    I recently got an AXE-FX ULTRA after months of debate. It's pretty cool.
    Seems like it may be the Ultimate Cover Gig Rig, for me. We'll see.

    Lots of requests for a clip.

    Disclaimer:
    Zoom Q3 video cam. No fancy recording, here. No direct sounds. Cab sims off. Power amp sims on. I've heard a lot of great clips of the Axe-Fx in the past. I DIALED IN MY SOUNDS. I didn't try to give you a broad example of the things it can do, but rather what it does FOR ME.
    The gain stuff sounds pretty similar to each other on the video. It doesn't in the room.

    Gear details in the video.
    Just some chords and stuff, no substance in the playing, blah,blah,blah..

    Damn. I need to stay away from these forums.
    I had just made up my mind to stick with my GSP1101 at least until Digitech puts a new one out and now I'm scanning Ebay and pricing used Axe FX Ultras.
    I have a ton of unused gear I'm going to sell and it should net me enough to get one.

    I liked every tone you got in that vid. A lot.

    Thanks! I avoided the Axe until last month. I just figured I wouldn't like it. It was so easy to get sounds dialed in that I like. And the fx are limitless...
    Great unit!
    Not selling my Marsha, SLO, XTC, or Duende anytime soon. But this will make a whole new gigging rig, that'll be perfect for most gigs.

    Keeping my Duende, too! But I gig and record the Ultra...and have for two years now.

    I am up for the Ax2, but need to flip the Ultra to complete the bill. Directed towards lurkers: In the Emporium. On sale. Jes sayin...

    Sounds great! I'm coming over with a QSC K10.
    Then we can get my sounds for when I borrow it for sessions. I'll get my own eventually. :)



    (embeded for you)
