    Backline Advice with AF3 / FM3

    I am very glad and it's my pleasure. When programming I try to channel the builder's mindset and what they were trying to achieve, and also Cliff's porting of the same. Each amp has its own qualities and they're worth seeking out. Thanks for the kind comment. There's more to come. Cheers.
