Edit, store and share, all via computer
Line 6 Spider IV Edit software (a free download from Line6.com) is an editor/librarian for your Spider IV HD150 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 Line 6 amp head's front panel. Up to 4 Smart FX can be used simultaneously.

Go deeper into FX

Deep dive into your effects like never before with this Line 6 Spider amp head! 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! Spider FX Infusion (a free download from Line6.com) more than doubles your amount of Smart FX. Beef up your Spider IV HD150 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 hands-free 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?

Manual mode
Manual mode draws a more traditional amplifier experience out of Spider IV HD150. 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.)

Tune up
You'll always sound your best with the 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 Spider IV HD150. 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 Spider IV HD150 up to date with an FBV MkII foot controller. Connect the Spider IV HD150 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 hands-free 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 Spider IV 75. They also feature USB connectivity for keeping your Spider IV 75 up to date. (Foot controllers not included.)

    An Excellent Digital Modeling Processor & Amp

    If you are seeking inspiration from the many hundreds of presets (all infinitely editable) or just play in more than one genre, or with various instruments which all have their own voices and personalitys this is good value and good tone across a very wide spectrum of choices.The caveat is that you need speakers which are neutral and uncolored in order to resolve the subtle nuanced differences of the many modeled voicings (amps, cabs, effects, etc.,). As a reference to what you should be hearing from your speakers, try listening to some reference grade headphones (studio monitor types too) direct out of the HD150. That way you will know what your speakers are or aren't reproducing. A modeling rig should essentially be as "hi-fi" as possible. I use a B-52 4X12 cab that was the most expensive one that they made at the time. Sounds superb with the HD150. I also have an expensive Yamaha 4X10 cab that sounds superb with the HD150 as well (with the horn turned off). Unfortunately, the kinds of speakers that one should use with a modeling amp are usually the "best" model (most expensive) in a manufacturer's line. Line 6 makes a very nuetral 4X12, but it is the most expensive one they offer. The less expensive models are much less impressive in representing the HD150's output accurately. If someone uses the most inexpensive cabs they can find, they will never hear what a modeling amp has to offer. So, there is an obvious cost disincentive to the modeling approach if you are trying to put together a really inexpensive rig. The reviewers who suggest that we, "buy a tube amp", or, "buy a real amp", don't really grasp the point of a modeling amp like the HD150. They are trying to craft a single tone to stand as their own/only voice. More of a one-trick-pony approach so not really relevant to someone who wants more choice and more creativity as provided by the HD150 and other guitar modeling products.I haven't tried recording the HD150 directly into a DAW yet, but based on what I hear through good headphones and my neutral cabs, I would expect the HD150 to sound as good or better than any of the guitar modeling softwares available, with far more presets and flexibility. Free downloads from Line 6 continue to expand the capacities of the HD150. When I bought the HD150 from Musician's Friend, Line 6 threw in a free FBV Express footboard as a gift, so really alot of bang for the buck. I like mine alot.

    I am an IT guy of 20 years, figuring out software and hardware is simple for me to say the least. This head is a poor quality waste of money. I have had two HD 150 heads and both power cycle when changing effects on certain amp models. I have the 4X12 cabinet as well and at loud volumes the amp loses it's punch. The delays are nice, reverb implementation is terrible, the tape echo flutters out and gurgles. This is an overpriced toy that I would be scared to take out of the house and gig with. It may power cycle right in the middle of a solo. Line 6 support is not very quick to take responsibility for the issues either. They told me to send it to them for repair as they could not reproduce the problem on the units they have in their lab. Again, I have owned two of these and am about to return the second one this week.

    Comments about Line 6 Spider IV HD150 150W Guitar Amp Head:

    I like this amp, it has good effects and it sounds real good...when it is working properly. My only problem with this amp is the volume control. The master volume is real hard to control since it doesn't have lock positions, it goes from no sound to medium to very loud. And, it will get real loud in the middle of playing a song with no input from me. And, it will not keep the volume settings that where programed into the effect. But, besides the volume problems, this is a fairly good amp. It seems to work better when it is warm, so I have to leave it on for a while before I start to play.

    Comments about Line 6 Spider IV HD150 150W Guitar Amp Head:

    I'm currently in a band that gigs regularly. My main set up was a Marshall JVM/1960a w/ Schecter Solo 6. I was constantly having issues on stage with feedback and hiss, even with a good noise gate in the loop. My other guitarist uses a Marshall MG and he never has any issues like that it's always just plug and play. So I decided to give a digital amp a try for reliability and ease of use. I saw a restocked Spider IV on MF for pretty cheap so I decided to take a chance.

    My expectations were low, I thought there's no way this digital amp will sound anywhere as good as my Marshall tube amp. WRONG. I'm blown away by the sound. I'm running it through my marshall cab and that may have something to do with it but it sounds every bit as good as the tube amp without the finicky temperment. Adjust the built in noise gate for instant and complete silence when you stop playing. I cannot believe how good it sounds for 1/5 the cost of a tube amp. It's plenty loud enough, and in fact it sounds mcuh better when played loud.

    To put it in perspective, this amp costs as much as about 3 pedals on my pedal board. I could have saved myself buying 7 pedals, pedal board, power supply, cables and a JVM had I just got this and a nice les paul custom instead.

