OVERVIEW

A powerful, flexible jam and practice rig.

The 75W Line 6 Spider Jam combo amplifier provides guitarists with hundreds of coveted guitar amp and speaker tones and effects. And Spider Jam also offers easy sound-on-sound loop recording with Line 6 Endless Jam tracks performed by top studio musicians. The well-endowed Spider Jam amp gives you the tools you need to hone your guitar skills, write songs, and play with the pros.

Professional drummers, bassists, and guitarists with countless platinum albums to their credit have filled the Line 6 Spider Jam with over 100 pulse-racing Endless Jam tracks and drum grooves. Exploding out of the Line 6 amp's 12" Celestion speaker and 2" tweeter in vivid, uncompressed audio, these tunes were recorded at legendary studios around the word ensuring the best possible sound quality. Plus, the Line 6 Endless Jam Engine keeps all the jams sounding fresh, keeping guitarists engaged for fun days of engaging practice.

Ideal for songwriting and recording, Line 6 Spider Jam captures jams, solos, and song ideas, internally storing up to 100 CD-quality recorded jams, with over 24 minutes of recording time.

Line 6 Spider Jam is capable of supporting more than a single instrument, or an instrument and a microphone. The 75W Line 6 amp offers an XLR mic input with a dedicated volume knob perfect for vocals, and a 1/4" aux input perfect for a second instrument like a keyboard or bass. These 2 inputs share a dedicated set of effects plus preamps, compressors, and a 3-band EQ. Spider Jam also boasts a 1/4" headphone out that doubles as a POD 2.0-style direct out for effortless, hassle-free direct recording.

As a member of the famous Line 6 Spider III family of guitar amplifiers, Spider Jam shares some popular family jewels like 200+ artist-created presets, 150+ song-based presets, 12 original Line 6 amp models, from Clean to Insane, and 7 stunning Smart Control FX, including reverb, delay and more. The Spider Jam's 12" Custom Celestion speaker ensures brilliant guitar tones and an integrated accurate chromatic tuner is always at the ready.

Amp Models:

Clean

Red LED: Crisp, shimmering clean tones and warm jazz tones.
Green LED: Glassy clean tones like those from the late 60s/early 70s. Inspired by a '73 Hiwatt Custom 100.

Twang

Red LED: Classic, glassy high-end with some snap and bite. Inspired by a Fender blackface '65 Twin Reverb and a blackface '64 Deluxe Reverb.
Green LED: Swingin' rockabilly tone a la vintage tweed. Inspired by a '53 Fender tweed Deluxe Reverb, a '58 Fender tweed Bassman, and a '60 Gibson Explorer.

Blues

Red LED: From gritty, swampy clean tones to syrupy smooth drive tones this was inspired by a mix of a '65 Marshall JTM-45, a '58 Fender Bassman, a '63 Fender Vibroverb, and a Supro.
Green LED: Early British rock tone made famous by the Beatles and the Stones. Inspired by a fawn Vox AC-30 with an updated and expanded tone control circuit.

Crunch

Red LED: Classic crunchy tone popularized by many early metal bands. Inspired by a '68 Marshall Plexi 50-watt.
Green LED: The infamous brown sound inspired by a '68 Marshall Plexi 100-watt with a few added extras - jumped input channels and a Variac transformer.

Metal

Red LED: Tight and punchy high-gain sound inspired by a Mesa/Boogie Dual Rectifier.
Green LED: Use this for aggressive high-gain sound. The mid knob sweeps the tone spectrum. Set to minimum for fuzz-pedal characteristics, set to noon for creamy, modern high-gain, or crank it for Class A carnage.

Insane

Red LED: Famed and feared bone-crushing, brain-piercing grind inspired by the Mesa/Boogie Dual Rectifier red channel.
Green LED: Short of a complete meltdown, this provides as much input-gain distortion as possible while retaining tonal definition and character.

