Line 6 technology in a easy-to-use and affordable format.

The Line 6 Spider III 30 delivers 4 amp models—clean, crunch, metal, and insane—that cover a broad range of essential rock sounds. These basic sounds can then be modified with a selection of effects. 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. The Spider III will give you the dialed-in tone you want in an instant. Less tweaking. More playing.

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.

Crunch: Red LED - This sound was crafted during Line 6's 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.

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.

Insane: Red LED - This model is Line 6's "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.

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 2 effects simultaneous)
Sweep Echo
Tape Echo

I bought one of these used recently as a sort of upgrade from my Behringer 15W. Absolutely love it. The sound on the clean channel is so crisp and sharp and I have been hooked on this thing ever since. The crunch channel ranges (you have to tweak the drive knob every time you switch channels as it reverts to default) from fairly clean right to almost metal if you tweak the knobs enough, and the metal and insane channels are icing on the cake.The extra effects are really nice, too. Took me a minute to figure out the echo tap button; bought this one used without a manual. All you have to do is tap it twice at the speed you want it to echo, set the echo volume with the knob and between that and reverb you can make it sound like you're in an auditorium or a tunnel. Quite neat. Chorus and phaser effects sound great and the tremolo effect works wonders for playing Crimson and Clover.The design of the amp seems fairly solid; I bought this out of a used guitar shop where the guys were always making it scream and knocking it over, and it doesn't seem any the worse for wear (I tested a brand new one for comparison; no difference). Also to mention, my guitar is a cheap Strat knockoff (Barracuda) and it still sounded awesome on this amp. Definitely a good buy if you want a killer practice amp.

Well I bought this amp awhile ago, and at first I thought it was really good untill I started playing other amps. This amp really doesn't have good tone at all. You can only get the highs and lows at of it, nothing in between. The distortion is alright, the only problem is it gets 10 times louder when you switch it to metal or insane. There is also a problem with the quality of this amp. I have had for about 4 months now, no problems until about a week ago, If i have any bass on past 3 on the knob there is a loud rattling noise that will not go away. Everything on this amp just feels really cheap. If your a hardcore metal fan, then maybe you would like this because of the distortion. But if your not, STAY AWAY FROM THIS AMP. Just because it has a lot effects doesn't mean its good.

Don't let the

By Stratomaster-y6wy7

from Northern IN

i was a little nervous at buying this, because i'm not a death metal guitarist, by any means. I'm more of a Secondhand Serenade guitarist, but I had heard great things about Line 6. I bought it from a friend of mine used, and i just gotta say : WOW! this thing has excellent presets(even though there are only 4), and the amp itself is insanely powerful! Don't let the 30 watts sign trick you, this thing packs a punch! I use a Digitech GNX3 guitar workstation for multi effects, and so I plug it into the Line 6 while it's on Clean, and it makes it sound even better than my old Peavey 25watt made it sound! even playing clean acoustic thru it, it's so crisp and awesome! Don't let the size fool you either, this thing's a beast!

I was a bit skeptical about purchasing this amp but thought I'd do myself a favor as it costs the same as the average college textbook. I've owned a lot of amps over the years, combos and stacks: countless crates, marshall avt, peavey 5150, madison, krank. READ: for the price, this thing is awesome!!! There is a reason line 6 is the best selling amp in America. It's because you can just plug in and play and it makes playing soo fun. Then if you want, mess with all the countless settings. To me this is a modern practice amp digital masterpiece. As for the negative reviews, well obviously this amp is geared more towards metal/rock/hardcore/punk players. If you're some sort of jazz aficiando or in search of some obscure tone freak or flat out broke then I guess you should look elsewhere. However getting a 'distortion pedal' is not a valid excuse if you at all understand the science behind the electric guitar. Anyway, clearly I love this thing. I shouldn't forget to mention how sleek the exterior looks, it'll shine in any location.


Dont buy into the hype

By Anonymous

This amps fine for messing around and the built in effects are nice but the clean sound is HORRIBLE. Just buy yourself a good cheap amp do some research on distortion pedals find one you like that way the sound can be more personal instead of the built in distortion which is either okay *crunch or way over the top *insane.Theres much better out there


Simply Amazing

By Angus Young Jr.-2Uyna

from Tampa, Florida

I love this amp. It's style and quality is outstanding along with the low price. With a good guitar (I use an Gibson SG, Strat, and an ESP LTD AX-50. they all sound great!) and a Monster cable you can't go wrong with this amp. I also love the way you can customize your own sound. Great for people writing their own songs.


This amp Rocks!

my 1st amp

By wvsteelmarine

from St. Albans, WV

i started playing about 6 months ago on a washburn f10s (great guitar) learning to play from an old friend that has played for many years. after learning enough to start to want to invest a little more in my lessons, i decided to buy a epi les paul goth and this amp, following my buddy's advice. i'm very happy with what i got for my money .. only complaint is the pre sets on the amp settings. after flipping through the manual i saw that this can be changed to what ever you want so no biggie......sounds amazing!!!!!


Great Amp

By Scabby

from new jersey

I love this amp!My favourite on this amp is the Insane feature;it really rocks and sounds really thick and crunchy.I noodle around with the phaser,tremelo and sweep echo,etc.They're cool too.Everything about this amp is good.I would definitely recommend this amp to anyone looking for an inexpensive amp,but still have a good quality amp.5/5!!



The Line 6 30 has great sound and quality, plays clear when you crank it up. The clean and crunch settings have a nice tone. The insane metal setting has a great overdrive sound. the effects are nice; such as, the chorus flange, reverb, tape echo and phaser. It is overall a great amp


Great Practice Amp!

By 657G1c8xo

from Undisclosed

I love My Spider III Amp, There is so much you can get out of this thing. First off, you've got your four channels, which go from very clean, to ultra sensitive high gain. Clean is very stripped, nothing to it. I usually run a delay or reverb with it to fill the empty space. Then cruch for Rock or punk. Then you've got Metal, which is exactly what it describes. It kind of sounds like the modern Metallica distortion, tight and dirty. Then Insane, which is high output, and responds to nearly every touch. Then you've got 6 effects, two of which can be run at a time. They've got a basic version of Just about everything. The single 12" speaker is great, and can produce enough volume to play over drums and fit in with a band. It's also great if you're trying to bang out song ideas, but you don't want to carry a pedal board, since it has pre-programed effects. All in all, this thing is useful, and it has never let me down.
