    Selling Guitars Online - Best Place Nowdays?

    Hey, up to you, but we're just talking about trying to sell stuff here. I've bought and sold hundreds of guitars, amps and pedals there. Never had a bad transaction. Big audience of people interested in gear. No fees (other than pp fees if you use it). No tax. I go to Reverb as a last resort.

    Carol Ann Appreciation Thread

    I find the CA's (in my Axe III) to be incredibly dark and muddy. Yes, I know I can just make adjustments to brighten them but I always wonder why they are set that way. Even new CA Cygnus presets on III. Just so muffled I can't believe anyone would use them that way out of the box. And yes I had...

    Updated to this from previous beta. All my user made presets are empty! First problem I've ever had with an update. Edit: And it's not loading presets from the backup I made with the beta. This is a disaster!! Edit: OK, user made presets are still there except for any presets I ever modified...

    Synergy Syn2 or Revv G20 (D20)

    I’ve got a Syn 2 sitting right next to my Axe III and it sounds great. Dare I say a little better to my ears than the Axe for a given amp tone, although not as convenient and flexible.

    Soldano 100 Lead sounds amazing to me. Think it's my favorite.

    I'll never understand what makes it so difficult...

    If people start with the presets I do find them overall way too dark. Easily fixed. To me, the first thing I do on any amp is flick the "cut" switch. Much better.

    Axe-Fx III - First Impressions

    Wanna set up to FOH, but have dumb questions...

    For the FOH side a powered FRFR PA speaker is best, after that headphones and/or studio monitors. But at the end of the day, it’s not going to be the same as what the FOH is so you will be dependent on the Sound guy to some extent.

    Maybe I missed it all these years (I've been using either presets or my own templates forever). Would like to be able to "insert blank column" just to be able to add a new type of block without having to move everything over manually.
