I am currently using my JTV59 with a Pod HD500x.  I want to reduce my foot print and would like to replace the HD500x with the HX Stomp.  Will I be able to get as good or better acoustic sounds from this proposed product union?  I use both 6 string and 12 string models from the JTV59 and with the HD500x and I am currently getting pretty nice sounding acoustic guitar.  I don't want to buy the HX Stomp and find it lacks in this primary area of my usage.  Has anyone had an opportunity to pair the JTV variax type guitar with the HX Stomp?  (Specifically in the acoustic guitar sounds)

That's my go to rig but . . . I mean it depends on what you're asking.  If you're asking about the sound quality, the Stomp kills it.

 

If you're asking about functionality, the HD500x has a VDI input, the Stomp does not.  The consequence of that is that you lose a great deal of the flexibility of the Variax provided by the Pod. Changing to any tuning conceivable on the fly and stuff like that is greatly diminished. 

 

Practice using your Variax with just the battery, and then ask yourself if you're okay adopting that approach in order to receive better sound.
