Question About A Foot Pedel With Spider Mkii

Recommended Posts

Any one know if the Line 6 Floor POD Plus Wah pedal...... will work on the Spider Valve MKII - 112 or do you have to use the Line 6 FBV Short Board MKII Foot Controller?????

you need the FBV, the floor pod plus cannot be used as a controller.

I am about to buy a Spider Valve MkII HD 100 half stack.  Have a Vetta combo at home...with the FBV longboard.....  my question...   can I not use the Longboard for the Spider??  I hate to have to buy another footboard...  and I see there is an Express and Shortboard  both MkII...but I am wondering about the longboard before I spend more cash.

you can use the FBV longboard as a controller...

however, to update the amp you'd need one of the newer MKII pedals...

they have usb ports to connect to a computer (primary difference)

Not sure if this has been answered above but I have the FBV longboard (http://line6.com/footcontrollers/fbv.html )and had bought this to go with the HD147 some years ago - a great amp- It already has a wah and a volume on the pedal boad , why they stopped this I dont know

 

if my HD147 fails the next best thing looks to be the spider valve mk2 HD100 head but will this work with the longboard and use the volume AND built in wah pedal ? dont want to have to buy another pedal board as this works fine and wasnt cheap

 

I already read somwewhere that you can midi from the HD100 head to the PC so the fact the floorpedal doesnt connect to a PC isnt a problem ?

it will work fine for most things.... there may be some buttons that don't do anything... but that's normal as the longboard has extra "vetta" oriented buttons.

it will basically do everything the newer shortboard will do for controlling your amp itself...

the newer floorboard adds usb and the ability to update the amp, and edit/save tones.. none of that works with the longboard... just FYI.
