Red LED - Select this Amp Model and adjust the tone controls to get crisp, amazing clean tones, great warm jazz tones, and all the high-end shimmer youll need with a generous amount of bottom end.
Green LED - We developed this Amp Model to emulate those late 60s and early 70s clean tones. It started off as an Amp Model based on* a 1973 Hiwatt® Custom 100. We extended the tone control range and tightened up the low end.
Red LED - This Amp Model draws on* our analysis of mid 60s Fender® amps, including the blackface 65 Twin Reverb® and blackface 64 Deluxe Reverb®. We wanted an Amp Model that has that classic glassy high end tone, with some snap and bite.
Green LED - This Amp Model is based on* a number of vintage tweed amps. We evaluated a 53 Fender® tweed Deluxe Reverb®, 58 Fender® tweed Bassman® and a 60 Gibson® Explorer® to create a swingin Rockabilly tone.
Red LED Based on* a mix of a 65 Marshall® JTM-45, a 58 Fender® Bassman®, a 63 Fender® Vibroverb and a Supro®, this Amp Model slides between gritty swamp-infected cleans to syrupy smooth, walloping drive tones.
Green LED - This Amp Model is based on* a fawn Vox® AC-30 amplifier with an updated and expanded tone control circuit. We wanted to capture that early British pop rock tone that the Beatles and the Stones are so well known for.
Red LED - This sound was crafted during our studies* of the '68 Marshall® Plexi 50 Watt. This type of Marshall® amp was used by a number of early metal bands. Crunch provides a wider range of tone control settings than the original Marshall® amp had.
Green LED - This Amp Model is based on* a 68 Marshall® Plexi 100 watt with a few added extras; The combination of a Variac and the jumped input channels creates that infamous brown sound.
Red LED - This Amp Model is based on* the Mesa/Boogie® Dual Rectifier®. Use this Amp Model to get a tight and punchy, high gain Metal sound.
Green LED - This sound was created to be an aggressive high gain Amp Model with a unique Mid control that will sweep though an entire spectrum of tone on one knob. The Mid knob for this Amp Model changes the character of the distortion. When set to minimum, the distortion exhibits Fuzz pedal characteristics. When the Mid is set to noon, it mimics the creamy modern high gain amp tones. And when the Mid knob is turned up to max, its very much reminiscent of that Class A sound.
Red LED - This model is our "dialed in for shredding" version based on* the Mesa/Boogie® Dual Rectifier® red channel. It combines the intensity and impact of Metal Red, but delivers more midrange and teeth for that bone-crushing, brain piercing insane grind.
Green LED - Our goal with Insane was to provide you with as much input gain distortion as possible short of complete meltdown. You get an obscene helping of distortion, while still retaining tonal definition and character.
A great amp isnt the only part of a great guitar sound. With Smart Control FX, an exclusive Line 6 feature that automatically dials in different effect parameters, you spend more time playing and less time tweaking. Simply find the effect that you want, turn the knob to your desired intensity, and youre done. You can even use multiple effects at the same if you wanna get really crazy.
Effects Models (Up to 3 effects simultaneous) : Phaser, Chorus/Flanger, Tremolo, Sweep Echo, Tape Echo, and Reverb.
