Had an amazing show over the weekend at the House of Blues Houston. I play in an Ozzy Osbourne tribute band called OZZ and this was our 3rd gig there in the last year but the first with my Fractal gear. The last 2 shows there I've run 2 5153 halfstacks in stereo with a G-System. This time around I ran direct using the AX8 and ran Out 2 to a Matrix power amp and my EVH 4x12 cab for a little amp/ cab feel onstage. You can see the green screen of my Axe-Fx XL glowing in the rack case on top of my 4x12 cab as my backup just in case of an emergency. The AX8 sounded great. I got lots of compliments on my sound. Several of my fellow EVH 5153 friends and users who are tube amp purist we're blown away when I told them I was running direct to FOH with the AX8. They are now Fractal believers. I had pro video being shot from the soundbooth with a direct feed from board into the camera. I'll post some once I get it. In the mean time here is some cell phone video of the opening song from up in the balcony so you can check out how the AX8 sounded and a few pics from the show. Thank you FAS for an amazing unit

I think I followed you on YouTube last week. Sounded great on those videos! I've got an AX-8 coming in this week so I'll try my hand at your tones :D

As always, outstanding tone and playing and the band flat out rocks!
You are one of those guys who constantly has me thinking to move back to the modelling setup for live.

Congrats on a job well done!

haha wow your singer sounds pretty close. Awesome tone too. My AX8 should be here Wednesday, pretty excited.

Not really a metal guy anymore but Ozzy has a soft spot in my heart.. Rhoads is why I started playing.
