As close as you can come with solid state, January 12, 2010

I started two years ago with a 15 watt Spider III, then along with other amps, bought a Spider Jam. I thought they were all great. Now they come out with Spider IV, and the difference in the sound is dramatic. They are getting very, very close to tube sound. So much so that for the lousy $299, compared to say $1000+ for 75 watts of tube, this is a real steal.
Loaded with features, and hundreds of presets, it has something for everyone. The Pitch Shifter and 18 available manual settings just add to the fun. And it will work with either generation of FBV pedalboard. Says so right in the manual. The only difference I see is with the generation II pedal you get a USB port.
Does it sound as creamy and smooth as my Peavey Delta Blues or Crate Palomino tube units? No, there is still a little digital overlay around in there. But most people who are looking for a great home based amp, or maybe a church or small gig amp, this is a WINNER and the price is just nuts. Forget the Peavy Vyper, this is hands down much better and you don’t have to sink another couple hundred in a pedal to get to all the presets like the Vyper.

This amp is great. It has seemingly endless modeling capabilities. It makes my playing sound professional. The greatest sounds I have had in 28 years of playing.

Great Versatile Amp, November 2, 2009

This review is from: Line 6 Spider IV 75 75-watt 1×12 Modeling Guitar Amplifier (Electronics)

I’ve owned several Line 6 products and this is probably the best yet. The tones from this amp are quite impressive, in particular the clean tones are amazing. I’ve used and owned several vintage and modern tube amps and I have to say this amp is one of the best I’ve played. Make no mistake, it’s not a Mesa or Bogner but for the money this is an amazing amp. The range of tones and effects that you get with this make it a no brainer for anyone who plays a variety of music. It will get as loud as you need it to so gigging with this amp is no problem.
