    I did not until I saw it in person. It does look nice in person.

    One a side note I heard Reinhold is starting a new fashion designed clothes line, lol. NOT!!!!

    Couple of things to try:
    1) Since you're getting noise with nothing in the loop, try replacing the preamp tube that drives the loop (I assume it's tube-driven?)

    After that, if you still get hum with the Helix...

    2) Make sure your amp and Helix are all plugged into the same AC circuit (i.e. don't plug your amp in one outlet, and the Helix in a different one across the room or a different distro box or whatever)
    3) Hit the ground lift switch on your Helix

    Paolo,

    I couldn't tell from the video. I know you're not running any effects in the loop, but do you have a cable connecting the send and return of the loop in place?

    That's exactly how I run Blue and Red on my 101B. Gain at 9 o'clock, boost on (or off for cleaner tones). For speakers, I know many don't care for the V30, but I'm pretty sure the 101B at least was specifically voiced for it. From my experience, that's the speaker it sounds best with. I've tried other combinations over the years, but my Bog V30 4x12 cab is just 'it'.

    hmmm if I was to go down this road I would be running my FX8 in 4CM. I hope the loop
    is not an issue. I use "humbuster" cables and even my JVM is pretty quiet.
    that is pretty noisy

    Something's up, because I'm not getting any excess noise with mine. I run a Hardwire DL8 and TC Spark Mini in my loop. I'm just using a Pedalsnake for all my connections as well. Nothing "Fancy".

    Sure do Max! :(
    It's gotta be a tube issue.

    Arright, that is just a badass lookin' little rig! Ugh! I'd have to sell my Shiva rig to have any hope of affording one of these, but man is it tempting!

    The rock tones are really disappointing there, kind of muddy and overly dark, lacking edge/bite, and clairty. IMHO. It's appropriate for some contexts but, man those really do not work for my preferences. Could be speaker choice or dialing, but that is a GAS killer.

    I would defer to playing one. Especially at volume. It is an amazing rock amp. I have owned a ton of holy grail rock amps. This amp is killer.

    :( I must not have made the cut for the first batch, I haven't heard anything from my rep yet.

    That new cab looks awesome.

    It’s going to be stupidly expensive in the UK but think i’ll have to get one.

    Agreed. Also remember that although Blake's videos are great... He is running through a Universal Audio OX Box if I remember correctly. So, it's not an "amp in the room sound you're hearing".

    Finally after doing some more tests , I decided to return the amp...
    I’m very disappointed to be honest...

    Not a great feeling being disappointed. Sorry to hear that man.

    What did you think of the tones of the amp? Love it just meh?

    Here's my set-up. I have been using an Atma with this cab (112CPS). I have not tried the 3534 at a rehearsal or gig yet.
