I tested and tried a lot of tube amps when searching for my latest purchase, and when I found myself looking at the Line6 Spider Valve 112, the best of amp modeling and the warmth of true tubes, I had to try it. I ended up buying it and couldn't be happier with what I got.First, the good: This baby has -great- amp models of a lot of rather famous amps, and that makes it perfect for a person who changes tone a lot. It's also a high gain amp, and designed to be so, and so your tone doesn't diminish as your gain goes up. Also, you can actually bypass the digital preamp and plug directly into the tube power amp, meaning you can hear what your guitar sounds like as just itself, and still maintain warm tube tone. Dailing in tone can take some time, but it can be done with insane accuracy if you put the time in. The EQ knobs react differently for each amp model as per the amps modeled, so your tone's authenticity is maintained. The Celestion speakers are clear as a bell and give you great tone even at (actually... especially at) very high volumes. Not to mention the fact that you can use the amp's head to plug into other speakers with 8ohm and dual 4ohm outputs on the back. Some people doubt that the hybrid nature of this amp is a signal that it's not as responsive or tonally perfect as a real tube amp, and though that might be true in some cases, this amp is designed by Reinhold Bogner, and his ingenuity has made this amp able to maintain the perfect tone of many modeled amps and run it all over the perfect tube setup. Throw in an on-deck tuner and 32 slots for saving your presets and preferences and you've got one hell of an amp.Alright, now the bad. The on-board Modulation FX that Line6 puts on all of their amps, in my opinion, are a bit over the top. It's hard to dial in a tone that matches something you'd want on an old Black Panel, or something of the like, and the chorus/flange knob is sub-par for everything but metal. That being said, the delay knob is rather nice, especially with the unique Line6 sweep echo. The reverb is decent, and can be very modest or -way- over the top and sometimes it's hard to find just the right setting. The artist-programmed setups are cool, but really useless, especially for musicians who like to dial in their own unique tone, but since you still have more than enough room to design and save your own, it's not a big deal at all. One more great thing: FX loop. I think every tube amp should have a pre-out and pre-in but alas I've seen amps that lack them. This amp does indeed have an FX loop, and if you want to bypass the digital modeling preamp and just use your personal effects through the tube power amp, you can do that too.Overall, this is a great amplifier, and stands up to and beats many of the major tube amps in tone and versatility. Give it a good, long try when you're looking for your next amp and I think you'll agree. Happy hunting!

I had this amp for 2 weeks and returned it. I'll just explain my scoring:Features 3.5: The presets are cool. You get tons of different tones with this amp. The problem is that it's not much of a step above the Spider III in terms of tone. Response is obviously better because of the tube amp build. You can hear a difference, but just not a big enough one. On top of that, the "smart effects" completely suck. They should have built this amp as a Flextone Valve. To get decent Line 6 quality effects on this amp, you're still going to have to buy a Pod or run pedals. Half the reason a lot of people move to line 6 is to eliminate that need.My Flextone III was superior to this amp in every way in terms of features, with the exception of the tube warmth and response. That just wasn't enough for me to keep a lower quality amp.Quality 4.5 : It was built wonderfully. Everything worked as it was intended, and the amp looks good. No complaints here.Value 3.5 : $700 for a tube amp with built in effects is not an unreasonable price, especially considering you're getting Celestion Vintage 30s and a Bogner-designed tube build. However, none of the preset channel volumes are adjustable and saveable, and the initial sounds on them are set way too loud. I couldn't turn the master volume on this amp past 1 without getting my head blown off. My room was literally shaking as I'd switch through the presets, making it nearly impossible to use them in an apartment. For 40 watts and 1 12" speaker, you get incredible volume, but it's excessive and there's not good way to quiet the amplifier without sacrificing all of the tube tone.Overall 3.0 : In my opinion, if you're looking for an effects-based amp with versitile tone options for a broad variety of music, get a Flextone III or Vetta II. If you're looking for a tube amp, consider saving a little more cash and going with a Fender, Marshall, Hiwatt, Mesa, Bogner, or countless other quality amplifiers. I think that others could be really excited about this amp and love it, because it does have great tone. There are a lot of drawbacks to it though, and for me, the positives just could not overcome them. I sacrificed the tube warmth and response for overall better tone, practicality, and usefulness from the Flextone III. Still, give this amp a try at your local store. It might right for you.

Best Combo amp EVER hands down!

