Product Description

The Line 6 LD300 LowDown offers 300 watts of power in a 1x15 combo. The LD300 offers some of the greatest rock bass tones in a powerful combo, ready for stage or studio.

Overview
The first ever line of bass amps from Line 6, LowDown delivers an incredible array of dialed-in, stage-perfected bass tones. While most bass combos focus on volume and clean tone, LowDown amps offer five must-have effects and five killer bass amp models, that cover everything from funk to classic rock and beyond. Plus, the oversized, high-speed power amp has incredible articulation and bottom end punch that's ideal for live or studio work.

Finally, there's a line of bass combos that give you great tone, performance, and flexibility all at an incredible price.

Amps
LowDown delivers five carefully crafted amp models that can take you from modern punch to a thunderous, full-on assault! Each model automatically dials up a great sound that you can change to your liking and save into a preset using the channel memories on the front panel.

Clean -- Inspired by the Eden Traveler, this model is all about clean, funk and fusion bass tone. It'll give you all the warm lows and punchy highs you need.

R & B -- Inspired by a 1968 B-15 Flip Top, this model is a tribute to those late 60's and early 70's clean fat bass tones. It is the kind of tone you here on most Motown recordings, as played by a pioneering young James Jamerson.

Rock - This model is inspired by the '74 Ampeg SVT . This workhorse has appeared on innumerable recordings and arena stages worldwide. And now all the tone of the 300-pound behemoth 8X10 and head is available in your combo!

Brit -- Based on a '68 Marshall Super Bass, this model delivers the kind of overdriven bass sound brought to us by late '60's British rock pioneers like Cream and The Who.

Grind -- As the name would suggest, this is for modern rock lovers, Alice in Chains to Mudvayne and Rage Against The Machine. Based on a distorted SansAmp PSA-1 into an SVT in addition to a direct clean bass signal mixed in, this model gives you that angry, clear and punchy aggression that takes your sound to DEFCON 1.

But that's not all...

Synth -- Sitting at the back of the model knob is this secret weapon that turns LowDown into a '70s classic bass synth. From funk to modern rock, this synth model delivers incredible tones and tracks every dynamic move you make with ease!

Effects
LowDown features a critical set of effects that no bass player should be without! You get a full time, vintage studio compressor model, and the Smart FX knob dials up three different heavyweight effects that are custom tailored for bass.

Envelope filter -- Based on a Q-Tron, this is the baddest envelope filter on the planet. This effect can be heard on tons of major funk and rock tunes.

Octaver -- Based on the EBS OctaBass , this effect produces a single note one octave below the pitch of the played note, adding a powerful new vibe to your sound.

Chorus -- Based on the much loved TC Electronics Chorus. This is the most transparent, smooth and expressive chorus for bass ever built. Using it does not reduce your low end and it's especially beautiful on fretless bass.

Amazing Tone On Stage and In The Studio!
The XLR Direct Output was designed for recording or sending your sound to a house sound system when you're playing live. This output utilizes our exclusive A.I.R. processing which has made Line 6 products like POD the undisputed standard for direct recording. Whether you're playing a gig in a club or rushing off to a recording session, this POD-based direct out will give you huge, mic'd amp tone everywhere you go!

FAQ
LowDown 175 and 300 has a horn, can I turn it off?
The LowDown amps include a horn for all the great players that like to slap their basses or value some extra articulation. However, being sensitive to the rock players in our midst, we made a special provision to disable the horn by pressing the small "Horn" switch located near the XLR Direct out jack.

Is there a ground lift on the XLR direct out so I don't get hum from the PA
Every once in a while you may experience a ground loop problem which sounds like a buzz in your signal, when connecting gear to a PA system. If this happens to you, simply alert your sound person, and try pressing the ground lift switch. Usually this will eliminate the ground loop.

Is the LowDown cabinet ported?
Yes! The LowDown cabinet uses a proprietary waveguide port designed to enhance sub resonant bass frequencies.

What is the deal with active and passive inputs?
A "passive" instrument has no built-in preamp and does not use a battery. An "active" bass utilizes a battery-operated preamp. Each type of instrument has a different signal level range, so we have included two inputs to best address each input range. The funny thing is that some passive instruments can produce more signal that many active instruments, so here's what we recommend: Start by using the passive input. If your bass' output distorts the input section (the Tuner LED will momentarily light to indicate when you're clipping the input), switch to the active position.

