Hello Line 6 forum users!
I am thinking of returning the HX Effects I bought a couple weeks back and replacing it either with a Pod Go or Stomp XL.
i am basically trying to have a simple set up with an effects unit into a Tone Master Deluxe Reverb. All I want is to be able to have a preset per songs I play and a couple basic other tones when I go off repertoire. I play rock (Beatles, Stones, Queen, Led Zeppelin , AC/DC, Oasis, Coldplay+ Chili Peppers) + reggae + grunge (Nirvana, Offspring)
The HX FX seemed ideal but it turns out there aren’t many presets out there to download « per song » and I don’t have the skills to really dial in a tone per song.
So I’m thinking of going to PodGo or HX Stomp which have a much deeper community and vendors online.
i love the organic feel of the Tone Master and would ideally use the PG or Stomp as pedalboards with amp simulation off. I don’t need complex routing or effects, just good song based patches that I can tweak a bit to sound good with my amp. I have a wah pedal already (so neutral on that between PG and Stomp) and may buy a pedal to get more Marshall like tones as part of the setup.
what would you say is the way to go or the pros/cons of the two units given my goal?
