OVERVIEW

Amp modeling and digital effects in a classic tube amp.

The Spider Valve amp head delivers 12 channels of amp modeling - combined with several flavors of built-in modulation, delay and reverb — driven by an all tube, all Bogner amplification design boasting 6L6 power tubes and 12AX7 preamp tubes.

Spider Valve™ is the result of a groundbreaking collaboration between Line 6 and Reinhold Bogner fusing the versatility of modeling with the performance and feel of a world-class tube amplifier.

Just as Line 6 revolutionized the world of amps through pioneering modeling technology, Spider Valve shatters the boundaries of tube amp performance by applying that same tonal range to Bogner's all-tube amp design, boutique component selection and stellar voicing.

Combining the performance, response and feel of a well crafted tube amp with the inspiring capabilities of amp and effect modeling - the Spider Valve amplifier delivers the best of both worlds.

Modeling + Tubes

The Spider Valve design combines 12AX7 preamp tubes with Line 6's signature modeling front-end, a marriage that allows each part of the sonic equation to deliver what it does best: creamy, cascading distortion and enriched harmonics from the tubes, and 12 of the world's finest amp models and seven stunning effects from the modeling front end. And, of course, perfectly matched 6L6 power tubes driving Celestion® Vintage 30 speakers to deliver unprecedented sonic impact and spatial imaging.

With the simple front-end controls and display, programmable patches and presets are instantly within reach. Tweak your tone even further with the front panel Presence, Drive, Bass, Mid and Treble controls: this is a true-blue tube amp, and it acts like one, responding and delivering all the analog detail, performance and warmth of every amp model and effect.

Unleash your effects arsenal.

From the DL4™ stompbox to the Echo Farm™ plug-in, Line 6 effects have achieved cult status in top studios and stage rigs of discerning guitarists. With Spider Valve, Line 6 delivers a palette of top grade integrated effects - easily accessed and tweaked from the front panel using the SmartControl FX knobs.

Modulation

A choice of phaser, chorus or tremolo lets you tweak your tone from rich luscious modulations to dramatic orbital gyrations.

Delay

From the swirling feedback of the sweep echo to the organic decay of the tape echo, Spider Valve delays provide an unmatched level of dimension and depth.

Reverb

The Spider Valve effects arsenal is complete with a dedicated reverb control — allowing you to dial in anything from subtle ambiences to cavernous spaces.

The Bogner Story

Reinhold Bogner, the principal designer at Bogner Amplification, had been designing and building amplifiers long before leaving Germany in 1989. Moving to Los Angeles he quickly gained the trust of many influential players including Steve Stevens, Dan Huff, Allan Holdsworth, Mike Landau and Steve Vai who sought out his skill at modifying and custom building their amps.

But it was overhauling and revitalizing Eddie Van Halen's legendary 1968 Marshall® Plexi in 1992 that propelled Bogner to legendary status and inspired him to launch his own high-end amp company, Bogner Amplification. Acclaimed for their rich, robust tones, channel-switching sophistication and sonic versatility - Bogner amps have earned a maniacally devoted following among discerning guitarists such as Jerry Cantrell, Lyle Workman, Wes Borland, Chris DeGarmo, Keith Urban, Richie Sambora and many others.

Using only premium components - in tandem with a level of craftsmanship that can only be referred to as "artistry"- Bogner amplifiers more than deserve their exalted reputation. Ever the restless creator, Bogner brought those same priorities, standards and sensibilities to bear on the Spider Valve design. Each Spider Valve amp--the 112, 212 and HD100-- combines the talent and experience of Bogner, arguably the tube world's leading light, with the know-how and technological savvy of the world's leader in modeling, Line 6.

the leap from Vetta...

By Jaldeee

from Buford, Georgia

Comments about Line 6 Spider Valve HD100 100W Guitar Amp Head:

I recently traded in a Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier to pick up a used Vetta (v. 2.03) with the FBV Longboard. I wanted one since I was a kid, and was thrilled to see one of the originals with all the updates. After a month or so, I was getting tired of constantly scrolling through edit pages and adjusting volume levels from 5 different sources. Then, when I almost lost hope, I found a used Spider Valve HD that the owner must of had for less than a month. I made the trade once more and was floored by the performance. I'm a big fan on Bogner amps, and with the Line 6 versatility, it was a no-brainer. In no time I was dialing in spongy, bold metal tones and spacey, rich cleans...it made me realize how much I missed my tube's 'character' in my Mesa.

