I've used and owned many multi-function pedals and this one has to get a best-value-for-the-dollar rating. We all know Line 6 was there at the very forefront of modeling technology and it is insanely clear with the quality of the models onboard the M5. The M5 is very robust... you could probably drive over it with a truck but I don't recommend this. Don't expect that all of the effects are usable for you but the number and quality of the reverbs and distortions alone are well worth the price of admission. The model of the Chandler Tube Drive is very convincing... so much so that it makes me want to buy one. I don't play like EJ but I sure can make a reasonable facsimile of his sound in about one minute! ... need I say more. The screen is a bit small for my old tired eyes but you can tweak the contrast in the settings menu and it is usable. Additionally, I wish Line 6 had added a headphone jack but they opted for MIDI in/out... perhaps the MIDI option was more popular back in the day when the product was released. If I run into a small inheritance, I will purchase more Line 6 gear in future... it seems rather pricey but I guess the end user will always pick up the R&D tab.


This pedal has everything you need from overdrive and distortion to reverb and delay and everything in between. Add an expression pedal and you can really have control over what you decide to dial in.

This Is AMAZING!!!!!

I love this pedal! Everything comes in this box! It took me only 5 to 10 minutes to set it up and figure out how to save presets. The instructions were very helpful. Mixing and getting the tone you want is very easy to do. Most of the distortions are fine but I use this mostly for the other time based effects. This just blows me away!

Amazing Sound Quality

I just received my new Line 6 M5 pedal yesterday. I ran through all of the patches and I'm simply amazed at the quality and amount of effects for the price. There are only a few patches that would probably never see any use. The majority will see a lot of use. I needed a swiss army do-all pedal for mods and filters. I am going guitar>fuzz face mini joe bonamassa>crybaby mini>tube screamer mini>front of amp, then in the effects loop I have line 6 m5>tc flashback mini>ditto looper. All going in and out of an Orange CR60C combo. This setup provides endless fun and insane tones. Could not be happier with the M5. Buy one, you will not regret it!

For the price this thing is pure gold. With the expression pedal there is just so much sound to be made. I just wanted a second delay and tuner, but got so so much more.

Sweetwater Advice

Scott Augustyniak

Being an owner of the M13, I can attest to the fact that the Line 6 M5 is a great way to get all the same benefits with a smaller footprint. The M5 is a "Swiss Army knife" for your current pedal chain, allowing you to save multiple stompbox settings without reaching down to adjust pedals between songs. If you use and need a lot of effects, this is a great piece to add to your chain!

This is one of those pedals who's price makes you think, "Why would I want to spend $199.99 on a single pedal?" This is because we're used to pedals this small being good at one, maybe two, things. It might also do some other things marginally well. But the Line 6 M5 Stompbox Modeler is an authentic museum of every great effect ever modeled by Line 6. It *IS* the DL4 Delay Modeler, the DM4 Distortion Modeler, the FM4 Filter Modeler, MM4 Modulation Modeler, Echo Park, Verbzilla, LiquaFlange, Space Chorus, Otto Filter, etc., etc., etc... And all the controls have their own knob; and you can read all the parameters at once! Plus, it's stupid easy to make any parameter move any amount, in any direction, just by moving a foot controller. Set a Min and Max for every parameter and when you move your pedal all of the assigned parameters will each move in their own amount and direction. You can then create incredibly complex sound changes with a simple sweep of your pedal. Pro-quality, stereo Ins/Outs means you can use this *anywhere* in you guitar, synth, vocal, or amp chain. External MIDI control allows you to change presets, switch FX on/off, simulate the expression pedal, and even sync the effect's clock with your sequencer or MIDI controller. Plus, it's got a tuner, a noise gate, and a choice of true hardwire bypass or the ability to have the effects trail off. The M5 is simply THE magic ingredient that will take your current sound over the top... that just happens to fit in your gig bag!
