I recently purchased a Helix floor model. I have been using Marshalls since the mid 70’s and own a 69’ plexi, a 72’ 50 watt jmp, a DSL-50, several DSL-40’s as well as a DSL-1Cr combo and a few Marshall code modeling amps. In adition I have a number of cabinets including a mid 70’s 1960B checkerboard with blackback Celestion 25watt G12M speakers. I have been very happy with my Marshalls.
that being said, I purchased a Helix floor. My goal is to get a very portable rig but still have that Marshall sound. I am running the Helix into a EV ZLX12P powered monitor. I went thru the existing presets and found a few that are ok....the clean sounds on the Helix are good. The lead sounds all sound somewhat sterile....and are missing the Marshall bite. I need help.
i have started with the Brit 2204 preset. Please help me dial in this unit......not impressed so far. My 72’ JMP50 with the 1960b cab with blackback slays my Helix....so far. I really want the Helix to work..
thanks in advance.
