etm1109's review"Duoverb - Hidden Gem"

Line 6 Duoverb
I consider myself more of a 70s guitar player in the sense I play a lot of styles like Rush, Led Zeppelin, Steely Dan, etc. So my comments about this product may not be as pertinent to people playing heavier music.

I know this is an amplifier most people will love or hate. I wanted to approach a few features about this amp that I really like. Because the amplifier supports two amps at the same time, I have found a unique feature of the amp if you have a Line 6 pedal is the ability to switch between the two amps on the pedalboard itself. That means you can program each slot with two amps and flip between them. This really doubles the stored combinations of amps and allows you to toggle between a cleaner tone and a heavier tone for louder passages or leads.

The other interesting thing I like is the output features. By plugging in a headphone, this turns off the speaker. With the XLR Balanced outputs, I can record directly to a console DAW and that is a nice touch.

Regarding the sounds. Like a lot of people, I play a lot of styles and this is where this amp shines. Having the ability to get a nice early 60s Beatles tone or a heavy tone is great. I've played tube amps and owned them over the years and I also own a Peavey Classic 50 4/10. I really have compared the tonal quality of the Duoverb and the Peavey and I find the Duoverb holds it's own with the Classic 50 though I would agree there are some tones the Peavey seems to nail a little better at louder volumes. Being the Peavey has 4-10s and I use a lot of hollow/semi-hollow body guitars, I believe the cabinet and tube is responsible for that.

Overall, for $200 this is a great amp even for beginners and has some interesting features that shouldn't be overlooked. If it broke or were stolen, I'd get another one. If I win the lottery, I'd probably buy a couple of backups. I also own the Flex III which is nice, but having the ability to mix two amps does present a lot of interesting tones one doesn't usually find in an amplifier.

MGR/MOUMOU's review"Line 6 Duoverb 2x12 Combo"

Line 6 Duoverb
i went to a guitar center looking for a nice amp for proffesional use and great price. the salesman person recommanded it .i took his words for granted and bought it for 499$

having all these amps at a flick of a finger is a big advantage if you are creative. i like the VOX AC-30 model my favorite very very warm vintage sound, the plexi lead is also sharp with some metal zone boss distortion pedal. just these two models are around 3000$ at least. what i like the most is that you can create your own sound by mixing two amp models but it take alot of time. i'm not going to use all the amp models of course but i have them if needed.

to make it clear and not confuse everybody, i'm fully satisfied with this amp. however i red some comments stating that this amp is nothing but a cardboard sound. alot of people did not understand this amp because it offers many features. and if you expect the amp to give you automatically a perfect sound that you like without any effort, you might expect the amp to strum your guitar instead of your fingers also. every amp model has its own setting otherwise you just bought a line 6 duoverb cardboard simulator.

with 2 12" celstion speakers it is loud. no need for extention cabs. the quality of the amps are accurate. i don't care about the look if it is nice or not because it is not a crucial parameter. i have the sound that i wanted.

if you are lazy rocker this is not your amp. go get the amp model that you want and do not bother because the line 6 duoverb will drive you nuts in couple weeks. if you want to be unique this is your amp.

MGR/Guitarman76's review"Line 6 Duoverb 2x12 Combo"

Line 6 Duoverb
Bought this amp in Seattle from a former Line 6 rep after hearing about it. I have no complaints whatsoever. Line 6 nailed the amp models with this one. Great tone, easy to use controls. A great bare-bones amp for the guy who likes to keep it simple, yet have the power to totally change his amp sound at his fingertips without much tweaking.

I like the ease of use features, the amp models are as close as you can get, being able to combine two amps at once or split them between cabs, nice looking cabinet, incredible sound.

Needs casters but thats it.

Excellent construction and quality.

Line 6 Duoverb combo is definately a great addition to any guitarists collection. The amp models are accurate, its tone is incredible, and you can get tone at any volume. Its also plenty loud and you can run an extension cab with it to really shake up your neighborhood!

sylbenima2's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Very good amp transistors"

Line 6 Duoverb
- 100 watt combo models. Very powerful.
- 16 amp models (Fender, Marshall, Vox, Soldano, Boogie, Buddah, Hiwatt, Roland JC120, etc.)
- Basically, this is the preamps Vetta without effects.
- Effects (still): wah and reverb.
- Fully stereo amplifier. Independent settings right and left. Very helpful and the amp sounds even better when the sources are mixed.
- 36 channels.
- For each channel there are two times the following settings (right and left): Amp, drive, trble, mid, bass, presence, vol, reverb + master general flight.
- Everything is configurable via midi
- Comprehensive Connectivity: Stereo loop series (inputs and outputs), 2 XLR outputs (true stereo I tell you) switch with ground / lift, midi in / out / thru, RJ45 socket for Line6 pedals that I never used (I work at noon).
- Simulation hp also I use some.
- 2 Celestion Vintage 30 hp

UTILIZATION

Setup is simple, even if the settings are numerous. Basically, it works like all the amps we known since forever, but in stereo. Quickly the sound is desired is obtained.
Very good manual that details the amp models. Very good MIDI menu.

SOUNDS

The sounds of Duoverb are very good, much better than any other amp brand. Include input sounds emulated amps. But it is especially a good amp that meets the sound of the guitar. The clean sounds have a great dynamic and distos are singing. The amp is excellent on crunches and distos blues, rock or fusion, perhaps less convincing for metal, but cash fine pedals.

OVERALL OPINION

Here's a perfect amp (that's more than 10 I played it), powerful, warm and extensive connectivity.

The great advantage of Duoverb is that it provides a wide range of sounds managed by an excellent preamp, and manage it all by noon, all served by two discs flawlessly.

Amp too little known.
