When Line 6 debuted the original Helix in 2016, we were suitably impressed by the sounds, build and functionality of the effects giant’s new flagship floorboard – the only downside, really, was the price that all this technology would set you back.

The new LT solves that problem – with some sensible stripping back of some of the full-fat Helix’s bells and whistles, you get all the excellent tones and convenience of its big brother for a substantial chunk less.

We said “A clever and newly affordable all-in-one recording solution that might also end up replacing your gigging pedalboard”.

Highly Commended


Keeley Dark Side

• Price £301
Reviewed April 2017

We said “A great-value package of Gilmour-style effects in a small footprint that allows you to innovate as well as emulate”.


JHS Pedals VCR Ryan Adams
