    Like having your guitar-slinging hero personally set up your amp and effects.

    The Line 6 Spider III 75 Guitar Combo Amp delivers killer amplifier 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 120 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 tone 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 guitar speaker 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 their 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 '60s and early '70s 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 '60s 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 amplifier 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 time if you wanna get really crazy.

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

    Very Versatile Amp for the Money

    I perform as a one man band using automation and electronics for backing. I play classic rock, country, blues, and standards. I need a light weight amp that can deliver a wide variety of tones and effects in a compact, easy to use package. I hate using a lot of pedals with all the associated cords, etc.Of all my amps, my Fender Hot Rod Deluxe sounds the best, but I rarely use it due to its weight and the fact I need external pedals for effects. After trying different solid state amps (which are lighter than tube amps), I think the Line 6 Spider III 75 is the right choice for my needs.For starters, it offers a wide variety of tone settings due to the 12 amp models and the ability to tweak the tone and distortion in each model. The effects are also fairly good, and can be combined. While they do sound a bit overpowering as another reviwer pointed out, when played with other instruments or, in my case, with my backing sounds, the overpowering effect is somewhat diminished. The controls are easy to use - it's especially nice to be able to create a sound and assign a 12 character name to it. The construction appears to be of good quality, and the amp is light enough to carry without a lot of stress and strain. Volume-wise, it does well in small gigs. If you're in a band that cranks up the volume, the higher powered Spider III's might be a better choice.I ended up getting the pricy shortboard pedal - I think it's worth it because you can access all 36 presets directly from the board, see the name of the preset you're using in big letters, as well as turn effects on and off, activate the tuner, and have a volume and a waa waa pedal. The express pedal is also a good, less costly choice - you can also access all 36 presets with it - but you have to walk back to the amp each time you want to change to a different bank of presets.The real test of this amp, for me, was to see how close I could duplicatde the tone of my Hot Rod Deluxe. I was able to get fairly close - close enough to make me feel better about using the solid state Spider over the heavier, less versatile Hot Rod Deluxe. Of course, I can generate a host of tones the Hot Rod Deluxe can't, so in the end, I find the Spider to be the right amplifier. While it comes with a lot of amp models featuring distortion, there are also enough models that you can tweak to create nice jazz/blues sounds.At the price, it's a steal, and sort of justifies spending more to get the shortboard, or at least the express board. If you can't afford to own a lot of amps and pedals, then the Spider III may be all you need for wide tonal variety and effects.

    Line 6 has always been iffy on the sound of their cheap equipment, and this amp shows it. Although there are more amp models and such, the tones that they generate are kind of bland. Yeah, they have a resemblance to the nicer amps they emulate, but they don't feel like them, more like boring copies of them. The effects aren't that good, as there are NO LEVELS for them, only one parameter that is usually the speed. This makes them nonadjustably intense and unusable. A subtle chorus or phaser is not achievable, and you can't make subtle background delays and such. The speaker, although it is a celestion, is not that great. I am a very objective reviewer, but i don't like this amp, so i don't own it anymore. I do like line 6's pricier stuff, like the spider valve, which is essentially this amp as a tube combo or tube head, or the pod X3 live and stompbox modeler, but with this amp you don't get a quality amp for cheap. I would advise the Fender Super Champ XD for the more experienced ear, a 15W tube combo (pretty loud) with better and more varied modeling and a slightly wider array of effects (you adjust the levels on preset speeds, and there are multiple combinations, like chorus w/ delay or reverb and so on.

    Dont waste your money

    At first i really liked this amp, but as i matured as a musician... I realized the tone quality on this is terrible. Especially if your a blues player like my selfe. When you start using the more distorted effects, the feedback will drive you insane. Dont waste your money.

    alright

    By metalhed22

    from in a house

    Well here's the thing, this isn't exactly a fender deluxe twin reverb on the jazz tone scale of things--in other words, it sucks for jazz. But otherwise, it's pretty nice. You can get a sweet metal tone and a really gritty, driving blues solo tone. I like this amp a lot but it's not perfect. At high high volumes it feeds back incessantly and using the presets is nearly impossible. Most of the effects aren't very good, especially the flanger, but the reverb is nice. The chorus effect is standard and the delay is surprisingly good. So, overall good buy but not the best.

    AWESOME AMP

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    ive been playing for about 2 1/2 years now and i got this amp about 10months ago. it has any effect/feature you could want. the only negative aspect i found was that if u turn it up really loud the sound quality goes from 9/10 to 7/10. other than that great practice amp (whether alone or with a band) and great for medium sized gigs

    Piece of junk...

    By LeadBassist97

    from Leitchfield, KY

    My friend bought one of these. He thankfully only plays metal, because any other tone you try to create sounds horrible. It worked ok for the first couple of months, but ever since the thing overheats without a large fan right behind it. The tone turns muddy, and the volume starts to go up and down at random. Don't buy this thing just because it's cheap - save for something better so you, and your bassist, don't get stuck waiting for your amp to get done cooling down.

    Cool, But cool doesnt cut it

    By Ssteveo 420

    from pittsburgh

    I bought this amp about 6 months ago, it was cool for about a week, if you play rock or any type of metal, you better use just about two differant sounds if you buy this, i can get a heavy deep sound, and a sound with lots of treble thats it. And after about a month my light for the delay burned out on me. Dont buy this amp get something better.

    Excellent but requires a little tweaking

    By B Hilgers

    from Toronto

    i got this amp as a grad gift and i love it. however the factory presets on the amp models aren't amazing however with a bit of tweaking it can sound amazing the settings i have come to love are Drive at full Bass at 2-3, Mid at 3 and Treble at 7 then you can fool around with the effects. the 400 presets this thing comes with are pretty cool too but some of them sound the same as others. i also love how this amp has 36 slots to save your presets in. overall i really love this amp but i would recomend trying it out first before buying to make sure it has the kind of sound you want
