Expanded Arrangement Takes Effect October 1, 2016
MILWAUKEE - October 3, 2016 - Hal Leonard and Line 6 have made a joint announcement that effective October 1, 2016, Hal Leonard will be the exclusive distributor of all Line 6 products in the U.S.A. The deal coincides with the release of the new Line 6 Spider Amp V.
Line 6 has become a popular manufacturer thanks to their ability to engineer innovative, amazing-sounding gear that's ready to go right out of the box. They have a track record of designing category-defining products that shatter technical barriers, from the world's first digital modeling amp, to Variax digital modeling guitars, to a myriad of wireless accessories. The new Spider V promises to be the best-sounding edition of this industry leading amp-modeling line yet.
Senior Sales and Marketing Manager Brad Smith said, "It's an exciting time to become the exclusive US distributor for Line 6. With all their recent releases and their continued commitment to support their legacy products, Hal Leonard is ready to expand our dealer support and sales programs to make this a must-have line for all retail. Simply put, Line 6 and Hal Leonard can expand the guitar playing market. We are eager to work with retailers who share this vision."
Steve Bartkoski, Line 6 Vice President of Sales, North America, added, "Hal Leonard continues to be such an important extension of the greater Line 6 sales efforts. Both Line 6 and Hal Leonard are committed to strong partnerships with dealers that result in exemplary retail experiences for our shared customers. We are so excited to be introducing new and innovative products like Spider V and Relay G10 just in time for the holiday buying season. We are confident that these products with their innovative features and benefits will be very exciting to the end user and also tremendous areas of growth for retailers. Hal Leonard is a perfect distributor partner for us because they not only hit high marks at the logistics of shipping product but they also excel in providing retailers with the service, programs, and knowledge necessary to be successful in selling product."
