Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
When they say they captured the amp 'feel', they were right. It's not 100%, but it's more evident than any other modeler I've tried. Build is solid. Models, while really only a handful, sound great, fx too. Comes with PT10, costing $700 by itself. This bundle is a steal, comparatively. Will submit a more detailed follow up review in future.If the AxeFx is only slightly better, it's the biggest waste of money out there. For that kinda money, just get a real tube amp with a rack fx unit and have the 'real deal', not a simulation. Save the $$$, get this or POD HD Pro and add on or upgrade something else in your rig/studio with the change.
