I was looking for a 15-25 lb amp that would be easier to lug around for jam sessions so I bought this and a couple days later, bought the Vox AD30VT because I was a bit unhappy with the Lin 6. Actually, I wasn't really that disappointed... more than anything, I couldn't get a 'clean sound that would overdrive when picked hard' type of sound which is what I really like. On the 4 channels, the clean channel is dull and lifeless. I'm used to older Fenders and this is their strong suit. The Line 6 has a clean channel, but that's about it. It sounds about like plugging directly into a board. The Crunch is not impressive either. There is no Rolling Stones sound in here! I spent hours trying to get the sound that it took two seconds to get with the Vox. No comparison. If you want that 'on edge of breakup sound', the Line 6 is NOT the amp for you. The Metal channel is OK, but I suspect most users will skip it. The Insane channel is actually very decent with LOTS of sustain. With either a bridge humbucker or even a bridge single coil, I felt very nimble doing basic soloing. To be honest, it was confidence inspiring and is probably slightly better than the best super overdriven Vox channels. On the effects, again... there's no comparison and the Vox wins hands down. With the Line 6, you basically have about 2% control over the effect and the actual sound quality is just radically better with the Vox. With the Line 6, I couldn't even get a nice roomy reverb sound going at all. On the other hand, with the Line 6, the effects section is VERY easy to use. At this moment, the Vox costs $90 more than the Line 6. If you are over 16 years old and want more than just the pure sustain from the Insane channel of the Line 6, I'd HIGHLY reommend the Vox over the Line 6. If you can swing it, it'll probably the best $90 you spend on your sound.

Well I got this amp about a year ago and I loved it. But now I want to play metal and do other stuff and the sound just doesn't sound right. I don't know, it is good if you just want to have something to practice with.

Spider II, a good choice

By AYTF

from Denver, Co

Comments about Line 6 Spider II 30 Amp:

This amp has been great to me ever since i got it for my birthday about a year ago. It is more powerful than it's compact size gives it credit for; I can easily stay up to volume with my band's drummer and other instruments. The features are desirable as well. There are no unnecessary effects, and you can lay 2 on top of eachother. The four completely cusomizable amp models which it comes with are impressive, especially the clean and insane channels. The tones have a sharp attack and are rarely muddy (unless the drive is too high). the built in noise gates and other "secret" features are definately a plus. I have not used this live, as it is not powerful enough. I play through my band's PA system out of this and it works wonderfully. I would reccomend this to anybody who is newer to guitar because of the relatively cheap price and the amazing sound and durability you get for the price.

Ideal for Hopeful Beginners and Novice

By HendrixHopeful

from Sidney, NE

Comments about Line 6 Spider II 30 Amp:

Great beginners amp, ideal for players who are looking for a vast array of different sounds and tones without buying each separate effect. It also serves as an effect workshop, players are able to combine different effects and tones to create many new unique sounds. For the money you can't go wrong. You'll enjoy every minute of this amplifier!

Excellent Buy!

By ayfine

from saint louis, mo

Comments about Line 6 Spider II 30 Amp:

I got the Line 6 Spider II 30 a few months ago, and there have never been any problems, and it has always supplied amazing tone, suituable for any playing style. Although it sounds best with humbucking pickups, a very nice noise cancelling effect is built into the amp. The effects are useful, but they are not that practical, the only ones I use are the tape delay and reverb. The only reason why I give quality 4 is because when you switch channels there is a bit of a delay. Other than that it is perfect. I've gigged with it a few times and it is crazy loud. Enough to fill a moderate sized venue. Stop thinking and buy it!

Great Sound, Amazing Features, Nice Volume

By nickv1025

from Connecticut

Comments about Line 6 Spider II 30 Amp:

This amp has a truly great sound, and is an amazing buy for the price. You can get the volume up very high (when it's up almost all the way, it gets a little more bass than you want.) Great features like tremolo, phaser, etc. The four amp models make it possible to play any type of music with this thing. Great value, a very good buy!

VERY good practice amp

By MafroPetee

from Altamonte Springs, FL

Comments about Line 6 Spider II 30 Amp:

VERY nice amp. 30 watts makes it pretty loud for practice. I wouldn't use it in a gig or during a band practice, because you can't hear it over the drums. It has lots of effects for creating your own sound, and the INSANE setting gives it more punch than Mike Tyson. Gives very nice clean tones too, and everything else in between. The only complaint as far as sound quality goes, is on very high gain settings, it sounds a bit too processed when when playing rhythm, but with lead it sounds perfect.

GREATEST AMP FOR NON GIG PLAYERS

By TOM69

from Levittown Pa

Comments about Line 6 Spider II 30 Amp:

If you are in just a little garage band like me, and dont really play an to too big gigs, this is the amp for you. It still packs a pretty mean punch when you put distortion on, but the clean is just a beautiful as a free flying dove. So it really doesnt matter what kinda of music you play its the greatest.

Can't Beat the Price!

By 1995*Strat

from Cleveland, OH

Comments about Line 6 Spider II 30 Amp:

This 4 channel solid state-modeling amp with 12 inch Celestion is a very good deal. I bought one 2 years ago for $199 and I thought I got a good deal. At the new lower price you can't go wrong. The clean, crunch, metal, and insane channels all sound very good and can be foot switched with an optional pedal. All channel sounds can be tweaked and saved and you also have the ability to restore the factory presets. This is a very good beginner or warm up amp.

