I NEVER WAS SO EXCITED ABOUT NEW GEAR EVER
THE AXE-FX XL IS A REVOLUTION!
To all the good people at G66.eu,
I hope you are well. Thank you for making the unboxing/buying experience of the Axe-Fx extra special with your enclosed letter and chocolate. That was very considerate of you, and I really appreciate it.
I felt inclined to give you some initial feedback on my recently acquired Axe-Fx II XL+. Before buying I felt confident enough that the product was high quality, and I was planning to use it simply as an Fx-prosessor in front of my Tube-amps´ preamp to replace my pedals and freeing up floor space. But I was´t prepared at all for the fact that the sound quality is nothing but spectacular when used as a complete signal-way into active speakers.
I haven´t started looking into tweaking settings or experimenting with effects, these first three days I´ve just been admiring the tone it produces. It´s non-fatiguing, output volume is manageable in a way no tube amp can be, and it´s ridiculously touch-sensitive to play, hence works expertly when treated as a non-master volume amp as well. It´s rather hard to believe this is all coming from a digital processor. I just finished a two hour session of some Clapton, and the tone sucked me right in and kept me there.
I only wish I knew about this product earlier, as I would have saved myself the hassle of buying and selling my tube amps and pedals. Yes, even my Two-Rock is for sale today. If I was to take the Pepsi-challenge vs a tube amp I would probably be able to tell the difference, because it seems the Axe is somehow able to cancel out some noise from my single coils. I´m privileged to play both a Gibson CC#2 Goldie and other custom shop guitars which continue to impress me with their quality and craftsmanship, but the Axe-Fx is a revolution. If I was a producer of tube amps I would be concerned. Finally after scrolling nearly half-way through the presets, I would like to applaud you for having included the AFD100 preset, which is really good AFD tone. The Fender Bassman, Deluxe reverb, JCM800 and DC-30 also nails it if my memory of these amps serve me right.
In light of what this thing does, the price could be considered a bargain. I don´t think I have been this excited about new gear ever, so thank you for making it available to me.
THE GREATEST PRODUCT I EVER BOUGHT!
Hello Sussie and G66, and thank you for the greatest product I ever bought! I have played it for a couple of hours now and are absolutely stunning about this thing.
I have a couple of modified Marshall pre-amps that I thought had a good sound (they have), but this thing is killing them ;) I also have an modified JCM800, but I’m thinking about sell all that equipment now, all my Marshall’s are modified by Tommy Folkesson here in Sweden, he is a known amplifier modifier.
I AM ABSOLUTELY BLOWN AWAY! WONDERFUL CUSTOMER SERVICE!
Thought I would tell you that My axe arrived today and I can tell you I am absolutely blown away! Also thank you very much for the chocolates and the t-shirt! That was a lovely surprise for me when I opened the box! You have really provided wonderful customer service. I'll be recommending G66 to all my musician friends.
Thanks for the great service!
FREIZEIT UND HOBBY SOWAS VON
I don't think I've been in touch for a year, but now it's time again, because I'm reading the article about Quantum:
- Fractal Audio is incredible
- the free updates are incredible
- my free time and my hobby have become so much richer.
WAS SERVICE ANBELANGT:
DEUTSCHLANDWEIT DIE REFERENZKLASSE SCHLECHTHIN!
Du/ihr seid der Wahnsinn! Ich glaube ihr seid deutschlandweit die Referenzklasse schlechthin was Service anbelangt.
Vielen vielen Dank und eine tolle Woche
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 ;)"
TOTALLY IMPRESSED – IT’S FULFILLED MY HIGHEST EXPECTATIONS!
SOUNDS SUPER – SIMPLE TO USE.
After my autumn holiday I’ve finally tested the Axe-Fx properly and wanted to provide some short feedback (I’m not the long-review-writer type):
I’m totally impressed; all my (high) expectations have been fulfilled. Sounds super, simple to use!
All the best from Preetz,
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,
I AM SO HAPPY TO BE PART OF THE AXE FAMILY!
Friday was the day: the Axe arrived on my doorstep, and I felt like a little kid at Christmas when I unpacked it :-)
Thank you very much for the incredibly adorable packaging with all the trimmings. It was great fun to be surprised by all the contents of the package ;-)
Well, and now for the Axe:
It sounds really great. That sparkle in the highs with the clean sounds or the awesome growl of the Recto1 Orange Modern...wow.... And there are so many other good sounding amps. It will probably take a while until I find my sounds :-)
Within a short time I found my way around the basic functions and the operation and started playing with joy (Friday and Saturday flew by :-)). Of course, the possibilities are enormous and it will probably take a while before I can fully exploit the potential for myself.
I've also tried out the Axe Edit software and really like it.
Overall, I would like to thank you and the whole team for the great service. I have always felt well looked-after and informed. I think it's great how personal the contact with you is, even if we only communicate via e-mail.
I'm very happy to be part of the Axe family now ;-)
With this in mind, keep up the good work!
