line6 flextone III

i was trying this new amp in a music store for some minutes .
the first impression was like ... WTF ... it sounded just awesome .
i never was a friend of those modelling units , but maybe ...
things have changed .
would be a hard decission to say those vox & marshalls goodbye .
it provides some nice features for a small amount of money .
having an " analog " guitar setup which let you have the same flexibility = xtra-expenisve .
still , i need to try it for real to proof if i was just blinded by the first impressions or if its really a workhorse .

if anybody has tried it already , let me know , peace

If it's anything like the last 2 series, the wow factor wears off, in it's not really all that impressive. I sold my Flextone, and am hunting for the perfect tube amp.

I still use the POD for recording though.

I've had the 1 and now have a 2..they are OK..The wow will wear off!The 3's that I've tried sound very similar to the previous models..Just a few more options.... really theres no substitute for a tube amp at least for now anyways!

They're actually claiming an improvement in the way the power amp reacts, which is what I felt was really missing in the first 2 series. I would really like to try one out.

But still, when I can get a used Mesa or Marshall for around the same price, I am willing to give up the versatility in exchange for the organic feel of tubes.
