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
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.
"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!
NOW I KNOW, IT CAN GET EVEN BETTER !
the FM3 arrived safe and sound yesterday and I was able to test it right away in the band rehearsal. What can I say...I was sure of my Helix...now I know that it can get even better ;-)
Big praise for your sales work! The fast shipping, the personal letter, and on top of that a box of chocolates...it doesn't get any better than that! Keep it up, keep it all the same!
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.
FRACTAL IS ABSOLUTELY THE BEST!
FM3 has arrived. What can I say… really great device! Sounds absolutely mega.
I've tried them all, Kemper (it's great too), Helix, Strymon, Simplifier, but Fractal is absolutely the best!
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 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
FRACTAL AUDIO IS T - H - E SOUND!
How nice it is to receive an email directly from the owner and thank you also for your personalised letter. Just wanted to give a quick update as your customer service is so great. FM3 arrived yesterday. I am honestly speechless. I am never stepping back to other gear and will now start selling my floor effects collection. The Fractal sound is T-H-E sound.
Thanks for everything,
THE BEST DEVICE ON THE MARKET!
Congratulations, you currently have the best device on the market.
Best regards from Kilchberg,
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,
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.
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
TOP SUPPORT OVER ALL THE YEARS
Thank you very much for the great support over the years.
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

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
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!
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 ;-)
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 ;-)
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!!!
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
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.
THE ELIS.8 HAS ENHANCED MY FM9 SIGNIFICANTLY - SOUNDS HUGE !
I didn't want to miss giving you some short feedback:
The speakers and pedal arrived here safe and sound a few days ago. I like the boxes very much and they enhance my FM9 considerably - a very good and inspiring sound. And indeed, the two small boxes sound at least as big as my Deluxe Reverb and, thanks to the FM9, also very authentic.
Many thanks for the excellent service!
YOU HAVE BY FAR THE BEST SERVICE OF ALL!
Great ! Exchange FM3 has arrived ! Many thanks :-)
You have by far the best service of all! In all seriousness!!
best regards Mathias
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,
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,
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,
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.
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!
