DugT Posted January 15, 2021 Share Posted January 15, 2021 I have a question about guitar tone but I'm wondering if it really doesn't matter because final tone is so adjustable with a Helix. For example, with a Helix can you have guitar pickups that are not hot enough? Instead of getting hotter pickups it seems to me you can crank up the gain, add boost or overdrive to get as much distortion as you want. Are there exceptions to this? Here is another example. For the middle 5 way switch position, I was wondering if here is much difference in tone between the two inner coils in parallel Vs. the two outer coils in parallel? I suspect not much and I also suspect that and difference in coil configuration. This graphic shows what I'm talking about. I wonder if I could even hear a difference. If anyone knows the answer to this it would save me some soldering trial and error. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
