marmatkat Posted December 6, 2022 Share Posted December 6, 2022 Hi Folks. I've been gigging with an LT since 2016, but I've always been one of two "melodic" (I could use a better term) instruments, either another guitar or keys. Now I've joined a neighborhood cover band (no studio work, just live shows) where it'll be drums, bass, guitar (me), and a non-playing singer. By nature I'm not an equipment tweaker (more of a just-the-basics type), and until now I've made do with a small set of general presets (clean, crunch, saturated; American, Brit, etc.) with a few stomps that give me enough flexibility to fill my role. But with my new position as sole guitarist, I'd like to better leverage the Helix's power. I'd love to get your thoughts on where I could stretch a little and apply the Helix to this situation. For example, I have a slight reverb on all patches (a recommendation I found here) but I don't use dual cabs, fancy paths (other than a continuation on the second line to get more CPU), multiple amps at once, delays, etc. Thanks! (Note that getting a fuller tone is part of my strategy, with the arguably more crucial one being coming up with great arrangements, working closely with the bass player, soloing differently, etc.) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