Very nice amp

By NettysMan

from Hanford CA

Comments about Line 6 Spider Valve HD100 100W Guitar Amp Head:

I have only had it for about a month i bought the extra warranty (Always a good idea) I had plenty of money to buy all the expensive high end amp heads my budget was about $6000 so i wasnt worried about price. but i choose this one cause it sounded very good plus i have to play were noise is a factor and i heard you had to crank up those high end tube amps to get the most out of them, you can get all kinds of sounds out of it and you dont have to crank it up too loud. i was a little aprehensive about buying line 6 their spider amps are not made very well but this amp is very solid.... so far im happy you get all the metal sounds you could ever want good clean sounds its a good ideah to at least get the footswitch for it. hope this helps someone

Metal Head's Dream Come True!

By Xx DBENC xX

from Port St. Lucie, Fl

Comments about Line 6 Spider Valve HD100 100W Guitar Amp Head:

I've had mine for 4 weeks now and I must say I couldn't be happier! I'm so glad I bought this amp. The presets are great but you can deff dial in your own tone and it is sooo versatile. I play mostly Hi-Gain Metal but the clean, crunch and blues tones you can get out of this thing are just incredible. I sold almost all my pedals except I run a sonic stomp and a opto compressor through the FX loop that cleans up real well. Only beef is that the volume defaults for each preset are super loud and when you switch through them the volume changes dramatically. All in all for 8 bills this amp could go for double that and I'd still buy it again. Great job Line6. By far there best amp yet.

unbelievable.

By Cebux10

from Atlanta, GA

Comments about Line 6 Spider Valve HD100 100W Guitar Amp Head:

Everything i read about this amp is true. Bogner and Line 6 did an amazing job of combining the best of both worlds. what stood out to me is the variety of tones that are possible to dial in using only the amps natural distortion. The gain and tone controlls are very active in shaping the tone giving the player a huge arsenal of killer tones. Also the clarity of the spider valve line is unsurpassed. The "clean" channel remains completely undistorted even at the highest volume settings. This mixed with completely quiet opperation at high gain settings makes this amp truly amazing. Overall it's a great amp, one that i would have easily payed double the sticker price. I'm a new believer in line 6.

Pleasant Surprise!

By JzerauJ

from Casper, WY

Comments about Line 6 Spider Valve HD100 100W Guitar Amp Head:

To be honest, I was expecting a mediocre amplifier. With the price so low I figured I would try it out and if it was horrible I'd send it back. I have always been a big fan of Line 6 effects. I've been using the POD XT Live for about 7 years now. I love the effects and the versatility, however I have always hated the distortion. I've always had to use my amp's distortion regardless. I was skeptic of this amp to say the least. However, I am now a full believer in Line 6. This amp sounds great. The distortion channels do not disappoint. The clean channels are awesome. Not to mention that you can tweak anything you want. Now the thing I love the most about this amp is that it is amazingly quiet. This is a studio musicians dream. If you do a lot of recording with varying types of music, do not hesitate to take advantage of such a low price on such a fantastic piece of equipment. Another shining point is that this amp is extremely loud. It is very impressive how loud this thing can get. I own an H&K Triamp, a Mesa Triple Rectifier, and a Peavey XXX. Let me tell you that this amp compares to all of the above. I purchased the matching cab with the celestion 30's and it's a lethal combination. I am very impressed. By the way, do not buy this amp without an FBV pedal. The shortboard controller has been a necessity. People, this amp has Bogner's name on it. How can you go wrong with something designed by the man himself. If you are considering purchasing this amp, I say go for it. You will not regret it. I only regret the fact that I didn't purchase it earlier.

Best Amp I've Played

By brettless

from tucson, az

Comments about Line 6 Spider Valve HD100 100W Guitar Amp Head:

I've gone through 3 head a line 6 spider 3, marshall mg100, and a peavey valve king, and I just got this and this was the amp that answered my prayers. It has everything that ive been looking for in an amp. I almost got a marshall jcm 2000 but I was worried I wouldnt get the gain that I wanted then I found this amp. It has all the cleans and all the gain anyone could ever want. If youre looking for a very versatile amp with all tube power, from bogner no less, buy this, hands down best amp out there.

line 6 hd100

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Line 6 Spider Valve HD100 100W Guitar Amp Head:

I went to a local guitar shop and plugged into a classic Mesa Boogie Dual Rec. I love the way those sound, I play metal so everything's there for me. I love everything that you can get from an amp, so the boogie's always sound good clean as well. Right after trying the Boogie, the local rep started talking about Bogner. I've never played one, but always wanted to hear it. He didn't have the alchemist, or uberschall, but did have the hd100 from Line 6. I was already up to par with line 6, jamming on the spider III before. I never really fell "In Love" with Line 6 by playing the spider III, so going to the Tube Line 6 I was hoping more. All I can say about this amp is it is the best amp that i have ever played. Reihnholdt Bogner isn't a legend yet because he's not dead, so he must be a walking God.

