  1. Found a full Helix and Powercab 112 plus locally for $1200. It's way more capability than I need, as this is a professional rig for sure, but I just couldn't justify the Stomp for it's obvious limitations (blocks available and foot switches) and the HX Effects because I'm not super in love with the Blues Junior. Don't get me wrong, the Blues Junior is a fantastic budget friendly amp, but I wanted to go digital and I think the BJ was getting in my way. I think we had some interaction over at TGP, so thank you for the help!
  2. I recently picked up a Line 6 M5 after seeing it on so many rig rundowns and I love it, but I feel like it is slightly limiting (one 1 effect at a time, no looper, etc.) I knew this going in, but figured I'd be able to get past it but I have found myself going down the HX Stomp/HX Effects rabbit hole. I have a Fender Blues Junior amp, so the HX Effects would be the natural next step up from the M5/M9/M13. The Stomp would give me headphone capability, though, which is nice. I am a bedroom noodler, so this doesn't necessarily have to be super rugged. What do you guys think? How do you like the Stomp over the HX Effects or vice versa? I am leaning towards the HX Effects because of my existing amp and the number of foot switches over the Stomp, but maybe the 2x foot switches on the Stomp isn't that limiting?
  3. The capabilities of all of these units are great - exactly what I am looking for. My concern is if they will work correctly into my Blues Junior (1-channel amp) with no effects loop. I am getting mixed reactions to say the least (I am asking the same question on Reddit). I understand that the amp sims/cabs are not going to work as well as they would on an FRFR speaker, but will these units work with my specific amp. A lot of people say get the HX Effects if you are already happy with your amp, and that's great, but will it work on an amp with only 1 input. The chain would be guitar -> HX (Stomp/Effects/Pod Go) -> Fender Blues Junior. No 4-cable method. Strait into the amp. Will this work?
  4. This is probably completely hashed out at this point, but I am going to ask anyways for 100% clarification. I recently started back playing again after a 10 year hiatus. I started back with an EBMM Cutlass and a Fender Blues Junior. I started buying analog pedals and quickly realized how out of hand it can get, so I started to think a multi-fx unit is probably the way to go, at least until I figure out what kind of effects I like to use. The Pod Go caught my eye due to the price, although I do like the HX Stomp as well. The Fender Blues Junior does not have an effects loop, so the 4-cable method would not work. I would be going directly into the front of the amp. I am a bedroom guy - is the Pod Go a good option for me? Should I be looking at HX Effects vice the Pod Go? What about the Stomp? I just need a little bit of steerage - thank you!
