NAMM 2017: Line 6 Release Variax Shuriken and Spider V 240HC
With a baritone scale length, advanced Variax HD technology and a distinctive body, the Variax Shuriken posesses a sharp, firm tone that carries even the most technical of riffs into a crushing cacophony of sound. Line 6's first artist designed guitar, the Shuriken has been described as being able to "do things no other guitars on the planet can do".
Optimised for players who perform with heavier strings and lower tunings, the extended scale length provides for a more robust tone and helps the guitar to work in its various alternative tunings regardless of the tension or feeling of the strings.
In addition to this brand new guitar Line 6 have also announced the latest addition to their amp modelling range, the Spider V 240HC. A combo amp that is shaped into the form of an amp head and also able to be connected to an external cab, the V 240HC allows for complete pliability for either practice or live scenarios.
Speaking of the Spider V 240HC Line 6 said:
"For almost 20 years, Spider amps have offered guitarists massive tonal options and groundbreaking features that push the boundaries of technology. Spider V 240HC continues that legacy of innovation and gives performing guitarist the power and flexibility to play loud on stage or practice more quietly at home, without compromising their tone."
Paired with an inbuilt stereo speaker 4x12 speaker cabinet that delivers stereo high frequency precision in a state of the art stage ready format. When the gig or rehearsal is over the guitarist is able to unplug the head and then use it as free standing recording interface.
