I've been playing electric for about 15 years, [not a superb guitarist] but after playing & purchacing this little monster, I was in LOVE! This may not be the amp for everyone, and reviews vary, but if you want an overall practice amp with great tone, easy to use features and unreal distortion and cool basic effects without all the damn tweaking, this might be the amp you seek. This thing is frickin' loud for it's size, and the celestion speakers are excellent. I've tried alot of amps and after years of searching for just the right amp to sit on Friday nights at home w/a 6 pack to jam along with anything from Zeppelin to ZZ to Rush to Priest to Megadeth to Slayer to NIN...and lots of other jams! The knobs are smooth & easy to access, tone is almost dead on whatever I'm looking for quickly, the presets can be changed by a push and hold of a button saves your preset. Four amp models, basic easy to use effects which ARE very good [it's a Line 6, ya'all!] for such an amp...besides, you can always buy and use whatever effects you like anyway...I actually stopped using all my pedals for basic home sit around practice fun. The qualtiy of construction is great too, this amp is solid! These guys know what they are doing and seemed to have read my mind as far as what I use it for...brilliant! Plus, it IS loud enough for basic jam night practice, you might just need to mic it through your PA...which you should be doing for gig practice anyway! Drawbacks...all effects can't be used at once, effects parameters can't be adjusted much, the delay is short but sweet, reverb is decent,I don't use the phaser too much, but it's good, flanger is nice and the tremelo is also one I'd trade for say, a more modulated 'wah' sound and the volume gets so loud so quick, it's a bit touchy when switching without saving presets...careful in your apt., you might just startle your neighbors! I love this little spider II...I play guitar every day now and I love it's ease of use...and the overall channel noise is very low for an amp at this price...which is what I wanted in an amp all along. I only gave it a 9 because I really wanted the twin 12, but didn't need the extra power all that often...so it's a ten to me in reality! I won't name names, but don't waste your money (like I did) on the other amp makers for a practice amp...if you want great sound, don't have tons of $$$ and just need a good 30 watt for what I use it for [personal jam night fun and practice playing mostly rock & metal] THIS is the amp you seek...my playing has improved ALOT too, BTW ;)And I have EMG 81's & 85's in one guitar and Seymour Duncan buck shot & scorcher in another guitar and it sounds perfect, sweet and clean to my ears...[ dude said his Gibson SG overloaded it...whatev dude! ] Line 6 is my fave amp makers now. Oh yeah, it has no line out for speaker monitor or piggybacking :( But does have a 1/8th inch input jack for connecting your CD/IPOD, what have you... :)

I ordered this amp and was super happy with it. It arrived on time and in great shape. At higher volumes it clipped, but overall, a good solid amp, for 2 months. Right at the 2 month mark it developed a loud hum, no control setting changes, guitar changes or anything effect the volume of the hum, just constant noise as if something inside is toasted. I checked the fuse, and no problem there. I recommend a fender frontman series amp if this is the wattage you are looking for, as I have owned a 25R for 3 years with no problems with it. My next amp will be a Behrenger I beleive, as I am definitely done with line 6 products. For this price you can definitely do better.

I just got mine today. I had tried it a few weeks before with an Epiphone Les Paul Junior, and it sounded great. I was completely blown away when I plugged in my Ibanez at home. The four channel presets are nice and you can save your own presets for each channel. One thing I really loved was the effects, which are very versatile and sound excellent. If you like to achieve crazy sounds or lots of delay, you might want to get some pedals. The Chorus/Flanger effect is my favorite. I can get it to sound just right for the intro to "Come As You Are." Its also easy to get the tremelo to sound like the intro for "Boulevard Of Broken Dreams." I haven't turned it up past about 3 or 4 yet, but even there it is pretty loud. Overall this is a great amp, and I'll definitely be using it for years to come.
I really don't know where this amp gets it's good reputation from. No one I know likes Line 6, but I gave it a try anyway. It sounds all around awful. The distortion sounds fizzy, and has no mid level or bass to it, the clean mode sounds just awful, has no treble, and I'm either left with this empty, dead sounding tone, or a hollow, squalorous roar that sounds like you could knock it over by blowing at it. The effects sound cheap and cruddy(the echo effects sound absolutely horrible). I really can't recommend this amp to anyone looking for any good tone at all.
I have owned marshalls and other tube amp heads and I swear this sounds better than any I have had, or at least just as good. I have been playing a long time and this technology is amazing - it's like getting a ferarri for a 10th the price. It may not sound exactly like the amps it models but it sounds great - it has wicked bite and singing mids and highs - very smooth in the high end and raspy, unruly in the lows and mids and it responds very nicely to picking dynamics. I'm surprised that I love this so much because I tried the pod 2 awhile back and wasn't that thrilled, I liked the v-amp better, at least for metal.
