    FC Controllers Now Shipping!

    They've cleared something like six months of backorders in the last six weeks. A lot of folks had to wait a lot longer than you and me.

    Is that an..... ULTRA? (Adrian Belew)

    I saw these guys last month and they were outstanding.

    As of May 2019, what are the current fave Axe-Fx III FRFR cabs?

    Ditto on the ASC-10. It's a great size.

    That is EXCELLENT.

    FC Controllers Now Shipping!

    Are the invites now going out for both the FC-6 and FC-12, or are folks still having to wait longer for the 12?

    Wish Wish List: New Amps

    I'd love to see a model of the original 1967 3 knob Marshall 200 (aka Pig). It seems enough different from other Marshalls to merit inclusion, but it might be hard to find one.

    Dweezil Breaks the Axe-Fx

    That's amazing. I'd love to know what he used on the Roxy tour. The amp and auto wah settings on 'More Trouble Every Day' sounded exactly like album.

    Midlife Crisis Car

    Fingers crossed, anyway. I got on the list the first day. They were supposed to be in production by now, but I figure it's going to be at least another couple of years before anything rolls off the assembly line.

    Axe-Fx III Firmware Version 5.07

    Huge. Kind of like a Marshall Super Bass, but with more headroom.

    Can you PM me the settings as well, or post them in this thread?

    Midlife Crisis Car

    I had the same experience. I had BMWs from the early 90s to early 00s and loved them, but the fit and finish on the newer model interiors was really disappointing. I ended up getting an Audi.

    So... I've decided upon the Axe-Fx (+ noob question)

    I got my Axe III in February, and although it hasn't replaced all of my pedals, it has replaced all of my amps. It's totally changed the way I use pedals, though. Instead of using different fuzzes, drives and EQs to achieve different amp tones, I can use different models - and most...

    Any bedroom only players using an Axe-Fx 3?

    For me it's all about getting consistent, good amp tones at reasonable volumes. The Axe just sounds better than a tube amp with an attenuator.

    Problem - Friedman ASM-12 in stereo

    Why wouldn't they disclose a change? "The new ones sound better" seems like a pretty good selling point.

    Problem - Friedman ASM-12 in stereo

    I'd email Friedman and ask if there have been any production changes that would explain the sound difference. If there are and you prefer the newer one, you could buy a second new one and sell the original.

    Technical complian Cross thread confusion at play here - the comment you're referencing was about an Axe II for sale on ebay for $6500, not a FC.

    Axe-Fx III Firmware Version 5.00 Beta

    Gotcha, I'm on desktop. In any case, both sound great, and it's amazing how close they are.

    Axe-Fx III Firmware Version 5.00 Beta

    If you click through, the description says the real amp is the second one. I think the model sounds better, personally.

    Axe-Fx III Firmware Version 5.00 Beta

    The model absolutely sounds better in Leon's JTM45 clip.

    That's either wishful thinking or money laundering.

    Three Amp Blocks?

    First, I'm not necessarily being critical of their approach to resource limiting - I was just surprised. I expected the only constraint would be the CPU, and that it would basically be my problem if I had too much going on. As a software developer, I get why they'd want to keep folks from...

    Three Amp Blocks?

    Yeah, this is how I expected it to work before I got the unit.

    FC Controllers Now Shipping!

    I've only seen one turn up on Reverb. Some guy initially listed an FC-6 for $799, and it ended up selling for $520, which (factoring in the listing fees) is selling at a loss. This doesn't seem like a Spaceman situation where people are buying them to flip. I think everybody legitimately...

    FC Controllers Now Shipping!

    I only got on the list a couple of weeks ago, and the Fractal GM told me that they hoped to wrap up the wait list sometime in March.

    Any more experiences with Friedman ASM10 (or ASC10)?

    Same! I got my ASC-10 last week. Now I'm debating whether to get a second one to go stereo. The only thing I don't like is that the III won't sit on top of it securely in the SKB case.
