Line 6 DM4 Distortion Stompbox Modeler
Prepare to have your mind distorted
Why is it that something considered so undesirable in most contexts is the one thing guitarists desire most of all? Distortion: It’s the gritty heart of every player’s sound, whether your passion be for mild overdrive, singing sustain, flat-out raunch or precision metal meltdown. What’s that? Your heartstrings pine for all of those flavors? Welcome to the DM4 Distortion Modeler, the first and only pedal that lays virtually every classic distortion pedal at your feet (okay, 16 different models, to be precise!), while throwing in a few forward-thinking Line 6 specials to give you something to lust for down the line.
It’s just not practical to line up an MXR Micro Amp, a Chandler Tube Driver, an Ibanez TS-808 Tube Screamer, a Boss Metal Zone and twelve more coveted distortion boxes at a live gig down at Sparky’s Bar & Grill, and even if it was, you’d end up with more noise than a Manhattan traffic jam. No worries: The DM4 lets you dial in models based on all of these classic boxes and more, including the Arbiter Fuzz Face, Big Muff Pi and ProCo Rat, as well as the more “inside” Colorsound Overdriver and Vox Tone Bender from a simple and rugged steel housing with four metal footswitches that allow you to save and recall four distinct sounds in memory, with six front-panel parameter knobs that give you control over drive, frequency and more.
Whether you power up the DM4 using four “C” batteries (a set is included) or with the optional PX-2G adaptor (sold separately), you’ll be getting dirty while staying clean the 24-bit signal path means every nuance of those grungy classics comes through loud and clear. Wanna take your distortions to the outer limits? Check out the brilliant octave-fuzz of the line 6 models based on the Tychobrahe Octavia and PAiA Roctave Divider; hit a perfect swoosh with the Roland Jet Phaser model, or go completely over the top with the Line 6 Distortion, custom-made for mouthy musical mayhem.
In just a single box, you’ll find the torrid timbres that players like Jimmy Page, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Eddie Van Halen, Steve Lukather and others have made part of our collective consciousness, and the DM4 will give you the means to transform those classic tone recipes into something utterly your own. If distortion is your passion, the DM4 will be love at first bite.Available Models Boost/Comp

Line 6 Limited Warranty
Please be aware that your warranty is only valid in the region where you purchased your unit. For instance, if you buy your unit in Germany, then you must have the unit serviced in Germany, or within that region. If you live in South America, you will be interacting with the distributor for the country that you live in. It is for this reason that Line 6 recommends that you always buy your unit locally.
You will need to present your original, dated proof of purchase to have any warranty work performed at any Line 6 Authorized Service Center for repair.

Helix Extended Warranty
Customers who purchased a Helix Floor, Helix Rack, or Helix LT processor, or a Helix Control pedal in the United States and have a copy of the original purchase receipt qualify for the extended warranty. Customers who qualify will have a second year added to their current one-year Helix Warranty at no cost upon registration.
Registration is required within one year of the purchase date. You already qualify if you've registered your Helix and have a copy of the original purchase receipt. Otherwise, register your product at the Line 6 website and make sure you have a copy of the original purchase receipt.
Line 6 warranties transfer from one end user to another within the original warranty period (as long as the user has the original dated proof of purchase), but not when purchased second hand from a retail outlet.
If you purchase a Line 6 product sold as new from an authorized Line 6 retailer with an online storefront, the standard warranty applies as if it were purchased in a physical store. If you purchase a used unit from an individual on eBay, you do so at your own risk with no warranty offered by Line 6, unless the seller includes a copy of the original receipt to transfer the warranty to you.
The only way to redeem warranty on a used item is to have the original purchase receipt, dated within the product warranty period. So if you fail to get such a receipt, the manufacturers warranty will not be honored.
The Warranty does not cover:
- Damage from physical abuse such as dropping the unit, impact from hard objects or damage to external components as a result of negligence.
- Damage due to liquid contamination.
- Damage resulting from any use other than that it was intended for.
- Any unit that has been repaired or had an attempted repair made to it by unauthorized personnel.
- Damage due to incorrect connection, connection to faulty equipment or connection to faulty or incorrect power supplies.
- Damage in transit as a result of inadequate packaging or protection.
