    Announcing Axe-Fx III Mark II TURBO

    Yes. I see. I would have thought they would have wanted to advertise it a little more. I thought the Turbo name would look good on the splash screen. I'm sure that would not be hard to code.

    Let the guy do what he does best. He has always looked out for us and provided everything he could and then some for free. I have no complaints. I'll take what I can get. If I'm not satisfied with my unit, I'll gladly buy the updated model that satisfies me.

    AITR

    You can only do what you can do. And I'm fine with the option you provided. In the next 6 years, when I retire, I plan to go on the road permanently. Therefore, a rack unit like I have now will not work. I'll go to a floor model type. Who knows what will be available then.

    Ok. So set me straight. Are those Marshall's version of a Celestion V30? I had both those cabs and I could have sworn they were real Celestion V30's in both. I checked the Marshall link and it shows something different. They change the specs since I owned my cabs?

    Hard to tone match an amp when you don't own it. Don't want to even try a match from a mp3. Testing to see if the model sounds the same as the real thing.
