Line 6 M9 Stompbox Modeler All-in-One Pedalboard with Over 100 Stompbox Effects

All-in-one stompbox solution
M9 Stompbox Modeler is powerful, portable and bursting with immortal stompbox effects. Its wide variety of vintage and modern tones makes it perfect on its own or an unrivaled addition to your pedal board.

Sink your teeth into over 100 distinctive distortions, tangy choruses, syrupy sweet reverbs, and many other kinds of expressive effects. They combine under your feet to form an instant collection of stunning stompbox tones (many of which are from DL4 Delay Modeler, Verbzilla and other well-known Line 6 pedals).

Built like three side-by-side effect units, M9 Stompbox Modeler lets you run any three effects simultaneously with any three others on deck. Mix and match as you please. You have 100% control over effect placement and effect type - arrange them into tried-and-true combinations or get creative and invent your own original blends.

Create up to twenty-four different effect arrangements, or "scenes" – one for your metal band, one for your Top 40 get the picture. No more tearing up Velcro just to switch out one or two pedals!

Included is a 28-second looper that provides the most fun you can have without getting arrested. It delivers extended, in-the-moment sound-on-sound looping and unlimited sonic possibilities. Six dedicated footswitches (Record/Overdub, Play/Stop, Play Once, Undo/Redo, Half Speed and Reverse) make it a snap to use.

M9 Stompbox Modeler is stompbox simple. There are no menus, no saving, and no hassles. Tweak your tones on the fly using the dedicated knobs and, just like with classic stompboxes, your settings will remain after you power down.

Stocked with inputs and outputs, M9 Stompbox Modeler will integrate seamlessly into your pedal board, your MIDI setup and all your live, studio and rehearsal scenarios. It boasts MIDI in and out, a pair of 1/4-inch expression pedal inputs and 1/4-inch mono/stereo inputs and outputs (with true analog bypass or DSP bypass).

Line 6 Limited Warranty

Please be aware that your warranty is only valid in the region where you purchased your unit. For instance, if you buy your unit in Germany, then you must have the unit serviced in Germany, or within that region. If you live in South America, you will be interacting with the distributor for the country that you live in. It is for this reason that Line 6 recommends that you always buy your unit locally.

You will need to present your original, dated proof of purchase to have any warranty work performed at any Line 6 Authorized Service Center for repair.

Helix Extended Warranty

Customers who purchased a Helix Floor, Helix Rack, or Helix LT processor, or a Helix Control pedal in the United States and have a copy of the original purchase receipt qualify for the extended warranty. Customers who qualify will have a second year added to their current one-year Helix Warranty at no cost upon registration.

Registration is required within one year of the purchase date. You already qualify if you've registered your Helix and have a copy of the original purchase receipt. Otherwise, register your product at the Line 6 website and make sure you have a copy of the original purchase receipt.

Line 6 warranties transfer from one end user to another within the original warranty period (as long as the user has the original dated proof of purchase), but not when purchased second hand from a retail outlet.

If you purchase a Line 6 product sold as new from an authorized Line 6 retailer with an online storefront, the standard warranty applies as if it were purchased in a physical store. If you purchase a used unit from an individual on eBay, you do so at your own risk with no warranty offered by Line 6, unless the seller includes a copy of the original receipt to transfer the warranty to you.

The only way to redeem warranty on a used item is to have the original purchase receipt, dated within the product warranty period. So if you fail to get such a receipt, the manufacturers warranty will not be honored.

The Warranty does not cover:

  • Damage from physical abuse such as dropping the unit, impact from hard objects or damage to external components as a result of negligence.
  • Damage due to liquid contamination.
  • Damage resulting from any use other than that it was intended for.
