This amp is built tough and sounds pretty ok...
It's loud and simple to use...The presets blow but the sounds are the reason, not the presets...The FX are wet and cheap sounding....Sorry Line 6, I love most of your stuff but this one was a letdown....It just sounded like a POD through a tube power amp...Not good...Gotta get that POD out!
It's not even a good practice amp as it's loud and tubes like to be pushed...This whole amp is pretty much a great idea but junk product...
Single coils were so ice-picky that it couldn't be dialed out without removing the entire top end...The lows are good and deep but not "strong" sounding...They're more resonant than punchy....
The presets can't save the bad tone from the preamps...They are all bad...It can be tolerable in a few settings but never good...
The EQ is ok as there is no saving the tone...The whole amp needs a makeover- the EQ can't fix it...
I tried many many amps....I own many many amps...I really wanted this to replace the fleet...But...
Not even close....I flipped it within a week....
