Re: What to get? Legacy 3 or Axe-FX?
I'm sort of old school in that I'm an "amp" guy. I say real amp with a nice effects unit. Although I've never played a Legacy of any kind, it is an all tube amp, which means nice, organic analog overdrive. To me, that is a solid "tone" foundation. As for me, I have a Soldano SLO head which will forever be my go to amp, but I do use a TC electronic Gmajor 2 in its loop for versatility for my top 40 band. Then again, I've never played through this AXE FX unit....but I do know that every other digital distortion unit I've ever tried over my many years,,,and it has been a lot,,,,has left me cold in the "playing response" department. Maybe this unit has fixed that disconnect,,,,I don't know. But I'm able to play my best with a real tube amp and addicted to the way it responds, and I'm not switching for anything.
