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
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!
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
PURE ENTHUSIASM / THE BEST DECISION EVER !
We had a small rehearsal concert at the weekend. A total of 6 bands played. My sound was praised to the skies from all sides. So glad! I am really extremely happy with the FM9. It was the best decision ever! Really a super product that you are selling
Very best regards / Thomas
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 ;-)
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
THE BEST DEVICE ON THE MARKET!
Congratulations, you currently have the best device on the market.
Best regards from Kilchberg,
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,
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
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
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.
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;)
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
THANKS TO FRACTAL AUDIO MY SEARCH FOR THE HOLY GRAIL OF GUITAR SOUND HAS COME TO AN END!
Good evening Jacques
If you really remember me and this is not just a copy-paste answer, I am very happy about that :-) To this day, I am always amazed by the great sound and the excellent effects of the Axe-Fx II. I don't think there is anything comparable anywhere in the world. Thanks to Fractal Audio, my search for the Holy Grail of guitar sound had come to an end.
Now I'm all tingly and can hardly wait to unpack the new FM3 and fire it up.
Hope to see you again sometime
IN THE MUSIC BUSINESS FOR OVER 30 YEARS BUT I HAVE NEVER EXPERIENCED ANYTHING LIKE THIS!
I am impressed. I've been in the music business for over 30 years now, and I've NEVER experienced such friendly and competent advice and handling.
Congratulations and thank you that there are people like you who do such a great job!
BY THE WAY, THE ELIS.8 ARE A REAL HIT!
Thank you very much for your information and once again a big thank you for being so accommodating. Your customer orientation is simply exemplary! By the way, the Elis.8 are a real hit and perfect for my plans.
Many greetings from the south, have a good time and see you next time,
EXCELLENT SIMPLY TOP CLASS - IN LOVE WITH THE FX III TURBO!
Just to give you some feedback: I spend hours every day with the FX III Turbo - I'm totally in love with it! The workflow is so logical, and although very complex, absolutely flawless. I have not encountered a single bug or the like. I am glad that I spontaneously decided in favour of the "TURBO" when talking to you! I have never exceeded 65% workload at any time.
So: excellent, simply top class. It is easy to understand why the FX III Turbo is used by top musicians and in studios. I am happy to be able to work with it as a little guitar lover and amateur axe torturer.
I wish you and your family a good time and good health!
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!!!
NOT ONLY EXCELLENT HARDWARE, ALSO FIRST-CLASS CUSTOMER SERVICE !
I wouldn't have expected that. Thank you very much for this! You not only have excellent hardware, but also first-class customer service.
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,
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,
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,
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 ;-)
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!
I CRIED WITH JOY WHEN I TRIED IT OUT!
Hello Jacques ,
It's true, Simmozheim has gone Turbo!
Thank you very much, I cried like a baby with joy when I tried out the Axe-Fx III Turbo!
I have now ordered the FC-12 online together with Humbuster cables. I hope you can send it to me as soon as possible!
Greetings from Simmozheim, Adrian
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
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.
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
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!
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
