Line 6 FBV Shortboard MKII

Recommended Posts


I've been a guitar player for almost 3 years now and I am deciding to upgrade my pedals. I play a Squier Telecaster Affinty and play it at church. I am thinking of buying a Line 6 FBV Shortboard MKII and I am having heaps of questions about it:

1. Can you control the pedal via the app on the Phone? 
2. How would you save and preset the effects that you wanted since you don't have a knob on the pedalboard itself.
3. Would you recommend it?
4. Since we play directly on the speakers through a DI Box, would it work?

Thanks for your help :)

The Shortboard MKII is not an effects unit or amp. It is just a switching unit with no "brain" of its own.

So no, you can not control it using your phone, as there is nothing to control. You might be thinking of the Amplifi FX100 - that *is* an amp/effectsmodeling unit in a floorboard. And you can control that one using your phone (but you can store all your settings into the device, so when on a gig you don't need to use your phone at all). And you could hook up the FX100 directly to the mixing console or active speakers.
