Amplifi and EX1 or FBV Express MkII

Recommended Posts

I don't think the EX-1 can be used directly with the Amplifi, as it's just an expression pedal. The FBV Express MKII can be used, but I think it's a poor choice, because it's very limiting in its ability to dive deeper into the preset settings. All it gives you is the ability to select preset A, B, C or D of the selected Amplifi bank.

 

IMO, a used FBV MKII Shortboard or an FBV-3, despite the additional expense, is a far better solution. The Express is the equivalent of a 4-function pocket calculator, if you're old enough to understand the reference. 

 

Enhanced functionality on the other two devices will give you not only the A, B, C, D preset selection switches, but you will see a visual representation of the selected bank and preset, and there are also switches that allow you to turn off individual modules in the presets, like reverb, modulation, tremolo, etc.
