Variax Standard Drop Tunings

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

 

I am new to the Line 6 family, have recently purchased a Line 6 Helix and am loving it and its flexibility!

 

Now I want to move onto the Variax line of guitars, especially for the alternate tunings as I play in a cover band and we split between standard, 1/2 step, and full step down.

 

Whilst at home I really enjoy the heavier side of music, in particular Drop B tuning... So the question is:

 

Will the Variax Standard ($1400 AUD odd) be able to do this sort of tuning (Drop B) or do I need to go the Shruiken model...?

 

Price isn't really a major issue, as you get what you pay for in everything, its more that I didnt want the 'full metal guitar look'...

 

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

 

Cheers

 

Trent

The standard can get down there. One thing to keep in mind is that, when you pitch shift that much, the feel when playing the guitar will change.
