Axe FX II - A New Era Begins



Now that we now the truth, it's time to officially discuss about it. No more countdowns, no more mind games, this is the real ....!

Anyway, this seems MORE than promising...take a look here Introducing the Axe-Fx II





I'm a bit pissed off, though....anyone wanna buy my Ultra?

I'm very interested to hearing the difference between the ultra and this one.

Sounds a lot better. But is it?

Have a question about The Gospel or prayer request, PM me. Happy to help and God Bless!

Having an Ultra, and absolutely loving it, I completely trust Cliff and his work. If this is Axe Fx II, it surely is better.

Very interesting to see the whole Axe FX community pretty much turn on their Ultras while some of us here are dying for a Standard...

Cool dude. Very interested to hear it.

Just curious though? How similar is the Axe-FX to a real tube amp?

Like a 6505+ or Uberschall.

Does it still sound processed?

I've heard stuff but I feel like the real thing still sounds better.

Good to see someone made a strictly AxeFx II thread instead of the fractal countdown one.

Sooooo stoked I didnt buy an ultra yet! I didnt expect a new product to come out, but thats a good thing! I wont be out of the loop. Same with a phone. I'm thinking to wait for iPhone 5.

Now to save $$$.

I'm also quite suprised that this was released, seeing as AFX Ulta's are (were now) very high in demand.


I guess it goes to show that Cliff really cares about what he does, and wants to put out exactly what he has, as soon as it is ready.

ADD: the price is high. Probably the most I will spend on something in my life. But I guess its cheap compared to a diezel or other boutique amps, in which it will model...lol

As someone who owns a Diezel VH4 and an Axe-FX, the Axe-FX still can't nail a true Diezel VH4 tone.

Well obviously, im just really thinking about getting a axefx II.
I just don't want to shell out that much and then be bummed or bored with it later.

Just clarifying really.
No jab at you.

A lot of people also seem to put too much faith in the fact that it's a 'modeller'. Sure, it models other tones. Not 100% accurate, but good enough.
But it's capable of tones that no amp can really touch regardless.

I really just consider it an amp with adjustable preamp circuits.

And if the Axe-FX II can do more then the original, sign me the .... up.
