OK guitar boys, two more tone-snob converts this week…
Jeremy, who’s playing credits include years with country megaband Lonestar, is now leaving his vintage Fender Bassman and beautiful homemade pedalboard at home…
Brad, who just got off the road with Matt Wertz, no longer shall lug around his sweet boutique red Dr. Z head and cabinet…
And Kevin, to answer your question of: “So I’m curious about why they chose the X3 over something like the VOX ToneLab. Any thoughts? Anyone you could refer me to to find out more details?”
My initial guess is that:
1 – Line 6 has been at the forefront of amp simulation technology for years.
2- The X3 and X3 Live have twice the processing power than any previous Line 6 products.
3- Line 6 has a wealth of online and phone support, users groups, etc.
4- The Live model is actually quite rugged, especially compared to previous Line 6 products.
5- In the right hands, this thing sounds AMAZING!
6- Todd Fields, Steve Thomason, Danny Grady love theirs. That alone should sell anyone!
7- VOX is not known or respected for their digital technology. Instead, they make great british tube amps.
So we’ve now deduced that you can have a professional gig-quality rig for under $500. Just add a decent guitar and a 1/4″ cable!
What are YOU waiting for? (I’m waiting because I’m a keyboard player…)
