That's doesn't surprise me "H". Amazon is good for some crazy prices. Buyer beware.

It looks like these high priced ones are originating from Japan.

Well if that is too steep there is the used one for $2,500 but you have to pay for shipping.

EBay has line 6 Helix. I got one from a seller on eBay I had to submit a offer.he has them for $2500.iam shore he would do fee shipping.Best thing I've ever bought. Great pics of gear. Endless FX. And it's packed full presetFX. And Now you can Connect to a laptop or PC and everything is so user friendly. Just so easy. A bit pricey but what you get is never running out of FX. I thought about it for 2months before buying it. And it's so solid. Made from metal. Steel it's so strongly made. Iam absolutely pleased with the Helix.And to put patches. New software it's so easy. You just download the helix.And log into line 6 website and everything is at your fingertips .What a great pedal board.

Sorry to say, but if you paid 2500 (USD?) for Helix, you got ripped off.

(The quotes work again!)

 

At $2,500 we are in the beyond the ripped off zone. The word penetration comes to mind.

I was going to poke fun at anyone who pays $2500 for a $1500 item, but I don't really think it's necessary....;)

These high prices are assigned most of the time to keep a marketplace listing alive without the real need to sell on. You see hair conditioners at Amazon and eBay with a price-tag of hundreds of dollars. In most cases it's al about keeping reviews, either for a product or a seller.

You'd be amazed at the varying prices of various products across the globe. 

There was once upon a time when a bushel of bananas cost more than your home.

People waiting in line for weeks - not for Ariana Grande tickets, but for toilet paper. 

 

Yes, $2500 for a Helix is possible.

And it sure would be nice if I could use 500edit on my Android Phone or Android Tablet to manage my Pod when not at home.

Even if it needs to be a '500 Lite' version that only allows for the import and export of patches, and not a full-fledged working program.

Something needs done.

$2400au I payed for the helix. I should I've realised this is a USA site. I'm in Australia so $2400 is fair I think at the time with the way the dollar is. It's about $1700us.all the people that said I got ripped off I live in Australia so $2400 is reasonable. I couldn't import because line 6 would not give me warranty. Also import charges were $600 because of our gst and postal would of cost $300 .they sell upwards of $2400 here US they go for $1700 .But here in Australia I got it the cheapest way. And I didn't want second hand. They sell for $1800 AUSTRALIAN. And I just bought the line 6 Variax JTV 69 $1830 NEW HERE IN AUSTRALIA. from$2350.and a abs hard case and all the goodies that come with the Varaix .battery. and charger. Variax lead. Software workbench HD. Don't get it until 25th.4th.2017 💲👀😀
