OVERVIEW

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

The Line 6 Spider III HD150 Guitar Amplifier Head 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 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 amp head 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 Line 6 Spider III 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. We wanted an Amp Model that has that 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 amplifier 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

My rhythm guitarist and I (I play lead guitar) recently went to check this amp out. We have both been wanting to get the same amp so our guitar sound is more unified sounding. We've been looking at Line 6 for quite a while. We both play tube amps right now, but both of us are looking for more versatility and more aggressive guitar sounds. The four channels work great for me so I can have a really good clean sound, my rhythm guitarist and I can set our rhythm tones similar and at the same volume and then I can also have a separate channel for my guitar solos and leads that can be louder so I'm not constantly drowning out his guitar sound and so the rhythms and our harmonizing are the same level live! There all the basic effects built in, which I don't use a whole lot of effects except for chorus and reverb on my clean channel; but they were still useful and sounded good and it is convenient because they are right their if you ever need them, instead of having to constantly go buy new pedals and make your pedalboard longer, noisier, create signal loss and much more of a hassle to lug around to shows and to set up! You can also record direct with this which is helpful in making studio time more efficient and smooth! Granted these aren't Vettas or Vetta 2's; but I think they definately sound more professional and have more features than you would expect from an amp costing this much. So these will be good replacements for what we need and want and maybe someday we can get some Vetta 2 heads! So go try it out for yourself, it's not everyones cup of tea but they definately rocked hard for my rhythm guitarist and I! They packed quite a punch suprisingly, plus they were louder than I expected (especially for a solid state amp). The clean tones were warm, bright and sounded really great. The distortions were surprisingly clear and over the top in the gain section! For the style of speed/thrash/death metal we play we need really articulate tones so you can hear all our speed picking and tricky riff work! They sound similar to tube amps, warmer than most solid state amps I've ever played. Some solid state amps can get kinda harsh sounding when in full blown metal meltdown mode! I can tell these can get kinda harsh if you let them, but if you take some time to EQ your tone and adjust the distortion just right, you'll get a pretty organic sounding crunch sound that is just brutal, punchy, loud, percussive and total useful and doesn't sound like garbage! Go check them out! They definately suprised us!

I have been a Metal musician for 8 years and I am the lead in my band. I absolutely loved the Spider II head and it is my favorite of 5 heads that I own. I was appalled to find that the Spider III was so awful in comparison. The spider II head was the amp of choice when I test out new gear in music stores but they phased this out to the Spider III. I went through all the presets and found that none of them are satisfactory. You are supposed to get signature sounds which fall completely short of their mark. Line 6 is known for it's metal tones and this one just disappoints. I thought that it wouldn't be so bad if I could shape the tone to my liking- Not so. I couldn't shape the tone to a decent sound for the life of me. I have no bias, I had a lot of hope for the new line of product. I would suggest the Spider/ Spider II and the Uber metal pedal if you want a good sound from a line 6 product.

Line 6 Spider III HD 150 Modeling Head

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Line 6 Spider III HD150 75Wx2 Guitar Amp Head:

I have only played on this amp, but I own the Spider II HD 150, which is basically the same thing. There is a little bit of a difference in sound, but on the SPider II I've been able to get any sound I've wanted, including sounds very close to a tube amp. The added effects is a bonus. Fromwhat I've played on the Spider III, all that is the same, so it is still as great as the Spider III have heard about the amp dying after only a short amount of time being used. The trick to preventing that on these is not to have the master over 5 if the channel volume is over 5. What I do is I either set channel volume for 5 and then master to about 6-8. Master on 3 or 4 and channel up to 6-8 also sounds good. Either way prevents the burning out.

If you want that Studio Tone...

By Stormhelm

Comments about Line 6 Spider III HD150 75Wx2 Guitar Amp Head:

I don't know what it is about line 6, but whoever is making these things must LOVE METAL, as the tones seem to be dead on for any metal lover. I went through several stacks, tried out the Mesa Dual and Triple Rectifier, Marshall JCM-900, Line 6 Valve, and really was happy when I came to this amp and cab! By no means am I saying its superior or better quality, but the tone just fit, and rocked!

