    This is pretty much what I do - it would replace a single DI Preamp with a whole box full with effects...

  • Be interesting to see people A/B compare the HX Stomp and the Headrush gigboard objectively...

    Well that might be me in a week or two. I'm looking to upgrade my GT-100 for something smaller and easier to program. Like all this stuff, it's not about the best unit, or the most models or the biggest list of effects, but about your personal needs and the best unit for that.

    I was about to get the HX Effects but seeing this I think I'll wait and get the added amp effects with the stomp. If pricing is what others suggest it isn't too much but more options.  Me likey :-)

  • I’ve just realised it’s basically a POD!!!!!
    It's a bit like the Helix Floor which I have, it can be any number of things depending on how you want to go. I completely agree with you, I also thought of it as the POD 2018, except it already has the switches built in. In terms of Line 6 heritage, it is the M5++ or the M9- , its a DL4 or MM4 etc, a mini Helix, the Helix for non modelling guitarists, and last but not least, the perfect DSP expansion box for a Helix/LT/HX FX user.

    is it crazy how saying sentences backwards creates backwards sentences saying how crazy it is?

    I hope it comes down a bit, at the price I might as well just get a H9. Too many choices haha

    Two totally different things.  For me a thing the size of this that sounds like a Helix is perfect.  Well actually not perfect for me, would have preferred a few more buttons, but I can see why they have done it like this.
    See not for the way I use it, I'm just looking for an updated M5 I can use for chorus or verb via midi switching :) Thats why i was hoping it would be the HX effects in a smaller unit.

  • I've just watch a few videos.. it seems bank UP/DOWN can be achieved by pressing switch 1 and 2 (or 2 and 3) simultaneously...

    The obvious purchased would be the Mission SP1 L6 to bolster controls, which adds £150 approx

    I have 2 Bespeco latch/unlatch pedals, like the Boss ones. Would they work for banking up and down?

    If you don't want amp models, surely the HX FX would be better? I really don't need amp and cab sims, just something else for me to get bogged down in.

    This is adorable though
    I think the benefit is you could send the output to the PA or a recording interface, hence the amp sims. It means you could just need a pedal board and a guitar. No humping heavy amps.
    Are these the same amp and cab sims as the Helix? Are they any good?
    Yes, yes, and according to most people, yes.

  • It’s interesting that it has the colour screen included. It seems a little odd that they missed that off the hxfx as there’s no doubt it makes navigation really easy. I assume it was a size constraint but given it’s on the smaller one it feels like the hxfx is missing out a bit there.

    Give me the HX Effects in the Stomp size then I can finally retire my M5. 
    This is basically what I want
    Me too, it would replace the G3 in my life

    I'd it had an XLR in it would kill the  acoustic singer-player pedal market! (Comp, para eqs, vocal reverb etc)

    I vaguely remember reading somewhere that you're better using external DI boxes after these kinds of units when plugging into a PA in case the mixer is faulty and sends a current back down the cable or something like that? As then only your DI box would be damaged and not your expensive kit? That could be complete crap though
    If there's anything good about me, I'm the only one who knows

    The only current coming down from the mixer would be phantom power and that shouldn't cause any issue (although ironically in Helix full fat it does )

    Wouldn't you then be looking at used helix lt for that kind of money?
    The Bigsby was the first successful design of what is now called a whammy bar or tremolo arm, although vibrato is the technically correct term for the musical effect it produces. In standard usage, tremolo is a rapid fluctuation of the volume of a note, while vibrato is a fluctuation in pitch. The origin of this nonstandard usage of the term by electric guitarists is attributed to Leo Fender, who also used the term “vibrato” to refer to what is really a tremolo effect.

    I'm surprised this hasn't appeared on YouTube yet. Normally such announcements are beaten by videos by Andertons, Ola, et al all appearing within the same hour as an embargo ends. 
    There's an Anderton's video that went up yesterday :)

    So for everyone asking why they should buy this instead of a Helix Floor or LT or even a HXFX for that matter, I'll be putting together a proper comparison/ argument for each over the next couple of days. 

    Just landed back from 2 weeks in LA and have a 3 hour train ride so a bit fried. Need to get home, do some washing, fix the freezer and have a sit down wee. As soon as thats all done, I'll get something down for anyone that is confused where every product sits etc. 

    I play guitar and take photos of stuff. I also like beans on toast.

  • I recently got an HX Effects which is still within the return period. Now wondering about returning it and getting one of these. I’m not a big effects user so the 6 blocks limit should not be an issue. Part of the appeal with the HX was the (relatively) small form factor, and this beats it comfortably on that score. And it would give me a chance to explore whether I’m interested in going down the amp modelling route.

    I suppose the disadvantage would be less ease of use, quite an important one given my technical ineptitude, but on the whole this looks a better fit for me than the HX Effects.

    No reason you can’t use an XLR-TRS
