It seems these have been shipped to Europe earlier than the US.

I'm very interested. Anyone have any reviews?

The Line 6 Tone Core Roto-machine was reviewed in the Jan 2006 edition of Guitarist Magazine in the UK. They gave it a Guitarist Choice sitcker so they liked it A LOT !!

PM me if you want more info

They gave it:-

Build quality 5/5
features 4.5/5
sound 5/5
value for money 5/5

"We liked - Nice to see the authentically 'organ styled' controls"
"We disliked - Absolutely nothing

Chris,

Cool, thanks for the update.

I actually bought one for myself last year. It sounds pretty good, but it does color the tone quite a bit. I'm also less than enamored of the footswitch action. It's got this kind of hard-soft thing to toggle the speed vs turning off the effect. Can get hairy in a dark club. If you come in with the fast speed on in the wrong place it can turn some heads (at least of your band members).

But, alas, in the true spirit of GAS: I have a Boss RT20 Rotary Speaker Simulator on order.

The reviews on this one are pretty glowing, and there are a couple of absolutely killer clips on the gearpage.

I'll sell whichever one I like the least.....maybe.....

Scott
