Hi all! I am new to the Line 6 family, have recently purchased a Line 6 Helix and am loving it and its flexibility! Now I want to move onto the Variax line of guitars, especially for the alternate tunings as I play in a cover band and we split between standard, 1/2 step, and full step down. Whilst at home I really enjoy the heavier side of music, in particular Drop B tuning... So the question is: Will the Variax Standard ($1400 AUD odd) be able to do this sort of tuning (Drop B) or do I need to go the Shruiken model...? Price isn't really a major issue, as you get what you pay for in everything, its more that I didnt want the 'full metal guitar look'... Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Cheers Trent
So I'd like to think im not completely stupid, however I got my Shuriken today. charged the battery, finally got to plug it in and it sounds great....while in stand tuning I noticed that when I change either the model knob and selector switch or tuning knobs to something that isn't Standard it sounds terrible. Ok, I thought maybe it just needs some adjustments. Set up work bench, plugged it in and try to play around with the settings/tunings. First thing I notice if if drop the low E to D and play it, no change, however if I play high E there is a change.....? It seems that all of the strings are in reverse, confirmed by changing the A string and the B changes not A.... I've logged a support ticket for this but is there something im missing here a setting I've inadvertently set? All the standard tuning set ups play perfect its just the alternate tunings are completely out of whack. Attach a soundfile and pictures of the tunings in work bench before and after Test.m4a
