The NUX MG30 is cool, but how does it compare to the Line6 HX Stomp?

    Hey guys!

    I had a loaner hx stomp that blew me away and I sold all my pedals to buy one.

    Along the way, I came across this new NUX MG30, it sounded cool, it looked cool and it was way more affordable than the Stomp.

    I pulled the trigger, got one to shoot it out against the stomp and this video came to be.

    Let me know what you think, I appreciate that!

    You still seem to have the only independent review of the MG-30 on YouTube. Thanks in part to your input, I pre-ordered one yesterday.

    Good video, enjoy your playing. I sold my Helix LT and went back to a tube amp. I miss the Helix at times and may pickup the NUX to scratch that itch. Love the portability of a small modeler.

    Interesting. I am a big Helix Lover. I use one every week for church services. I have a Floor, and last year bought a Pod Go.

    Anyone who can't get professional tone out of one of these units hasn't spent time on the editor shaping their tones.

    That being said, there is certainly room for improvement. There are settings that still produce 'digital chirp' and other digital artifacts. The features are constantly being improved upon and each update is better than the last.

    That means that they will continue to improve, and better units are out already (the quad core from Neural seems pretty badass) and I believe the next generation 'Dual Helix' already preparing to ramp up production.

    As technology improves, these things will only get better, rendering the stuff we own essentially obsolete.

    Just checked in to my Zzounds account. Arrival day changed from 4/23 to:

    On Order- This item has been ordered from the manufacturer. We do not have an expected date for this shipment yet, but will post one as soon as it is available.
    :(
    They seem to be having a hard time getting through US Customs for some reason.

    Like waiting for Christmas, but Santa keeps pushing the date back...

    Not til JULY 2021.jpg

    Well, I think I'll withdraw my preorder... I'll revisit the thought of getting the MG-30 in July, maybe. What a darn shame that the shipments can't keep up with the hype machine.
