The TriAx pickups sound great as a stand alone. Any electronics the TriAx is the easiest way to get a great plugged. In sound with a minimum amount of hassle and the. Least amount of potential feedback during performance! Bill Sutherland / Tone Specialist AddictedToToneInc. The Tri-Ax 2 comes with a cable-to-end-pin jack.

Connection for use when installing in an acoustic guitar. In active mode the Tri-Ax 2 delivers a full, robust signal that is.

Capable of being plugged directly into an amp or mixing console. The triaxial design outperforms the other. Magnetic-only pickups on the market. The Most Advanced And Intelligent Design. The TRI-AX2 design employs L. Which senses both the string and body vibrations. It is important to understand that the TriAx is NOT. The TriAx is a FREQUENCY MODIFIED version. Of the M1/M80 formulated to work specifically with.

What is a Tri-Axial Dynamic Body Sensor. And how Does it work? The hum-canceling coil of the Tri-AX 2 is suspended under the main coil. By a tuned support that responds in three dimensions.

To the vibrations of the guitar. This additional body response brings the guitars sound to life with a. Richness and complexity far beyond that of other sound hole pickups. The Tr-Ax 2 is designed to capture the not only the string vibration energy.

But also the wood energy produced by the vibration of the guitars top. It lets your guitar sound like your guitar when it is plugged in! Longitudinal, transverse and planar waves.

A true testament to the accuracy of the Tri-Axial Dynamic Body. Sensor is that it will work on a nylon string guitar! NOTE: Most Nylon string guitars DO NOT have a sound hole large enough to. Baggs / Sunrise vs TRI-AX 2.

This is not really a versus situation. All three are great pickups! The TRI-AX 2 has a lot of technological, frequency. And is a frequency compensated tweaked. Baggs that has been developed with.

More of a nod towards use with the Takamine CoolTube preamp. More Information you may find interesting.

If you are currently using a guitar equipped the Takamine Palathetic. You are referencing string energy and the wood vibration of your. Guitars top which is a great tone but still prone to low end feedback. You are hearing only the energy of the string directly translated.

Into the saddle which is very thin and still prone to low end feedback. Gives you a much truer audio snapshot. Of what your guitar sounds like acoustically when it is plugged in.

It is as if you are bi-amping the guitar! Think of it this way: The. TRI-AX 2 will be used to reference. Are using will be capture the upper mid-range and treble.

Of an acoustic guitar; it is far too complex. This is why musicians go crazy trying to find. It takes at minimum TWO separate elements to reference the.

Whole spectrum of sound produced by an acoustic guitar, one element. To capture the string energy and another to gather the wood energy. Believe me I know, I have tried everything and this is the best. Way I have found to achieve a killer realistic acoustic guitar tone! Using the TriAx in this manner is an excellent way of adding. LOW and LOW MID frequencies to the guitars plugged in tonality. Because it focuses primarily on string vibration and references. The up and down movement of the guitars top in an area.

The TriAx is rated for an 116db before feedback. This makes it the perfect tool for capturing the lower. Spectrum of signal without being prone to feedback. A snow mobile or motorcycle engine is usually around 100db.

Physical pain begins around 125db. The TriAx also does a fantastic job of reproducing harmonics.

Since it is getting the chime tones directly from their source. Another interesting auditory event occurs since the strings are. Being referenced at two different places in their motion (phase). There is a slight time difference, very slight just a few milliseconds. But enough to make it more exciting to the human ear as it adds a. Decided articulation in the realness of the texture of the guitars sound. Research the Haas Effect / The Principle of First Arrival to understand this little better.

Where is the B String pole piece? There is not an adjustable B string pole installed in the TriAx 2. The Ti Ax 2 comes with this way because of the way the B-string interacts with the magnets inductive field. The mass and tension of the B string is viewed by the magnetic field of the Tri Ax 2 more predominantly than the other strings.

TriAx 2 users sometimes change to a more magnetically reactive set of strings that incorporate. NICKEL wound E, A D, G strings this brings the wound string's output up considerably. Most feel the NICKEL wound string has a more toneful quality when plugged in. Though acoustically less output is generated due to the decreased string tension. Most guitarists continue to use their favorite brand and set of tried and true of acoustic guitar strings which are most often wound with bronze.

