THANKS, for your interest . . ( Replies, Welcome !! ) I assure you of personal experience (music production), that the following info will provide you with a satisfying result; based on the Marshall 1959/ 1987 amplifiers. That said, I have ultimately gained the sound-knowledge of these musical machines; whether such be 6L6, or EL34-based TONES. Otherwise, for practical reasons I choose to record through the orig. Line 6 Pod HD Pro modeler, as well . . Example : I have created a personal program patch which, has an uncanny sonic-resemblance to those particular EL34-loaded amps. An alternative speaker cabinet *(1x12) was substituted for the typical, matching 4 x12 (due to overall, sweeter tonality). Provided below, are the exact settings I employ for recording purposes : Vintage, Marshall-Style Amplifier 1.) Distortion/ Tube Drive : 84%, Bass 51%, Mid 2%, Treble 41%, Output 75% 2.) Dynamics/ Blue Comp : Sustain 14%, Level 98% 3.) Dynamics/ Boost Comp : Drive 70%, Bass 50%, Comp 5%, Treble 40%, Output 53% 4.) Brit P-75 : *112 BF Deluxe, 421 Dynamic 5.) Volume A : -3.0 dB, Pan A/ L 96% 6.) Volume B : +1.0 dB, Pan B/ R 91% 7.) Studio EQ : Low Freq. 700 Hz, Low Gain -1, High Freq 200 Hz, High Gain -1.1, Gain -0.4 8.) Reverb : '63 Spring, Decay 19%, P. Delay 21 Ms, Tone 27%, Mix 84%, 9.) FX Loop : Send -25.0, Return +14.0, Mix 92%.
I recently saw a post on Reverb.com for a line 6 Axsys 212. Two actually. One was for $400 and the other for $800 (same amp, just posted twice). I asked the seller, who owns a vintage guitar shop in Miami, how he came to the valuation of these amps. I had seen them sold at Guitar Center and Music Go Round for like, $170-$300, and on Craigs for about the same. There is a fellow on ebay who is piecing out the amp, selling the speakers for $120 and the circuit board for about he same. The seller said that these amps specifically are poised to become vintage and that's why he raised the selling price from 400 to 800, pretty close to it's selling price and not bad for a solid state amp...but it just doesn't seem correct to me. I just wanted to hear what others thought about this, especially since I heard that modeling amps don't hold value. I'd also wonder what any Line 6 employees think about this?
