Are there any? I had the question come up and did not really have an answer. I would tend to think not, but I could be wrong?

I know there are pros who use line 6 vettas, I couldn't tell you any off the top of my head.
I don't give a shit if you listen to me or not

loads of people use the built in reverb on fenders, and no doubt there are others who use other in-built effects.

I figured it just would not be all that common. As most pros use high end amps that usually don't offer built in effects. (Other than reverb)

I wouldn't really call Reverb a "built in effect," it comes in so many amps and 99% of people who have one with it are going to use it, it adds depth to your sound. If you have it there, I don't see the point of not using it, unless the reverb on the amp sucks.

Quite a few artists use Vettas, but I'm not sure if any of them actually use the built in effects, other than reverb, comp and gate

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

If you count amps with tremolo as a built-in effect, then absolutely loads. Otherwise, it's mainly people who use Vettas, but as MatrixClaw said, most people just use them for the modelling rather than the effects, as far as I know. I'm not that certain though...

Tremeolo and 'verb are of course very common. but I can't imagine why anyone would use cheap, crappy onboard digital FX when they can can have all the top-quality pedalboard and rackmount effects they like.

Static X - Marshall MG100HDFX, I think
Meshuggah used Vettas (it's Axe-FX now), I guess they had some delay and modulation on the amp for the solos.

Most high end amps lack in-built effects, so that would explain it. Besides, most of the time you dont have that much choice or control on in-built effects (Vetta excluded) so individual stompboxes are almost always the better choice.

What amp? I've never heard of an amp with built in phaser before.

The Axe-FX is not an amplifier. Though I do hear good things about it.

Have you heard it yet? Buddy of mine owns the top end version and it absolutely slays any other modeling on the market and IMHO sounds better than all but the best real amps (assuming you run it through a quality tube power amp (he uses a Randall RT-2/50 into twin Avatar 4x12s).

After I get my second Suhr guitar the Axe-FX may well be my next purchase (luckily, I already own a Randall RT-2/50 and Avatar 4x12 -- but right now I drive it with a Line 6 POD X3 Live).

Most threads in here I just ignore (too little time, too many obligations). I'm glad I took the time to read this one. I actually took the time also to search out this thing on the net. Definitely, it looks worthwhile. I'm not a tone purist by any stretch of the imagination. I even want to pick up a guitar synth soon and start messing with that too, but this Axe-FX seems to warrant some more investigation. Thanks
