Ok, so I have been playing guitar for a few years. I have a Line6 Spider112© amp. It is suprisingly good, being that it is a digital amp (I have heard several amp tube enthusiasts praise Line6 for making a good digital amp). It has six amp settings, as well as a few delay settings and other various settings (flange, chorus, etc.). This is a nice addition to the amp, and is probably the reason I haven’t bought a pedal/effects thingy yet. But alas, it is the holidays and I think I am going to get one regardless. Playing with the reverb on my amp does get boring after a while.
So, I looked into the Line6 POD on their web site. Supposedly there is a PODxt now, with even more effects than before. It has 32 amp models, 100 bizzilion effects, a bunch of cabinet models, plus a complex effects editing system, a chromatic tuner, etc. A big must for me is to have wah-wah effects, which it says it has. It also appears that it comes with a few pedals, but it is a bit unclear as to if they come separatly or with the purchase of the POD.
There is also another good effects thingy which I have heard of (I believe it is something along the line of MPS or MPX or something). Knowing that I already have a Line6 amp, is it worth it to get a POD? Or should I simply get a wah-wah pedal and screw the 400 zillion effects on the POD. Does the POD come with a petal(s)? It appeared to come with 3 pedals, but then again they may have been deceiving me and I really have to get them separatly. Is there a better effects thingy/pedal out there which I would be better than a POD? Any help would be great.
Note: I felt this thread was best suited in CS, maybe I’m wrong though.