Line 6 Spider II

By Brando

from Roseville, CA

Comments about Line 6 Spider II 30 Amp:

This is a great amp. The features are great, and the amp models are very authentic. I play an Ibanez RG321 through mine, and it sounds phenominal. The clean channel is warm and has very full tone. The crunch channel gets a very good, warm classic blues/AC/DC tone depending on the ammounts of distortion you use. The metal channel gets a rectifier sound that sounds kind of like early MetallicA. Finally, the insane shannel is just that, insane! It's like a modified Mesa/Boogie dual rec. with a compressor/sustaner, wich makes it great for solos and pinch harmonics. The effects section is very easy to use, as well. The first knob has flanger, chorus, phaser, and tremelo(wich is like turning your volume knob up and down really fast). The second knob has sweep echo, tape echo, and reverb. It also has a noise gate and a gain booster. The only problem ive had with it is that its not loud enough to do gigs. Other than that, great amp for the $$$.

Power, Versatility, and Affordability

By mynamehere

from Las Cruces, NM

Comments about Line 6 Spider II 30 Amp:

The Spider II 30's 30 watts is surprisingly loud, and the Celestion 12" Speaker kicks it out with ease. The versatile effects and the four channels are a nice touch for an amp in this price range, and it is quite durable.

A True Metal Amp

By RockerPhone

from Royal Oak, MI

Comments about Line 6 Spider II 30 Amp:

This amp can keep up with most of the prefered amps. It comes with four kinds of distortion that allow you to sound like Black Sabbath, Metallica ect. Also, there a six FX built in. Chorus/Flange, Phaser, Tremolo, Sweep Echo, Tape Echo, and Reverb. Plus hidden features that allow you to save tones to the amp. Noise Gate and Boost Distortion are the great hidden features. Noise gate takes the hiss out of the back. Boost distortion adds more distortion. It is definetly a must have.

Great

By Badger_man05

from Janesville WI

Comments about Line 6 Spider II 30 Amp:

I bought this amp recilenty and it was about the best desion that i have made in the last 3months. This amp the Line Six 30watt has all the toys to keep your fingers happy form the massive distorion of the overdrive to the calm southing sound of the clean channel. The coolest thing about this amp is the 2 channel fx nobs. They can bouth be active at the same time also. They are alot of fun to combine sound with the disortion and play around. This amp gives you the ability to hook up a footswich witch become very usefull when swiching channels. Over all this amp is a great by fore the price. I recomond it to all players wethier you play metal or blues and everything in between.

This Amp Rocks!

By SamO

from Malden, MA

Comments about Line 6 Spider II 30 Amp:

I was really impressed by this amp. The 'Clean' mode gives you a great vintage 50's sound, the 'Insane' provides a nice 60's overdrive if you turn down the drive, and 'Metal' gives you just that - thundering power chords and screeching Pinch Harmonics. You can get that haunting, melodious tone by adding a hint of Chorus/Flange and Sweep Echo. The 30 watts offer plenty of power, even for small gigs, and the 12" Celestion speaker performs great (no buzzing at high volumes!) The only negative with this amp is that you can't have chorus without the flanger too. Definitely worth your money.

Awesome amp

By 6-stringgirl

from Tennessee

Comments about Line 6 Spider II 30 Amp:

This is an awesome amp. It sounds great on every channel, and it's as solid as a rock. The only reason I gave it a 4.5 on features is because the 210 and 212 have more built-in effects. It's a great value, and it can really hold its own. It's great for many styles of music. I love this amp. This is one I'll always have around.

I like the price and the versatility of the amp. This amp is great for the songwriter who plays also plays guitar. Plenty of power and punch along with a dynamic amp modeling ability to get almost any sound you need/want. The delay fx is a real plus too.

A Great Amp

Comments about Line 6 Spider II 30 Amp:

I had a chance to play the Line 6 Spider II 30 Amp at guitar center and it sounded great. Its sound was very precise and it had alot of gain. It went very loud though I didn't get to test it full potential because of being indoors.

Great Amp!

By Schecter9210

from Raliegh, NC

Comments about Line 6 Spider II 30 Amp:

This is the only amp I have. I'm just starting out; I've been playing for about five months now and this is all I need. It's a great practice amp that is loud enough to be able to hear yourself when you play with another person. All of the channels and effects on the amp are great, and for the price, I think it's gotta be one of the best amps out there.

Spider II 30 amp

By paintball11

from RI

Comments about Line 6 Spider II 30 Amp:

The Line 6 spider II amps are very good quality amps in general. I tried this one at GC and was amazed at the sound quality and the number of effects for the price. Instead of this one though; I stepped up to the Spider II 112. I bought it for a bargain at $199. If you have the money, I'd recommend you step up to the 112. Unlike this one, it has 12 preset amp models and 75 watts of power! I haven't seen it online recently but try a local store; they might have it. The 30 is still is an excellent amp and is definitley worth the price but if you can afford it; step up to the 112 and you'll be glad you did. Note: One of the setbacks of both amps is you don't have much freedom with the effects as you would a standard pedal but they are still good quality and worth the price.
