Doesn't take him long
Yeah I upgraded from the AX8 as well. It was great, but there is no comparison with the III in my opinion. It is that good. You could maybe hold out for the FM3? Should sound the same.I upgraded from an AX8. Most of the AX8 firmware updates were very subtle to my ears. The Axe3 is a big step up ! Sorry to give your wallet the bad news.
