Line 6 Spider II 112

Anyone know if this amp is any good

I am looking for something like this in style

It has to be good for a bedroom and loud enough for a gig in the pub

I really like a crunchy thick tone (but I use so many effects it doesnt really matter)

I currently have a marshall mg30 (it sucks)

Re: Line 6 Spider II 112

I just bought a 15 watt Spider II for my bedroom and it kicks major amounts of bootie.

I'd imagine the 1x12 combo would be just as good

Re: Line 6 Spider II 112

What do these things go for, anyway? My roommate just grabbed one from a buddy for $100, and while there's (imo) a ton of better options out there, for the price it seemed worth it for a bedroom practice amp so I didn't stop him or anything...

I think for the price, these are great bedroom amps.

I got mine for around 4 bills.

I just got one for practice at home. I like the idea of not having a chain of pedals sitting on my floor now. It's very versatile, pretty loud, and a great buy.

I'd check out the VOX Valvetronix combos...much better sounding than the Line6 stuff in my opinion.

Re: Line 6 Spider II 112

I have this amp and imo it totally rocks. I play many styles, using lots of different guitars, from stock strats to EMG equipped ibbys, and I can get almost any sound I need from it. Thing is, I only use about 2 of the amp models lol. The "red" Metal and "red/green" Cleans is pretty much all I need. I stay on the red metal channel pretty much 75% of the time, usually all I have to do is tweak my guitar volumes/tones, maybe the gain, to move to any syle I want. (And if Bodom is one of the sounds your looking for, dude its totally there )

Yes, most of the amp models are pretty cheesey, but the Metal setting is great. It can be very crunchy, thus why I like it, even at low volumes. I use for anything from SRV to EVH, Mayer to Maiden, eveything in b/w. My Evo strat nails Satch and Vai tones, and I really have a blast with it.
The effects are pretty decent, I utilize the delay pretty often. Using the Tap button, you switch up to some pretty long delays.

My only complaint (the same as many others) is that the clean sounds leave something to be desired, depending on what you need. Oh and how you cant use flanger or chorus independently, thats kinda, well, stupid.

More good news, it's great for low inside volumes. Even better, one of the freindly musician sights is selling all Line 6 combos for 100$ off. Need I say more?
