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.

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!

You would think a pedal for any line6 product would cycle thru the presets. For the money, it should at least do that. The wah is very good and so is the tuner. If your just looking to switch channels, buy the FBV 2. The extra money you save can be put towards something else you can use.

Comments about Line 6 FBV Express MKII Guitar Footswitch:

I actually do not own this, but I have used it before. I was planning on buying this, but my uncle bought me a Line 6 Shortboard MKII. Which I think is a better deal. As far as the Express goes, it's light, portable, easy to use, lots a features. But If I were you I would save up to get the Shortboard (unless you use Spider 15 & 30 cause it's incompatible) which gives you some more features like a full LCD screen, easy access to quick loop, change the effects bank, access amp boost, and turn on the effect knobs while playing, etc.To sum it up, the Line 6 Express MKII is an awesome little footswitch for budget performers, inactive musicians, etc. But It won't completely unleash your Line 6 amp's potential, if you want to completely bring out Line 6's awesomeness get the Line 6 Shortboard MKII

Compact Full Featured Unit

Comments about Line 6 FBV Express MKII Guitar Footswitch:

I ordered the spider IV 30 amp and, this footswitch completes the package. Very easy to use, nice volume pedal/wah,tuner alone is almost worth the price, solid well made unit, channel switches are in the right place and, seem well made. It fits perfectly in the Gator Gig12 bag. If you own the amp get the pedal you'll be glad you did.

    OK, but lacking

    By GregS

    from Wisconsin

    Comments about Line 6 FBV Express MKII Guitar Footswitch:

    I purchased the Express Footswitch to control my Line6 Spider III. It basically does what it says it does, but after using it for a while I find it lacking.The four small pedals swap you through your presets A-D. However all Spider combo amps have multiple A-D sets (numbers 1 through ??? depending on amp) and the footswitch cannot swap between sets. I like to come up with a setting or two for nearly every song I play, or at least for each band/style and once I got past four predefined settings, I had to walk to the amp to switch to a new set. Not the end of the world, but isn't the point here to be able to control the amp without walking over to it? The 'wah' function works, but it is weak. If you want a true 'wah' effect, this pedal probably won't quite do it.It has failed a few times (lost volume, wouldn't change channels, etc.) but a restart of the amp fixed it.If you really want to control your Line6 amp, I'd recommend considering the FBV Shortboard. I plan to upgrade.

      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.

      By Butzopower

      Comments about Line 6 FBV Express MKII Guitar Footswitch:

      Aside from updating your firmware, the MKII just seems like a splashed up version of the original FBV series. The best thing, however, is that they improved the wah pedal, hopefully the squeaks that plagued the first series in gone.

        I love this thing. Its nice and compact, so it doesn't take up much space in my home practice space, it seems made to be very durable, you can get away with stomping this little guy a bit at shows or practice or whatever. Its a great versatile took.

          This is a must have if your amp can use it. In addition to channel selection and access to the tuner you get volume and whaw control. Very compact but not too small. 5 Stars for the price/value. Enjoy.

          Great value.
          Quick access to programs, volume controll and tuner. Very good quality with reguards to construction and look. Big enough to see, and yet small enough to pack. Work's great with my Fender Jazz bass and Line 6 Low Down bass rig, which is a value in itself. Will be loyal to thier prouducts if they keep up with thier quality and reputation.

          Not professional musician, I ordered this product and received it promptly.
          Product performs well, wah pedal is not like cry baby but does a little wah.
          I thought I could set the 4 selector to whatever sound I wanted but it only cycles through the 4 sets of sounds per channel. Still nice and love the tuner, bright and easy to read.

            You would think a pedal for any line6 product would cycle thru the presets. For the money, it should at least do that. The wah is very good and so is the tuner. If your just looking to switch channels, buy the FBV 2. The extra money you save can be put towards something else you can use.

                I got one open box so the price was very nice. Cheaper than any effects pedal I could buy. Works perfectly with the Line 6 viper. This one just has the four pedals so you can set up 4 channels for use with the tap of the foot. I don't think the instructions mention it but basically, just hit a pedal, dial in the sound you want on the amp, then hold the channel button for that pedal down on the amp for a few seconds and it programs it in. Move to the next pedal rinse repeat... The Wah is pretty good. More like a Morley than a Dunlop. Maybe too much high end on the wah but you quickly get a feel for it and just don't stomp down all the way like you might on other wahs.
