A giant of tone that gives you any sound you want, already dialed in.
This Line 6 Half-Stack includes the HD 150 Guitar Amp Head and Spider III 4x12 stereo speaker cabinet.
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 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 amplifier 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.
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 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.
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.

This amp is unbelievable. I got it yesterday and am still in shock of how good it is. It has so many great persets for anything that you want. This amp is so versatile. You can play and genre of music that you can think of on this amp because of all the channels it has. If you don't like any of the presets, make your own. You can save your own sounds right on the amp. Its clean channel is amazing. I also own a Marshall MG100HDFX which shorted out so i needed a new amp. The Line 6's clean channel is just as good if not, better than the marshall's. The distortion is really good and, if you read the mannual, you will see that there is a distortion boost which gives you a little more tone and sustain and makes it much louder. Speaking of louder, this thing PUMPS. I turned it up halfway and it was literally shaking the floor upstairs. The effects on this baby are really good. I use the phaser the most and it sounds EXACTLY like my friend's MXR Phase 90. The chorus and flange are extremely good as well. Same with the tremelo, which is my least favorite effect. The delay, sweep echo, and tape echo are extremely good. You can set the time intervals of the echo yourself if you dont like it already. And last but not least, the reverb. It is unbelievable. I've never heard such amazing stock reverb before. It can sound like you are playing at a stadium, or in a 3x5 foot room in an instant. Overall, this amp is worth every penny. The only thing that could make this amp better would be tubes. But other than that, this amp is the best there is. If you are debating between this and any other amp in its price range, go for this one. You won't be sorry.

Well what can I say, you get what you pay for. I bought the HD150 amp and cabinet combo a little over a week ago and I can't even express how disappointed I am with this product. I went off other reviews on how great it is and it turned out to be a bust. Great distortion but the tone is very muddy and muffled. To give you an idea, turn your tone knob on your guitar to 1 and this is the sound you get all the time no matter how you adjust the amp. I use Dimarzio Evolutions and EMG 81's and 85's which are bright sounding pick ups but this combo muffles them up. Turn the volume up past 4 and the tone you do have breaks up. Took it to the repair shop the other day and they say everything tests and works as it should. I'm thinking it's just low end quality speakers in the cabinet. Yes, they are Celestion but a far cry from their Vintage 30 or Classic lead speaker. A simple speaker change may fix the tone issue or a different cabinet all together but the amp head will still sound like your playing out of a computer. It does have alot of features so 4. Quality, built very strong and solid but poor sound so a 1. Value, low cost for a half stack but a great sound is everything, 1. Overall, .05. If you play Metal and your looking for a bone crushing sound, keep looking. I'm taking my back this weekend, going to bight the bullet and buy a Mesa dual rectifier.

This is the only half stack I have ever owned. My drummer suggested this to me and it has never let me down. I have played at home, full set stage shows, with the vollume in between 8-9 and never had a heating problem, and I used it when we recorded a cd. It has so many presets I have not even played them all in the past 3 years. The only drawback to me is the knobs are very sensitive and thats not a big issue to me.
This half stack is a half stack. Thus, it should not be used for little "emo" kids playing at bedroom volumes. You do not buy this to record direct into a computer (mic-ing is the only solution); and you do not use the given settings! I myself bought this amp because it gave me the ability to tweak every setting for my personal use. Now, after opening the head and messing around with the wattage inside, I have achieved an almost exact replica EVH Brown Sound. Anyways, if you buy this, turn it up then edit the settings and you'll be surprised!
From the get go I always thought Line 6 was a cheapo brand. But I decided I'd go ahead and try this out because from what I had seen it looked pretty darn cool. Once I finally recieved this amp I was pretty excited as always when getting a new toy. I read the stupid manuals and all crap, so I knew how to work it and everything. The features were pretty cool. I pick some good presets out, even tried making my own and then switched back to my tiny little carvin vintage 16 tube amp and was not very impressed by the line 6 head. I knew I should have gone with a tube amp. Sorry line 6 you're not getting my business anymore.(If you are just a beginner looking for a cool versatile amp, then this may work for you, but if you really dig a true tone, stay away from this electronic piece of crap and stick to the tubes).
There are so many negative reviews about this thing. and i find it hard to believe. These people are probably tube snobs. Honestly, this is one of the best amps ive played in my 6 years of experiance for under 1g.The metal tones are simply AMAZING.granted they dont sound like tube, but they are pretty close. Cleans sound great too.I play with a jackson w/ emgs, and this amp delivers metal with that.my gibson LP gets great blues out of this.Idk what people are saying about this overheating after 15 min, they must be doing something wrong.I play with this at about halfway volume for 3 hours straight atleast during my band practice. Even longer on somedays.Great value, pumps out some real nice tone.You shouldnt be dissapointed with this product.
Its got a butt ton of features great speakers its just that it doesn't come close to modeling anything. Its solid state and sounds accordingly. If you buying this expecting it to model tube amps in some way, prepare for disappointment. I own a two Peavey tube amps plus this at one time and this does not get tube sound. The Peaveys didn't do all the crazy sounds this did though soooo its a trade off.
Great for punk and metal and everything else. It can make my epiphones sound better than gibsons on Marshall amps. I use it for playing bigger shows,1000+ people and I have people coming up to me after shows telling me how amazing my guitar sounds. It's not the guitar its the amp! Great for playing live shows with your underground band. GET IT NOW you'll be glad you did.
I will admit, I like this amp. I traded in my behringer v-amp for it. Its got more clarity for rock and such. But its really hard to hear the punch during the palm mutes. I usally sit on the floor to play it for better head on volume. This amp is ok for beginners and a lesson learner for digital amp players.
This amp is pretty dang good. Easy to use, sounds great, and looks like its ready to do work. I have played on Marshall's and Vox's and in my opinion this is the best thing I have ever played on. Not a bad buy for the price.
I played this amp at a local music store and loved it, but when I got it home, I plugged my iPod into it and the amp started to like, reset itself over and over again. It got to the point where it did it without plugging anything into it. I could Play on Insane for like 15 mins. Luckily the repair shop said it does this sometimes and he just need to replace a chip/board inside and it is better. I LOVE THIS AMP, VERSATILE, GREAT PRESETS, I LOVE IT!
You won't find a better stack for this price. I purchased this half stack and bought another cab to add to make it a full stack. It is powerful!! This amp comes with so many features that you are bound to find something you like! I spent all the money I had on this amp and I don't regret it one bit.
