OVERVIEW

Recreating the authentic characteristics and tonal nuances made famous by a collection of modeled amplifiers.

Plug into a Spider IV 120 for industry-leading Line 6 amp and FX modeling, dialed in tones and presets created and inspired by rock stars, and much more. The Line 6 Spider is one of America's best-selling family of guitar amplifiers.

Guitar Amplifier Models
Each model in the Line 6 Spider amp delivers the distinct tonal nuances of celebrated American, British or European guitar amps. Models were inspired by a Marshall JCM-900, Hiwatt Custom 100, 60's Fender Blackface Twin Reverb, 60's Fender Blackface Deluxe Reverb, Vox AC30 Top Boost, Divided by 13 9/15, 50's wide panel Fender Deluxe Reverb, Gretsch 6156, '68 Marshall Plexi 50-Watt, Orange AD30, '68 Marshall Plexi 100-Watt with a Variac and jumped input channels, Diezel Herbert, and Mesa/Boogie Dual Rectifier.

Passionate about presets? The Line Spider IV 120 guitar amp has them in spades with over 500 in total. Beside the 300+ presets hand-crafted by 50 rock stars, and beside the almost 200 presets inspired by the best guitar songs of all time, the Line 6 amp can create and save up to 64 of your own user presets.

Dialed in by rock stars
Who do you want to sound like today? Discover the tones of your heroes in Line 6 Spider IV 120. 50 famous guitarists and bands, including Coheed & Cambria, Johnny Marr, Slipknot, and others, hand-crafted more than 300 of their signature tones and turned them into Line 6 Spider IV 120 presets-from sparkling cleans to effect-laden tones to saturated high-gain heaven.

Dialed in by Line 6
Get one-touch access to almost 200 tones based on the best guitar songs of all time-from the switchblade-swinging slapback of the 1950s to the high-gain distortion of the 2000s. Get the tones from Master of Puppets, Back in Black, Whole Lotta Love, Daytripper, Toxicity, Purple Haze, Head Like a Hole, Smells Like Teen Spirit, Crazy Train, and more.

Edit, store and share, all via computer
The Line 6 Spider IV Edit software (a free download from Line6.com) is an editor/librarian for your Spider IV 120 tones. Bask in the glow of your computer while you edit presets, create backups, and even email tones to other Spider IV players.

Smart FX
Smart FX knobs put award-winning Line 6 effects at your fingertips. Easy to use, Smart FX let you spend less time tweaking and more time playing. Quickly add or remove any amount of the 20 lush reverbs, exceptional echoes, tangy mods, and more. Make all your adjustments on the fly-all the knobs are on the front panel. Up to 4 Smart FX can be used simultaneously.

Go deeper into FX

Deep dive into your effects like never before! Every effect is fully adjustable up to 7 parameters deep, including pre- and post-amplifier routing. Sculpt your delays, mods, reverbs, pitch effects, and more with unparalleled control.

Spider FX Infusion
What's better than more effects? More effects for free! Line 6 Spider FX Infusion (a free download from Line6.com) more than doubles your amount of Smart FX. Beef up your Spider IV 120 with 28 additional overdrives, compressors, delays, reverbs, mods, and wahs. You'll have more effects than any other modeling amplifier!

Pitch effects (Smart Harmony and Pitch Glide)
Smart Harmony is Line 6's first intelligent pitch shifter. It's fast-tracking and easy to use. Harmonize using major, minor, pentatonic, whole tone, and other types of scales. (Don't worry, you don't need to know music theory to use Smart Harmony).

Pitch Glide is most effective when used with an FBV MkII foot controller. Use the foot pedal to smoothly shift your tone up or down to any interval within a four-octave range. The effect can be calibrated to semitones, or to 10-cent increments to create cool chorus/detuning effects.

Quick loop
Quick Loop is a 14-second sound-on-sound looper that's ideal for writing songs, practicing solos, jamming, and even dialing in your tone. Easy to use, Quick Loop's controls are all on the front panel. Connect an FBV MkII foot controller for handsfree control of the looper functions.

