    The ultimate tone machine, fine-tuned to offer the widest palette of tones for any style of music.

    The unbelievably authentic amp tones from the Line 6 Vetta II Combo Amp are based on a world-class collection of vintage and modern amps. Combine them with models of the most sought after stomp boxes to ever hit a pawnshop, plus a rack's worth of studio-grade post-processing gear, and you're halfway there. Vetta II also provides the unique Two Amps at Once feature, which allows you to use any 2 amp and cabinet models either independently or simultaneously.

    Vetta II is loaded with a pair of custom 12" Celestions driven by a 150W stereo power section that can cut through the most demanding performance situations and also features elaborate pro connections to make it the perfect recording rig. Plus, a direct digital Variax Modeling Guitar input seamlessly integrates Variax's collection of guitars with Vetta II's collection of amps, cabs, and effects. Add an FBV pedal board, and this entire setup can be transformed into virtually any rig you can imagine with just the press of a footswitch.

    Vetta II's back panel includes stereo XLR balanced +4dBu direct outputs (with ground lift switch), stereo 1/4-inch unbalanced —10dBV direct outs, 1/4-inch stereo effects loop, Variax® digital guitar input, AES/EBU and S/PDIF digital audio ins and outs (up to 24-bit/96k), Left and Right speaker outputs, MIDI in and out, and an FBV compatible pedal jack.

    I've been playing for 40 years, I have recorded 11 CDs, and I have a live performance band. I currently own a JCM800 Marshall half-stack, a vintage Fender Super, a Peavey, and a few other amps, but the Vetta is the only one I play now - for both recording and for live work.For a few years, I was doing recording studio work only and I was just using my POD and my amps were all collecting dust. Then I put together my current band and I needed an amp that would give me the kinds of tones and flexibility I had with the POD. I especially love the ability to hit one button on the floorboard and change to a completely different rig with all different amps, effects and settings. I tried the smaller Line6 amp, the FlextoneII, but that didn't quite do it for it. The sound just wasn't quite there. So I decided to get the Vetta, and it completely blew me away. There is just nothing like this thing. The tones I get are so sweet. The flexibility is awesome. You need to spend some time up-front tweaking out your favorite tones, but then once you've built the presets you want to use - you're all set! It looks complicated at first, but once you see how the controls actually work, it becomes easy and intuitively obvious.Too many good features to list, but I will point out the master volume, bass, treble and reverb. This allows you to adjust to any room or outside and NOT have to mess with your presets. Cool. 73 different amps - played 2 at a time, plus every effect you could want in any order you want, saved with all your settings in an instantly available user patch. How can you argue with that?Just buy the thing and then never worry about what amp to get ever again. You have everything you'll ever need. After that, whatever you want will not be new gear. it'll just be a setting.

    Don't get this overpriced wannabe of a real amp and don't believe the hype. The Vetta II rocks, no doubt, but only when you are playing through headphones. The amp itself cannot replicate the tones offered by the Vetta II. The presets are lame and it takes a lot of tweaking to dial in something warm and inspirational. Even if you do find a tone that inspires it will only sound truly sonic through the headphone port. I have a Marshall 1960 cab and this was going to be my live set up with the combo powering the cab. No dice. I never even tried to hook up the cab cuz the combo was so weak. Very sad indeed. I'm going to return it and pick up the POD for jamming with my headset. Line 6 is into making really really great stuff but the flagship product is taking on water. Love the concept and I give Line 6 an "E" for effort.

    Vetta 2 was great, until it broke down

    By JonGtr

    from NJ

    Comments about Line 6 Vetta II 300W Stereo Guitar Combo Amp:

    I loved the sounds I was getting out of this amp and the ones I dialed in myself. It had plenty of power even outside and then the nightmare happened. A year or so into it it started making a crackling static sound and then one night, luckily I was at a home jam and not on a gig, it started again and then started squealing and just shut off. It would not turn on again so it was a good thing I bought the gold warranty. It went back to service, 10 weeks later I got it back and still not working right. Returned again 2 times.Back ordered parts,arguing with warranty company, etc. Nightmare. It a shame because I was really digging this amp. I think I'll stick to the tube amps. Computers are not meant to last.

