Line 6 DT50 Guitar Amps
Line 6, Inc. announces DT50, its new line of guitar amplifiers.
DT50 guitar amplifiers produce four amp voicings – classic American cleans, chimey and crunchy British tones, and modern high-gain distortion. Each voicing is comprised of a preamp and tone stack fueled by Line 6 HD modeling technology, and paired with dynamic analog circuitry including tube configuration and negative feedback topology courtesy of Reinhold Bogner’s 50-watt EL34 power section.
To produce a classic American amp voicing, for example, DT50 guitar amps engage HD amp modeling technology to configure the preamp and tone stack to produce a gleaming, classic clean tone and supports it by automatically reconfiguring its analog components for a high amount of negative feedback, reproducing the analog circuitry of heralded American amplifiers, Line 6 explains.
Players can also create their own tones with front-panel access to the tube amp’s analog Class A/Class AB and Pentode/Triode switches. Their Class A amp tones can be run in Class AB, and so on. The mixing and matching of HD amp modeling technology with reconfigurable analog circuitry is one of the benefits.
The amps feature a classic, two-channel design. Each channel can be set with a different reconfiguration – Channel A can be Voicing I/Class A/Pentode; Channel B can be Voicing IV/Class AB/Triode – for reconfiguration via the channel switch.
DT50 guitar amplifiers are designed to integrate with new POD HD multi-effect pedals. POD HD multi-effect pedals can add effects, trigger DT50 analog circuit reconfigurations, and more.
All DT50 amplifiers include a spring reverb model on each channel, a serial FX loop with level boost/cut, and a push/pull volume pot that engages a Low Volume Mode, designed for late nights or smaller venues. An output transformer-tapped XLR connection provides a cabinet-simulated direct output, providing a line-level output which dynamically interacts with the DT50 speaker and tubes. Channel switching can be achieved via standard 1/4-inch footswitch, MIDI, or L6 LINK connections.
DT50 112 features a 12-inch custom Celestion® G12H90 speaker; DT50 212 features 12-inch Celestion Vintage 30 and custom Celestion G12H90 speakers; DT50 412 cab is cross-loaded with two 12-inch custom Celestion G12H90s and two 12-inch Celestion Vintage 30s.
