A thought came to me yesterday. Based on my guitar usage.
Is it time to sell my Axe Fx Ultra and Voodoo Labs Gcp pro and use the money to get the Axe 8.

Even less to carry. Better amp modelling and effects, more versatility
with scenes and XY function. and the Ultra is only going to go down in value.

If portability is important to you, then sure, go for it. But, I believe you'll lose some effects and I/O versatility. Anything you own will go down in value, so I wouldn't worry about that. If you want something that is definitely better than what you have, I'd consider an AxeFXII, which is still available and an excellent bargain.

The AX8 is a killer unit to be sure. It's the killer tone of the axe fx with the controller built in. It's a one piece rig that can run to front of house or in to amp. It's small enough to make is easy to carry to a jam session or a gig. If portability and ease of use is a factor, then yeah can't go wrong with ax8. The ultra is a very nice unit as well, but your back to having a rack and a floor unit to tote around and get power to.

Gabe has put countless hours on his ax8 and i"ve never heard anything but positive things. So yeah, if you wanna shrink your rig and keep your tone, great way to go smile.gif

Cool, the AX8 does seem to be a fantastic gigging unit indeed!
