I've seen a lot of threads listing Axe FX with recordings etc and a number of bands are listing them as major gear. So it's led me to wonder if a lot of metal musicians are abandoning the traditional amp thing both in the studio and on the road. I know that it makes for a lot of convenience in being able to write/record at home without studio bills or neighbour/family/police fury and I accept that they do sound amazing from all recordings I hear. But where's the love for amps gone? Has it gone? Am I reading too much into this? Answers on a postcard to the above address, please!* *It's not a criticism, just a curious question.
