ALL THIS WAS NOTHING AGAINST THE AXE-FX - IT MAKES ME REALLY HAPPY
I have had an Axe FX II for about a year now. It is connected to an Engl 2 x 50 watt power amplifier. I have 2 4x12" Marshall boxes connected to it. The ones with the greenbacks. And what can I say? I will never play anything else again. It's hard to imagine that it could be any better. But that's how it seems to be. That's why I want the Axe FX 3 Turbo so bad. Over the years, I've had just about all the big-name stuff. None of that was anything compared to the Axe FX. It makes me really happy. And I can't stop playing. So, now I hope to have the FX III soon, and the floor pedal to go with it.
Have a nice day
BY FAR THE BEST COMPANY WITH THE BEST SUPPORT!
Wow - what can I say!
You are by far the best company with the best support I have experienced so far – seriously!
1000 thanks ;-)
FRACTAL AUDIO IS T - H - E SOUND!
How nice it is to receive an email directly from the owner and thank you also for your personalised letter. Just wanted to give a quick update as your customer service is so great. FM3 arrived yesterday. I am honestly speechless. I am never stepping back to other gear and will now start selling my floor effects collection. The Fractal sound is T-H-E sound.
Thanks for everything,
I ADMIRE YOUR CONCEPT - KEEP IT UP!
I am happy and surprised at the same time about your personal answer.
I admire your concept of bringing high-quality products directly to the customer - professionally and very personally. And I admire that you have very successfully managed to win over the customers themselves as brand ambassadors.
Some of my (advertising) clients follow the same concept - also with success!
Keep up the good work!
Best regards from Bad Waldsee
THE FM3 IS THE BUSINESS – THE ÜBER-BUSINESS !
Hey Knut, thank you very much.
Have I ever mentioned how ingenious I find the FM3, no.
The FM3 is the business, or rather the über-business.
Best regards Marco
I HAD TO CRY MY EYES OUT: SOMETHING HAPPENED THAT I WOULD NEVER HAVE EXPECTED IN THIS LIFE - A MIRACLE!
Yes, so... I'm sitting here and have to write to you. I can't help it. I could cry (and have done so).
To my great surprise, I actually managed to get the FM 3 to sound right through my two Ethos overdrive amps. Tried all the presets, at first hypersceptical (I can hear fleas coughing and.... yes, fleas coughing, whoever says otherwise has no idea), then more and more relaxed, found great clean sounds, on the other hand Bludotone is absolutely great for me. And I'm still only scratching the surface of the possibilities.
I went straight into the guitar inputs after everything else sounded more than suboptimal (FX Return etc.). Not much clipping, I can turn off the bass on the amps anyway. And then something happened that I never expected to happen in this life. For me it's a miracle. God knows I've played and tried out a lot in my life.
My best sound 25 years ago an old Blade Telecaster in a universe!!! solid state Hi-Fi amp with homemade cable, Tube Screamer TS 10, Ibanez Delay, nothing else. Pick-sensitive, nothing sounded like Hi-Fi, tight bass, great clean sounds, never sounded like solid state. Solo it sounded like a mixture of Santana and Dumble (although the term was completely foreign to me at the time). Simply divine. By the way, only with zinc-carbon batteries in the tube screamer, if they weren't in, the sound was almost gone.
And I wasn't the only one who found it divine. I have never been able to reproduce this sound since.
And today, I am still completely stunned... actually speechless and struck to the core...so I go to preset 73 (ODS HRM Hot Touch), bridge pickup and immediately, instantly get goosebumps. There it is. The sound. Without changing anything. With a light touch a David Lindley sound, with more touch Robben Ford (Talk to your daughter, Cannonball Shuffle, depending on the picking). As I said, I am completely stunned. Even if all the rest of the presets were unusable for me, I would have to keep the thing. I am shocked... Like a dream. It's certainly partly a happy interaction of the FM 3 and the rather improper use (Ethos Amp instrument input, modelling and cabs not switched off), but strangely enough it doesn't make noise like before, even without the humbuster. The overall sound is even better than it was back then. I've been noodling for 4 hours now ;)
FM3 Edit and Fractal Bot also work and now I'm blissfully going to sleep and dreaming of Alexander Dumble; who is surrounded by lots of good-looking girls. God rest his soul and yours.
