    Axe FX 2 with controller for Helix Floor?

    Hey guys, So I posted up my Helix on the local CL and I have someone offering a Axe 2 with controller for a trade...It look like resale for both units is pretty similar, minus the controller. Does anyone have experience with the 2? what are some of the differences between the 2 and 2XL? And...

    Powered Kemper in my possesion

    Well, I have a powered Kemper rack and controller, and its rad! Running it into the Orange 2x12 with cabs disabled. Man, I really missed certain things about these units, mainly vox tones. Vox sounds strangely good even thru a unorthodox cab choice. When I get back from my vacation trip...

    Done with apple.

    Man oh man am I hot :laugh2: So I have been invested in the apple ecosphere for a few years now, having Iphones and Macbooks and an apple watch. Well my apple watch glass popped, cracking around the entire perimeter after 8 months of ownership. So I had it sent in, under warranty after talking...

    Alternatives to FRFR explored (badcat unleash)

    So I have a new toy, a bad cat unleash V2. I had purchased this for my tube amps, but realized there was more potential on tap via the effects loop of the badcat... I plugged my Helix into the effects loop of the unleash and fed it to my Orange 2x12. I really like this setup :D I found that the...

    Want to hear from powercab users. NCD update.

    So I'm ready to do the deed. I sold off my QSC k8's a while back, and I'm looking at both the xitone mbritt and the line6 power cab. I know the xitone will be fantastic, and many claim the optional open back really helps with the "amp in a room" feel. the Powercab claims the same thing by...

    I only rode my motorcycle twice this year...(on dirt)

    ...And they were both captured on film! My long time friend Charley does video production for a living, and he started a side project this year revolving around Adventure/ADV riding and photography. His series is called Out on Scout and it's been fun having been involved a little bit. My...

    Gibson RD 2018 pickup advice... not enjoying the stock actives!

    Hey guys! I have picked up a used 2018 RD 40th and I love the guitar a lot! very ergonomic and comfortable, a nice surprise since I've never had any offset guitar designs before. I'm not a fan of the active GEM pickups, however... I am using this guitar for heavier rock, but I'm quite used to...

    Another cab question (chaining cabs together)

    So I have the orange 2x12 with two jacks( I'm assuming to chain to another cab) rated at 16 ohms and another 2x10 cab rated at 16 ohms. I believe that running them together like this would result in an 8 ohm load, but I'm nervous that I'm mistaken and would have 32 Ohms. What's the deal here? I...

    Orange amps rant.

    Why the hell do they not come with footswitches?!? I ordered a 2 button one for my Rockerverb and the footswitch doesn't come with cable either, so now I have a useless switcher until I can get the cables :run: Just put the damn cables in with the switch, ya cheap bastards! :laugh2: That's...

    Looking for 2x12 advice (multi amp head conundrum)

    I'm trying to decide on a Cab that would cover my need best, having 3 different heads. I don't really have room for multiple cabs, so I'm trying to get the best all around here. Amps are Orange rockerverb 50 mk III Avatar 45 (JTM 45 style) V2 JJM 18 (hot rodded 800, kinda sorta) I know for a...

    The best home use amps are...

    Big ass amps :laugh2: Seriously, 50 watters and the like with well done master volumes are vastly superior to all of these 5 watt jobbies... at least in my experience. With my new rocker 50, I've been playing at the same volume that I do my modeler with perfectly acceptable results. My Avatar...

    So what did I get with the Kemper money?

    Oh. MY GAAAAAAAAAAAWD!!!!!!!!!!!!! I scored this used on reverb using money from selling my Kemper, and I am really glad I did :D This amp is incredibly versatile! the cleans are very similar to my Swart (midrange bumped in a pleasing way) and with the attenuator built in it does a nice classic...

    Kemper for sale.

    Just a PSA, I'm selling my Kemper in the member classifieds... I just prefer the helix and thought someone else could benefit :) I may be funding a powercab with it, or the xitone mbritt, I haven't decided yet.

    Bazuki into Helix...

    Just had some fun first thing this morning... I realized while lying in bed this morning I had never used my Bazuki with effects before, nor had I plugged it into the helix. Man, it was fun! I used a Vox AC 30 dimed with a cosmos delay, and stumbled into this little ditty. I was also looking...
