This pedal is a must have for anyone who has a compatible Line 6 amp. You can save many more amp settings and name them. Its perfect for playing out. No external power source needed. Very rugged.
I use this with my Spider II 112. It really should come standard with the amp (or MF should offer the two as a discounted combo). The controller uses the base models on the Spider and tweeks the EQs and effects to get additional tones. There are some great sounds available on the board, but most are rock/metal. Any of the sounds can be modified or overwritten if you just don't like it. The built-in wah is a sweet feature. It's not particularly extreme in it's tone - it's more like a standard CryBaby than a Q. It'd be nice if you could alter the depth of the wah to get more of a Hendrix sound. The bonus being the board attaches to the amp via ethernet cable, so it doesn't add additional noise to the signal like a stompbox or wah, it just controls the amp. That means the wah feature is already built into the amp, but you need to buy this to access it. Weak.My biggest gripe with the controller is that it doesn't contain or access the amp's original 12 sounds, so if you like those you have to either overwrite a sound on the controller or go back to turning the selection knob on the amp itself. I like the Spider's stock Van Halen and Mesa models, so I had to replace sounds on the controller. Luckily the controller comes with a few lame sounds that won't break your heart to replace.All in all, I'd say this is a must-have for the Spider series.
I love my shortboard, I use it constantly with my many bands all of which are different. From math metal, to jazz it rules and it gives me the direction I demand.
I love the FVB short board, It gives me everything I need to keep on playing. My only gripe is, line should have made 2 pedals instead of one and the price is a little steep. But thats life. All and All, this product is a must have for your 2x12 spider amp.
I use this to play for the junior high youth services at church, its great. it provides easy transistion from distortion to clean to jazz sound or whatever you want, and with a gibson and a line 6 pod on the other end, great sound for the money. the reason for the eight on quality is because the wah stopped working, either from long use or from one of the crazy junior high kids jumping on it, either way, it broke.
I just got this board a couple of days ago and man it is sweet. This is a must have with any one with a line 6 amp. You get total control with your feet so you can spend more time making music. The wah is a bit shallow, but I have a Cry Baby to take care of the wah. This unit is awesome.
ok first off im a hardcore diehard fan of Line 6.this is a great footcontroler, unlike other companies Line6 (the best company in the world) makes real footcontrolers, not 1 button plastic pedals that break easily. this thing gives you wah/volume pedal and program naming as well as channel switching and fx on/off. it is VERY rugged. it is hard to turn on/off wah at first (but after a while you "work in" the switch so it gets easy to switch) but that shows how rugged it is. i mean like standing on the pedal, wow, it doesnt hurt it at all the price is very steep (in my opinion) but very well worth it.w/ it you get access to all of the 36 presets (up from 4 w/o it) and you can even name themoh man time to tune up. never fear FBVSB is here it has a tuner. even in a dark closet w/ no windows its easy to see because it has a lighted screen. it can tune any tunings (not just standard) drop d, half step, whatever you want
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.
Have a few friends with this thing running to their line 6 spider 212 combo's and it makes all the difference, so much esier with it than without. If only it wasn't to pricy.
Seems to cost more than it should, but this controller really unlocks my Spider II 112. I didn't know my amp had these sounds. Fits in the back of the amp for carrying (wrap a towel around the controller to prevent scratches against the magnet). I love this thing.