What is the difference between the direct out on my "your bass amps name here" and the LowDown's direct out?
The LowDown features Bass POD style "Miked Up" Cabinet Emulated direct outs. That means you get the same tone coming out of your amp going to tape or to the sound system. Most bass amps with a direct out simply offer your original bass tone or your tone after amp eq, but LowDown is the only amp to offer real sounding amp AND cabinet tone.

I like to keep things simple. I only use one tone. Is LowDown for me?
LowDown is a toneful alternative to some really expensive, and tremendously heavy vintage and modern bass gear. If all you want to do is play one sound, get to "Manual" mode by simply pressing the active Channel button to turn off the LED. Now you're in the land of "What You See Is What You Get". Turn knobs, then groove.

What should I do if I get my foot stuck in the port?
To date we have tested Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Pam , Bag Balm and Cod Liver Oil, all of which we recommend as excellent lubricants for bass port pediectomies.

Why would I want the LD300Pro over the LD175
While the LD175 will have no problem keeping up with your drummer in a rehearsal or small gig setting, the LD300 Pro can annihilate most drummers.

Tell me about the grind model.
As the name would suggest, this is for you modern rock lovers, Alice in Chains to Mudvayne and Rage Against The Machine. This model is based on a distorted SansAmp PSA-1 into an SVT with direct clean bass signal mixed in for that angry, clear and punchy aggression that takes your sound to DEFCON 1.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (21 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "An Amazingly versatile and powerfully punchy bass amp."
Sound: The LD300 sounds amazing! I've compared the different amp modes to the original amps , and they are spot on. There is actually more flexibility available than most of the originals. For instance - a 300watt B-15 does not become an SVT-it stays B-15 but LOUD. So versatile-there is no other bass amp out there like this one. I've played P-bass, J-bass, Rickenbacker, Danelectro, Jaguar, Hofner and Burns thru this amp and have been able to get any sound I go for with any bass. Feature: The different amp personalities are endlessly useful. The fx are good but take a little tweeking, as does the Synth mode. I first thought the Synth was just a gimmick, but with some tweeking and practice on technique, have found that it is very useful and powerful. The FBV Shortboard makes the total package. Ease of Use: This amp was so easy to use and set. The memory locations are simple to use. Quality: Seems a little less robust than some "pro" amps, but still up there with the best built. Value: There is no other amp in any price range to compare with LowDown series of amps. It is total value for money. Manufacturer Support: No problems. The Wow Factor: Looks really cool. The front panel is a bit plain, but very "modern looking. Wish the knobs were marked on top rather than underneath. Overall: The only reason I would change from the LD300 is to use a different speaker cabinet.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "If you want an excellent quality combo bass amp with plenty of power (300 watt) and great FX and lots of sounds to work with...l"
Sound: Very versatile sound. I recently got this amp and think it's got so much available for various FX and mixed sounds that you can really got alot out of it.. Feature: I'm going to look into getting the board for this 'cause it has alot of features to add to this already cool amp. Ease of Use: Quite EZ 2 use! You can set the 4 presets and get them going or you can set up the sounds as you like and dial in the various sounds available The manual is quite EZ and it does the job but, YOU have to do the work and check out all this amp can sound like and do for you... Quality: I believe this amp has good quality of workmanship and is built to last and will do the job for you as long as you just don't drop it from a 4 story building..or from any height...LOL!! It's got excellent side handles which are spring loaded and they work well. I have a small floor dolly I use to put it on and to move it around...it weights a good amount so, it helps to use it. Value: The the quality and for the FX and sounds this amp can do for you..and the price is damn good too! If I would have gotten this amp at the local music store, I would have paid alot more...I did not have to pay tax and the shipping was very cheap..I got in in less than a week and I love it!! Zzounds is a great place to purchase anything musicial!! Manufacturer Support: It has the usual warranty on it and I know if it ever needs it I'll have it taken care of..but I don't think it's gonna be a problem at all! The Wow Factor: This amp has lots of sexy beefy appeal to it I think! It's got cool looks and does the job! The 2 side ports in the front of the amp help to desense the bass sound waves inside the amp and help the lower sound waves got out and you can feel them too as well as hear them which is important for sexy bass vibrations for all!! Overall: Compared to Ampeg amps this size and the combo amps, This Line 6 LD300 rock it out of the park and it a better value and deal! You get more sounds and more for your money!! I can do more with this amp and it does have more features on tap to use and you can also plug in a drum machine or CD/Mp3 to play along too! which is cool!!
