I purchased the Line-6 because i wanted a versatile sounding amp with all the effects built in. I also own a Mesa-boogie. The "Recto" emulation settings of the Flextone-3 in no way sound anything like the Mesa-boogie it tries to emulate. In fact just about all the heavy distortions of this Line-6 amp are very shrill to the ear and the harmonics are wrong. I replaced the Flextone-3 with a digital VOX amp and now i am happy with sound. The VOX Valvetronix gets the sound right and closely mimics the real Mesa-boogie rectifier sound. The VOX proves that digital distortion can be good.

Fantastic!

By Mr.Most182

from Nebraska

See all my reviews

I have owned this amp for almost three years, and the effects are fantastic. It's loud enough for small venues and the effects are versatile enough for any playing style. I have used it for metal shows, rock shows, jazz concerts, etc. This is a terrific amp for the price. It has never let me down and I would strongly recommend it for anyone who wants quality sound that regularly tours small venues.

Versatility Monster

By VersatilityIsNumber1

from Lancaster PA

See all my reviews

I gig weekly, and this amp is the only constant in my rig. I use 335s, LPs, and a Tele for guitars, and few pedals (a delay and a distortion on occasion). If you are looking for a versatile performer that is built like a tank, this is a winner on all counts. Now for technical stuff...Models are generally good - I prefer the Fender models (65 Twin, Blackface, Bassman, etc) and the Vox models, but the Marshalls (especially the JTM45)and Mesas are good also, just not really my thing. The effects are OK, but if you are really into textures and delays/reverbs, consider some pedals. A warning on overdrive pedals, too - this amp does not really like my Tubescreamer, not sure why. Distortions, though, work like a charm, as do fuzz pedals.I love the fact that I can be cranking along with a dimed 65 Twin, and then blast over to a JTM45, and then end with a Vox chime... bang for the buck is unbelievable. If you only need to have 1 good sound, then this might not be for you. If, like me, you need lots of good tones that are easy to access, then grab this and a Shortboard - you'll be set.A note for the church musicians out there - I lead worship at my church a lot, and play every Sunday morning. This amp is killer for this kind of gig, too - you can control your volume at reasonable stage levels, get a great clean or drive... this amp is even better for us than it is for bar bands.

Nice amp--need to understand it first

By ogibuki

from georgia

I'm mostly a bass player. Primarily studio work--2nd call guy and some production. I play out to supplement my income, usually as a sub. I got a medium-term rhythm guitar gig a few months back with a cover band. The house amp is a flextone III. At first I hated the amp, then the sound guy taught me a few things. I'm amazed at what this thing can do. What do you want? It can give it to you! There's a sharp learning curve here and it takes some work, but it's worth it. Most versatile amp I've ever played!

line 6 flextone III xl

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Too start with this amp is built like a tank but is lighter than any tube amp I've used. The amp takes alittle time to dail in( not the type of amp to pull out of box and go giging that night with)but if you spend the time this amp will do everything listed and more. If your the type who needs more than 4 presets you will what to buy the pedal also the amp isn't very user friendly live without it. The more I learn about this amp the more this amp impresses me. Great job Line 6 for making this tube amp lover a beliver.

Proud owner of an Line 6 Flextone III

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Modeling is definitely Line 6's key feature. I looked at all brands, but nothing compared to the tones you get from this amp. You could use it to play any style of music, and sound good. The short board foot controller is a must. It organizes all of the different amp models and makes it easy to switch between them. This amp has brought my playing to a whole new level.

Sell em all

By SixtyMTP

from 101st Airborne Division, Iraq

Grab all your stompboxes, speaker cabs, heads, and throw them in the dumpster (or send them to me). You don't need your old amp anymore, it's in here. You've gotta have either the FBV or the Shortboard to take full advantage of the Flex's capabilities. The Flex gives you access to 4 presets versus 36 with the board connected. This thing will amaze you and will re-create almost any sound you want. It'll even make you sound better. Like my friends say "You can't play anything, but man you sound good" Word of advice: Save your wah pedal, the on-board system in the Flex is not the best, and can't be tweaked. Built solid, weighs a ton, and looks absolutely beautiful. This amp will change the way you play.

Line 6 Flextone II XL

By BillyBobJohnnyLee

from North Carolina

This is an amp that has SO many settings and possible tonal variations that in amateur hands, it is just as likely to sound bad as good. Also, most people know jack squat about how modeling works and how to tweak these amps. Educate yourself. Read the manual and go on various forums. Learn HOW to use this powerful beast. There IS no better value for money amp out there.

Flextone III, A good Soild Amp

By Merk

from Napa, Ca

The Flextone III has everything you can need as a guitarist, great tone, loud, and quailty FX. The only that I do not like about is that it is hard to change certain aspects of the FX.

Hold onto your teeth.....

By PRScust22&stratGUY

from West Haven, CT

This is an amazing product. The versatility and clarity are impeccable. The engineers at Line 6 did a great job modeling not only the amps, but the cabinets and effects are also right on. My lead guitarist plays through a Marshall JCM800 and I had BETTER tone with my Flextone!I would truly reccomend an FBV or FBV shortboard to really take advantage of this product. They are both a little expensive, but definitely worth it. I actually have the FBV.

