OVERVIEW

Line 6 technology in a easy-to-use and affordable format.

The Line 6 Spider III HD75 Amplifier Head delivers 4 amp models--clean, crunch, metal, and insane—that cover a broad range of essential rock sounds. These basic sounds can then be modified with a selection of effects. Now you can rule the stage with the Insane model with its truly massive gain or explore your sensitive side in the studio with the Clean model. The Spider III amp head will give you the dialed-in tone you want in an instant. Less tweaking. More playing.

New to the Spider III is a huge range of killer mid-gain guitar tones. A critical advancement was made to the sound and feel of the Spider III line when a discerning panel of artists focused in on the venerable "mid-gain" range of tone to deliver the complex, layered and dynamic amp sounds we all appreciate from classic and boutique amps.

Effects
A great amplifier isn't the only part of a great guitar sound. With Smart Control FX, an exclusive Line 6 feature that automatically dials in different effect parameters, you spend more time playing and less time tweaking. Simply find the effect that you want, turn the knob to your desired intensity, and you're done. You can even use multiple effects at the same if you wanna get really crazy.

Effects Models (Up to 2 effects simultaneous)
Phaser
Chorus/Flanger
Tremolo
Sweep Echo
Tape Echo
Reverb

Ins & Outs
When you're playing with your band on stage just put the Spider III amp head on stage and crank it up. When it comes time to record, use the headphone/direct out and plug it straight into the mixing board for world-class POD 2.0 direct tone used in pro studios and stages everywhere! You can also use the same out with headphones for practicing in your bedroom. Want to play along with your favorite songs? Plug into the CD/MP3 input and you're good to go.

Amp Models
Clean: Select this Amp Model and adjust the tone controls to get crisp, amazing clean tones, great warm jazz tones, and all the high-end shimmer you'll need with a generous amount of bottom end.

Crunch: This Amp Model is based on* a '68 Marshall Plexi 100 watt with a few added extras; The combination of a Variac and the jumped input channels creates that infamous brown sound.

Metal: This Amp Model is based on* the Mesa/Boogie Dual Rectifier. Use this Amp Model to get a tight and punchy, high gain Metal sound.

Insane: This model is Line 6's "dialed in for shredding" version based on* the Mesa/Boogie Dual Rectifier red channel. It combines the intensity and impact of Metal Red, but delivers more midrange and teeth for that bone-crushing, brain piercing insane grind.

Plug in and separate yourself from the rest.

I'd like to start by saying that I bought this head to accompany my 400 Carvin cab, for playing live. I use to own its little brother the spider II 30w combo and liked it for just jamming around the house.Well the spider III has a moderately good clean channel, which sounds beautiful with slight reverb and a little chorus thrown in the.The Crunch channel is actually one of my favorite...I run it with the bass, mid, treble and gain fully cranked, and the distortion bosst on, no noisegate and full reverb too. Its great for grungy type stuff and classic rock. I never really use the metal channel, the sound is to gainy and trebly. I actually run it as clean as possible and throw tape echo and slight phaser in there too.The insane channel is good for metal, you can play most death, and grind stuff pretty good on it. Too much gain can sound bad so I run it about halfway. Playing lead on it is kind of sketchy but it works.Other than that I might add that its a very durable amp...it's been in a couple of spills and keeps rocking, so for a decent cheap head I would go with this amp.

Granted, there are a lot of effects on this amp. same thing with many Line 6 amps, but the spiders all sound very digital. I don't know how anyone could use this amp and not hear the digital tones from it. I've used this amp before and I cant seem to find out the reason for the hype of this amp. it's not all that great. the only reason i would buy a spider series amp is if were the 15 watt combo and was just for home use. these are way too digital and a waste of money. WATTS =/= BETTER. my 30 watt Vox AD30VT can over power a drummer and still sounds better. stay away from high wattage spiders.

Ok I picked one up

By Rokdawg-hvZoB

from Texas

See all my reviews

I was in Dallas over Christmas time and kind of put out because my main amp was down. I have a New Year's eve bash coming up and can't be without my main amp. I haven't had a back up amp ever because my mian amp has been incredible to me for 14 years without so much as changing a tube. The main board died and I was left high and dry. While in Dallas I stopped by a music store to check it out. I was so blown away because I had every amp at my finger tips. I had a Marshall, a Boogie, and even could get an incredible sound in the clean mode that was very much like a smooth Fender Twin. It doesn't have the volume of a tube amp, but it's 75 watts, and that's plenty for most places. If you need more volume, run into the PA, the line out is incredible!! There's plenty of room to do a lot with this, your own limits are within yourself.

