I thought about buying some LEDs for my board but idk if it's worth going through the trouble

Underlighting implies that the light is under your pedal board. If the light is under your pedal board how do you see it?

JustRooster is this worth the $1400? 20 pedals seems like it would be more than $1400 in total but still Line 6 helix still seems pricey. 


I picked up the Line 6 Helix (the full-bore Helix, not the LT) on Craigs for $1050, box unopened.

I've spent an average of $200 per pedal (recent pedals -- the vintage pedals are currently worth more than that). By the time you buy/build a pedalboard, get all the little shorty cables, get the power setup going and then figure out some way to change more than one pedal at once, $1500 is gone. One of my "pedals" is a Two-Notes Torpedo C.A.B., used with the HD500x to add IRs and power amp sims; that pair of gizmos alone ran about $1050. Add a few Wampler pedals here and there...

It's definitely worth the price if that's the tool you're looking for. I think it's completely overkill for my purposes. I've honestly been thinking of selling it and getting a Firehawk FX and using the extra money to buy another guitar.

I still use my amps for my main sound. What I wanted as an "Every pedalboard I could ever want" rig, and I'm running it without amp sims into my amps via the four cable method so you can still use the FX loop. I've had several, several tubescreamers, and the Line 6 TS HD is absolutely up there with them. I actually like the Fuzz Face HD on the Line 6 better than my Dunlop and my Sun Face. I can't sing the praises of their pedal sims enough, they do a great job.

That said, all the pedal sims I use are also on the Firehawk FX. I still record using mics in front of amps. Just seems like for the same money I could have gotten what I needed in the lower model PLUS a backup HH guitar, which I need for the band I just joined. It's been an amazing pedalboard replacement.

If your goal is to use it as an amp sim and be your end-all rig, yeah, it's worth the $1,400.

This is absolutely the reason I bought it. Had 30ish pedals at about $200ish and kept sinking my paycheck on other ones to cover a niche sound for no real reason.

yah. as others have said, its really a be all end all unit. its your entire rig, except for the guitar itself. professional level boutique amp offerings can easily cost you over $1400. and if you play genres of music that rely heavily on effects, you are really throwing down some $. it is pricey in the sense that it is a big one time investment, but over time it is ultimately less money for the same end product.

ugh i need to stop hyping it up or i'm going to end up buying one.

Every amp responds differently to different pedals. I used different compressors, boosts, overdrives and fuzzes with almost every different amp. My Vox AC15 takes preamp gain in a vastly different way than my Carvin X100B, which are both very different from my Musicman 65. I'm likely to buy a 5150 later this week to play with a heavier project, which would likely take gain differently than the previous three. Something like the Helix allows you to forgo amps all together, or to have one of each style of dirtbox, boost, EQ, compressor, noisegate, etc. I use it at a pedalboard replacement. I got tired of the dance of patching cables around between a couple pedaltrains and just wanted presets for my different projects.

If you have just your one project and your one sound, maybe you don't need 20. If you play with different folks in different styles, 20 can struggle to cover all the bases.

Another reason I'm sort of drawn to the Firehawk is the phone setup. I think it'd be neat to put together pedalboards on the shitter at work and then try them out and tweak when I got home.

actually yes. well i don't, i use multi effects so i can program different delay times and combinations in one unit. but say you have a 5 song set list and you need a different delay algorithm and repeat timing for each song. knob fiddling and tap tempo is a dangerous game in a fast paced professional music environment, especially if you have to do both at the start of each song. not even considering if you use multi delays like U2's .8 sound. also not even considering programming reverb or any other effects either.

most of my patches involve a .8 delay somewhere at various intensities so if i did not want to go the mfx route, i would need either a programmable delay or just multiple delay pedals. i like to be able to click one button each song and load up all my time based and modulation effects, it allows me to focus on my playing rather than having to tap dance and knob fiddle. although 5 separate delays is kind of silly, 5 of them at around $100 each gets you a strymon. although people have this "is it worth it" conversation about the strymon units too.

ty. just keep in mind the smallest size i see is 20 inches, which covered cleanly the top of my classic 2. i think you can cut the strips to fit but i am not sure.

Yeah I ordered two 20in strips. I'll probably splice them together so they both work with the same remote then I can run a row on the top and bottom of the board. I don't have a pallet style board so I'll either run them of the top or sides.

They should be pretty easy to cut from what I've looked up.
