  1. Hi all, I'm new this forum. So I'm looking into get a new amp, but right now it seems like Line 6 has some very good options: Helix, FireHawk 1500, Spider V. (Yes I know the Helix isn't an amp but I'll get to it). I'm leaning more towards the FireHawk just because my last experience with a Spider didn't go too well. However, after watching videos of the Firehawk and doing some research, it's using some outdated amp models/effects and the distortion doesn't sound too great on it. Do online reviews not do this amp justice or are the effects simply outdated? As for the Helix, it seems to be using more updated modeling technology, and even though it isn't an amp per se, I can still use it at home and use it through PA monitors or other speakers at a venue. From my understanding, Line 6 is in on the Helix for the long haul, it's just more expensive and doesn't suit the need of having an immediate amp I suppose. What are your overall opinions of the FireHawk 1500, and prior to your purchase, if you had to choose, would you go for the Helix instead? (As a side, does the FireHawk 1500 have any glaring issues? I've been using a Peavey Vypyr 60W Tube and although it sounds decent, the amp has had so many technical issues that it's been a struggle to play for the last 6 years or so. Only reason I'm switching amps now is because I have the money to do so.)
