I've been playing through this amp for about three months now, and while I loved the sound at first, the more I play with it, the less enamored I've become. They say it's 300 watts, but I've played through 100-watt combos that sounded stronger. Because of the 15" woofer, some of the lower notes tend to be overly boomy versus the higher notes, throwing off the quality of the tone.With the exception of a small amount of chorus, the rest of the effects are pretty useless. The amp models are nice though. Not on par with the real life counterparts, but then, I wasn't expecting them to be for this price. A nice imitation job though. Ignore the synth model. It's pure novelty and the tracking is pretty lousy.I've recently had an issue with cable connectors in the head unit coming loose, rendering the unit unplayable. I tried to get in touch with support online, but it appears that the only way that Line 6 provides support online is via their forums. This is inexcusable to me, since there is no way to track who actually is helping you. It's like they hope that other will do their job for them.One other thing I should mention: This thing weighs a ton. It's a good thing I'm a powerlifter, I have no tr...wait, I'm no powerlifter. No wonder my back's killing me. Get come castors for this thing, pronto.Overall, pretty darn good for a practice amp. I currently do use it for gigs, although ever since the cable connectors issue, I'm a little apprehensive about using this in live applications moving forward. I'm thinking about picking up a Genz Benz Shuttle 6.0 and Neox 2101T. I know it's not fair to compare that to this amp, they're in completely different classes, but I will say that in this case you get what you pay for. I did expect a little more from the LD...I've been playing through a Spider 3 for a while and love it. I figured the quality of the product would be the same, but I guess it's going to take a little longer for Line 6 to be as good at bass products as they are with the guitar.

I bought this amp on and was sorely disappointed. I wanted a loud combo so I didn't have to lug my SWR big rig. First thing that turned me off was the Weight. I live upstairs and this thing weighs as much as my SWR Goliath 3!!!Sheesh, If I wanted something this heavy I'd a bought another Goliath 3! However what really turned me off was the tone. It sounded good on the Line 6 website. I fished out the default settings for starters and plugged in my Fender U.S. DLX Jazz and spent the whole time trying to find one good sound. This amp assimilated my bass! Robbing it of its tonal character! At best it sounded Loud and Muddy. My bass has a powerful 18volt pre-amp, but not that you'd notice it!When I changed the amp models the volume level dropped big time. I had to keep resetting it. I'm shocked actually, because I love the Line 6 Bass PodXT. I can't record without it. The LD300 is a good Idea but tone is gobbled up with way too much processing. It works for some people, but not me.

First, it's a heavy duty built cab, but not as heavy as my Ampeg 8 X 10 cab, so it travels out a lot easier. You can use this for practice or for the stage. With Line6 using only one 15" driver for this amp, it really impressed me. The lows are clean. The high frequency horn covers all the highs you need and if you get it up off the floor, (using a dummy cab for show) the highs can fill a room. The 300 watt power rating feels like more when you push this amp. The pro-grade compressor really tames my active electronics and gives plenty of headroom for my added in-line accessories. I only use an EQ and a (tube preamp) just to warm up the mids a little. This amp is very clean in the clean setting, so those are the only effects I need with this amp. I love the built-in tuner and the memory channel let's you (save) your personally created sound to memory. The direct out gets you into the house PA with ease. If you want an amp and cab combo with all the bells and whistles, you can't go wrong with this amp. For my money, I'm very happy with this Line6 amp-combo.
I've had this for over a year now and have to say I'm pretty pleased. The synth sucks horribly so if that's what your into, this isn't for you. Some people gripe about the weight but I was used to hauling around way heavier (and way more) stuff than this so I consider it pretty light. Also, it has a stricyl digital amp so you're not going to get that "warm" sound that you might expect from some other amps. Other than that, this thing is sturdy (trust me), has easy-2-use controls, pretty cool features (savable channels, effects, etc.) and a decent price tag. Overall, totally worth the minor comprimise in sound for the awesome portability and way-easy set up.
I must say at first I was a little disappointed when I first bought this amp. I didn't feel like I was getting the right tone, and it wasn't balanced. However I recently bought a Warwick corvette and ran it through a Sansamp bass driver. WOW!! This little amp kills. I'm glad I chose this over the BA 115. I personally like the ROCK setting with the DEEP feature.
This is truly a great sounding amp for all styles of music. I would sit in front of my amp for hours on end just trying out all the different effects and sound combinations on it. Must say i was really taken by the synth. Sounds great! Its got some weight to it so lugging it around by the handles gets annoying at times. I run a schecter c-4xxx with three boss pedals (bass limiter enhancer, overdrive, equalizer) and i can get any sound i can think of. Good for medium sized venues and close quarters outdoors.
I just joined a banned a few months ago, and needed an amp that would be loud enough that I wouldn't have to go through the PA system. I bought a Fender bassman 150, which don't get me wrong is a pretty good amp, but volume wise is no match for a Marshall JCM 2000, wich is what the guitar players use. So I took the amp back and got my LD 300 pro combo and was blown away. What bassist wouldn't want this amp. Its a very high quality amp with effects that will entertain you all day. This amp gets the job done period. I have to admit it was a little over my budget, but after playing it I had no regrets. So fellow bass guitarists, do not hesitate, buy this amp. You will be satisfied.
This amp produces the best sound for the price. The only drawback is the lack of wheels (I also use a skateboard to transport). The Rock bass sounds the best and mimicks the AMPEG. Be sure and try out all the different sounds in the LINE 6 manual. Super Bass is the one I use.
Wow. Ran sound last night with a loud rock cover band in a 200 person club. This amp sounded fantastic using the on board DI, far better than other amps. And the bass player fit on the stage with the small cab instead of the usual crunch of the 4x10 box and heavy head. Plenty loud with the 1x12 as well very clear and punchy.
I've owned this amp for 3 years and I love it. I play mostly Jazz, Punk, Metal, and Rock, and it sounds amazing with every bass I play and can blow anyone else out of the studio. People say it's heavy, but I'm not that strong and never had a problem carrying it daily. The controls and linking ablities make it useful for any style and it's kept it's awesome sound quality since I've had it. One drawback: no casters (I use a skateboard). Everything else about this amp is fantastic.
A good friend of mine got this amp as a birthday present. Since he's in a band he needed a big amp with versatile features. Needless to say this amp is awesome. When ever I go see him, I plug and I am blown away. It's loud, but warm, and the effects are really cool. I like to mess around with the synth feature myself. Only thing is, it's super heavy but what do you expect, the thing is huge but well worth it.
I got to plug my amp up this weekend. I hooked it up to my cirrus and it sounds really nice and clean. By low b really rings and the upper voice sound nice too. When everyone left the house, I decided to turn things up a little.....needless to say I will be replaceing some picture frames that used to look nice hanging on the wall, he he.
