Selling my 4 mo old HELIX....

Recommended Posts

up on Reverb.com for $1200, includes my IR package and my presets, pro bound double side sheet protected manual for Helix and PC/Mac editor. Still making payments on it so nothing lower. Never gigged, never out of the studio/sound room, always dust covered.

 

Why? It's not that I do not dig the unit and get some great tones, just that I have an insatiable desire to keep changing my rig. If no takers I will just keep using it but I have some ideas I want to try. If I let it go I do not have to deal with two payment things and having a gear conflict of too much stuff to use.

Good luck in selling it and hope you find that holy grail of tone we are all looking for.

Oh no, you will miss the next firmware update, which may be the Holy Grail/Droid that you seek. Ah, well never mind, you will never know - goodbye to the cruel world of Helix. Happy trails!

Good luck with the sale, I hope you get your asking price for it! I suspect it will sell well. Whatever you try next, I'd be interested to hear how things stack up for you as an experienced Helixer.

That's OK, I just sold it. I dig like the Helix once I got the right IRs it started really happening for me. It's just I am not 30 anymore and spending so much time tweaking and headphone work is something I need to start getting away from. The Helix has an infinite param adjust variability and I am getting where I cannot keep wrapping my head around so many options. I need to be able to just shut up and play my guitar, so I get to leave this website in peace. I do not want to say where my next gear acquisition will lead but I am deciding between two really amazing options. (Not Fractal or Kemper BTW) Anyway, so long to you Helix mavens, I enjoyed the forum and using the Helix. I hope the next upgrade rings the cow bell. Helix has a lot of potential but L6 has to take a hard turn away from the whole POD mentality and cheese effects thing. Not sure they can but they will sink or float on how they update the Helix. So long campers.

C'mon man! spill the beans!  What, a new Petrucci head maybe?  Gotta be good!

Good luck WF.  From what I saw, you really liked many aspects of the Helix, especially the ability to bring in your favorite pedals through the FX loops and the 4cm method of using your go-to cabinets.  But in the end it just wasn't quite the right fit for ya.

 

I do hope your next adventure into the tone wormhole delivers you to tone Nirvana.  Regardless, I hope you keep us informed of your adventures.

 

Best of luck and don't be a stranger.
