    FS Axe FX2 MK1 + MFC 101 MK1 $1400

    Selling my original Axe FX2 rig. Full disclosure the Ethernet jack on the MFC was repaired (little tab broke off not allowing the jacks to click on) by the fractal support group a few years back. The Axe FX2 unfortunately has this issue and isn’t repaired. The port works just fine, cables just...

    Road Case Suggestions for Matrix FR12

    Just got a Matrix FR12. Loving it. Had used a ASM-12 for a year on the road now and its showing its scars, which is cool, but I dont really want the FR to suffer the same fate. Ive had the ASM in a padded Tuki Covers bag and it protected it from alot, but not enough unfortunately. The Tuki also...

    Need help to incorporate a flexible FOH and FRFR rig with DI

    Use an AXE8 and Friedman ASM 12 I currently run: output 1 XLR to FOH output 2 1/4" x XLR cable to ASM12 (25 feet) The band I'm hired in currently needs me to carry an acoustic. While the AX8 could handle that, I'm sure, I know that FOH guys would rather have a separate feed. I was thinking...

    To stick with Matrix or not

    So my Matrix GT1000fx blew up on me a few weeks ago. Basically I asked to borrow a speaker cable at my bands practice space. Normally I use a heavy duty speakon-1/4" cable that is maybe 3 feet in length. The cab i use at the space was covered with new PA gear, so I said i could just put my rack...

    Experience swapping pickguards with aftermarket parts

    My mirror jem pickguard cracked and i purchased a "FITS JEM RG SERIES" type mirror guard to replace it. It was only 30 bucks so i figured it was worth the gamble. Printed out the template and seemed like it would match. Showed up a week later and the outer holes fit but 3 towards the edges do...

    Instrumental Lots of Solo song

    Just a bunch of guitar over the top of a song I did today. Main focus for this was fixing my old BRMR Jem and uninstalling a Tremel-no and putting the original claw back in correctly. I missed this guitar.

    HELP Lo Pro Edge Tremelo Sticking

    I've had my JEM BRMR for about 10 years now and it has now started to "stick" when the tremelo goes back to the resting position. If i push on it, itll get stuck a half note sharp, and if i pull on it it can get stuck a half note flat. This results in pretty much it never going back to the...

    Uptempo fast driving song

    Im starting to lean towards using the ac15 and lighter models than going straight for the 5150III or HBE. This one is pretty neat. Im just waiting for a vocalist to get around to putting lyrics on it.

    John Legend cover with fw15

    Evening! Me and some friends decided on a whim to do a cover of John Legend's "All Of Me" with a more contemporary rock twist I guess. Took around 6 hours from start to where its at now. We're really proud of it, hope you like it! Oh....axe fx for bass and guitar. FW15 rules.

    14.02 Top Boost

    Its a WIP but I was so happy with how well the amp has a dynamic open ness to it now. It feels like a perfect crunch. EDIT: Changed the link to be the newest version complete with harmony guitar solos, strings and eagles landing on my shoulder on a mountain.

    Punky thing

    It started out as a joke, still kinda is lol. I used the JCM 800 Mod for the guitars and the bass was just through the SVT patch. Drums are my fingers. I bet you'd never guess what guitar I used for it.

    Anybody get anything in the Walmart.com fiasco this morning?

    Eleven Rack. HEAR ME OUT

    So my other guitar player bought an 11 rack (it was a deal trust me). We have been running it off my matrix gt1000 but the sound is very flubby and kinda awful. Now I know the Axe II is far superior but it cant be that much of a substantial difference. Im thinking that im just hooking it up...

    Another Matrix GT1000FX Review

I usually run my axe out1 to a poweramp...
