    Some Brad Paisley Christmas music from rehearsal

    Here’s a quick clip using a DrZ model with the York Audio Matchless cabs at rehearsal. I was really happy with my Axe as always. Guitar is a Pickard Tele we made at our store with Lambertones Blondies pickups.

    Nick Johnston playing my Axe-Fx 2 at a clinic

    So we had virtuoso Nick Johnston do a clinic at our shop today. I had him running through my Axe Fx2 going through the pa and a Line 6 powercab for the stage monitor. Got lots of compliments from the attendees about how it sounded. Here’s a little clip from soundcheck.

    Wish: Some kind Financing for Fractal

    Just had an idea and was wondering if Fractal had ever thought of getting some kind of financing available through like Synchrony Bank or something since that's what Guitar Center, Sweetwater, and Sam Ash all use? I bet they would sell even more units getting some kind of 0% financing deal like...

    Any guys here mess with a Helix?

    Let me start by saying I have been a happy Axe 2 owner since 2013, but sometimes I get stuck in the rabbit hole trying to create new tones. I was thinking about getting a helix lt as a backup, lazy man rig when I don’t feeling like bringing a rack and mfc, and as an effects board for my amps. I...

    Demo I did of a custom built Tele with my Axe 2

    Hey guys, just wanted to share a quick video I did on a tele we built at a shop I help out at. Used my Axe 2 fw 9.04. Clean preset is Austin Buddy’s Suhr Badger 30 and gain preset is one I created with Dirty Shirley v2. Not a fancy video, just playing through my Yamaha 8 inch studio monitors and...

    A clip from our Christmas show

    Both of us are using Axe FX 2 direct to foh. Sorry for the couple of nervous mistakes. I’m the one playing the seafoam Prs Vela and my buddy Alan is playing the other Prs. It’s our version of Lincoln Brewster’s Miraculumn with a dance segment in the middle of the song. I think it sounds decent...

    Axe Fx and in ears

    I use a set of ultimate ears when using my axe at church. I was thinking about grabbing a new set with all the sales going on. My local guitar center carries the shure se 215, 315, and Westone Um pro 10. What are you guys using? Also is there a big difference between the 215 and 315 for guitar...

    Need some preset creating advice from my fellow Fractalites

    Let me start by saying I still love my axe fx. I use it at church every week with in ears and I have been using fractal since Axe standard. When I play live with my band I have been running a Friedman Runt head with pedals instead of my axe that I always ran live before. Lately it seems I'm more...

    Need some advice on using different guitars with my Axe

    So I just got a new PRS S2 Standard 24 satin that has a push/pull coil tap to split the coils and give you a single coil type sound. Obviously when you coil tap it there is much less volume coming from the guitar. Could I add a block to my presets somehow that I could engage with my mfc to boost...

    Love my Fractal gear

    Just popping in to say how awesome Fractal gear is. I have been a user since Axe FX Standard which I still have. The tones especially since the Quantum firmwares are excellent. I love my gear so much I got this tattoo last night.

    Recommendations for Brad Paisley cab tones

    Hey guys I could use some recommendations for cabs to use with the DRZ amps to get a Brad Paisley type tone. I have a lot of own hammer stuff, Fractal Cab Packs, and Cab Pack 7 and 8. I just haven't had much luck getting that percussive twang.

    More praise for Xitone cabs

    Just wanted to tell you guys on the forum how happy I am with a cab I customized with Mick from Xitone cabs. I had a vht 2x12 cab I wanted to turn into an frfr cab. Mick installed his coax speaker setup and I couldn't be happier. Punchy like a guitar cab, but flat frequency. The sound is very 3d...

    Advice on a frfr cab

    I have an ev elx112p that I'm not real satisfied with. It seems to lack mids and I don't hear the same clarity for my axe I do with my studio monitors. I have an old atomic 18watt 1x12 amp that the power amp died in. I'm thinking about getting a pwr amp like an ehx magnum 44 or maybe an...

    Call me crazy, but still prefer my Axe 2 over real amps

    I ventured out to Sam Ash Black Friday to get a PRS Se custom 24 with a Floyd Rose for $500. Sweet deal and a killer guitar. I demoed the guitar through an Evh 3 channel head plugged into an Evh 1x12. The amp did nothing for me and I have had way better Evh tones with my axe. The sales guy was...

    Mfc MK3 stopped communicating

    At a gig last night my mark 3 Mfc stopped working with my axe 2. My axe was on a scene I set up for a lead boost and wah and couldn't get back to my regular scene, no changes worked from the pedal. I had to walk to my axe and turn the knob to change my scene. Between songs I rebooted my axe and...

    Ways to protect MFC at gigs

    Anyone here come up with any creative ways to protect their MFC at gigs from spills and clumsy drunks? That and I would like to know if anyone has kind of tested the durabillty of their mfc because of idiots at bar gigs? I just got my MFC and I'm trying to reassure myself I guess. :)

    The longer I have my axe the more I love it

    Went into guitar center to window shop and mess around. Plugged a Les Paul into a Marshall DSL40c combo expecting to hear good tone. I think having an Axe 2 and Axe Standard has spoiled me. I didn't like the Marshall at all. I bought a Marshall t-shirt and when the guy rang me up he asked what...

    Opinion on High Gain Ownhammers

    Looking for a general consensus on which of the 3 cabs Diezel, Mesa, or Engl that everyone prefers. I'm not really a metal guy but have heard some great clips here with lower gain also. On one comparison I thought the Diezel sounded best. Don't have enough to buy them all so I would like to...

    I need to run 2 versions of axe edit

    On my laptop I have both old axe edit for my standard and new axe edit for my 2. I have a new pc and I want to have both edits on there for both my units. When I download them from fractals site they just overwrite each other and cancel each other out. Any ideas?

    Great gig with my Axe 2 last night

    I did some tweaking before a gig last night that had me grinning ear to ear all night. I decided instead of just dialing my presets in on my Yamaha HS80 studio monitors, I would also plug in my Ev elx112p frfr cab. This made all the difference in the world. I ended up using Scott Peterson's...

    Display issues

    Lately at times my axe standard display is hard to read. It looks washed out if you look at it straight on. If you look down at it from the sides you just see green.

    I have a standard that I have used with my windows 7 laptop before. It is an older version of axe edit with a generic midi USB interface.
