Different methods to obtain lead tone in Helix Posted November 1 5 hours ago, emagli said: Sounds interesting and I’ll try that too. Isn’t resonance going to increase the low end? For leads I generally like to cut the lows — I find it makes the guitar less muddy so that it cuts through the mix better. I find that the resonance/depth controls thickens the overall tone, but doesn’t add mud or flub. It’s too bad that only a few of the models have this control. I also used to dial back low frequencies for leads, but then I felt that the tone was too thin. It’s always a balancing act...Good luck with your tone search.