The bronze alloy is not interactive with the Tri Ax 2s magnetic field and is essentially invisible to it. Only the core wire of the wound string is reactive to the magnetic field and is viewed by it. The bronze alloy extrusions used for the wrap wire on the wound strings. There might be a fat low E string vibrating away acoustically. Because of this phenomenon the Tri Ax 2s magnetic field senses the B string more strongly than all the other strings.

The TriAx 2 comes with its pole pieces set up with a good normal balance from Takamine. Personal attributes of an individuals playing style may influence a need to adjust the pole pieces. Other unusual hard to find and custom made items!

Here are some of the most Frequently Asked Questions. I have received regarding the TRI-AX 2. What is the difference between the.

TriAx and the TriAx 2? The TriAx 2 is a refinement of the first TriAx. Was tailored for the CTP-1 preamp. In 2004 there have been.

Its frequency response both in the High and Low frequencies are extended. The TriAx 2 has a quicker transient response and is quieter.

The TriAx 2 also has a battery check feature too which is nice, the original TriAx did not have that. When using the TriAx 2 in PASSIVE mode it is not necessary to have a battery installed. An installed battery will not be drained in PASSIVE mode. NOTE: The volume control on the TriAx will work only in active mode.

What is that button next to the Low E pole piece for? When I press it Green lights come on.. It is a battery check function. The soundhole is a little smaller than normal. Needs a 3 1/2 opening to slip into without touching the sides of the soundhole.

I once put a TriAx into a Takamine TC132 Classical which has a smaller sound hole. We had to slightly notch out the soundhole for the TriAx clamping screws but not much. Sometimes it is easiest to just take the mounting platform of the TriAx off before you place it in the guitar, this gives you a lot more "clearance" but does make putting the bottom clamp back on a bit difficult - but it can be done.

Question: I will be installing the. In a Takamine TAN15C by plugging into the CTP-2 AUX input. Answer: No, the TriAx is separate from those controls, only the AUX volume will affect the TriAx.

Answer: An easy way to start is set all of your controls on your amp and guitar "flat" - do not boost or cut any frequencies. Now on your Takamine preamp slide the bass EQ slider all the way down, leaving only the mid and treble frequencies at the "0" mid point.

Now use your TriAx to supply the low end, keep turning it up until the "low-end" is equal in volume to the mid and treble frequencies. If you are experimenting with two separate channels you can now begin to exaggerate the "bi-amping" effect by adjusting the channel controls of your amp or p.

To get the best clarity. Keep in mind you are not trying to make one element do all the work but are tweaking them separately within their own strength: Magnetic field (TriAx) for low mids and bass response, transducer (palathetic) for upper mids and treble. You can get a lot more volume and clarity this way. Question: W hich is the best TriAx mode to combine with the Cooltube - Passive or Active? Which gives the best results?

The active setting is several dB hotter and would produce too much gain and create distortion. Try it both ways - trust your ears. "If it sounds good, it is good". Question: When operating the TriAx together with the CTP-2 what gives the best sound quality?

Answer: After much experimentation I have decided the sonically superior way to run this type of "two part" system is to keep the elements separate. You can try this pretty easily as I send the TriAx with a cable that allows it to be used completely on its own. Install the TriAx in your guitar but leave the cable hanging out of the soundhole so you can plug a cable into it. A piece of painters tape to hold the cable in place on the surface of the guitars top makes things a little "safer". Now plug the TriAx into your P.

Or another acoustic amp channel. Use the TriAx to capture the low mid and bass frequencies of your instrument and use the palathetic to capture the high mids and treble. By using two separate channels you can really EQ these elements to their best result.

Two channels also allow an artist to do some interesting stereo imaging or effect processing. I do not run stereo live but I do mix my mag field and transducer pickups a little to the left and right when I record in the studio, it is much more exciting to the ear. In theory anything you can solder an RCA plug on and plug in will work - mic, keyboard, bass guitar, C. BUT since the ohmage and resistance of different pickups may not match what is required by the system there would be the risk of a very bad hum and or distortion being present.

I would use the TriAx - it sounds great and is designed for the CTP-2. If it sounds good it is good!

