Line 6 introduced the modeling amp to the masses way back in 1998 with the release of the original POD, an affordable desktop unit featuring a variety of amp, effect and speaker cabinet models to provide guitarists with instant access to numerous virtual rigs.

Over the next 15 years, Line 6 greatly expanded the POD universe with various desktop, rackmount and floor units and even the Mobile POD iOS app.
