I have always been a tube amp snob, but since my purchase I have been totally reconverted. The options available are endless and just such good quality.
The service from Independent was excellent and I consider this such good value.

The most important thing about this thing is it’s sound. It sounds fantastic. For someone who needs at least three entirely different sounds, this is simply an excellent solution. And it’s fun.

Ever since I got my first taste of gear lust with the AXE-FX II, which I first saw at a gear expo in Poland, I've been dying to get that fractal tone shaping.
One of my guitar students sprang for this unit and I couldn't be happier! I'm selling all my pod stuff. Great amps. tones, effects are all top-notch and very tweaky. I've been gorging on the video tutorials and in the first week I played it out in 4 different live settings :) Buy this and you won't regret it!

After watching all the amazing demos and having a couple of friends whose opinions on tone I trust greatly tell me how much they love the AX8, I decided to take the punt.
Best choice I have made. Basically, I bought it as a simplification tool for my 'B' rig, but already the power is intoxicating. Currently running in the 4 cable method and using the midi to control my amp, I now have the most simple and clean set up. The flexibility to set it up however suits you is phenomenal and all of the effects and amp models are tremendous.
Its primary use is as a controller and FX for my amp (so all the 'tone' is still made by my amp, not the AX8) but even at home plugged straight into my DAW, the tone is ridiculous. As a person with a couple of the amps modelled in the AX8, I can confirm that sounds are so faithful, you'd struggle to identify which is which.
Have become a complete AX8 evangelist and am convincing my friends to jump on board. For me, you'll never beat the tone from a cranked tube amp, but it's so close now that to the untrained ear, there is no difference here.
Amazing and thanks independent music!

I have owned most amp brands, and have accumulated a mountain of pedals that I have swapped and changed out for over 25 + years of playing the guitar.
I received my AX8 a week ago ( very quick delivery, may I add) and have to say I am blown away.
IMO this unit sounds amazing , it is very compact and delivers everything I need and much more, I have actually kept quite a few of the presets as my go to sounds ( no tweaking) .( I play for covers bands & original artists)
The sounds I am dialling are exactly what I hear in my head, and the sound/output/quality is consistent ( try that with a dodgy tube amp). I no longer need to look for any more toys, this AX8 has solved my search for tone.
I have it hooked to a QSC kK2 as monitor( plenty of power) and then direct to PA.. ( that simple) .. try one you'll love it.

This is a great addition to my little home studio. I like that Im able to connect it through the fx loop of my 5150 combo which sound great and also it has been great for recording direct into Logic ( late at light ) just straight ( 1/4 jack ) into the direct input of my interface, the quality sounds awesome.
Still alot to learn with it, but I think it has been a great investment so far, I highly recommend this unit!

Couldn't be happier with the AX8. Once you get your head around how to get going you'll wonder why you mucked around with amps and pedals. All the good stuff from the Axe Fx and nothing you don't need.

I can't rate this product highly enough. The options - mind boggling; the amp sims and cabs - mind blasting; the fx - mind altering; the sound - mind altering. Seriously though this multi-fx/amp modeller is the future. It's built like a tank and has enough options to keep any guitar player occupied for years on end.