Simultaneous FX
Use up to 8 effects at the same time! Pour on the colors and textures with all 4 Smart FX, set the adjustable Boost and the Noise Gate, activate Quick Loop, and connect an FBV MkII foot controller to kick on the volume/wah pedal. How many other amplifiers can do that?

Speak up
Celestion guitar speakers are world renowned for their exceptional definition, clarity, and feel. And that's just what they give to Line 6 Spider IV guitar amp. The 2x10" Celestion custom speakers help clean tones sparkle and sing, creamy overdrives respond to the intricacies of your picking, and searing brutal tones launch themselves from the cabinet.

Manual mode
Manual mode draws a more traditional amplifier experience out of Line 6 Spider IV 120. When Manual mode is activated, all front-panel knobs work independently of one another. (Out of Manual mode, choosing an amp model may adjust the settings of the other front-panel knobs.)

Stay focused
To get the whole story of Line 6 Spider IV 120, you need to turn one around. It features a perfectly tuned three-quarter closed-back cabinet. This provides a tight, punchy, focused response that you can't get from an open-back guitar speaker cabinet.

Tune up
You'll always sound your best with the Line 6 Spider amp's built-in tuner. No need for an external tuner or additional guitar cables, this invaluable tool is integrated into the amp's front panel. Activate the tuner with the push of a button.

Window to the soul
A large, two-line LCD is your window into Line 6 Spider IV 120 amplifier. This is where you can deep dive into effects and adjust their parameters, scroll over 500 presets, see the tuner interface, name your user-created presets, get a visual representation of where your Smart FX knobs are set, and more.

Downloads and upgrades
Keep your Line 6 Spider IV 120 guitar amp up to date with an FBV MkII foot controller. Connect the Spider IV 120 to Line6.com via an FBV MkII foot controller to receiver valuable software and firmware updates and upgrades. These updates may include new features, presets, or effects.

Foot controllers
FBV Express MkII delivers handsfree channel switching; FBV Shortboard MkII is a full-on remote control. They both feature a full-sized volume/wah pedal, chromatic tuner display, bright LEDs, durable footswitches and chassis, and more. They keep you at the foot of the stage instead of tied to the front of your Line 6 Spider IV 120 guitar amp. They also feature USB connectivity for keeping your Spider IV 75 up to date. (Foot controllers not included.)

I am an "old school" lover of classic tube amps. I play mostly acoustic shows now, but still like to jam and play electric from time to time. I was torn between getting a low-watt inexpensive tube amp or getting something a bit more powerful and versatile. I decided to purchase the Spider IV 120 stereo amp after experimenting extensively with a friend's similar amp on loan for over a month. In terms of sound, the amp has excellent warmth and touch sensitivity. The "break up" is smooth and authentic. In all, it convincingly captures the subtle nuances of classic tube sound, and I'm hard-pressed to tell the difference in some cases. Would I go so far to say that it's better than a good tube amp? Probably not, but there are many advantages. For one, the Spider IV amp is versatile and provides quite a sonic pallete for creative work. It also isn't as physically delicate and sensitive. Can't beat the price, either. I have a love-hate relationship with the myriads of presets. On one hand, one can find something useful to tweak every now and then. On the other hand, there's just too many presets to wade through. Simplicity is better. In the past, I've owned a pre-CBS Fender Bandmaster, Twin Reverb, Music Man HD130, Vox AC30 and, yes, a Marshall half stack. Over the years, amps have all come and gone. I'd love to have them all again, but can't. I've recently had stints with a Vox AC15VR and Vox Valvetronix. Liked them both. But, in the end, the fullness of sound (stereo) and surprising warmth of the Line 6 Spider IV 120 has captured my heart for the moment. Nothing like having the history of sound in rock and roll at your fingertips for a reasonable price. If you're a purist and have the money, go out and buy an expensive tube amp and claim superiority. Otherwise, leave me alone as I crawl reluctantly out of the past and try to stand on digital legs.

