    Nice! The PowerCabs look solid too.
    Too much focus leads to tunnel vision
    Too much faith leads to religion
    Too much knowledge leads to confusion
    Too many guitar lessons lead to jazz-fusion

    Thanks folks. I'm very happy with the Powercabs, they sound great and they look classy. My only critique is that the round over on the edges is VERY sharp (think like the edges of an RG), so even the most minor bump causes the tolex to fray

    @budda
    Guy who had the FM3 before me already loaded it up with the Leon presets, so I lucked out I am really impressed with all the stockers though.

    Best bellwether on how accurate the Fractal modeling is the fact the clean channel on the 5150 still sounds like shit.

    My iii was used and the previous owner left me some paid presets to try. I didnt know i was missing factory presets until months later . I have a bunch of LT ones on hand, but I'll probably delete a few as I dont use them.

    Burgs also makes some great presets (i believe thats his handle on axe edit).

    If I can find a cheap enough iii, my brother will switch from his helix LT. Challenge accepted .

    Related - does the fm3 also have a [email protected] runner factory preset?

    It does, I haven't tried it but the preset wiki says it's a lite version of the Axeiii so I'm assuming it's a resource hog? I haven't really bumped into the limits on this yet, but I'm only running the basic od-amp-cab-delay-verb type rig, occasionally with a comp and /or eq and I'm at about 77% processing on average. I'd imagine dual amps and stuff like that will max it out pretty quick.

    I think the [email protected] runner preset was the "what's the most we can jam into a preset without maxing out DSP but with the most fun?" . Definitely give it a spin.

    Anyway these Powercabs are fucking sick. I wish the 212 wasn't so stupid overpriced because stereo with two different speaker models in the same box would be great. But as it is you can get two 112s for less than the 212, so why bother?
    I've been thinking of getting one of these Powercabs to use with my Kemper. Are you using is as an FRFR cab, or do you turn off the cab emulation in your Fractal and use the Powercab as a modelling cab?
