Product Description

Supercharge your pedal board with a single stompbox! M5 Stompbox Modeler delivers over 100 gain-defying distortions, lush choruses, scintillating reverbs and many other expressive effects from DL4 Delay Modeler, Verbzilla and other well-known Line 6 pedals.

Like other single-pedal-size stompboxes, M5 Stompbox Modeler provides one effect at a time, it's easy to use and it conserves valuable pedal board real estate. But M5 goes much, much further -- it provides an arsenal of modern and classic effects, lets you save up to 24 effect presets and more.

See the M5 in action with this demo video from Line 6:


Save up to 24 effect presets -- fast access to your favorite tones

From the classic and timeless to the bold and esoteric, M5 has all the sounds you need and then some. Once you find your favorites, you can customize them to your liking and save up to 24 as presets. Your instant stockpile is ready to rock through your next set list -- switch up your sound with a simple stomp.

Expression pedal control

Add an optional expression pedal to open up a world of sonic possibilities. This goes way beyond just accessing the collection of wah and pitch effects. Get real-time adjustment of delay time, mod speed, reverb tails, wet/dry mix and more -- simultaneously adjust up to five parameters per effect! M5 lets you keep it simple or micro-sculpt your sounds to your liking -- the choice is yours.

Secret weapon

M5 costs less than one good, single effect pedal, features an easy-to-read screen and is infinitely customizable. Dedicate one space on your pedal board to be whatever effect you need in the moment. The invaluable built-in tuner keeps you sounding your best.

4.5 out of 5 (8 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
"Swapped out my pedal tuner for a slew of great FX."
Sound: I incorporated the M5 into my pedalboard that includes many boutiquey pedals. Removed my tuner, cleared a little more space arround it, now I have a tuner that doubles as virtually any effect I want. It usually is my Leslie simulator, but it's great to have a single pedal that when recording or just coming up with sounds can be just about any effect. Echoplex with tap tempo, seek wah, ring modulator, tremolo with tap tempo, univibe, tube driver, dynacomp compressor, spring reverb, you name it it's in there. Feature: I give it a 9 only because it does not run off of one output of my pedalpower 2. I have ordered the jumper cable to combine 2 of the pedal power's outputs to produce the necesary voltage to power the M5. Until then I have powered it with the included adapter plugged into standard ac jack on the pedal power. Ease of Use: Chose a model and the knobs allow you to edit it like a familiar analog pedal. No paging through screens. Quality: Solid metal construction. Value: It was worth it for me. I can't think of another product that delivers this quality and quantity of FX at such a reasonable price. The Wow Factor: It looks OK. A bit utilitarian, could be more hip/retro. Overall: It's versatile enough to keep me happy for a while, but I'm always buying more pedals!

Sound: This pedal sounds great! The presets are a little generic... but the magic is definitely there to be found. Each effect has a great range of tones, and it's not hard to tweak and massage them to your liking. The distortions and fuzzes are absolutely great. They are very reactive. The delays and reverbs are top-tier. I've heard some pedals that were a bit warmer, but not at this price, and they were single effect boxes. I use this in the effects loop of my Line 6 X3 in my bass rig. It has some effects that work better for bass than others (the deeper chorus settings are a little over the top for bass), but they all work well and sound good. Feature: It came with a power supply... but it works just fine with my Boss power supply, even with 2 other pedals on the same powersupply. It has a pretty good tuner built in, so if you are at a point on your pedalboard where you only have room for one pedal, this will still do it, because it can replace your tuner! 100 effects with a tuner. Who couldn't find room for that? Ease of Use: There is a slight learning curve with this pedal. It's definitely easier than any other processor I've played with, but it does take a little thought to get comfy with it. Once it's set up and tweaked out, though.... it's absolutely stomp-box easy. Quality: Very well made. I only gave it a nine because I don't want to sound like a Line 6 fanboi. Overall: I believe this pedal has scratched my gear itch, and will keep it at bay for a long time. It does exactly what I wanted it to, and surprised me with some very cool effects I thought I'd never use. IF I lost this, I would absolutely have to replace it... if I didn't replace it with another M5, I'd replace it with it's bigger brother, the M9. But, this fits the bill for relatively compact and versatile... so I'd be compelled to stick with it.
