    Fractal Audio AMP models: Matchbox D-30 (Matchless DC-30)

    Before I got the Axe I had a Matchless Phoenix (EL34 plus EF86 in ch.2). The Telefunken EF86 pentode had it's fame in the first Neumann U87 condenser mikes - the only pentode that had a very low noice-floor plus overwhelming dynamics. When I got my Phoenix it had a chinese EF86 - and I had some...

    Fractal Audio AMP models: Hot Kitty (Bad Cat Hot Cat 30)

    The only amp I'm missing is my old Matchless Phoenix with a Telefunken E806F. No Stand-By between sets. You could boil an egg on top of it, but it never failed. Still havent been able to Axe it.

    Whole Lotta Fun with Quantum Vox AC30TB and OH Justin York IRs

    Just sounds like the old, battered 1x12 mini-cab with splinters sticking out on every side that Jimmy used during the whole recording. I once had the picture on a drive. Some Celestion in a tiny cab. He used it for all the tracks on the II album.

    Axe-Fx II "Quantum" Rev 1.00 Public Beta

    My Friedman ASM-12 Review
