Product# 620208
OVERVIEW

The wide range of Spider IV 15 amp tone starts strong, with a bright and distinctive American clean tone, and then opens gradually to achieve the vintage grit and chime of classic British amplifiers. Experience the infamous "Brown" sound distortion, which is based on a '68 Marshall Plexi 100 with a Variac and jumped input channels, and a searing high-gain tone based on a Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier.

With one-touch ease you can access 4 channels of world-class Line 6 tones that were masterfully dialed in by pro players. Plus, each channel also stores 4 complete amp settings of your own creation! Create, save and recall amp model, EQ, gain and effect settings with the push of a button. A wolf in sheep's clothing, Line 6 Spider IV 15 sounds ferocious at low volumes as well as cranked to 11. Plus, value-packed, the guitar amp puts pro sounds into a lightweight box that's small enough to tuck under your bed or desk. Joining the Line 6 community entitles you to top-tier customer service provided by Line 6 representatives and other Spider IV users. Get free Spider IV 15 amp settings for famous songs as well as free lessons, backing tracks, drum loops and more.

An Instant Collection of Essential FX
Line 6 Spider IV 15 Smart FX were inspired by sought-after stompbox and studio effects to deliver the same unique sounds, colors and textures celebrated by pro players. At your fingertips are 6 brilliant effect models. Discover the tangy Chorus/Flange, swirly Phaser, expressive Tremolo, beautiful Tape and Sweep Echoes, and syrupy Reverb. Plus, Tap Tempo syncs all your time-based effects. Two effects can be used simultaneously. Spend less time tweaking and more time rocking with Smart FX. Each knob lets you easily adjust the intensity of the chosen effect so you can get back to playing as quickly as possible.

Total Tone Flexibility
The easy-to-use front panel makes it a snap to find a stage-ready tone. Quickly and easily add some grit with the amp's Drive knob and some dimension (or dementia) with the wide variety of effects.

Need to shape your tone? Tweak the Bass, Mid, and Treble knobs just like you would on a vintage amplifier. When you choose an amp model, the Spider IV 15 EQ section behaves just like the EQ section of the modeled amplifier. Spider IV 15 guitar amp gives you a complete, organic, and fully authentic representation of each of its amplifier models.

The Line 6 Spider IV 15 provides all the flexibility and conveniences that guitarists expect from a world-class Line 6 amplifier. Jam along to your favorite music with the CD/MP3 input and play all night with the great-sounding headphone output (that doubles as a high-quality direct-recording output). Plus, the amp's built-in tuner is always at the ready to keep you sounding your best.

Power, Speakers and Construction
Every aspect of the Line 6 Spider IV 15, from its guitar input to its 15-watt power section to its 8" custom speaker, delivers exceptional definition, clarity and feel. And the three-quarter closed-back cabinet adds a tight, snappy response to the diverse range of tones.

Ups dropped it off yesterday, and it is everything I hoped, but better. The metal and insane channels are perfect. The clean is gorgeous, for a sort of metal clean tone. If you want to play a lot of Zeppelin or Pink Floyd, you might be better off with a Vypyr. but if you want Mettallica and Crue, to A7X, back to AC/DC and Aerosmith, youll love it. The metal channel is heavy as hell, and can still get up and throw piercing highs and mids. Everything is tight and punchy as hell. The biggest thing that shocked me was the clarity at seemingly stupid volumes for such a small amp. MF was out of stock when I ordered it, and I still had it in 7 days with free shipping. I highly recommend this amp to all metalheads. Thanks Musicians Friend and Line 6. RNFR

For the price, this is a very average amp. I believe there is far better to be had in this price range. I would only recommend it for an ABSOLUTE beginner who really won't be able to tell the difference in tone, and most importantly, has the money to replace it within a few months, which is the time it took me to outgrow this amp. The tone is perfectly usable for heavy metal, and there are a few singing lead tones to be had. However, the crunch and insane models are both horrible, and the tape echo is the only effect that doesn't sound annoyingly digital. My advice would be for anyone on a budget with a variety of taste in music to save up a little more and go for either a Peavey or a Fender Mustang.

    Comments about Line 6 Spider IV 15 15W 1x8 Guitar Combo Amp:

    Did I really need another amp? No...but when I played through this amp I was amazed at the sound quality, the transitions of clean and 3 distortion(s), the chorus, flanger, echo....all in one package. Wow!
    This has to be the best bang for your buck in a small practice amp. I bought it on the spot! ( I actually was in the store checking out guitars...)

      I love the high end Line 6 products, I have a spider valve 212 that is my main amp for my band, and it is amazing, but this little thing just in general is okay, but its nothing special. the distortion is fuzzy and just kinda empty sounding, but that is to be expected from a 15 W practice amp. Get a Marshall instead.

              When I got this, it was fresh out of the box, the distortion channels sound really great for 15 watts. Although it's not loud enough for live gigs, it's loud enough to really anoy parents and neighbors. So Turn it up and rock out!

                Top quality amplifier. It made my guitars come alive. The special hiss-eliminator feature was perfect for connecting to the sound system. Now you can't tell that I am plugged in unless I am playing.
