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
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
EVERY SECOND OF WAITING WAS WORTH IT – IT DOESN’T GET ANY BETTER THAN THIS!
the FM3 arrived yesterday! This thing is the absolute business. Every second of waiting was worth it. Thank you for the excellent and very personal service! It doesn't get any better than this.
Best regards from Hamburg
WOW.... NEVER HAD SUCH A GOOD SOUND! I AM A HAPPY GUITARIST!
Hi Jacques, I've had the FM9 since yesterday and just wanted to say a huge thank you! My wife Marion bought it from you as a surprise for me....and it was a real success. Great service and insane quality. I'm a happy guitarist. Wow....Have never had such a good sound.
Best regards / Timo
SERVICE RIGHTLY PRAISED EVERYWHERE
Thank you very much again for the parts you sent - they arrived yesterday, were installed today, and everything is working perfectly again. Your service is really excellent and rightly praised everywhere!
Thank you very much
one more fan :)
SERVICE IS A BLAST - NEVER EXPERIENCED SUCH GREAT CARE! FM9 IS MEGA!
thank you very much for your info. FM9 mega! Service 1+* and the Merci are already on my hips! :-) Your service is exemplary and absolutely great! I have never experienced such great care as with you. I appreciate it very much. THANK YOU!
I'll probably use the FM9 for the first time on Tin Lizzy this weekend. Marc is lending me his MF10 for testing purposes. Would probably be the ideal setup. If that's the case, I'll certainly be in touch again regarding the Redsound speakers. -As pleased as I am sorry ;-)))))))
Best regards from Turbo Borgstedt / Micha
I AM OVERWHELMED - FRACTAL AUDIO IS A WHOLE OTHER DIMENSION!
The reason I haven't contacted you yet is that I'm up to my ears in FX III ;-) . Apart from the fact that everything has arrived in one piece and is working, I would like to tell you that I am thrilled ... even more:
I am overwhelmed! I was already spoiled by the "Helix", but the machines from you/Fractal Audio are a completely different dimension.
First of all, I set up a few things on the "FX III" to suit my needs, adjusted the "FC-12" configuration and then, late yesterday afternoon, I started listening to the presets; I didn't get any further than no. 0030, as there are usually up to eight scenes each, but I am absolutely "blown away"!
And I also enjoyed "shopping" with you. You were very friendly and patient with me ... thank you very much, Jacques!
So, I’ll join the chorus of the many G66/Fractal Audio enthusiasts and remain ...
... with best regards
NEVER THOUGHT IT COULD BE SO U N B E L I E V A B L E !
To be honest, I would not have thought that this thing could be so UNBELIEVABLE...
I read a lot and informed myself on the net and then I came across Marco Fanton. His preset "Sky" was the deciding factor for me.
Well, it sounds awesome and is a lot of fun.
Have a nice week and see you then
SUPPORT THAT IS FASTER THAN YOU. EVEN AT THE WEEKEND !
I also wanted to thank you again for the quick handling of my problems with the FM3! A support that reacts faster than oneself and also on weekends. Apart from that, I am super satisfied with the FM3, for the price there is nothing better, more flexible or more ingenious on the market.
Thanks also for the tip about OMG-9. Your manuals are mega helpful and easy to understand. I will definitely test it.
Best regards, Tim
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!
BEST HANDLING WORLDWIDE!
FC-6 arrived, installed ... works! Once again, a thousand THANKS for the absolute best handling worldwide.
There is no other company where I prefer to buy.
Kind regards Nicolai
THE NICEST AND BEST SERVICE (AND NOT ONLY IN MUSIC)
Thank you very much for the nicest and best service I know (and not only in the music field))
And have a nice day,
A SPECIAL FEELING WITH G66!
I have to give you a huge compliment. I have already had a few questions about the FM3 and I have to mention that you always answer in a very short time: especially currently from Knut.
G66, simply a special feeling and a company that feels responsibility towards its customers!
MAINTAINING SPECIAL CUSTOMER PROXIMITY !
It's always a pleasure to hear/read from you. You have obviously been able to maintain this special customer proximity, which is great! The great device arrived quickly and has finally been in operation since this evening... :-)
Many thanks and best regards.
MY EXPECTATIONS FAR EXCEEDED – SPEECHLESS AND HAPPY!
iI thought and also hoped that the FM3 must be a good device ... but it has far exceeded my expectations, great sound and really nice presets, I am actually speechless and happy !!! Thank you very much for the fast delivery.
SOOOO EXCITED - SOUND BLEW ME AWAY!
I'm soooo excited about the AXE FX III..... especially the sound, which really blew me away - never thought I'd say that about a modelling device :)
I've been putting together a lot of presets with my favourite amps over the last few days, and I'm looking forward to being able to keep my hands on the guitar when I change my scenes and effects....
Best regards from Graz, Martin
KINDNESS AND PROFESSIONALISM ...
Thanks for your kindness and your professional, was a pleasure to deal with you. I will recommend this service to all my musician friends that intend to buy fractal products.
THIS THING IS JUST SOMETHING ELSE ENTIRELY!
My God, what a fantastic thing this is! And what fun it's been quickly playing through it!! The audio interface is great and the presets are just fun! The Kemper is not bad, but this thing is just something else entirely! Jacques, thank you very much!
Thanks for the chocolate, my wife will enjoy it!!
All the best and stay healthy!
