PSA - Line 6 Helix Tour

What's Hot
rossyamaharossyamaha Frets: 2359
Hi guys and gals. Just a heads up on the Helix Tour we're about to embark on. It starts tomorrow at PMT Bristol and the Mansons show on Saturday (I'll also be at that one with THR heads). Throughout October and November, Paul Hindmarsh will be travelling the length and breadth of the country. I will have a full list of confirmed dates/ venues for you by tomorrow.

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

  • Boo, I was hoping this would be the usual type pedal board tour.

    no chance of the forum being a lent a unit that we could send around the members for a week at a time?
    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.

    That would be ideal for a lot of people but the big problem is stock. Doesn't look like we will have free stock (as in units not sold into dealers) this side of Christmas.

    I would suggest that, should such a thing ever be realistic, we put a minimum fret count of several hundred on it.

    It'd be a lovely idea, though...however, until then, I'm just going to hope that the middle of the country doesn't get neglected on this tour like it usually does ;)

    I hope not too, that's two sign-ups for a Midlands roadshow, dying to hear one!

    @rossyamaha be a good fellow and drop off my Helix with PMT please.

    Or even better, can you and Paul pop over the bridge to Sunny Wales and deliver it to me in person?

    :P

  • Egads....I wish somebody would realise that there's a whole load of "Midlands" over to the right of Birmingham, and there are a fair few musicians there. Just once.

  • @rossyamaha Any idea on the timing for these events? Are they morning, afternoon, evening etc? I'd like to get to the Manchester one (Salford actually, but only patriotic Salfordians care) but I'm tied up most of the day. God forbid I should end up having to go to Liverpool; even SHEFFIELD would be preferable.

    I know there are plenty of areas missing and they may still be filled up with dates yet to be confirmed. The problem is, we're only doing stores that have signed up for Helix at the mo. The more we get, the more dates will happen. Watch this space. ;-)

    Don't know about times on anything I'm afraid. You'll have to give the stores a quick shout to confirm.

    Great stuff, hopefully I can get to York one and have a listen  :D
    (not that I can afford to buy one though!)
    Always be yourself! Unless you can be Batman, in which case always be Batman.
    My boss told me "dress for the job you want, not the job you have"... now I'm sat in a disciplinary meeting dressed as Batman.

    Bugger, just seen this! PMT Bristol was the closest to me!
    I would love to change my username, but I fully understand the T&C's (it was an old band nickname). So please feel free to call me Dave.

  • Pretty sure it'll be Paul's own one, assuming it's the same unit he had for last month's Yamaha Soho demo?
