HX-Quality Modeling for Authentic Tone

Thanks to HX modeling, the sounds and feel you get from the POD Express Bass are indistinguishable from the real thing. Seven amp models provide tones from classic to modern, with seven cabinet models to match. The 17 effects include distortions, compressors, synths, modulations and delays—even a looper for creative layering on the fly. The results are bass tones that inspire, with the nuance and complexity of high-end outboard gear.

Even with its impressive capabilities under the hood, the POD Express Bass is designed to be fast and intuitive. Familiar knobs for gain, bass, mid and treble make it easy to shape your core tone, while dedicated knobs for each effect type mean you can blend in the perfect amount of reverb, chorus or fuzz in seconds. Tap tempo and a tuner are also built-in for convenience on stage or in the studio. With the POD Express Bass, creative freedom is always at your fingertips.
