    Can you plug-in headphones into Powercab plus 2x12?

    Hi Ulef, Absolutely I’ve come to the same conclusion. I’ve ordered my powercab so looking forward to it. I’ve been using the a pair of line 6 L3t’s up till now both as studio monitors and for live use so I’m looking forward to trying the powercab. How have you found the powercab? Cheers Mark

    Can you plug-in headphones into Powercab plus 2x12?

  5. Hi my question is can you plug-in headphones into a power cab plus 2x12 and listen to the cabs speaker emulations etc? Cheers Mark
  6. Hi, I’m looking for some help with buying one or two Powercab plus. At present I have a L3t and L3m which I run my Helix through, it’s a bit of an overkill because I don’t gig, I bought them to use as studio monitors with the option to gig in the future which is now unlikely. The Powercab plus seems the way to go for home and small venues but I’d like to know the sound quality when playing music through them in flat mode for monitoring recordings and jamming, I have some small Alesis 520 monitors as well. I would sell my Stagesource speakers if the Powercab plus will serve my purposes. Thanks Mark

    Helix into amp input from line out on amp

    Thank you this is so helpful. I think it will be much easier just to put the Helix in the front of the amp like a regular pedal board. The only thing I’ve found when doing that is it’s noisy. There seems to be some electrical interference somewhere, any ideas? thanks again
  9. Hi can any one help? I have a fender tweed amp that has no effects loop but has a line out which bypasses the speaker for recording purposes, computer etc. I would like to connect my Helix to use the effects only with effects before and after my amp for live work with an impulse response block. Can this be done? cheers mark

    Help with Plexi Variac with Helix

    Hi Can anyone tell me how to get the the Plexi Variac tone from the XT with the Helix for Lincoln Brewster type tones? Thanks Mark
  11. Thanks so much for all the feedback I really eppreciate it.
  12. Thanks for that really good to hear that the 500 is worth getting and I agree I’m not going to bother with the transplant. cheers mark
  13. Ah, that sounds like to much work when I can just enjoy it for what it is. Any thoughts on diffiferences it sound quality of guitars between the more expensive Variaxes to the 5000? Is it possible to upgrade the electronics, they don’t make it easy for lefty players.
  14. Thanks everyone for your help, the guitar has hardly been played. I wanted to know if the electronics etc are the same in the new models as this 500 as I’ll probably ditch the 500 body and install the electrics and hardware in a strat build. Will it also be compatible to all the new software etc. many thanks Mark
  15. Hi can someone help please, does the Variax 500 lefty Sound the same as all the others. I have the opportunity to buy one and I’m not sure good they are. cheers mark