I've Played a number of shows, Metal shows are loud, I've played with a lot of bands, everyone is shocked to find out that Both guitar players in my band use Line - 6 amps, The other guitar player in my band uses a spider II and myself - obviously - Spider IV. I play my ESP F-100FM through it as my Main guitar, my Other guitar player uses a Schecter C-1 Hellraiser. I also have a Fender American Strat, I use when I go Blues for a weekend. All work fine. I wasn't Reluctant to buy this at all. A lot of my friends in other bands said "dude, don't buy one, They won't cut through live!" or something around those lines. After playing a few shows with them, they sold their Marshalls and pedals for the Line-6. With all the amp comes with, it will really save you money down the road because, Except for a floor tuner and maybe a wah pedal, all the effects you need are in your amp!
Lots of Presents, the tuner works like it should, will have you busy for a few afternoons just digging through all the sounds it comes with, lots of fun and if you do it right, you can come up with some truly unique and interesting sounding stuff.
The sounds are Crisp and Clear, the Cleans are what you would expect from a solid State, keep in mind this isn't a high dollar tube amp, so don't be expecting to hear a perfect C. but it's not like strumming an acoustic either, it's a good Clear Clean, that matches what a Marshall or Fender would offer. Again like I said in the Features There is a lot of Meddling you'll find yourself in once you get this amp in your home. As I play in a Metal band, I'll go thoroughly through the Distortion settings. The Metal Setting, Advertised is suppose to be that 80's Glam rock everyone tries to Forget about. I play in a Black Metal band and thats the setting I use, the settings that are supposed to be more "extreme" in sound are just a bit too much for my personal Preference. I keep the Gain at about 8:30. I play with what a lot of people might say is too much reverb, I keep it all the way up. But thats just the style of Metal I play, it sounds amazing, moaning Zombies is the sound I get. But I also play blues, Texas Shuffle, Rock, Rock n' Roll(there is a difference) and this amp out does a lot of amps I've played. Truly Amazing Quality Amp.
If Line-6 weren't so Modest, they'd Sell this at Twice the price. Thankfully, They're not arrogant and this is at a reasonable price for us Penny pushers, who have no Power in their house and have to do all this online stuff at the library. You should seriously Purchase this Item before that Ego Does inflate though.

Steep Learning Curve, But Worth It

By Kevin Murphy

from Logan, Utah

Comments about Line 6 Spider IV 120 120W 2x10 Guitar Combo Amp:

The Spider IV 120 is a keeper. Tons of features and sounds, and the ability to add even more.
First and foremost, if you're used to just "plugging and playing" the Spider IV can be daunting. It's a complex and intricate tool that requires almost as much study and practice as your guitar. But - if you have the patience, and access the online sources Line 6 provides, you can do almost ANYTHING with this little beast. My only caveat is that you had better have an optional pedalboard - preferably the FBV Shortboard Mk. II - to fully access everything this amp is capable of doing. You also need to download the Advanced Guide from the company's website - the manual provided with the amp is totally inadequate.

Once properly equipped and prepared, the features are almost mind-boggling. The amp models are varied and well-selected, from a '65 Twin Reverb to a Mesa/Boogie Dual Rectifier. Tube snobs may sniff, but the tones are pretty damned accurate for a solid-state unit, and reproduce my guitars' sounds very well. The effects can be modified almost limitlessly (again - DOWNLOAD THE ADVANCED GUIDE!) and provide just about anything you need to tweak your sound. I'll never buy another pedal or stompbox again.

The artist and song presets are the features I use least - I'm trying to sound like myself, after all, not someone else - but it's interesting to pull up one of my favorite tunes and see, via the display, how an artist set up his or her rig to get that sound.

Combine all this with a LOUD 120 watts and Celestion G10P-80 speakers which are rich and full-sounding for ten-inchers, and you've got a real winner. Add a direct line out, input for MP3 or mini-recorder, tuner, looping, and access to additional tweaking (courtesy your FBV and the Line 6 website), it'll be a long, long time before you can come close to exhausting this amp's capabilities.
The Spider is solid, well-built, and HEAVY.
This price? Are you kidding? Unfortunately, you need the FBV (at additional cost) to do everything possible with the amp.

