Pod Go - build quality, reliability

Hi, I consider getting a Pod Go as a fly rig. Can anybody tell me how well it is built and if it performs reliable. I am a touring musician with occasional fly in gigs and therefore want a lightweight and sturdy rig. Playing a wide range of shows (festivals, tv performances, headline shows etc)

 

I also considered building a board around the HX stomp, but cost is a factor, and a pedalboard with all its components would be overkill.

 

Maybe someone that heavily uses the Pod Go can help me.

Pod Go is plenty rugged enough for gigging and touring. But it's feeble power supply is it's Achilles heel. Make sure you have backups or better still, try and source a better quality power supply.

I used it exclusively for nearly a year...Mostly songwriting, rehearsals and a handful shows (2020, so not so much)...It was great...If you are able to scale tones down and understand how that works as I am sure you do, it should be fine...In the end, I could not get around how the blocks are restricted...So I opted for the HX XL....basically, it's a stomp with the same control layout as the GO...only thing you might need is an expression pedal. My patches spilled out into a pedalboard, but it really isn't a problem to use the XL on it's own...more scenes, paralell paths and more flexible block choices is where I landed...
