Line 6 Pocket Pod Express
« on: June 22, 2011, 12:00:35 AM »
Anyone ever checked out the Line 6 Pocket Pod Express? It seems so simple to use. I want to spend more time playing, and less time trying to tweak my GT-5. I'm wondering if this might be just the thing I need since I already have an Moreley wah pedal, Line 6 roto-machine pedal, and a MXR Phase 90.

It has the amp models I would most be interested in using, and tweaking using knobs rather than menus is very appealing to me. I'm just wondering about the quality and durability at a $49.95 price point (which is also very appealing!).  :-\

At that price point, it doesn't seem like an expensive chance to take. Especially if it has some of the features you can use.

I had a pocket pod and liked it a lot-i used it when i played the drum show with my daughter it made my Crate amp sound great and it clipped right on to the amp handle 8)

I use the pocket pod, but not the express.  For the price of a new express you can find a used pocket pod.  Picked up mine for $60.

Yeah DB...I've been tuning in to that fact too. There are even some refurbs for $85 that include the power adapter, USB cable, etc. I think the A/C adpters alone are about $35 at most places.

I've made a discovery that Boss power adaptor works just fine for the pocket pod.
