While I dont use it normally, I have tried Helix with my Mesa Stiletto (Marshall clone) when I was experimenting. It is certainly harsh with Helix, especially with my Mesa Black Shadow open back 112 cab (Celestion GT-75 modified I think). Super bright and harsh. Things that made it better... - Helix preamp only models - Turn the presence down on the real amp - Using my Celstion V30 cab (darker speaker) For my tastes, I found Helix more agreeable with my 6L6 based amps and V30 speakers in general. you say that you turned down your presence on your Marshall, in order to do that you would have had to plugged into the front of the head right? These units are made to use the 4 wire setup, you use your fx send/recieve from your helix and go straight to the power amp bypassing the Marshall's pre-amp. Hope I understoop what your wrote correctly, if this is so read a vid on the 4 cable/wire setup and try your Mesa/.Marshall that way you may be pleased :-) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
