Cherub Rock-Smashing Pumpkins Artist Tone


Line 6 Helix guitar tone for emulating the song Cherub Rock by the band Smashing Pumpkins from their album Siamese Dream.


Artist Tones are meticulously crafted to emulate the 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.
