Cool.. I am trying to contact the seller but he hasn't got back to me yet.. I asked if he can ship worldwide.. I guess he doesn't like that idea. smile.gif will see.

Thanks Muris.

Yeah, it says shipping to US only.
There are some items on ebay with same shipping info
but seller also leaves a note to contact him for shipping out of US.
Unfortunately, I can't see that note for those 2 items... sad.gif

Ok... we had a few conversations and he only ships to confirmed paypal address.. so will have to ask my friend in US to help me out.

Interestingly, all of his items have 0 bids ( only 2 items have 1 bids). What does that tell us?

Hmm... If things go well, I should have them in a few weeks.. m so excited.

I have not yet completely understood how G-Force comes into play. I believe this is more like a digital effects unit like chorus, delay, reverb, octave, etc (without the distortion) 24-bit. How do we connect it?

Guitar, Triaxis -> G-Force -> 2:90 -> cab ? (in a live situation)?

and Guitar -> Triaxis -> G-Force -> Computer for recording?

For live, what pedal you to change between like clean tone and the dist channel, or say another chorus channel? MIDI controller?

I missed a GForce unit for $685. (but the reserve was not met so i guess he will resell again). smile.gif

For changing channels or any MIDI commans, any MIDI foot controller can do the job.

Original version is version 1.

Regarding Triaxis versions,
version 2 comes with Phat mode,
version 1 doesn't have Phat by default
but it can be upgraded easily, as I said.
There is also version 3 out, I think.

How to connect?
Triaxis has FX Loop and best way to connect G-Force with it
is via FX Loop, that means that signal from Triaxis goes to G-Force,
effects are added and then the whole thing is sent back to Triaxis.
This type of connection is very good for recording since
Triaxis has Recording Outputs with some kind of speaker simulators ON.
You can use same connection for live gigs as well,
in that case you would use main outs from Triaxis to send signal
further to power amp and then to a cab.
Some people prefer connecting then in serial way,
Triaxis -> G-Force-> Power amp etc.
This is matter of personal preference tho.

And yeah, any midi controller would work to change presets on both Triaxis and G-Force.
I have Rocktron Midimate and it works just fine.
Tho you would would need one small midi cable to connect Triaxis and G-Force:
from midi controller to Midi IN on Triaxis, then from Midi OUT on Triaxis
to Midi IN on G-Force (with this small cable).
Triaxis also has phantom which can powers midi controller
straight through the midi cable so you won't need adapter on stage, very useful. smile.gif

One possible place to find a used Triaxis are the various specialised forums. People often put up gear there that isn't sold on ebay/craigslist and so on.

The link I gave Muris for fretless guitars has a used gear section. One guy on there was selling quite a lot of high end amps. From memory there were some Mesa amps in his list. Similarly people often list high end stuff on the main Allan Holdsworth forum and also the various specialised high end guitar and guitar amp forums.

Best way to connect a G-Force to a triaxis:

Take the G-Force.
Photograph it.
Wrap in bubblewrap and put in box.
Put photo on E-Bay.
Sell G-Force.
Mail G-Force to new owner.
Buy Eventide.

Simples cool.gif

(Only joking - G-force is a nice processor smile.gif . Just couldn't resist.)

Thanks Muris for the clarification .. will help a lot when I get the gear.

Yep, I have googled and have emailed almost 10 of them.. There are actually not many listings in ebay.. only 2 as of today. All the listings in craiglist only dealt locally and on cash.. sad.gif

I have posted in various forums and one I am dealing now is this one: http://img406.imageshack.us/img406/6301/me...eflightcase.jpg

only the triaxis, 2:90's already sold as he says.. looking for UKP 900... v2 with phat mode. He is from the UK.

negotiating...

This is the site.. btw, if anyone has any experience on this site, let me know..

http://www.hugeracksinc.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=60442

I hope its genuine.. I see that guy has a lot of posts on the triaxis on the same forum.

Okay, looks like the deal is going to be final.. just a few questions and a final nod...

V2 5800 serial so most probably it has PHAT mode, JJ tubes, volume knob scratchy?, says everything is working fine. USD 1050. US version so I will need a converter or jsut change the power supply myself.

What should I need to ask or know about the unit?

Okay.. got confirmation that he cleaned up the volume knob and no longer scratchy.. so its in really good condition as far as I have understood between our conversations.

Going to buy it today/tomorrow... smile.gif

Any last things I need to be aware of? I hope the 100% positive feedback is not fraud or something on ebay. I am risking this as its my first purchase on ebay. smile.gif

Thanks Muris!

100% feedback is great
tho he has had only 30 deals so far,
some people would buy from him without thinking, some wouldn't...
Anyway, use PayPal just in case, you never know what might happen!
