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
THAT'S WHEN YOU KNOW WHY YOU STAY LOYAL TO G66
Hi Jacques – I would like to thank you again.
On the one hand for the fast delivery, on the other hand for the accommodating and speedy repair of my AX8 – that's when you know why you remain loyal to G66!
Best regards, Haiko
ABSOLUTE BUSINESS AND I AM SO SUPER, SUPER SATISFIED
Hello dear Jacques,
First of all, I would like to get in touch and tell you how great the AxeFX III MK2 is. It's really unbelievable - I use everything from jazz guitars, acoustic guitars, Strat guitars and Gibson guitars to classical guitars and baritones!
It really is the absolute business, and I am so super super satisfied with this device. Especially for online lessons or studio productions like gigs and theatre productions (which I don't have at the moment?) the thing is actually running 10 hours a day for me.
Wow!!!!!????? I turn it on every day with enthusiasm.
Best regards from Steinmauern

MY GREAT EXPECTATIONS HAVE BEEN GREATLY EXCEEDED !
Thank you very much for the incredibly fast delivery and the cap that came with the T-shirt. It really made me very happy. Please excuse me for not getting back to you until now, but on the day of delivery I found out that I was going to be a father, so a few things just had to take priority at first.
First of all, I have to praise you for the incredible foresight to include a mega pack of Merci (you know how to keep women quiet ;-)).
What can I say. As an owner of Mesa Boogie, Engl and Marshall amps, all the good "modellers" of the time, Avid-Eleven Rack, Kemper and various plug-ins, I have to admit that my expectations for the AXE-FX were great, but they were vastly exceeded. I'm actually considering selling my dearly beloved Triaxis 2:90 combo from MesaBoogie and all the other stuff along with it.
The level of detail, the response, it’s as if I were playing the real amp. For me, the Triaxis has always been the holy grail as far as my tone is concerned. Over 20 years in use and it has never let me down. The AXE alone comes close to 100%. It’s only the modes of the 2:90 power amplifier that I couldn’t feel yet (Deep/Modern/half Drive) but with some time I am sure I’ll get to the same result. The possibilities in the AXE are probably given.
I won't even begin to talk about the other possibilities. It's almost unbelievable if you haven't experienced it and I'm really very fussy about sound and feel. No other modeller has ever given me this feeling.
I've been at FOH for over 20 years for many acts from small to large and have been running a small studio for over 10 years. More for nostalgic and non-profit intentions. The bands that record with me are more from the up-and-coming scene and I try to support them as much as I can and give something back to the scene here.
I bought the AXE mainly for my private pleasure, but it will make my work with the bands much easier. Anyone who has miked real boxes knows what I mean :-)
All in all, and in conclusion, many, many thanks again for the great package you have put together. Keep up the good work, that's exactly what good customer service is all about. The information that it is being checked, packed and shipped, and all that with a personal address, makes you feel a bit more important and not like just another customer.
Continued success and stay with us for a long time.
Best regards from Spessart to Flensburg, where the driving licences live ;-)
FANTASTIC - MEGA BIG GRIN – BLOODY FINGERS !
You are really cool!!! Thanks a lot for the chocolate and the fast shipping!!! Because of the Xmas business, I didn't expect to receive the device until the next few days. And the first impression is: fantastic!!! Yesterday I played my fingers bloody while listening to the presets and I have a MEGA big grin on my face!
All the best and best wishes from the coast to the coast!
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 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.
NOT CUSTOMERS, BUT FANS!
Many thanks also for the sweet surprise, the great T-shirt and the short instructions for beginners... I will probably need them quite a bit at first.... and only call in an absolute emergency.
Great praise for a great service and a very customer-oriented approach.
That's why you don't really have "customers", but fans... Today you got one more!
Many greetings from the Rhineland
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!
I have been the proud owner of the Axe FX III for a little over 3 weeks now and I am simply overwhelmed. The thing is better, sharper, more detailed, clearer, more qualitative, more impressive... than I could ever have imagined. Simply WOW! Thank you very much for the easy purchasing process and the goodies!
All the best to you and the team and stay healthy!
GUITARIST’S DELIGHT...A TOTAL UNDERSTATEMENTG.
I didn't want to bother you again, since you probably get 1,000 e-mails. But just one more time: I was already totally thrilled with my Axe-Fx II Mark II, but this is simply UNBELIEVABLE. I have no words for this: guitarist's delight... a total understatement.
Thanks so much for listening!
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,
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.
