Line 6 is no stranger to making a huge impact at Musikmesse in Frankfurt, Germany. In the past five years, Line 6 has taken home 8 MIPAs (Musikmesse International Press Award) for innovations like POD and Variax, and this year would prove to be no exception. Variax Bass 700 won in the Electric Bass category, and PODxt Live took home the award for Guitar EFFECTS (19” OR FLOOR). Variax Acoustic 700 was also nominated in the Best Innovative Product and Acoustic Guitar categories. But it doesn’t stop there.
Line 6 was also a force at the PPV Magazine Awards, where Variax Bass 700 was awarded “Bass of the Year,” and PODxt Live took home the award for “Guitar Tool of the Year.” These awards are voted for by the readers of PPV magazines, which include SoundCheck, Guitar, Keys, Tastenwetl, PMA, and Drumheads.
