Line 6 is a company well known for their effects modeling products including amps, pedals, pedalboards, rack gear and even guitars. And while there are many players out there who stick to the tried and true tone of analog, even they can admit that there's no contest when it comes to the sheer amount of sounds possible with this type of gear. With that in mind, we'd like to take a look at a few great pieces of gear from the guys at Line 6.
