  1. You want a FRFR (full range flat response) amplifier. Something like the L6 Powercab or the Tech 21 Power Engine Deuce Deluxe (which is what I use).
  2. So far, the only pedal I've needed besides my LT is a Rocktron Banshee talk box.
  3. Both at home and at practice, I use a Tech 21 Power Engine Deuce Deluxe Also have a Roland JC-40 I can use.
  4. Personally, I'm looking forward to the two additional blocks. It will make it so much easier to transfer patches back and forth between my Stomp and my LT.

  6. This one is switchable from TRS-->TS-->RTS, and is also very compact. I've used it with the HX Stomp. https://www.amazon.com/Digitech-Guitar-Expression-Pedal-DOD-MiniEXP-U/dp/B01MS9OGN9/ref=sr_1_9?keywords=expression+pedal&qid=1581543472&sr=8-9
  7. I have a couple of these. Not cheap, but they're rock solid and highly adjustable. https://www.musiciansfriend.com/accessories/gibraltar-electronic-drum-mount-station/581377000000000?rNtt=gibraltar stand&index=18
  8. A decent pair of Bluetooth headphones and a wireless transmitter/receiver like this should do the trick: https://www.amazon.com/TaoTronics-Bluetooth-Transmitter-Receiver-Simultaneously/dp/B01EHSX28M/ref=sr_1_4?crid=9IPOF4F5CYLD&keywords=bluetooth+audio+transmitter+and+receiver&qid=1576792387&sprefix=bluetooth+audio%2Caps%2C166&sr=8-4
  9. I honestly don't get why people get worked up about this nonsense. Just enjoy what you have and don't worry about if/when new bells & whistles come out. Chances are, most people barely scratch the surface when it comes to what features they actually use anyway. I know I'll never use every single amp model, cab and effect in the Helix...but it is nice to have choices.
  10. As I get older, I tend to care less and less what people think...especially when it comes to things like which gear I use. All I care about is 1) it sounds good, 2) it's easy to use and 3) it won't break my back or my bank account.
  11. Maybe Line 6 and Apple could get together and produce the Helix Watch :)
  12. I would agree with the others. Your best bet is to save up for the LT. If you need a backup or alternate rig, the Stomp could be an option. That's my current setup...other than the 6 block limitation, the Stomp can do everything the LT does in terms of amp models, effects, etc. and the presets are interchangeable (again, taking the block limit into account).
  13. I just purchased a Helix LT, and I'm thinking about an HX Stomp as a backup device. Can the two devices share the same presets, or is there some conversion process that would allow presets created on one device to be used on the other?
  14. Another option to consider is the Tech 21 Power Engine Deuce Deluxe. It's a little more expensive than the 112, and it's rated at 200 W (not 2000) but it is plenty loud with a lot of bottom end (it's a deep ported closed back cab). It's also, IMHO, the best of both worlds...it's a FRFR powered speaker, but looks and sounds much like a traditional guitar amp. The tweeter can be turned off, which gives you more of the "amp in the room" sound and feel. I've been very happy with it so far. Haven't gigged with it yet, but it cuts through a full band at rehearsals and sounds great. I actually bought two of them so that I can run stereo (or dual mono) if I want.