    Patience Leads To Amazing Tones

    By shadesofgray

    from Kentucky

    Comments about Line 6 Vetta II 300W Stereo Guitar Combo Amp:

    The title says it all, with this amp you gotta have patience. You've also gotta have a lot of time and a lot of amp/tone knowledge. If those are not a problem for you then don't even look for another amp, this is the one. I don't care what kind of music like or what kind of guitar you play, you will find the sound you're looking for. The Vetta II really does have it all! I will never buy another guitar amp (until Line 6 makes a Vetta III). By the way this amp is very loud, I mean very, very LOUD. As a matter of fact I've never heard an amp get this loud before. In my opinion 85% of what it models (amps, pedals, etc) are simply amazing! The price is a little high but if you're a serious player you'll probably say that it's the best money you ever spent. Over the years Line 6 has had many great products, this one puts all the others to shame. In addition to being the best Line 6 amp/product, it's also the best modeling amp in the world. A must buy!

    Once you get the hang of it...

    By DareBear02

    from Nebraska

    Comments about Line 6 Vetta II 300W Stereo Guitar Combo Amp:

    I purchased this amp because a lot of Artists I listen to use it live and in studio. On one occasion I saw one of the bands live and was wondering What kind of setup they had. I looked behind them and confirmed online later on that nihgt that they were indeed using a Line 6 Vetta II and FBV direct into the mains. So I was sold after that. This is truley an amazing amp. I'll be honest, once tinkering with it, it took me literally HOURS to dial in the sounds I wanted, There were squeels and ear pinching moments, and for a second I thought I had made a mistake purchasing this, but after a while I got the hang of it and started dialing in some cool stuff. Once I found the tones and effects I wanted, I just couldn't stop playing. This is a tweakers amp for sure, and what's funny is that for the longest time I was "The" Tube snob of snobs, I had a plethora of gear in my old band, I had the racks, pedals and big named Stack but when it came right down to it, I still thought I lacked a decent tone from anything I tried doing. The few months I have used the Vetta II I realized why all those big named artists used this amp, and after a while it's actually easy to get the amp to sound the way I wanted it too. I strongly reccomend reading the Pilots Manual though, and playing with the knobs and effects as much as possible. I would reccomend this to any pro-player who wants the tone and versitility to take them to the next level.

    Heck of an Amp

    By Les-kBlwL

    from Mississippi

    Comments about Line 6 Vetta II 300W Stereo Guitar Combo Amp:

    Heck of a bargain! 5-minutes in the manual and you can tweak and save your favorite sounds. Does it all and then some. I own the CTSE and both of these amps have their own special qualities. Both are keepers and push the limit with dollar for dollar value. My wife cringed when I bought it and told the salesman that her husband (the living room rock star) didn't need that much amp. Salesman replies: Its living room rock stars that keep us in business! Dude was right and made a great sale. Line 6 makes great amps with great effects. Try the Flextone III XL if you can't swing the Vetta. The XL is one dang great amp too!

    The best and most versatile guitar amp.

    Comments about Line 6 Vetta II 300W Stereo Guitar Combo Amp:

    I've owned the Vetta II combo for over three years and it's still my favorite amp. It still out-performs every other amp I've tried in all aspects. It's really great if you're using multiple guitars with different output levels (single coil verses humbucker, etc) because you can save a channel for each guitar and adjust the preamp volumes according to the guitar's output so that your overall master volume level is the same for all guitars. The tones are incredible and keep their integrity at all volume levels. My only gripe is those pesky chrome knobs that come with the amp...you have to call Line 6 and have them send you a set of light plastic knobs because the stock knobs move and change your settings from the vibration of the speakers (even at moderately low volume levels)--hence the 4.5 in quality. Other than that, I would buy this amp again and again I and recommend it to any guitarist. It works for every music genre that requires a guitar.

    Great Sound

    By Morgan-l.XcI

    from Winston-Salem, NC

    Comments about Line 6 Vetta II 300W Stereo Guitar Combo Amp:

    I got to use this while recording and it sounds amazing. With the distortion, it's the same as using my Ibanez Tone Blaster with my Digitech Metal Master. I'm really picky about my sound but this amp is so close to mine so I really really really like it. The built in tuner is easy to use and accurate. You can do so much with this amp with all the built in effects, Line 6 makes great amps. This made my Ibanez RG7321 sound amazing, not to mention it was crystal clear even with the stock pickups. Try this thing, it will not disappoint. The clean channel is great too.

