About Line 6
Technology has had an enormous impact on music, especially in recent years. Amps and effects are a huge part of your overall tone; many are legends in their own right. Line 6 is at the forefront of these technological innovations. The Calabasas based manufacturer offers a huge array of digital modeling guitars, amps, basses, effects and more.
Line 6 has been striving to meet the needs of musicians using the latest technology since 1996. They amassed a collection of the most cherished amps and effects, then meticulously analyze every aspect of each. After years of tireless research Line 6 launched the world’s first digital modeling amp, the AxSys212, offering players dozens of classic tones and a complete arsenal effects.
The AxSys212 was enormously popular and just one year later Line 6 launched the next evolution in tone, the POD. The small desktop device went beyond just modeling of classic amps and allowed players to easily record killer guitar tone at any volume, in any space, with limited gear. It’s no surprise then that POD has been used on many platinum records and garnered a number of awards.
Line 6 has expanded their amps and effects collections, as well as started producing guitars, basses, software, wireless systems and more. They are able to offer musicians endless possibilities with lines like Flextone II, ToneCore, Vetta II and Variax.
Always seeking out new applications for their modeling technology, Line 6 is open to fresh ideas and exciting partnerships. In 2007, they even partnered with Reinhold Bogner to develop Spider Valve™ amplifiers. With Bogner they combined the versatility of modeling with the feel of a world-class tube amp.
Line 6's dedication to excellence and passion for new technologies has attracted many of the best engineers and designers in the industry. This brilliant group of minds has created a seemingly endless line of products that attract an impressive roster of artists. Add to the mix their open dialogue with an active and informed user base, and it’s easy to see why Line 6 excels at innovation.
