    Stuck On Scene?

    I've been experiencing a strange intermittent issue I can't figure out. This past week I've had tone not change between scenes even though the Axe front panel and Axe-Edit displayed a scene change. For example, Scene 1 is a high gain preset with delay, Scene 2 is clean without delay. I change...

    Emulating Bass Guitar

    FAS Wreck is a beast!

    This week I took some time to really dig into the FAS Wreck and…WOW!!! Gorgeous sounding amp and really diverse too! Anyone been digging this one? I think those of you that are chasing sounds from the likes of Gilmore, Timmons, Beck, or even Bonamassa NEED to give this one a try!

    Legend 100, holy $*%#!

    I’m blown away by this one! So much fun to play with this kind of tone. Steve Vai’s tone has this elusive, low mid range magic I’ve never quite been able to get. It’s aggressive, yet smooth. Many amps get too muddy when you boost low mids. The Legacy 100 NAILS it! If you haven’t checked this one...

    Patch for octave down on low notes only?

    Does anyone have a preset they use for getting octave down bass notes while allowing higher notes through without the octave? I did a search and tried a few of the suggestions but didn’t find what I was after. Seems like it is possible with the pitch follower but I can’t seem to prevent the...

    FAS Crunch, Dimarzio Cruiser, Fender Texas Specials

    Check out the sounds from the Dimarzio Cruiser (using the bridge version, like Andy Timmons) in the neck position of my Strat combined with the beautiful FAS Crunch amp! Gotta say, that FAS Crunch has beat out the Friedman C45 for my go to amp these days. I also compare the Dimarzio Cruiser to...

    Go to amp for HSS guitars

    Just curious what others are using for their super strat style guitars. Generally, I’ve been using the USA Pre for super clean, Cory Wong style cleans, Vibroverb for gritty clean-mid gain, and the Friedman HBE 2018 for high gain. Also, just put a couple of 470k resistors in for my single coils...

    Fender Texas Special vs Fender Hot Noiseless Pickups

    Hey y’all, here’s a video I did comparing the Fender CS Texas Specials to the Fender Hot Noiseless pickups. I play a bunch of classic riffs using 3 amps from the Axe Fx III, Super Reverb, Vibroverb, and the 50w Plexi Jump. I have to say, the results surprised me! Hopefully some of you find this...

    Kiesel Delos HSS Demo & Playthrough

    Hey Y'all, I just got a new Kiesel custom Delos, which is their version of a super strat. I made a video demoing all the pickup positions with various amounts of gain. And of course I used the Axe-Fx III. If anyone has been curious about Kiesel I highly recommend giving this a watch! Hope this...

    Wide interval guitar playing

    Any Carl Verheyen fans around here? I love the way he uses intervals to build guitar lines. I had the unique opportunity to learn from him when I was a student at Musicians Institute and wanted to pass on some concepts that might be fun to try. Here’s my YouTube video about creating wide...

    High End IEM...Really worth it?

    So I already have a pair of Ultimate Ears UE 5, which is a two driver configuration. Anyone here have experience with some of the high end stuff like UE 18+ or JH Audio Roxanne? As far as the guitar tones, I’m already pretty happy with the sound. It’s the full band mix that seems to always be...

    SPDIF Clicks and Static

    I’m getting some occasional clicks and static with the spdif connection. I thought it might’ve been the beta firmware but the same sounds are present even after rolling back to the earlier firmware. This is happening across multiple presets and scenes. Up to this point I’ve only connected the...

    Favorite Cabs for Friedman?

    Just curious, what are your go to cab IR’s for the Friedman C45? Especially interested to hear what people are using live. I’m currently using a strange combo, a JBL E130 SM57C (many know this from Tyler Grund’s awseome SRV tones) and Factory 2 532 which is 4x12 Brit 70s GB 160 B. Sounds great...

    Tempo Issue

    i’m having an issue with the stored tempo in my Axe III presets that I suspect could be MFC related. For example, I program a preset and set the tempo to 96, make sure that tempo to use is set to “preset” not global, save the preset. When i recall the preset using the MFC the tempo is somewhere...

    Dialing tones for use with IEMs

    Curious, how many people are using the Axe III with in ear monitors? Anyone have any tips or tricks to share? Personally, I’ve been creating separate signal paths for FOH and my IEM’s. This way I can add more bass, and be more aggressive with reverbs and delays. In my experience, you sacrifice...

    Go to settings for clean tone solos

    Hey y’all, I’m curious to hear how people are setting up their patches for clean solos. I’ve gotten some great results from the Fender style amps, but one issue I have is a lack of sustain. In particular, my bends just don’t ring out as long as I’d like. Any suggestions?

    IA#6 Not Syncing

    I have my Axe-FX Ultra and MFC-101 Mark III latest firmware setup to have Drive 1 on IA#6 but it's not showing up. I checked to see the CC#'s are correct on the Axe and MFC and they seem to be. I even tried having another effect on IA#6 but it's not syncing with the Axe-FX. The LEDs light up and...

    Reveal Mode Exclusive Midi commands

    Mark IIC+7 String Vid

    So I posted this tune a few weeks back but just did a video of it. YouTube - Colin Gailey - Cruise Control I used an old patch I had based on the Mark IIC+ and added a BB drive block with a slight mid boost. Got such a good feel out of it I had to add a little intro jam to the song.
