I picked this up as a bass player, looking to make the tap dancing on my pedal board a bit easier. What I got was an awesome sounding piece of equipment that make my time better than it ever has been. It's incredibly easy to use, so much so that you don't really even need a manual for most things. The ability to split my tone to run a dry bass line and a dirty bass line is so much easier to do than with analog pedals. Also, way less to carry to gigs. I just have my head, my cab, my bass, and the line 6. A power cable for the head, a power cable for the helix, plug helix into head, plug bass into helix, and your done.
