Line 6 Firehawk 1500
Line 6 is best known for its modeling amps, and if you're new to the guitar and looking at the Line 6 Firehawk 1500, the first thing you should know is what that means. A modeling amp is an amplifier that takes built-in effects to a whole new level, allowing you to re-create the sounds of hard-to-find vintage amplifiers, or to experiment with the settings to shape a signature tone that's all your own. They come in lots of sizes with a variety of feature sets, and the Firehawk 1500 is at the top of the Line 6 lineup on both those fronts. It's a big, high-powered combo amplifier with advanced modeling functions, designed to deliver advanced control and performance in a stage-ready box with a classic look.
There's a lot going on under the hood to allow the Line 6 Firehawk 1500 1,500W Guitar Combo Amp to live up to those lofty goals. For starters, it's driven by a 6-speaker setup including a big 12" driver with a pair of 5" coax mid-rangers and a 1" high-frequency driver. Different modes on the amp will mix the sound sources through these speakers in varying ways, providing all kinds of different voices. The Firehawk is also loaded with extra inputs for backing tracks and other audio sources, and it's capable of handling electric and acoustic-electric guitars with equal ease - all in all, it's one heck of a versatile amp.
Controlling the Firehawk 1500 is a breeze. First of all, there's an LCD display and tone selection controls built into its top panel for setting it up directly. Better yet, you can add the optional Line 6 FBV 3 Advanced Guitar Footswitch to rapidly change settings on-the-fly. Still not enough? Then just whip out your smartphone or tablet: the Firehawk connects via Bluetooth with a free iOS or Android app to give you an intuitive on-screen display for fine-tuning and tweaking your tone, or even downloading ready-made effects from the cloud.
When they built the Firehawk 1500, Line 6 was out to build one amp that could do it all - and they pulled it off. This bad boy gives you enough power for large venues, backed up by the biggest library of amp models that Line 6 has put into any of its modeling amplifiers to date. Combine those features with its dynamic speaker configuration, powerful app support and mixing functionality, and the sky's the limit for what you can accomplish when you take the stage with a Firehawk by your side.
