Basket Case-Green Day Authentic Artist Tone


Line 6 Helix guitar tone for the Green Day song Basket Case.


Artist Tones are meticulously crafted to accurately replicate the exact tone from the original artist. Check the video before you buy to remove any doubt of the accuracy. Of course every guitar, speaker, and player are different so expect some variation on your own setup.

Patch features:

  • Authentic Artist Tone by Ben R Vesco
  • Get tone similar to Green Day as heard on their song Basket Case from the album Dookie
  • Sounds like Billie Joe Armstrong playing through a cranked Marshall
  • Features two presets, one based on the internal stock cabs and another based on custom IRs created specifically for this preset
  • Includes six custom IRs with different flavors of 4×12 cabs that can be mixed and matched in these presets or used with other presets
  • Four snapshots:
    1. Panned is great for intros where one guitar comes from the side before the whole band kicks in
    2. Core Tone is the raw cranked Marshall rhythm sound
    3. Solos kicks up the gain and volume a notch for focused leads that can cut through the mix
    4. Full Stereo adds a wider spread to fill up your space
