Here it is. I was shamed into not pussing out by half a dozen intelligent people, and I went for the Ultra.

Prompt shipping, excellent packaging including antistatic bubble wrap, nicely bound manual, and a perfect looking finish. Ghetto-rigged with a 15' XLR cable for the moment. 4U rackbag subject to change.

I HAVE BLINKIN' LIGHTS.

Now go 'way. We have private business. Srs bsns. :squint:

Congrats dude! :woot:

Can you tell me how you like the Atomic cab? I've been trying to decide on an FRFR for my AFX and I'm considering the active Atomic.

I strictly rolled through the factory presets. Some of them are a bit dark, I believe either because they're intended for single-coils or because they're emulating massive cabs. Regardless, the Reactor is incredibly smooth and detailed on the top end, and seems neutral/correct through the midrange and bass. The amps, cabs, and effects all had dramatically different sounds, very evident from the FRFR solution. They also seem to have good spread - it's on the floor, but the sound was reasonable whether I was sitting in front of it or several feet away standing up. Plus it's the only FRFR that looks like a guitar cabinet, short of a custom build, and the sparkly grille is very black so it's not lame looking.

You have sheets too! :D Congrats buddy! :woohoo:
About time, right, on both counts? o_O

Awesome! How does the setup sound?
Awesome.

Hell yeah dude!!!! TONE CLIPSSSSS!

p.s. I think penguin should be promoted to Axe FX guard.
Clips some day, not for a while. I have no recording interface whatever, only a Boss Micro-BR, and I've got patches to create/songs to write. :-/

Penguin is on duty.

Congrats :yesway:

Glad you finally snagged it. You should play with the synth block and multiband compressors so you can feel justified in buying the Ultra.

Explain patch #166 to me, "Master of Muppets." :spock: It sounds like MoP played in a sewer.

EDIT: There are too many fucking parameters. My head hurts. Whew.

If you want just bring it down here and we can record clips through my interface :yesway:

Also, you might have to bring your penguin guard because I will most likely try to steal it :lol:

Also, Vince, you're totally right - the built-in tuner is quite spectacular and beats the shit out of my Boss TU-12 (which is not a bad tuner). If I can manage to get along with the size of the display (must tune at my rig, not across the stage) I won't have to score a Peterson Drew. :yesway:

:coffee: Nice of you to finally show up. People are already :leghump:ing me for clips, have you made any yet?

Speaking of which, how's the Anaconda treating you?

Mandelbrot Generator
No, I haven't yet, but I will soon.

The Anaconda is the bee's knees. The neck profile is perfect for my shredz, and that .80 is awesome for the low grooves. I'll be debuting it onstage tonight, along with a new song, so hopefully we'll get some pics and/or video.

Good pics are a must! And I waxed your snake very thoroughly, so I expect it to be clean when you display it for the crowd. :squint:
