Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (35 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "This thing is a great value, It is a really useful addition to my collection of musical instruments and compliments every instru"
Sound: This is a pretty cool product. I use it every time I want to record...the usb makes for a crisp clean recording of whatever instrument I hook into. This pod is a bit intimidating at first, and I still have not tried to tweak any of the settings via the face of the unit, but if you get Gearbox, the free app. that Line6 allows you to d-load, it is absolutely a joy to operate....there are a lot of plug-ins as well that are free to d-load. It is an indispensable unit for anyone who enjoys recording music. Feature: I am glad it has a lot of different inputs. I usually use the USB. Ease of Use: Works best with the Gearbox application. Although the learning curve is slight, the Gearbox eases use immensely. Quality: The only problem is the paint for the input button seemed to rub off the first month I had it...not completely, but enough to annoy. No operational affect, though. Manufacturer Support: I have never had to call them. The Wow Factor: I wish it was shaped a bit more practically. Maybe with some retractable and adjustable feet, so you can see it on a desktop........and include the gig bag in the price. Overall: If I lost it, I would be very unhappy and would either replace or upgrade. Replacement would make me as happy as an upgrade.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Line 6 POD X3"
Overall: I hate digital modeling! I have analog pedals and find them to be the most organic tone going. That being said, the line 6 POD x3 is an amazing digital modeler. Somehow the tone gurus at Line 6 have managed to pack true amp like tone and touch sensitivity into the POD creating an extremely lifelike amp-through-guitar sound. The ability to run through amps as varied as the Matchless Chieftan to the Fender Vibrolux is truly a wonder of the digital age. Of course the Marshall modeling is the true belly of the beast here, the Vox and Fender tones sound incredibly accurate. Additionally, the effects are second to none in the digital modeling market. The Tube Screamer is spot on. The delays are the most analog sounding digital delays I have ever heard. I easily programmed my own tones and am having fun tweaking the presets Line 6 has pre-programmed (which sound amazing, by the way). I am considering ditching my pedals in favor of the Line 6 POD X3. Not all the amp tones can sound like exact recreations, but Line 6 is the closest to achieving digital to analog modeling of all manufacturers. Should come with a footswitch.
