    Hi all, i am finally moving on from my ultra to an Axe fx ii! I recently sold my ultra and used the cash to buy an evh 50w and matching cab. Which i got for an incredible deal. I then sold it (with profit!) and tomorrow I am picking up my axe ii! I have been bitten by the axe fx bug and tube amps dont do it for me anymore. Especially the weight and maintenance. Tubes are expensive! I will still try to help on this discussion forum with the ultra if i can. I used the crap out of that awesome machine!

    Actually I got the 2. Wish I got the iii! Hahah. I bought an Alto Ts312 to go with it but I just cant get a good tone for my 7 string. Im going to get a cab and power amp and try that route as well to see if its me or the Alto. So far I have noticed:

    - way more amps and cabs! Wow, its also super easy to add more IR’s and such.

    - no more midi to use axe edit! Usb is so much easier.

    - Amps sound so much more alive, again except for the patches I made for the 7 strings... hahah

    So far Im in love with it and I think it was a good upgrade especially for the price I got it for. The Ultra was very nice and did what it did but this thing is a big jump in a great direction.

    I think to get all out if it, I will need to invest in a very expensive frfr speaker. The Alto cant handle this thing well. However I was on a bit of a budget after buying the ii so its a good start for now.

    Just my two cents, when you're ready to upgrade from the Alto, I really recommend the QSC KW 122. I used that with the II and now the III and absolutely love it.

    Haha! Yeah, it is a little up there, but totally worth it in my opinion. The new K12.2 is a little more cost effective, but I have not heard it so can't comment on the sound yet.
