    Just a crazy idea, but I know there are a fair number of users around the area. Any interest in getting together and listening to/ learning about each others rigs? I'm thinking it maybe could be a couple rooms at a rehearsal space that had decent PA's already set up. Different amp / guitar cabs could be brought and heard as well. I've got a VHT 2/90/2 and a Mojave 2X12 w/ EV12L's wired in stereo that I could supply. I'd be happy to contribute time and money just to meet some of the other Axe folks and maybe learn more about tweaking the Axe to my taste as well as hearing others' tones. Whatcha think?

    What a cool idea! Hopefully internet access would be around so you guys can upload some new presets too.

    What would be interesting is that Tone Merchants - a great store btw - has at least 5 of the amps directly modeled in the AxeFx - so you could play the Axe and then right next to it you could play the real thing. THAT is worth doing. And they have a P.A. so you could run FRFR or power amp/cab with the Axe. I do film/video production for a living. I would volunteer taping/editing and posting video on line if this happens.

    Ive been sort of planning this for a while. I was planning on doing this when I have the new Atomic Axe Fx cab. Im constantly in contact with Tom king (atomic/fractal) and Im sure if there was going to be a great turn out maybe he and cliff would come down.

    We talked about this before, I think Noel from Tone Merchants may have been interested in hosting. I'd be down, even though I no longer have my Axe Fx.

    Fusionbear , Thanks for the offer. Let's see what happens.

    Rob, Could be very cool to do it at Tone Merchants. Having the Atomic stuff there for comparison would be great as well.

    This also would be beneficial for anyone on the fence about the Axe. They could hear multiple patches through multiple rigs. Video and record all of it. I think there could be a lot of interest. :AOK

    I spoke with Tom King today and our basic plan is when the Axe Fx cabs are ready, we will have this event at Tone merchants. I might be lining up a concert for that night, hopfully a high profile artist. It will probably happen in about 2 months. i will keep everyone updated
