Axe-FX III first impressions in Amps Posted March 5 · Edited March 5 by SteinbergerHack The Fractal Axe FX III Mk 2 showed up yesterday. Four main impressions: 1) This is a well built piece of equipment. 2) A single-page quick-start guide would be a really good idea. 3) There are some great modelling sounds in the box, but it's going to take some serious effort to coax them out. Not as easy and quick as the Kemper, but the flexibility is clearly there to do just about anything you want. 4) The FX in this thing sound absolutely incredible.
