So, I have the chance to pick up a Vetta combo w/ footboard for a steal today. Obviously, people seem to be going nuts over the Axe-FX too.
My question is....
What are the major advantages of the Axe-FX compared to the Vetta?
Nowadays, you can get a Vetta for a reasonable price, but the Axe-FX is $1500+. I'm basically trying to justify the price & wether the Axe-FX is really that much of a bargain compared to a used Vetta.
I have yet to know someone who owns a Vetta that didn't have it break down on them, usually at a show. Personally, I've seen it happen three times, twice to the same guy (yes, they were two different amps). The power section just stops working.
You're a gigging musician, and the things are horribly unreliable. Avoid.
