Get to know our team of experts! This article wasWritten By Our Product Research Team Get to know them! How'd you like to take your entire bass rig with you wherever you go? With the Line 6 POD Express Bass in hand, you can do just that — in fact, it's the company's most portable Bass POD yet. The POD Express boasts seven amp models, seven cab simulations, and 17 effects based on cutting-edge HX-derived technology, along with a tuner, a noise gate, and even a looper. This unit's simple control set makes dialing in thunderous bass guitar tones a straightforward affair; plus, since it can be powered by either batteries or an optional power supply, you can take it virtually anywhere. The POD Express flaunts tap tempo, stereo main outputs, and a stereo headphone output, and you get a built-in USB-C audio interface for effortless recording, monitoring, and re-amping. Finally, you can connect an optional expression pedal for real-time volume control or up to two external footswitches for preset selection and turning effects on and off. Over the years, the various iterations of Line 6's Bass POD have broken new ground in terms of functionality, portability, and sound quality. Offering more of the same in an even more compact form factor, the POD Express Bass makes for a stellar musical companion.

A bounty of HX-quality sounds

Lurking inside the POD Express Bass's unassuming and decidedly un-kidney bean-like, housing, you'll find a cornucopia of sounds, all derived from Line 6's award-winning HX family of processors. It all starts with seven amplifier and cabinet models: Vintage, Punch, Modern, Studio, Deep, Round, and Grit. Smooth out your bass lines with Optical LA Comp, Deluxe, and Limiter compression effects. Add character to every note you play with Octave, Growl, String, and Mutant synth effects. Light a fire under your tone with Boost, Overdrive, Distort, and Fuzz distortion effects. Infuse your playing breathtaking Chorus, Flanger, and Phaser modulation effects, or give your sound extra dimension with a spellbinding Delay effect. The POD Express also includes tap tempo, a noise gate, and a full-featured looper.

        Player-friendly features to spare

        Music Experience bassists love how the Line 6 POD Express Bass culls so many features. For starters, you can power it with either three AA batteries or an optional 9-volt power supply, allowing you to take it anywhere with or without your pedalboard. Stereo main outputs and a stereo headphone output enable you to perform, record, or practice with pristine stereo sound. The POD Express's built-in USB-C audio interface makes recording, monitoring, and re-amping child's play. You also get the ability to connect an optional expression pedal for real-time volume control or up to two external footswitches for preset selection and turning effects on and off.

        Killer tone doesn't get any easier than this

        Operating the POD Express Bass is as easy as can be. Its 5-knob interface includes Comp, Amp, Synth, Distortion, and Mod/Delay knobs that double as Gain, Mid, Channel Volume, Bass, and Treble knobs when you press the Alt button. You also get On and Tap footswitches. Finally, deploying the unit's built-in tuner and saving patches is just as intuitive. The POD Express is truly the most straightforward POD Line 6 has ever designed — just plug in and play!

        What Line 6 Says...

        Take It Anywhere. POD® Express Bass is an ultra-portable bass amp and effects processor that enables bassists to take their tones wherever they choose. Simple controls make it easy to use, while models derived from the HX® family of processors ensure exceptional sound quality and authentic feel. POD Express Bass gives bassists seven amps, seven cabs, and 17 distortion, compression, synth, modulation, and delay effects—including a looper—and it may be powered by three AA batteries (included) or an optional 9-volt power supply.

        Ultra-Portable

        The compact size and battery power option enables guitarists and bassists to take their POD Express device wherever they may roam.

        POD Express devices may be powered by three AA batteries (included) or a 9-volt DC power supply (sold separately).

        LED Ring

        Seven multi-color LED segments light to indicate various parameter functions. A red LED indicates the selected amp model when turning the AMP encoder. When holding the ALT button and turning the AMP encoder or an effect knob, the LED segments indicate the corresponding value. When turning an effect knob, the LED segments (1-7) indicate the level of the currently selected effect..

        ON Footswitch and LED

        Press to enable or bypass the device. The LED lights white when enableds

        TAP Footswitch and LED

        Tap this footswitch in time with the music to set the tempo of delay and modulation effects, indicated by the flashing red LED. Press and hold to engage the Tuners 

        Preset Mode Switching
