Vintage British beauties, modern American monsters and more, Spider IV 150 features the 16 celebrated amp tones that all guitarists want in their collections.

Play with sparkling clean tones based on a 1973 Hiwatt Custom 100, syrupy smooth drive tones based on a mix of a '65 Marshall JTM-45, a '58 Fender Bassman and a '63 Fender Vibroverb, British pop/rock tones based on a fawn Vox AC-30, high-gain onslaughts based on a Mesa/Boogie Dual Rectifier and a Diezel Herbert, the Class A crunch based on a Divided by 13 9/15, the classic Class A breakup based on an Orange AD-30, and more.

The documentation is very good, and the website is average. (it needs a lot of work)

The on board chromatic tuner seems to be badly engineered and difficult to use. I don't think it is accurate, I always have to use a standalone tuner to be sure my guitar is in tune... and that sucks.

Because it's all digital, many of the modeling presets are distorted and fuzzy, yet others (mostly the "Clean" presets are clear as a bell. My guess is, somehow, you'll find a few that will work for you.

The more distortion and gain of the preset, the more likely you will not be happy with them, as all the data overloads the chips they are using, and you end up with a poor sound,

My guess is Line 6 will eventually come out with higher memory and faster processors that can actually handle the distortion presets as they should have done to begin with.

(I'm sure it all came down to manufacturing expense, and getting these things out the door at the lowest affordable cost to the average musician)

All in all- you can't buy a better modeling amp, at any cost... anywhere else. If you need a good amp, get this one. I'll have my eye out for the next generation modeling amps from Line 6. No doubt they will be monsters. (And more expensive too...)
This amp has so many features and modes that it will take you a few weeks just to toggle through them all to see which ones you can use for your style of music, and which ones you like the best.

On top of the 16 presets, there are a bunch of presets for specific songs to choose from.

All of these features are fantastic.

You can get the FSB shortboard , (an optional add-on) and with that yyou can store your favorites, and call the up on the fly with your foot, rather than bending over your amp toggliing through menus and settings in-between songs, which would be very inconvienient.

With the stompbox you also get a USB cable, and you can download more settings from the Line 6 website, create your own, and share them with others.
The cloth front speaker covering is thin and vulneralble to kicks and trips, so be careful.

The inputs and dials and readouts are all fairly good quality.
On sale from Musician's Friend - this thing is a bargain.

If it were only sold at retail, I'd buy a tube amp, and live with fewer features.

A quality tube amp with give you better sound quality than this solid state unit could ever provide.

I have gigged with this thing for two years playing small venues and larger ones. It holds up extremely well for what I have put it through. Except the only thing that you should be wary of is where the jack is on the amp. DO NOT BUMP INTO IT WHILE THE CABLE IS PLUGGED IN. It will break and you will have to be putting it back together over and over and over for days to come.
The features on this thing are straight forward. It has almost anything you can think of, and a little more. Nothing wrong here.
With quality, you get what you pay for. A solid state amp. If you are looking for clean sound, this is the way to go. The clean channel is extremely crisp, and sometimes mellow when you get it right. Yet, when you try for the high gain, there is an extreme loss of bass in the distortion sounds. The amp will give you tons of distortion, but it is extremely "dry". I have fooled with this amp for about two years now and I still cant get a full distortion tone. Just be wary of that before you purchase this amp.
With all the features at this price, you can't go wrong.

      Comments about Line 6 Spider IV 150 150W 2x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

      I've been using a lot of different amps over my 30 years of playing jazz/funk/blues. I had a Line 6 150 several years ago and just started looking at the reviews again. I thought I wanted to go tube again, so I sold the Line 6 150. What a waste of time. Now I'm full circle looking to pick up another 150/212. I still have my Spider 11 75/112 and a Spider MK11 112 Bogner 40 watt tube, which I love. I also had the Line 6 Low Down 300 bass amp head that I sold to finance something else. I have to say, I get some great tone from these amps, great tone! One thing I'd suggest to Line 6, skip all the presets and let the musician create their own sounds. This is why I love my Spider 11, no presets. To me they will never be used and just take up space. Though I'm sure there's plenty of people who would want this feature. I once loaned My 150 to a guy who was playing next to someone playing through a Fender Twin Reverb and my Line 6 did better than keep up. People kept asking me what amp it was because it sounded great. Take the time to work with the controls and you can tweak some great sound out of this amp and there's more than enough power.

