    he said "need" so i was guessing he was in a situation that called for either on short notice.

    I read it differently, but then I had the same experience he did with mine-the end of amp GAS. I literally have not played through any of my tube amps since I bought mine in early June (except to make profiles of them, which I need to do over again now that I've gotten more familiar with the profiler).

    When I start getting the itch for something different (which is unfortunately often for me), it's simply a matter of hitting the online rig exchange and poking around for a little bit until I've found profiles of the amp I was interested in, and then 'bam', it's there. Without even leaving the house.

    I've got my eye on those as well, but it wouldn't be until next summer if I do it. Between those two units you would have the means to get pretty much any sound you wanted. If I were still doing the gigging band thing, then I would probably just use my Mark V and call it done. But for home recording and my daily 'after work noodling on the couch to forget about all the stupid sh!t I had to deal with today' sessions, it really is a lot of fun to call up a preset that nails the sound and effects of a certain player or song and just get lost in it for a while.

    I haven't tried them, but my local store has them in stock (currently they have one in a custom hardwood cabinet). I'm afraid that if I tried it I'd want one, and that's just not good!

    No, but I know what kind of sounds they're capable of (mine is serial number 367, bought new a couple of months after they were released in 2009, so I've put the time in with it!). I'll have to hit YouTube and check her out.

    Yeah, she's definitely easy on the eyes. The miniskirts aren't what you normally see on blues players, that's for sure.

    She needs to change her surname. The name Popovic isn't a cool guitarist name.

    Having owned both, I'd go back to Fractal if I had to do it over again.
    I might too when the AX8 comes out.

    Both are absolutely fantastic, and their prices reflect that.

    For anyone not familiar with the newest age of digital modeling, get it out of you head that these things sound like a multi-effects processor from 1989. Far... FAR from it.

    Can't go wrong with either for both dynamic feel and sonic timbre. You just have to pick which platform you are willing to work with.

    The problem with the Axe Fx is that it becomes obsolete as soon as it leaves the store. What are they up to now Axe Fx 111 XXlX?
