    Happy New Year everyone :)

    I got into this band that plays a couple of SRV tunes, so I went back to listen to his stuff. I realized the tone I had was not really that close, decided to build a new one and this is what I have so far.

    Wow, great tone and playing! I'm pretty happy with my AX8 but these Helix clips sound great.

    Cool! Can you post the preset the Line 6 site and tell us what IR (if not a stock model)?

    Thanks a lot everyone! :)

    Not stock. I used one of the Allure Tweed IR as a starting point and tweaked it using EQ. I'm still tweaking, I'm also adding a few things like Fuzz and the Vibratone thing, but I'll post it soon.

    Great playing and the tones sounds very SRV - but your tone is really in your hands! Great playing!

    yessiree Bob!!!! Your playing is excellent, and the tone is great. Can't ask for much more than that.
