OVERVIEW

It's like having your guitar-slinging hero personally set up your amp and effects!

The Line 6 Spider III 150 Stereo Combo delivers killer amp and effects models, and a ton of presets created by some of the world's most notorious guitar stars from bands including 311, Thursday, Lacuna Coil, Hawthorne Heights, Slipknot, Ash, Albert Lee, Athlete, John 5, and many more!

Line 6 has also given the Spider III 150 another 150 song-based presets—sounds from such classics as No More Tears, Enter Sandman, Stinkfist, Back In Black, Bark at the Moon, and many more!. These presets combined with 7 quality effects models, make the Spider III a giant of tone that give you any sound you want, already dialed in. Now you can rule the stage with the Insane model with its truly massive gain or explore your sensitive side in the studio with the Clean model. It's all up to you.

New to the Spider III amp is a huge range of killer mid-gain guitar tones. A critical advancement was made to the sound and feel of the Spider III line when a discerning panel of artists focused in on the venerable "mid-gain" range of tone to deliver the complex, layered and dynamic amp tone we all appreciate from classic and boutique amps.

Amp Models:
Clean: Red LED - Select this Amp Model and adjust the tone controls to get crisp, amazing clean tones, great warm jazz tones, and all the high-end shimmer you'll need with a generous amount of bottom end.

Glassy: Green LED - Line 6 developed this Amp Model to emulate those late 60's and early 70's clean tones. It is like a 1973 Hiwatt Custom 100 with an extended tone control range and tightened up low end.

Twang: Red LED - This Amp Model draws on the mid 60's Fender® amps, including the blackface '65 Twin Reverb® and blackface '64 Deluxe Reverb®. It has classic glassy high-end tone, with some snap and bite.

Twin Twang: Green LED - This Amp Model is based on* a number of vintage tweed amps: a '53 Fender® tweed Deluxe Reverb®, '58 Fender® tweed Bassman® and a '60 Gibson® Explorer® to create a swingin' Rockabilly tone.

Blues: Red LED—Based on* a mix of a '65 Marshall® JTM-45, a '58 Fender® Bassman®, a '63 Fender® Vibroverb and a Supro®, this Amp Model slides between gritty swamp-infected cleans to syrupy smooth, walloping drive tones.

Class A: Green LED - This Amp Model is based on* a fawn Vox® AC-30 amplifier with an updated and expanded tone control circuit. It captures that early British pop rock tone that the Beatles and the Stones are so well known for.

Crunch: Red LED - This sound was crafted from studies of the '68 Marshall® Plexi 50 Watt. This type of Marshall® amp was used by a number of early metal bands. Crunch provides a wider range of tone control settings than the original Marshall® amp had.

On Fire: Green LED - This Amp Model is based on a '68 Marshall® Plexi 100 watt with a few added extras; The combination of a Variac and the jumped input channels creates that infamous brown sound.

Metal: Red LED - This Amp Model is based on the Mesa/Boogie® Dual Rectifier®. Use this Amp Model to get a tight and punchy, high gain Metal sound.

Spinal Puppet: Green LED - This sound was created to be an aggressive high gain Amp Model with a unique Mid control that will sweep though an entire spectrum of tone on one knob. The Mid knob for this Amp Model changes the character of the distortion. When set to minimum, the distortion exhibits Fuzz pedal characteristics. When the Mid is set to noon, it mimics the creamy modern high gain amp tones. And when the Mid knob is turned up to max, it's very much reminiscent of that Class A sound.

Insane: Red LED - This model is a "dialed in for shredding" version based on* the Mesa/Boogie® Dual Rectifier® red channel. It combines the intensity and impact of Metal Red, but delivers more midrange and teeth for that bone-crushing, brain piercing insane grind.

80s Solo: Green LED - The goal with Insane is to provide you with as much input gain distortion as possible short of complete meltdown. You get an obscene helping of distortion, while still retaining tonal definition and character.


