Regarding my previous post---here is a timeless message from one of the greatest voices in the history of music. Please give it a listen if you can. I'm so pleased to see the overwhelming outpouring of affection for Pat Torpey. Much Love and appreciation to all of you.
My dear friends, I'm sorry to be the bearer of such sad news. Pat Torpey has been my closest friend in music for over thirty years. He passed away yesterday from complications as a result of Parkinson's disease. Pat was one of the finest human beings I've ever had the privilege of knowing, and the honor of working with. All of us in Mr Big had nothing but the highest respect and admiration for him. He is loved by anyone and everyone who ever met him. And surely one of the finest rock drummers the world has ever known. Please keep his sweet wife and wonderful son in your prayers. I Love You, Pat. You made the world a better place. We will miss you. We will never forget you. Rest In Peace, my brother. Billy ... See MoreSee Less

Here's the "official" Line 6 video about the modeling of my original Pearce pre-amp. I used the Pearce on EVERYTHING ( all records and tours) from 1980 to just a few years ago. It gets beaten badly when traveling so I retired it. That actual unit is now modeled and is included in the Helix software. Glad to have it back!

Listen to Billy Sheehan tell this personal story of how he and the Line 6 sound design team modeled his favorite Pearce bass amp together, allowing him to rediscover the legendary sound that made him fall in love with playing bass guitar.
My Helix preset for the upcoming Sons of Apollo tour. Have the EBS in there---sounds very nice along w everything inside the Helix. Sound is super tight w this set-up. I'm using the low tuned neck of the double-neck mostly ( B E A D), and this is working really well w keeping those super low notes ultra tight w no overhang. ... See MoreSee Less
