I've heard they take a bit of tweaking, but you can get some usable tones that sit better in the mix than alone. Meshuggah and Tosin used to use XT/X3 Pros, and they obviously got a decent sound out of them. I'm pretty sure an acquaintance of mine uses one too for home recordings. If you wanted to ask him, this is his Youtube channel.

Opinions on this please guys?

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=120704910809&category=22669&_trksid=p5197.c0.m619#ht_500wt_1156

it seems to be exactly what I am after, small, cheap and incredibly portable...

but is it any good?


Great high gain tones, so so low and mid gain, OK effects, but not as lush as say Digitech's GSP or Boss's GT Pro.
Worth the 200 clams IMO.

thanks lad,

I was thinking if I got it for around £280 its worth it, but I wouldnt go over that I think...

anybody else?

I suggest you save up another 20 clams and get this

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Line-6-Pod-HD500-Effects-pedal-board-/300542433877?pt=UK_Guitar_Accessories&hash=item45f9b99a55

Models are much better than the old POD series, so are effects.

or this

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Pod-Hd-300-/280653961358?pt=UK_Guitar_Accessories&hash=item415847988e

amp models use the same coding, you just sacrifice a bit of control (ie fewer switches and no looper AFAIK)

True, but the price will be closer to 400 by the time that ends mate.

that vid sounds awesome.

Is the 300 really any good though? I know he uses a lot of post production on his stuff so I am always hesitant to use his stuff as a fair representation.

I know the 500 is a beast, but are the models exactly the same?

Yep. Exact same models.
The differences are in stuff like effects chains and switches.
For modelling alone, the 300 is more than enough. If youre gonna go psychedelic effects, then the 400 or 500 would be needed. For basic stuff, like delay reverb chorus etc, the 300 is a beast. 500 is a wee bit excessive.
EDIT: Its essentially an M9 with added amp models, if that makes sense, and the 500 is an M13 plus models.

EDIT: The 300 has 80 effects, the 500 has I think 120. Do you really need that lot? honestly speaking?

yeah...


if i was planning on just using it for dirt, maybe some clean tones, it would be ideal...


hmmmm, have you used it yourself?

Naa. Just youtube vids.
However, I have used the older POD. The X3. Friend has one of those. Lucky bitch runs it through a Fender Twin reissue
EDIT: And just about every local band out here either uses a Boss GT/POD/Tonelab through the PA.
Holy Katana has one, I think. You could send a PM.

Purely going to use headphones and a PA out.

Then in a year or so maybe move up to an AxeFx or another ENGL.

I want an Axe FX The sad thing is I could buy one right now although it would leave me completely broke I would need a real nice poweramp on top of that as well. I guess I'll have to wait a few more months..

I went into a debt of nearly $500 to buy my Axe-FX. Still have another $60 to pay back. Definitely worth it though

What do you run your Axe through?
I cant see a poweramp in your sig.....
It's just a Carvin DCM150. Got it pretty cheap, and I'll probably keep it until I can get a VHT tube or something.

It's SS right?
How does the Axe handle it? And cabs?
It's alright, I don't know how it handles high volume situations because I haven't cranked it yet (I live in a duplex with no shed or garage), but the Axe sounds great through it and my Soldano 4x12. Or at least, at low volumes it does. Far as I can tell though it's pretty decent for the price I paid, $150 for the Carvin + a 4-space rack.

Dont bother with companies like that. Just arrange it with sellers personally, thats what I do.

thats tasty....

when I buy stuff from abroad I just contact the sellers and see if they are willing to ship it to me.

I've heard it off a computer forum, never tried them myself.
They'd better be. My next amp purchase depends on them.
Try googling it.

EDIT: Use bongo US.

Dammit, I wish I knew about this when I bought my Agile! I paid $240 for shipping!

Are they reliable?


Did a bit of research.
Ignore Shipito. They seem to be bottom rung, if my earlier edit makes sense.

Bongo seems to be the most popular one.
Test them out with a cheapish purchase.
Im interested in this as well.

I'd kill to get one of these.

has anyone tried out the HD300-500 and the Eleven Rack?

Im just dieing for one but I cant decide because I havent heard them side by side. The first thing I want is tone but the HDs would have a footswitch built in, you know. Although the Eleven Rack comes with Pro Tools LE.

Any opinions on their tones (300-500 or 11r)?

Purely on tone, the 11 kills the POD.
But versatility, practicality and price wise, the HD300 is great. the 500 is just the 300 with mroe features.
#117
11 rack is awesome, I am sure Fred the Shred will be able to tell you about them if you PM him. I think he uses them over AxeFx.

I finally got to try an Axe FX. Is not better than the HDs. Well it does some stuff better, but overall its not better. It just has more sounds, but quality wise, the good sounds in the HD are really up there. I still feel some of the touch in my amps though, and don't know what it is, cause the sound is certainly all there.

I see someone mentioned the eleven kills the pod. If thats true then the eleven is better than the Axe FX, because the HD sounds as good in my opinion
#119
does anyone know about the POD HD300?

can i place 2 amps in th signal chain like on the Axe-Fx?

would it be fine if you dont go crazy on effects and mainly use basic setups?

can i run it thorugh the poweramp section of my 6534+ to amplify it? i realize though that if i can id have colouration from the EL34s

it would deffinitly save me money and be something i can obtain quicker. ehat do you think?

im thinking the Axe is over kill for now, the POD HD500 seems like its alot more effects and a looper i prolly wouldnt use.
#120
if you just want effects look for a 2nd hand TC Electronic G major.

you cant run 2 amps at the same time or setup wild effects chains.