Modeling delivers

By lnxguit

from Rochester, MN

I've been interested in modeling amps since they first came out, but the sound wasn't quite good enough - until now. This amp is my favorite amp now. I've actually owned 4 of the amps that were modeled here, and I find the Line6 models even more satisfying than the originals. I've had the amp for a few months now, and have rehearsed and gigged with it. I love it!

The only amp you need

By paul-01x5S

from dover, de

See all my reviews

Loud and warm, definiteley the best solid state amp out there. I've used a spider before and was thrilled about the freedom of having different sounds with out pedals but this thing is more than you'd ever expect. I go from playing surf to punk in no time. Thick tube sound plus the gate control makes for a real professional sound for half the money!

Well worth the extra money

By Mithrander

from Evansville, WI

See all my reviews

I have had this amp for over a year now, and it lacks almost nothing in features. It is extremely versatile and if you wanna recreate as many sounds as authentically as possbile without having to pay big bucks for old half stacks, then Line 6 is the way to go. The only problem I have is that it is a requirement to buy the floorboard if you wanna change between effects/amp models quickly.

In love with this amp!

By RockinItLoud

from Michigan

I've gotta say that this amp will blow you away. While I don't agree that it sounds better than a tube amp, I'll gladly say that this amp blows away all others in terms of flexibility.The variety of amp/cab combos is amazing, the footboard is a great addon, and the effects are right up there with the real thing. Best of all; this baby sounds sweet at it's highest volume, and every bit as good at its lowest.I love having just one amp that I can take to gigs and wail on then take home and practice on without the neighbors even knowing I'm playing.

Best amp ever

By Rocknrollerboy18

from Mahomet IL.

See all my reviews

This amp is awsome. There is nothing it cant do. It completly elemainates the need for most of my stomp boxes the only one I need to use with the amp is my wah. But over all this amp is by far on of the best money can buy i would tell any one to buy one if they were looking for a good amp. Its perfect for practice and it is gig worthy and if you think that it isnt lound enought i have had the cops come to my bands practice to shut us down it rocks.

I love this amp

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I'm oringinally a drummer. I learned basic guitar and mainly bought it so people could come over to jam and have something loud enough. However this amp has made me become so much for serious about playing guitar. You can produce any type of sound with this amp and it will sound great. I like using a bunch of pedals so combined with all the effects it has on the amp plus anything fx pedals you buy you can pruce endless sounds. You program your own sounds and tones to the 4 channels and as soon as your bored or unhappy with one of those setting you can simply change it and its really easy. The band I play in is quite upbeat and dancey (dance-punk/new wave stuff) but at the same time its very spacey and noisey. So this amp is great for experimention as well as anything else. I couldn't be happier with this amp.

Nothing Short of Incredible! History In The Makin

By Mike Joos

from Cleveland

See all my reviews

Incredible! Buy the FBV4 Foot controller; without it the amp is difficult to tweak. Any tone, any amp...its all right there. I play this monster and everyone freaks on how good its sounds as well as loud (150 blazing watts). The bonus on this amp is the midi interface...hook it to your computer and download any tone from any song from any guitar player straight to your amp. WARNING: This Is Not A Toy!! If you are serious and want versatility, durability and great sound, then this is your amp.

Best amplifier ever for me anyhow !

By Riverrat-oPi8P

from Chillicothe, MO

See all my reviews

I've owned my Flextone III 212 over a year now and I will tell the world it is the best amp that I've ever owned, bar none. That takes in the top name tube driven and solid state amps made today or yesterday. Zero problems with it thus far, just plenty of sweet sounds and effects. When I tire of the amp's present sounds, I reset things and it gives me a new line of amps and/or cabs. One warning: IT TAKES TIME TO LEARN HOW TO OPERATE THIS GEM, DON'T BE IN A HURRY !!! Take your time and learn it well, you'll never have to look back again ! My amp is a real gem whether playing single coils or humbuckers, perfect for the studio player. Graveyard quiet at idle. Remember, it'll take you some time to get the hang of it, be patient and do your homework, it'll pay you huge dividends!

Flextone III

By on4US4L03

from McDonough, GA

I bought this amp a little over three weeks ago and am wholly satisfied with it. The only problem I have is that it spends so much effort imitating other amps that it doesnt have a sound to call its own. Overall this beast is worth every penny.

Wall of sound!

By Robert L. Dietz

from Tehachapi, CA

I've been playing since the age of six and have had good and bad amps alike. I even owned a 75th Anniversary White Marshall once. This amp can get any sound you want. You have over 96 presets available and have full conrole over the amp models, pickup models, mods and delays. I purchased the Belringer FCB1010 Midi Foot Board and make full use of all of this amps assets. You can see my setup on the FCB1010 Yahoo Group. If you play in the studio or live you can't lose buying this amp. It stands alone.
