Does anyone else remember Decimax?

Recommended Posts

For some reason this just came into my head the other day.

I vaguely remember reading an article in Guitarist (I think) with a picture of a big stack that looked identicle to Trace Elliot but with red lights on the amp instead of green.

I think they were a digital offshoot of Trace.

Does anyone have any information on them?

I'm not looking to buy one, just curious to find out more about them and why they disappeared as i don't remember ever seeing them in a guitar shop.

Ditto from me but I'm not sure about the TE connection; wouldn't dispute it though, as this was around the time TE were diversifying. Time to delve into the 'Bassist' box... I may be gone some time! :)

I sad one at a show someewhere I recall.

If I remember rightly it was something that was either programable or didnt have conventional knobs and switches.

I got the impression it was either looking to be a much more modern amp than TE or it was designed and shown by an ex TE person and got nowhere because of lack of interest

I remember trying one of their rigs out at a music show years ago and it was one of the best sounding rigs ever, had a digital graphic and was designed by an ex Trace engineer. If anyone does have one or any more info do get in touch, there's nothing on the net!

Decimax... Think they were related to Carlsbro some way weren't they? Definitely Guitarist vintage. I remember the ad with the chap with the 6 string Overwater strapped up high and beige turtleneck tucked into his jeans...

Think that was their Delta range. Two heads ( 300 or 600 watt) with blue front panels and also in combo + extension cab form. Sounded quite nice as I remember, designed to take on Trace in the late 80’s but unfortunately about the same weight 😄

I’ve got one. It’s a D600. I think it’s 600 a side. Beast of an amp and weighs a ton. I’m getting it serviced to sell on as I don’t use it. I’m a guitarist and it was used in my studio room for bass players to use. Never seen another so obviously really rare.👍
