Ok, here are the first clips I have for the TC-15. I used a switcher that let
me plug into both channels at the same time and swtich between them.
But I spent most of my time in the EF-86 channel with the volume at about
1 o'clock.

The cab was a Bluesbreaker 2x12 with tone tubby alnicos. It was double
miced with an SM-57 and a condenser. THe guitar is my les paul custom.

I find that the amp has two very different channels. Once sweeter and one
tougher. Many of us know and love the Trinity 15. The trinity 15 channel
on the amp is just like that. Although, the use of Trinity transformers does
affect the tone. Just a little more compression and grind that the standard trannys.

EDIT: Added sample 15 reference Clip: http://www.trinityamps.com/ForumGallery ... usion2.mp3

The EF-86 channel brings a new world of crunch and munch. That channel
has quite a bit of meaty midrange gain but, when you roll back the
volume, it cleans up super well. It sounds really nice like that and most of
the clean parts on the clips are done that way. The first clean section on
TC_15_1.mp3 clip, where the guitar is in the middle position, almost
sounds like a tele! I'll have to try a strat there and see if we have
quackage as well. When you turn up the guitar you get nice rhythm
crunch AND creamy leads depending on guitar settings. See the beginning
of clip 2 for the cream.

Good job coco.

The clips are pretty much all the EF86 channel. The tone swtich was on the second last notch' it's the second most trebley notch on the tone control. The volume was a little more than half way up. That was enough to get the channel to break up with the les paul.

The more you turn up the master the more it starts to sing. I also find the cut control instrumental in fine tuning the sound of the amp.

PS. In the next clip I will contrast the two channels.

Is that tube rattle I hear ?

Close to the end after you really cranked the volume and you play the
palm muted power chord and again after you arpeggio the chord right
after that.

Hi littlejac and thanks. It's funny what happens when one simply trys to please oneself.

Clearly I was just riffing out but I suspect that was my Les Paul Custom on that track. The poor thing has Wolfetone Marshall head pickups (aggressive PAF tone). Only the lead track was TC-15.

I hear some of what I LOVED in the Bangkok clips in this one....but the tone is more raw in this one and more refined in the BK clips.