Effects:
A great amp isn't the only part of a great guitar sound. With Smart Control FX, an exclusive Line 6 feature that automatically dials in different effect parameters, you spend more time playing and less time tweaking. Simply find the effect that you want, turn the knob to your desired intensity, and you're done. You can even use multiple effects at the same if you wanna get really crazy.

Effects Models (Up to 3 effects simultaneous)
Phaser
Chorus/Flanger
Tremolo
Sweep Echo
Tape Echo
Reverb

Ins & Outs
When you're playing with your band on stage just drag the Spider III on stage and crank it up. When it comes time to record, use the headphone/direct out and plug it straight into the mixing board for world-class POD® 2.0 direct tone used in pro studios and stages everywhere! You can also use the same out with headphones for practicing in your bedroom. Want to play along with your favorite songs? Plug into the CD/MP3 input and you're good to go.

I was a little nervous about ordering an amp over the internet, but it came in perfect condition. No worries! The amp itself is really light. I probably only weighs 30lbs. Strangly enough, the first thing I did after getting the amp out of the box was break out the manual. I figured since it had so many features I better go by the book. The manual leaves much to be desired. I wish it had more info on the different presets, but it only tells of the basic functions.I sat down with the amp last night and jammed for a few hours. About the presets, there are a LOT of them. The artist contributions are fairly high quality. The factory loaded user presets are a little flimsy. The first tone that popped up was Back in Black and it actually made me laugh. I pretty much trashed or tweaked most of the user presets that came loaded on it to my liking. There are a couple of novelty tones that are pretty fun to mess around with.One thing I truely love about this amp is how I can really dial in almost any kind of distortion I want. To me the Spider series really leans toward the heavy distortion amp models(which I like). The 3rd generation Spiders introduced more "mid-gain" amp tones to try and balance the spectrum of sound this amp can throw out. If you already had a Spider II though I'd just stick with that until maybe the gen Spider. All in all a good amp for jamming, practice, and small gigs.

if your looking for something new then this is a cool amp. however, compared to this things older brother the spider II this is total crap, all the presets are nice but dont sound like the song they are trying to imitate. i own a line 6 spider II and the quality is vastly superior, the clean is clean, the insane, well the neighbors arent too happy about it, so its awesome. The spider 3's insane sounded alot tamer, like a lion that lost its roar, kinda sad really. the lights on it are also really annoying, the spider II's lights are those small LED's while these things are too big, in a dark room they overpower and distract, in a light room, they are too week. the tap tempo is also all weird, once you set a tempo if you press it once it adds it in to the current tempo, no, on the spider II if you press it once you get your full 2.5 seconds thats so awesome.line 6 is awesome and im a die hard line 6'er but this amp is horrible.if you want something better, get a spider II, its all the good stuff plus none of this extra junk they added on.

Great Amp for the money

By G-echoman

from Boulder, CO

See all my reviews

I was using a Line 6 Spider 11 75/1-12 for a few years and thought I needed an upgrade. I found this 150 slightly used and my only complaint is "way too many choices for tones" and not being able to find them when I like what I find. This amp is loud and clear. I have had no trouble at any volume. I've been playing for over 20 years and in many venues. This amp was chosen for its value, effects, weight, and because I already had one and knew how great it sounds. I played next to a Twin Reverb and no trouble keeping up and getting comments on the sound. After reading the review by the Sound Guy, I think he just doesn't know how to get the most from this amp.

save yourself!

By Epiphan4

DO NOT BUY THIS AMP! or any other Line 6 products for that matter. It may look cool, but buy a little tube amp or a nice solid state cuz this is a total waste of money. it gets a 3 on features because of all the effects it has, even though though they are ALL terrible. Please do not buy this amp ever

Junk!!!!!!!

