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
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.
YESTERDAY I BEGAN TAKING APART MY PEDAL BOARD!
I spent a long time convincing myself - over the last 15-20 years I've collected a large number of amps and pedals…even dealt in them (www.hiddennotes.de) and after a couple of days with the FM3, yesterday I began taking apart my pedal board…what I want to say is, what a fantastic product!
I'm totally addicted and asking myself why I didn't try it ages ago…but better late than never, right?
All the best and catch you soon;)
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,
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’M 100% CONVINCED ABOUT THE AXE-FX 3 AND DON’T MISS MY MARSHALL IN THE LEAST!
Sorry it’s taken so long to get back to you. Many thanks for the Axe-Fx III.
First off I need to explain: I’ve been playing the guitar for 32 years, so I grew up with tube amps. In December last year my Marshall JVM410HJS gave up the ghost. As getting it repaired is kind of difficult just now, I had to fall back on my FX2, which up to now had just been used in the effects loop of the Marshall. I had never bothered to check out the amps or cabs. Then I started experimenting and what I managed to achieve made me very curious.
Soon I was convinced that I needed an FX3!!! Just unpacking it was a pleasure and I felt like a little kid ? The packet of Merci was a nice surprise! A very high-quality product, lovingly packed!
After a month of exhaustive testing and experimentation I’m 100% convinced about the FX3 and don’t miss my Marshall in the least! I can recommend the FX3 to anyone. I’ve even gone so far as to put my name on the waiting list for an FM3 and I very much hope it will be deliverable soon.
I can’t wait ? Whatever happens, kudos to you all and keep up the good work, also with the tutorials, which I have found very helpful, especially those from Bernd Kiltz and Marco Fanton.
Many thanks and greetings to Flensburg,
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
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.
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
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...
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
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!!!
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,
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
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,
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.

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,
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.
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!
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,
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 ;)
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!!! ;-)
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!

TOTALLY IMPRESSED – IT’S FULFILLED MY HIGHEST EXPECTATIONS!

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!
