i accidentally posted this thread in EG earlier so im gonna repost it here to see if i get better results. I might be able to buy a 60w Line 6 Flextone for $175, and i was wondering if this is a good idea, or if i should just continue on saving for a 75w Vypyr?

get the Flextone.

My dad was trying to get me one for like $400.

Its a better amp than the vypyr by far.

No, the Flextone is a great amp! I would get one, especially for a sweet price of 175 bucks.

I love my Flextone. For 175 you can't go wrong there.

Well, if it was the FBV shortboard, that'd be a REAL steal. That goes for a pretty penny by itself. If it's just the four channel toggle, that's not bad to have either, that's what I have.

$175 for a Flextone is a great deal. If there's nothing wrong with it, I'd jump on that.

only good amp line 6 ever made and $175 is a damn good deal

Fail. Line6 have other good amps like the Vetta. Don't be a bandwagoning tool.

never played one, played every spider, even own a spider 3, and they all suck

flextones cool though, and 175 is a steal

I tried out a Peavey Vypyr 60watt tube today. Didn't like it at all. Their solid state Vypyrs sound a good deal better. The tube ones are either loose and not gainy at all, or they're overly compressed and sound pretty noisy.

If it's a flextone I, they do a good overall job. Not quite as nice as a Flextone II but they're pretty good.

The Flextone II IMO is the best flextone built.

The Flextone III seems to lack a bit in the metal territory.

make sure you upgrade the tech on that thing tough


What are the latest mods out of interest? I was contemplating one as a replacement to my cube. That or a POD. But it really is a good amp so was interested in any mods. Is it Firmware upgrades or is that just the Vetta - I can't remember
#21
do it, it's probably a better modeller than the vypyr and for that price you cant go wrong.

Not quite. Vetta, HD147 and 150. If you count the POD as a preamp, you could even say Atomic amps

since the spiders are what they are famous for, i think its a safe bet to say that the rest of them suck

I'd say they're more famous for PODs, but okay, whatever dude.

Looks like someone is full of total ****.

EDIT: The reason their famous is the POD. The Spider helped because they have tons of features for the price and kinda sound good when you first play with them.
