Picks inside Helix - child's play

Recommended Posts

Well, my 4 year old decided it would be fun to put daddy's picks (5+) in the slot under the expression pedal ;)  I thought a Helix component had broken off or something.

 

I'd like to take it apart to get them out, but don't want to void the warranty.  I guess there's no harm since they're nylon, but I'd like them out if possible.

 

Maybe I can just remove the expression pedal by taking the allen bolt out and shake them to the slot to fish them out, but I would worry that I would lose washers inside the Helix.

 

Does it really void the warranty if I take the bottom panel off?

Only if you announce on a forum hosted by the guys who get to decide the fate of your warranty following your self-performed pickectomy...;)

Ha, I considered that.  I also considered DI riding in on his white horse saying "go ahead bro, free the picks".

I think that's considered child abuse these days....... oh wait... you meant he should do that to the Helix.    :)
