The FBV MkII Express vs FBV MkII Shortboard
by alwaysrockin on 2013-03-19 23:32:28

hello everyone...new line 6 spider IV hd150 owner here, and would like to ask a question...

considering I`m not the fastest learner when it comes to this newer fancy stuff..LOL...should i still get the FBV Mk11 shortboard, instead of the more basic express version?...I can afford the shortboard if need be, but just not sure if it`s gonna be alot harder to learn to oporate and/or if it`s worth the extra $$ etc..any and all thoughts would be greatly apreciated!

FWIW, me and a few friends get together and play everything from light/acustic type music, to metal etc..so i do need to be ae to change sounds with relitive ease..

thanks in advance, and sorry if it`s a retarded question..LOL

It's all in how you want to use it.  If you want to be able to hit a button and turn on an effect like fuzz or chorus, then the Shortboard is the best option.  On the other hand, if you are going to be using the amp with one tone/sound per song, then switching to a different one for the next song, the Express will work fine for you.

I have been asking myself the same question. I decided to go for the Shortboard because I want to play more, play better and grow with my music.

If you can afford it I would buy the Shortboard over the express because your options are greater and it will give you more of the same in the future.
