    Andy Timmons' "Resolution" tone attempt with the Axe-FX (preset included)

    Hi dudes,

    The tones on Andy Timmon's CD Resolution are some of the best that have graced my ears, and I ever since getting the Axe-FX I've been meaning to give a proper shot at nailing it (I tried soon after getting the Axe and it got positive feedback but in retrospect it was a long way off). Anyway, without further ado, hear is me hacking a couple of sections from two tracks from Resolution. Go easy on me - it's been a long while since I last tried playing these tunes and these are just quick one-takers done without a click:

    The guitar is my Blackmachine B2 with a pair of Bare Knuckle Mule pickups. I've got the tone knob rolled back a touch, and for The Prayer/The Answer I rolled back to volume knob to begin with, then gradually opened it up to about 9.

    As promised, here's the patch:

    There's 0 post-processing on the clip at all. The tone isn't absolutely 100% spot on, but it's close enough for now

    That's sounds awesome and that's probably as close to his tone as anyone is going to get.

    The more I hear this fucking Axe-FX the more I want one.

    That tone is absolutely amazing, I really can't believe just how close you got. My GAS for an AXE-FX has gone through the roof now. Your clips like these prove that it isn't just a 'djent-box' and that it really can do any type of tone you want.

    Really good playing as well, although that's a given.

    Thanks for the lovely comments chaps

    Joel, really cool to hear these clips have impacted on you like that. I think it's fair to say that the potential of the Axe-FX is only really limited by the user, but it is certainly far from a "plug-and-play" style device.
