    Make the ambient light brighter, the logo will seem dimmer.

    Blue LEDs suck. I agree something should be done to either disable it, or change the color at least. Should be easily implemented for the second batch. Horrible oversight IMO.

    I remember people used to complain about the green LCD, it’s total deju Vu all over again....

    I’m sure Cliff will gladly implement designer colors, an apology and maybe give you guys $5 from his wallet. Heck, maybe just dissolve the company out of shame since he clearly doesn’t know what he’s doing

    Don't like it... don't but it. Trivial complaints.

    The blue light on the III can't be adjusted through software.

    Also annoying, but nowhere near as bright and easier to deal with since they're just dots. And anyway, irrelevant as, the last time I checked, this is not an Equator Wishlist forum. But thanks for participating :D

    It is bright. I got the unit yesterday and that was the first thing I noticed :) I can play in the dark now.

    People, this is a WISH section of the forum. It's meant for people to post their personal wishes (relevant to the product).

    There's no need to post snarky and sarcastic comments, as that's a prerogative of the moderators. :cool:

    In other words: be constructive or just do not post.

    Would it be a difficult mod to change the color to a green LED?

    I love it myself. The III is the nicest looking piece of rack gear I've owned and have had quite a few :)

    I think the blue looks quite cool. The ultimate thing would've been a controllable RGB light where you can assign each color channel to a controller :p

    I have some old green light gels that we used on our old stage lights that I cut a piece off of and put in my pullout lights on my Furman, might have to put some on the AxeIII. We put different colors in some of our tour bus lights years ago when we would party, good times!

    Nice in a stage rack, but as a piece of studio gear it is annoying. Just imagine if the other dozen rack units all wanted to blare such lights. At least give it DMX control :)

    Edit : I find gaff tape to be effective in “solving” the problem :(

    I’ve always wondered why things in blue light are always an illegible smear. Like blue clocks (can’t read em) the Axe III logo (cant make it out more that 1-2’ away) etc. Thought it was just me. Maybe not? This is with glasses on!
