    Plexi 100w 1970 Appreciation!

    Anybody else using this one? I've only really explored it today but it feels a bit more explosive and seems a bit spongier to play than my usual faves which are the 1959SLP and the 100W. Maybe it's the inclusion of the Normal Channel as I normally only use the treble but such a great model...

    For those that have an Axe-Fx III and an FM3

    I've found that they do sound slightly different? Sometimes the volume matching between amps is slightly off if I port a preset, and generally I find the Axe III to sound and feel a little bit.. squishier? It's small and you'd never notice it in a mix, but it is there IMO. However, that said, it...

    I remember this seeming like an idea that was floating around at the time the FM3 was announced. I don’t know what to call them other than “sidebars” but I remember people wanting to remove them to butt the two units up against each other in the “OMG9”. Any clues?
