Very versatile and easy to use. I found the overdrive and distortion don’t quite cut it live as well as my analogue pedals can.
Easy to use and sounds great, fits in my gig bag, replaces my pedalboards
Pedal is incredible hence the 5 star review but GAK are truly awful... horrible company go to Andertons instead Brought a ‘brand new’ line 6 helix at £399.99 it works amazingly however this came to me second hand... pedal board tape on the bottom.. marks of use and the box had be opened. As you can imagine I was a bit upset that I paid full price for what was clearly a second hand item. Contacted GAK and they didn’t seem to care at all. The first person I spoke to on the phone made it seem that I was wrong and it was a demo version... ok even if that is so I don’t expect to pay full price for a demo’s item... unless stated in the advert which it was not. From the website i was made to believe I was buying a brand new Helix Effects unit at full £399 retail price. Usually I shop with Andertons as they are a great company and very helpful and only around the corner... however the weren’t getting any Helix effects in for about a month so I went with GAK... wish I had been patient and just waited to get from Andertons. I also took the liberty of speaking to someone who works at Andertons and told them the full story and they agreed with it me it and suggested I should have saved £100 or so depending on condition. As I said it works perfectly well and the effects are actually really good of modelling digital effects but my experience with GAK was terrible and I was expecting a brand new item. I feel I should be compensated in some way... even if it’s in store credit or something... that would show that GAK aren’t a terrible company but like I said i’ve not heard from them and whenever i called I was pawned off to different departments and nothing has happened. I’m left with a great sounding and working second hand product that I paid full whack for. If your happy with that and aren’t as picky as me... great GAK are the company for you. If you want honest pricings and amazing customer services go to Andertons... actually just go to Andertons anyway
What an incredible piece of guitar fabulousness. if only I had could have had one in the 1970's. modern day technology is amazing. Well done line 6
This unit has the ability to achieve some great tones. One star removed as the PC editing tool is not yet fully released by Line 6 and patches are not being shared (yet) on the line 6 website.
