Product Description

Tough enough for arena stages yet small enough to fit in your backpack, the Line 6 FBV Express MkII delivers a crucial collection of hands-free functionality that will keep you at the foot of the stage instead of tied to the front of your Line 6 amp or POD.

Four on the Floor

FBV Express MkII delivers out-of-the box, plug-n-play connectivity. Stomp the four steel footswitches to quickly store and select channel presets, synchronize your time-based effects with Tap Tempo, activate the chromatic tuner, and more.

When paired with Spider(r) IV guitar amplifiers, the FBV Express MkII can activate many on-board amp effects including Quick Loop, Pitch Glide and Smart Harmony.

The burly, full-sized volume/wah pedal feels solid under your foot and features plenty of grip. Clicking the toe-switch toggles between volume and wah control (with an illuminated LED to match).

The FBV Express MkII's bright and easy-to-read LCD shows tap tempo, active channel and the chromatic tuner (when activated).

Features

- Hands-free channel switching and more for most Line 6 amps and POD processors
- 4 channel switches: A, B, C and D
- Full-sized volume/wah pedal features plenty of grip
- Chromatic tuner display
- Bright LEDs show active channel, tap tempo and volume/wah
- FBV Control software allows for easy and unlimited mapping of FBV controls via USB (Mac/PC)
- Durable footswitches and chassis
- Self-powered via included locking RJ-45 cable
- USB jack and RJ-45 jack

FBV Control Software

Take full advantage of the Line 6 FBV Express MkII with the free and downloadable FBV Control software. The application shows you a graphical representation of your FBV Express MkII and lets you fully customize the footswitch and pedal functions.

Assign the footswitches and pedal to perform MIDI CCs, bank changes, program changes and even transport commands to drive many popular audio applications including ProTools(r), Propellerhead Reason(r) and Record, and more!

Create and save endless variations - a few for gigs, a few for the studio - and easily add them to your FBV Express MkII via USB.

"Line 6 FBV Express MkII Foot Controller Don't Think Just Buy It"
Sound: I use the FBV for home recording i use it with a line6 UX2. You will need to have POD FARM to use FBV unless you have a line6 amp. It works very well with all the Wahs and volume pedals. The only preset it doesn't work with is the pitch shift (maybe i need to check line6 for FVB updates). The tones are legendary and the FVB pedal rocks back and forward very smoothly. It has a built in tuner and four foot switches for saving your favorite presets. It is very well made and it certainly feels like value for the money. Personally i am very pleased with the FVB. Feature: It comes with cables. Useful features (see above). Ease of Use: I found it quiet easy to install using line6 monkey. If you are problems check out line6 on youtube .Easy to get good sounds because it is a quality product. Quality: Very well constructed and very solid. Value: For me it is definitely worth the money, so many different wahs and only one pedal Manufacturer Support: I did need to contact line6 and i found the site a little confusing. However they replied and they were extremely friendly and very helpful.The site needs to be a bit more user friendly. The Wow Factor: I can not fault it.... yes it's good Overall: I will keep this product for as long as it last and then replace it with another one. I have not seen anything that does what the FVB does. There is nothing i dislike about it.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Small, inexpensive, flexible and effective."
Sound: Not applicable. Feature: Although I own several Line 6 amps, I'm rating the product for its other application, which is to send MIDI to a computer over USB. There are very few alternatives in the way of bus-powered USB pedals that send MIDI to a virtual port. (I've been waiting for years for one, actually.) The good news is that this one works. It's also small and light (while still feeling solid and stable once it's placed) and very inexpensive. If you're running a PC in your live set up, this is just ideal. It can be easily programmed to send Program Change, CC, MIDI Machine Control, Mackie Control... pretty much anything on any channel, etc. The software to configure this is straightforward and works really well. Especially nice for guitarists who are accustomed to a switch at the toe-end of the expression pedal to toggle wah, etc. It's all there and works easily. The only downside is that the pedal isn't expandable at all. It would have been nice, since all the brains are in place, if Line 6 had added a couple of 1/4" jacks for additional switches and or an additional expression pedal, though of course this would have brought the price up a bit. And I'm not sure about reliabilty. As I said the pedal is light-weight, and it won't surprise me if I *eventually* stomp it to death, but at this price I'm sure I will have gotten my money's worth first. (I just hope this product is popular enough that I can find a replacement when the time comes!) Ease of Use: Plugged it in. Downloaded the software. The software was totally intuitive and everything worked perfectly. (This is *not* commonplace with MIDI controllers...) Quality: I really like the feel of the switches, the economy of scale, the choice of features, etc. It's a cool product IMO, and more or less unique. Other players might find the lightweight construction and materials to be a bit "flimsy". Value: $99 bucks for the MIDI controller *and* the MIDI interface, and if you use a Line 6 amp it doubles as your onstage tuner. Size makes it suitable for small gigs and small rigs. It's a good solution for very reasonable money. Manufacturer Support: Line 6 is a big company now, but they've been good to work with in my experience, and their website is pretty comprehensive, so high marks. I haven't had to contact them about this product, and that's a good thing. The Wow Factor: Well, it's sexy to me, but I'm a total geek. :) It made my PC/Ableton/Guitar Rig set up nice and portable. I'm probably the only person on earth who equates that with "sex appeal" LOL. Overall: There is no other single product (that I'm aware of) that would replace this, and yes, it's a big help for me in realizing my musical goals. So, 10 overall.
