New DT50 Amplifiers from Line 6

The DT50 is a collaboration between Line 6 and Reinhold Bogner that features two channels that can be switched between four amp voicings, Class A or Class A/B, and Pentode or Triode. The amp integrates Bogner's EL34 tube power section with Line 6's new HD amp modeling and Line 6 LINK technology.

“By far the most creative and advanced integration of tubes and amp modeling technology today can be found under the hood of DT50,” comments Elliot Chenault, Line 6 Product Manager. “We’ve totally rethought the relationship between modeling and tubes. The digital section of the amplifier effectively “talks” with the analog section, which was designed by living-legend tube amp designer Reinhold Bogner, for an incredibly responsive and distinctive amplifier that stands alone as Line 6’s flagship amp.”



DT50 guitar amplifiers produce the four amp voicings on which all great amplifiers are based – classic American cleans, chimey and crunchy British tones, and modern high-gain distortion – and they do so with exceptional results. To deliver the most authentic sonic signature, each voicing is comprised of a preamp and tone stack fueled by brand-new Line 6 HD modeling technology, and automatically paired with dynamic analog circuitry including tube configuration and negative feedback topology courtesy of Reinhold Bogner’s uniquely versatile 50-watt EL34 power section.

To produce a classic American amp voicing, for example, DT50 guitar amps engage HD amp modeling technology to configure the preamp and tone stack to produce a gleaming, classic clean tone and supports it by automatically reconfiguring its analog components for a high amount of negative feedback, reproducing the analog circuitry of heralded American amplifiers.

You can also create your own individualized tones with easy front-panel access to the tube amp's analog Class A/Class AB and Pentode/Triode switches. Their favorite Class A amp tones can be run in Class AB, and so on. The mixing and matching of HD amp modeling technology with reconfigurable analog circuitry is one of the many benefits of groundbreaking new Line 6 technology, which is debuting in DT50 guitar amplifiers.

The amps feature a classic, two-channel design for a simple and engaging experience. Each channel can be set with a completely different reconfiguration – Channel A can be Voicing I/Class A/Pentode; Channel B can be Voicing IV/Class AB/Triode – for total one-touch reconfiguration via the channel switch. The streamlined and straightforward layout is free of complexity and learning curve, and is ideal for the gigging musician.

Shawn Hammond from Premier Guitar made a really good demo video of the DT50 at the Line 6 headquarters:
