pod hd 500x

Recommended Posts

the alternative is? 

 

a new one for $500. 

a helix for $1500. 

A kemper for $3k. 

 

New, the 500x was/is the best device in its price range. Used would be no different - which means all of the boss and vox type devices are still not going to be better buys. 

 

*this assumes there is nothing wrong with the unit

not a bad price for a used HD500X, but you should carefully check that everything is working fine.

not so easy if you don't know well the device and what to check:

 

obviously all the knobs and switches should be checked,

the audio outputs (headphones included) and FX LOOP connections,

USB port (easily broken in used units) and it is very important,

the expression pedal

etc.

 

some of the above listed things need the activation of some blocks to be properly checked.

 

if you have a friend who knows quite well the device let him check it for you.

I'd consider the Helix Stomp new for $599.  It sounds a lot better and is easier to use.