Fantastic

By Richard Brooks

from mississippi delta

Comments about Line 6 Spider IV 120 120W 2x10 Guitar Combo Amp:

I would strongly suggest that you buy the line6 fkII foot shortboard controller with it. I bought the cheaper express and love it but now I wish I had spent a little more and gotten the more expensive one. With the controller you can hook your amp up to the computer and download hundreds of presets from the line6 site.

Of course, it's a volume/wah control as well as four programmable stomp switches
This is a wonderful amp. It comes with a lot of presets and you can get more. Find a preset that gets you close to what you want and then fiddle with it. Yes, it takes some effort to learn to set it up the way you want but hey, you'd expect that from a serious machine.
I have absolutely no problem with it. It's everything I've ever wanted in quality.
For what you get this is a great value

Comments about Spider IV 120 120W 2x10 Guitar Combo Amp:

I really wanted this amp to be the answer, but the 75W sounds much better. The 10" speakers just don't have the depth. This amp sounds too bright with no bottom end, and is also no louder than the 75W. Drums overpower both amps. I have to move up to the 150W to get the volume and keep the sound quality.

    Comments about Line 6 Spider IV 120 120W 2x10 Guitar Combo Amp:

    I've owned this amp for a few months now. It's a great versatile amp. But I've found that its definitely geared more towards players who want a high gain sound. The overdrive/ blues-y sounding channels are alright, but the high gain tones are actually not bad at all. RECOMMENDATION: If you're going to be using the high gain sounds, buy an overdrive pedal like a Maxon OD808, Ibanez Tubescreamer, Boss SD1, etc to boost the amp. The low end is a little flubby and using an overdrive pedal will help the amp out tremendously. It also doesn't sound half bad for some home recording. And you can definitely gig this. Its got plenty of volume.

    Comments about Line 6 Spider IV 120 120W 2x10 Guitar Combo Amp:

    I bought this amp for one reason only. I needed a lot of fx and quick preset switching for live shows. I was looking at getting a POD HD or a used AxeFx along with some sort of power amp/cab set up, but ultimately decided to save some money and go with the Spider IV and a FBV controller pedal. It works well for what I want it to do, but I do have a few minor gripes with it.

    The biggest one is that while there are quite a few fx to pick from, you're limited in how you use them. My ideal rhythm preset would include an EQ pedal, an overdrive pedal, and a comp. All 3 are available (although the EQ pedals are pretty weak in the tweakability department)but they all are limited to the 1st fx bank. Kind of a buzz kill, but I manage.

    The delays and reverbs all sound very nice, and if you spend some time tweaking them you can get some cool presets.

    If you get this amp, make sure you get the FBV Express MKII pedal. Without it, the amp (to me at least) seems borderline useless.

    Comments about Line 6 Spider IV 120 120W 2x10 Guitar Combo Amp:

    Pay no attention to the "tube-scewbs" out there, and listen with your ears. This is the affordable, reliable future of guitar amplification whether tube snobs like it or not, and as of right now, solid state amplification has met all the benchmarks to push you over the fence if you were considering a Line 6 amp. I've owned and gigged/recorded extensively with a: Mesa Triple Rectifier, Mesa Mark IV, Marshall JCM 800, and a Peavey 5150, as well as played/recorded with countless others. Before you make the same mistakes I did, learn from them! After investing thousands in tube amps, effects, and various switchboards preamps and EQ's, I feel like a schmuck for not having given Line 6 a shot sooner. But I'm not sure if earlier models would have met my criteria. This amp however, does. Combine this with the FBV Mk II and the world is your oyster. All those terms you hear: shimmery, glassy, warm, fat, etc are in full glory here. The way it reacts to your picking style, even the TYPE of pick you use is immediately noticeable, and another benefit of transistor technology: the tracking of your notes is dead on, and sublime. Forget the amp model presets. Dig into this amps custom parameters, and if you can't find the tone you're looking for, I suggest you find a different hobby/profession. With it's customizable effects, rock-hard build quality, simple interface and immediately obvious creative potential, you have all the amp you need to get gigging and recording right out of the box. Line 6 did everything with this amp that Spider III owners could have hoped for in an upgraded model. Heck, I don't know where they would even go from here, with it's down loadable effects and whatnot. I'm officially a Line 6 man now. I'm selling off two of my tube amps to get another PRS.

