Hey guys, 

 

Love this forum, so helpful compared to some out there. 

 

I am looking to sell my ENGL (dont need 150w) and use my POD X3 a bit more - i have some great patches downloaded from Reece Fullwood (Mask of Judas) and Drewsif Stalin - I recommend you check out these guys if you havent heard of them - i nearly quit when i heard Reece!

 

Anyway - i have a 2x12 laney ironheart cab and an X3 bean - I was wondering.....

 

I see the X3 bean has a FBV input on it - does this mean I could purchase the FBV pedal and a power amp and i would be able to run my POD sounds live with the ability to switch around with the FBV?

 

I am desperate to get rid of my ENGL and 4X12 (moved outta my folks house into a top story apartment and my band practices miles away where we have to carry the gear down a long path.... 

 

I cant stands no more!!!!!

 

Help me friends!!!!

 

Lenny

Its easy to start,

 

Guitar -> pod(w/FBV) -> power amp/cab(s).

 

But you have sooooo many possibilities with the stereo outs, tone one & two, delays, etc. I've never been a giant fan of manuals but after you do the simple setup and get rolling, read that puppy :-)

 

Rock On!

Bill

You have quite a few options. You can go L6 or even a 3rd party midi controller.

Lots of floor boards :-)

I have both the X3 Pod and X3 Live and use them for both bass and guitar. I use a FBY shortboard with the Pod and the only gripe I have is that I can't switch Tone 1, Tone 2 or Both with the pedal. For bass I run into a Peavey IPR 3000 and a pair of MarkBass cabs. For guitar I plug into a Marshall 20/20 power amp into a pair of 1x12 Lopoline cabs loaded with Celestion Vintage 30's. The Marshall warms up the guitar sounds nicely. One of the reasons I got the bean Pod was because tweaking the X3Live on the floor was a PITA for me as I'm older and busted up from a motorcycle accident. With the Pod velcroed on top of my power amp rack case I can can make adjusts on the fly a little easier.

you can switch tones... not independently..... but just build and save the tones how you want them recalled, it's pretty simple. unless i'm misunderstanding the question.
