Behringer iAxe 393 output test review


At the end of talking about the Behringer iAxe 393 previously I realised that I’d recorded the entire thing on my Focusrite 2i2 and not using the USB built into the guitar… which is the main feature of the guitar.

Ho ho. So this is a quick run through of some sounds, using the Guitar Rig 5 software to both amplify and record. Thanks for stopping by!


Behringer iAXE 393 review with added Iron Maiden (“week” 12)

Chris Learns Guitar, Guitars

So I got this guitar, almost by accident by putting a speculative bid down… it turns out I won. I do like this guitar but it’s not without faults, as we’ll see.

I decided that as I’m still trying to learn I’d do a few intros from Number of the Beast by Iron Maiden, which are:

  • Invaders
  • The Prisoner
  • 22 Acacia Avenue
  • The Number of the Beast
  • Run to the Hills
  • Gangland
  • Hallowed be thy Name

I don’t claim them to be accurate renditions. Just something to get me playing. The influence being that the Iron Maiden guitarists (all EIGHT THOUSAND of them) all use S shaped guitars (although none entirely with single coils) Also, I forgot to even try the USB part of the guitar. Which for a USB guitar is a bit of an oversight 🙂

This is a quick video to keep the videos up to date.

First, I’ve finished filling and levelling the top pickup cavity and hopefully this is solid now.

Secondly, Some switches

1) Switching the direction of the wires from the single coil in the hope of making the pick up more POWERFUL when both are enabled. It didn’t work.

2) A coil split on the rails. Which works bit it ultimately pointless when there’s a perfectly functional single coil here!

3) Kill switch. Because: Kill switch! That’s it.
