Hey everyone. I used to have an Eclipse, and I should have never sold it. My gripe was too much gain and noise, I usually played with gain backed way off, which worked, but I let it go.
Now I have a chance to get a regular Helios 50. I don’t need clean to mean switchable, so I am ok with using the hot input for crunch/rhythm and then lead. My questions are-

How much gain is available in the hot 80s mode?

Tonally, do the eclipse and the Regular Helios sound about the same? Chewy, fat, easy feeling, super big midrange, nonfizz6, etc...

How do I control the gain of ‘channel 1’?

How does the 50 ‘feel’ compared to the 100? I like a softer feel, not too tight or fast. The Eclipse felt amazing!
