Has anyone had the chance to play through the new AxeFX II yet.

Would really like to know if anyone has had the chance to dial in some Jerry tones.

I am on the waiting list and one click away from allowing my GAS win out over common sense and patience (i.e. spending money to skip the list and buy immediately).

GAS won out - I received the unit last night and have a pretty decent Jerry tone going already. Going to be dialing in some of the effects over the next few nights :-)

I'll try man - always try and avoid it given the caliber of players on this forum. I usually just post my stuff up on youtube so I can be lost in the sea of humanity :cool: The Axe FX II was certainly a pleasant surprise (in terms of getting a good tone dialed in quickly!). I'll try and get something up in the next couple weeks and give you a heads up.

Hope your summer is winding down nicely...peace bro :peas:

Probably not what either of us had in mind - no excuses - just lazy. Whipped out my iphone and broadcasted/recorded a little 35 mins session.

http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/17808559

Everything (except the last acoustic number) - was with the following:

Ibanez MC300 -> Axe-FX II (cab sims bypassed) -> Mcintosh MC 2105 -> 2 x JBL E-120

Really low volume (kids sleeping above me). I play with my work-in-progress mutron III and distortion (MXR style...more dialed in for an aggressive 80's terrapin jam vibe...not too suitable here).

As winter settles in I will likely have more time to get some better recording done.