A warm greeting from Kirchheimbolanden,
TOP SUPPORT OVER ALL THE YEARS
Thank you very much for the great support over the years.
THANKS TO FRACTAL AUDIO MY SEARCH FOR THE HOLY GRAIL OF GUITAR SOUND HAS COME TO AN END!
Good evening Jacques
If you really remember me and this is not just a copy-paste answer, I am very happy about that :-) To this day, I am always amazed by the great sound and the excellent effects of the Axe-Fx II. I don't think there is anything comparable anywhere in the world. Thanks to Fractal Audio, my search for the Holy Grail of guitar sound had come to an end.
Now I'm all tingly and can hardly wait to unpack the new FM3 and fire it up.
Hope to see you again sometime
M E G A ! THIS THING IS AWESOME!
The FM3 arrived today. Wow! Many thanks for the super-fast processing. Then I opened the package. I was very pleased with the contents. I quickly listened to the factory sounds and, after studying numerous videos, created my first own preset.
What can I say? MEGA! This thing is awesome. One thing's for sure: KÖNIGSBRUNN IS FM3!
Today I PLAYED for the first time in a very long time and didn't constantly try to make the sound even better. And that with a brand new device.
Thanks again for your service.
Stay healthy & many greetings,
BEST ORDER CONFIRMATION EVER RECEIVED!
Congratulations on the best order confirmation I have ever received! Proof that passion for the product is the best marketing manager.
THAT'S WHAT I CALL MORE THAN EXEMPLARY SUPPORT !
I just wanted to thank you for the great support of your staff, Knut and Markus.
They really do their job in more than exemplary fashion. They provided me with unbelievable help when I needed information about the FM3. My compliments to both of them. That's what I call support, others can take a leaf out of their book. Keep up the good work.
Best wishes and stay negative, Charly
MY GUITARS NOW SOUND BETTER AND THAT INSPIRES ME TO PLAY MORE AND BETTER
Just want to thank you! Your handling of my purchase of the FM3 has been a pleasure. It took some time for you to get the units to stock but that's not your fault. When they were delayed a couple of days you let me know by email. I appreciate that. When you got the units you sent me the paying details and 4 days after my payment I had the unit delivered. One or two of these days must have been bank business, so very fast delivery.
The FM3 itself is a fantastic piece of gear. Sounds much better than the previous modelers I have tried. (Headrush, Line6 Helix LT and Ampero One). The factory sounds in the FM3 are 90% nice sounding to me, whereas on all the other units it was the other way around, 90% crap!
One more thing: my FM3 came with the latest 4.0 Cygnus firmware that was just recently released. That was really impressive customer support!
I could go on with how my guitars now sound better than I thought was possible and how that inspires me to play more and better, but I'm sure you have heard that before. ??????
Have nice midsummer weekend
I AM SIMPLY THRILLED!!! 100% AMP FEELING - IT WAS MERCILESSLY COOL!
I wanted to give you a small interim report on the FM3. I am simply thrilled! The amp simulations are worlds better than those of the Helix. The feeling of "hanging" on a real amp is, in my opinion, 100% there. The interaction of the guitar, the volume pot of the guitar, it’s all really great!
Yesterday afternoon/evening was the first rehearsal with the FM3. It was mercilessly awesome and such good fun!
As for the FM9, Jacques, please keep my order open! When it is available > email me please!!! I mainly want to play the FM9 and have the FM3 with me as a back-up.
By the way: The German axefx.de forum is mega! I have already received VERY GOOD competent help there!!!! That is really impressive!
EXTREMELY SATISFIED WITH THE FM9 – THE HAMMER – BEST SOUND IN THE REHEARSAL ROOM !
Yes, I am totally thrilled... I've actually always been on the road with analogue. I don't notice any difference anymore. My band colleague Jörg B. also ordered an FM 3/FC6 set last week after hearing it. I'm extremely satisfied and thrilled with the FM 9... it's awesome... We had the best sound in a long time in the rehearsal room last night...
REACHED THE POINT!
This thing really is unbelievably good. A huge step forward:
The new dimensions compared to the previous model are very convenient for me personally. Less depth is extremely advantageous for transport and constant stage use. In my perfectly fitting case, the AxeFX3 is much more compact and easier to handle than its predecessor.
The quality of the components, the countless inputs and outputs, the new interface, the larger colour display, more intuitive operation, new editor software and much more. - Simply a huge step forward in every respect.
And finally, the most important thing - the sound! The sound quality is still improving with every new firmware. The new, more powerful processors combined with Cliff's tireless and never-ending innovations, ideas and brainstorms ensure that the Axe Fx3 is and remains unrivalled. No matter how big or small the gig, the sound is always right and it always sounds equally GOOD!!!
Summary: The new AXE-FX3 is the perfect tool for me - with minimal effort and only one device I get an official and reliable live and studio sound. Haven't owned an amp since the first Axe and now it's definitely reached the point where you don't need a 'real' amp anymore. Thanks for this.
A “FUTURE CLASSIC”
I am staggered by the amount of sonic possibilities that the unit offers, the range of amplifier models/effects/speaker cab impulse responses is massive and not one piece of emulated equipment is anything less than superb and to add up the cost of buying the range of modelled equipment in hardware would be…more money than you can shake a stick at ? Buy one.
Sell your car/dog/grandma/grandad, all your old amplifiers that need re-valving etc., and if you are not completely and utterly bemused by the brilliance of the AXE FX3, well then you did way too much headbanging in the 60’s/70’s/80’s.I took a huge gamble in purchasing a new AXE FX3 unit as I was originally shooting for a Mesa Triple Crown rack unit for recording purposes due to the emulated speaker outputs on the TC. However, having researched the AXE FX3 and been suitably impressed by on-line reviews and You Tube videos etc., I decided that although even MORE expensive than a Mesa TC (!!!) the AXE FX3 would offer more functionality for my home project studio… I was not wrong:
The AXE FX3 is quite simply stunning, in every department: build quality/sound quality/ease of use/natural “feel”, this unit excels and if I had the same choice again between the AXE FX3 and the Mesa Triple Crown, there would be no competition, definitely AXE FX3.
G66.EU have provided excellent service, I bought on-line with no difficulties and the after sales service has been excellent also. All in all, it is really difficult to envisage that AXE FX3 will ever be beaten and it is certainly destined to become a “future classic” and as such should hold value well and be a sound investment for any discerning musician serious about the music they wish to create-AXE FX3 is the best tool available certainly for recording all types of electric guitars/bass guitars but can also be used as a multi-purpose effects processor in any studio.

BEST DEVICE ON THE MARKET!!!
Short Axe-FX III report:
- - absolutely brilliant unit (sound & features are terrific)
- - perfect "all in one" device ( = sound & recording centre)
- - the best Axe-FX "format design" ever (3U and only 290mm deep)
- - visually a gem (with a super colour display)
- - handling: outstanding (much more user-friendly than previous models)
... a really worthwhile purchase, the best unit on the effects and modelling market!
PS: now only an FC-12 is missing for perfection, then I'm happy as a clam!!! ;-)
Viel Dank das klingt super !
Mein Bandkollege hat seinen Axe-Fx III gerade vor 2 Tagen von euch erhalten. Das Ding ist einfach nur der Hammer ! Nach all den Erfahrungen in Bezug auf Gitarrenamps und Preamptechnik in den letzten 5-10 Jahren haben wir noch nie etwas Vergleichbares gesehen und darum habe ich mich heute ebenfalls für einen Axe-Fx III entschieden. Und nebenbei euer Support läuft spitzenmässig, sind echt begeistert, weiter so !
liebe Grüsse aus dem Wallis ;)
Thank you very much!!! Everything worked out wonderfully, as always top service!!!!
The Axe Fx III really is mega... much more user-friendly and intuitive. The factory presets alone sound fantastic... I'm going to spend some time tweaking presets today :-)
Best regards from Munich,
ICH MACHS KURZ - MUSS WIEDER ZU MEINEM AXE-FX III
It has arrived in one piece and my wife has been grumbling since last night, owing to the fact that after opening the box and provisionally connecting two K&H MM201s, her husband has been squatting between the box and the dining room table and obviously no longer wants to take part in the general life of this house! Something like that, anyway... I'll keep it short:
I can't get the grin off my face!
