    I was able to sell my AXE2 and my AX8 to buy the AXE 3.This thing just keeps getting better,but somehow I started to play with all the knobs and the next thing I know my tone is getting fizzy and sounding crappy.Mostly because I was trying amps I never owned and wasn't familiar with.
    So a quick look into Yek's amp guide and a visit to some of my old amps I used to own and its back in tone heaven.I settled in the Legato 100 with Yek's recommended settings and my Kelton Swade 1960 Strat was screaming.Added a Fuzz Face set mild and an RC booster,lost an hour or so playing that one.
    This thing has so much power under the hood its easy to get lost in knob turning.But I just have to remember the basics and keep things simple.If it sounds good then all is ok in my tone world.

    PS if you haven't grabbed Yek's ample guide do it,it will save you hours of tone searching.

    The next logical step is for you to get the Austin Buddy Naked Tone pack.

    Thank me later ;)

    Most definitely,I bought it for my AX8 and loved it.It makes building presets so much easier with barely any tweaking.
