OVERVIEW

Handsfree channel switching and more for your Line 6 amp and POD.

Line 6's FBV Express MKII Guitar Footswitch offers all the classic advantages you expect from a Line 6 foot controller, including rock-solid channel switches, a rugged wah/volume pedal and a chromatic tuner display but it's also full of surprises. The steel footswitches are built for constant stomping. They make it easy to store and select four channel presets, to synchronize time-based effects with Tap Tempo, and to activate the chromatic tuner. 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.

FBV Express MKII footswitch connects to your Line 6 amp or POD effect processor via the included locking RJ-45 cable. Perfectly paired with Spider IV and Spider Valve MKII guitar amplifiers, the FBV footswitch provides complete, handsfree control of the looper, pitch-shifter and other on-board amplifier effects.

FEATURES
  • Hands-free channel switching and more for your Line 6 amp and POD
  • Footswitches and chassis are constructed of reliable steel
  • 4 channel switches: A, B, C and D
  • Chromatic tuner display
  • Volume/wah pedal is burly, full-sized and features plenty of grip
  • Bright LEDs show active channel, tap tempo and volume or wah
  • Self-powered via included locking RJ-45 cable

I will start by saying over the past few years I have been really starting to become a fan boy of Line 6 products. I purchased a 75 watt Jam and the things that amp can do is utterly amazing! Recently I wanted to be able to easily create loops and dubs with my Spider jam so I purchased the Express. It is durable, heavy, and works well. The small screen reads easily to let you know what tone bank you are in. But if you are wanting to expand for looping and dubs I highly recommend the shortboard. The express does allow you to use the looping functions on the jam but you have to switch the mode on the amp for this to happen. That in turn takes away the ability to bank through differnet effects. So if you really want to do both get the shortboard or if you have the budget get the shortboard. That being said this footswitch does everything it claims it can do very well!

Does not work with Pod 2.0

Could not gauge it since it did not power up at all when connected to my pod 2.0. As a matter if fact it locked my pod into manual mode

        Works out of the box with pod XT. provides foot switching capability within the group selected. you still need to manually select the group. once you pick your four favorite patches and place them into the same group you can access all four of those sounds instantly. You can access the tuner and set the tempo of your modulation effects via the foot switches. you can also place your pod XT into manual mode by holding down a footswitch that is not selected.

        I loved the convenience, versatility, and sound quality of the Pod HD Desktop and with the FBV Express MKII Guitar Footswitch, it is perfect. Interfaced with my notebook makes it easy to recall and create tones. I can then easily program the pedal. More important is the sound quality of the whole system. It is superb!

                  Comments about Line 6 FBV Express MKII Guitar Footswitch:

                  I've owned this footswitch pedal for a couple of weeks now and I got to say, if you own a line 6 spider 4 amp its just the perfect match, I personaly love playing standing up and on stage but before I owned this I had to press the a, b, c, or d buttons on my amp to able to switch to a different pre-set,and there was times were I had to lean over and press the button and sometimes it would mess up the song during rehearsel and when I got this I diffenetly felt much more comfortable knowing that I can controll my Line 6 with my foot, but I still think its weird how the manufacture wouldnt include one of these footswitches with the amp even if it didnt have the wah/volume effect on it. plus, the wah pedal is a pretty ok pedal itself, it doesnt sound better than my other wah pedal's that I use on stage but if you are new to the "wah world" its great. And the footswitch its self isnt even difficlut to setup all you do when you get it is take it out of the box plug it in and its fully functional.

                    Just recently purchased this for my line 6 spider iv half stack. Makes a world of difference. I love so many different presets on my amp i really needed that to fuction alot of my differwnt distortions i use from, slipknot, killswitch, and so on. Plus to add a wah to the set well worth the money. As well opens a whole lot more with the programs u can use to tweak ur sounds to the parameters of the wah. Simple way to put it, if u have a spider iv series this is a must have.
