    NBD Steve Harris Signature Fender P-Bass

    The classic low end generator of Iron Maiden. Sparkly blue and I love the way this thing looks! It comes strung with flat wound strings as these are what Harris uses as well. A different playing experience for sure. The neck on this thing is MASSIVE. Played it for a couple hours the other night...

    Iron Maiden vocalist in a dogfight @ Sonisphere

    Ok, I'm a huge Iron Maiden fan, so I may be a bit biased. But this is just plain cool! Bruce Dickinson flew a WWI replica tri-plane in a mock dogfight high above the Sonisphere crowd on Saturday afternoon prior to Maiden hitting the stage. Not your average metal gig to say the least! LOL Any of...

    NGD Taylor T5z Pro in a beautiful blue. :)

    Had a red Taylor T5 Custom since 2009. Found this on Sweetwater.com and I had to have it. (I'm a sucker for blue guitars.) So I sold the older T5 Custom and threw the money at this T5z Pro. Very similar to the old one, but it's a 12" neck radius rather than 15" on my previous T5. And it's got...

    For any curious George Lynch fans

    This is from a thread on Gearslutz.com. This is a quote from that thread from Michael Wagener, who produced "Under Lock and Key" for Dokken. The following is his description of how they got George's guitar sound for that album. If you can keep your head from spinning, you're one step ahead of...

    Fractal-Bot Version Quandry

    Looking on my computer today just verifying that I have the latest version of Fractal-Bot. Saw that I had version 1.2.0 and the latest version is 1.2.5. Uninstalled 1.2.0 and downloaded/installed 1.2.5 from the Fractal website. Funny thing is that after doing this, version still shows 1.2.0...

    September issue of Guitar world is chock full o' Fractal

    Starting with Steve Vai and Tosin Abasi on the cover and moving on to Rush, Meshuggah, and Periphery as the featured articles that are advertised on the cover, Fractal Audio Systems is well represented in this issue. The Axe-Fx is no longer on the fringes of the guitar community. It's...

    Preview of the new Steve Vai record. Available 8/14/2012

    Pretty cool. I'm digging it quite a bit. A lot more visceral than he's been in recent years. Loving that Daphne Blue Jem in a few of the still shots too! Check it out! Steve Vai - "Gravity Storm" Preview from his upcoming solo album "The Story of Light" - YouTube

    Question about upgrading firmware the old school way

    I've had an Ultra since March of 2008 and just received my Axe II last week. Through all the time with my Ultra, I never had any issues upgrading the firmware. Many others did. After reading many posts concerning the upgrading of firmware for all Fractal Audio units, most of the issues seem to...

    Volume for SPDIF Out

    So after owning the Ultra for three years, I finally got around to connecting it to my Digi 003 Factory via the RCA SPDIF connection. Everything is working fine and sounds great, but I'm wondering if there's a dedicated output volume control for the SPDIF out, as the Out 1 and 2 on the face of...

    Anyone in Phoenix with Atomic powered wedges?

    I've had my Ultra for almost three years now and have been using a Carvin TS100 power amp with two 4x12 cabs. I'm thinking about going FRFR, and just wanted to see if there's anyone in the Phoenix area who has one (or a pair) of the Atomic powered wedges that I might be able to check out. Thanks!

    Cleartone strings customer service = great!

    I know we all appreciate the level of customer service that we receive from Fractal Audio Systems, so I thought I'd give some love to another company who went above and beyond with me recently. At the suggestion of a friend of mine who is a salesperson at Guitar Center, I started using...

    Sappy post/song alert. You've been warned.

    Ok, so the woman I wanted to grow old with decided to throw in the towel about a month ago and I'm trying to win her back. No drama. Nobody cheated, lied, stole. Nothing like that. Not sure what happened. Just know I have to have her back and I'm posting this here just to send it out to the...

    ZZ Top "Fool For Your Stockings" clean tone

    This one of my favorite clean tones ever. If glass were a sound, this is what it would sound like. Just beautiful. Pretty sure the guitar used is of huge importance here. Don't know what was used on the recording though. My guess would be a Strat or a Tele. Not sure which. Any ideas for a...

    Queensryche "Operation: Mindcrime" era clean

    Looking for those cleaner than clean tones that are found all over the Operation: Mindcrime album. Examples would be the second half of the intro to "Revolution Calling" and the verses of "I Don't Believe In Love". Would love to nail these tones. Thanks! :)
