Line 6 Introduces Catalyst CX Combo Guitar Amplifiers

Line 6 Catalyst CX Family

Line 6 today introduced the Catalyst® CX family of guitar amplifiers, which feature Amp Voicings derived from the award-winning Helix® amp and effects processor. The three dual-channel Catalyst CX combos perform like traditional guitar amps, while providing the increased versatility of modern amplifiers.

“Catalyst CX amplifiers expand upon our original Catalyst amps,”  said Rick Gagliano, Director of Product Management, Line 6. “They double the number of available Amp Voicings from 6 to 12, and you can also now load any of the 24 effects into either of the two dedicated effects slots.”

The Lineup

The Catalyst CX family comprises the 200-watt Catalyst CX 200 2×12, the 100-watt Catalyst CX 100 1×12, and the 60-watt Catalyst CX 60 1×12. The amplifiers offer 12 Amp Voicings—ranging from pristine clean to modern high-gain—and each Amp Voicing is matched with a custom Boost type. There are also 24 HX®-quality effects spanning four effects categories. Additional features include sturdy construction, a Tap/Tuner button, an XLR line output, an effects loop, a Power Amp input for using Catalyst CX as a powered speaker, MIDI functionality, a 2-channel USB recording interface, and power output options.
