Re: What to get? Legacy 3 or Axe-FX?
I used to be a "tube amp snob" and salivated over names such as Matchless, Fuchs, 65Amps, etc. I had a collection of boutique pedals worth more than my car, and I wouldn't even piss on a rack effects unit. But a while back I was given a gently used Digitech GSP-2101 Artist Studio Tube preamp multi-effects unit in trade. Against my better judgement I plugged into it...and wouldn't you know, I'm hooked!! Although its 18-year-old technology, I'm having more fun with this fu*king thing than I ever thought imaginable. I even went out and bought a rack and Mesa 20/20 power amp to run it!!
So, if the Axe FX is anything like the Digitech...GO FOR IT!! I realize the AxeFX is totally SS where my Digitech uses two 12AX7 for preamp, but the sound clips I've heard from the Fractal site are SWEET...it doesn't seem to have that sterile Line-6 solid state sound.
I just wish the local GC carried the Fractal stuff so I could demo it.
