  1. Really? That sounds like a great option! How is that set up? Thanks
  2. LOL! Well, any input on the best way to do it?
  3. Looking to use a boss tuner with the Helix. Besides direct what would be the best way? I’m using the VDI cable and a variax. Any help would be appreciated. Maybe using a send/return block? Thanks
  4. ditto.... I'm sick of setting up my amp, mics and Eq'ing every time. No more amps for me, at least for live playing. But I do have to say, headphone quality will have a huge impact on what you hear. The cheapos can't handle the sound unless played at very low volume.
  5. Call me crazy but I'm about to reshape the neck on my 89F. Mainly the heel which I feels could afford a little more reach into the higher frets. Does anyone know what kind of finish is used on the JTV89F neck? Korean made. I could just refinish the while neck but if I could match the finish a spot blend would be a lot easier....and faster! I'll post pictures of the process. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
  6. As I am updating to version 2.12 I was wondering.... there's always new amps with every update, Guitar and Bass. More than I'll ever need or even have time to try out. But are there any acoustic amps due in the future OR there are some already and I missed it? In any case, besides acoustic IR's what else would be a good option to just use the Helix with a regular acoustic guitar?
  7. Thanks everyone for the input. Like I thought, EQ may be the best solution. Would you guys suggest a simple EQ per patch? Should I put it right after the cab? Thanks!
  8. Thanks for the input. Do you suggest Global EQ settings or per patch? Would you mind giving me an example?
  9. Hey guys, I play in a small church band. Drums, acoustic guitar, keys a violin and my Helix/Variax rig (and vocals!). I play straight into the PA and the sound is pretty decent. The problem I'm having is my guitar isn't really cutting through the mix. The sound guy may not be the best and I have tried to ask him to keep the lead guitar sound in mind but to no avail. I'm starting to think some EQ'ing may help but I'm not really sure what to do.Intro's or if its just me and the acoustic guitar sound good but if the whole band is playing my leads get drowned by the other instruments... This is a church band and of course I don't want to have to blast the electric guitar just to cut through but I'd like to be heard. We play with in-ear monitors so as far as I can tell everything sounds perfect to me but the audience is not hearing the same as the band. Its what I've been told and what I've heard from the recordings. Any words of advice?
  10. JCM800 is one of my favorite amps. I'd also love to see if someone can replicate this sound as with the AXE. I love my Helix but I can't quite get there....
  11. I was one of the people that found the tuner not to my liking when I first got the Helix so I plugged in my guitar to a Boss tuner. Then 2.0 update came in and the tuner GREATLY improved. Its still jumpy but a heck of a lot better. I have faith Line6 will keep on working on it as on everything else. I wish it was like my Boss tuner but hey, it does the job....
  12. I got 12 feet only. Trust me, its worth it. If you want Line6's cable it me up $20 shipped its yours..... but you'll have to live with it!
  13. I think their default shipping may be higher but you have the choice at checkout to select USPS shipping. Mine came to $26 shipped.
  14. I just tried the new Line 6 2204 Amp and got pretty close! Roll back the tone knob and use the neck pickup and you'll get November Rain solo!
  15. BTPA cable arrived today already!! YES!!! what a difference. Recommend all the way! Thanks Steve!
  16. It helps when the wife doesn't notice all the different cases....trust me.
  17. Just a matter of preference. I have a few cases with Tolex outers that match my Helix case and I'd like to keep it the same...
  18. I'd like to get a hard shell case for my JTV-89F. Would like a rectangular case with some storage compartments for cables and such but haven't seen many available. About $200 budget. I'd prefer molded inside but not an ABS case.....Any suggestions? Thanks.
  19. Thanks Steve I ended up ordering the BTPA cable as you recommended. Will report back once I get it!

    I struggled with the first version of the tuner also but this 2.0 seems to have made it a lot better. I feel tuning with a 12th fret harmonic works a lot better IMO.
  21. I've downloaded all the updates thus far and every single time its a bit of a struggle to find the actual download as well as the whole upgrade itself. Yes, I agree it could be a bit easier....
