    That stinks having to wait so long. I bought two of them last year when my Axe came up on the wait list. Glad I got them when I did. Hope they are coming soon for you folks waiting.

    As of May 2019, what are the current fave Axe-Fx III FRFR cabs?

    I am using a Friedman ASM-10 and an ASC-10. Love the sound from both of them!

    Atomic CLR Neo MK2 vs Friedman ASM-10?

    The problem with this is that one setup is the raw speaker with amp and the other is a mic'd cabinet tone. I mean, it sounds fantastic either way. The ASC-10 sounds a bit different then the ASM-10 due to the cabinet design. You are not doing anything wrong as I use the bass cut switch on the...

    Three EV-2 pedals loses mechanical calibration and my solution (HELP PLZ)

    Very strange, Tom! I'm trying to replicate this on both of my EV-2s but it is not doing this. I got both of mine through last summer. I wonder if they made a running change? Good on you for coming up with a solution! Well done!!!

    Rack panel with Axe-Fx 3?

    I have used BTPA for some things and Redco for others. Both have been great vendors to deal with! I recently ordered a new 12 punched panel as I am updating my setup a bit so I can run in stereo with my FRFRs. I do all of my own work so it is all parts that I order when needed.

    Making the switch From Friedman BE-100 to Axe-Fx III

    I have a BE-50 that I have no intentions of selling. It is always nice to still have an amp around. In my case, I'm really fortunate and thankful to have both setups. There are days that the Axe III does what I want and what I want to hear, and there are days I just want to use my amp and...

    How many playing on Headrush 108’s?

    I had the FR108 and found it was ok. I had an issue with several of my clean patches at a higher volume when using it as my monitor. It would cause a flubbing sound. No problem with the clean patch running through my ASM-10 at all. I was hoping this one would work for me but it looks like...

    Friedman ASM/ASC and Casters

    I added these to my Friedman BE-212. I got them direct from Mesa. They are outstanding for a 212 cab. For an ASM, I would say no. For an ASC which is amp-like in stature, they would work nicely. You will need to add a 1/2" to 3/4" wood block on the inside of the cab to hold them properly...

    I remember the ol' Kemper fiasco. I have nothing against that product at all and I think it is a great unit with a brilliant concept. I had a couple of them and both of them had issues...one after a few weeks and another after less than a year. The first unit took 4 months to repair. The...

    Playing through FRFR in the same room as a real amp

    This is sound and solid advice and quite frankly, it is no different when using a real amp. As pointed out, what you hear at home is nothing like how it blends in with the mix of playing live. At home by it self, you like to crank the bottom a bit and drop the mids.....live, I drop the bottom...

    It was an ok unit. I had the cab+ since may of last year. I liked many of the features on it and the whole utility of the unit. I used it at a few gigs both indoors and outside during the summer season. I ended up trading it in for something else that I needed and got a Friedman ASM-10 which...

    FC Controllers Now Shipping!

    I’m betting that they shipped out units to many Beta testers and after a couple of weeks of having them without issues, they will probably start flowing them out next week after the New Years holiday. Makes good sense. It would be awful if they suddenly shipped them out, only to find out that...

    Coming from Helix to Axe-Fx III

    The Axe III is the one modelling unit that has completely satisfied me for using live and recording. It is really an amazing sounding unit and so powerful. I've had a Kemper when they first came out and while nice, I did not like the unit all that much. I had a Helix a couple of years back...

    What is everyone doing for live setup?

    Right now I am running my BE-50 and UA OX for live along with my pedalboard. My monitoring is via my BE-212 or my ASM-10 depending upon how much space we have and the venue. When my FC becomes available, I'll be running my Axe III, FC-6 and Friedman ASM-10 for my monitor.

    Poll: Where do you use your Axe-Fx III mostly?

    Tough question....without the FC, I only use it at home. When the FC arrives soon, well.....it's on!!! Can't wait to use this beast live!!! So impressed with it all around, especially the updates and customer service.

    I don't know....it just seems like you may be continually chasing your tail with this one, Cooper. Since it is such a new product, perhaps releasing one video at a time would be more beneficial and adding it to your library would be a better setup? Perhaps start with some basic standard setup...
  71. PBGas

    Leap of Faith

    We are all in same boat here with the FC. I am dying to use mine live and just take a simple setup with me. Love my amps but I love what the Axe III has with everything in one box. Just so much power under the hood and the tone is incredible! It will happen at some point.
  72. PBGas

    Don't take the Axe-Fx III for granted! (Tried Line6 Helix)

    I was not at all a Fractal fan for many years. It wasn't because the product was not solid, it was due to all of the waiting list nonsense. They did things right this time and when I saw what was going into the Axe III, I had to try it. I am a long time tube amp user since I was a kid. I...

    What's your FC pedal waitlist signup date/time?

    I bet you will be pleasantly surprised. Look at how well they did with the waitlist for the Axe III. Fractal did a great job with meeting the demands. I remember reading in previous years back when people would be on the waiting lists for very long time periods.
  75. PBGas

    What's your FC pedal waitlist signup date/time?

    I have stored in my email the following confirmations: May 5 @ 10:30 AM......was told to send in at that time when I inquired and put FC-6 in the subject line.I also have May 17 @ 10:15am based on the waitlist announcement (in case my other one was missed). No doubt they will have plenty to...

    As a rule, I won't update for about 3-5 months. You just never know. Let them get the bugs out of it first.
  77. PBGas

    Does the III reproduce the full bottom end of a tube amp?

    I run mine through a Friedman ASM-10 and it is fantastic! I had the Line 6 Powercabs but they are nothing like the ASM stuff. Just a fuller tone from the Friedman FRFR.

    Switching between monitors and guitar cabinets

    I am not at all a fan of using the Axe III without the IRs. They just sound fabulous through a great FRFR monitor and direct. I literally just got the new ASM-10 from Friedman delivered to me on Friday and it is amazing with the Axe III. I've never been happier with a modelling setup.

    Any Axe-Fx III users with a Whammy DT?

    There is a post on it somewhere here with a comparison, I believe. I have a Digitech drop pedal and I compared it with the drop feature on the Axe III. Needless to say, I don't need the drop pedal anymore.

    Selling the amps?

    As much as I like my Axe III, I still use my BE-50 regularly and love it. There is no replacing it for me. I’m keeping it around as I still enjoy plugging into an amp.

    Can We Hear Some FC Beta Tester Experiences?

    YES! That is for sure. And that time is a very frustrating wait, especially with a pile of gigs lined up through this summer. But...patience is a virtue. Can’t wait to use my Axe III for gigging!

    Brutal playing in those conditions. Glad you survived! We had to play on Saturday and the heat was oppressing. Lots of gatorade and water as well. I haven't use my AxeIII yet live until I get my FC-6. I used my BE-50, UA OX, small pedalboard and Line6 powercab +. All was great through...