      Let's be honest, don't purchase this as a first Amp. If you are familiar with Line 6 then you know that you're getting a powerful amp with plenty of great sounds. A steep learning curve, especially with the FBV Shortboard, but spend the time and learn its functions. Well worth the money if you're a guitarist who dances aroud sounds a lot. Loop feature is sweet too.

        Comments about Line 6 Spider IV 150 150W 2x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

        I am thoroughly pleased with the amps' great modeling. I'm experienced with all kinds of amps and I was hoping this amp would live up to the hype. Most especially, imitating good tube amps. Having an experienced ear, I can hear very slight differences in the digital vs analogue sound, but most people who don't play will not hear the difference. Nothings perfect, but this comes close, and is better than carrying around multiple amps. The Celestion speakers are great for most of the settings, but on some they get "muddy" when you crank up the volume. I may sometime change the speakers to something that will hold the sound even if I crank it up. I understand that there are some strong neo magnets that are lighter also. The hard thing is to hear the replacements without buying them all(rediculously expensive and impractical). I have seen some comments about Redcoat Man O War 12" being a solid replacement. I dont need to change them right now so I will do more research on different speakers.

        Oh! And by the way, if you decide to get this amp, I HIGHLY recommend getting the FBV Shortboard MKII. It makes a big difference in a lot of ways.

          Excellent amp with lots of power but as mentioned here the stock speakers are terrible. They sound good at low volume but when you crank up the volume they quickly lose definition and become muddy. Like another fellow who posted here, I took out the factory China made Celestrons and put in a set of Eminence Red Coat speakers. I elected to go with the Man O War which have a crisp high end. Now I can crank this amp up to 10 and get crisp and defined sound. It really made a huge difference! A must have modification if you are playing out in a band.

          Along with the FBV Shortboard (additional cost), it's a great amp for home / band practice and a back-up. I played one small bar gig with it and the sound was not there. I am very experienced with Line 6 products and know what I'm doing. If you need to make adjustments on the fly, it's kind of a pain. Give me Marshall or give me death.

          Comments about Line 6 Spider IV 150 150W 2x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

          As a long time Digitech fan since the 1980s, I must say this amp has high potential.

          When I first bought it, I wasn't sure because with the stock speakers, it sounds everything like a modeling amp. Completely artificial. It has too much emphasis on the extreme high frequencies and extreme low frequencies. But not enough in between. I was ready to toss this amp out the window.

          But then I realized that the speakers were chinese Celestions. That says a lot right there. I did my research and took a trip to my nearest music store to test out some speakers. I bought the Eminence Governor Red Coat speakers to replace the generic ones Line 6 so rudely installed in this amp.

          That's when the amp became a completely different one altogether. Suddenly the effects went from generic tinny sounding to EXCELLENT in every way. You can get any tone you want from country twang to Angus Young. And it will do it all LOUD and CLEAR on stage. The bottom end punch is VERY surprising. Our bass player used the word "scary" to describe it.

          I still believe Line 6 falls a bit short due to not having true "tone shaping" that Digitech innovated long ago. Else I would have given this all stars. Regardless, it is still versatile. But I don't think it's any good with direct recording unless your looking for that artificial tone. The new speakers do a great job at covering that up.

          Comments about Line 6 Spider IV 150 150W 2x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

          It's a digital, modeling amp; it will never sound like a tube amp. You can tweak it so that it will sound close by adding reverb and slight delay but if you really listen the distortion will always sound digital.

          Other than that it's a great amp! The speakers sound great, other than the distortions there really aren't any bad effects.

          I don't know if I'd recommend this for a begginer, it's easy to get caught up in layering effects and if you don't know what you're doing you can get lost/frustrated.

          I've been playing metal through it, I do the rhythm and some melodic accompiniments and it works out for me since I'm a bit lower in the mix.

          I use it as 2x12 for practice and then hook into a 4x12 cab for shows and that works very well for me!

          I only gave this 4 stars because the distortion is really digital sounding but for a modeling amp under $2k it is the best you're going to find!
