HX Stomp with Modeling Amp

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking a purchasing a Fender Rumble Stage 800 but as it is a modeling amp with lots of built-in effects, presets etc would this colour the output of my Helix Stomp too much or is there some kind of neutral preset on the Fender?

You'd be best placed bypassing the amp's pre by going to the return of the effects loop. Using just the power amp of the combo and your Stomp for the preamp. 

But, what's drawing you to that setup, if you already have the Stomp? There's little point paying extra for the Stage 800 when the Stomp offers lots of the same features. If you want a combo and to use the effects of the Stomp, the Rumble 500 would be better. 

I had that 800, it was really good. But now I use the Stomp direct to FOH, and use IEMs or an active speaker for fold back. Much lighter load, and I get a better representation through my FRFR of what's going to front of house. 

Much cheaper option if you already own a Stomp too!

I think you're right, the Rumble 500 would probably be better (and cheaper!), I need a flexible set up as I am in two bands where I use IEMs and FOH in one and the "trditional" set up in the other
