Vicky Blues

This is a Pod Go patch that is based off a popular blues patch I have for the Helix. It's great for high-flying electric blues.

Guitar and Mic

This is a cool patch for singers/songwriters. 1. Plug your guitar into the regular L/Mono input2. Plug your mic into the L/Mono Aux-in input (on the right hand side of the HX Stomp) - this adapter will allow you to easily hook a standard XLR mic to the HX Stomp or Helix.There you go - adjust the amp to taste.

El Hefe - NOFX

I tried to capture the tone from the classic Punk in Drublic album.El Hefe is always pictured with his trusty Telecaster, but I read in an interview that he likes to record with a Les Paul, so that's what I used when creating the patch. Also, Hefe is a Mesa Mark amp user, but I thought the Revv amp sounds really good here.Why is the cab on a footswitch? Because I also play through a powercab, and this makes it easy to set it up.

Tele Boogie

I really like the Mesa Lone Star amps, but I didn't really care for the stock Helix patches featuring the amp. This tone has 3 snapshots, clean, overdriven and dirty. I used my trusty Telecaster to create the patch and Soundcloud sample below.I'm re-discovering the Double Take model on Helix, which is great for headphones, it gives the sound better space and ambience. If you're going to an amp or recording, you may want to turn this effect off.The input gate is set high because my Tele is a bit noisy. If you have humbuckers or noiseless pickups, set it to taste.
