Line 6 Spider IV Presser — Finding that perfect tone is a delicate combination of guitar, amp, effects and of course, the guitar player. Finding a combination that works can be difficult, especially if you play a variety of styles. A lot of modeling amps have come close to matching tube sounds at affordable prices, but hitting the trifecta of incredible tone, versatility, and great price is a rarity. The new Spider IV family of amplifiers wins across the board.
The bottom line for guitar players is that Spider IV offers all the great tones you want, when you want them. Turning one knob on the Spider IV takes you from a clean blues tone to an over-the-top pounding metal sound. Most Spider IV amps feature 16 amp models including two versions of Clean, Class A, Twang, Blues, Hi Gain, Crunch, Metal, and Insane.
The other thing to consider is the amount of effects and amp models that come with most Spider IV guitar amplifiers: over 20 deeply adjustable effects including a Red Comp, Fuzz Pi, Sine Chorus, Line 6 Flanger, Phaser, U-Vibe, Digital Delay, Analog with Mod, Tape Echo, Multi-Head, Lux Spring, and Vintage Plate among other plus a 14-second sound-on-sound looper. Whether you’re playing live or recording in the studio, that’s a lot of options.
Don’t know where to start? Most Spider IV amps come with over 500 artist-created and song-based presets, which is more than enough to get you started. For total control, Spider IV amps connect to Line 6 foot controllers like FBV Express MkII and FBV Shortboard MkII. Hook one up and control the looper, Pitch Glide, access your presets, take advantage of the volume/wah pedal and more.
Bottom Line — this is a killer amp. There are just too many things to like about the Spider IV. It’s got great tone, a ton of options and the ability to be loud enough to make your chest pound. What else could you ask for in an amp?