Great So Far

Comments about Line 6 Spider III HD150 75Wx2 Guitar Amp Head:

I just recently took back a Vox AD120VTX because I just felt it wasn't the right sound. I decided to try the new spider III I read about. I was not disappointed so I bought it and figured I'd give it a try on stage. I was very happy w/ the sound as was my band. Even the sound guy made a comment that he really thought it had a great sound. I should point out that I purchased a Marshall 1960A cab to go with it if you think that matters. That's nothing negative on the Line 6 cabs ...I guess I kinda always wanted a Marshall cab. That being said ... so far I am very pleased.

head shoered out during first song

By cftjo

from schoharie, ny

Comments about Line 6 Spider III HD150 75Wx2 Guitar Amp Head:

I researched a combo stack for about a month. Between a marshall and line 6. Line 6 would save me time and money on effects. During Pantera's cowboys from hell which the sound at 1/4 sounds great. The amp head shorts out. I turn off power to amp head and nothing. I unplug it from wall outlet and the amp works again. So once Again I start to play Ozzy crazt train and the amp head shorts out. I will try one more time after I take head in for return. Love the sound if it works.

Comments about Line 6 Spider III HD150 75Wx2 Guitar Amp Head:

I recently bought the head(and a marshall cab) off a friend who wanted to upgrade his gear. The night i got it, i spent 5 hours testing it out and i gotta say, its amaing. Just the the tones knobs(treble, bass, ect..) are great by themselves. I messed around with the delays and flanges and they are fantastic sounding. Im not even going to dive into the presets because they are dead accurate to the songs they correspond to. BUY IT

People who say it got up in smoke must of set up the amp in a really bad way with improper cabling, not Line 6's fault! Great sound, good effects and great distortion!

Amp dies

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Line 6 Spider III HD150 75Wx2 Guitar Amp Head:

I and a friend bought the amp. In a rehearsal the amp of my friend died after 2,5 hours of playing. He got back to the shop and got a new one, and a few days later in the next rehearsal my amp died. Suddenly it quits, and after that a strong fire smell comes out of the back. So the trust is away and we both are going to exchange it for another brand! Sorry because the amp sounded great when he was doing it.

Comments about Line 6 Spider III HD150 75Wx2 Guitar Amp Head:

I own this head.I bought the 150w Combo and decided to move up to the half stack and I'm not disappointed. I love this head.It sounds good.. The clean channel falls flat but thats not what I bought it for. All the distortion FX work great, and the delay/reverb etc sound ok. I use a custom preset based off the Cradle of Filth setting but in the Insane channel. The built in tuner works great but i find that its not as accurate as my ear. A must buy with this amp is the FVB Express. It makes switching so much easier. My setup:Spider III hd150 + AT420 B52 Cab. I DON'T like the spider cabs.. they feel and sound cheap to me, plus they're mono. Look for a stereo cab if you really want this thing to crank.

Superb

Comments about Line 6 Spider III HD150 75Wx2 Guitar Amp Head:

This head is absolutely superb! There are so many features tucked away in it. It takes some reading and studying, but in no time I've found most of the settings for the songs we play in my band. I've owned quite a bit of combo amplifiers, tube and solid state alike, and I'm pretty impressed with this 'digital' amp! Line 6 knows sound quality. The distortion is not quite enough for my tastes, but I get that with every amp I've owned. That's where my Grunge comes in.Considering all the features this amp comes packed with, I truly wish Line 6 would have put some heavier knobs on it. The play is really loose and could pose problems from vibration during high volumes, especially in small enclosed practice rooms.And as far as the cabinet goes... you just have to love Celestions!Overall, a highly recommended half stack! Do yourself a favor and test one out. I'm glad I did before locking myself in on the HDFX. I do not regret trying this amp out and buying it for a deal online!
