    I just scored the final piece of my "Rack of Doom" ™ : The Mesa/Boogie Strategy 500. Gaze upon it's heinous glory, and tremble!

    oh... my... god

    :eek: :eek: :eek:

    What is that... 1200 all tube watts??? That would register (highly) on the Richter Scale!

    I would hate to be in your band, man. :smug:

    :eek: *jaw drops* :eek:

    Wow. I'm speechless.

    Do you use those together? When would you need that much power? CA has enough trouble with earthquakes, do you really need to add to that problem? :p

    I bet if you cranked that up, I could hear it at my house. :D

  6. the preamp(s) (i wouldn't doubt he has more than just one wired up at a time looking at that mesa set up ;) ) are probably stuffed in another seperate rack...that rack pictured is STUFFED!!

    For the record, that's 900 tube watts in there. 36 6l6's, 11 12ax7's, and roughly 250 pounds. I guess for mere mortals the cost to retube the whole thing would be about $1200, but I've got friends in high places so I can get some for free.

    The infamous BassTriaxis is in another rack. My next rack will hopefully be filled with a D-180, Bass 400, and Bass 400+.

    And no, I don't plan on gigging with these. I dont' have enough cabs (just this rack alone would power 12 cabs).
     
  9. You actually have my favorite piece of Mesa gear pictured there, the shock-rack. Those are the best road racks you can get without spending more than the cost of the equipment inside.

    :eek: I think I slipped a disc simply looking at the picture.
     
  14. When the lights dim, either the prison is executing someone, or basstriaxis is firing up the rig.

    Either way someone is going down.

    Now, I don't mind heavy rigs, but even *I* would b__ch after a while :smug: .

    Very impressive though, I likey :D
     
  16. Holy crap!

    I hope you keep that rig on the lowest floor of your house...if not, it might just move there on its own :eek:

    Very nice.
