Saved Me $$$$$ On Pedals

Full disclosure - the first unit I got was DOA - Sweetwater immediately shipped me a new unit which worked fine out of the box. Love their customer service team. Combined with a Spider V 120, this board is literally worth it's weight in gold. You can program the amp to have basically an infinite number of pedals/stomps, and they are all color coordinated. Want a delay? Hit the green footswitch. Mod? Hit the blue. Distortion? Hit the orange. Compressor? Hit the yellow. The colors dim / brighten based on the on/off of the effect, and be moved in the chain, or on the board to get the layout you want. It all coordinates with the amp and you can scroll through sound banks, make user presets, or use the Tuner from the FBV. Possibly the best part is the looper function on some of the Spiders that are controlled by this. You just hit the function button to start recording, and hit it again to start the loop/stop recording. Infinitely easier than doing it by hand. I have thoroughly enjoyed this board. The combo wah/volume (toe switch operated) works well and has variable resistance. Great so far.

Great Floorboard for Spider V amps

I bought this with a Spider V 240. When you buy one, be sure to check the firmware. Some have newer, some may not. Go to Line 6 website and download the UPDATER. This software will access any Line 6 device connected to the computer. I loaded it up, connected the FBV3 which it found instantly, and then it prompted the unit had updates available. Press to complete and a minute later it's done. If you have older firmware 1.0 update ASAP so you can avoid the tuning bug (no flat note indicator on display though correct on the amp). I love the colored fx led rings. Really helps when gigging and in low light. The FBV3 housing is solidly built. Metal and the switches seem heavy duty as well. I am not the most thrilled as to the Function switch location for the looper, but it does work. Shaving half a star for that. It would be better if it was where the TAP button is located. The switch spacing is average for most boards, but wider spaced than others I have used. I have not accidentally hit the wrong switch yet. Expression pedal is good and solid. If yours squeaks, it may be too tight. Simple enough to loosen the nut if needed. Don't spray cleaners into the area though. Use a lithium grease dab on the mounting bolt or even vaseline would work. Many thanks to Dave at Sweetwater for his assistance in my purchases. Great Company

A necessity

This is a must have for using the Spider V amp in a live setting. The buttons and chassis are solid and will outlast any pedal system out there. The foot controls are actually give you more control of the amp than the face of the amp. The lighted buttons are an ingenious touch that is far more of a necessity than I ever imagined. The buttons are spaced closer than the HD500 that I have used for years, but it is worth it for the weight savings and space savings. The cord is coiled up tightly in the packaging and is very hard to get to lay flat on the floor, I mean near impossible. Not requiring external power, and not plugging directly into the pedal are the absolute best pedal experience ever. I bought the small pedal before, and it was a waste of money, this is 100 times better and more usable.

FBV 3 pedal

works great. the only negative is the cat 5 cable should be better quality if it will be moved around alot. i would have given it 5 stars if it was easier to program.
