    Has anyone dropped the Axe-Fx 3?

    I have the Monster 3500. So far so good with protection. Some folks say its glorified power strip. I don't know why. I have to confess I did little research before buying the Monster instead of, say, a Furman, etc.. Maybe folks who have had problems did not reading the manual and randomly...

    Has anyone dropped the Axe-Fx 3?

    Right now I have a Monster 2500 power conditioner, which is too big and its a glorified power strip. So I don't think I can keep that and fit the FC-12, EV2 and cables in the 6U. But I'll give it a try! ;)

    M@: How can we help? E.g., would it help if those of us driving brought chairs or is there a space issue? Should we bring our all or part of our FRFR rigs (e.g., CLRs, etc.) for jamming in the main room on Saturday night after things wrap up? Or would that become a logistical nightmare?
