Vic,

Why the change? Just to downsize your rig?

Carry it in with one hand, sets up in (literally) two minutes, sounds the same every night. Win-win. Especially when you are as old as I am :shock: ... I can't carry that 100-lb. cabinet around no more.

Clean and overdrive sounds ...



It's not the same as having the JBLs and the whole rack, etc., but I hear myself better and can concentrate on the playing.

Well, got my new AX8 just before the snow storm so Im stuck here in the basement messing with for a few days looks like. I have been in love with my little Swart combo and 76' Fender vibrolux for the past few years... two very nice amps that I wont be letting go of anytime soon... but I am really blown away by this thing. Running stereo through a pair of qsc K10s it sounds very nice and am just getting started with tweaking. Im with vic on the ease of set-up. Believe it or not I have been interested in minimizing the amount of pieces I have, carry and use so here is one box that takes the place of all my pedals, amps and a whole mess of cables and power supply nonsense. I love it!

Plus its great through head phones hooked up to my interface. Endless options... the amp models sound and feel great... other nice feature is the amplifier style knobs for quick control of typical tone shaping stuff like gain and eq.

Lots to learn before I can get everything I want out of it ... I want to create separate rigs/presets for each different guitar I use (start, tele, arch top and acoustic) of course... Im definitely in love with this thing...

thanks for the info as always guys.

Take a look at the Kemper and Helix. Between the three, you should be able to find a good fit.