    Probably the last amp I think that I am gonna need to buy

    By WC Salberg

    from in a house

    Comments about Line 6 Spider IV 120 120W 2x10 Guitar Combo Amp:

    Seriously an amp that can handle everything I throw at it....

    Metal, Funk, Improvisational, Rock, Punk, Blues, Jazz.... this thing is a perfect tool for a studio stage bassist. I know a lot of people are gonna flame me for saying this, but this guitar amp replaces over five times the price of bass rack gear.

    Try it and you'll see......
    This amplifier is amazing. I have seen the Line6 products around for awhile and finally heard one up close thru a guitarist I used to jam with and was really impressed. I checked out one of their bass rigs since I am a bassist and honestly, the thing was nice but when I decided on a whim to check out the Spider iv (mainly due to the multi effects) I was totally floored. This thing is incredibly versatile. I can adjust the eq to a perfect range for my 4 and 5 string to achieve an epic tone that I swear by. Mix that with the fact that it is loud as hell and can handle any venue that I have to play (and then some), portable, and has waaaaaay more features than I can use.
    Solid construction, it is my first run with an open back enclosure and it is a different tone BUT it still sounds awesome...
    This amp does more than my last rack set up and that thing set me back 3x as much.

    Good Amp for the price

    By Leadplayer

    from P

    Comments about Line 6 Spider IV 120 120W 2x10 Guitar Combo Amp:

    I just purchased this amp a month ago. If you take your time with the effects and settings you can get very good sounding patches from it. I have been seeing alot of reviews that say the amp has great sounding presets but the user patches do not sound that good. If the presets sound great then the user patches that you create can sound just as good if not better, it just takes awhile to get used to. I do agree that the effect editing is not the best, the options you get to edit the reverb and other effects is sort of generic but once you get the hang of it you can get great sounding patches, and remember Spider FX Infusion is coming soon which gives us 24 or 28 more effects for free and Spider IV Edit is coming out which lets us edit and save patches on our P.C.s , my Gt Pro unit has P.C. editing software and it makes patch writing so much eaiser and enjoyable for us Computer nerds. The amp does start to break up after the 1/2 mark which is plenty loud for most applications. Unless you play extreme heavy metal most all bands mic their amps these days and the 1/2 way mark on these amp is plenty enough for stage volume for most cases, however if you need more there are the 2-12 and half stack versions I just prefer the response and feel of 10's over 12's. I have not played HUGE jobs but I do play alot of outdoor jobs with 1500 to 3000 people and this amp would cover stage volume for jobs that size just fine and let the pa cover the audience. Overall this amp gets a 4 from me its not a vetta II for sure, and if you a looking for a specific tone for all your songs or all your bands then get an amp and stomp bpxes that will give you that tone, however if you are in a cover band or need alot of different tones this amp is a steal for the price.

    Comments about Line 6 Spider IV 120 120W 2x10 Guitar Combo Amp:

