    Differences from AX8 (Ares? Quantum?) to FM9/Axe FX 3.

    It is always a trade-off. Cooper stated in his video that the FM9 was 50 percent of the power of the Ax III.. I know, we asked for the next floor unit to be a floor version to the Ax3..

    Which Xitone active wedge is best?

    Reporting: I got the 10inch MBrit (Xitone) and wow! What projection and power. It sounds like I'm playing a amp with my trusty old AX-8.. Especially on the Clean amps. I'll be adding another one for stereo. Also, it's very quiet.. And, this baby can get very loud..

    Which Xitone active wedge is best?

    I just purchased a 'gently' used Mbritt (Xitones) 1 x10 cab.. Great Great Great !!. Looking to purchase another one for 1600 (true) watts.

    What's a good distort pedal for a Fender Deluxe?

    So, the newer units (FM3/Ax-FXIII have stomp OD's and Disto pedal models that work well in front of a pristine clean amp (model)? Meaning, turn on a pedal (on pristine clean amp model), boom.. beautiful singing lead OD/Distortion.. ? Thanks

    What's a good distort pedal for a Fender Deluxe?

    Yes. That's been my dilemma. I don't think Fractal modeled the ODs and Distortion boxes to run on a clean amp. Rather, to kick an already mild to hot amp into overdrive. Which is not my choice. That's why I use a Friedman BD-Deluxe pedal with the AX8. Just until I get use to kicking in a cool...

    Why still a Drive pedal and so many Amp models? (it’s not about the nr of Amp or Drive models)