By JV-e4DyP

from Gorham, NH

seriously its not that great my first one that i got was faulty and I've heard about of alot of people having a difficult time. and another thing is that its annoying there is constantly lights flashing and its very distracting. so if you want an amp that is easy to use and is good quality for your money pretty much anything is better than this. in the words of a good friend of mine. ITS JUNK!!!!!!!

I have had this amp for 2 weeks and i'm loving it to death. I have already played one gig and everyone was amazed with sound and quality. This is the best amp I could have asked for.

...my dream amp...

By Wert_The_Shredder

from Ontario, Canada

I baught this amp about 6 days ago and I love it. The presets are amazing, the sound of the 12" Celestions are outstanding, and even the little turner that line 6 through in the amp is amazing. Not only can you play the exact sound of the pro's, you can make your own sounds to become a pro yourself. I also baught the FBV express pedal to go with this amp, and the wah on that thing is outstanding for such a low price. The price pf the amp is GREAT and the value is even better. If you are serious about playing guitar, buy this amplifeir tomorrow.

GREAT Amp!

By gorgorthebeast

from Houma, LA

See all my reviews

Wow...GREAT amp. I couldnt decide either to get this, or the Mesa/Boogie Lonestar. They were both priced the same but this amp is obviously much bigger. Somehow i chose this over that and couldn't be happier. There's hundreds of presets to choose from, save-able presets, and about a dozen amp model settings. My only problem is that i didnt think it would be that heavy until i hulled it into the back of the truck. Thats not really a problem if you have a sound guy though. I recomend getting the line 6 footpedal with the 4 foot switchs and wah pedal built in. I bought a digitech grunge pedal along with this and i couldnt tell the difference between it on or off connected to the amp! talk about great distortion!

Limited Stereo

By Jeff-ymrWh

from Salt Lake City, UT

See all my reviews

I know most consider negative reviews being from people who are hard to please. Well I have written many rewiews and this is my first bad review. First off the overall sound I get from this amp is pretty decent as far as distortion is concerned. Where this amp falls short is in the stereo arena. The stereo effects are very limited and substandard in my opinion, but worst of all, there is no effects loop . In a nutshell, you can't plug in your own stereo effects and get them back in stereo. Yes there is a stereo line in for your I-pod, but it goes through a separate amplifier that is much weaker than the main amp. My suggestion: If you buy a stereo amp, make sure it has an effects loop. Either that or get two separate amps to run off your effects.

Terrible Tone seekers only...

By Kommi1974

from Duluth, MN

This amp has the worst tone you can imagine. Stale, digital and just plain awful tones. DO yourself a favor and stay away. Solid State just does not cut it. Get a good tub amp and you will never go back. This amp is going. This amp does nothing well and you could spend an afternoon even trying to get a sound that is borderline acceptable. The only thing this amp is good at is pestering your neighbors as it is god awful loud and not in a good way.

SICK AMP!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I bought this amp roughly a year ago and when I bought it I was running about seven different pedals Through it from Distortion to EQ (not what this amp was bulit for), so I never really got a great sound out of it. And I had never tried to mess with the on-board amp channels or effects, Then I decided "Why not" and when I did I was blown away. The amp Channels are awesome, The effects weren't amazing but a great feature And it allows you to save up to 36 different settings which is Great. It's way more convinient then hauling around a huge box of pedals. So all in all Great Amp.

Awesome Amp!

By Delta Dave

from San Antonio Texas

By far this is th ebest amp I have used in live shows. It has very easy to use presets, or you can mix your own effects easily. No need for foot pedals any longer. I purchased the amp being a little timid, but I would not choose anything else to play on after playing Line 6 products. You WILL NOT go wrong by buying this amp. You get way more bang for your buck, way more quality sound, way more wattage, and way more effects for what you pay for it. I would recommend this amp to anyone. I use it live, even in large venues. It has way more than enough power! It works great for practice and for studio recordings as well. Thumbs up to this amp!!!