    I've Played a number of shows, Metal shows are loud, I've played with a lot of bands, everyone is shocked to find out that Both guitar players in my band use Line - 6 amps, The other guitar player in my band uses a spider II and myself - obviously - Spider IV. I play my ESP F-100FM through it as my Main guitar, my Other guitar player uses a Schecter C-1 Hellraiser. I also have a Fender American Strat, I use when I go Blues for a weekend. All work fine. I wasn't Reluctant to buy this at all. A lot of my friends in other bands said "dude, don't buy one, They won't cut through live!" or something around those lines. After playing a few shows with them, they sold their Marshalls and pedals for the Line-6. With all the amp comes with, it will really save you money down the road because, Except for a floor tuner and maybe a wah pedal, all the effects you need are in your amp!
    Lots of Presents, the tuner works like it should, will have you busy for a few afternoons just digging through all the sounds it comes with, lots of fun and if you do it right, you can come up with some truly unique and interesting sounding stuff.
    The sounds are Crisp and Clear, the Cleans are what you would expect from a solid State, keep in mind this isn't a high dollar tube amp, so don't be expecting to hear a perfect C. but it's not like strumming an acoustic either, it's a good Clear Clean, that matches what a Marshall or Fender would offer. Again like I said in the Features There is a lot of Meddling you'll find yourself in once you get this amp in your home. As I play in a Metal band, I'll go thoroughly through the Distortion settings. The Metal Setting, Advertised is suppose to be that 80's Glam rock everyone tries to Forget about. I play in a Black Metal band and thats the setting I use, the settings that are supposed to be more "extreme" in sound are just a bit too much for my personal Preference. I keep the Gain at about 8:30. I play with what a lot of people might say is too much reverb, I keep it all the way up. But thats just the style of Metal I play, it sounds amazing, moaning Zombies is the sound I get. But I also play blues, Texas Shuffle, Rock, Rock n' Roll(there is a difference) and this amp out does a lot of amps I've played. Truly Amazing Quality Amp.
    If Line-6 weren't so Modest, they'd Sell this at Twice the price. Thankfully, They're not arrogant and this is at a reasonable price for us Penny pushers, who have no Power in their house and have to do all this online stuff at the library. You should seriously Purchase this Item before that Ego Does inflate though.

      Comments about Line 6 Spider IV 120 120W 2x10 Guitar Combo Amp:

      very good slightly distorted tones and FX, also good clean tones with fx. Heavy distortions are acceptable but does mask guitar tone more than a good overdriven tube amp. Also acceptable for gigs, recommend the short board for live performances. Nice to have everything in one package, even foot controller does not require a power supply.

      Versatile and Fun!

      By Derik Quinn

      from Salt lake City, UT

      Comments about Line 6 Spider IV 120 120W 2x10 Guitar Combo Amp:

      Hands down the best overall amp for any musician wanting to add more versatility and a whole lot of fun into their playing.
      I have been using my Spider IV 120 amp for over two years now and have thoroughly enjoyed the ride! The wide range of effects and sounds are perfect for someone like me that plays a variety of styles of music. The myriad of tone presets allow you to pick from not only a particular style, but also select from hundreds of songs from any decade from 1950's to the present day. This intuitive option allows you to quickly find your desired song and immediately start playing.

      If for some reason I am not able to find the right preset tone built-in to my Spider IV, I have access to hundreds of user-created tones on the Line6 website. The Siper IV also also allows me to manually adjust any of the effects to create my own sound. The resources available on the Line6 website for owners of Line6 products was a huge selling point for me. Not only can you share tones with other Line6 users, but they also offer free guitar lessons and automatic updates (which they are always adding new tones and features to enhance your Spider IV).

      I have used my Spider IV on stage with my band and the two 10" Celestion speakers have had more than enough umph to play in smaller venues. No need to go to "11", I rarely have gone above 7 to rock the back row. For playing around the house, I can only get to about 4 before my wife starts complaining...even though she is two floors away!
      The Spider IV is a solid piece of equipment. I have taken this on the road and have had nothing go wrong or break. I have had no issues with the connections and love the various options for input/output. I have plugged and unplugged cables and mp3 players and internet cables into my Spider IV on a daily basis for over two years and have had no issues. The Celestion speakers are amazingly clear and the variety of tones are amazing.
      I can sum up my rating with just two words: variety of tones! You would spend hundreds of dollars more than the price of the amp just in buying all of the effects included in the Spider IV.

      YES,YOU CAN PLAY THIS AT GIGS! NO TUBES NEEDED!

