Is the line 6 hd 147 any good?

very good, quite excellent in fact. if you're a fan of line 6, this head is their peak of perfection.


If your a fan of line 6, you must either like the flextone or your ears are broken

These are a waste of cash man
budget?

don't knock it 'till you've tried it. this head can compete with the best of them and if you want loud, 300 watts definitely ADDS to this amps quality. I've owned it for 2 years and i doubt you've played on it for 5 seconds.

Line 6 is trash...

For slightly less money you can get a Peavy 6505 and for slightly more you can get a Mesa Dual Rectifier or a Krank Revolution...

BTW...I used Line 6 for a year...I use to like it once...Intill I really listened to it and I realized how bad it sounds...Espessally in comparison to Mesa, Krank, and the high class peavy amps.

The Hd-147 is great. For the prices you can find them used, I'm still debating on whether or not I want one for convienance.

I just wish a lower wattage vetta combo would be released for a cheaper price.
Because vettas have some darn good tone (although not as good as a cranked higher end tube amp), and tons of versatility, it would be the ultimate practice and small jam amp for me.

As far as wattage goes, they can get very quiet, and very loud. They have enough watts to do medium venues without micing, nor going over 50% total volume. Beyond that, I would use the direct out and run through a PA. If you had a 16 ohm out running into 1 Eminence legend speaker (16ohms of course) that would be like 75watts.

It is quite large though. I guess you could get a POD xt Live, expansion packs, and one of those atomix tube amps for pod preamps.

I mean, I'd just like a small portable combo version at a cheaper price. So, I wouldn't have to pay extra for size and wattage I really don't need.

lol, I'm calling BS on your claim of owning a Vetta II and thinking it sounded crap.
You just got knee deep in the argument and realised that if you backed out, you'd confirm our thoughts that it was indeed a Spider which you thought sounded crap. So you tried to pull one over us with the assumption that none of us have played on it as those of us who (apparantly) know what we're going on about are pretty much valve purists didn't you!
Oh yes.

Just cant see paying 1200 bucks for a SS amp. And you still have to buy the footswitch and a cab. Hopefully its more reliable than some of the other line6 products.

It's meant for people who need the versatility. Maybe you're a studio or touring guitarist who might need to play a variety of different things. You're paying for the combination of a ton of different effects and amp models into one head or combo that comes pretty damn close to replicating the originals.

I only briefly had a chance to play a Vetta (not sure which one it was) side-by-side with a Spider III, and it really was like night and day.

If it's locally owned store you could get the head and footswitch together for about $1100 if they're cool people.

Not to mention you don't have to buy effects, overdrives, tuners, wahs, all that other stuff that adds up.

Bass frequencies are one thing. Solid state transistors tend not to cope so well with the higher end.
Quote by MESAexplorer
As far as wattage goes, they can get very quiet, and very loud. They have enough watts to do medium venues without micing, nor going over 50% total volume.

So wth does it running at full capacity sound like? 300W of solid state in a guitar amp is never needed.

If it was about £500 cheaper and only about 150W, then I would think that it was good value for money, but as it is, they're just putting expensive wattage in it just to look better on paper.

Well, it's a stereo amp, so it puts out 150w to each channel.

And as far as solid state amps go, look at the Roland Jazz Chorus

and it costs $1,250 in the US, which is not bad considering all the things it can do. It is probably an optimal amp for, say, a session musician or a studio situation.

The express was Mesa Boogie's worst amp. Sounds absolutely weak and papery. I can get better tones out of a peavey classic and distortion pedal.

HEAD ROOM. 300watts running at 50% for a large venue, or 150watts running at 70%? You never want to push an amp harder than about 70% tube or solid state, thats just asking to put your amp in a world of assfock. Not to mention it's stereo, so if you run 1 cabinet it would only be 150watts. And the combos are 150watts to begin with.

If it were £500 or $1,000 cheaper line 6 would go broke.