Good Deal for All, But Fantastic for Metal Heads

By Gruesome

from Dayton Ohio

See all my reviews

I had been thinking about buying one of these for a few months after testing one out at the store, so when I saw the refurbs being offered for a discount I snatched one up right quick.Anyway, I've had this amp for about a week. I'm currently playing an Epi Explorer with stock pick-ups and it screams on the Metal and Insane settings. I imagine it only gets better from there if playing with active pick-ups. With a little tweaking, you should be able to get any sound you want out of this. It's also LOUD. Enough power for gigs as a stand-alone -- but easily hooked up to power a 4x12 cab, if you have one. It's not a tube-amp - so don't buy this if you simply have to have that tube-amp tone. It'll come close, but if you HAVE to have it, you are going to be disappointed. Bottom line: for the money you CAN'T beat the features this thing offers. You are basically purchasing a 150-watt solid-state power-amp, rack-mounted effects unit and a 2X12 cab for peanuts. It does most styles pretty well, but it's real strength is the solid-state Metal tone (a la Pantera) that me and everybody else used to spend thousands on back in the 90s by purchasing expensive multiple rack-mounted components.

Awesome amp

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I personally love this amp. The presets sound awesome, and the only problem is, sometimes they sound too distorted, but thats not a problem at all really, the sound is close enough to make up for it. Volume is great, I used it for a gig recently and could overpower the carnival rides next to us. Wonderful amp, great buy

Great AMP

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I just recieved this amp yesterday and what can I say, it's everything I hoped it would be and more. I haven't even begun to make it through all the presets though, everytime I switch it sounds so good I end up staying on it. I don't think the sound clips from Line 6 do the actual tones justice. You have to hear this thing for real to realize how great it sounds. And loud is an understatement, I can't get it past half yet as I live in an apartment. This amp is going to provide alot of playing pleasure, just what I was looking for. Buy it, you won't be sorry. And as for this company, AWESOME! The only place to order from.

Almost perfect

By FrattyLawyer

from Sulphur, Louisiana

See all my reviews

This is a fantastic amp. The concept of modeling is the nearest to perfection here than at any place in the music world. This amp has the ability to play hard metal, soften up for some blues, and the trip out on some Floyd. This will sound as good with a Standard strat running through it as it will putting a USA Jackson King V in it. The output is enough for small gigs, making it a studio amp as well as a gigging amp.

Just an amazing amp. Too many features to list. If you like rock or metal or even classic rock, this is the amp for you! I've never even had the thing up past 5 cause it's so loud. You won't be sorry for buying it.

line 6

By goodfella

from the south

i heard the line 6 spider 2 someone had playing with us awhile back and liked it so i got this one.I wanted a mesa boogie but took a chance and it does the job.Sounds great by itself but i pre amped it through a old fender m80 on a clean channel and ran that through a marshall 4x12 and a ada 4x12 split stack and its amazing for metal sounds, any of the crunch presets sound great.By itself you could play along with any 4x12 stack and sound just as loud and it doesnt get thin.

Wow...

By Jimmy-KPnUZ

from Im not telling you that

This amp has probably the greatest effects out there. Even though the smaller one is more worth getting, if you dont really have a problem with the money get it. Some of the effects have redundancy, however, for example tremolo. Pray to god you dont have tremolo on for an entire song, and going back to turn it off when needed is quasi-awkward. The drive effects are great though, and is cleaner drive as compared to other amps which have a dirtier drive. I recommend this amp for live shows due to its width.

Thank you Jesus

By Johnny B.-qx-iU

This is the best amp by far in this price range. I also have a Vox valvetronix and this baby just blows it out of the water. The clean is really nice and the insane setting is just that. You can get all kinds of sounds out of it. The only problem I've had is that there are some "Classic songs" that they left out of the presets (Iron man, Thunderstruck, Smells Like Teen Spirit, etc.) but there are 40 channels that you can set yourself so you can make your own. The two Celestions sound great and man are they loud. I can't turn it up past about 4 before I fear breaking glass. Best amp I've ever owned hands down.
