Topic starter  

I just received a pocket pod form line 6 for my birthday. How do I use this thing? Can I hook it up to an amp? What amp would be best for this?? My amps were recently stolen with all but one of my guitars. I was given this to keep practicing with headphones. I do miss having an amp, can this be hooked up to one. Any help would be great.

Congrats on the new toy! :D
You can use it with and without an amp, using headphones.

There's an "Amp Out" port for just that purpose. I suspect it would work great with a Roland Micro Cube or similar. I have my Amp Out hooked to a mixer input and the mixer to a pair of active monitors, and that works great too.

There are a couple of different EQ settings for the Amp Out - be sure to check the manual and set that up for the best sound.

It works very well with headphone, and at least "sounds" like you have an amp...

Anyone ever used a bass with one of these? I was thinking of getting a bass v-amp so I have a desktop modeller/PC recording tool/headphone amp but want to play guitar and bass through it. Like the look of the pocket pod and the fact it runs on batteries and can be clipped to a strap.

The last thing you'll want is a cube amp, or any other modeler. The pocket pod is full-fledged modeler that only needs neutral amplification. Anything will work really, just use it as a preamp and dont use a second preamp if you go for a combo.

Darth: I haven't hooked my bass up to the pocket pod yet (I'll have to tune it first!) but there is an entire "BASS" section in the presets, so I'm assuming it will work pretty well.

The Cube's "JC Clean" channel or AUX IN will work for this.

You can ride a Yamaha, or play a Yamaha, it is up to you.
