LA Studio Comp (Teletronix® LA-2A®)

LA Studio Comp, the Helix model of a Teletronix® LA-2A®

For over 50 years the Teletronix LA-2A has been revered for its smooth, natural, musical compression. WIth its unique tube-driven electro-optical attenuator system that allows instantaneous gain reduction with no increase in harmonic distortion, the LA-2A massages signals like no other compressor ever made.

Slash Mod 2204

Most of the Slash patches I get all sound thin and frankly a little weird. He has a very straightforward tone. I tried to capture the spirit of his tone here. It's a bit fuzzy but I think it works well in a mix or for some headphone soloing. Sorry for the horrible soloing in my SoundCloud demo. My 6 year old thinks I sound great....

Killer Cleans

I just got my strat upgraded with Duncan SSL-1 pickups, and this patch is just amazing for it. Beautiful cleans and some optional Tube Screamer and Tape Echo to get you going.

Green Day Dookie Tone

This stereo tone replicates Billie Joe's tone on Green Day's Dookie album pretty well. There's a compressor and boost available for a little extra oomph, but they're off by default because they're not really needed to get the album tone. I used a Les Paul to record the Soundcloud demo, you may want to try a Strat or P90 guitar for a little extra high end.

Slayer - Angel of Death

You know what this is. I used the Badonk amp model to give the sound the necessary mids and chunk.

My Dumble

My attempt at recreating a Dumble sound with Helix.  Uses dual cabs for extra grind. Footswitch on Kinky Boost and Stereo Delay (Dual Delay).

Rockerverb

New for Helix 3.1, the Rockerveb is a very cool and versatile amp for rock n roll. Try this tone in place of a Marshall for a crunchier, fatter tone.

Mike Ness Tone

This is the HX Stomp version of this tone - there's also a version for the Helix available here by selecting the Helix as your device. This is a very good approximation of Mike Ness's Tone on the Social Distortion albums. The recipe is iconic - a dirt pedal into a Bassman head, then into Marshall cabinets. The sample clip was played on a legit Les Paul with P90 pickups - you need this to get the real deal.