COOLER that you think

By Nicholas

from Sierra Vista, AZ

This head is pretty nifty for the price. There isnt very many buttons. The top left four are preset sounds. One is a Clean.(it is echo with some minor distortion, 1968 Marshall plexi 100 watt. There is a metal and insane, its basicly metal with less bass and mors fizz (its rather sratchy) you can turn off the effects of the presets but still keep the tone settings by bushing a combonation of buttons and turning it off and on. You can also overwrite them with your own. And if you mess up you can change them back with another combo/restart. Another cool feature is the tap fx. There is a button for the echo and a simulated tremolo. You push it multipul times and it playes as fast as you push it. It has two 4 ohm outsIt is compatable with the Fbv2 and fvb express foot pedals. But it can't ust the built in tuner.If it over heats. It wil automaticly shut down. I've nerer had a problem with it though.It also comes with a users guid that has blank diagrams of the tone knobs for you to wright your settings on.

Good Amp

By Speed Demon-QGVpT

from Winchester, TN

I got this and the matching 4x12 cab. Clean Channel is good for most clean sounds, adding chorus also sweetens it even more. Crunch channel is good for more of a classic Van Halen Tone with some extra edge to it. Metal Channel has a good amount of gain, but it doesn't quite cut it for what I like. Insane channel is great for just plugging in and playing Metal if your like me and don't want to hook up my pedals. Different pickups and guitars will dramatically affect your tone that you get from this amp. My Fender HM Start has a Dimarzio Super Distortion and sounds amazing with the amps distortion alone. My Jackson DXMGT has an EMG-HZ in it and sounds kind of dry, but sounds great with a Digitech Scott Ian Black 13.You can get many different sounds out of this amp, onboard FX aren't the greatest but at least they are there and they are fun to mess around with if you get bored. Buy this amp with confidence!

i was looking for my first head because i needed to complete my setup with my B-52 cab which is loud as hell. this head and the reviews made it seem good. it is good and the price is perfect for those like myself who are trying to do something with music like being in a band. this head isnt loud enough for me at practice, maybe thats just my metal instincts kicking in. i plan on buying some sort of boost pedal that ive been reading on. overall this head is perfect its got everything you need. sounds amazing and easy to use great for all styles. just make sure you know what your really getting before making a purchase, do your research people. feel free to email me for tips on helping get my amp to be louder, its my only problem.

Great Buy

By THUMBS of the

from LITCHFIELD, IL.

This little head is great for the price. Great sounds...good distortion...nice little effects.the only downfall is the pedal is sold separately. Line6 should really consider at the very least selling it with the scrolling channel pedal. Other than that, great amp! If you are a performing musician however, I would recommend getting the 150watt head I have used this a few times so far playing out and with 2 or 3 hundred people you need at least 150watts.

Great Head

By StratBuilder

from Winchester, VA

See all my reviews

This head is sweet. With all of the normal features, there are still some hidden features that one can utilize to achieve great tone. If you are someone like myself that plays quite a wide variety of music, this is the head for you. I can get any sound out of it that I want. Couple this with a floor effects processor, and there are no limits.

Great Solid State

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I bought this amp about 6 months ago now. And I gotta tell ya. If you like Thrash, Speed, and Heavy Metal, this is a great addition to your arsenal! I preferably like to just plug into the amp and chug away. I dont like how the distortion kinda smooths out when you turn the dis. knob all the way up, but if its about 1/2 to 3/4 of the way...OH YEAH! not a bad amp at all, in fact. BUY IT! You'll see what I mean

gets me by and then some

By metaldude212

from Plymouth, MN

See all my reviews

I got this head because I needed a relativly cheep half stack (I got the matching cab), and because I really like the in-amp distortion. Some things I don't like are the fact that it's pretty much made for a half stack, not a full. Another thing is it only seems to be good for heavy power chords. It sucks to solo on, you'll need a pedal for that, or at least I do anyways. I have an epiphone gothic sg, which isn't a very good guitar, so it could just be my humbuckers. Otherwise I get no feedback at all, even when I have it up all the way and standing right next to it, and its great for metal. Tons of gain and drive. Its not a professional grade amp. But its definatly good enough until you hit the big stage.

Granted, there are a lot of effects on this amp. same thing with many Line 6 amps, but the spiders all sound very digital. I don't know how anyone could use this amp and not hear the digital tones from it.