    I love this amp

    By mercurydescends.com

    from Corpus Christi, TX

    Comments about Line 6 Vetta II 300W Stereo Guitar Combo Amp:

    I use this amp along with a VHT pitbull and it is amazing. I have maybe used 15% of this amps potential. It's one of those processors that when you go to a new effect you write a song. There is about 50 pre-programmed effects that are okay. You can tweak those to make your own and save them to your user section or you can start from scratch and make your own effect. There are endless pages of stuff that you can add to a clean sound to muddy, fuzz, distort, echo, anything your little heart desires. If your worried about stage performance don't be. It has two 12 inch Celestions and they sound amazing and they are too loud sometimes.

    Everything - all in one

    By Diggin' It

    from Australia

    Comments about Line 6 Vetta II 300W Stereo Guitar Combo Amp:

    I have used so many different guitars and amps over the past 32 years that I got to the stage where I just wanted something simple but gave me the tools I need to play convincing covers. A friend has a Flextone and I was really impressed with the variety of tones he was getting from it. I realised that you can get some classic tube amp tone without spending a fortune on a collection of classic tube amps. After some research I decided on the Vetta II combo with the Variax 700 guitar. I couldn't be happier. I can cover any song with a tone that sounds just like the original. The comments I have received are awesome. I've lost count of the number of times people have said, "Wow, that sounded just like the original."

    When one is not enough

    By wfs

    from NW Arkansas

    Comments about Line 6 Vetta II 300W Stereo Guitar Combo Amp:

    I own the Vetta 1 version with the Vetta 2 software. I've had it for 4 years and it has been the standard by which I judge all other amps. First, the original version of any amp will always sound better than a "modeling" version. Fender will sound better than the Vetta version of the Fender....but....the Vetta is 90% there and it has dozen of amps and cabinet/speaker variations available. It has almost all of the pedal effects you could ever want. It does them all excellently. When you are at volume in a gig through a monster PA system there is no better amp than the vetta for flexibility, connectivity, tone and control. The tech guys love my vetta. HERE'S THE PROBLEM: This amp is very, very complicated. It is not a plug and play unless you want to just choose one of the 64 combinations that Line 6 starts you with. To truly customize your vetta will take a minimum of one month work and study. However, now I can set up any Vetta to my specs in less than 15 minutes. This is a computer with tons of software pre-loaded in form of effects, amps, cabinets, etc. You wouldn't expect to learn all the features of a new MAC overnight? The work is worth it however. This is an amazing amp. I would purchase another one without hesitation.

    An excellent recording amp

    By SilverStrat-HgSLm

    from Huntsville, AL

    Comments about Line 6 Vetta II 300W Stereo Guitar Combo Amp:

    This is an excellent amp. I?ve owned mine for almost 3 years now. It has a wide variety of different sounds and a lot of flexibility. You can get everything from a sweet sounding, thumping acoustic to a bodacious, screaming lead (I mainly play a Strat). The amp is also very loud, if you want. The direct output, with its A.I.R. (mike emulation), is excellent as well. I use this extensively for recording, and the guitar sounds on my studio monitors are, if anything, better than the combo cabinet output, especially on the acoustic stuff. I haven?t used the Vetta in a live situation, myself, but I expect it would do a fine job there, too. A couple of caveats: the knobs thing is a real problem. Even with the light knobs, they will vibrate you away from your settings if you play at volume. I had a local Line6 guy fix mine when I first got it (he put a backing behind the panel to keep pressure on the shafts), and I?ve had no trouble with it since, but from the factory, it?s practically unusable. The owner?s manual is a little weak, too. It covers the basics, and the appendices contain useful tables, but it doesn?t include the kind of engineering detail you?d expect for an amp of this caliber (and price tag); there?s no index, either. Also, it?s written with a lot of horsing around, but don?t let that throw you. The amp itself is very professional.(Note that I dinged them on the ratings because of the knobs in the value category, even though it?s really a quality issue?it is fixable, after all.)
