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...
Who's got them JBL impulse response files? Syx or wav- i have a helix and convert axe files to work with helix.
On the purchasing them note- has anyone tried the RedWirez cabs? They have a few JBL options- a fender 2x12 with d120's, a 2x15 with d130's and a marshall 4x12 with k120's.
Before I spend $9 I'd like to know what yall think on em. I can get a pretty good jerry sound out of the helix (mutron included) with the stock cabs of the helix but i'm definitely missing something there. If anyone wants to check out my jerry helix patch let me know- and if anyone has any other helix patches I'm always game to try em!
