Ooooh, my resistance to getting a Helix has finally just crumbled!!

Zoom B3N going back to off-board headphone duties (for when I need to keep the neighbours happy).

Not sure I'm going to be needing that larger PT board any more. Best go cancel that order that I'd just placed with Thomann, for it then...wait! A BC thread that's going to end up SAVING me money?! 

And the only proper concern for you @Dood is how you're gonna spend the surplus from your Helix HX savings, now you no longer need it? Your mini board with this, a set of Valetons and the recently become uber-good-value TC pedals, can finally become a reality! 😀

Can't wait for this Helix mini to arrive!

I think I'll use the surplus on a really small MIDI controller (like the tech 21) for fast access to different patches.

So I was actually researching that very subject (of midi controllers) yesterday and ended up putting in an order for the One Control Gecko Mk III which I think is actually as good / if not better than (and also a little cheaper than) the Tech 21 midi mouse.

£106 from DV247

Be very interested to get your thoughts and see if you agree?

Just cancelled my PT Classic 1 and Tour Case order.

If my B3n is going to be off-board and on headphone amp duty, I also no longer need a TC Spectradrive (so I'm glad its going to be a keeper for you this time Dave 😀)

Wow this pedal (and thread) should have already covered it's costs. When has that ever happened before to me on BC? 🤣

Surely that defeats the object of it being battery powered?

Any one got any ideas about what these are going to be selling for, or are we all very much in the dark right now?

🤑 🤑 🤑 £469 - ouch !!! Ok that has put a little bit of a dampener on the Krow party 

More feature packed than it's bigger sibling the Helix HX which is on at £399 at Andertons?

But they're already out then?!

According to the YouTube video I linked to above, the stomp has the amp and cab modelling that is missing from the HX. That's where your money will be going. Or not as maybe!

@Al Krow are you on the Andertons website now, breaking into a sweat, credit card in one hand, the other hovering over the confirm payment button? 😂

It also has dedicated aux in + headphone out which, together with the lack of cab sims were my two biggest gripes about the HX and the key reasons I didn't want to upgrade from my Zoom B3n.

And above all, I love the compact form factor.

Haha! Ok I'm completely sold - and yup, really, truly my resistance to getting a Helix has finally just crumbled!! Blood*y hell these 9 days of "not buying" any gear are proving expensive!!
