    So, I like the AX8 and both these guys. Paired well with my first coffee of the day

    Cool. He appears to be a pretty nice guy. Great interview.

    Cool video. I have zero desire right now to move fully to modeling, but I'm enjoying my little tube amps and HX Stomp a lot. I also don't miss my old 50-100w heads one bit.

    Thanks for sharing.

    I have had my AX8 for just about 2 years. I have a classic Marshall and a classic Fender. All I want to do is play the AX8 more.

    Always enjoy when artists walk through their rig usage, especially on the digital side!

    But he doesn't give any details useful. Like what playback system he used when adjusting tones, if changes needed from stage to stage (experiences), PA's role on stage tone...

    Unless your playing on the very same stages and through the same Pa’s he is, how would that be useful information ?

    That's an odd question, I'll explain differently.

    Many people not as experienced as he is are gig'ing with systems same or similar to his. We often notice questions or comments on stage use on this forum. So though might be getting technical, I'm sure he could have shared valuable info/tips for such musicians.

    Ever since I got my AX8 and CLR I don't have to worry anymore about my sound.
    Just like Larry said, its about consistency. My rig sounds the same from gig to gig.
    I also use Marshall type amp (Dirty Shirley) as my main sound.
    From clean to crunch using the guitar volume knob then a boost/drive if more is needed.
    The FX are stellar...everything I need in a compact, sturdy rig that takes 5 minutes to setup/tear down.

    Larry has talked about his rig before on Fractals forum.
    He does lots of fly dates and doesn't travel with a monitor.
    He relies on the venues stage monitors.
    I'm sure he may need to have the eq tweaked on his monitor from time to time, but it's probably as easy as having it set to flat.
    I've played my AX8 thru various monitors, and while the CLR is the best it still sounds great via less expensive floor monitors that lots of clubs use.

    His approach seems to fly in the face of advice given often on this forum.:anon

    I have talked with him a few times when he owned a little guitar shop in Chandler AZ.

    Love his tones and playing. Outstanding. And, yeah, the Plexi model is the freakin bomb!! Love it! My "go to" model when I need a great feeling, hard-rockin sound. And it cleans up real nice too.

    No AITR, no guitar cab, modeller to FOH and stage monitors to listen. Some folks here shoot this method down pretty frequently.

    Most folks here aren't asking "how can I maximize my profit margin on gigs that I have to fly to and for which I'm not reimbursed for cartage."

    Right, so Larry Mitchell would compromise his tone for profit huh? Very nice of you to speak for him.