Question : W hen using the TriAx in conjunction with the CTP-1/2/3 and the batteries go dead in the preamp will the TriAx still work via the Aux control? Answer : No, but I would not worry about the batteries suddenly going "dead" in the middle of a song or even the middle of a set, the system gives you plenty time to replace batteries before it stops functioning.

When we tested this situation we performed our experiment using a CD player playing a music sampler disc through the AUX input of the CTP-2 preamp. We noticed a subtle difference in the volume of the system when the batteries reached about 1.25 volts each.

This slight reduction in volume would probably not have been noticed in a "real life" situation but since we were measuring things electronically we did "catch" it. The system did continue to work quite tonefully for nearly 2 1/2 hours after this point and stopped producing sound about 15 minutes after the "battery" indicator light had come on. The batteries measured 1.12 each volts at this point. Question: Hi, I currently own a Takamine TAN15c and have installed an L R Baggs made Triax.

Is the Triax the same as the M1 or is it the same as the M80? If the M80 is different would it be possible to match it with the Takamine Cooltube Preamp the same as the Triax? Answer: The Triax is similar to the M1 Passive, but not exactly the same.

Too much body resonance will produce feedback at louder volumes. Because of the M80s Passive side, it can be used with the CoolTube preamp with no issues. Answer: The TriAx is very similar to the Sunrise in its magnetic structure, almost identical in fact.

The TriAx on the other hand references the top movement enough to make it a valid choice on a nylon string instrument especially if one were to be using the CTP-2 preamp. As the "math" of the TriAx and Sunrise are nearly identical and the fact that the TriAx references the movement of the guitars top and the Sunrise does not, I have to officially tip my hat to the TriAx as being the tonefully superior unit. A friend of mine had me install a Sunrise (I used to sell them) in his guitar several years ago and after a couple of years of playing gigs with it he somehow managed to lose it.

He called the next day to report that at his band rehearsal the previous evening his band mates kept remarking about how much better his guitar sounded. Question: What is the purpose of having no pole piece in the B string location and a deeply-seated pole piece in the high E position, and extra pole pieces of various sizes? The "B" is recessed farthest because its tension and pitch produces much more volume than do the other strings. The high "E" is set a little lower as well (not quite as low as the "B") because of the same effect. Question: I really liked your information about how these pickups work best - a blend as in understanding- mic + mag.

I love the Sunrise and have used them for years preceding the TriAx. The TriAx is very comparable to the Sunrise in terms of its tonality and sonic capabilities.

I believe their both rated for 116db before feedback - a snow mobile or motorcycle engine is usually around 100db, physical pain begins around 125db.. More db before feedback means more tone and tone is what it is all about! I wonder if I can ask a technical question of you. One is stereo, the other mono?

Answer : The TRS ("Stereo") jack/plugs are a constant source of confusion because they can be wired for a variety of different purposes. When you plug in, the barrel of the cables 1/4" male phono jack "grounds out the "RING" connector and completes the "POSITIVE/HOT" side of the battery - pretty clever! It is best to unplug your guitar when not in use if it is plugged in the battery is activated..

We once did a cool modification for a fellow that employed a mercury style switch on the battery connection - the battery would come on automatically when he held the guitar in the playing position, kind of weird but he liked it.. Question: Is it hard to switch from the CTP-1 to the CTP-2 preamp?

Answer: It is very easy to switch preamps, it requires no soldering. Question: On the CTP-1 / CTP-2 do the batteries last longer if the Tube is turned down or off? The circuit is still busy keeping the tube warmed up and performance ready.

Question: What is the difference between a CTP-1 and a CTP-1R? Answer: There was never really a CTP-1R preamp BUT there was a CTP-1 Battery Replacement tray CTP-1R.

The more robust battery tray was one of the first improvements manifested in the CTP-2 preamp. Question : I have CTP-1 and on the back there are two switches.

Do you know what these do? Answer : The PWR (Power) switch allows one to keep the power on so the tube is continuously warmed up and always ready for performance - you will go through batteries a lot with this switched on. You probably don't want to do this until you are using the Takamine DI+ to provide phantom power to your CTP-1 unit. The "High" switch gives you more gain. The CTP-2 has a much faster warm up period (well under a minute) and features a switch marked Artist to keep the tube performance ready at all times.

