Pod go Review
Leonardo Pratas 09.12.2021
This unit is amazing, sounds as good as the full-size helix and for most people is more than enough the number of pedals it offers in simultaneous use. Absolutely recommend, especially if you are looking for a cheap rig that sounds amazing or a bedroom practice partner.


Helix sounds in a smaller and more affordable package
Archion 25.09.2021
As the other people have said before, it is a great entry to the Line6 Helix family. It sounds great and it is easy to use. The build is stirdy, especially the parts you touch with your foot. However I gave the quality 4 stars due to the knobs and encoders being a bit wobbly and I'm not so sure for how long they will last. Otherwise the design seems to be very well thought out.
The other problem I had with it that the FX-loop didn't work so well in stereo, meaning that after placing it after the stereo effects they collapsed into mono.
Finally I would give my 2 cents from the blindness perspective. I know we are a tiny minority and for most of the people it doesn't matter, but I'm not the only blind person who buys from Thomann, so maybe the following info can be just a bit useful. :)
It is quite usable thanks to the physical buttons, knobs and encoders. The latter ones do click when turned, so you can understand more easily where you are in the effects chain or in the menus. Of course reading the display is a problem but the manual explains them quite well. The only issue I have with it is that each effect modeled can have a different set of parameters and when you cannot see the display and they are not listed in the manual, it can get confusing quite easily. Fortunately trial and error when turning the knobs and listening with your ears usually helps. :)


Life-saving live rig!

It's super practical, has huge sound quality and it has a really cool price tag! It has the essential Helix effects, but in a small, compact and ready-to-go package. The fact that I can use it as an interface as well, and manage to download any plugin I want and upload it to the POD Go, is such a cool touch. If you're looking to upgrade your rig for the first time after a while, PLEASE get this. I highly recommend it.


Oh My Go(d)

I still have my first POD, a V2 kidney bean and that was amazing. Easy to use and capable of some great sounds.

I bought this during lockdown to see how I would get on with it.
I had bought the big Helix last Christmas but sent it back after two weeks with it. Nothing I did sounded right and I had a real issue with people telling me I needed to buy commercial presets to hear it at its best.
For me, something like a multi FX unit should be easy to use and easy to get great sounds without wasting your life watching YouTube tutorials and buying someone else's presets.

Thankfully this is much easier to program. It definitely helps using the PC Editor from Line 6.

Lots of great sounds inside the Go, and I found the best results starting from a blank preset and adding what I wanted.

There is also an active Pod Go community who share their own presets which are sometimes a better starting point than the unit's own Line 6 made presets that are on the unit already.

Depending on your amp model the Go can run out of processor power meaning a lot of the higher end FX are unavailable, it's a shame and I would have liked to be able to use any combination of any of the available amps and FX within the blocks available.

I know the HX Stomp has a bit more going on upstairs, but it only has the three buttons and no expression pedal, now the HX Stomp is available at the same price as the Go, I'm thinking of getting one and seeing which one I like best.

However as an all in one solution it's hard to beat the Go.
I paired it with a full HK Audio Linear system and it sounded massive, especially in stereo.
It also worked well with a Yamaha DXR12 and Headrush 108 FRFR.
With the Headrush it's a brilliant, powerful and tiny rig that would take any gig in its stride that you could carry in one hand.

All of the amps and FX sound good, certainly a worthy successor to the original Pod.
It feels solidly built and should last a good long while.

I have heard of some users having software issues but mine has worked perfectly.

I'm looking forward to getting out and gigging this, I've had a couple of (appropriately socially distanced) band rehearsals and it's performed well. A few more tweaks needed here and there, but no different from any other FX unit, pedalboard or amp combination.

On the whole I'm very happy with it.
