    I put a simple gigging rig together with an AXE FX II XL+. It is really a fantastic beast. In the meantime, I have been putting my amps in cases and wiring up a rack so that I can run any FX through any amp into any cab. So as you would expect, the amps have been sitting for a while.

    I was pretty well used to the AXE, and I really enjoy how easy it is to fire up and play. But I finally got the wiring together for my PRS amps (3 more amps to go), and played through my Archon tonight, both through a PDI-03 into a board and small monitors and also through my Mesa 2x12.

    Holy cow! What a great amp. Oh, the tone and feel I've been missing. And having played through the Axe, I wound up setting the amp to a tone that I really like, and will probably be better for gigging.

    Elvis, I like the way you think. And better yet, I like the follow-through!

    You're my hero for posting clips, I was dying of curiosity. That's my all-time favorite cab by the way, sounds amazing paired with the Archon. I could happily live in that tone-space.

    My pleasure. It's a fantastic amp, and that is my favorite cab as well.

    Bout time, bro. Missed you around here. I think you're overworked. Do I need to talk to your boss? :D

    Check the clips in the morning. It's late in the OH.

    I'd be happy to oblige, but I turned up the gain and removed the knob with extreme prejudice...
