    So, used the HD500 to demonstrate sound at my daughter's school today. They were covering echo, so I used the digital delay model with the expression pedal to control the time, then I used the digital reverb with the expression pedal to control decay, so I could show them what a longer and longer echo sounded like and also a bigger more reflective room.

    And, for the finale, got to crank it up and play a little Van Halen and AC/DC!

    I have to do something similar soon! I think I'll use my HD 500 for that. Thanks for the idea!

    I will be doing an electric guitar demo soon for elementary school music classes -- witht he same setup I was wondering if I could sneak a little VH in there as well.

    That's great!
    I had a mental image of another thread that might not have gone so well
    "I used the Marshall JMP100 and double 4x12 cabs to Demonstrate Sound to Daughter's 3rd Grade Class"

    I thought they might ask about the global eq, but nope, they didn't.... I told them I'd be back when firmware 2.0 came out..

    HAH, just kidding Line6! The teachers thought it was a great teaching tool!
