Bejesus holy smokes!
pubuss, 23.09.2019
I mean why did I waited so many years to switch to Helix Floor!!!

I do abuse mostly cleans, sparkly Fenderish type tones and this thing does it better than I expected! It's not about the metal tones, I do not care how awesome they are. But the clean single coil things you can get out of this unit is mindboglinly good.

I can't say Helix + Headrush's 108 FRFR feels in hands and sounds to my ears anything but the same as a proper valve amp with 1x12 cab next to it. Can't feel the difference so many speak so loudly.
One thing though worth mentioning that Helix does all and weights nothing! That is always good for your back and for travel conveniance.

For those who are interested, Helix Native is nothing like Helix floor, the zero latency and matched input preamp of the floor unit completely changed the perception of Helix software to me.

Can't recommend this enough to anyone, absolutely game changer in my case. Easy to use, sounding outstandingly good, being reliable with perfect warranty service is a must nowadays!

Game Changer Product, NO QUESTIONS ASKED!
Xiphos49, 01.02.2020
I am a guitarist of 14 years and it's been years since I last used a multi-effect pedal, and when I asked a community to advise what's been new lately, everyone said the same exact thing "trust me, spend a little more, get yourself a Helix and rest your heads forever!" and boy were they completely right!

The Helix is really the most complete multi-effect pedal I've personally seen, it has a line/path on which you can mod anything from preamps to cabs to effects to EQs to impression pedals to dynamics etc. etc. All while being able to assign each mod of the path to its own stomp pedal.

Ask any guitarist who has used this product, I bet you anything not ONE single person says they wasted a penny on it, it opens up so many doors it's absolutely insane, the user interface is SO clear and easy to use that you'll be enjoying making new presets and testing things all the time!

As for Thomann themselves, excellent service, absolutely professional customer service, I never had to write them an email even, everything is immediately resolved through their live chat and I felt absolutely safe to do business with them!

Easy to use and Great processed sound.
T_2_GOO, 13.02.2020
After reading various reviews decided to purchase Line 6 Helix in lieu of a Kemper profiler. I think I made the correct decision. Very easy to start using and some rather good amp , cab and effects combinations. I managed to get good acoustic guitar settings also. So very useful for bass , electric guitars (single coil and humbucker) and also acoustic. Only downside is a lot of distorted amp models but just turn down the gain.

Two tips that is very important however !! When you get the new Helix it will likely not have the latest software version loaded. (likely to be version 3.0) Simply download the Line 6 Updater program and then link Helix with PC with supplied USB cable. KEY points are :-

1. Read the Update instructions carefully and don't try any shortcuts.
2. Make sure you link to PC using a NON-HUB USB port. Otherwise Helix not recognised. (non-hub ports are usually at the rear of a PC)

Far beyond my dreams.

The Helix contains a variety of possibilities. I'm sure that every guitar player find his own sound and effects. Yet it is a quest to have everything adjusted correctly. My band members tell my that I never sound better than now with my Helix!!
