The burly, full-sized pedal feels solid under your foot and features plenty of speed, tone, and control.

Line 6 FBV Shortboard MKII Footswitch isn't your average footcontroller. It's a full-on remote control that keeps you at the foot of the stage instead of tied to the front of your Line 6 amp or POD processor. It offers all the classic advantages you expect from a Line 6 foot controller, including rock-solid channel switches, a rugged wah/volume pedal and an oversized backlit display, but it's also full of surprises.

The steel footswitches give you total control over your tone. Dedicated footswitches let you change, scroll and select presets with uncompromised speed, add or remove effects in an instant, synchronize all your time-based effects with Tap Tempo, and more.

Load up to 64 presets in the 4 banks. Adding individual or simultaneous effects on top of each preset allows for on-the-fly colorization and customization of your tones. An added bonus: the well-spaced guitar footswitches are conveniently laid out so that you're not stepping on two at once (unless you want to).

Click the toe to volley back and forth between volume and wah-wah control. (Adding an expression pedal provides dedicated volume control.) Oversized and backlit, the LCD is big, bright and easy to read. It shows you everything you need to know including preset name chromatic tuner display.

Line 6 FBV Shortboard MKII is compatible with and connects to your Line 6 amp or POD processors via the included locking RJ-45 cable. The FBV footswitch also features a USB jack that can be used for upgrading the firmware of Spider IV and Spider Valve MKII amplifiers.

Perfectly paired with Spider IV and Spider Valve MKII amplifiers, this FBV Shortboard footswitch provides complete, handsfree control of the looper, pitch-shifter and other on-board effects.

Line 6 FBV Shortboard MKII Guitar Footswitch Features:

  • Total floor control of your Line 6 amp and POD
    Reliable steel footswitches
    Dedicated footswitches for preset bank select, bank scroll, effect select, tuner, tap tempo, and more
    Burly, full-sized volume/wah pedal with plenty of grip
    Oversized and bright LCD displays chromatic presets and tuner
    RJ-45 cable included
    Back panel: USB jack, RJ-45 jack, 1/4-inch expression pedal jack

  • Don't Try this at Home!

    As reviewed by Scott G Smith on 3/17/2012

    After 30+ years of carrying a huge array of foot pedals from show to show all over the country, Having to spend allot of time resetting each individual effect box before the show, and connecting and disconnecting the pedals with all the chords, This is Heaven for me! My computer sets my specific settings and downloads it straight to my Spider IV 75, then I carry my guitars and one amp and one board. Fast easy to use set up and use. Now I just have to remember which sounds I have in the several settings. I will say that I was surprised to find that this amp replaced a Mesa Boogie with very little sound loss!

  • Really completes the HD Pro experience.

    As reviewed by Jacob Fleming on 7/31/2012

    Awesome pedal, really makes playing live or jamming with the POD HD Pro a snap. Just to review, here's how it works with said POD: the bottom 4 switches (A-D) cycle through the next 4 patches on your POD, and the top left switches (with up and down arrows) cycle you through your "playlist" of patches 4 patches at a time; you then press one of the A-D switches to choose the patch. For example, say you're using patch 1 on your Pro. To use patch 2, just click pedal B. Bam. To use patch 5, click the up arrow once and then switch A. To get to patch 11 from patch 1, press up twice and then pedal C. It's really pretty easy and works great when you want to use a lot of different sounds in a live setting. The tuner is easy to access and shows up on the small screen, which is lit and easy to see on stage. The rest of the buttons turn on or off the various pedals you have turned on on your patch. However, you do need to figure out which corresponds to which, as sometimes "Stomp" with turn on or off "Delay" and so on. I need to mess with that a bit more, but I'm pretty sure that can be worked out in HD Edit. The quality of the pedal is great. It is thin, and yet feels solid, well-made, and reliable. The volume/wah pedal works very well, better even than the stand-alone Morley I have. The tapering is pretty smooth and works for volume swells, and feels like it can definitely stand up to the ol' NASCAR Foot (the condition of using the volume pedal to bust out way too many swells in a solo). Looks great as well, and I love the way it only needs one cable hooked up to the HD Pro to be ready to rock. So much more efficient than a full pedalboard. If you're using one of the HD models, get this guy as soon as you can. Makes the unit into the live beast it is destined to be, and even makes working in the studio efficient as heck also. I can't speak for how it works with other Line 6 units, but based on the other reviews here it seems great. My one suggestion would be also to consider the Line 6 footswitch bag. It's nicely made and makes storing and transporting the footswitch a breeze. Bottomline, buy it and rule the world.

  • AWESOME!!!!

    As reviewed by Nick Arquette on 7/19/2012

    I love this pedal. The wah is really responsive, it's so easy to figure out how to control your spider, mkII, or spider valve amps. Everything is mapped out in an easy to use configuration. Plus the updates for your amp and pedal are readily available whenever you are ready for that next step. If you have a recording program already, this is an outstanding hands free control for that as well. You can't lose with this pedal.
