That is weird. My other guitarist used an Axefx and most models he tried couldn't top my K88. My amp does have the shape knob that changes the midrange frequency range so I'm sure that helps.stompboxfreak72":3s98pzro said:I could not sell my Barron Kt88 fast enough. Would not cut through a mix. Sounded great as a bedroom amp but failed miserably live.