Effects:

Spend more time playing and less time tweaking with Smart Control FX. Find the effect you want, turn the knob to the desired intensity, and you're done. Spider Jam offers seven effects, including dedicated Reverb, to choose from, and you can use up to three at a time. They include:

Chorus/Flanger
Phaser
Tremolo
Delay (with Tap Tempo)
Tape Echo (with Tap Tempo)
Sweep Echo (with Tap Tempo)

The Spiderjam lives up to its' advertising on all points-is easy to use, and a value among modeling amps. Its' recording in/out feature is worth the price of admission alone!
The Line 6 spiderjam lives up to all the hype-and then some! The amplifier models have the richness and depth of the differing models they were composed from, with extensive tone capabilities from the intuitive controls, right on top of the amplifier where they should be! Anything from warm and supple jazz cleans to the nastiest metal or shred is only a quick dial turn away! Drive and master controls are immenently useful and straightforward.And, there is a built in chromatic tuner!
The onboard effects-reverb, chorus, delay, etc.- are good, solid, and thoroughly useful, and the dial controls offer many shades of tone variation within the effect. In addition, The amplifier models each have a preset within these to make that particular model sparkle, although you can change it over to your own setting with a mere turn of the dial. In addition, there are good onboard equalizers and other great tone controllers/enhancers that really make recording with Spiderjam a dream! (More about recording later!)
The presets- song based, artist based, time period based, style based,- and the jams, drum loops, and tone presets thereof; are a complete and joyful trip in themselves! They are adjustable in pitch by moving up or down in half-tone increments (Be forwarned; the one caveat: move them up too much and they will get a helium effect-the beat tempo goes up with the key change, but again, no-one else seems to be able to stop this on these stand alone units, either!) and there are literally hundreds of choices, be you a rock, jazz, country, alt player, or any style in between! All of them are real band jams, and are professionally produced and performed. I'm still trying them out, but all I've tried have been great!
The recording and looping features are one of the top reasons to buy this baby-they perform as advertised, and more! Good clean recordings, with natural sound, whether on your own, or using the built-in jams! Inputs are available to run in other instruments (even keyboards!) or a microphone-you could create a convincing demo with this, and then burn it to c.d. with the aux out provided for that purpose! And as well, a whopping 30- plus minutes of recording time! A joy to practice with! I played a recording I made with it of a jazz piece, for a classic era jazz fan, and they couldn't believe the authentic tone!
The Spiderjam is a very solidly built amplifier, too, and its' 12 inch Celestion custom speaker, and 2 inch tweeter, can handle it, and dish it out! It can very convincingly convey the tones of even an acoustic/electric guitar, better than many more expensive amplifiers. At 75 watts, it will be a formidable club gigging amp!
I could go on and on, but, may I refer you to the Line 6 web site, as well as many video demonstrations on the web elsewere, and I think you will be convinced as I was. This is my amp, Line 6 is pointing the way to the future, and my next stop will be a Line 6 Tyler variax!
Thank you Line 6, for the best amp I've ever owned, and thank you Musicians friend, for the great deal, and fast, free shipping! Rock on, everyone!

I bought the Spider Jam with the idea of using it to practice soloing over loops. It has a lot of drum patterns programmed into it and the ability to record your own loops, with as many tracks as you like, is nice. The problem is that, with so many bells and whistles, there are too many opportunities for things to go wrong. The amp worked fine the first day I had it. On the second day, the volume came on at a very high level and the only way to stop it was to turn the amp off and then back on. On the third day, the guitar input was extremely low and no amount of knob turning or cable changing fixed it. Again, the solution was the old "turn it off and then back on" answer. On the fourth day, the amp informed me that it had a "firmware error" and, according to Line 6's website, I needed to get a SD card (no larger than 2GB?) and download and install new software. That did it. I returned the amp. The idea of being able to use built in loops to practice is a great idea, but I don't want to deal with an amp that is going to surprise me with unexpected software updates and quirky "ghost in the machine" digital errors. The Spider Jam is a nice idea, but it's just too unreliable to make it very usable. You could NEVER use this amp in a live performance situation without a backup handy. You never know what is going to happen when you flip on the power.

    Comments about Line 6 Spider Jam 75W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

    I've only had this amp for a month but I'm loving it so far ! The first time I used it I jammed for 3 hours straight. The jam tracks are fantastic for building your chops. You can adjust the key or tempo to any of the built in songs. There are plenty of usable tones & it's easy to dial in an acceptable sound for most any genre. I haven't even begun to tap into all the capabilities of this unit. There is a learning curve as with any software based music gear so you have to read the manuals to learn how to operate it. I do not have a foot pedal & I'm getting along just fine for jamming, recording, & practicing. This amp doesn't have enough power for a performance amp but it does have plenty of volume for jamming at home, garage , etc. I wish it would accept a higher capacity SD card as they fill up pretty quick. It's a great tool for capturing your song ideas, learning cover material (just load your songs & practice away. This is hands down the best learning tool I've encountered. I'm 54 & have been playing since I was 17. I'm an experienced hobbyist that has owned many guitars, amps & recording gear over the years. Want to hear a sound sample ? I recorded a guitar part to one of the jam songs entitled Unexcited. The song is based on BB's The Thrill Is Gone. It's in Bm. I increased the tempo. I added one guitar part to the backing track that consisted of bass, drums, & keys. I used a Squire Affinity Strat, fresh out of the box (not setup yet). You can go to this website> reverbnation dotcom. Search bruce landis. The song is at the top of the page. It's called SpiderBlues-01. This will give you an inkling of what is possible with this unit.

