I used the short board that a friend loaned me tonight for a gig. Overall, I found it pretty good. My only complaint is that they should stagger the on/off switches because it is a little hard not to hit the switches on the bottom row when you are trying for a switch on the top row - especially in dimly lit clubs. I think if they corrected that, it would be an awesome controller.
Line 6 is the top of the 5 major companies I do business with...The support forum and staff is the best period....I own several pieces of Line 6 gear....including the Spider 150 Combo, the Spider Valve 1X12, POD X3, Express Pedal, Original POD, Spider 3 30, and now the Shortboard....Line 6 Rocks!!!The Shortboard is a great tool with the Spider 3 amps....and puts the amp or the POD "at yout feet"Very easy to set up..a single Cat5 cable..and easy to operate....Next to the Express Pedal...it is the next step for the Spider's and POD's...and makes my live set-up simple and sweet!
I've had a line 6 spider III amp for about 2 years now, as my amp for at home. I also have a spider III hd150 half stack combo for shows. I don't know how I have been playing without this shortboard; at home and live. It is a great value. If you have a line 6 that is compatable with the fbv then i highly suggest getting it. It frees you from having to walk back to your amp which looks highly unprofessional, and it acts as a great wah/ volume pedal. The wah and volume pedals sound great and work great. This pedal makes playing more convenient, fun, and better sounding. It also enables you to have more variety in your songs, if your into that. BUY THIS PEDAL!!!!!
I got the FBV shortboard about six months ago. It makes playing shows much easier with the 36 presets and I love the wah/volume pedal. You get a better feel when writing a song because you dont have to fumble around with the amp. Over all I'm not sure how I got by without this, its the last pedal you will have to buy if you use line 6... what are you waiting for?
Overall very pleased. I use w/PodXT, & really need the foot controller to play live.Raves:- Very solid?important for anything underfoot.- One cable powers & caries control signals.- Functions are well thought out & let me do lots of useful performance things, depending on how I program my Pod.Rants:- If you want to use an external expression pedal, you really need the cheesy Line6 pedal?regular volume pedals will NOT work right, in spite of what the manual says.- Due to the way Pod's Delay Mix parameter works, the tweak pedal goes from 0% to 100% delay mix, but who has any use for more than 50% ? No way to limit the tweak range & tedious to adjust playing live.- Buttons click LOUDLY. It might be an issue if recording w/live mics. I wish it used momentary switches. It's hard to tap tempo accurately with that click/resistance.- Toe switch for the wah pedal is hard to press. I have to STAND on the pedal.- Lots of noise if guitar input cable comes close to Cat-5 cable.

Having purchased the Flextone III recently, I found myself fumbling with knobs at my gigs before I came to the conclusion that there is no way to change amp models on the fly, unless you are satisfied with the 4 presets that the amp itself allows. The FBV is the solution, and it is now unimaginable using this amp without it.This beast is built like a Sherman tank, and it is very easy to start filling up the 36 presets with a variety of great tones.The amp and the FBV shortboard were made for each other, and should be a package, but clever Line 6 keeps you coming back to spend more jack!Nevertheless, this combination is a bargain for the assortment of quality tones one can acheive at the click of a switch. I found the majority of the presets didn't suit my taste, but that only allows more personalized settings to be created by the user.If you own a compatible Line 6 amp, this item is a must have, and the enjoyment outweighs the pricetag once you fire it up and discover it's charms.
First of all, this pedal board is strictly a controller for a Line 6 amp. It DOES NOT contain its own sounds or Wah tones. I use it with my POD XT PRO and it's amazing. It's totally seamless and quiet. Tweak out your modeler the way you want it, and then toggle between the presets with the pedal - or tweak out the parameters on the board as well.
I use this pedal with my Line 6 FlextoneIII. it adds many many chanels to the amp as well as making tweaks easier because the amps controls are on the top. my only dislikein this pedal is the pedal.. the volume option isnt great and the wah is too sharp to use on anything but clean ut its a nice vintage tone... the display is bright and clear, the tuner is alright but not totally accurate all the time price is steepbut hey! its an awesome pedal so try it out!
This product is great, I used in junction with the Line 6 Spider III head. It's easier to tweak the sounds I like, then store them using the board. Definite buy. I might to sell all my pedals now.
