What the heck, I am going to start one in this forum. I have (and love) a collection of Fender amps. I am a tube fiend like most of us. On the other hand, a pro friend of mine happily uses an Axe FX and was talked into it by players on the Experience Hendrix tour (like Steve Vai). Doing some research into these latest pieces (Fractal and one other that you can set to model any amp), it seems technology finally delivers something that sounds as good as tubes AND has additional benefits (disadvantages too, initial cost and complexity). That said, my favorite tones comes from a Fender tweed and blackface amps (after that would be Marshall and Vox. I know the FX does these well). Does anyone know if these devices do a good job with Fender tones? That's not what you hear on the many YouTubes and websites devoted to the Axe.