This amp has a nice sound, great speaker it's loud and has some cool memory pre-set features not offered in other brands; pretty smart Line 6. This amp has 4 channels which have been preprogramed to factory settings by Line 6. The clean channel has the tremblo automatically tuned in heavy so when you select that channel it echos way to much. Its annoying because you have to physically remove the effects then choose the desired sound on that channel. The up side of this is you can choose the settings you like and this amp has the capability to remember your settings when you follow the directions in the manual and change the actual preprogramed settings from factory; cool concept if your a little technical and take your time and reprogram all 4 channels to your taste in sound rather than what Line 6 believes you may want. All the other channels each have effects preprogramed so you can actually do this for all 4 channels. I was impressed and confused at the same time, go figure. This amp must have a memory chip inside it. This was my first Line 6 amp and it's pretty impressive but not the best choice for anyone whom dosen't like to read owners manuals, hee hee.
Ive owned this thing for almost 2 years now. This amp is a nice effects amp and it has great speakers that sounds for like a 50 wat amp if you put the volume up to like 7 on both channel and master.The Spider II has 4 different channels: Clean, Crunch, Metal, and Insane.The clean is the most horrible thing they could ever do. The sound is ok, but it keeps on echoing, which makes your riffs sound really crappy. I just leave this alone, and I used the Crunch with no drive as a clean. The crunch effect is a really good choice for a combo amp as a lot of people like the 70's and 80's rock like Zeppelin and it also has this Aerosmith sound.Since you have Insane to do your hardrocking stuff, that makes the metal channel useless. It DEFINATElY doesn't sound like metallica. The Insane channel is the best thing about this amp. It has good sustain and has the sound 2nd to Marshall amps. I personnally like the Insane the best, and use Crunch for my clean chaneel, even though i like the crunch a lot for the classic rock stuff.Then there are those smart control effects. I like the chorus flange and the phaser, the phaser gives me a similar sound to unchained. the tremolo is also useful but I don't use it much. I also think the tape echo is good, but the sweep echo and reverb suck completely. The tap delay time effect also sucks cuase it delays your already echoing clean channel. Buy this amp for its good stuff and don't pay attention to the useless stuff. It'll be like a Crate amp with a few better effects.
I've had this amp for 5 months now, and have had no problems with it. Some people complain about delay and volume problems when switching channels - well guess what...All 4 channels are set at different factory levels (along with different effects settings). It doesn't take a genius to figure this out. It took me only a few moments to delete all the factory settings, and maintain a constant volume level between the channels. In fact, the clean channel was so loaded with factory effects, that I didn't even recognize it when I was through - it really is "clean" now. There are also 2 secrets that you won't find (unless you actually read the manual)...the first is the noise-gate noise reduction feature, and the second is the distortion boost - both which work quite well. I use this amp mainly with my Epi-Les Paul and it sounds great. It is not a tube amp, but it comes close.
i got this amp about a week ago before i got my new guitar. The channels all sound pretty good and the speaker has alot of bass and it can go really loud. The effects are kinda gay, id rather save up for stomp boxes or a multi effect.The effects just arent that customizable, you cant change the modulation speed. Aside from that the bass control nob makes a fuzzy sound when i turn it on the metal channel. BUT the one thing that make me resent buying this is that it doesnt respond well to how you play. I can play soft or hard and i cant hear any real difference in how the amp comes accross, its really annoying.Id say its a good first amp, it has alot of different sounds to choose from, sounds good, and has a couple effects. But if you have already developed a style of your own and need a responsive amp the stay away from this amp, it will only dissapoint you.
I've owned this amp for about three years and it's possibly the best value in an amplifier I've encountered yet. Don't let the 30-watt output rating fool you; this thing has tons of volume and cutting power! Dial in anything higer than about '4' on the master volume and you risk giving yourself a new hairdo if you're within five feet of it! I love the four preset sounds...the only one I've changed is the 'clean' setting: I put in more reverb and turned off the phaser effect. Also, the FBV-2 footswitch is a must-have item for this box. Loud, lightweight and inexpensive! Get this amp!
This is my first combo, and I couldn't have waited for a better peice of equipment. The band I work with has a drummer that plays like he's machine-gunner in NAM. Now I have to turn myself down alot,HaHa.(in a basement with only 30 watts)$$$/Beautiful FX. must have
I love this amp at the beginning it was hard to figure out with all the effects but now that i figured it out it is awesome. Especially the price the price is great it has 7 effects on it and it is a great price. i suggest this amp to anyone who likes a lot of reverb and a lot of different effects in their music.
This is a very nice practice amp, and for what it comes with the price is pretty sweet. I've been using this amp for about 6 months now. When i first got it i was amazed of how loud it was. The effects are really a nice feature to this amp especially, from the clean channel to insane and they're decently customizable to get the sound you want. I would reccomend this to any beginner or intermediate player, just be ready to wake the neighbors. Just make sure you have a decent guitar to go with this.
This amp is sweet the price the effects you dont even need an extortion pedal you have everything you need right there on the amp. You might want a footswitch pedal if you are playing and you need to change during a song and thats just 75 more dollars its an awesome amp at an awesome price. It is also the loudest thirty watt amp I have ever heard.
