    Any EBMM owners?

    I have an EBMM Cutlass HSS and a Fender Stratocaster 40th Anniv. model. They are different, but mostly because I put Kinman Woodstocks into the Strat. The single-coils on the Cutlass are good. They respond well in every application I've put them through, in the past year and a half. No...

    Any EBMM owners?

    Brought in a Cutlass HSS about a year and a half ago. It's become my number one player in my current band. https://www.music-man.com/bfr/december-2018

    Axe-Fx III Mark II Review from Mixdown Magazine

    "However, it’s the pure tonal delight of the Axe-FX III Mark II that really takes the cake here. The accuracy of each amplifier model is absolutely astounding, and makes it truly difficult to discern whether or not you’re even modelling in the first place. The dynamic response offered by the...

    Best FRFR for the money

    I ran a pair of QSC K10s for two years before switching to Atomic CLRs. The K10s sounded better than the K12s with the Axe-FX. Both the K10s and the K12s have a hyped-up low-frequency response, even with the onboard DSP set to "Flat." After some measurements with an Earthworks calibration...

    OK, What's The Real Answer When It Comes To Cables?

    For guitar cables, the only electrical factor that really matters is capacitance, usually measured in picofarads per foot (pf/ft). The lower the capacitance, the less effect the cable will have on your guitar tone. http://www.shootoutguitarcables.com/guitar-cables-explained/capacitance-chart.html

    50 watts vs 1000 watts

    This is a very old topic on the Fractal Audio forum, but I think it's good to revisit it for review. If you're used to 100W of tube power into a 16-ohm cab, then you should probably consider a SS amp that can deliver 500W-600W (bridged) - or more - into 8 ohms. The reasons for this are...
