    Has anyone checked out the line 6 lowdown bass amps? I was concidering buying a head and cab but a 300 watt combo witht hat many features doesnt sound to bad at all either...:hyper:
     
  2. THese have been discussed a little bit, but I think everyone is waiting on the weights to be listed. These do look like they could be great combos, and hellacool practice amps... but, for me -- it will depend on how heavy these things are.

    Yes and in a lot of cases, 300 watts would be more the sufficient wattage for the basic gig, although I am worried that 300 watts only coming out of 1 15 inch speaker and a horn might not be loud enough, I guess I will jsut have to wait and see.

    Any idea when these things are coming out?

    That is a very good resource for Line 6 information. Hans runs that site & often produces Line 6 news even before the message boards know it. Hans is VERY, VERY quick with information. When they are getting ready to ship -- he will know.

    I cant judge, because I haven't heard one, BUT, if they sound like the Line 6 guitar amps, they will sound like 8 different varieties of classical ASS.

    I do suspect that the 12" not having a tweeter will be a mistake.

    And judging by the handles on the other models, they look heavy - I hope not.

    Line 6 makes some great sounding devices.

    Our singer uses a line six spider. I dont really like the sound of it all that much. I can't imagine their bass stuff would do much for me either.

    I'll wait until there's a head-plus-cabs option - a combo just won't cut it for me anymore. But I do like Line6's stuff - I guess the head will come if the combos do well.

    Yeah. For me I think 300 watts will be fine (sence I'm only 13 and gigs are just starting to come now).
     
  12. YES!!!! My sound is here!

    I can't wait to try one. I have plenty of gear so I don't see myself buying one... but I would love to try one.

    Unlike many others I don't hate on the Line 6. I have a Bass Pod XT for recording and I love it.

    Oh come on now. Be fair. The Brit models sound like vintage ASS, and the California ones sound like modern ASS.

    Who buys these things?

    I have a Bass POD and a guitar POD, and I like them both. So I guess the answer to your question is "me".

    I heard from Sweetwater that they plan on having the Lowdowns around April 7th. I've bought a lot of gear from Mac Hatton (one of the reps), and he said he would A/B it against the Roland Cube 100 and let me know the details.....more to come :hyper:
