Hd500x With A Non-effects Loop Amp?

Hello all! I am considering getting an hd500x. Eventually I'd like to get a DT25 or 50.

 

However, that is a ways away. My current amp (that I really love) is a marshall sl5. It does NOT have a loop on it. I am really just buying the HD for effects for now. Used to have a Vetta II and sold it like an idiot (I should know better, in 23 years I've never sold a piece of gear I didn't eventually regret selling).

 

Will it sound decent when using my current amp?

so you love this amp and want some effects to run in front... why a POD?  why not an M9/13 or a Zoom/Boss something or other?  Do you want the amp modelling?  I ask because this is a great little amp but it is not a great candidate for a modeler...

 

That being said, if you just want to run the effects in front with the POD, the effects are M class and sound great.  I am sure they will work fine but I don't think you will be happy trying to run different amp models through it...  now if you get a DT later you will be all set...

You guys are exactly right, I'd disable/bypass (whatever the hd500x nomenclature is) the amp/speaker models. If it has mic models on it like the vetta, I'd disable those as well.

 

Short term goal: replace my expensive, but cumbersome pedal board. Long term goal: get a DT series and a variax. :)
