    7 String Classical Guitar

    I'm thinking about buying a 7 string classical guitar. I got so used to 7 strings that I sometimes miss this extra string when I occasionally play a classical guitar. Since I have a 7 string electric guitar, I've moved the action a lot toward this additional B string and I'm not talking only...

    Single coils, low output for metal?

    I'm too lazy to have separate guitars for different kinds of tones, so I have just one guitar that covers the most of the ground from jazzy-funky over vintage rock to a lot of metal. I was experimenting a bit with different pickups and to my surprise, I found out that the juiciest tones come...

    Mayones Regius 7 - should I?

    This post in the "Suhr vs PRS vs" thread: ...made me check these brands and I got a serious GAS for Mayones Regius 7 Core Classic. I just want to ask, is there a reason not to buy this one? I'm a pretty impulsive buyer and I buy based on my gut feeling before I try the goods (I bought Axe FX...

    Axe-Fx II with Atomic CLR active cab

    Hello Does anybody of you have this setup for playing live with a band? I just can't find the right sound when playing louder with other musicians. As long as a play through my CLR in my studio, which is an euphemism for a small dusty cellar department without isolation and with hordes of...

    Help please with gain staging

    Hi! I would be glad if someone could help me solve an amplification problem. After a long time I'm jamming with my friends again and something is not quite right in my signal chain. I have an Axe FX going into Atomic CLR active speaker. It sounded totally congested at higher volume. We've...

    Output 2 silent

    Sorry if this is a repeating question but I wasn't able to find any solutions on a quick search. I have an Atomic CLR on the output 1 and wanted to connect a pair of additional speakers on the output 2. But there was no sound coming out from output 2. As I've connected the speakers to output 1...

    Bridge pickup, need your help...

    Hello good people! I have an urge to replace my bridge pickup in my Carvin DC727 (maple neck/alder body, C26 bridge pickup with coil splitter). A week ago, I've played for a change my old Gibson SG for the first time with my AXE and I suddenly realised that I like the Alnico pickup sound...

    How to make a bass preset from scratch?

    Hello! I need some help from you guys on how to make bass presets on the Axe FX II that can surprise even experienced bass players :) I've tried a few times but it didn't sound even close to what I would call impressive. I'm just missing something, maybe the input was to high (?) or I just...

    Axe Edit blank...

    Hi! A weird thing happened to my Axe Edit, in the middle of playing and switching between presets, it just turned blank and the status was suddenly "not connected". I have turned everything off than on again, then the next day again and it was still blank. The MFC was not connected and I have...

    Assigning increase/decrease volume to a foot switch

    Hi! I've recently read somewhere in this forum that some people here use two switches on the MFC as a volume controll to adjust the loudness level of a preset with other presets. It's practical to make quick adjustments on the run. I like the idea very much but couldn't find how to do it...

    Funky guitar

    Hello everyone! I've tried to make a fully clean funky guitar preset a few times and it just doesn't work. With clean amps it sounds always a little bit harsh to me instead of smooth like I would like it to be. Do you have any tips? How would you or how do you set up your presets for playing...

    Feedback or feedback simulation

    Please forgive my probably stupid question, but is it somehow possible to achieve or simulate the feedback with the Axe FX? I'm talking about the effect like standing right in front of the real amp with your guitar and making those noises. I have only 2 x 75 W speakers and it surely does not...

    Drive Block

    Hello dear forum fellows! After owning an Axe FX II for a few months now, I can say that my tweaking skills and understanding of the sound has improved pretty decently. I found my favourite amps, IRs which go well with them, EQ settings and so on. But...what I can not find and dial in is a...

    Progressive Solo Lessons

    Hi guys! After seeing a lot of videos posted in the forum "Recordings" I was surprised how many people here have excellent playing skills, which you could and themselves describe as "progressive". I have noticed that many of them have some sort of similarities in techniques and approach they...
