Mark V with a Line 6 Helix

Post by Rick_Sanchez » Tue Jun 25, 2019 7:55 pm

Anybody out there running their Mark V 4CM with a Line 6 Helix? I've just picked up a Helix and the thing is awesome. Be keen to see how you are setting yours up.

I'm going 4CM with some Tube Screamer in front and them some tasty modulation and delay after the amp. It's a great setup. I do have to do some level tweaking as when you plug the Helix in it somehow boosts the volume of the Mark V a heap.

Show me your rigs/presets!

I run a Helix with a Mark V 35 combo.
The largest knob on the Helix is an output volume adjustment.
It has no affect on the tones coming out of the unit.
It is not like a tube amp that gets dirtier as you crank it.
Use that knob to adjust the output to unity.
