I am a hardcore tube amp enthusiast and have never really used anything else. There used to be no comparison between solid state amps and tube amps even with the advent of digital modeling. In the last few years though the whole modeling thing has gotten to a point where the amps actually sound good. If you know what I'm talking about there is a "glassy" sound that tube amps produce when they distort. This amp has that sound. the Fender models sound like Fenders, The Marshalls sound like Marshalls and so on. Personally, I bought it for the versatility which is the amps strongest point in my opinion.
First off, if you want to buy this amp because of the cool amplifier simulations, you're going to be seriously disappointed. They're absolutely no good. However, overall this amp is awesome. I don't really use too many of the effects on it, but this amp really does have good flange, chorus and overdrive. The clean channel is also super clean, even at high volumes. This thing is really sweet. However, I would not buy the Flextone with 1 12" speaker because it's just not loud enough. Spend the extra $100 and buy the 2X12. You won't regret it. I would also recommend buying the FBV Express foot pedal with it, so you can change the channels with your foot.
I was debating on either the XL or the PLUS i didnt think that the plus could out blast the drummers. When i plugged it in i was amazed that it didnt overdrive when on 10 it was still clear yet VERY VERY LOUD. many differnt settings on this amp and im still learning them. If your starting out a band and want some KICK this is the one for you!
Amazing tone: You can get any sound in the world out of this amp. Whether you're into Blues, Jazz, Rock, Metal, this amp has it all. I play it with both a Fender American SRV Strat and an Ibanez Artstar Jazz Guitar and it is amazing. The only pedal I use is a wah, and I recently got a vintage MXR Phase 90 and a Metal Zone, but just because it was a good deal. The built-in effects are perfectly made. I compared the Blackface Deluxe amp model of the Flextone with a Blues Junior, and let me tell you, I could not tell the difference in warmth between the twop tube sounds. PERFECT AMP.
I recently purchased this amp, and already had the shortboard,which will be needed to use the full potential of this amp,not to mention ease of use at a gig. I am amazed how much better this sounds then the spiderII I own, but there is a woof when using the plexi setting with most 4x12 cab models. I was able to tweak it to minimize,as with all the settings,they are a jump in point. Set it up the way you want, and this is a great little combo. I have tried with an external cab ,and when you unleash both parts of the stereo amp,it cranks!I do not care for the controls not being front panel, but with the pedal,once it's set up you don't have to do to much at the amp.Most bang for the buck ,for a modeling amp. gotta go tubes to get better!
As usual, Line 6 gets nearly all the way there. But not quite. It sounds wonderful and is very loud. However, you need the foot controller to get the most out of it. You also will need a computer midi hookup to really edit your tone. Tough to do at the gig. There are also some bothersome design problems with power cord placement. It's in the way if you use an amp stand. Having said all that, it sounds great direct into the FOH. It really sounds mic'ed. And if you need a ton of different tones, this amp is for you. I'll let ya know if it konks out on me like my AX212 did. Fingers crossed.
This is a great amp, it has a bunch of models 6 effects and 6 kinds of delay, that's hundreds of dollars in pedals. Any tone can be gotten from heavy metal to blues from the cab modeling. I got mine about 8 months ago and the thing is still blasting, and like other SS it doesnt fuzz out at max volume.
The plain and simple key to this amp is replace the stock speaker with an Eminence Red Coat Private Jack and add compressor or tube preamp in the effects loop and you will have the best sounding performance / Practice amp you can buy at this price. You also get the full gamut of effects and modeling capabilities. Don't be fooled by technology deficient tube junkies. In a blind folded test 90% would pick the Flextone hands down.
I am a die hard valve(tube) guy, however I have to confess that I just traded my Boogie Mark IV head for the new Flextone III. What sold me was the accuracy of the modeling for the Plexi 100, I have owned and played many a gig with the Marshall 100 and the 45 too. The flextone is really good with the added advantage of saving to a memory location. No more pulling pots and fiddling with the tone controls of the Boogie. I like this amp, I think it will stand up to road abuse too. Only disadvantage is you have to have the Floor controller, I got the short board version.
A guitarist for 30 years, it is rare when new equipment can inspire new directions in my playing, but the combination of the Flextone III and the FBV shortboard has opened up a new world of quality tonal variety for me. The dramatically different sounds that this amp emits gives way to a chamelion-like effect in my phrasing and approach all at the same time. I am encouraged by the different tones and the way my playing changes as a result of the settings.One can spend a fortune on a room full of great sounding amplifiers, and there are so many out there, but why bother when the Flextone III offers so much versatility and at a price that won't break the bank:way to go Line 6!
