I am not a big fan of Tom's tone, but he sure can play.

The Laney seems like a pretty good alternative and looks like a real cabinet.

It also offers the option to use it like a straight guitar cab with the IR/cab block turned off in your modeler.

Pretty interesting.

I just don't like FRFR I guess... But the fine tuning on the back of this one is pretty cool.

I think OP's ax8 demos sound better, too :hmm:

Sounds kind of muffled to me. I don't understand why he didn't use the Direct Out and record the audio separate then edit that into the video? I do it all the time. Why do a demo and have it sound dull?

It definitely had some midrange boost to it, especially since he could only close mic the one driver. While the gain on some parts and effects were a little much for me, I think it would cut through the mix nicely live.

My personal experience, which is in no way universal, I get the best FRFR sounds with close mic'ing when the volume is very low. A bit louder and it sounds best a few feet back, 12, 18, 24 inches.

But at the volumes I play, I have to do my demos through my looper so the strings don't interfere with the sound. I get some pretty cool tones, though. IMHO.
