7+ years with the Helix.. in Helix Posted April 25 On 4/25/2023 at 7:43 AM, Paulzx said: This is interesting. The FM9 is a great unit for sure, but I don't think I would give up my Helix floor at this point just due to familiarity and functionality. My impression is that if you're playing anything other than high gain, it may not noticeably be any different in terms of sound quality. Are the FM9 Marshall tones noticeably any better than the Helix, does anyone know? The FM9 factory Marshall presets I played were 100% outstanding - dynamics are wonderful - but not sure they are any better than Helix. My problem with Marshall tone is that my style of playing always leans me towards the Fender tones, which I can dial in pretty good. I typically rely on 3rd party for good Marshall tones.. John Nathan Cordy (YouTube) has repeatedly demonstrated that yea, Helix can nail down Marshall. But, then again, he can nail jello to the wall.
