The ME-50 which is made our of metal and comes loaded with 20 Boss effects for the price of about 3 Boss stand alone pedals.


There must be a reason for it...I think.. wink.gif

EQ pedal is cool to have on board smile.gif

Normally I just plug pedals in a row and into the amp input. Didn't realise you had to have an FX Loop. But I think mine does have an FX loop. It has send and receive I believe. To be honest it could have a thousand pounds strapped to the back of the amp and I wouldn't notice lol biggrin.gif

My previous JCM800 had a fx loop. You don't have to have it but it doesn't hurt.

Yeah, well, everything comes at a cost so saying the ME-50 is worth $100 times 20 pedals is not right. I agree. But if you want them all and can't afford the analog effects pedals at single price, it's worth something wink.gif

I'd reccomend a TC electronics G-Major, G-Force or a nova system by them..

All great quality stuff.

Hi. I had the XT live and now I own a X3 live. So I guess I can say a few words.
From what you said, I believe that the POD X3 Live is not exactly the piece of equipment you are looking for (at least not for the reason you mentioned). You have a great amp and is looking for something that will make your live sound better. That may be achieved by the X3 live, but probably can be done on a better way with cheaper stuff. wink.gif

That said, the POD X3 Live is such a great piece of equipment. smile.gif For the same price, I don't know any other device that delivers you so much. What is really amazing is amplifier simulation (not perfect, but who can buy 78 different amplifiers? Also, you can get great sounds even at low volume. I think of that as saving my ears). However that is not supposed to be used on top of a real amplifier. I am using the X3 live now for practicing and also playing directly into PA. It is also much better to carry it to a rehearsal than an amp.
Next, I want to buy a tube amp and I will use it only for effects. Eventually, I will buy individual effects and then the POD X3 Live will still be useful for recording(specially at home), practicing and also as a backup.
So, to me it was the perfect piece of equipment to me now.
In the end, you should test it and you may actually decide to buy it for other reasons you did not consider before.
