  1. I thought these JTVs where manufactured in Korea? Can't remember where I read that, though... My rep at Andertons now tells me they estimate April 2020, but nothing is confirmed yet. I don't understand, when the normal flow is returning, this still takes over 5 months.
  2. Andertons now indicates 31 January 2020 :( Don't know if this means all previous orders will be delivered then too or only the new ones, but this sucks! Not even a nice Christmas present then :-((
  3. Btw. + I asked my source again and he explained to me it was not so much that it wasn't possible to run through FOH, but more the fact that I wouldn't be able to hear myself. At that venue the monitor situation apparently sucks. So it makes sense to do it this way so at least I have the output of the Amp blowing at my knees :-D.
  4. Thanks! I just tested it and that works perfectly. Now the Volume Knob is not so sensitive and I can play with the Volume on the Helix and on the Amp to get the desired sound.
  5. Thanks for your reply. That's what I thought. I'll tell them that ;-). I just want to be prepared for when I get there. Excellent! I'll give this a try. Getting enough Volume will definitely not be the issue. It will be more about the amount of Volume that will be added with the slightest movement of the Volume knob on the Helix. I found that it becomes very sensitive and will increase the Volume a lot at the slightest touch.
  6. Hi everyone, I have a Helix Floor unit and in December I'll be using it for my first ever gig. I've been looking into Volume Leveling of patches and presets, but I can't seem to find any (pleasing) information about how to use the Volume knob on the Helix. The information I found so far suggests I should turn the Volume knob al the way up as I plug the Helix in Front-of-House (PA) and adjust it to get the right volume. Now, I've been told that at the venue of the gig there will be a mic'ed up Marshall half stack where I can plug the Helix Output into the FX Loop's Return to make use of the power section of the Amp (Front-of-House would probably not work out for some reason). I also should bypass any Speaker emulation in the Helix because it will sound weird this way. I tried a similar setup last night and found that my overall Volume went way up. I needed to set the Master Volume on the Amp to 1 and the Volume knob on the Helix to around 10 o'clock and that was already louder than before. Is this normal? Can anyone point me to good information about the use of the Volume knob on the Helix?
  7. Now the estimate delivery date is set back to 'unknown' again. I'll keep you posted.
  8. Estimated delivery for new orders on the Andertons website is now December 31, 2019.
  9. Of course. I made a typo. I ordered the JTV-89F :-). Mistake corrected ;-)
  10. Yes, I still see them in the catalogs of online stores, but they are marked 'unavailable for order'. I just think the retailer do not want to burn themselves on long waiting periods (which can not be estimated). But if they were discontinued they would have been deleted altogether. Good to know. I hope I can rock my JTV-89F with my Helix soon ;-)
  11. I ordered a JTV-89F last month on Andertons. The order was confirmed by Line6, but they cannot provide Andertons/me with an estimated delivery date. I'll keep you posted when I receive it.
