sosmusic Posted January 9, 2017 Share Posted January 9, 2017 Greetings all Just about to pull the trigger on a Helix or an Axe8. The long time Line 6 customer in me is leaning towards the Helix, especially since I have a JTV and a DT50 half stack. I'm very curious about the Axe8 as from what i can gather online from reviews and comparisons the Axe8 appears to have a very slight edge in modelling quality and tone. Getting to the point, with all the previous versions of the PODs you always had to put a compressor or a drive pedal in front the amp model to really get it sounding and feeling good and the gain really sizzling. As opposed to plugging into the real amp and rarely needing one. Is it still like this with the Helix ? I know this is a very subjective question, but a lot of Line6 users I know feel the same way. Unfortunately I'm unable to demo either in advance as no stores where I live will stock the Helix, and obviously Axe8 is by order only. Opinions and thoughts appreciated. Happy Monday !!!!!
