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.

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.

      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.

            Ive been using Line 6 amplifiers since 2008. Ive been using a Spider III for years, and i love it. I love this more. It has a very good sound for a solid state. I honestly prefer solid state to tube for cleans and tubes to solid states for distortion, but this amp has several decent distortion amp models. I prefer the red metal channel for distortion and the red clean and twang channels for cleans. The cleans really sound good with a little bit of added chorus. Overall I like this amp. I prefer my Spider III for distortion, but I like the effects on this better. I am glad I purchased this item.

            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.

            spider IV 120

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

            I bought the spider IV 120 about 3 months ago and i love it. When i purchased it i also ordered an FBV2 footswitch and it really was not what i was looking for and i also wrote a review on it if you would like to check that out before you waiste time and money on it. (I had to buy the FBV express MKII and its perfect for me.) The spider IV 120 is an incredible amp. that has all the power you need and effects to go along with it although the average musician wont ever use them all they are still nice to tinker with. Overall i would recomend this amp. to any musician that is serious or just likes pickin around the house. Good job on this one Line 6
