    Somehow sounds more like a tube amp than my actual tube amp.

    Posted by Tom on 9th Jan 2023

    I don't know how, but the FM9 sounds more like a tube amp than my real one. The tones are incredible right out of the box. There are sparking cleans, edge of breakup, screaming lead tones, crunchy distortions, and even nasty grunge tones that you wouldn't believe could come out of anything but hardware. Then, there's the foot control, which I'll admit was a little confusing to me at first, but soon made total sense. The kind of control you get with just your feet is honestly a game-changer. That would be enough for me to buy this, but then there are the effects, which are absolutely top-notch. I hear absolutely no artifacts on anything. The delays and reverbs are so spot on, they're basically transparent. I don't even think about them. And unlike so many of these types of things that I've used in the past, they don't crowd out your tone. I could probably write an entire book about how great this thing is, but I'll just say - try it, and you'll be hooked.

    A shame the supply chain issues and silicon shortages kept this beauty out of stable for so long. I cannot get enough of it. I am torn between learning how use the zillion things it can do vs just playing the hundreds of preloaded settings. All of the sampled amp and cabinets sound amazing. My loves that she no longer needs to hear my Marshall when I am playing (though I do fire it up when she goes out). this is a beast. super rugged, very well constructed. The FM9-EDIT software loaded on my MacBook and worked flawlessly. All around best $1600 I spent in a long. Great work.

    FM9 Exceeded Expectations

    Posted by Jim Nitterauer on 27th Oct 2022

    I have been waiting for over a year to get one of these. It finally arrived! I naturally plugged it right in and started playing. Out of the box, this device is the best I have ever heard. I played it through my two amps (an older Fender Hotrod Deluxe and a Fender 5E3 that I built myself). The default sounds were sensational. The pedalboard is well thought out and perfect for everything from simple effects to a full show programmed by song. I have been reading through the manual and am amazed at the level of thought and planning that went into this unit. I would say that when you purchase one, don't forget to buy a humbuster cable for each device that you are connecting to. You also need special cables to the expression pedals so don't forget those as well. This unit combined with a good tube amp will change your playing! Haven't found any downsides yet. Will be building my own sounds as I seek to emulate some of my classic favorite rockers. Highly recommend!
