    Easy access to back row buttons!

    They also make them out of aluminum in different colors. Not sure how they'd respond to the "Touch" control though.

    Yeah, sorry guys. I was not aware of the capacitance feature on the Helix. Perhaps these might be useful for live performance only? They install in minutes via 3 screws. Thanks for the input. :)

    +Rocco_Crocco - I'm not sure what you mean. The buttons attach on top of the existing button via 3 screws. I haven't had any issues at all.

    Easy access to back row buttons!

    I just discovered Barefoot Buttons. I recently purchased a Firehawk and have difficulty hitting the back row of buttons without accidentally pressing the first row beneath it. After a little research, I found these little guys. Incredibly and artfully manufactured. They cost about $10 each (including shipping). A total lifesaver for live performance. (I ordered the Version 1 "Tallboy Acrylic" ones.) Although I purchased these for my Firehawk, I bet they'd be very useful to the Helix community. Please note that I am in no way affiliated to the company. Just a very happy customer. I had to share. Barefootbuttons.com

    You guys need to check these out... Barefoot Buttons. I recently purchased my Firehawk and have difficulty hitting the back row of buttons without accidentally pressing the first row beneath it. After a little research, I found these little guys. Incredibly and artfully manufactured. They cost about $10 each (including shipping). A total lifesaver for live performance. Will work with any 3/8" button. Excellent for Firehawk, Helix and Pod HD. Please note that I am in no way affiliated to the company. Just a very happy customer. I had to share.

    Tips for transparent overdrive?

    I found the "Clean + Boost" works really well. It doesn't have that "nasal" sound, and you can dial in som gain/grit. It doesn't provide a lot of distortion which is why I like it. Hope that helps!

    Firehawk with DC Brick Power Supply?

    **Udate** I finally got my Firehawk FX and discovered that the 9v cables that attach to my DC brick do not fit. So... it's time to mount the cable under the pedalboard. Also, the 4 cable method into my Mesa Lonestar 2x12 sounds epic. Being a "Tube Guy" my whole career, I was skeptically optimistic to see if the amp sims feel and sound right. I'm very happy to say that the sounds I'm getting are legit. Best money I've spent in a while.

    Firehawk FX is abandoned

    "My pedalboard (a modified Showmaster 48 case) is very tidy with just a Line6 Relay G30, Pitchblack tuner, Firehawk and power supply block ;-)" Are you powering your Firehawk with a power supply block? And, if so, what power supply block are you using? Thanks!

    Firehawk with DC Brick Power Supply?

    Hello all, I just ordered my Firehawk and should receive it in a few days. My question is: Can I power my Firehawk with a DC Power Brick (ala Voodoo Lab, Joyo PL-2, etc.)? Or must I use the power brick that ships with it? I am planning on placing it on my pedalboard along side other pedals to use in the FX Loop (4 cable method). Going into a Mesa Lonestar 2X12. I searched through the forum to see if this was addressed, but found only references to Power Supply replacements. I am hoping that I can power my Firehawk with one of my DC power bricks. *fingers crossed* Thanks for any input!
