Should be ok, Yamaha makes excellent budget gear. Will the brands merge into one? Linaha 6?

I'm really looking forward to owning a lawnmower with a multifx built in!

Yamaha is the Toyota of the music world. Not always the best but always good. Real working muso's equipment.
Maybe Spiders will get a decent power amp.

I agree, and I was thinking about what improvements could be made to the Spiders, but I don't really know anything about what Yamaha has going on in the guitar amp world.

However, I can see budget powered monitors coming specifically designed for the PODs, and that thought tingles my nethers a little bit.

I hope this will be a good thing. Last thing I need is for a company to **** over something I like. Line 6 has brought in some seriously great stuff, so I hope that nothing gets removed or changes unless for the better.

I agree with Carth. Yamaha is generally known to make a fairly solid product for the working musician.

I expect that we may see some good things come out of this.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

It is kinda sad. The words, made in America, really no longer hold much value. 90% of the time, parts are outsourced from other countries with cheap labour, and then possibly assembled in American.

Lol, that's funny, because Yamaha designed Toyota's performance engines for a long time.

I don't mind, if anything, that means Line 6 will be around for a while, and they'd have plenty of backing for R&D

Line 6 has made acoustic Variax guitars in the past. They also made a Variax Bass

if anyone can fix line 6 it's japan.

they wanted into the modeling amp market, they're in now.
I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.

Japan was already into the amp modeling market with the Zoom & Boss units.

I remember reading the early guys that were working with L6 back in 90's are the ones that formed/working with strymon effects.

Yamaha makes excellent PA stuff at afforable prices. Their THR stuff is quite good because it is easy to get good sounds from it without tweaking for days. The Magic Stomp was also excellent in it's day, the effects section is still fantastic to this day. With L6 being acquired by Yamaha it's possibly going to be fantastic to see more innovative & reliable stuff at reasonable prices coming out from them. Yamaha probably has a large R&D resource available anyway from over the years it's been active in the music business
