    Since I am heavily into mfx, I just had to try an FRFR...

    I found an Open Box Headrush FRFR-112. The price was good and hard to pass at Musician's Friend.

    I only got to play it for 10 minutes, but I was amazed with the clarity.

    I look forward to play with it more! Not sure when...

    Nice. I run my HX Stomp board through an Alto TS312 at times. Seems people have gone to great lengths to figure out if they are the exact same, but I don’t care.

    At first I found it extremely boomy, but a tilted back, vertical placement really improved it. It’s pretty great. For live use I can go foh and have it as a more consistent monitor.

    How does your Headrush cab sound compared to running your GT-100 through a good set of studio monitors? I ask because I use a GT-100, and I create all my patches though my studio monitors. But live, the sound goes direct into our PA, and I hear it through Shure SE-215s. Unfortunately, the sound is different on all three, so it takes a long time to get a patch tweaked so it sounds good on all.

    The studio monitors were good too! But they're only good for close range, as it is what they're designed for. This FRFR is good for practice and gigs.

    The Headrush FRFR 112 was acting goofy. It was an open box item. So, I returned it. They did not have another open box and can't price match the open box price, so I tried out the Headrush FRFR 108. I found the 112 so huge and heavy anyway. Sweetwater gave it to me for $180 +tax. I like it better! It is lighter, smaller, and still friggin' loud!
