    What to look for when buying a used Axe-Fx II?

    The obvious signs of major damage, small scratches are ok. If you are able to plug it in somewhere before you buy it is best.

    Friedman hbe, evh 5150iii red. Cleans its one of the usa clean models. I always want to experiment more but come back to these. I also like the brit silver which sounds close to my jubilee 25watter that I have, however its collecting dust and may be sold soon. :D

    What things can an AFX do that a real amp cant?

    So true, for me its the pedals as well. When I had my analog gear I steered away from pedals. Didnt want to be stomping on a whole bunch when switching from clean to distortion for example. Now with my axe and fcb1010 its so much easier.

    What things can an AFX do that a real amp cant?

    This is the trap I fall into quite often. It drives me crazy sometimes because an hour in of practising and all I have done is change settings in my presets. There is so much flexibility and tweakable things that it can be off putting for newbies, but once that sound is dialed in, it sounds...

    I say doesnt work because the suggestions you give me, well, dont work when I try it. What I believe the problem is, is that the fcb1010 with uno chip needs a “stop box” button to be assigned to it in order for the expression pedal to work. The auto engage function will work but not without...

    Why does my Axe sounded better through headphones?

    Something else I have learned is to setup your presets loud (at gig level) then dial them back when playing at home. Also getting really good (pricey) monitors make a difference. I use crappy $20 Sony headphones and they sound great as well. Yet when I used frfr speakers they didnt sound...

    Good headphone suggestions

    On Amazon.ca the 50's are $50 more. Im on a strict budget so I will take the 40's for $150. :) I also like the fact it has 2 sets of cords, I do plan to use this when travelling as well so the straight cable would be awesome.

    Good headphone suggestions

    I looked them up and noticed on the box that the 32ohm is best suited for mp3 players and portable players. Probably because the smaller devices dont like the higher load on them. The 640ohm model says best suited for “higher end”systems. Looks like the 320ohm model best suits the axe fx...

    Does anyone use a QSC power amp with the axe?

    From what I can tell you the QSC amps are very good. Depending on the model you get of course. Matrix is the best for the axe fx world as most will tell you here. The Carvin Ts100 is ok, from what I have seen its not powerful enough? Crown is good again depending on which model. They can...

    Picking between Axe-FX II XL+ or AX8

    Get the axe XL. If you are worried about those things, dont limit yourself. The ax8 is nice but its good for playing live and portability. If you are playing at home, a normal midi pedal should be all you need. Just my 0.02c. ;)
