Finally Line 6 got the idea...they cannot make a decent distortion tone. So they went out an found probably the best man who could create one. Reinhold Bogner has been building amps for over 20+ years now and creating some the best amplifiers in the world. Professionals around the world turn to Bogner to get their tonal needs.

Line 6 has done a great job building effects processors but really couldn't figure out how o get the overdrive down. Now that they have Reinhold and his world renown taste for high gain tone the have achieved something until now has never been done before.

SOUNDS

I have used every single POD Line 6 has and several of their amplifiers. This is by far the best outing they have done so far with the accompaniment of effects. The have a new amp that doesn't have effects that is just fantastic.

I like this amp with a Gibson Les Paul or another humbucking style guitar. This amp gets really dirty and chewy in the high gain territory. This amp just lives on the rich thick distorted tone. With the ability to have 128 presets much like a midi foot controller would have...you are virtually owing a whole effects rig and processors with one simple amp.

OVERALL OPINION

If you are someone who needs solid sounding high gain amplifier with the ability to have multiple effects to go with it this is the amp for you. Having tubes coupled with the digital processors makes this thing a beast of a guitar tool.

At new these amps come in at around $900, not a bad price for something that was designed by Reinhold and mixed with the processing power of Line 6.