      By Hot Carl-IvfrB

      Comments about Line 6 Spider IV 120 120W 2x10 Guitar Combo Amp:

      I play every weekend with this thing,and so many times during breaks other muscians come up to check my rig and cant belive the sounds that come from my 210 combo!! I can cover any kind of music from blues,rock,metal.You just need some time to tweek the sounds to your taste and save to a patch.That easy! Get the bigger footboard if you want full use for a cover band. Screw you one dimensional Tube is Tone players,this is the future not 1950's.Leave your vintage amps & pedals safe at home w/granny and gig with confindance with a Line6.

      Best amp EVER!!!!!

      Comments about Line 6 Spider IV 120 120W 2x10 Guitar Combo Amp:

      .
      I love this amp. Before i bought it I had heard only good things about line 6, and everyone was right. This amp has a great tone and more effects than u can imagin. I also bought the Line6 FBV Shortboard MKII and I love it. I am ready for any show that comes our way.
      This thing is alittle too heavy for a combo amp of its size but not too bad. On the other hand though it is built like a tank and is very durable. Ive only had it for two months but seems like ill have it for years to come. I bouth this size of amp because i sing and play guitar and I just needed something loud enough to get by, and boy is it loud enough. On my first show with this amp it blew away some of the other guitarist from other bands that were there who had marshall and peavey half stacks. 120watts is perfect.
      This is a great price for this beautiful amp, however when I bought it musicians friend had marked it down for like a week, so I got lucky. I also bought the FBV shortboard MKII so still ended paying a bit more for everything but it is all worth every cent. I LOVE LINE 6!!!

      Comments about Line 6 Spider IV 120 120W 2x10 Guitar Combo Amp:

