We're musicians and we’re technologists, with a passion for bringing you the next generation of gear that will inspire you to create, record and perform music in new ways. We have a long history designing category-defining products that push technical boundaries, so you can focus on your music.
We introduced the world’s first digital modeling amp, the AxSys 212, in 1996. We were behind the groundbreaking POD® multi-effect that launched in 1998, revolutionizing the industry with an easy way to record guitar that had great tone. Our Variax® guitars can do more than any other instrument in history, and we’ve led the analog-to-digital transition for guitar wireless with our Relay® products.
We haven't stopped, either. In 2015 Line 6 introduced the Helix® family, our new flagship guitar processor. Helix represents a major leap forward in guitar processing, as well as a new way of thinking about guitarists and their relationship to technology.
In 2014 Line 6 became a part of the Yamaha family, creating a network of global collaboration which, in 2017, led to the creation of the first-ever Guitar Division within Yamaha.
