    Vai Jamathon live stream... Now!

    I watched a lot on day 1. Everyone who was using Fractal gear in their rigs had a superior tone to the other guitarists. (IMO) I thought Theremin girl was pretty cool, playing For the Love of God.

    Weird AX8 behaviour - settings reverted?

    I've had that happen a few times. Not sure what caused it, but I've got it down to put the settings back the way I like them now :)

    What db boost do you have for solos?

    usually 4 to 5. Our keyboardist has the habit of playing louder during my solos than he does in the rest of the song. I can't make him stop :)

    Drinking at gigs?

    I quit back in '79, but some of my band mates still have a couple now and then on a gig. I figure if the crowd is drinking we'll have an awesome response to our last set of the night, which is almost always.

    Is it just something different or do cobalt strings sound GREAT?

    I haven't tried Clearsounds, so I can't compare. I can tell that the Opti's are coated, but they feel smooth to me.
  47. MesaGuitarGuy

    Is it just something different or do cobalt strings sound GREAT?

    haven't tried the Cobalts. I've been using Elixir Optiweb's 9-46 on my main 2 guitars and they are glorious. (and pricey, but I only have to change them after 8-10 gigs and no breakage)

    Those aging eyes.....

    they make "progressives" now that don't have a distinct line separating the top of the glass from the bottom, it's more of a gradual change, but I have a hard time with those too.

    BOSE S1 - possible new FRFR option

    I mainly use mine for an acoustic duo main, and it gets louder than the manager prefers :) Last week, I used it as my monitor for the AX8 in a band gig and it sounded great. And loud. Surprised me for how small it is.
  60. MesaGuitarGuy

    Wish HiRes Touchscreen

    it would be cool if the AXEIII had a HDMI output to add a nice touchscreen monitor, like the Soundcraft Ui24 does. works like a charm. But I'd still be happy with the AXEIII the way it is!

    New FRFR option: Bose S1 Pro Multi-Position Powered PA System?

    I just bought the battery for mine. We had a gig a month ago where the power went out and I grabbed an acoustic guitar and started walking through the venue playing songs that all the nice people could sing. Almost like a campfire, but without the smoke. I'll be more prepared if it happens...

    Yamaha SPX 90 Symphonic Sound?

    I think mine was set to +23 on one side and -23 on the other not sure what that translates into the AXE chorus

    New FRFR option: Bose S1 Pro Multi-Position Powered PA System?

    I bought one for the numerous requests we get for acoustic duo's. it does sound great for smaller venues. I had an old 12" powered subwoofer I added just for giggles and that helped the low end. I might bring it to one of our band gigs this weekend to hear my AX8 through it. only 15 lbs! it is...

    Which Rack mount Mixer?

    we are using the Soundcraft ui24. It's got a great multi-track recording feature to USB drive, so we can finally get some good live recordings. Using a laptop and an ipad to control it (redundancy) so far, so good.

    Cover Band: Do you match the guitar tones?

    I usually use about 5 presets per gig, for different amp sounds. Marshall, Fender, Tucana, Vox, and Swart . Using those presets with different effects per scene lets me cover pretty much everything pretty close to the original tone.

    Which Line 6 Relay do you use with the AX8?

    G10 with the AX8 in smaller venues. note: I secured the USB cable to the back of the unit so it doesn't fall out. G90 with the AXE FX II on bigger stages no troubles with either.

  77. MesaGuitarGuy

    Anyone find they don’t “need” drive blocks in most cases since getting the AxeII?

    I mainly use the amp distortion. There are times when I do put a drive before the amp, but it's rarely more than 10% dirt. I mainly use it for solos for a little extra sustain and a little extra volume, if needed.

    60 Cycle Hum and the AX8

    I've also started doing this: (from Sweetwater) By nature, hum-causing electricity in the United States has a fundamental frequency of 60Hz (hence the name 60-cycle hum) and harmonics of different volume at 60Hz intervals such as 120Hz, 180Hz, etc., running throughout the frequency spectrum.

    Mission SP-1 noob question!!

    yep, you'll need one for each output on the Mission pedal. Not sure you'll need that much length, I think mine are about 18"
  85. MesaGuitarGuy

    Mission SP-1 noob question!!

    use TRS cables on both outputs. I have one and connect the TRS cables to EXP 1 and EXP 2 on the AX8 You'll need to calibrate the pedal as well

    I am blaming the full moon for the weirdness in my AX8 over the weekend. For some reason, all the global settings got reset to default (my 3 F-keys and spillover, etc).
