Red LED- Select this amp model and adjust the tone controls to get crisp, amazing clean tones, great warm jazz tones, and all the high-end shimmer you’ll need with a generous amount of bottom end.
Green LED- Line 6 developed this amp model to emulate those late 60’s and early 70’s clean tones. It started off as an amp model based on a 1973 Hiwatt Custom 100. Line 6 extended the tone control range and tightened up the low end.
Red LED- This amp model draws on our analysis of mid 60’s Fender amps, including blackface ’65 Twin Reverb and blackface ’64 Deluxe Reverb. It features a classic glassy high end tone with some snap and bite.
Green LED- This amp model is based on a number of vintage tweed amps. Line 6 evaluated a ’53 Fender tweed Deluxe Reverb, ’58 Fender tweed Bassman and a ’60 Gibson Explorer to create a swingin’ Rockabilly tone.
Red LED- Based on a mix of a ’65 Marshall JTM-45, a ’58 Fender Bassman, a ’63 Fender Vibroverb and a Supro so it slides between gritty swamp-infected cleans to syrupy smooth, walloping drive tones.
Green LED- Based on a fawn Vox AC30 amplifier with an updated and expanded tone control circuit. Line 6 wanted to capture that early British pop rock tone that the Beatles and the Stones are so well known for.
Red LED- A sound crafted during Line 6 studies of the ’68 Marshall Plexi 50 watt which was used by a number of early metal bands. Crunch provides a wider range of tone control settings than the original Marshall amp.
Green LED- Based on a ’68 Marshall Plexi 100 watt with a few added extras: the combination of a Variac and the jumped input channels creates that infamous brown sound.
Red LED- An amp model based on the Mesa/Boogie Dual Rectifier which produces a tight and punchy, high gain Metal sound.
Green LED- This sound was created to be an aggressive high gain amp model with a unique mid control that will sweep through an entire spectrum of tone on one knob. The Mid knob for this amp model changes the character of the distortion. When set to minimum, the distortion exhibits Fuzz pedal characteristics. When it is set to noon, it mimics the creamy modern high gain amp tones. And when it is turned up to Max, it’s very much reminiscent of that Class A sound.
Red LED- An amp model dialed in for shredding based on the Mesa/Boogie Dual Rectifier red channel. It combines the intensity and impact of Metal Red but delivers more midrange and teeth for that bone-crushing, brain piercing insane grind.
Green LED- Line 6 had a goal in mind to provide you with as much input gain distortion as possible short of complete meltdown. You get an obscene helping of distortion while still retaining tonal definition and character.
A great amp isn’t the only part of a great guitar sound. With Smart Control FX, an exclusive Line 6 feature that automatically dials in different effect parameters, you spend more time playing and less time tweaking. Simply find the effect that you want, turn the knob to your desired intensity, and you’re done. You can even use multiple effects at the same if you wanna get really crazy.