This is really a great concert feature that allows guitarists to change instruments quickly during a live performance on stage where seconds tend to feel like hour! You probably do not need it on at home. Question : Will (high quality) rechargeable AA batteries work as efficiently as normal AA batteries in the CTP-1/CTP-2? Question : Can I swap tubes in the CTP-2? Answer : Yes, y ou are able to swap tubes.

Question: How long does the 12Au7 tube last before it needs to be replaced in the CTP-2 preamp? Can I change to NOS tube when the tube is blown? Answer: How long does the 12Au7 last? The voltage to the tube is nowhere near that of a guitar amplifier.

I would say in your lifetime you will never have to change the tube. Can you change to NOS tube, when the tube is blown Yes. Question: I have a Takamine EG523SC with TK4NT. What alternative do you recommend as the TK4NT is no longer available? Answer: There is no easy solution for you.

The TK4NT is a different size than the CTP-2 and all of the other current Takamine preamps. If you just want to upgrade into a better sound you would have to first change the mounting bracket that is in your guitar, the mounting bracket that you currently have will not fit. The correct mounting bracket is a different size and shape so you would have to cut a new opening for it. Perhaps now is a good time to upgrade guitars!

Question: You mentioned about an RCA adapter needed for plug upgrades from TP4T and TK40 model preamps how come that is needed? These 3.5mm plugs look like a miniature version of your 1/4 jack that you use to plug your guitar into an amp.

Since the CTP-2 requires an RCA style plug like you would use to plug up a VCR or DVD player you have to replace the 3.5 mm style jack. It is a very simple modification to do, you simply cut the old style 3.5mm plug off and solder on the RCA style jack. Ultimately it is just a different style plug, the 3.5mm jacks were kind of delicate and prone to shorting out, the RCA jacks are much more sturdy. The main reason the 3.5mm plug was used on the more economical guitar models is a manufacturing detail: they could be soldered together and then passed through the top of the guitar with no additional work making them easier and faster to use, thereby lowering the cost of each unit.

Just look inside you guitars sound hole at the back of the preamp and you can see which style you have. Question: How long does the 12Au7 in the CTP-2 preamp last? Answer: The voltage to the tube is not anywhere near what an amplifiers would be, I would say in your lifetime you would probably never have to change the tube. Question: Is the tube in the CTP-2 replaceable? Question: Does the CTP-2 unit you sell use the same electronic contacts as the factory designed pre-amp? Answer: The CTP-2 is a Takamine factory designed preamp Takamine uses the same mounting bracket on all of its guitars making it possible to interchange them and upgrade them quite easily. The CTP-2 preamp has a 3.5 output and two RCA style inputs for pickups. All of Takamine preamps use the same 3.5 output. Question: I think there is something wrong with my preamps cables how can I check the cable when its inside the guitar? Answer: The next most common problem is the 3.5 mm output plug from the preamp. These plugs have no outer protection so it is easy to short them out. Try this: Remove the preamp from its holder and place it on top of your guitar put a cloth under it so it does not scratch the guitars surface. Now turn the preamp up and gently move the input and output jacks from side to side, you should be able to deduce the offending component pretty easily. Have you or someone else ever removed your existing preamp? A large portion of the time acoustic guitar "preamp" problems are a result of the end pin jack going bad.

Question: I got my CTP 2 yesterday. I installed it on my guitar and it works fine when I plug it into my amp. There is one problem however.

The "oper" green light stays on even when it is plugged out which means that my battery will run out if I don't remove the battery pack after each time I plug in. It also means that I won't be able to use the tuner every time that I want because the battery pack will be plugged out if I don't use my jack. Do you think that the unit may be a dud? Please get back to me as soon as you can. Answer: Thank you for contacting me quickly - there is no cause for alarm..

There is a switch on the back of the CTP-2 called the "Artist Switch" when it is engaged it keeps the CTP-2 on and warmed up constantly. In concert this is a benefit because the guitar is ready to go at all times.

You do not want to use this feature until you get the Takamine DI box which powers the CTP-2 via the guitar cable. Question: Where is the Artist switch? Answer: The Artist Switch is located above the RED RCA jack on the BACK of the CTP-2. It is a simple "press and release" button made of black plastic.

