About This Listing

Up for sale: Line 6 HD500X multi-effects pedal. Unit purchased new in 2014. Used a lot but still very functional. Includes a new after-market power supply. (The original power supplies were not durable whatsoever.) 

Issues: 

1) Crack in the screen. Noticeable but really doesn't make it any harder to read - in my opinion anyway. Check out the pictures. 
2) Knob 4 is broken. There is a still a chunk of the knob left. If you spin the remaining chunk, it still works. The occasions that I felt I needed to turn it, I would find something the right size to stick in the hole and make it spin. (Probably not a best practice, but it worked.) This knob is used mostly for things like tweaking parameters on pedals... For example: the milliseconds/beats on the delay or a knob on a tube screamer. This has been broken for a while and I still found ways to tweak it when I needed to - which honestly wasn't very often because I was content with enough of the tones I had made. I'd imagine the knob could be replaced. Never tried. Or you could craft an extra piece to go on top of the remaining knob. Definitely would be a relatively simple solution to get this knob functioning well again. 
3) One of the "ABCD" foot switches requires a little more pressure to engage than the others. If you push it and it doesn't change, push it harder. Might need attention but that approach always worked for me. 
4) General cosmetics. This thing's got some miles on it. Scratches and dings. Bumps, bruises. If you're looking for a pristine unit, this isn't it. The starting price reflects that. :)

Shipping: Free to continental US. 

About the product: 

I really like these units as a swiss army knife for both electric/acoustic guitar and bass. They can do a million things. For guitar, I like coupling these with Fishman LoudBox amps. Running it in stereo is cool but I never did it live. These are fun and inspiring to play through but I'll be the first to admit - they're not a tube amp. These can sound quite processed and compressed if you're not careful. But you can get some quality tones on these things. Obviously at this price point, it is not without flaws. You'll find things you like and things you don't. They can be useful for gigs where you need a bunch of tones - definitely effective in the worship setting. These are equally at home running direct to your board, into an FRFR speaker, or into the front of a tube amp. Word of advice: don't expect it to translate perfectly between different sound systems. This pedal is aimed at electric guitar but it handles acoustic guitar fine too. You can use it as a recording interface. It has a mic input if you want to add vocals. One of my favorite uses was coupling it with a 15" powered monitor and playing bass through it. The detune feature doesn't track well with chords but it handles single notes with ease - making it perfect for bass. Half or a whole step down is just a toe tap away. Super useful if you're playing with a band with a guitarist that has a second guitar that is tuned down. Also great for switching between instruments on the fly. Mute one instrument, switch the patch for the new ax, good to go. The tuner is good enough and the looper is fun to mess around with. Pretty easy to use if you understand how guitar pedals work. If you don't? Well, enjoy messing around with the pile of patches already on there! Apparently lots of people like to hook these things up USB and tweak on the computer. I never tried but I hear it's the way to go. I've owned a few of these already. I'd imagine it won't be my last one. I'm currently enjoying my Fender Deluxe. :)

Not a perfect piece but quite functional still. If you know how these work already, the other issues will be negligent once you solve the knob 4 problem.

Thanks for looking!