The greatest amp....EVER?!?

By GuildNovaLover

from Saint Petersburg, FL

Comments about Line 6 Spider Valve HD100 100W Guitar Amp Head:

First off, I have been playing non stop for 17 years and have owned every type / name brand amp made. I Used to use only Peaveys, then I moved on to Crates, but now, I'm done....I'm married for life to my Line 6 Spider HD100. Why? A man name Reinhold Bogner, that's why!! If you have no idea who Mr. Bogner is, look him up or ask Eddie Van Halen (you can trust him, right?). Bogner is the ONLY man Eddie trusted to overhaul his world famous 1968 Marshalll Plexi (yes, the one you have heard on every VH album). However, did you notice on For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge that Eddie's tone went from Great to AMAZING, from "Brown" to GOLDEN? Well that's because the amp that has been behind Eddie's tone since day 1 was redone by Bogner and he made it better than ever. Once people found out who made the tones on that album EVERYONE hired Bogner to do their album, to the point that Bog's made so much money rehauling the world's most famous guitar players amps that he started his own amp company (not CHEAP!!). So somehow, Line 6, who already had their own very good name in the industry, got Bogner to create an amp for them. What did he do for them? He invented the greatest amp EVER!! HANDS DOWN!! You can dial up ANY tone you can imagine with this amp, ANY TONE, I've done it!! I have my head pushing a very old Marshall 4x12 loaded with original Greenback's from the 60's. Hear's what you do, dial through the presets and find a tone (any tone from pure clean, the country twang, SRV blues, classic rock, new rock, metal, DEATH METAL, and everything in between) and then you tweak THAT tone with the dials and amp modes (12 Channels of amp modeling, go find a $3500 Marshall head with that, YOU CAN'T!!). The Presence dial is GODLY!! You can tweak every tone, and every effect and every amp model and 4x12 that's inside it!! I use this amp everyday for 8-10 hours a day and it sounds better everyday. I have recorded with this amp and it records amazingly also. I have NOT reviewed anything on this site before, why? Because there has not been anything new that came out that was worth reviewing. EVERY other amp company is just making the same amps. This company did something different, they made EVERY AMP in ONE AMP. If you have played any Line 6 tube amp before you know how they are, now throw in the mind of Bogner and you are done. The ONLY problem? The book that comes with it. Now, it's a thick book, but there are only about 15 pages in english and it seems like it was written by a guy who just got out of a technical school and he does NOT explain how to really use this amp. So do what I did, play with it for a few hours, you'll fall in love with it even more and it'll truly be YOUR customized amp to your specs and you'll know every inch of this amp.

Line6 has done it again

By Tim Russell

from Granada Hills Ca.

Comments about Line 6 Spider Valve HD100 100W Guitar Amp Head:

This really was a no brainer. Line6+Bogner. I also own a Spider II 150 combo a killer and indistructable amp (was dropped before the first gig). Tried the Spider Valve 2x12 combo and I thought it was loud. Well the HD100 and 4x12 is pure genius. This amp Has everything a guitar player could ever need. A little noisy though, but a gate takes care of that. The only the bad I can say is that at this time, there is no cover available for the cabinet from Line6. But it's a small bad and the Quality makes up for it!

One word ; AMAZING

By Smackthis

from Jacksonville,Florida

Comments about Line 6 Spider Valve HD100 100W Guitar Amp Head:

Over the past 27 years I have played just about every named of amp on the market, I actually toured the southeast circuit in the late 80's and swore by Crate but after buying a Line6 2 x 12 combo a year ago I had to get this beast, I WISH I HAD THIS AMP 15 YEARS AGO.. who knows where my music could have went. I honestly mean this, you can't go wrong with this amp at all, it sounds fantastic and it has just enough effects for me, I dont use much anyway, but this thing is a beast and I LOVE IT, you will too ... go get you one.
