Four boutique tube amps in one, so you can find your tone. If your tone is your masterpiece, DT25 is your paintbrush. This portable 25W/10W tube amp from Line 6 and tube-amp guru Reinhold Bogner gives you four stunning, lust-worthy amp voicings and unprecedented versatility that lay the foundation for you to build your perfect tone.
The powerful combination of reconfigurable analog components and HD modeling allows DT25 to be four amps in one capable of producing American cleans, British crunch, class A chime and modern high-gain. Selectable operating class, power tube mode and four Voicings (which offer the perfect combinations of negative feedback loop topology, and HD preamp and tone stack modeling) can dial in classic vintage tones or be shaped into highly customized originals – and each one drips with boutique tone and touch-response.
Fine-tune each DT25 voicing by reconfiguring analog components and crafting original tones that transcend the classic templates. DT25 provides a truly wide tonal palette.
Selectable analog components. Rather than being set in stone like those of most great tube amps, the analog components at the heart of DT25 are all totally reconfigurable to match the tones in your head. Select any of the amp’s four voicings (which offer the perfect combinations of negative feedback loop topology, and HD preamp and tone stack modeling), and the DT25 gives you analog settings to match. You can further alter settings such as output tube class (A or AB), power tube mode (pentode/triode) settings and more to take your tone beyond the traditional templates.
Channel switching for instant flexibility. In addition to all of its voicing flexibility, DT25 features two entirely independent channels. A flick of its A/B switch or a tap of a latching footswitch is capable of causing a full analog and digital transformation – go from a tight, crystalline American clean to an open, jangly British crunch. Dial in two clean sounds or set one channel as a Boost. Set them any way you like – you’re not forced to choose between just ""clean"" and ""dirty.""
Low Volume mode. Way beyond a traditional master volume, switching to Low Volume mode lets you take the DT25 down to whisper-quiet levels for recording or late-night jamming, without losing an ounce of your crystalline clean or bone-crunching high-gain tones. The tubes distort less in Low Volume mode so the HD modeling technology picks up the slack and fills out the tone with rich power amp modeling so it still sounds like it’s cranked up even at low levels.
Celestion speakers for incomparable tone. The world over, Celestion speakers are the first name in tone and original equipment in countless classic tube amps. DT25 combos and extension cabinets include custom-voiced Celestion G12H-90 speakers for optimum tonal depth and clarity.
L6 LINK for total connectivity. The innovative L6 LINK jacks are your window to incredible flexibility and instant scalability with other Line 6 gear equipped with L6 LINK jacks. Connect a POD HD multi-effect to a DT25 amp and the two combine to form a boutique amp factory capable of creating any vintage or modern tone you need. Bring a second (or third, or fourth) DT25 to that party to create incredible stereo rigs, wet/dry setups and more. All it takes to make an L6 LINK connection is a single XLR cable, but what you get is exponentially greater.
Additionally, L6 LINK connections are free of the noise and hum issues you can run into when trying to achieve similar functionality with the four-cable method and other multi-cable configurations.
MIDI in and out/thru. With its back-panel MIDI in and out/thru jacks, DT25 is primed and ready to receive all your MIDI switching commands – from simple to complex. Use any standard MIDI switching system to control channel, voicing, reverb on/off, pentode/triode mode and class A/AB selection.
Channel and reverb footswitch. The footswitch jack on the back of the DT25 provides some simple and incredibly useful functions. Connect any standard latching, two-button footswitch with a TRS cable for channel switching and global reverb switching. Or, for channel switching only, use a single-button footswitch connected with a TS (aka ""mono"") cable.
Serial effects loop. The Send and Return jacks that make up the DT25 serial effects loop tap the signal chain post-preamp so you can link up your own favorite effect devices, from vintage tape delays to modern multi-effects processors like Line 6 stompbox modelers.
Multiple speaker outputs. A straightforward selection of speaker outputs provides a fool-proof connection to single or multiple speaker cabs without fear of an impedance mismatch. Whether it’s a single 4-ohm, 8-ohm or 16-ohm cab, or two 4-ohm or two 8-ohm cabs at a time, DT25 has clear back-panel connections that make it easy to achieve a safe match.
Cabinet-simulated direct out. Go direct and get rich, juicy DT25 tone without mic’ing the speaker. Connect an XLR cable from the transformer-tapped direct out to a PA, mixer or recording interface and achieve every detail of your precious tone complete with full cab simulation. A handy ground-lift switch is included to eliminate any unwanted hum or buzz.

Value Quality Features
The British mode works the same - with Marshall-like tones when cranked and lowering the gain, the clean tone is very punchy and tight.
The third mode is much like a Matchless or Vox, having plenty of drive while maintaining individual note clarity.
The fourth mode - Modern High gain mode is super saturated lead tones and aggressive rhythms – with the right amount of chunk to sustain ratio for my tastes.
You can also chose triode/pentode mode as well as class A / class AB mode and each of these accet the overall tone of the main modes as well, giving you endless tonal variations and varieties to choose from. It is a very inspiring amp in that you can always find a familiar tone that reminds you of a particular song and that makes you want to keep playing and creating! I really dig this amp for song writing and practice as well as small gigs. (Posted on 7/17/2012)
