    Hi!
    Each one of these 4 samples is either the Axe FX II XL (kind of similar setup), or the 2203KK with the Sm57, or the 906.
    Regards,
    Simon

    I like the first one the best. The last one is not bad either.

    Hey, all those tones can be useful, but the first and the last are sounding best alone, but also are sounding pretty typical..

    Hey, why not experiment with 2nd and 3rd to find some new and interesting tones!!!

    Man, it all depends ;)

    Anyway, good job!

    1 > 2 >> 4 > 3

    i really dont like 3 and 4 and these dont share any 2203 characterstics i know from your old recordings. So i guess its something like this:

    1 - Marshall + SM57
    2 - Marshall + e906
    3 - Axe + e906
    4 - Axe +SM57

    Not sure about mic. The e906 is darker than the 57 but with engaged hiboost its sharper than 57.

    the only one i'd ever use is the first one, with a little less lowend. That one is pretty good, the rest aren't.

    Who cares? Why's it have to be a guessing game? It's not like I'm going to run out and buy a piece of equipment based off your mediocre recording. :Smokedev:

    I thought the first tone sounded best.

    Almost! :)
    It's
    1: Amp with 57
    2. Amp with 906
    3. Axe with 57
    4. Axe with 906

    All Axe signals are direct.
    Cheers,
    Simon
    See above
    That was a 906
    I would go with the first one too
    Why not? I wouldn't buy an amp based on yt videos anyway. At least not anymore :)
    Me too.