Out of this world, phenomenally authentic and full of surprises.
So, there is no time for further communication.
I have to get back to my FX III!
Best regards and have a nice week,
THE EAGLE HAS LANDED: WHAT A BLAST!!!!
I hope you and the G66 team are well and having a wonderful time. Just wanted to check back in:
Axe FX3... The Eagle Has Landed!!! :o) What a blast!!!
Unbelievable!!! I can't get away from the box <3 - Switched our whole studio over to the Axe... it's practically the main audio unit in the studio now and has replaced my Universal Audio Apollo units! Wow! I can't wait to see what other goodies the future updates have in store.
Thank you so much for your amazing support, fast shipping and everything... ...I'm so happy to be part of the big Axe FX family and I'm sure... there's no turning back for me! :o)
I send you very warm and sunny greetings from the Bavarian Forest - The Axe FX 3 Jürgen :)

BEST AMP EVER!
You all definitely deserve the praise! I'm so excited because it all simply connects people through creativity and the open approach to ideas. (Forum, support, customer friendliness etc.)
That's what music should do and what moves it forward.
Keep up the good work!
Best amp ever!
Best regards back,
WAS ALWAYS A DIEHARD TUBE AMP PLAYER - THANK YOU !
I would like to say a quick THANK YOU for sending me the new Fractal Flagship. I have always been, and always will be, a diehard tube amp player, but what this thing does and how it sounds is absolutely fantastic. THANK YOU.
Have a sunny, nice weekend,
WHAT A TREASURE TROVE OF DREAM AMPS!
With the Axe III, Cliff has finally ushered in a new era that is comparable to the change from analogue to digital photography. My benchmarkS are the old Fender amps, which are so authentic here that I can't distinguish them from vintage amps with the best will in the world. And just try finding a Marshall 100 at that level in real life. That's as far as I've got, what a treasure trove of dream amps!
Thanks also for the nice goodies. I'll feed the chocolate to my students on Friday, dressed in my new favourite T-shirt!
AXE-FX III: ANOTHER STEP FORWARD !
good to hear from you! Thank you so much for the kind words and, as always, the incredibly fast delivery. The chocolate was the highlight, of course :-D But the Axe Fx is also something to behold. I've been sitting around playing with it all day. Who would have thought it, it's actually another step forward compared to the 2. I'm really looking forward to playing the first gig with it.
Oh, and of course I would also like to congratulate you on your son Eros Atomus, a great musician you have created!
Stay as you are and keep up the good work with your exemplary service! If only everyone were like that :-)
Many kind regards,
WHAT I HAVE EXPERIENCED IN THE LAST TWO DAYS, I HAVE NEVER EXPERIENCED BEFORE!
Good day Jacques,
As you know, enthusiasm for a product can have many different causes. It can come from the product itself or from the service. What I have experienced over the last two days is something I have never experienced before. Markus taught me the first real steps with the FX III through his competent (but above all his patient) manner. Jacques, thank you very much for your extension of the money-back guarantee. However, I will not have to make use of it. Markus has promised me his continued help. We will meet in person at the end of October to further explore the FXIII :-).
Kind regards from Nuremberg
BEST SERVICE IN THE MUSIC BUSINESS!
Thank you very much for the quick handling, and once again my compliments for the best service I have ever experienced in the music business - great!
have a nice day,
Thank You! Supergeil :)
Greetings at the moment from Switzerland...On the road again ;)
You too, take care and have a nice weekend!!
"The ones and zeros were back in the days not the way I thought music and especially guitar playing would end up being.
Now that it is more or less everyday life why not choose the best tools around, Axe-Fx II.
Its limitless opportunities makes life really enjoyable both live and in studio. No more cold nights in the bedroom ;)"
WHERE SERVICE IS CONCERNED:
THE ABSOLUTE BENCHMARK IN GERMANY!
You really are the best! I think where service is concerned you are the absolute benchmark in Germany.
Many thanks and have a great week,
IT'S A NO-BRAINER - WELL DONE!
I just wanted to thank you and the whole G66 team for your professionalism.
Thank you so much for the chocolates and goodies, and for the quick and careful delivery.
There's nothing to complain about, it's a flawless job, well done and thank you G66!
See you soon!
