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,
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
I’LL BE STUCK IN FRONT OF THIS DAY AND NIGHT !
Wow, thanks for everything. As @metalbobby on Instagram I’ve played just a single preset and I’m in love already… man you guys are so great… this thing is amazing.
I’ll be stuck in front of this day and night.
Thanks for the quick delivery of the Axe-Fx III Mk2 and the firmware and so on.
All the best,
"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!
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

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.
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.
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 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!
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...
M E G A ! THIS THING IS AWESOME!
The FM3 arrived today. Wow! Many thanks for the super-fast processing. Then I opened the package. I was very pleased with the contents. I quickly listened to the factory sounds and, after studying numerous videos, created my first own preset.
What can I say? MEGA! This thing is awesome. One thing's for sure: KÖNIGSBRUNN IS FM3!
Today I PLAYED for the first time in a very long time and didn't constantly try to make the sound even better. And that with a brand new device.
Thanks again for your service.
Stay healthy & many greetings,
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,
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
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
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,
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,
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!
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 ;)
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
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,
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!!! ;-)
BEST SERVICE IN THE MUSIC BUSINESS!
Thank you very much for the quick handling, and once again my compliments for the best service I have ever experienced in the music business - great!
have a nice day,
GREETINGS & KISSES FROM SLOVENIA
Hi Sussi :)
This is just to let you know that today I received your shipment . Everything is OK and working as it should ... and as the Germans say : Alles ist in ordnung ! :)
Thank you very much for the personal note.
Give best regards and compliments from the happy and satisfied customer to the whole G66 team !
Best wishes and kisses from Slovenia. :)
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!
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.
