    hi,

    i am considering to buy this Line6 Bass POD that I have read about. I have to order it so, at this point, i have no chance of trying it.

    does any one of you guys have it and use it? would you recommend it? does it worth its price?

    i am especially looking for an effect/sound PANTERA bassist Rex might be using. will i be able to produce something similar with it (have 6-string ibanez soundgear customm though)?

    thanks in advance.

    I used a Bass Pod for well over a year and I loved it. We used in ear monitors so it went straight to the board and to my ears. Very nice unit with great tones and effects. I would defintely tell you to get the floor board, so you can add wah to any channel and switch channels on the fly. The only reason I got rid of it was because I found it a little noisy going through an amp for my taste. Not bad, but it bothered me. If that's what you want to do, I say get the rack Bass Pod Pro. I've heard it's quieter than the "bean" and has a few more features.

    But for the money, I recommend it all the way.

    thanx for your advice, modflea.

    it made my choce even harder because trying to decide between LINE6 BASS POD and ROCKTRON VOODU VALVE (http://www.rocktron.com/products/vooduol.html) which supposed to cost approx. the same price...

    which one would you pick?

    I think the line6 bass pod sounds great on bass. I always use effects on the bass guitar, such as synth units. The low end comes thru well on recordings, sounds good on a quality stereo. If you want to hear some samples go to my site, http://runbeerrun2.tripod.com the bass pod is on all bass parts even on the videos

    My Behringer V-Amp sounds great so i am sure the Line 6 bass pod sounds even better.
