Line 6 has just unveiled their newest addition to the Helix family: the HX Stomp! This super compact and easy-to-use guitar modeler is an entire Helix (yeah, that’s right), packed into a conveniently-sized stompbox for the traveling musician. I swear, these rigs just keep getting smaller and smaller. What’s next,
About the HX Stomp, here’s what Line 6 had to say:
“HX Stomp™ is a professional-grade guitar processor that delivers the sound of Helix® amps, cabs, and effects in an ultra-compact pedal. Whereas the Line 6™ HX EffectsTM pedal is designed to be the centerpiece of a pedalboard, providing full control over individual effects, amp switching, and external MIDI-equipped pedals—HX Stomp is a programmable amp/cab/effects/IR pedal that seamlessly integrates into a variety of environments and applications. Use it as a “super stompbox,” a backup or fly rig, an add-on tone expander when combined with other modelers, an audio interface—or even a complete guitar or bass rig.”
On top of all that, the HX Stomp comes loaded with 300+ amp, cabs, and effects from the Helix, M-Series, and legacy Line 6 products. It can handle up to 6 simultaneous amp, cab, and effect blocks (including a looper/IR loading), and boasts 3 capacitive-sensing footswitches with color-coded LED rings, just like its bigger brother.
