  • Just bought Helix...

    And this thing is freaking awesome! I had AmpliFire before in my pedalboard. I also had wah, tuner and noise gate in there. Then decided to end the hassle with the board and go with Helix. One practice with the band and I must say this really surpassed my expectations. Nothing wrong with the AmpliFire, sounded really good also, but was a bit limited for what I wanted to do.

    Our other guitarist also has now a Helix and we are both going to buy a set of Alto TS210s to go with the Helix. This way we can craft our presets to compliment each other really nicely. Also, we can build the presets in a way that we surely know that they are going to sound good in a live situation.

    These things are getting really popular. I use a Fractal, but some seriously great sounds have come out of the Helix, too. It is a great time to play guitar.

      Yeah! Had an Axe Fx Standard back in the day. It was a great sounding machine. You said it man, truly a great time to play guitar.

        Do you just buy these on faith or does your local dealer have them where you can try before you buy?
        I would love to check out a Helix or AXE FX but no one ever has one in stock to try out. I hate that.

        But on the flip side I gotta agree with you guys on the timing to play, I have a Boss ES-5 and want to get a ES-8 and Man I love that thing. I had a Boss GT100 prior and I liked it but never thought it was top notch in sound quality so I went back to pedals

          Congrats on the purchase. Is it the lt or the full helix? Also what do you play it through?

            Yeah, I could've tried it before I bought it in my local dealer (also the distributor in Finland) but I had already heard it in action by our other guitarist.

            Thanks Dante! Yeah, mine is the LT, didn't find use for the extras in the regular version. Right now I play it through DV Mark 250GH (fx return) and DV Mark Neoclassic 212. Switching to the Altos soon, though

              Good decision. After many years I'm fed up to manage tons of cables and pedals. I have both Helix and AX8 ( as a backup ). I started to sell my pedals to have Kemper also

              By the way... TECH 21 Brit is also good...

                Exactly this. Problem solving, managing your rig and exploring sounds has never been easier. Going to buy the G10 relay too for wireless operation.

                    Yeah I am looking at the Line6 wireless units for mine...either the G30 or G10 (I dig that it is rechargeable). But most people who buy things like a Helix, buy it on faith (I bought my Fractal that way). There are so many options on them, that it is hard to just try out in a store.

                      Yeah, and that is not the absolute truth even (testing out in the store) because third party impulses such as Ownhammer make the Helix soooooo much better. Fractal products too, ofc.

                        IRs can radically change the sound of the amp model. There are literally thousands of free ones out there, too...troll the modeling forums.

                          After discovering these better IRs the modelling hasn't been the same for me. In a really really good way.

                            The Helix is amazing.

                            There is a great Facebook page for getting ideas and getting questions answered. Some of the Line6 guys are members as well.

                              The group is amazing! I was there even before I got the Helix myself So much good advice and tips.
