    It gets warm, but no more than any poweramp should. The right half of the back panel which isn't shown has a big ass fan for ventilation and it does it's job well. Had my PodXTpro in the 2 spaces above it before I sold it with no problems :yesway:

    I'm mostly looking for straight up cash, sorry man. I might consider trades for drum or studio equipment though, as they're what's currently diverting my attentions (and money :lol:) away from guitar :(

    Convince me why I should buy this over an ART SLA 2 for my Axe Ultra.

    Bumpity bump!

    Roo, having never had the pleasure of spending some time with an Axe-FX I can't really comment in great detail. I believe it's the same as it was when I was running my XTPro with this though, people run valve poweramps to get some of the "feel" and colouration of the sound that they feel the modellers aren't providing and that tubes do. Not that I am comparing the axe to the XT in quality, but afaik some people prefer SS amps with their axe and some swear by tube amps. The choice is yours and yours alone Roo!

    Just ran it through UPS and Parcelforce's sites, looks like about £30 to ship to you. I rounded up the weight a bit (listed as 25lbs on the carvin site, so I rounded it to 30 just to be on the safe side once packaging is added) so it might be slightly less when actually shipping it. Haven't checked fedex but I imagine they'll be much the same. That's tracked and insured delivery, btw. :yesway:

    Someone make me an offer! I need monies :lol:
