New Gear Review: Line 6 AMPLIFi FX100 Pedal


Line 6’s AMPLIFi FX100 pedal connects guitar players wirelessly to an iOS device to control every detail of their sound and store/recall their creations.

AMPLIFi FX100 allows guitarists to play along with tracks in their music library via Bluetooth® streaming audio, and its revolutionary tone matching automatically delivers tones that match their music library.

Any guitar rig setup can be accommodated since the unit has a full set of inputs and outputs—connect to an amp, external speakers or plug in headphones for silent jamming.

AMPLIFi FX100 will play music tracks from an iOS device through a home stereo, while sending guitar tone to an amplifier-—an ideal rehearsal tool. Lastly, AMPLIFi Remote allows guitarists to dial up a stunning tone and then share, download and rate tones with a cloud-based community of musicians.