By English4bw

from Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Ask me a question

Have been playing pro 20+ years. In the past I've owned all of the top gear, you name it, I've used it. Picked this baby up for half-price for use at my church, where I play guitar for the worship team. The versatility of this amp is amazing. The tone is right up there with the best tube amps. If you take your time and tweak each user preset enough then you'll be very pleased with the tonal range coming from this amp. Along with the optional FBV Shortboard this setup will get you through just about ANY gig, regardless of the style of music. I always get the same reaction from other players when they first see my amp, "you use a Line 6? pfft." and then after they hear it during rehearsal or the gig itself it changes to, "Wow, that thing rocks! That's a Line 6? Nice tone..." etc.I'd totally recommend this amp to anyone looking for portability, versatility, and not having to drag a box full of effects to every gig. Wicked good job by Line 6 and Bogner.

My 1st valve amp

By Da' PixelDude

from Mexico City

I was really surprised when I got my Spider Valve. Nice compression and great tone flexibility. Promising interface experience with the FBV shortboard controller. Almost everything you need for gigs or at the studio... UNTIL I recorded yesterday with my american Telecaster through a Fender Hot Rod amp... There is a world of difference. I never played with an all-tube amp and analog pedals before. If you are worried about tone, you just have to go with the real stuff. Nevertheless, this is a great amp for several purposes if you understand this essential difference.

Great for live playing

By ToneJunkie-DGROl

from Dallas, Tx

I was having big problems with patch switching live. At first I tried analog pedals, next a mutlti effects unit. I finally ended up with this amp and I is one of the best live setups you could ask for. I traded a Boogie Recto Combo for this set up and it was well worth the trade. The only complaint I have is that this thing can get a bit muddy. This can be fixed with a little tweaking though. Also the foot pedal is laid out beautifully and makes switching very easy as well as turning off independent effects. This amp solved all my problems in one move and the versatility is unmatched by any other setup. One of the biggest incentives for me was that it had knobs for everything, no more scrolling thru menus to tweak tone. This is a godsend when you set up in a room that alters your tone.

Volume knob

By Mr. T-yk84E

from St. Louis

I play on this amp twice a week live.. we mic up the amps and play it through the house and it sounds great. There is so many different effects you can choose from on this beast, and I absolutely love it. Some might not like that you have to click through the different channels by hand, but be not afraid.. there is a foot pedal for it. THE ONLY PROBLEM this amp has is its volume knob. It is EXTREMELY sensitive and can freak out if you touch it even in the slightest way.

Not that impressed

By Megadeath3000

from Seattle

I'm a gigging musician and I'm not that impressed. I thought maybe the power tube section would be a good thing, but honestly it doesn't make that big a difference. The tubes make it louder, but no matter how loud you get you can't cut through in a mix with this amp.

Line 6 112 amplifier

By FenderStang65

from South Carolina

I've owned this amp for about 7 months now and it has not let me down. I was looking for a good tube amp to pair with my fender mustang that could also give it a more metal tone. I got this amp after deciding over a fender hot rod deluxe just because of all the options it gave and the fact that the tone of both amps were about equal. The built in amp models and effects are weak at points but get the job done and save you money on pedals. The presets are awesome while not all of them sound exactly like the song they say they are pretty close and you can normally dial them in. My only complaint is the volume knob is very touchy and just the slightest bump can leave you ears ringing. This is by far one one of the loudest amps i have ever heard. For the price this amp is gold, you cannot go wrong with it. Line 6 once again impresses me with a superb quality product.

Hot as Hell

Not only does this amp have tons of features, it has something Line 6 has been missing out on,, TONE!!! The tone is amazing for the price and the features make this amp a dream for guitarists!! My favorite features are: built in tuner, overdrive, noise gate, reverb, the Celestion Vintage 30, FX loop, and the direct output. Also, this combo has cab outputs that turn it into a fire breathing head!!!!! Spend some time with this amp!!! You can get basically any tone you want if you spend the time to dial it in!!!!!

GREAT AMP

By Anthony

from Florida

I use this combo amp primarily as a 40 watt head. I run a Marsall 1960A 4x12 cab (at 4 ohms) and I must say, its sounds great. Using this cab set up, the amp tends to run a little bright, but with the proper usage of strings and playing with the tone, this amp is by far the best sounding amp for the money. I can't say enough about Line 6. I was waiting for them to put out a tube amp and I must say they delivered. With 20 plus years of experience and owning many top brand name amps, I will never look back. Line 6 is my amp of choice. Make it yours...

great sustain with no high gain noise

By live to play

from bakersfield ca

I've been using the 5150111 amp and cab and this little amp takes it all. No high gain noise. This is a great amp for the money.I get every sound I like from clean to scream. I use my own effect pedals for the different sounds. I just ordered the HD100 I'm done with EVH sorry Eddie.
