I have owned Line 6's M13 Stompbox for a few years now. It has proved itself a faithful stompbox, a fantastic compliment to my musical kit for a whole host of reasons. The most important is the remarkable range of sounds it provides is remarkable: over one hundred distinctive sounds. Experimenting with such an array of sounds, some which travel to the edge of the unusual, others which hark back to the classic sounds of famous amps of legendary past musicians, is something I found to be endless fun. It would probably have been adequate had that one hundred sounds been the extent of this perticular stombox's amplifying powers. But, in my opinion, an even better oppertunity arrises from the ability to mix together the different sounds and ultimately create unique exciting sounds through the pre-provided aural building blocks. It is rather inexhaustable.
Of course one might, as I did, fear any experiment might be lost without the ability to record. That is a fear quickly quenched by the M13. It comes ready-made with a loop pedal to store any sound you may create, stumble accross or design. Its great to be able to store some unique sounds, to experiment over them, and to in essence become a one man band. And you can even use the looper pedal in isolation as tool to hear yourself play, to recognise where your playing is weak, and to work on it. This pedal certaintly helped my playing get better through this feature and it is an undeniable positive.
As far as negatives go, the main stumbling block for a potential buyer might be the frankly hefty price. Is this box proving value

for money, one might ask? My advice would be a qualified yes. The sounds offered make the M13 far better value than individual pieces of equipment that offer only a fifth of the sounds and none of the experimental potential that so bequiles me about the M13. But at the same time I urge you to remember the sounds the M13, while varied and very good, are only imitations. They are not perfect and you will not be getting Hendrix's amp when you plug into one of the distortion features. So if perfection is your musical game, no, the M13 will not provide you value for money, and only fustration.
So I like the M13. It is a wonderful piece of kit for the experimental child in every musician. But it is not cheap and it is value only for its range of sounds, not for the undisputable quality of their imitations.

Good review - however adding a price and any accessories you get would be beneficial to any new buyer.
