Here is the deal, I have an old Line 6 Flextone HD 2 amp. I let a friend use it for a gig and his band mate managed to spill Jager inside it.

I am quite handy at electronics and know what is damaged, but the problem is that I cannot identify the values of some of the components on the main amp board since they were burned.

Line 6 doesn't release schematics or any information to individuals, and I don't want to drive this thing to a shop and pay someone else...especially when I can do the work my self.

So, this is where the community may come in handy....

Do any of you have a Line 6 amp like this one? If so, would it be possible for you to take some Hi-Res photos of the main amp board inside the head for me?

Wow....

You're gonna get so many people in this thread saying

"The best way to fix a Line 6 is to get a better amp."

Just giving you a heads up.

On a serious note - make your friend who spilled sh*t into it drive it and pay for the fixing.
Do you feel warm within your cage?

And have you figured out yet -

I don't understand this universal hate on line 6, it is ridiculous. Their spider amps aren't that great for their price, but many of their products are of good quality especially for the price.

the flextone if im not mistaken is actually not a god-awful amp... its the spiders that the people here like to gang-hate.

That's because most people are parroting what they've heard and haven't even tried many of the products they complain about. Never tried a Spider, but the Pod products are great and I've heard good comments on the Flextone amps.

If Line 6 won't release enough info about their amps to fix a burnt resister, then that's a legit reason to rag on them. I'd try contacting tech support and see if they will provide any info. Give them a list of the numbers (i.e. R1, C5, etc...) and see if they will give the values.

honestly like the first dude said buy a new one i mean it will probably cost more to fix it than pic up a decent replacemant i just picked up a behringer v-ampire lx1200 head for like 120 bucks and it has a way better tone than a line 6

The Line 6 is my secondary amp, as I play everything through a Peavy Ultra Plus.

However, that Line 6 Flextone amp is pretty kick ass and is my toy. It makes recording a breeze, and well it offers a ton of effects and cab sims to earn my respect.

Egh.. You've never played a Flextone then have you?

I think I'm going to start calling BS on every Bandwagon comment I see from now on. I'll start with those Vypyr threads.

Not to be mean, but I highly doubt it will be cheaper.

It will take me 1 hour and about 1 dollars worth of resistors.
