The Edge is known for his signature sound—a combination of musical elegance, exquisite core tone, and innovative effects—especially echo. For him to trust this illustrious sonic asset to the Axe-Fx II expresses that it meets his exacting needs, but also demonstrates that this guitarist is a veritable force at the forefront of both music and technology.

I got my Axe-Fx Ultra back in 2008 and haven't looked back since. The Axe-Fx II now forms the integral part of our live rig, and allows us to have our tones wherever we are in the world. The level of reliability, tone and practicality is unrivalled by anything else.

The Ultra completely and forever changed the way I look at guitar processing. The Axe-Fx II takes everything I love about the Ultra to the next level. All of the FX sound richer and the new interface makes it even easier to use. My rig has a new openness and clarity and sounds so much better as a result.

I've fallen in love with the Axe-Fx II. The tonal power is amazing - so many different amps and effects, and everything is updatable. I can program all of my signal chains just the way I want them, and be able to recall those sounds at any time. I don't have to worry ever again about recreating my studio tones for live performance.

The Axe-Fx is by far the best invention in the guitar world of this century. Not only has it allowed me to reduce my live rig to the minimum (no more huge racks) but also offered me the possibility to get the best sounds in every situation.

The AX8 is everything and more for my electric guitar setup. I honestly can’t see any reason for players not to use this on stage and in the studio. It is superbly practical with a minimal learning curve and the amp models are just unbelievable, not to mention the ridiculous amount of high quality effects that you can tweak for days. I’ve barely scratched the surface with this thing but I can’t wait to dive deeper.

The Axe-Fx II allows you to bring any sound out there in any genre to your studio or live environment. Anyone who tells me they can't get a good sound out of the Axe-Fx just simply hasn't tried.

After playing through the Axe-Fx II for a while I went back to my rig to compare, and it just felt like it was fighting me. You guys have really closed the gap here on both the amps and the effects. This is just incredible technology.

The quality of all the effects is superb. There is great depth and transparency, and excellent imaging that makes listening with in-ear monitoring a wonderful aural experience.The choices are limitless and it's fully loaded with all the options you'd ever need.  Take it for a test drive, you won't be disappointed.

The tone of the Axe-Fx II is simply amazing, and that is coming from a self-admitted amp junkie. This thing delivers amps, cabs, effects, and total control. I am seriously impressed, and hooked.

The Fractal is one of the coolest pieces of gear I've come across in years. The presets are awesome! Super fun and inspiring. Totally convenient and bottom line sounds and feels great.

The Axe-Fx II took my live sound to a depth I could previously get only in the studio. The effects are incredible and the unit is intuitive to use.

Axe-fx changed the spectrum of sound for myself and many other modern metal players - i was sold the second i started toying around with one, and now im hooked! I use it in the studio and on tour.

I used the Ultra on "Sounds of Freedom" to create the best guitar sounds I have ever recorded (after 14 solo albums!) The Axe-Fx II is even more fantastic... with even more body, complexity and presence... even more purity, width and warmth. This is virtuosity in technology.

The Axe Fx is truly a wet dream for a guitarist. I can finally create what I have always wanted. Making the Axe Fx Tips & Tricks videos on Youtube has made me realize what a beast the Axe Fx is. I can’t see myself going back to gear like the ones that I had before. Now I can concentrate on playing instead of searching for gear.

The Axe-Fx doesn't only sound like my favourite amps, it "feels" like them too. All the pros of the real thing without any of the cons. In fact, what am I talking about? It IS the real thing.

It's just that simple, when it comes to recording for my CDs, laying tracks for the TV shows I am scoring, or making electric guitar (or acoustic guitar with a pickup) sound design for my various projects the Axe-Fx II is my first call device. It is by far the best piece of guitar gear I have ever owned.

My Fractal gear sounds amazing! Pure, real and versatile. It's a fundamental part of my rig, both live and in the studio. Fractal Audio frees me to create all the tones I can imagine.

The Axe-Fx is hands down, the most powerful and best sounding guitar unit to date. The effects in it are beautiful, the amp models retain the feel of a real amp, and the ability to create your own IRs is fantastic! This unit really has no limitations!

Adding the Fractal Axe-FX2 in my rig is one of the wisest things I've ever done. It's completely changed my playing, ideas, and career for the better. I use it with my Jarrell MPS guitar and Orange heads for the best variety of the highest quality guitar sounds I've ever heard.
