PICK THE RIGHT POD HD X
FOR YOUR SETUP


Define your own sound.


The POD® HD X family includes two powerful models, each with HD amps and world-class electric guitar effects. Both models function as full-featured audio interfaces, and offer form factors that are ideal for different scenarios. Simply pick the model that’s right for you.

 

POD HD500X


Perfect for stage and studio.


POD HD500X is the ideal command center for your stage or studio setup. Pro-grade footswitches feature bright LED rings that are clearly visible from anywhere on stage. Assign multiple amp and effects parameters to the expression pedal and morph between sounds. Plus, the footswitches control the built-in 48-second looper, an instrument unto itself. With rugged construction and a bent-metal chassis, POD HD500X is ideal for any stage.
