Saturday afternoon at Gearzilla Manor.
Helios is more open than those.What’s the ballpark tone of a Helios?
Played and Ecstasy and Uber but never a Helios.
Helios is more open than those.
Ballpark is 70’s and 80’s Marshall like depending on how it’s set.
Here’s some marketing speak:
“After countless requests Reinhold Bogner revisited his vast amount of detailed notes that go back in time from three decades of archiving, modifying and designing amplifiers. Through this treasure of documents lives the aural mojo of clients such as Eddie Van Halen, Steve Stevens, Jerry Cantrell, George Lynch, Michael Landau + others.
With this past knowledge HELIOS delivers Rock's deepest roots with 40 years of iconic and modified Marshall tones.”
That one is actually the Helios Eclipse. Essentially the next generation Helios which has some added gain stages available, and improved switching capability. The regular Helios is more Plexi to JCM.I just watched the Euge Valvorita demo of the Helios and dayum that amp sounds killer. Sorta the idealized vintage hot rodded Marshall tones. Fantastic.
