    Hmmmm....I'm still skeptical, but I'll try to keep an open mind. :hmm: I'd love to be able to use something light and leave me tube amps at home. That'd be great for my bad back!


    Like many others, I think the sound quality is pretty darned good these days, but the *thump* isn't there for me.

    You never know, I could be a 3ft tall midget tranny with big ol' tits like the bumper guards on a '57 Buick and a ZZ Top set of whiskers.

    Now, that's what you'll always think of when you see one of my posts.

    Cool, huh?

    No, but Aunt Millie can. She can eat corn on the cob through a chain link fence, too. The very essence of ladyhood. You can have her phone number if you want it.

    I know that digital has come a long way. Have heard some major acts that I grew up with, through the 70's. Groups who used big stacks. Plural. Walls of real loaded cabs.
    Then seeing them some 40-50 years later. Guitar tones,, obviously direct didn't have the same oomph. Was it the Digital? Was it the mix? Who knows? But it was crap.
    That said. I never heard a Helix that I'm aware of. I'm sure it would have to do with the type of guitar tones you are after. Everybody has their own idea of good tone. Mine tone is best. And your tone sucks.

    Love that story. take a line out of Bob Dylans How does it Feel,” Now you don't talk so loud
    Now you don't seem so proud”

    your buddy is questioning his ears now and all his preconceptions. Turnabout is fair play

    Welp, unless i just havent seen it, there is still do much disparity between patches. Ive never seen anyone but a tweaker able to set thrm up correctly. Until a unit has an auto level control for all patches, they fall woefully short. Imo