      GOOD QUALITY FOR THE MONEY.THE ADD SHOULD MENTION THAT THE 2-10 DOES NOT HAVE A SPEAKER JAVK BUT THE 2-12 DOES THE WAY THE ADD WAS WORDED I THOUGHT MY 2-10 WOULD HAVE THIS FEATURE WICH IS VERY IMPORTANT TO ME.
      LINE 6 SHOULD MAKE CELESTIAN GIVE THEM A STRONGER RICHER SOUNDING SPEAKER FOR THE 10 INCH MODEL CAB.THEY HAVE NO TONE TO SPEAK OF THE 12'S DO.
      I STILL THINK OVERALL IT IS THE BEST DEAL FOR $399 ON THE MARKET.
      NO AMP SHOULD STOP GETTING ANY LOUDER ON THE #5 SETTING THEY NEED TO FIX THAT! I'M SHURE IT'S THESE GENERIC SOUNDING SPEAKERS.MY OLD 2-10 HAD GREENBACKS IN IT AND IT WAS AWSOME THESE STINK FOR EVERYTHING I USE THEM FOR INCLUDING AND ESPECIALLY REC W/A MIC.BUT I AM AN X PROFFESIONAL GETTING BACK INTO RECORDING.THEREFORE I EXPECT ALOT FROM WHAT I BUY BUT I REALLY CAN'T COMPLAIN OVERALL...IT GETS ME BY FOR NOW.
      THE DIRECT OUT FOR RECORDING IS FAIR BUT NEEDS TO BE A LITTLE THICKER W/A TUBE EMULATED PRE-AMP TO CUT THRU THE MIX.BUT I'LL BE GETTING A PRE-AMP AND I THINK THAT WILL FIX THE PROBLEM VERY CHEEPLY.I AM THANKFULL TO LINE 6 FOR AN OFFORDIBLE PRODUCT...THEY COULD CHARGE TWICE AS MUCH EASY.
      I LIKE THE FEATURES OF THE AMP JUST FINE FOR THE PRICE.AS FOR THE PERSON WHO'S REVIEW SAID THAT SPIDER AMPS DO NOT HAVE A LINE OUT I'M LOOKINING AT MY SPIDER AMP RIGHT NOW AND IN THE BACK OF THE AMP IT PLAINLY SAYS DIRECT LINE OUT AND IT IS A QUARTER INCH JACK! I USE IT FOR RECORDING DIRECT ALL THE TIME...SO PLEASE DISREGARD THAT PERSONS REVIEW INTIRELY!
      NOW IS IT THE BEST AMP ON EARTH FOR RECORDING?NO! BUT IT IS ABSOLUTLY THE BEST AMP FOR THE PRICE.I DO WISH I WOULD HAVE SPENT $100 MORE AND GOTTON THE NEXT MODEL UP WITH TWO TWELVE INCH SPEAKERS IT .ALSO IT HAS A JACK FOR AN EXTRA SPEAKER CAB THE 2/10-120 DOES NOT.THE 2/10 DOES NOT GO ANY LOUDER THAN 5.
      THE EFFECTS ARE NOT SUPER STRONG OR RICH SOUNDING BUT USEFULL AT TIMES
      THEY DO NOT COME THRU IN RECORDING HARDLY AT ALL.I NEED TO BUY AN ART TUBE PREAMP AGAIN TO HELP THE AMP SOUND THICKER ON THE TRACKS- IT NEEDS A BOOST. BUT THEN AGAIN IT ONLY COST $399.YOU CANNOT BEAT THAT.ALL IN ALL THE FEATURES ARE GOOD FOR ALL APPLICATIONS.USE YOUR OWN PEDALS IF YOUR A PRO IF YOUR NOT YOU'LL HAVE ALOT OF FUN WITH THIS AMP.SPLURGE FOR THE 2/12'
      COMBO IF YOU CAN ESPECIALY IF YOU PLAY LIVE W/A BAND.
      EXTREEMLY WELL BUILT! BUILT VERY SOLID FOR DRAGGING AROUND FROM GIG TO GIG.
      YOU CAN'T KILL A SPIDER THEY LAST FOREVER.I KNOW THIS IS MY SECOND ONE.
      AS FOR THE SPEAKERS,I DO NOT LIKE THEM AT ALL.I CAN'T BELIEVE THEY ACTUALY
      SAY CELESTIAN ON THEM.THIS AMP DOES NOT GO ANY LOADER THAN 5.IT ACTUALY STOPS GETTING LOADER TO PROTECT THE SMALL SPEAKERS-TOO SMALL OF SPEAKERS FOR THE POWER OF THE AMP.THEY SOUND SIMALAR TO THE 10'S FOUND IN CHEAP CHINESE 20 WATT PRACTICE AMPS I WISH I WOULD HAVE BOUGHT THE 2 TWELVE ICH SPEAKER COMBO...BUT! FOR $399 ITS THE BEST DEAL PERIOD!YOU WOULD HAVE TO SPEND 3 TIMES AS MUCH TO GET BETTER QUALITY THAN THE SPIDER COMBO'S.MY ADVISE TO SEMI PRO'S ECT IS TO GET THE 2/12 COMBO. THE 2/12 IS WITHOUT ANY DOUBT THE BEST TWIN CAB ON THE MARKET FOR UNDER $1200.THE 2/10 I BOUGHT WILL DO UNTILL I DAISY CHAIN A 2/12 GREENBACK CAB TO IT
      THE 2/12 HAS A JACK FOR AN EXTRA CAB THE 2/10 DOES NOT! A FACT NOT LISTED IN THE ADD OR ELSE I WOULD'VE BOUGHT THE 2/12 INSTEAD-LIVE&LEARN I GUESS.
      THE BEST 2-10 INC CAB FOR THE MONEY BAR NONE! SPEND AN EXTRA $100 AND GET THE 2-12 INCH COMBO FOR THE BEST VALUE ON THE MARKET.

      Comments about Line 6 Spider IV 120 120W 2x10 Guitar Combo Amp:

      Line 6 Spider IV - I played my Les Paul through this amp for about an hour and listened to it for another two. What a horrible sounding thing. The cleans are raspy and brittle with no warmth or compression. The overdriven tones sound like they're coming out of a transistor radio. The sound was never warm or fat, totally lacking in warmth and fatness.Understand that I've played through good quality tube amps all my guitar life and I've developed an ear for what sounds good. I'm not saying that you have to have a tube amp, but I can say that this one is a disaster.
