Product Description

The HD modeling in these PODs is an impressive feat, POD HD provides previously unachievable sensitivity for a more realistic interaction with the 16 built-in HD amp models. Add to that the 80 plus modern and vintage-styled M-class effects, onboard looper 128 user presets and a comprehensive digital and analog I/O.

Line 6 mixed 15 years of amp modeling experience with 3 years of research to push past the limits of their previous amp modeling technology. After accumulating 16 sought after amplifiers and restoring them to peak condition with the help of LA's top tube amp experts, Line 6's POD HD Pedalboards use 10-times more amplifier information than before, including single-ended class A tube stages, class AB push/pull interactions, power supply behavior, and more. The result is unprecedented, warmth, feel, sustain, and articulation to provide you with all the amp tones you've been searching for.

This video from Line 6 gives a great overview of the intuitive HD300:


Free v2.0 Firmware Update for POD HD300 and POD HD400

The free v2.0 firmware update dramatically expands the sonic palettes of POD(R) HD300 and POD HD400 multi-effects processors. Featuring seven additional HD guitar amps, a new HD bass amp with matching cab and eight mic choices, two new effects and more, the latest update is the perfect way to power up your POD HD.

Seven New HD Guitar Amps

To thank the POD HD300 and POD HD400 users who have been waiting so patiently for this update, you'll be the first to experience five brand-new HD guitar amps. Three of them are based on* the distinctive clean, crunch and overdrive tones of the beastly Soldano(R) SLO100 amp, a new benchmark of modern high-gain tone. The other two--Line 6 Doom and Line 6 Epic -- are fire-breathing, high-gain originals designed to scorch anything in their paths.

The update also delivers two amps based on the Normal and Bright inputs of the legendary Marshall "Plexi" 1959 Super Lead 100-watt amp. They provide the classic cascading crunch of this historic English head.

HD Bass Amp with Eight Mic Choices

Get essential thump based on* the immortal Ampeg B-15NF Portaflex, one of the most popular studio bass amps of all time. The modeled cab is based on the original 15-inch speaker. Dial in your ideal bass tone with eight new mic choices based on* Shure(R) SM57, Sennheiser 421, AKG D12, AKG D112, EV RE20, Shure SM7B, Heil Sound PR40 and Neumann U47.

Vintage Mic Preamp and Hard Gate Effects

Based on the Requisite Y7 tube mic preamp, the "Vintage" HD preamp adds incredible warmth to guitar and bass tones. Its controls include Gain, HPF (High Pass Filter), LPF (Low Pass Filter), Phase and Output.

"Hard Gate" is an advanced gate capable of extremely quick response. With controls for hold time, decay rate and separate open/close thresholds, Hard Gate is ideal for any genre including metal. It can even be used to create erratic "sputter" and "splat" effects.

Cab Bypass
V2.0 firmware gives you the ability to bypass the cab model for any amp. Download the free v2.0 firmware now to add even more sonic power to your POD HD300 or POD HD400!

80+ M-class FX

Made famous by Line 6 M13 and M9 Stompbox Modelers, M-class FX have become stage-standards in serious player's rigs. POD HD300 features a whopping 80+ M-class effects to craft your sound. With this wide tonal palette to play with, you can sound like anyone under the sun... or no one but you. Use up to 4 FX at once.

30+ distortions from classic stompbox distortion to thick metal chunk with pitch FX
Also, EQs from stomp comps and studio tube compression

30+ analog and digital delays including cool tube and solid-state tape echoes
Also includes wahs and reverbs from surfy spring to studio plate and digital rooms

20+ swirly phasers and filters including several exclusive custom filters
with other mods including choruses, and rotary speakers

Also, blackface-style opto and brownface bias-modulating tremolos

The power of this collection is truly mind-boggling. In addition to these classic sounds themselves, POD HD300 functions as a fully featured looping, pitch shifting, and harmonizing machine. Ready to start creating? This rig could keep you going for a lifetime.

Unprecedented Flexibility with Stunning Simplicity

Beyond the mere depth of the amp and FX models, POD HD300 offers flexibility to mix and match amps and pedals in multiple pre-set rigs, attainable at the stomp of a switch.

And where other manufacturers seem to require a degree in nuclear physics to access this kind of deep programmability, Line 6 has made it easy. Smart FX make it a snap to quickly dial in your tone, and the free, easy to use editor/librarian software supports your deepest, darkest tonal explorations. POD HD300 was designed by guitarists for guitarists.

Comprehensive Connectivity for Live and Studio Use

Put simply, POD HD300 connects to just about anything and everything - analog or digital, balanced or unbalanced, for amplification or recording.

A snapshot of the back panel shows 1/4 inch and XLR outputs (mono/stereo), USB, MP3/CD input, L6 LINK jack for seamless integration with Line 6 DT50 tube amplifiers, and more.

Built Like a Tank

POD HD300's cutting-edge technology is kept safe within a bulletproof bent sheet metal housing with heavy-duty metal footswitches and expression pedal. No injection-molded plastic boxes here--POD HD300 is ready to lap up years of road and stage abuse and keep you playing.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (23 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Everything I could have asked for with bonuses."
Sound: I mostly play clean, and the clean sounds I can achieve from the HD 300 are very well done. I once owned a silver faced twin that I was quite fond of, however it was very heavy and very loud. With the HD 300 I can dial up sounds that I remember from that amp. Feature: I Love the vast array of effects, paired with ten different amp models, that I can direct record to my PC. This will help no doubt help my skill grow and open opportunities for me to play with other musicians. And when I get that chance, I will be well equipped to dial up whatever sound the situation calls for. Ease of Use: It does take a fair amount of tweaking to get a custom sound, however there are lots of tones on customtone.com if you are looking to copy the sound of other guitarists. Quality: I only use the HD 300 at home (for now, but it does not matter. This thing is made very well and I can see it making it out of my house without any trouble at all. Value: The POD HD 300 seems a bit overkill for my play-style. Everyone is different in this though. It does seem to lean more towards rock and blues players. It would be nice to see more direct attention payed to country, bluegrass and gospel music. I guess to be fair though, compared to other items of this nature, the price was spot on. Manufacturer Support: Have not had to deal directly with tech support as of yet. The Line 6 website is a great tool and offers everything you need to get your POD plugged into your PC or whatever else you wish. The Wow Factor: It is very pleasing to the eye.
Style of Music: Gospel, Christian, Country, Blues.

"Best value in floor processors."
Sound: I've played it now through a Roland KC550 keyboard amp, my guitar tube amp, a rehearsal sized PA and at a club direct to the PA. Amp models are great, from Fender cleans to Engl thunder. Effects are so good that I'm selling everything on my pedal board, then maybe even my guitar amp (keyboard amp and my Pocket Pod would be the backup). Feature: Most everything you need on this model, but the 300 limits which effects can be used at the same time, doesn't let you pick the order in your chain, run two rigs at the same time, or use with a Variax guitar. None of these bothered me and I like the smaller size. I do wish I had more switches to have 5 or 6 patches easily available at once like the others. Ease of Use: Edits are easy and pretty intuitive on both the editing software and the unit. Quality: Looks and feels sturdier than the old plastic pods. Value: Seems reasonable for all they pack in there. Much cheaper than a dozen iconic amps and a bazillion effects and will save my aging back too. Manufacturer Support: No experience yet. Bought the extended warrantee though and I usually don't. This type of thing could easily have something fall or spill on it. The Wow Factor: Looks more professional than the last generation of Line 6 or Digitech floor units. Overall: I would replace this in a heartbeat.
