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!
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
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
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.... ?
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
"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 :) ..
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!
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!
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 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.
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
FM9 TURBO - A MASTERPIECE !
Thank you very much for the package! I am overwhelmed by your service and the mobile possibilities of the FM9 Turbo. A masterpiece.
Best regards, Carlos
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
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,
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.

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,
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.
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,
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
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,
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 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 :)

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 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,
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.
COMPLETELY THRILLED - ALL HIGH EXPECTATIONS FULFILLED!
SOUNDS GREAT - EASY TO OPERATE !
After my autumn holiday I have now tested my Axe Fx extensively and wanted to give you some quick feedback (I'm not much of a test report writer):
I am completely thrilled, all (high) expectations have been fulfilled. Sounds great, easy to use!
Best regards from Preetz
I NEVER WAS SO EXCITED ABOUT NEW GEAR EVER
THE AXE-FX XL IS A REVOLUTION!
To all the good people at G66.eu,
I hope you are well. Thank you for making the unboxing/buying experience of the Axe-Fx extra special with your enclosed letter and chocolate. That was very considerate of you, and I really appreciate it.
I felt inclined to give you some initial feedback on my recently acquired Axe-Fx II XL+. Before buying I felt confident enough that the product was high quality, and I was planning to use it simply as an Fx-prosessor in front of my Tube-amps´ preamp to replace my pedals and freeing up floor space. But I was´t prepared at all for the fact that the sound quality is nothing but spectacular when used as a complete signal-way into active speakers.
I haven´t started looking into tweaking settings or experimenting with effects, these first three days I´ve just been admiring the tone it produces. It´s non-fatiguing, output volume is manageable in a way no tube amp can be, and it´s ridiculously touch-sensitive to play, hence works expertly when treated as a non-master volume amp as well. It´s rather hard to believe this is all coming from a digital processor. I just finished a two hour session of some Clapton, and the tone sucked me right in and kept me there.
I only wish I knew about this product earlier, as I would have saved myself the hassle of buying and selling my tube amps and pedals. Yes, even my Two-Rock is for sale today. If I was to take the Pepsi-challenge vs a tube amp I would probably be able to tell the difference, because it seems the Axe is somehow able to cancel out some noise from my single coils. I´m privileged to play both a Gibson CC#2 Goldie and other custom shop guitars which continue to impress me with their quality and craftsmanship, but the Axe-Fx is a revolution. If I was a producer of tube amps I would be concerned. Finally after scrolling nearly half-way through the presets, I would like to applaud you for having included the AFD100 preset, which is really good AFD tone. The Fender Bassman, Deluxe reverb, JCM800 and DC-30 also nails it if my memory of these amps serve me right.
In light of what this thing does, the price could be considered a bargain. I don´t think I have been this excited about new gear ever, so thank you for making it available to me.
