    Harley Benton Custom Line Thunder 99 – What a huge/tiny surprise.

    Some time went by since I got it and I used it a lot. I can say now for sure, it is not for a loud band in a big room where all the volume you get is only from the amp and not mic / PA help. However it is amazing for home use / small practice space with normal volume or backup piece for a small...

    Fractal gear is high quality, I had all of them since 2012 or so, few more than once, few used and never had any issue. If you MUST have it (pro gigging musician etc.) than go ahead. It’s a working tool and not a toy and no problem with no warranty. If it’s just GAS and it’s not a working tool...

    What should I buy first? A good guitar or the FM3?

    A good guitar or even a 30K$ will not give you the sounds and inspiration for creativity the FM3 can give.
