Product Description

The Line 6 DT50 goes further than any other amplifier to produce the best amp tones. Many amplifiers offer either modeling technology or reconfigurable analog circuitry, but DT50 offers both to deliver something bigger than the sum of its parts. With HD modeling technology, a host of switchable analog components, and a simple and elegant 2-channel interface - DT50 guitar amplifiers are in a category all their own.

Features

- Line 6 HD amp modeling technology seamlessly integrates with Reinhold Bogner's uniquely (and extremely) versatile tube sections
- DT50 goes further than any other amplifier to produce great amp tones by offering both modeling technology and reconfigurable analog circuitry to deliver something bigger than the sum of its parts
- Reconfigurable analog circuitry includes negative feedback loop, operating class (Class A, Class AB)
- Power tube mode (Pentode/Triode) to change 50/25 watts
- Low-power mode
- 2-channels with individual reverb

Tube Design Meets HD Modeling Technology

The Line 6 HD modeling technology fully integrates with Reinhold Bogner's most flexible tube design. They breathe unparalleled warmth, feel and depth into the amp voicings on which all great amplifiers are based - classic American cleans, chimey and crunchy English tones, and modern high-gain distortion. The 4-way Voicing switch is the heart of DT50, and flicking this switch starts a chain reaction that produces these incredible tones.

Line 6's HD modeling technology fuels each Voicing's preamp and tone stack, and automatically pairs them with dynamic analog circuitry including tube configuration and negative feedback topology (courtesy of Reinhold Bogner's uniquely versatile 50-watt, EL34 power section). You get high amounts of negative feedback when you want your American clean tones to gleam and shine, zero negative feedback when you want your chimey English tones to sport their signature dynamics, and everything in between. All four Voicings deliver their heralded sonic signatures.

Want to put your own John Hancock on these sonic signatures? Use the front-panel Class A/Class AB and Pentode/Triode switches. Ever wonder what your favorite English Class AB amp sounded like in Class A? Want to run your favorite single-ended Class A amp tone and give it more headroom in Class AB? Well now you can.

2 channels for 1 touch analog reconfiguration

With beauty deeper than its striking good looks, DT50 has a traditional two-channel format that is stunningly simple and instantly usable.

Get total analog reconfiguration with one touch. Any combination of Voicing, operating class and power tube mode can be assigned to either channel. For example, Channel A can be Voicing I/Class A/Pentode, and Channel B can be Voicing IV/Class AB/Triode. This streamlined and straightforward layout is free of complexity and learning curve, and is ideal for any gigging musician.

Real analog flexibility

Sonic flexibility is a big part of the DT50 blueprint. Fortifying that concept is the behind-the-scenes communication between the tube sections and the HD amp modeling technology. Each one adapts and adjusts based on what the other is doing. For example, at high volumes the HD amp modeling technology "backs off" to allow for the natural power-tube distortion to take over and color the tone. At low volumes, the opposite happens. As a result, DT50 yields outstanding "sweet spot" tone at all volume levels.

DT50 also offers a "low-power" mode, which is perfect for recording or quieter gigs. Low-power mode lets the HD modeling technology provide both preamp and power amp tones so you can perform with all the grit and gain you need without the volume that normally comes with it.

Looking for total floor control? Connect a POD HD multi-effect pedal via L6 LINK connection to control DT50 voicings and more while utilizing the enormous collections of vintage and modern FX and HD amp models in POD HD. (Sold separately.)

Even when using the DT50 as a straight-up, stand-alone tube amplifier you can still employ its MIDI I/O to a standard MIDI controller for on-the-fly switching of all of its tube parameters.

Wrap it all in the tank-like construction that both Line 6 and Bogner are famous for, and you've got years of trouble-free performance on the road, and in the studio.

zZounds Expert Review
When it comes to amp modeling, the one name I have come to know and love is Line 6. I've had the privilege of playing several of their products, always with great results and the DT50-212 is no different. With the help of Reinhold Bogner himself, this amp truly acheives real tube sound -- because it has two 12AX7s in its preamp and two EL34s in the power section. With just about every parameter made adjustable on the DT50-212, this amp lets me make a lot of on-the-fly changes while performing. One thing that stuck out to me was the voicing option, which helped me achieve any type of amp sound. Its integration with the L6 connection to plug into a POD system really makes this amp and a POD a gig-friendly pair. This has suited me well for when I can't bring numerous amps and need something that is versatile.

Customer Reviews
3.5 out of 5 (3 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Excellent amp I'm proud to be seen using"
Sound: (used mainly with 2 Jackson Adrian Smith Signature strat style guitars with Dimarzio distortion in bridge and noisless single coils in neck and middle) I'm putting my vote in that this is a great sounding and feeling amp. I do think the high gain tones are this amps forte which is primarily what I want. The amp really works well with overdrive pedals.. my favorites are the maxon overdrive pro and a hardwire overdrive. Amp reacts great and I would say this is, so far, my favorite high gain tone. The other tones and 'topologies' are good to very good. I would have no problem only owning this one amp ( if I had too). Amp also is dynamic and cleans up nicely with your vol. knob. The only issue I have is that there is a background noise.. like a fan sound ( no fan exists)..very even.. not crackly.. just a constant background sound .. even in the very cleanest of settings .. which is disappointing but not a deal breaker with this amp. Feature: No footswitch comes with this amp... all you need is a 1 button footswitch to change channels... should come with the amp. You get a brief quick start manual and it refers to an advanced DT50 manual online.. but as of this review .. this manual is not available on line6 website. This amp also just begs for more than only 2 settings.. we're spoiled these days.. but it is a little frustrating to only setup for 2 tones.. knowing all that this guy can do. Ease of Use: high gain tones are very easy to get to sound great.. the others take a little tweaking .. i've found that you shouldn't be afraid to really turn up the treble, presence and midrange.. and turn down the bass. Quality: This amp is built OK. I noticed some things that just doesn't put this amp in the high quality category. I think for this kind of money line6 can do a little better.. examples are pop in thread retainers used to hold the bolts of the amp chasis to the cabinet.. I have one that was loose.. will need to try to solder it .. the grill cloth had a few irregularities. Value: I'm rating this an 8 due to the quality issues but from a guy who buys about 4-5 high dollar amps a year ( buy and sell ) I really like this amp! Manufacturer Support: Not Known The Wow Factor: come on.. if your an electric guitar player .. even if you've not liked line6 in the past your still very curious what Line 6 comes out with! I can say I really like this product.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "DT50 great modeling amp with real tube stage"
Sound: The DT50 is an awesome amp. The sound is incredible giving you multiple combinations of sound possibilities. Feature: The DT50 should have casters thats one of the downfalls you have to put your own on its heavy at 80+ pounds Ease of Use: The DT50 is easy to use by itself you just turn the tone, gain etc and awawy you go. Now if you plan to hook it up to the HD500 and a Variax guitar like I have it becomes much more complex and takes some time to get the tones that you are looking for. Quality: The build quality of the DT50 is great mine came in perfect condition without a scatch. Value: I believe the DT50 gives you multiple application possibilities that would cost you 5,000 + if you bought each amp seperately. Now that the DT50 has a real tube stage its a whole new ball game Manufacturer Support: I have found any information I need on the DT50 on LINE6's forums I have never had to call in for assistance. The Wow Factor: The DT50 has a nice vintage look to it it lights up above each knob so if you are in a dark area on stage for example its easy to turn the knob to the proper position. Overall: I will keep the DT50 until LIne6 comes out with something better
