Things have changed quite a bit since you received your invite.
As per the official forums, they made it through the AX8 waitlist for headphone orders today and are on to 4/23 tomorrow. I’m 4/26, can’t wait!
Me too. Time to start getting my scratch together!
I just placed my order for a FM3+FC6+EV-2! I got on the waitlist 4/23/19 @ 2:26pm.
I got my invite for headphones version today. I had received invite for non-headphone version a few weeks ago but wasn’t interested.
I ordered 6/23/19 and received it yesterday.
It was worth the wait. I just went through 20 presets and couldn't believe how incredible it sounds.
What time on the 23rd did you get on, if I may ask?
10:27 AM PST
Ooh, I’m like three hours behind you.
i guess no invites today. No FM3 for you!
Is anyone looking forward to Monday?
I just got my invite on Friday & ordered last night. They sent me tracking today & I should have mine in a few days.
Very eXciting times!!!!
PS - I love the small form factor & the Larry Mitchel Live Facebook jam last week sounded amazing on the FM3. Pete’s presents & demo is just jaw dropping too!
I expect to get an invite shortly...I’m on the fence. I like the form factor but I’m a bit nervous about loss in functionality or performance. I never use large patches but I like reverb. Anyone else have those thoughts?
Yeah, I’ve had similar thoughts. I keep going back and forth, but I think I’m settling on keeping my Axe3 and passing on the FM3.
I’m thinking about using the money to pick up an fc12 or another fc6 instead.
If you are big into Reverb and it is an essential part of your signal chain then I could see passing or considering a great Reverb unit in the loop (Strymon Big Sky?).
I think most people who own the III see the FM3 as a much easier way to get their core tones out to a gig.
That is how I view it along with how to get III tones on the cheap. I'll forgo high resolution Reverb for that choice.
There is the reverb, but there are also two other differences that weighed my decision more:
1 amp block
I like toggling between two amps, and there is still an annoying gap when switching channels in a single amp block.
Sometimes I need a lot more than what the FM3 has.
I figure the FM3 would probably cover about 80% of what I need, but the Axe3 will cover 100%. And I already have it.
Give it a shot... You can run a lot of FX with channels and scenes. The FM3's with the headphone jack will be selling for $$$ on reverb too
Yeah I just got my invite and ordered it.
I'm 99% sure I'll be just fine with it for power. I don't really gig and don't have any other rack gear, so finding a physical location for it kind of sucked too. Also, if the fan is quieter that would be a plus.
Also...Axe 3 are backordered now so I should be able to get just about what I paid for out of the Axe 3 off Reverb.
Just got my invite for the FM w/headphone. Woohoo, with a little bit of good fortune it could be here for the weekend.
Awesome! What time did you get in on the waitlist?
