me what to get, i know the things i want and this is something i wanna try, i'm a metallica fan so you can guess why lol.

yes and i can actually get a really good tallica tone, don't be a dumb ass, saying you can't play metal with a strat is REALLY OLD

i didn't say you can't play metal, i just don't think it's the best guitar for it. that's just my opinion though.

yeah it's not the best i'll admit but it just pisses me off when people say your trying to get a metal tone with a strat etc., it's not as practical but it's more than possible to get a good sounding tone...

Stop double/triple/quadruple posting. There's an edit button, use it


You do realize that with a Triaxis, you also need a power amp right? What era of Metallica are you trying to go for (they've used numerous amps)?

Strats are fine for metal.

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

Lol sorry, i didn't realize that you need a poweramp, but to be honest, the sound is so good with those things i'll pay to buy one, i'm looking for the and justice for all, master and the black album tone, and i know he played with a triaxis and or a mark IIC+ on those, i'm not gonna get an exact tone i've seen james rig lol it's insane, just want a close tone, which i know i can achieve with the equalizer i will buy soon. I can get a good kill em all and ride the lightning tone from my vox already so no need for a marshall.

But my real question is what is the price of a used mesa boogie triaxis preamp, and a poweramp is a PA system right, cause i have a PA i'm putting my vox through already.

Edit: i ment i should be able to achieve a remotely close tone with the mesa and the equalizer.

not gonna tell you what to get .. but do you expect your triaxis to sound any good plug in front of a Vox modeler ???? spending 1300 $ on a triaxis .. you better add another 1300 $ for a Mesa boogie simul class 2:90 power amp to make it alive . cause it will probably sound like **** into your modeler .

I would go for a Mesa boogie Mark III combo ( simul class version ) . they sell cheaper than a triaxis . and youll get the metallica sound right out of the box ( well really close to it .. metallica sound is more complicated as they double the guitar , used a lot of mics etc.. )

you cannot not like the osund of a Mesa boogie mark III .

but a triaxis into a modeler is IMO a huge mistake . wanna try .. go for it . but thats 1300 $ youll wish you hadn't spend .

800+ shipping for the combo

or get the head version 800 $ and get a celestion V30 cab for 500 $ = 1300 $

just a thought .. its your money man ... do what you want ..


the mark III is a lot cheaper than a Mark IIc+ , the IIc+ is rare . the mark III would be fine for what you do .

Mesa Boogie quad preamp and Studio preamp also have channels based on the IIC+ and go for a lot cheaper.

Not once did i say i was plugging it into my vox, mixing and matching amps isn't really a good idea and i know that, i am just wondering how much the thing costs and atleast you awnsered it, i'm still doing research on it, i know that i'm gonna have to buy other stuff with it, i was really just wondering the price of the preamp itself.

Edit:Funny thing is i've seen the mark III numerous times in videos including some of those, yet i searched for them but couldn't find any...

hmm more researching to do

It's got an HB in the bridge, it'll do metal just fine.
