Robin Le Mesurier
Robin LeMesurier is currently playing and touring with the legendary Rod Stewart. During Rod’s down time, you can find Robin touring overseas with Johnnie Halliday. You’ll also find him on countless records made here and over seas as well. Read below for all the Line 6 gear Robin is using during his busy touring schedule.
Where did you first hear about Line 6?
I first heard of Line 6 thru ads in the guitar Magazines. Also a friend of mine had one of the original POD’s which I was interested in. That’s it basically.
What Line 6 gear are you using and how are you using it?
I use a POD xt at home, and I use a Line 6 Acoustic Variax on the road with Rod Stewart which is fantastic because we have a lot of different tunings. It’s just easy, you hit a button and a way you go. I also use the Duoverb amp with 2 4x12 cabs.
What tunings are you using in the Variax?
I use the capo function going a ½ step down, and the drop D tuning.
Which of the Models in the Variax are you using?
I use the Jazz for the standard songs, and the Dreadnought and Jumbo for the rest of the songs.
What are Models are you using in the Duoverb?
I am using the Hiwatt and the Brit’s and use them together. As a matter of fact the guitarist Jeff Golub who has played for Rod in the past came to a show said the sound was fantastic! I mike the speakers with Rob but when I play with Johnnie we go direct. We even A/B’s them once and we couldn’t tell the difference.
How have our products changed the way you work?
Immensely! In the olden days you have to take a rack of stuff and now I don’t! I just take the Duoverb and variax Acoustic. I love the Duoverb amps they are so responsive.
What is your favorite Line 6 amp model, effect…?
My favorite is what I am using, the Hiwatt and Brit sounds from my Duoverb.
