iamqman's review"Better than the Spider"

Line 6 Flextone III Plus
Line 6 is a money making outfit. They have successfully taken over the amp modeling world. They are a great company and make some fantastic products. I just cannot get into this amp modeling world.

I have played almost every type of unit that has come out by Line 6 and i always like their stompbox effects and there PODs for effects purposes but their amp modeling is just terrible. It is unnatural and just purely processed sounds. You cannot make a digital preset sound like a Bogner XTC or Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier. No amount of processing power can recreate those tones. It simply cannot be done.


Flextone III Plus features:

* 32 Vetta-based amp models
* 12 Effects based on Line 6's award-winning stomp box modelers
* 16 Mix 'n' Match Speaker Cab options
* Award-winning Point-to-Point modeling technology
* 1x12 touring quality cabinet
* Powerful 150-watt stereo power amp
* 4 programmable amp channel memories
* Stereo XLR direct outputs
* MIDI compatibility allowing access to deep editing and the Tone Transfer library


This amp is one that has the power and versatility of the POD series units but in an amp form. You get basically all that the POD has but you can blast it through their speaker combo.

The only amp models that I like in this batch are the Soldano, Bogner, and Vox amps. The other ones sound thinner and metallic sounding. The vox amps can take effects well and so the tone is a little bit more tolerated. The Soldano and Bogner have so much gain that is kind of masks that you are playing a digital amp. You can't dial the processing out of it but this is a little bit more audibly pleasing. And of course the Mesa Boogies are thicker sounding but still thin in comparison to a real Dual or Triple Rectifier.


These amps have been discontinued and replaced by the Bogner series I believe or maybe the spider. Either way you have to go the used market route to get this amp. If you must own a modeling amp then I would looking into the Peavey series amps. They model their own amps and they sounds decent for digital. If you want all the different amp makers in one then this is the amp for that. You can find these for about $300 in the classifieds somewhere if you want. However, I'd go with the Bogner model if it were me.

Line 6 Flextone III Plus
- Amp combo modlisation.
- 2 x 75 Watts + Custom Celestion Cabinet Loudspeaker output supplmentaire.
- Connection ultra complte:
XLR microphone jack with simulation of excellent quality (not the level knob indpendant to record without playing the baffle), between MIDI output to safeguard the memory + updates, RJ45 pdalier for Line 6, Loop in / out effect of the insert can be activated via pdalier.
- Pltor high quality effects (tremolo, delay, compression, chorus, Univibe, phaser, noise gate, reverb, rotary, etc. ...). Modlisation old pedals perfectly couraging all 36 Fully programmable memory!


- In a childish simplicity sounds dja factory are of good quality and it is very simple to find the sound for you in a few rounds of pots. Manuel trs clear and conization. Also on the site of Line 6 can be found all sounds made where it is necessary to sort all this is but child's play via the south is a rgal.


- I personally do rock plutt typ English, but, and this is the advantage of this amp, you can switch between the US british sound in a snap.
- I play with a Fender Stratocaster Mex Active and US Jazzmaster 62 '.
- I use a bunch of possibilities of the amp on diffrent component of my group of warm clear sound with a tremolo old school too serious a distortion through the Clean slamming funky chorus solo , etc ... and you just spend a minimum of time to record programs, personal I did by going rpt "with some modifications to my house.


I use it for 2 years, and what I like most about this amp is its ability to move from its other compltement diffrent and excellent quality in a pressure p Dali. The only small BMOL is that you push a little bit to really give it everything serious. But at the same time we achte not an amp to play one!
I try ps sickness MODEL lights before but I think you get to these MODELS trs certainly sound good but one sound. To get this versatility would have required me to pay a dozen pedals and I transplant three legs.
Relative price level qulit bah do the math if you were to buy just any effects ... I train on this amp scnes from caf concert at the Festival of 100 people outdoors with 2,000 people, and it sounds to say anything. The evidence I jou with a lot of fans of all lamps that have all told me the end of our concerts they have t his bluff by our (the other scratch my group plays also on Line6 Duoverb MODEL).
I would do if this choice? Obviously YES.
Besides, I buy the tatter MODEL 2 body Line 6.

Line 6 Flextone III Plus
Amp modlisation
interest of this model: XLR
see site builder


Apartment use only, seems to be a IDAL.
rglages the factory are playable but not the style of my research. After a few rglages it is easy to find a more suited his character. Similarly as in several styles of what was fun and find his crdible, even if one still has the moves away Ralite (this is normal ... even qd )
amplifiers can be shuffled with various speakers (combo - 2 * 12 * OU4 12)


See above
jou with Ibanez RBM NT2 team of EMG
search for lead sounds and powerful prcis with a lot of distortion, easy to find!
The clean sounds are INTERESTED, prcis and slam shut. I have not explored all the sounds and all the possibilities.
The effects are very easy argler, rather intuitive. a change of some old equipment gnration very prcis ds rglages but sometimes more like a factory than a gas pramp or effect.
Saturations are some really vile and hurt the ears, and they are "Dual Rectifier" as a designation for model ...


Use for a week.
What I like: easy variation on rglages and sounds, lots of possibilities and sounds often of good quality.
What I like least: better to run the ear and look on the sound we want to achieve as sometimes modlisations are hazardous!
I also possde a Flextone 2 (I'm going to sell might be interested if a qq'un!) Actually quite a different model, the Flextone 3 is more complete.
Report qualitprix very good especially secondhand (400 for mine), I think nine is theft ... I lower the average for a six!

Page at Line6 ( ) .


- The configuration is it simple?
No. But after the first few months and catch heads is happiness. The sound MRIT.

- Gets it easy to sound good?
Yes, provided you understand the logic and the interactions of each knob, of a Regency option. And have a proper guitar.

Yes the manual is clear.
No it is not enough. But at least it can be a quick ide the potential of the same animal prior to use Line6 Edit.


- Is it your style of music?
Yes, it is my musical styles perfectly. When one moves a little nothing is impossible.

Right now I do fuel with a Fernandes LE-2 Custom. Anything.
If in fact: ouch!

All and even more. And besides its j'obiens MON. Amazing is not it?

- What are the sounds you prfrez, you dtest?
All the sounds I like, or I delete the program and I one I like.
It is not beautiful?


I will our answer all questions in one classic piece.

For the record: I have long jou on his little ERRF Flextone3 the Standard.
Then one day, BTIS and curiosities I DCID to sell it. It was a standard idiocy on my part. Of all the amps I jou later could not hold a candle to this little monster. So you can imagine, my lass amplmi IDAL's research, I ended up buying one! What rpond the issue with the exprience, you do again this choice? Yes, I have redone this choice and I do not regret it.

Why selling it?
A moment of garement absurd belief that the grass is always greener on the neighbor, the stuff that was not is better than the one we a. This is inept and lost a lot of time and sometimes even money.

I will tell you the truth: I sold my Flex3 about 400 euros in nine state there is a little over a year. For me c'tait correct, as I needed, and this should be the acqureur good too, otherwise he would not have bought ... And I took a Flex3Plus with Shortboard for much less, I pay below the argus of Flex3 Standard. I must say that my MODEL VCU has, it has some traces: this makes it even more vintage-style!

As my card MIDI HS and I expect the new, I toy with the "presets" of Flex3 +, I turn the knobs ... and does my Custom Fernandes LE-2 ( ) , an excellent copy of Start. The sound is l: flt of the fat, super clean the lens (see clinic) to duly saturation, through all the minute variations. It Ragit beautifully to the demands of the guitar sound, making brilliantly all the nuances of my playing trs improved. This is what we identify a good couple amp / guitar: when the slightest touch is palpable.

It vritable a playmate, and a weapon to register thanks to the XLR dowries Systm AIR, really effective.

I'm not going to tell jokes: it is not the ultimate amp.
But of all those I had and it is the only jou I wanted to resume all costs.
That should tell you about.

The F3 + vritable isa good tool. Those whose people are proud. The modlisation? So what!
Yes, it's numrique, but it sounds the guy and he was in the belly. A real dynamic, flexible and a real weight yet tolrable. Then the lights ... yeah, one day, but just to show off because honntement I'm not sure to find all as effective points of view with loupiotte. That the purists will forgive me or go to cook an egg.

If you hsitez offer you this toy, be sure it's worth it. But you must tame the bte, spend hours, months and you will immediately find every day.
We must have a minimum achievement to understand its potential.

There are those who want the stuff, and there are those who want their sounds. Choose your side and do not fall into the pins.

I do not want to get into a game rating, I know too many animals for me to judge him. To be completely impartial, so I decline to note.