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,
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
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,
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
AT THE END OF DAY I WAS BLOWN AWAY!
My package arrived today at the end of the day and I was blown away!
Not only for the amazing piece of gear but also for all the care that you guys put on the order: cool guides, nice "thank you" letter, the t-shirt and if all of this was not nice enough, I got a box of chocolates!!!
You made my day. Now I'm "playing" with my unit trying to unveil all the secrets behind it....
Thank you very much from a happy customer.
EXTREMELY WELL-EQUIPPED GUITAR SHOP FOR ME ALONE – REALLY GENIAL!
Simply unbelievably good! I've been enjoying the fantastic sound in the rehearsal room for 4 hours.
The FM3 is very easy to use (I can't understand the reviews on the net, it couldn't be simpler and more flexible): Pick amp and cap, add a bit of reverb, tremolo in front of the amp, an analogue delay behind it, a drive in front of it, gate between amp and cap, EQ behind it, a bit of treble off, a bit less bass, add a phaser. What can I say? Within half an hour I had such a grandiose setup with 6 scenes that I've been enjoying it ever since and can't get enough of playing.
I just turned on the MF.10 (with ear protection) (output at +4 dBu). What a riot! I think that should really be enough volume reserves for any situation. I'm flabbergasted...
For the next few weeks I'll have to "rummage" through the range of amplifiers and caps ;-) I feel like I have an extremely well-equipped guitar shop all to myself. Really ingenious!
Thanks for the checkup and the update. The box is running perfectly! By the way, the cooler hasn't started up once in the 4 hours (or so quietly that I didn't hear it during the breaks in playing). Here are a few impressions and greetings from the rehearsal room.
PS: Always G66 and always Fractal! Recommendations are absolutely guaranteed!
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
"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!
WITH YOU ONE FEELS SIMPLY AT HOME - SERVICE A DREAM
Today my big guitarist's delight arrived at my place and what can I say?! You guys are amazing!!!
On top of this magnificent instrument, your service is a dream. Starting with that nice personal email. After the order was placed, the delivery was fast. I had the feeling that you knew beforehand that I was going to order and sent everything on its way ;-).
Everything is perfectly packed. The devices are checked in advance and not just blindly sent to the customer.
That's exactly how I imagine it and that's exactly how you make customers happy :) And for all the sweethearts there is also a little surprise.
It just feels like an adoption by G66 and you have been warmly welcomed. You simply make me feel at home.
Thank you very much and stay as you are ;)
Best regards to the far north :) ..
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
DAMN IT, THIS IS CRAZY
Damn it, this is crazy! The new AxeFX is exactly what I had hoped for - only even better!
Having skipped the second generation this is a real quantum leap for me. It all just sounds so real!
I may just be a very average guitarist, but it is such good fun being able to at least sound like a great one - with all the sounds we know and love from our favourite bands! Now I can finally hear just how different my guitars really sound...
And so far I've only tried out a few of the factory presets and changed very little.
Fantastic! Sorry, have to stop writing... there's a guitar to play ?!
I wish you and your team a great week!
All the best,
THE SOUND BLOWS YOU AWAY!
I am still very enthusiastic about the fm3. It's one of those few products where you always find an answer already built in, even if it took you months to formulate the question in the first place.
But apart from the technical fascination, it's simply the sound that blows you away. You're right, this thing is just a little happiness maker.
Many greetings to the north!
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,
SOUNDS I HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR FOR OVER 40 YEARS
After intensive familiarisation with this wonderful AXE FXIII system and the FC6 and FC12 controllers, I have to admit after just under 3 weeks - sensationally good, and I can realise exactly the sounds that I have been looking for for over 40 years. The money I could have saved, not to mention all the lugging around of various tube amps and 4x12 cabinets… Super classy and extremely addictive - you just can't drag yourself away. You are absolutely right - this really is a guitarist's delight - thank you for it.
Kindest regards and stay healtyh
FRACTAL IS ABSOLUTELY THE BEST!
FM3 has arrived. What can I say… really great device! Sounds absolutely mega.
I've tried them all, Kemper (it's great too), Helix, Strymon, Simplifier, but Fractal is absolutely the best!
ELIS.8 - WHAT AN AWESOME SOUND!
Good evening Jacques,
I have only now found the time to test the Elis 8 speakers...
What can I say...? What an amazing sound... super differentiated, room-filling, powerful...
I am really thrilled and very grateful!!!
I won't give these two away anymore!!!
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