          Comments about Line 6 Spider IV HD150 150W Guitar Amp Head:

          I bought this amp originally because we were forming a band and when we practiced, we used only amps. This amp has quite good effects and they are simple to use; however, if you play a down-tuned heavier style than this amp will quickly bottom out on you when you turn it up. For low to medium volume, this amp has a nice warmth to it and good response for a SS amp and for one of this price, but if you are buying for volume, then spend some extra money.

            bought this head 2 years ago and was overwhelmed by all the bells and whistles. this thing offers more than anyone could ever possibly need and more, but, it has too much electronics on board and that leaves too much room for error! my display switches back and forth from edit to play mode and my channels will just change mid song!!! The other guitarist in our band bought one at the exact same time and has now lost his lcd screen lighting and his volume went to half capacity for 3 weeks and then just blared out of nowhere again. oh, and did i mention that the first one i got didn,t put out any sound at all!!! had to drive 4 hours back to guitar center to get another one! so if you have 400 to spend on an amp, keep on looking right past this trap. i will say the cabinet is a screamer though. Also does not come with a pedal to access any of the fun. so if your in a band and want to gig you have to spend another 150 on the full access pedal.

              Most tube users will say that you cant get good tone with a modulating amp. That is not true...Especially if you plan on recording. The tone that comes from this amp is vast and powerful. Even the bunch of presets they have been useful. I think there just mad that they paid so much money if you ask me. Now i will say i would prefer a tube amp for large venue shows. But I have recorded most of my bands Cd on this amp and it sounds great. And i have also used this amp fro live shows with no problem.

                I love this thing! its everything i would want in a amp, the clean channel is good, and the distortion is good to, just get yourself a footswitch and your set! One thing I would add would be an effects loop, but thats not really a problem, good for metal and rock too.....

                Comments about Line 6 Spider IV HD150 150W Guitar Amp Head:

                would recommend to friends
                I bought this amp recently after a long hiatus from active playing within a band context. What many people will say about Line 6 is that it does not sound exactly like the amps it has models of there is a very nice and useable set of tones that can be derived from those that Line 6 has modeled plus with the infusion 2.0 updaye there is a huge array of effects to choose from. I own both transistor an solid state amps and in order to use a digital modeling amp properly one must understand that it is neither one of these types of amps and thus needs to be approached accordingly. The external effects that work well with my Laney or Vox do not work well with this Line 6 head. That does not mean that none of my pedals work well but rather I have had to look out for those pedals that the Line 6 products work well with. Transistor is transistor, tube is tube, and digital is digital..........but that does not mean any style of amp should be invalidated or overlooked. I have watched videos of all three types of amp architectures and have both good and bad from each type of technology.
                very nice
                excellent bang for the buck

                Comments about Line 6 Spider IV HD150 150W Guitar Amp Head:

                I'm going to give it a 9 overall, because it isn't perfect...but you'll have to dig to find it. For playing in cover bands ranging from classic rock, 80's hair metal, alternative...to currently playing hardcore metal, it's a cover band guitarist best tool. If you are looking for something that can get you the sounds you need, look no further. So what it's not a tube amp, most of your listeners will not be able to tell you the differences. Just make music...that's what it's all about.
                I'll admit the first time I played this amp, i wasn't impressed. I thought, this is way to complicated to many knobs. However, my current rig, I have a pedal maze, wires running everywhere, and it's a tube amp (Peavey). Setting up for rehearsals, shows...is a pain in the neck. The heads heavy, cabs heavy, the pedals, and having to also set up my PA (Lead Vocals) I'm just about exhausted come gig time. That's where the Line 6's sold me, I used a 75w Combo version at a show once, and I was sold, it took me very little time before hand to find the tones I needed, and with the FBV mkII, I was setup and ready to rock within minutes of arriving. I bought a 30w a couple of weeks later just for "Practicing" and it's so versitale. Sure, it doesn't have the same quality as a tube amp...sort of...I can't make my tube amp do everything these amps can do. Easy to use knobs (that can be turned in transit, and not mess up your presets and with the FBV it super easy to get straight to makin music.
                It feels light, and some folks think that means cheap. It's not a tube amp, so it's not going to be heavy. I'm not an engineer so I can't say if these are made "well." But it's good enough for me, just don't drop it or treat it like a piece of garbage, and it should do well for you.
                Lots of features that you could spend hundreds of dollars on(Pedals, rack mounted multi-effects). Seriously, it's well worth it. I even prefer these head over the Line 6 tube versions, because my ear can't hear much of a difference between the them.

                ive owned this head for a couple years now, i love it. Ive done the cover band stuff with it, which the effects work awesome to give you the sound for almost any song you can think of, i also write my own songs and it works just as good. It can be a little tricky getting use to digital but once you get it down thing throws some punches and squellies!!!! you wont find anything better for the price in my opinion

                Comments about Line 6 Spider IV HD150 150W Guitar Amp Head:

                i guess all in all for what i got it for and the service plan i really like it.. it shakes my house when i mute it at 30% volume, channel at 100% of course, it changes effects quickly.. however i dont like that it doesnt mix mith my digitech pedals and there is no effects loop and i get some noise when muting my guitars.. a mild hiss just for a sec... but it does pretty much ANYTHING ANY pedal can all in all i would say for at home and small local venues its good as long as u dont use more than 4 effects in any givin song... but if you are on a budget and need a loud clean amp this will do you pretty good especially with a footswitch w/wah-volume
                IT DOES EVVERYTHING! (almost) lol, but you would literally spend THOUSANDS on pedals tryin to get every sound this has to offer!!
