Line 6: Flextone III XL

Purchased from: Samash

Sound — 8
It has a great sound it does the amp models very well and like I said before it's good for any musical style from metal to jazz. The amp can get noisy but it has a noise gate Switch which eliminates that problem. Now obviously if you where to go out and buy the actually amps it models they would sound better. But the amp does a great job and you can't do better for the price.

Overall Impression — 9
Overall this is great it's got a good wide range of tones, it's durable and has all the features you would ever want. For under a grand look no further than a Flextone III. The only other amps I would buy would be a Line 6 Vetta series or Peavey JSX but those amps cost more than twice of what the Flextone costs.

Well I've had this amp for over 2 years. I've had countless band practices and gigs and this thing hasn't let me down yet. I have never had one probelm with it it's been banged around droped and still in perfect working order. It takes a licking and still keeps ticking.

This is an awesome amp it's extremely versatile good for any stlye of music you could say it's a jack of all trades. The amp has 4 channels and there is a footswitch available for $200 more definately a worthy investment. This amp can get very loud it's got 150 solid state watts. It retains most of the sound quality when you crank it but it's not a tube amp so it's not perfect. Really the only thing you could do to improve this amp is to make it a tube amp.
