  1. Hey gang! Ran into an odd issue and was able to do a home-fix to get it going again. I plugged a fully recharged Variax battery into my JTV-69S, but it wouldn't power up. Hooked it up to the 500X with the VDI cable and it was good. Okay, what's up with the battery? Looked inside the battery cavity and in-between the two alignment pins is a small flat piece of metal that makes a connection to the battery. It looked more like it was flush to the cavity and unable to make contact with the battery. I popped out the screws that hold the cavity in the guitar and pushed the "fat" end of a flat toothpick into the underside of the metal tang to push it up to the battery connection. It works again! So, I pushed the toothpick in until it was seated and clipped off the remainder, leaving just enough to snag with a pair of pliers in case I need to pull it out at some point in the future. A box of 750 was only $1 at the grocery store. I have 749 toothpicks left... anybody need one? Ha! (They also work great when you have a loose strap pin. Remove the strap pin screw, drop the toothpick in the hole, trim off the excess and put the screw back in. Bam! Nice and tight again!)

  2. Gorgeous! Exquisite! It reminds me of my custom built commemorative.

  3. On a side note this IPAD app for the Firehawk is brilliant! Why did they not implement this for the Helix? I dont understand some decisions by L6!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. Would it do what you want, in terms of providing effects and Wah? Yes. Ant they're based upon older Line 6 technology -- POD XT Live vintage. Apparently you're up on that and find it an acceptable compromise. Whammy, not so much -- at least nothing convincing, IMO. I've used an XT-Live preset that's supposed to simulate a whammy, and was very underwhelmed. Not even sure if the FX100 has such a capability. (Yes, I do own an FX100...) Yes, you can connect it to your iPad via Bluetooth to use the Amplifi Remote App for creating and selecting presets. You can also connect to a PC via USB and use the FX100 as an audio device. But it sounds like you're expecting seamless interoperability with your iPad running iOS amp modelers/sims. I don't think that's a reasonable expectation. Since you mention planning to use it in live setting, let me give you something to think about: The FX100 is about the 'dumbest' pedal board you're likely to encounter. It gives you 4 pushbutton switches, marked A, B, C & D, for selecting a preset, and a two-digit LED display that tells you which of the 25 banks is active. So, if you have several presets that you want to use, you'll have to remember bank numbers and which preset within the bank you need to select. There are no switches for turning on or off any of the effects, so if you need a solo boost, for example, you have to select a preset with a hotter output -- you can't just step on a switch. This is VERY limiting. If you need to switch banks, you have to simultaneously step on TWO of the selector switches to move the bank up, and two OTHER switches to move the bank down. I don't know about you, but I'm not good at this on a dark stage in the middle of a song... Frankly, I'd think that an Amplifi TT with an FBV Shortboard MKII or FBV 3 would be a much better fit, in line with what you're hoping to do. I have an FBV MKII, and it's far more useful with my Amplifi 30 and Amplifi 150 than with the FX100.

  5. yes i have, and i finally got it to work, I don't know, but for whatever reason. the usb firmware wasnt updated, and because of that, line 6 monkey wasnt able to detect it and i had everything except the usb firmware. Not only that but the reinstall button was greyed out so i couldnt update it, then I changed the wire to a different one, and i was able to update the firmware for the usb. (i was using the original wire first then i switched it)

  6. Yes it is. I do this rather frequently. If your device has a USB out instead of a headphone jack then you'd use the Stomp's USB in. You'd probably have to buy the right cord connections for it, but it's doable. If it has a headphone jack then you'd probably need an adapter so that the cord will fit into a standard guitar input, but those are pretty cheap ($6 for 4 on Amazon when I bought them).

  7. Yes you can. That’s exactly what I was doing as described a few posts earlier. I used a 3.5mm to 2xTS cable to plug my iPad into the Return jacks on the HX Stomp. Just remember to set the Return as “Aux In” in the Global Settings.
