Some players like a lot of control over their tones and effects, some players are happy with simple straight ahead tone and effects combinations which sound great with the minimum amount of fuss. The Linebacker range is directed fairly and squarely at this later category of players.
The Linebacker LR5 offers the player 2 channels – a mic channel with it’s own level control, located on the rear panel and an instrument channel featuring 11 amp options consisting of 5 regular modes, 5 hot modes and one insane mode – giving plenty of choices of tones. Housed in a stylish compact cabinet and delivering 5 watts RMS into a custom designed 6.5" driver the unit can be powered by either the psu supplied or via batteries which is a great feature for those outdoor moments.
The cleanly laid out pre amp features the amp mode selector and overall volume control along with the dynamic contour control plus presence control for some serious tonal shaping. Next comes the amps FX section which allows for two effects to be selected at a time from four onboard modulation effects plus delay and reverbs. The effects combinations are automatically stored and recalled during channel switching.
Combine all this with an onboard tuner, a carrying strap that doubles as a guitar strap and an aux input and you have a great, easy to use guitar package at a killer price.
