Everything you need!!

This thing has everything you need and you don't have to haul around a bunch of pedals. It's all right there. The only thing I added is a volume pedal, and I was able to place it between the distortions and the delays. It's beautiful. I play as part of the worship team at church and the M13 gives me all the combination of effects I need. Thanks to Alan Carter for all his help and advice.

Everything makes sense.

When you look at what you get here and compare it to the price (and trouble) of a populated pedal-board, the M13 is an easy decision. As with any multi-effect, about a third of the patches will be used by any one guitarist. About 20% of them will be used regularly. This unit has about 100 effects (not 75 as shown here) so that's 20 pedals your average guitarist will actually use. Even with that, even looking at the M13 in the most conservative fashion I can, it still wins out over individual stomp boxes. 20 pedals is a lot for a pedal-board, would cost over $2000 and would be a roadie's maintenance nightmare. And those 20 and more are as good as, in some cases better than the pedals they're modeled after -- in most cases with the same or more adjustable parameters. Many effects are true stereo, which, being a stereo-guitar nut -- I love (built my own set of stereo ported cabs with Jensen Blackbirds!). So what do you do with your present pedals? I bring a good delay, a good boost/distortion pedal and a Boss NS-2 along in a bag as a backup. I would like to suggest to Line 6 one improvement for the next version. This is ONLY an effects pedal and doesn't include any amp models or a dedicated earphone plug. That's actually good, but the addition of one vanilla amp model each of a 6v6, EL34 and an AC30 would allow for silent practice sessions and auditioning and adjusting the effects without additional gear. They could actually add that as an update to this current version, using the present outputs and a "Y" cable for the phones. Knowing Line 6, there's enough unused processing power to inject some simple amp models.

Very convenient!!!

So I've finally been able to sit down and write about this product that I got for Christmas 3 months ago. I've been a long time line 6 user since the original logo :) I'm very happy with this Stompbox modeler! Easy setup, don't' need to worry about batteries, bad cables and noise. The sounds are just as great as the original pedals. Built very well. When I opened the box the power supply was missing and Sweetwater sent me a new one right away. I have nothing bad to say about this company. These guys do great business. They are my go to, and always take care of me!

Incredible Line 6 Product!! Great with Tube Amps!!

The M13 is an outstanding piece of gear. I've never really loved Line 6's amp/cab modeling stuff. I had the HD147 and liked it for a couple years. But I could never get the tone I wanted. Then I bought a tube amp. A Crate Palomino V32. But lost all the versatility with effects. So then I bought the POD X3L. It had no depth and took all the character out of the amp. So I went the all pedal route. Boss DD-20, L6 Verbzilla, Seymour Duncan Twin Tube Classic overdrive pedal. Blackstar HT-Dual OD/Dist, etc. I was really happy!! Then I saw the M13. I was totally floored by how many different effects that were in there and the versatility of routing the "pedals" in order of one another. ITS SO VERSATILE!! The effect quality is right up there with their 4 button stomps (DL4, MM4, DM4, and FM4) after all it was designed to encompass all of those pedals into one package that has a footprint that is just a couple inches bigger than 2 of the 4 button stomps. The tone of my amp stays the same, and I have all of the delays, reverbs, mods that I could ever use!! You can still use any of your analog pedals (I still have my Blackstar) because there is an onboard effects loop and you can route your existing effects before, after, or anywhere in the middle of the M13. Its incredible!! I'm so happy I bought this pedal, and it was worth every single penny!! Try one out for yourself and you'll be pleasantly surprised with it!! If you don't like Line 6 gear because you're a tube junkie, forget all of what you thought you knew about Line 6 and try this pedal as soon as you can. I think Line 6 may have taken a new turn with their products and this is definitely an awesome new direction for the company. This pedal rocks!!!

This thing is amazing!!!

I've never seen a guitar effects pedal with so many insane combinations of effects!! It has a little bit of a learning curve. But this is the coolest effect device I've bought in sometime. I like the fact that you have knob you can edit your sounds with as opposed to have to go through tons of parameters like you would with a Boss GT-5 or GT-6, etc.. And it simply sounds amazing. I look forward to recording with it. You can come up with some amazing stuff to set the mood of a song your working on. Every guitar player should have one just like the Sweetwater Expert said. Buy it. You won't be sorry!!

Sweetwater Advice

Mike Defraties

This stompbox replaced my entire pedalboard several years ago. Since then, I've used it at several gigs and on dozens of recordings. It'll be the cornerstone of my pedalboard for years to come.

James Shilliday

I've been using the M13 in my live rig and home studio for years now. I think the most useful feature is the global tap tempo. A single footswitch syncs all of my time-based effects, making it easy to introduce a sense of cohesion to my weirder tone experiments.

Nick Schenkel

Don't be fooled into thinking that this is just for guitar players. The M13 has such a wide array of high-quality classic effects available that I find myself using it with my keyboard rig as much as with my guitars.

Scott Augustyniak

Since I purchased the M13, my stompboxes are currently collecting dust in their original boxes. I've used it at home and for live shows and have had nothing but amazing results. The effects are color-coded for easy navigation, and the metal chassis and switches make it very durable.

Scott Augustyniak

The line 6 M13 is the ultimate solution for guitar players. If you are anything like me, you like to use a lot of effects and stompboxes to add some colors to your tone. Since I purchased the M13, my stompboxes are collecting dust in their original boxes. This stompbox modeler from Line 6 has improved my playing significantly. I like to use the 28-second looper and practice scales/modes behind a rhythm track. The delays are fabulous sounding, and the filter effects always bring a smile to my face. I have used it at home and for live shows and have had no major issues or complaints. The effects are color coded, which makes navigating much easier when flipping through the different scenes. The different I/O options are great for guitar players that use an FX Loop. The metal chassis and switches make this unit very durable which would be a benefit to a band that is always on the road. Overall, I would recommend this to any serious guitarist that wants a lot of effects.
