Gone and Done it

Recommended Posts

well after lusting after a Helix for almost a year ive finally pulled the trigger.

 

been following the forums avidly since it was announced last year, put off from getting one by the initial porblems that many were having, then couldnt get one due to availability in the uk, then joined a new band and wanted to keep my rig stable till i got used to all the material.

 

got my hands on one on demo for the first time today and blown  away, even with just a cpl of the presets it was great, the marshall sounds were so much more real than my previous PRO HD.

 

the last year or so ive been using a Blackstar Series one 200 head and a 2x12 cab and a large pedal board with external effects as well, im very much hoping that the HELiX will replace all that, to be fair carrying a 60lb head and rig around  is destroying my aging body :)

 

cant wait to dig into it and get it running  !!!!! combined with my Variax im hoping its going to be a total workhorse

Congratulations.  If you're already used to the ProHD you probably won't have much of a learning curve.  I've had mine a while and I'm still learning some new tricks and such...but that's part of the beauty of it...

Congrats!  You should have no problem with the learning curve!  Helix is just dirt simple to me.

I never seem to fight the device or the computer programming interface.

 

Snapshots just plain ROCK!!!

Welcome Nemo & Ditto what Glideman said. There are a few things wanted and needed added or fixed, but all in all helix is a great guitar unit i think.
