Product Description

Get the most from your Line 6 amp and POD with FBV Shortboard MkII foot controller! FBV Shortboard MkII isn’t your average foot controller. 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. 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 footswitches are conveniently laid out so that you’re not stepping on two at once (unless you want to)! The burly, full-sized pedal feels solid under your foot and features plenty of grip. 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. FBV Shortboard MkII connects to your Line 6 amp or POD via the included locking RJ-45 cable. FBV Shortboard MkII 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, FBV Shortboard MkII provides complete, hands-free control of the looper, pitch-shifter and other on-board effects. FBV Shortboard MkII is compatible with most Line 6 amplifiers and POD processors.

This pedal is great with my line 6 spider 120.

Now, it seems like a seriously worthwhile amp that I can gig with.

Like its predecessor is solid metal and built like a tank.

This review is specific to the FBV Shortboard with a Line 6 Spider IV amp.

I bought my Line6 Spider IV 75 (1x12) amp about 6 months ago and just recently bought the FBV Shortboard as I'm playing in a band again. I was fairly underwhelmed with the amp before acquiring the shortboard. Now, it seems like a seriously worthwhile amp that I can gig with.

A bit of background on me, I've been playing for close to 15 years, both casually and semi-seriously, as an amateur musician. I've owned everything from boutique tube amps (eg Egnater IE4) to simple old tube amps (50's Fender). For a while I thought Line 6 products were beneath me. I even considered buying the Spider IV "settling." Now? I'm definitely changing my tune. Discussion about the tone of the amp aside, the shortboard is the difference between the Spider IV being a neat toy for home and an amp you can actually use in live settings. The simplicity of having your entire rig in one amp and a single pedal unit with only a single 110V power supply between them is great. No worrying about a patch cable going bad or running out of 9V batteries. No weird hum from the poorly grounded club and your vintage tremelo pedal. It's nice.

Down to the board specifically... right out of the box, you can switch between banks and presets, turn the four categories of effects (stomp, modulation, delay, reverb) on or off, control tap speed, turn on the gain boost, run the looper and have a switchable volume/wah pedal. That's a lot of stuff with no setup. And if you spend a lot of time with the amp, you really don't need much more from there.

When you plug into your computer and use the Line 6 edit software, you can get a lot more out of this thing. For one, it's a lot easier to change the presets on your amp.

When I upgaded from a Spider 2 75W to a Spider IV 75W I relized that I should also upgrade my foot controler. The spider 4 has many more features and trying to control all that with only four buttons just wouldn't cut it. So I got the Line 6 Shortboard MKII and couldn't be happier. It has 13 switchs (buttons) and an Expression pedal that is programable. It's as durible as a tank and really opens up the capabilitys of the amp. The only real down side is that the downloadable Advanced user Guide covers ever product it can be used with witch is alot making finding the info for a particular product a bit cumbersum and copying it all off requires 82 pages. Hopfuly Line 6 will make a spider IV specific Advanced user guide (for the Line 6 Shortboard MKII) in the future so I don't destroy my printer. The pedal it self is an awsome product well worth the cost.Line 6 FBV Shortboard MkII Foot Controller

I own a Spider II 75W and bought this as a replacement when switches on my generation 1 shortboard broke. Apparently Line6 employs proprietary switches, so my local guitar shops couldn't find replacement parts for the original.

This is completely plug and play, like the original. While the switch layout is almost identical, the hardware has definitely changed for the better. The wah on the Mk II is much easier to engage than the original. The switches are easier to engage, requiring tapping versus the stomping required with the original. The board is noticeably thinner and slightly smaller from the top, but weighs roughly the same. Like its predecessor is solid metal and built like a tank.

The only flaw I can find is that the readout on the MkII is neither as large nor as easy to read in bright light/daylight as the original, with the new readout in orange versus the yellow/green of the original.

To note, none of my presets disappeared when I changed pedals, so those must all be saved internal to the amp itself.

This product is way better quality than I thought it would be- built heavy duty and to last, opens up whole different game when hooked to computer and makes amp so much easier to control and has great sounds to it. A must have with your line 6 amp.

I gig with this pedal on a weekly basis and it is very solid. The pedal and button functionality is great and I love that it uses a standard network cable for power and data. Genius! I highly recommend this pedal.

I just got a Line 6 Spider iv 75 watt amp a few days ago and I got this with it. The amp is truly the best of all time, and this just makes the amp way better. The point of this is that a bunch of effects are in the amp, but the floorboard gives better access. The wah-wah is in the amp, but the pedal for it is on the floorboard - same thing for volume or pitchshifting pedal. There's a loop machine, tap tempo, programmable effect channels, and lots of things inside the amp and this floorboard works with the amp as one unit in order to make the most efficiency. Get a Line 6 Spider IV and this floorboard, every guitarist should have it it's really the best ever.

For anyone who hasn't moved up from a simple foot swtich, now is the time with the FBV MKII. I can easily move from rythem to lead and song to song with the bank control, and give a liitle bit more puch withthe stomp button. It really plays well with the Strymon mod and the Pete Becker footswitch. The Midi control adds flexibility a big step forward, so to speak.
