Steve Vai-Helix Artist Tone


Line 6 Helix guitar tone for emulating Steve Vai‘s epic W/D/W live tone.


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.