    A Must for Busy Folks who Play at Home

    By Felirawks

    from Brazil

    Comments about Line 6 Spider Jam 75W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

    Well, I bought the Spider Jam because I wanted a studying/practicing tool to use quietly at home, even with headphones on, but that could allow me to go full blast when I felt like too. I also wanted a looper for my riffs, a drum machine, a tuner - all in a single package, and... You guessed. Line 6's Spider Jam can do all those things easily. Note that I do have a respectable collection of "boutique" amps, effects and guitars, but with a busy professional, non-music-related life, it's just too much of a hassle to unpack all those pedals and chain them together, and tube amps are NEVER quiet enough to play at home, especially at night. Being a solid state amp, Spider Jam allows me to play without disturbing the neighbors, and, in the wee hours, I can just plug my headphones in and I'm good to go for hours and hours. Besides all of that, Spider Jam has EXCELLENT jam tracks that you can use for practicing, which you can control speed and pitch INDEPENDENTLY! It also has a built-in tuner, decent digital effects and the reverb is controlled by a knob in the front panel, just like a regular amp. Seriously, I can't stress enough how much this marvelous tool made my life easier as far as practing and having fun at home is concerned. I recommend it even for those who have serious gear at home. You just can't beat the simplicity and convenience that Spider Jam can provide!

    Comments about Line 6 Spider Jam 75W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

    I just bought this amp with the Line 6 FBV short board; they work well together of course. The amp is a lot of fun with the looper and presets and the endless ways you can tweak your tone. I love the amp but there are a few things which could be better.

    You must use a 2 gig or smaller SD card or it reboots if you try to save to a bigger card. So just get a bunch of small Sd cards before they are unavailable--only a few places still have them--which is kind of a pain.

    It does record nice but I haven't figured out how to record the mic input and the guitar input at the same time, so I always have to do two tracks. There is a switch which switches the input for recording back and forth from mic input to guitar jack.

    With the short board you can turn the looper and presets on on the fly, but you must put the foot pedal in the recording mode, and when the FBV is in the record mode you have to switch it back to channel mode to switch different guitar tones. So to switch to a different guitar tone you have to do another track to reset it.

    Anyway, I just thought these few drawbacks could have been easily figured out and fixed. Hopefully the next generation can take the more available SD cards, record more than one track at a time, and make the FVB do all the functions in one mode.

    However, it's nice having all the gimmicks for having fun in one package. Even thought I give it four stars instead of five, it "is" worth the low price, and I would buy it again knowing what I know now.

      Comments about Line 6 Spider Jam 75W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

      Frankly I own a lot of Line 6 gear from a Pocket Pod tucked in a guitar case as a mobile practice rig to my stage set up of POD XT Live gear. I have taken to this amp like a duck to water follows the classic Line 6 logic when it comes to tweaks and changes ( though not much is needed) a bump of a knob here a scroll of a menu there and presto... TONE. I purchased it with an elevated stand so it is comfortable and easy to use I also bought the MkII shortboard but after a 2 weeks still haven't plugged it in to see what else remains in this little powerhouse. Order the 2G SD cards online they are cheap and plentiful, (you probably won't find any in a local store) I dig this amp keeps me up late working on new ideas and grown' notes, uploaded without issue to my PC. inputs are awesome... No complaints (well wish it had a cover but a girlfriend is making me a custom one so...) 5 stars and an A++ for Line 6 Spider Jam!

      I have not gigged with it yet, although for small-medium stages this will fit great. I don't like the tube amps and pedal systems most people seem to go for. This amp is perfect for simplicity, you can build in so many settings and then use a footswitch to switch between 4 channels at a time (comes with wah and volume pedal too both are quiet good) It takes a while to get a perfect tones you want, but you definitely can. I go for the nice Dream Theater tone and surprisingly got very close to the sound. Unless you can afford a Mesa, this amp is great. SO many build in drum tracks/songs to jam with as well.

