    OZZY Flying High VIDEO MARK DAY Fatter strings Skinnier dude.

    Thank you for the video. I'd like to comment on a specific point though (hopefully you won't be offended): I hear unpleasant high frequencies when you play the open E & B strings (@54/56 secs for instance).

    Axe Fx II Headphones question + Problem.

    It's possible your headphones enhance or tame certain frequencies. Some say higher impedance headphones usually have a flatter frequency response and are truer to the original signal. I'm not sure I agree with that.The Sony MDR 7506, for instance, is known to have a flat FR yet it's only 63...

    Dang, you're going to drive Cliff crazy. Have you read the other posts about the Axe II and headphones? In your particular case you need to mention what monitors you use with your PC.How does their frequency response compare your headphones'? That'd be a good start... Edit: Wait, did you say...

    warranty ? do I have to register my axe fx 2

    When I wanted to buy a used Standard (originally purchased from G66) a few years ago Sussi told the seller to give the new onwer's name so I could take advantage of G66's customer service. I have no idea if warranty transfers are still possible.

    Axe fx 2's on eBay

    Voltage is not an issue. RTFM 2nd page of the manual (you can download it even if you don't have the Axe II): 3. Connect only to a proper AC outlet of 100–240V, 47–63 Hz. Warranty is the BIG issue in your case.

    Bass Amps and Vocal or console preamps

    I agree, the Axe is weak when it comes to bass sounds.It seriously lacks punch/headroom. It'd be nice to have a block dedicated to bass amp simulations and a sub-block for bass effects.

    No VAT in the US, it's a sales sax which is collected if the product is shipped within the same state. There's no sales tax in New Hampshire (where Fractal Audio is located) anyway.
