Very cool. Congratulations on a job well done!
Same here Toopy - 47 now, got the guitar bug around 40 when I came across U2 Guitar Tutorials. Started going down the amp and pedal route and quickly realized the Axe was the only way to go in pursuit of Mr. Edge's tone. Now we have Quantum and The Edge is on the "official" list. Just a dream come true for us U2 fans and just another example what an incredible company FAS is. Congrats guys!There is no other!
I've been following the Edge and U2 since my college days in 1982, when the War album came out. I first saw U2 at Exhibition Stadium in Toronto, during the ZooTV tour. I was completely blown away by what I saw...and heard. I took my first guitar lesson, 10 years ago, at the age of 41 because of Mr. Edge.

It's only going to get worse now, the possibilities with the Axe-Fx are endless!
I know some of you "Fractal Spotters" have seen the green glow behind him for some time, but today we officially welcomed The Edge SNIP
In this case I think it is best for the artist to be in control of these details, though I know that others have already stated publicly that he is using amp models. I am hoping that the European press will do some kind of interview or run down at the end of the tour so all of these questions can be answered for the world.Good news. Can you tell us how he uses the Axe fx on his tours? What aspects of the Axe fx is he actually using? effects only? or also amp modelling? and does he combine the effects of the Axefx with his other 19" effects gear and pedals?
