The Line 6 Flextone III Plus Guitar Amplifier delivers the power of Line 6 modeling technology with the simplicity of a classic amp.
The Flextone III gets its incredible amp tones from the flagship Line 6 Vetta series, effects adapted from the award-winning MM4 and DL4 stomp box modelers, 16 classic Reverb types, and their exclusive A.I.R. II direct recording technology.
Amp models are based on classic amps from a 1953 Deluxe to a 2002 Triple Rectifier - 32 models in all. Highlights include the JC120, Cornford, Chieftain and Extacy. Cabinet & effect models include an equally wide range of sounds. And, you can freely mix & match the cabinet & amp models. All this versatility & phenomenal tone, plus a tour-quality cabinet, simple knob controls, and 4 programmable channels make the Flextone III a serious new amp line that you gotta play to believe. Dimensions: 24 x 18 x 11 inches.
Amps & Cabs
Flextone III's soul is its remarkable collection of Amp and Cabinet models—resulting from Line 6's meticulous study of a dream collection of vintage and modern amplifiers and cabinets. Flextone III features 32 groundbreaking amp models built from the same amp technology found in their flagship Vetta amplifier. They've even added all new models based on* a 1963 Fender Vibroverb, Bogner Extacy, Cornford mk50h, and a 1985 Marshall Silver Jubilee.
Against their accountant's better judgment, Line 6 took the liberty of adapting a bunch of great stomp box models from their MM4 Modulation Modeler and DL4 Delay Modeler pedals, and stuffed them all into your Flextone III. You'll get instant access to models based on* the Maestro EP-1 Echoplex, Roland Space Echo, Electro-Harmonix Deluxe Memory Man, MXR Phase 90, Uni-Vibe, and Leslie 145. There's even a dedicated Compressor and Gate. And it doesn’t stop there. They've even added 16 classic reverb types ranging from Plate and Chamber to vintage Spring.

Are the FX taken from the stomp modelers?
The premium Effects are taken from PODXT. They include the Echoplex, Space Echo, Line 6 Sweep Echo, Uni-Vibe, Phase 90 and others.
Is it loud?
The Flextone III uses an all new power amp developed for Vetta, and refined for Duoverb. This new amp has a whole lot more headroom, (thanks to a much bigger transformer) for improved dynamic response, and models the way a tube power amp interacts with a speaker cabinet. Combined you get a punchier, more organic and toneful experience.
Any new amp models?
Oh yeah. Check out new models based on* the Marshall Silver Jubilee head, Cornford mk50h, '63 Fender Tweed Vibroverb, and Marshall TSL-2000.
Does it jive w/ the old Floorboard and FB4?
Sorry, new FBV and FBV Shortboard only.
Can I transfer my Flex II/Pod 2.0 sounds to it?
That's in the works, but not for now. A new Line 6 Tone Transfer site should be available very soon.
What are the dimensions of the Flextone III amps?
Flextone III, Plus, and Cab: 24" x 18" x 11"
Flextone III XL: 29" x 21" x 11"
