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.
IMPRESSED HOW MUCH MORE ACCESSIBLE THE AXE-FX III IS WITH THE FC-12
Hi Sussi and team,
FC-12 arrived safely today, perfect. Really impressed with it and how much more accessible the axe-fx iii is with this controller. Brilliant.
Thanks again / Dan
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
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.
TOP SUPPORT OVER ALL THE YEARS
Thank you very much for the great support over the years.
"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,
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.
THE BEST DECISION OF MY LIFE AS A MUSICIAN !
That was the best decision of my life as a musician to switch to AXE FX III, FC6 & 12 and now 3 EV's - this system is simply great, it's a lot of fun and I'm looking forward to putting it all together with the ELIS - because then I'll be complete.... ?
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
THE BEST DEVICE ON THE MARKET!
Congratulations, you currently have the best device on the market.
Best regards from Kilchberg,
THE MOMENT WHEN YOU PLUG IT IN AND GAPE!
Hi Jacques und Sussi!
Many thanks for the quick delivery of the FM3. Simply sensational how beautifully you packaged the thing, added a very nice welcome letter, packed a T-shirt and even a bar of Merci. More is not possible (-: Thank you!!!
And then the moment when you plug it in and gape! The short version is: I sold my Helix Floor yesterday (-:
Best regards from the Ruhrpott
Good luck ! Rainer
AXE-FX IS SUCH A GOOD MACHINE – BETTER THAN ANYTHING ELSE !!!!!
thank you very much for your effort! It worked. The Axe Fx III is such a good machine – BETTER THAN ANYTHING ELSE !!!!!
All the best, Jakub!
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!!!
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
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!
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!
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.
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
THE FM3 IS SURELY IN A DIFFERENT LEAGUE AT THE MOMENT!
The "Guitarist’s Delight FM3" arrived here safe and sound today and I would like to thank you most sincerely for the nice little attention to detail – in the form of a box of MERCI. Not everyone does this, but it's a lot of fun to deal with people who are so cool! Thanks again for this attention!
About the equipment – what can I say? - I have had many things. From Line 6 Series to Eleven to Headrush Gigboard and Kemper. The FM3 is surely in a different league at the moment (although I also really appreciate the sounds of the Kemper, but that's a different method) and I can't get a big, stupid grin off my face ;)
Now I think I'll save up a bit, because there's still room in my studio desk for one or the other 19" built-in unit - so why not the big brother of the FM3?
Thanks again and best regards from Prellenkirchen, in the far east of Austria.
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,
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
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
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 ;-)
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
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
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
Good morning G66-Team,
I wanted to give you some quick feedback. Quite apart from the fact that the ordering process worked brilliantly and quickly, and that I'm thrilled with the Axe FX 3 after the first few days, it's the little things around it that really stand out. It starts with the idea of the T-shirt, continues with a handwritten name on the envelope, and ends with the Merci pack. That's what I call a positive customer experience. Simply great!
Many greetings and have a nice weekend,
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 ;-)
AMAZING - NOW I CAN SELL EVERYTHING!
Thanks a lot, tried the FM3, amazing, I’m very happy. Had Boss Gt-1000 and Lexicon PCM81 and many floor pedals before, now I can sell everything😀😀.
