Line 6 flextone

The Line 6 Flextone was the first in a series of guitar amplifiers to package Line 6's revolutionary POD digital modeling system in a stand-alone amplifier product. Digital modeling allowed users to access guitar tones based on those of many popular vintage and boutique amplifiers - at a fraction of what it would cost to actually own these amps. At the time of its release in the late 1990s, the Flextone series was a more affordable alternative to the company's flagship AxSys 212 amplifier.

Flextone Product Line

The original flextone product line consisted of five models:
*Flextone 1x12- A 60 watt amplifier with one 12" speaker.
*Flextone Duo- A 100 watt stereo amplifier with two 10" speakers.
*Flextone Plus- A 100 watt amplifier with one 12" speaker and a connection for stereo operation via 1x12" extension cabinet.

*Flextone HD- A 300 watt amplifier head. Connects to separate 1x12", 2x12" or 4x12" speaker cabinets.
