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 have not used the amp much but have had recurring problems with it "freezing up" when I did. I would hear a loud pop from the speaker and it would be dead. Sometimes it would take several power cycles before it rebooted properly and worked again for a while.

Just recently it started to make an annoying humming noise when turned on. The hum is independent of power source, inputs, settings or volume. Something in the circuitry has gone bad. Factory reset had no impact.

Even without the loud hum, there is also a white noise hiss when the amp volume is turned up that is exceptionally loud and annoying.

The microphone input for me was almost useless for vocals. I never could get decent vocal output and reverted back to a twenty something year old Peavy powered mixer for my mic PA system.

What can I say, a lesson learned. I'll salvage the speaker and what parts may be useful. The rest is going into the landfill. It's 3 months out of warranty.

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

      With today's technology this amp should be the norm not the exception. It has tons of backing track options. It allows for mic input with processing see rate from th guitar. I can record drums vocals and a second guitar all at the same time. This amp is amazingly versatile. And still small and light. With today tech all solid state amps should have at least this much awesomeness

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

      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:

        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.

        I would have given it five stars, but it takes a little time to learn how to use it, but the book and the youtube videos really help. Too, it will only take up to a 2G SD card. If you try a bigger one the amp will reboot every time you try to save a file to it, so make sure you use a 2G SD or smaller. Other than those two things it is an awesome tool. The mic input makes it a small PA too, so it is all you need to do solo gigs. I love it!

          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.

            I upgraded from a Marshall (which I genuinely dislike). This Line 6 is an amazing amp. So many choices on the sound you can get out of it, any metal tone, any clean tone and whatever is in between. For me, Dream Theater's sound is what I was going for and i got it perfectly without the complexity of a Mesa and the price of it. It comes with jam tracks and drum machines and built in sounds. The presets are only good to take and make your own out of them. Really simple amp to use, which was great for me because I don't have the patience to adjust the amp for hours. Only negative thing about this I would say is it is really heavy. other than that, for the price you will never find an amp better than this. Get it.
