    Amp X - the analog Kemper?

    Hey guys, I´ve been watching the NAMM Videos latelly and was surprised that there was almost nothing on the BluGuitar AMP X. There is a lot of coverage for the new Neural DSP Quad Cortez, but not much on the AMP X. Many thought it was like a 2.0 Version of the Amp 1, but actually it isn´t. It...

    Helix problem...Rhythm sounds a little "flangery"

    Hey guys, I have a problem at the moment when I play rhythm stuff on the low E-String. For my ear it sounds like there was a Flanger over the sound. I have no idea why that is, because there is no flanger involved. The solo sound is good, but the rhythm sounds weird. Any ideas why that is...

    Helix Help needed for "woody" "honky" Tone on Plexi/Bassman

    Hi guys, I need some help on how to dial in a specific Bluesrock sound. I am trying to get a very pure Plexi and Bassman patch. The tone I am looking for sounds a little hollow/honky and woody, I don´t have a better way to describe it. I achieved it once on the Headrush pedalboard, but I fail...

    New Helix LT Day!:)

    Hey guys, I am back home now with my new Helix LT. First impression is really good, but I have to say that the Headrush interface was a thousand times better (at least fo me). However, I really dig the tone, even the standard presets are not totally useless:) Right now I am updating the...

    The Official Headrush Pedalboard Thread

    At the moment I seem to be the only user within MLP with the Headrush pedalboard, but there is a lot of interest and scepticism regarding board, so I took up @frankv ´s advice and started the official HR Thread. I´ll be posting everything I´ll discover regarding the board, strengths, weaknesses...

    New Floormodeller incoming to me...:)

    ...and it´s not a Helix or an´s a Headrush Pedalboard:) I just thought I might give those guys a chance. The product got some updates like "Scenes" and still everybody seems to be bashing the board due to the past experiences with Avid and the 11R. Most people don´t have actual...

    Joe Bonamassa Fender Stratocaster 1959 and 1966 switch

    Hello guys, I am really in love with Joe Bonamassa´s music and I listen to the "Live at the greek theatre" album a lot at the moment. My favorite song is Hummingbird and he plays it on a 1966 Strat. There is a second version, where he plays it on a different Strat, I think it is a 1959...
