As per usual, FrankV is on the money. I was in your position last year. I was in desperate need of a more compact solution. I was tired of lugging my 70 pound JTM45 and my pedal board in and out of a wide array of dive bars only to be limited in the sound I was getting. I wanted to something lighter, more eclectic and more reliable than my JTM45. After doing months of research, I went with the Kemper. Why? Well one, I really liked that one sound I was getting from my JTM45 and I wanted to make sure I could model it and keep an exact copy of it. Two, I liked how convenient it is for live use. And finally, I loved the fact that I could play anybodies modeled amp on the Rig Exchange. Now, those are the reasons I picked the Kemper. But those reasons may not apply to you. It may be that the AxeFX is what you need, and that's fine. I almost feel like telling you not to sweat it, that you can't go wrong with either. I won't tell you that because these amps are upwards of $1300 and the mere mention of that much money makes my butthole pucker up. But my point still stands. Fractal and Kemper are really, really, really, good at what they do. Either way you're gonna get some kick ass tones that you'll be very happy with.
