Hi, MERCI for your answer. I like the AX8, because it it only one part on the Floor and ready. Now I am playing with Pete Cornish pedals, TC2290, Strymon Blue Sky, HIWATT DR103, Fane Spaeakers. So I have a very good, detailed, clear and powerful Sound. But the Equipment is heavy and sometimes I need a small Equipment. Are you sure, that the AX8 has the same powerful and detailed Sounds as the AXE FX II? MERCI.
