Line 6, Inc. (line6.com), the industry leader in digital modeling technology for music-creation products, announces DT50, its new line of flagship guitar amplifiers. The new amplifiers deliver a wide range of inspiring amp tones by delivering a deeper integration of flexible, boutique-style tube design and revolutionary new HD amp modeling technology. DT50 amplifiers will ship late October, 2010.
“By far the most creative and advanced integration of tubes and amp modeling technology today can be found under the hood of DT50,” comments Elliot Chenault, Line 6 Product Manager. “We’ve totally rethought the relationship between modeling and tubes. The digital section of the amplifier effectively “talks” with the analog section, which was designed by living-legend tube amp designer Reinhold Bogner, for an incredibly responsive and distinctive amplifier that stands alone as Line 6’s flagship amp.”
DT50 guitar amplifiers produce the four amp voicings on which all great amplifiers are based – classic American cleans, chimey and crunchy British tones, and modern high-gain distortion – and they do so with exceptional results. To deliver the most authentic sonic signature, each voicing is comprised of a preamp and tone stack fueled by brand-new Line 6 HD modeling technology, and automatically paired with dynamic analog circuitry including tube configuration and negative feedback topology courtesy of Reinhold Bogner’s uniquely versatile 50-watt EL34 power section.??
To conjure a classic American clean amp voicing, for example, HD amp modeling technology configures the amp’s preamp and tone stack to produce a gleaming, classic clean tone. This tone is supported by the automatic reconfiguration of the amp’s analog components, which deliver a high amount of negative feedback – just like analog circuitry of heralded classic American amplifiers. ??Players can also create their own signature tones with easy front-panel access to the tube amp’s analog Class A/Class AB and Pentode/Triode switches. Their favorite Class A amp tones can be run in Class AB, and so on. The mixing and matching of HD amp modeling technology with reconfigurable analog circuitry is one of the many benefits of groundbreaking new Line 6 technology, which is debuting in DT50 guitar amplifiers.??
The amps feature a classic, two-channel design for a simple and engaging experience. Each channel can be set with a completely different reconfiguration – Channel A can be Voicing I/Class A/Pentode; Channel B can be Voicing IV/Class AB/Triode – for total one-touch reconfiguration via the channel switch. The streamlined and straightforward layout is free of complexity and learning curve, and is ideal for the gigging musician. ??
DT50 guitar amplifiers integrate seamlessly with new POD HD multi-effect pedals. Together they deliver incredible tonal variety, functionality and component-to-component communication via new proprietary L6 LINK™ technology. POD HD multi-effect pedals can add scores of effects, trigger DT50 analog circuit reconfigurations, and more. ??
All DT50 amplifiers include a high-quality spring reverb model on each channel, a serial FX loop with level boost/cut, and a push/pull volume pot that engages a Low Volume Mode, which is perfect for late nights or smaller venues. An output transformer-tapped XLR connection provides a cabinet-simulated direct output, providing a line-level output which dynamically interacts with the DT50 speaker and tubes. Channel switching can be achieved via standard 1/4-inch footswitch, MIDI, or L6 LINK connections. ??
