Links to original modeled FX manuals and specs

Recommended Posts

I'm printing up the manual and cheat sheet for the Helix (c'mon....27th).  I'm a documentation junkie with a serious highlighter addiction. My understanding (as read from other threads) is that the interface for specific amps and stomp boxes are modeled on the interface for the originals.  

 

In another thread I suggested that we compile a list of links for the original stomps, amps, etc., that are modeled in the Helix. Here is what I have so far.  Please note that Line 6 originals are not part of this list.

 

I've done my level best finding actual source content.  I've included notes where I felt they were needed.  Feel free to jump on correcting anything or adding items.

 

If any of the L6 guys happen to feel the love, I'm number 40 in line at MF, my Gear Head is Tom at 3077, and I would LOVE to be bumped up on that list. :P

Hey thanks for the list I wasn't sure what are some of those were supposed to be because I've not been in the loop when it comes to stomp boxes for the past probably 20 years since I used and SGX2000 express since early 90s and 11 rack the past couple years

I loved my SGX, but it just never quite did it for me tone-wise.  It was a pioneering system insofar as multi-effects went.
