    Awesome New Helix Accessory :)

    I have a 72 Goldtop Deluxe, and I couldn't leave mine alone either. Put in HB's Grover tuners. Didn't even keep the mini's. Like you said, it's too heavy for 4 sets now days, and my Suhr Strat, RW Tele get the most play thru the Helix. I have a first gen Variax I'm going to try, as I just got the cable today.

    Old long floorboard

    Thanks for the answers friends. I've had my Flextone and the Flrbrd.on consignment at a music store for 6 mo this now. Not much interest. It was always a good sounding and pretty easy to use setup, but new stuff rules I guess in the modeling world.

    Old long floorboard

    Will my old Long Floorboard used with my FlextoneII/Plus work with a Spider V? I haven't read the whole forum yet. Thanks for any replies.

    Anyone have a good funk guitar preset they can Share?

    Some of that James Brown Funk was played on Gibson guitars with humbuckers.

    Helix and Relay G10

    Got my G10 yesterday, charged it to a full charge, hooked it up, and so far so good. I took my G90 out of my rack, and replaced it with my Furhman power source. The G10 will get the stage test next week with 2 weeks of 5 niters. I don't roam too far, and if I don't get interference the G90 will go for sale.

    Helix gig without backup?

    Tech21 RK5 in my gig bag to back up my KPA,and Helix, but I've never had to use it. And spare strings, extra guitar, and enough cables, and batteries for the wireless stuff.

    Just got my AX-8 invitation...

    Some of the factory profiles are pretty good. I used a tweeked Deluxe Reverb patch for a year, before I bought the Michael Britt profiles. The MBritt is what makes the sounds of the KPA "tough" to beat, AFAIC.

    Just got my AX-8 invitation...

    I still have my KPA Rack and KR, as those tones are pretty thought to beat, and I haven't got there with my Helix yet. I hope I can get close, because like you said basically, less stuff to haul! Btw, I have 3 booteeks that have been dust collectors for 2 years si cel I got my KPA.

    Helix with real AC30 and PA

    I would leave the AC30 at home, and go direct to FOH with the Essex30 of the Helix. Use a monitor, or some kind of FRFR for your own mix. That's the beauty of the new generation modelers, you don't need to take an amp.

    Do I need 2 paths to run stereo to FOH? I'll use line level XLR's to my snake, then to 2 channels on the board. If I. drop a stereo chorus or delay in a single path, will they play FOH in stereo?

    Used my Helix after owning two days for a four hour gig.

    So did you guys use Glenn's patches live, or did you just use them as templates to create your own patches? I'm interested in his patches also, and would like to just tweek them a bit and use them like they are.

    I currently have been using the G90 for a couple of years. Zero issues, except batteries. I don't stray too far from my mic onstage, and the only other wireless would be the Shure IEM's. Could the Shure interfere with the G10? I'm thinking not. My only reason for the G10 would be simplifying my rig. Wouldn't have to bring the rack with KPA/G90.
  13. Bikedude


    Yes, and I'm sick of going thru batteries. Between my G90 belt pack, and Shure IEM (9volts), I'm spending a small fortune. I'm sick of 2 belt packs on my strap. I've had the 'guitar bug' but that is old technology, and would cut in an out during a set. Between the 16 Led Par Cans with wireless control, the IEM's and other various stage interference I need something reliable, and the G90 delivers. I just hope the G10 is as foolproof.

    I have one back ordered to replace my rack G90 wireless, going minimal. Anyone have one out in the field yet? Andy from L6 had one he was using to demo the Helix, and it looked, and performed so nice, I ordered the thing.
