Line 6 Pod Xt, Pickups, And More! Cleaning Closet ;)

Recommended Posts

I started cleaning out my closet to see what guitar parts I could get rid of and found this pickup and alot of other guitar parts which I will list here soon. I'm having trouble parting with some of my guitar goodies. Most of you know how that is. lol

I figured this pickup will go to a good home if I placed it up on Projectguitar.com

It was never used but I dont have the original box.

Here is the description on ZZounds.com:

This is the pickup that started it all. Many of the classic Rock guitar sounds of the 70's and 80's were produced by a Super Distortion¬ and a raging tube amp. But don't confuse classic with outdated. Diverse artists from Al DiMeola, Frank Gambale, and Vinnie Moore to Metal veterans Iron Maiden and Ace Frehley have chosen the Super Distortion as an integral part of their personal sound. With plenty of output and mid-boost to boot your amp into overdrive, Super Distortion humbuckers put out a hot, thick tone with a tight bottom-end: a classic tone when plugged directly into the front-end of any high-gain tube amplifier. Used in the bridge position of a locking-trem equipped guitar, the Super Distortion puts back low-end the tremolo can bleed off. The Super is primarily a bridge position pickup, although it can be used in the neck position with a relatively low-gain amp. Specifically designed for solid-bodies; hollow and semi-hollow guitars can be hard to control with warm, high output pickups.

Tech Talk

When DiMarzio first built the Super, it was a one-conductor pickup. As a 4-conductor pickup, it's extremely versatile. Coil splitting produces a very Strat-like option, both in tone and power. Parallel wiring is similar to splitting, but it's still humbucking and a little more hollow sounding; Paul Gilbert used to use 2 Supers wired in parallel when he was in Racer X.

Firmware and software updates to the PODxt bringing it up to version 3.0 and giving it access to the Gearbox PC-recording graphical user interface make this an even sweeter deal. More amps, cabs, etc. available for free download. Also you can purchase add-on model packs.

Make sure registration information (if applicable) is transferred and you're golden with a decent deal on a great product.

Its also the mains convertor thing as well. Could i just buy a replacement power supply for the english mains or will i still need to use the convertor?

Im sure you can find a power supply for the english mains. Its a common 9vac with 2000mA. You can probably pick one up off ebay. You might be able to use a universal adapter too.
