I’ve been using a Line 6 M13 through a Hot Rod Deluxe for some time now. It’s just getting to the point where the amp is too much. We use in-ears, and I constantly have to tweak volume to where it’s not too loud for stage volume but still sounds OK. Plus the portability factor...a HRD isn’t super heavy but it IS a piece of gear to lug around. So here’s my thoughts: With the M13 I can run only 4 effects at a time. Truthfully I never use more than 3. If the Helix Stomp will allow for six blocks, wouldn’t that be the same capability? One block for the amp, one for the cabinet, and four left over for effects? Here’s my biggest niggle though - UI. I gotta admit that - even though the M13 isn’t recent technology, having all 12 switches available at a time is pretty handy. Can the Stomp - with only three switches - be even remotely usable as a complete rig? Can you really only have three patches available at a time? That seems a bit limiting. I’m not a soundscape kind of guy - not big into all kinds of effects. So I don’t need a bajillion options. I don’t record or do anything with a PC. Pretty old school, actually. Clean, crunch, and solo tones are typically all I need. Occasionally I have some weird stuff based on the song, but that’s only the case in about 10% of the songs we do as a cover band (variety - a little bit of everything from the fifties to today, rock and a little country). I’m just wondering if it’s time to ditch the tube amp. I don’t want to have any other pedals or any sort of pedalboard - even though I’m on TGP I’m not a gear head, lol. I’d love it if just the Stomp and the Stomp alone would work. With all of the effects and models it should have all the capacity I would need, right? I’d really appreciate your thoughts, and thanks!