Question: I have a G series Takamine - do I need to upgrade my whole inner cable, too? You said I need to change to a RCA male jack, but I don't know what it is. Answer: You do not have to change the whole inner cable, just the connectors on it.

Currently your system has 2 mini male jacks they need to be changed to 1 RCA male plug. Question: I currently have a CT-4B II pre amp and I would like to change to the CTP-2 - what modifications are needed to do so? The cool tube has three connections. I do not understand help! Answer: You would not have to modify anything.

The CTP-2 has two RCA jacks: 1 RED and 1 YELLOW. The 3.5 mm output is where you plug in your guitar jack. Answer: There is enough wire to leave the pickups in place. Usually they are wrapped together and held in one spot so you will want to "untie" the bundle so to speak. Put a little cosmetic mirror in the sound hole and look around - you will see it. Question: I have a CTP-1 that uses a lot of batteries, there is no Artist Switch to turn off, what is going on? 1 The CTP-1 was noted to go through batteries pretty quick - usually 5 -6 hours. This was one of the first revisions made with the CTP-2 - longer battery life. Later revisions also included faster warm-up time and the addition of an Artist Switch.

2 Your end pin jack may be wired incorrectly or be "damaged" in such a way that the preamp/batteries are on even though the guitar is un-plugged, which normally turns the system off. 3 If nothing is technically wrong with your system you could upgrade to the 4-pin jack and start using the Takamine Acoustic DI box (which sounds great) it will power the CTP-1 externally so you do not have to use batteries. 4 On some of the early CTP-1 preamps the tuner must be turned off manually after activating, leaving the tuner on for an extended period of time will drain the batteries.

Question: Thanks for the pictures on how to wire the RCA solder. In the third pic it shows the two wires and the RCA male plug. Do you have to cut the ends off those two wires and strip them to the bare wire before you solder them to the RCA plug, or do you just solder them as they are? Is there a specific spot each of those wires needs to go to inside the RCA plug, or do you just solder them both to the RCA soldering port in whatever position or order? Answer: Each of the cables have 2 wires inside 1 hot, 1 ground.

You cut the old ends off and then strip the wires to expose the two wires. The 2 hot wires will be wired together going to the "tip" of the RCA jack. The 2 ground wires are combined and are soldered to the "ground" of the RCA jack. Should take about 7 - 10 minutes, pretty easy.

Question: Does the CTP-2 have to be plugged into an amp to enjoy the sound differences? Answer: Yes, you must be playing through an amplifier or P. To realize the sound quality of the CTP-2. Question: If I wanted to fit this into a non Takamine guitar.

What would I need to make this work? Answer: You MUST have a Takamine mounting chassis, without it your only other chance for installation is duct tape and I do not recommend that. These are not normally available as a separate item, sometimes due to a badly damaged Takamine guitar we are able to salvage its mounting chassis and offer it as an up-grade to non-Takamine users. This chassis will NOT accept other brands of electronic preamps; it is for Takamine guitar electronics only.

Question : The tubes in my guitar amplifier get very hot, wont the Cool Tube heat up my guitar and damage it? The techs at Takamine named the Cool Tube very appropriately it operates at just 3 volts and warms only about 2 degrees over room temperature; chances are your body temperature will heat your guitar up more than the CTP-2. The only thing that will get hot is your tone! - and maybe your love-life!

Question : What kind of tube is in the CTP-2? Question : I have been told that the first two numbers of my Takamine guitars serial number reflect the year it was made. Answer: The first 2 digits of the serial number is the year the guitar was manufactured.

1998 = 98, 2006 = 06 2011 = 11 etc. Question : How do I wire the 3.5mm output jack of the preamp? Answer: You need to use 3 wires: 1 for the TIP connection (hot) 1 for the RING (activates the battery in the preamp) 1 for the GROUND. You need to use a shielded cable.

If you use a 2 wire connection your battery will be on all of the time, even when you are unplugged from the guitar. Question : I have a Takamine that is 15 years old and I installed the CTP-2 cool tube preamp. This mic uses battery, will the 4-pin upgrade jack also supply power to the mic?
