    They both sound great, but I think I prefer the Triaxis (though I did think the Access sounded better on some of the presets he played and there were some where it was very difficult to say which was better). Still, very similar sounds overall with the biggest differences in the cleans.

    I did keep thinking "Damn, that guy needs to use a noise gate" through much of the video, though.

    I preferred the sound on the ACCESS on High Gain, but this is listening on a YT video

    Didn't watch most of it, but a big part of the goodness of the Triaxis comes with how it pairs w/the 2:90. By itself it's just ok, but w/the different power amp modes it really comes alive.

    Also this guy's palm muting technique is atrocious.

    Yeah, he did a Zakk Wylde oldschool tone video, didn't he? I recall really liking that one.

    His muting and bitchpicking here is softer than a miming djent Youtube sensation. Palm muting isn't a technique that you approach surgically like sweep picking, its about balls and putting some oomph into it. No oomph = shitty mutes = shitty riff.

    They're such an essential technique that a lot of players overlook and can make the difference between a great riff and one that's awkward and sterile like this dude's playing here.

    Also, since he put his face in the thumbnail, he's too damn old to wear his hat that way, who the hell is he trying to fool.

    I really appreciate this dude's videos. He at least always goes through and demonstrates multiple styles/tones.
    It's so good to hear demos with some old school rock riffs and not some Djenty crap.
