Rig Rundown: King Crimson's Robert Fripp

The veteran prog-rock hero continues his fearless forays into the future with a tubeless setup heavy on digital effects and MIDI capabilities that give him ultimate control.

Since Fripp doesn’t use traditional amps in his rig these Fractal Audio Axe-Fx II XLs are where his core sound comes from. The bottom one is his main one and the top one serves as a backup, which thankfully has never been used during a show. Fripp is quite adept at using the Axe-Edit software, so he programs all of the sounds himself.
