Hd300 & Hd400 No Longer Available?

Recommended Posts

In contemplating adding an HD300 or HD400 as an FX/MIDI pedal, I see they are no longer available at my favorite online music instrument retailer and seem to be very scarce at others.

 

The HD500X is still there, but not these two and I was considering them, as the amp/cab sim's are of little interest for my intended use.

 

Is this old news or new developments post Yamaha acquisition?

The acquisition has not even happened yet so don't blame that.  It's more likely that the 300 and 400 are not selling and the 500X is a much better machine.

...so don't blame that.

 

I guess I want to make it clear that, although I understand how it could be interpreted as such, it is not my intent to "blame" as opposed to speculate and/or question.

 

I could care less who owns the Line 6 name as long as good product and excellent customer and product support remain.

 

Important point noted, kmoed.  MIDI is vital for my application.

 

Thanks for the responses.

If you want to run multiple quality FX with dual amps, you'll need the 500X.  Tape echos, the Vintage Mic Pre, reverbs, and other deep rich emulations take a lot of DSP.  It's a shame the 500 didn't have that essential extra 20% DSP to begin with.

The extra horsepower probably was not available when the 500 was introduced.  The extra 20% is from a new compatible DSP processor upgrade.

For visibility - the HD300/400 and Bean do not have MIDI jacks, so you will want to consider the 500/x if MIDI control is necessary for your needs.
