Line 6 Intros Pod HD Modeling Multi-Effects Pedals

Line 6 has introduced a new family of POD HD multi-effect pedals, which debuts 16 brand-new Line 6 HD amp models and much more.

“HD amp models deliver sonic depth, character and realism like never before,” remarked Line 6’s Mike Murphy. “Over the last few years, we’ve had teams working on assembling a museum-quality collection of vintage guitar amps, restoring each amp back to its pristine state, and developing new HD amp modeling technology. The result is a collection of amp models that far exceeds our expectations and is the biggest news in POD since POD itself.”

The 16 HD amp models offer a wide array of amp tones, inspired by* a variety of immortal modern and vintage guitar amplifiers, including a Fender Twin Reverb, Hiwatt Custom 100, Supro S6616, Gibson EH-185, Divided by 13 JRT 9/15, Dr. Z Route 66, Vox AC-30 (Top Boost), Marshall JTM-45 MkII, Park 75, Mesa/Boogie Dual Rectifier, ENGL Fireball 100, and more. (Recognizable amplifiers modeled for previous POD products have been re-modeled for POD HD using the new HD amp modeling technology.)

POD HD500, the flagship of the three-product family, features a comprehensive collection of digital and analog ins and outs, a 48-second looper, and over 100 M-class effects. Made popular by the Line 6 M13 and M9 Stompbox Modelers, M-class effects excel at everything from vintage fuzz to modern pitch effects. Modeled after classic stompboxes and rack gear, or custom-designed by Line 6, M-class effects include tangy choruses, syrupy sweet reverbs, distinctive delays, and much more.

POD HD500’s back panel includes quarter-inch balanced and XLR unbalanced outputs, XLR mic input, stereo FX send and return, MIDI in and out/thru, S/PDIF and more.

PODHD300 and POD HD400 feature full sets of ins and outs, a 24-second looper, and more than 80 and 100 M-class effects, respectively.

Pricing:

  • POD HD300 – $459.99 MSRP
  • POD HD400 – $559.99 MSRP
  • POD HD500 – $699.99 MSRP