I NEVER THOUGHT I WOULD BE CONVINCED SO QUICKLY!
first of all, many thanks for your nice mail. This transparency in the ordering process and these fine little details, like the chocolate, the T-shirt and the personal envelope are just great! Many thanks for that! I had ordered the FM3 as a B-stock, but it looks like new. :)
I've already been through a few things: HX Stomp, I have a Kemper here, but somehow I always miss something that my amps give me (Friedman and Morgan). With the FM3 it’s different: a much more transparent sound, logically structured despite its complexity and not that difficult to configure. I compared the FM3 Smallbox amp with my real Smallbox 50 earlier and the sound is spot-on. The Kemper couldn't capture this amp, the FM3 does.
I didn't think I'd be won over by this thing so quickly. Finally, proper mobile recording! :)
In any case, thanks for the great service. :)
Best regards from Berlin
NOT BEEN THIS EXITED SINCE GETTING MY AXE-FX II
Hi Hope your both well. New FM 9 arrived yesterday and it is working perfectly.It is an amazing piece of gear. Not been this exited since getting my Axe Fx ll.
Thanks for your support.
Best regards / John
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
THE FM3 REALLY KNOCKS THE AX8 STRAIGHT OUT OF THE REHEARSAL ROOM!
Hi dear Jaques,
after the first test: HAMMER... The FM3 really knocks the AX8 for six, straight out of the rehearsal room... thank you very much.
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
WE CAN TAKE A LEAF OUT OF YOUR BOOK WHEN IT COMES TO CUSTOMER SERVICE
Hello G66 Team,
Yesterday my FM3 arrived safely packed. On top of all the joy that I finally had the device in my hands, I would also like to say how pleased I was with the whole process.
As the sales manager of a large agency, I can judge that kind of thing very well. Beginning with the personally addressed e-mails and the positive statements about the FM3, from the word go it all feels very special. Furthermore, everything was delivered as promised and you can really rely on everything working out, while always being aware of all the order steps. Cool.
Then yesterday the package arrived with a very nice covering letter, with chocolate and a G66 T-shirt. I was thrilled about that too. You also included the latest software. Hats off to you.
All in all, it’s been a great shopping experience at G66. I was so impressed that I also spoke to our marketing department and our managing director here at Greven Medien GmbH about this positive experience and would like us to take a leaf out of your customer service book.
So, feel praised everyone! Thank you!
With kind regards,
"TRUE HAPPINES FOR GUITARISTS" REALLY WASN'T AN EXAGGERATION!!
Once again: congratulations on your sales approach! It really is fun to receive such a parcel with an envelope with your handwritten name on it. And then the enthusiastic letter. The quick start instructions deserve a special mention - meanwhile many have recognised the necessity for that kind of thing (with cheet sheets etc), but no-one before you has hit the nail on the head with important things being explained in a simple (but not too simple) way and without getting lost in too much detail. And the occasional reminders (look for a nice preset and play some guitar…) are the icing on the cake.
By the way, I have no idea how long I spent playing when I plugged the AXE-FX in for the first time, but it was a long time. Much longer than I actually had time for…. :-)
I'd like to take this opportunity to request a possible future update: given the huge amount of incredible and surprising presets, it would be very useful to be able to give a "like" at the touch of a button. Especially when zapping through the presets looking for a particular sound, you often stumble across something that you would like to use later, but generally have a guitar in your hands and not a pencil….!
Yes, there are favourites banks for this, but it would be good to be able to have the favourites in a big pool before sorting through them more carefully. Of course, it might well be that this function already exists and I'll discover it when I study the manual more closely…
Anyway, I have come to the conclusion that I can now part with my remaining digital and synth stompboxes, as the AXE really has everything in it. (Only the Gamechangeraudio devices will have to stay - they simply look too good and I think the PLUS functionality is already in the AXE…..?)
Unfortunately, the AXEFX will soon be disappearing into the rack at the rehearsal room and I won't be able to spend every evening exploring its possibilities on the sofa!
So, once again many thanks for the quick delivery, etc.
True happines for guitarists really wasn't an exaggeration!
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,
40 YEARS OF MUSIC - NEVER GOT SUCH GOOD SERVICE BEFORE!
I wanted to tell you that I found the entire conversation with you in connection with the AXE FX III MK 2 not only very pleasant and refreshing, but also personal and binding. It's impressive that you take the time to get to know your customers’ backgrounds. I hope you also had some fun in the process. The absolute highlight, however, was that when I unpacked the device I thought, hey, you’ve even included the USB cable (which is not the case with all dealers / products) and oh, what's that big fat red instruction manual in the box? ;-)
I've been making music for 40 years and I've certainly invested one or two large sums in equipment, but I've never received this "service". Crazy! MERCI!
Gladly again! Best regards
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 ;-)
THE AXE FX REALLY IS THE GAME-CHANGER!
Really looking forward to the FM3! The AXE FX really is the game-changer it's made out to be.
What could be better than always having these grandios sounds with you in a compact format?
Your unbeatable customer service completes the package!
Have a great weekend and best regards,
I AM ABSOLUTELY THRILLED!
Many thanks for the record-breaking speed with which you sent me the FM3.
I am absolutely thrilled! Many thanks also for the tasty addition! Of course, I immediately started to explore the FM3. I think my family will have to do without my presence for a while;). I have printed out the excellent user manual and will work through it bit by bit. The tutorials on your site are also very helpful, especially those by Bernd Kiltz. It's fun to get to know the device with its many sounds and possibilities. I will soon be able to do without my tube amps and stomp boxes once I have mastered the FM3 and configured it for my needs.
Best regards to Flensburg
