  1. I am in 2 covers bands and occasionally need to quickly switch from acoustic to electric guitar and back for songs such as Boston's "Peace Of Mind". I am considering purchasing a JTV-69 Variax with HH config to provide that capability. I realize there is no L6 link on PG, that's fine. I can deal with that. Does anyone have any experience with such usage, or any experiences (good or bad) with it that resulted from it? Thank you.
  2. I just use a fairly well-padded Swiss Gear backpack I have had for forever. Probably cost me $15 - $20 at Target when I bought it. Sorry don't have a picture...
  3. I haven't seen it anywhere. Had an AX8 fail at a hot outdoor gig before, wondering what is the Pod GO operating temp range spec? Thanks.
  4. Only ones I have found that worked well and were low noise were BoxKing BK05 and BK06 supplies, they have 9V@2A outputs. Also need the correct connector, the Line 6 stuff uses a slightly larger power connector, the specifics escape me at the moment. The BK05 is about half the watt-hours of the BK06 but should still run it for ~4 hrs based on 1.5A at 9V. I think 7 or 8 for the BK06. I have several of both types. They seem to have become difficult to find lately, though... https://reverb.com/item/16341438-boxking-bk05-12800mah-pedal-powerbank-rechargeable-portable-pedal-power-supply
  5. Gee thanks. I'm so glad I was able to amuse you. Never mind. I thought someone may actually want to be helpful. Obviously a mistake. Thanks for the passive aggressive stuff. Have a great day.
  6. I repeatedly tried to do a factory reset on my HX Stomp XL by holding down C and D switches while powering on, it doesn't work, just... boots up normally. Tried A and B, A and C, B and D, A and C, yadda yadda yadda. What is the correct way to do a factory reset that will work? I'm paranoid about bricking it by doing something wrong. Appreciate the help. Thanks.
  7. OK thanks Phil, I had thought as much but was wondering if I had overlooked something. much appreciated.
  8. Hi, how to navigate through the presets in 6-switch stomp mode? I did not see this addressed in the manual. Thanks.
  9. Thanks for the replies. I should have stated that I have an HX Effects, in addition to a Helix. Mea culpa. I usually gig with the HX FX, hence no preamp/power amp models, only pedals. I typically drive an amp with it, either tube or SS run clean and I use the HX FX to provide the dirt and effects. Right now I use two general purpose presets, one based around Dhiyana drive and one around Tone Sovereign, which sorta gets me into Marshall territory. Just wondering if another one is closer.
  10. Any suggestions as to which dirtbox pedal model(s) would provide the best JTM45 -ish/Plexi/MIAB tones? I'm talking EVH brown sound, Allmans, Zep, Deep Purple, that sort of tone, hard blues up to hard rock but not metal. Two of my faves are SL Drive and Charlie Brown. Something like those two, it should clean up fairly well with the guitar volume knob and dropping the pedal gain. Legacy Drive is sorta ok but doesn't clean up very well, even at low gain it's pretty wooly. OCD seems closest. Anyone have anything they've used before that gets close to the mark?
  11. It worked just fine with your advice. Thanks again!
  12. I think I tried that already but will try again. Thanks!
  13. Hi, is there some way to change preset folders manually from the Helix controls, e.g. how to switch from USER1 to USER2, FACTORY1 to USER2, that sort of thing. It is easily done in HX Edit, but cannot figure out how to do it from the Helix panel controls. Thanks!
  14. Once again, you've helped me out - thanks! But truth be told, I didn't read all the documentation for all the FW releases... when I get a chance I'll look through them. Thanks again!
