I bought the Vetta Head and cab at guitar center during the last green tag sale. The cab was $600, and i got the head for $1000. I bought it because of all teh built in effects and i needed a new amp.
It has more effects than i know waht to do with it. It sounds beutiful and makes you feel a hundred times better at guitar. It has plenty of power, and it looks cooler than any otehr half stack. It makes you want to pick your guitar and never put it down.
There is very little i dont like about it. I dont like the fact the i dont own the floor board to control it with my feet yet, but i will get that soon. One downfall maybe that you have to put of the volume a considerable amount for the effects to come out to their fullest, so it doesnt sound that perfect when you are playing late at night with the volume low, but it still sounds great.
It seems to be made very well. Its heavy, stirdy, solid, and feel unbreakable. The only part that you want to be careful about are the small led screens that tell you the info and setting. It would suck if you cracked one and had a big black spot, but besides that I think its unbreakable.
If you need a new amp, but a line 6 vetta. They are more fun than anything i have ever played on, on you will get a lot better becasue it will make you want to play more and more.
I bought my Vetta Head at Sam Ash on my Sam Ash credit card. Mainly because I was looking for the sound that I wasn't getting through the other amps that I had. I wanted to be able to create whatever sounds I wanted, and I am in a band that plays all styles of music from acoustic to metal to punk to funk. And of course I bought it because (SA) was having their 15 months No Payment No Interest, which is a Rockin' deal! I paid $1599.00 for the head and $399.00 for the foot pedal.
It is THEE greatest piece of equipment ever created in the music world. I love the versatility, being able to use two amps at once is great but whats even greater is having the best amps ever created in the Vetta, to use at my own will! WOW, you talk about a "Make A Person Dream" machine, its the Vetta. You can tell the guitarists in the crowd because of the puddle of drewl in front of them.
The only thing that I dont like about this system, is that it is very tempermental in extreme weather. I really cant complain too much about this tho, cuz every amp does the same thing!
It's made to be taken care of, like a computer. It's not quite a "Peavey" in ruggedness, but the sound of this machine is truly amazing! Its definitely a high tech look, lots of lights...and when you turn the amp on the floorboard looks like Christmas lights, "Pretty!"
This is the "Holy Grail" of all amps, and the Vetta really does go up to "11". Its loud, versatile, in-expensive (compared to buying even 1/10th of the amps in it), upgradable :O), constant tweaking (which for some is bad, but it lets me creat My own sound not someone elses), and last but not least its limitless possibilities makes this amp irresistable!
This amp is soooooooo deep, it's not even funny. It can be made to sound like nearly any guitar-type sound one can think of. Long effects chains with 4 different delays, or quirky synthesizery 70s music, or just good ol' hard rock solos - this amp can do it all. The manual is very clear at explaining all the functionality of the amp, and while the amp is very easy to figure out (not a terribly steep learning curve), I'd still recommend downloading the manual from Line 6's website if you don't get one with your purchase. If you don't have a Floorboard pedal for the amp, this is a requirement for full enjoyment of the Vetta. There are so many fun things to do with this amp!
This excels in both quantity and quality. There are 80 amp models to be used, and all of them are great sounding for the style. Metal tones sound great for metal, jazz for jazz, etc. There's not a stinker in the whole bunch. The effects are out of this world as well! I liked to make long delay chains and create ambient textures ala Robert Fripp.
This amp is great, especially for the price they can be acquired for now. It weighs a lot for what it is, and some of them have strange durability issues - a friend of mine had a Vetta that would randomly change volume a bit during use, but mine never did that. Cosmetically, this thing looks very stupid - I did some cosmetic mods so it wouldn't look so cartoony and cheesy. But it still is neat to look over and see all the lights blinking as if one was controlling a spaceship! Overall, this is a good buy, but test thoroughly before purchase to ensure not getting a stinker with volume issues.