This amp is by far the best amp I have ever owned, this coming from a guy who has played a Marshall Half-stack, the features on this amp blow my mind away, and the tone is unbelievable, I felt like I was robbing Line 6 because of the quality and the price of this amp, if need a practice amp or a gig amp, don't hesitate to look toward this amps direction
I have to say this Line 6 Spider II 30 watt amp is a great work. It has several features that are very easy to use and it isn't too heavy to move if needed. You can use it to jam while playing with drums and other instruments and you can use it just to practice alone. It has a good quality box covering, great speaker and sounds good overall. Distortion, crunch, clean and insane (very heavy) sounds are great and it is well worth the price!
I bought this a month or two ago, and it's great. A wide variety of tones, from sparkly clean to pulverizing distortion. The amp is suprisingly loud for a 30 watt one speaker amp. I have played live a few times and it always cuts through my bass player, backup guitarist, drummer and our singer. The FBV4 (or a different footswitch) is a must if you play live because the buttons on the amp are small and hard to find if you're playing a dark stage. The only thing that I don't like about it is that the "Metal" channel's volume isn't as high as the crunch or insane channel when the volume is maxed out. I'm not sure if its just on mine but it's a pain. But that could work, like use the metal channel and then the insane for a solo or something. The effects are okay, but the only ones I use are the delays and sometimes the reverb. The modulation isn't great, mainly because chorus and flanger are in one spot on the wheel so you have to hit past the middle to a chorus sound. Great amp and great tone, definitly worth getting, especially for this price.
Back in 1980, I replaced the P-90s in my SG Pro with DiMarzio DLX-1 distortion humbuckers. Last week, my new Spider II 30 arrived and I finally got the sound I've been looking for since I hotrodded my SG. This little amp is great-sounding and versatile. I've gotten smooth jazz tones, extreme shred and everything between. Haven't tried it with my Tele yet but I see no reason why Spider II won't deliver just as well when I do. I'd recommend this little jewel to anyone on a budget who's looking for a quality, cutting-edge tech amp.
This is a nice little practice amp. I just got mine a few days ago, along with a Tak Matsumoto Elitist Les Paul, and I am in love with its tone. It produces shimmering cleans and muscular drive--but the effects sound a little processed (read: horrible delay!). Strong humbuckers sound best with this amp; my Jackson Dinky sounds kinda blah (a mix of single-coils and a humbucker), but my aforementioned Les Paul seemed to be a perfect match. The learning curve for tone setting is rather steep, so make sure to set some extra time aside to experiment. Also, get the foot controller (FBV Express); even though its configuration is a little awkward, it makes channel switching a lot easier. If you are a metalhead looking for an around-the house amp, buy this thing; if you play jazz,country, or the blues exclusively, look elsewhere.
THIS AMP ROX! i bought it about 2 months ago and i love it. the effects are incredible and even better, there is no buzz or background noise.it sounds and looks awesome.
I bought this thinking that with a 12 inch speaker, it should be able to keep up with a drummer. Well it can if you don't like being really really loud and it still sound ok, like you should. The channels are nice, all usable. There is a pause when switching channels, just to let you know. When you turn it up a lot the speaker will start to sound like a horn, which amazed me that only 30 w could make it do that. if you want a loud sound that sounds good, get an amp that is too big and too loud, and just don't turn it up full blast. all in all, if you want to use it for jamming alone or with just other guitarist, go for it it sounds amazing, otherwise go bigger.
I was looking for a 15-25 lb amp that would be easier to lug around for jam sessions so I bought this and a couple days later, bought the Vox AD30VT because I was a bit unhappy with the Lin 6. Actually, I wasn't really that disappointed... more than anything, I couldn't get a 'clean sound that would overdrive when picked hard' type of sound which is what I really like.On the 4 channels, the clean channel is dull and lifeless. I'm used to older Fenders and this is their strong suit. The Line 6 has a clean channel, but that's about it. It sounds about like plugging directly into a board. The Crunch is not impressive either. There is no Rolling Stones sound in here! I spent hours trying to get the sound that it took two seconds to get with the Vox. No comparison. If you want that 'on edge of breakup sound', the Line 6 is NOT the amp for you.The Metal channel is OK, but I suspect most users will skip it. The Insane channel is actually very decent with LOTS of sustain. With either a bridge humbucker or even a bridge single coil, I felt very nimble doing basic soloing. To be honest, it was confidence inspiring and is probably slightly better than the best super overdriven Vox channels.On the effects, again... there's no comparison and the Vox wins hands down. With the Line 6, you basically have about 2% control over the effect and the actual sound quality is just radically better with the Vox. With the Line 6, I couldn't even get a nice roomy reverb sound going at all. On the other hand, with the Line 6, the effects section is VERY easy to use.At this moment, the Vox costs $90 more than the Line 6. If you are over 16 years old and want more than just the pure sustain from the Insane channel of the Line 6, I'd HIGHLY reommend the Vox over the Line 6. If you can swing it, it'll probably the best $90 you spend on your sound.