      Comments about Line 6 Spider Jam 75W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

      This amp is good for the bedroom guitarist or somebody that never plays out and could benefit to have the backing tracks. This amp will not impress the seasoned guitarist and will not surprise you on the quality. It's exactly what you would expect from a Line6
      The basics are easy to work. You can start a backing track, record yourself playing with it, and can adjust the tone pretty quickly. It takes a lot more time and effort to dial in the right tone. You can get close very easy, but dialing it in is pretty difficult.
      I will give it credit, the reverb is very impressive compared to what I was expecting.
      Not bad, not Good, for the money I'd look around for something a little different.

      This is more than I ever expected in a small practice amp. I can put on my head phones and play for hours no need to call in the band. This is a great way for just you and the bass man to tighten up and improve your playing skills. The loops are endless and makes recording and writing your own music fun and easy. Only had it for a week or two, so I still have a lot to learn about this awesome masterpiece. This is what I've been needing for years and didn't no anything like this existed. If you are a beginner or seasoned man this is for you. Thank you Line 6

      Here it is, this amp is a blast if your playing at home by yourself or with a friend. The recording function is great to record your own stuff, plus you can overdub on-top of yourself (awesome) Great fun plus the tuner is amazing. Downside... the sounds are really generic. You won't find "your sound" on this amp. It's just kind of blah when it comes to the sounds. The back tracks are fun and this amp is a blast to jam to! If you're looking for a fun practice amp, buy this one. If you're looking for a performance amp with power, pass this one up.

      A fun but serious amp

      By Anonymous

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Line 6 Spider Jam 75W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

      The Spider Jam is an amp I could recommend to anyone. If you need your boutique tube amps get them. I've played for 43 years and I find the tone quality to be outstanding. A rich full bodied tone can be easily dialed in with a touch of good delay or reverb to please any professional. You can jam with the onboard band or jam alone with high quality drum tracks. The playback recordings of your guitar are high quality. Can't tell if it's live or recorded. A great purchase for anyone. I play an American Standard Strat or Telecaster.

          Junk the G-Dec. I just traded in my G-Dec-30 at a GC and got this Spider Jam. What a difference! Clear sounds, the manual is understandable, loads of presets, the list goes on and on. No comparison to the G-Dec. Get one of these now and be thankful you did.

          Comments about Line 6 Spider Jam 75W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

          Love the amp. Lots of fun to use, and can spend hours practicing to the various backing tracks, which will help me improve as a guitarist. I have two items I would like improved.

          1) The volume between amp models is inconsistent, getting much louder as the amount of gain/distortion increases. If I want to bounce around between backing tracks and song styles, the amp model changes, which means I have to keep adusting the volume on my guitar. There had to be a way to allow the sound to change between models, yet keep the output level consistent. I am not the only one to post this or call them about it, so they really should consider this going forward.

          2) It would be nice to have a larger display and/or a display that tilts forward so I don't have to stand directly over the unit to see what options are selected.

          Other than that, this is a fantastic value and I highly recommend it.

              Comments about Line 6 Spider Jam 75W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

              The amp had many different sounds to play with but everything relys on a sercet board within the amp so if something goes wrong with that the whole amp is shot.
              All the different distortions were great, they really helped me figure out what kind of sound i wanted from an amp.
              It was a nice enouph amp but the input jack kept falling back into the amp even though i kept tightening the bolt on it

              Non-loopers beware!

              Comments about Line 6 Spider Jam 75W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

              Overall: Clean sounds. Excellent modeling tools, pre-recorded loops. Power perhaps not stage amp level. Front control knobs cheap plastic, feel unstable. One-trick pony could be priced lower.Issues: (1) Screen font small = user unfriendly, like reading small paperback in dimly-lit subway. (2) Guitar compression hard-wired, cannot control amount or parameters. Cannot even turn off (acoustic work). (3) Imported wav loops MONO ONLY, 16 bit. Wav import hard-wired to the MIC/AUX track = you cannot control vocal audio levels after import! (4) Not a DAW recorder = (4.1) No transport controls. ?Play? button only. Punch play, loop starts. Punch play again loop stops, jumps back to beginning. No fast forward, reverse, pause. (4.2) No loop management. Loops cannot be chained. (4.3) No "song" management. Loops cannot be altered once recorded. No add measure, change part, alter ending.Conclusion: Nice practice amp. Non-loopers beware! SJ clearly not meant for stripped-down DAW work built-in to amp.
