The Spider IV is a tone jugernaut. It includes 16 ampmodels (clean, twang, class A, blues, crunch, high gain, metal, and insane), 8 red and 8 green (heavier version). You can create most all tones with these models, but if your not feeling creative there are 250+ preset artist and song tones. The majority of the artists are unknown, but the tones that they dialed in themselves are rock solid. As for the song presets, the best guitar songs from the 50's, 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's, and this decade have there tones programmed in the amp, this list includes Johnny B. Goode, Day Tripper, Gimme Shelter, Another Brick, Crazy Train, Back In Black, Enter Sandman, American Idiot, and many more. Line 6 could have saved some time by cutting down on the # of song tones, because many of the presets sound the same, like Hey Joe and Wind cries mary. Despite this Microscopic flaw, the Line 6 Spider IV is a fine amp with alot of other features, such as quick loop and auto wah.

I have had this amp for a very long time, I have had a 75watt spider since spider 3 and they are very heavy guitar amps, during my first two years learning how to play I used this and it is a massive bang for the buck. It comes with tons of effects for any playing style, on a scale of 1-10 for how much distortion, this amp gets a solid 8, the distortion is mad at lower levels but when you start kranking this powerhouse amp up it gets really intence, sometimes so intence you can't even hear your mids or treble anymore, that is a big downside to this amp, the sound starts to get muddy at high levels, I wouldn't use it for gigging for this reason, the other con to this is the sound can sound sort of digital like it isn't natural distortion, to bassy at times, I was never able to get the tone I have been craving for, mad house rocking distortion with clarity, the speaker just cuts out the mids and makes it sound to distorted. The good news is that this only happens at ridiculous sound levels, like gigging, if you are using this as a practice amp than it will suit you perfectly.

When I decided on this amp I really loved it. I played it numerous times in store and thought it was really versatile. It has several features that are very helpful, first and foremost the headphone jack. It allows me to practice in the house any time I want. It does have several "cool" features and can cover a vast array of sounds. However, getting to that perfect sound you want will be an afternoon project and then you need to be very careful when you save it or its gone for good. With the headphone it actually produces likable sounds. I recently plugged up to Marshall DSL40 at GC and realized (immediately) I had missed the boat on this purchase. The Marshall can produce a much wider spectrum of clean, crunch, overdrive, etc. you can literally produce an accoutic sound like to the heaviest drive. Effects will have to be purchased but you only need a chorus and flanger and you have most sounds covered. Finally, the tube v solid state is like night and day a it is warm, solid and bright all at once and a difference in sound that can only be heard, not described in a review
First off let me debunk a common told thing about Line6, Its not for just metal, and those who say that have not took the time to learn how to use this amp. I have always covered many types of music so sticking with one style amp is tough cause it kind of locks you in to one signature sound. Ive used Line6 Amps for years and until the Spider IV series I was never fully satisfied. So out of the box you can dial in sounds that no other Amp can give... but the beauty is in Connecting with Spider IV Edit and from a laptop dialing in what I want. Some think is a negative that you need the FBV Boards to link up to the computer but why would you own such a dynamic amp and not have the control board. Also being able to go online and download other users setups to try them out, and upload your own. All in All I cant be happier , I actually just purchased another 75w. They are loud enough to gig with,If you need a little more juice Mic it up to board with a Shure Mic and its sweet sounding.
THIS IS MY SECOND SPIDER IV , MY OTHER IS A 120. THIS THING ROCKS! I'M RETIRED NOW AND SIT IN A LOT IN SMALL CLUBS AND PARTIES AND I THOUGHT THE 120 WAS A BIT MUCH SO I GOT THE 75 THINKING THAT IT WOULD BE PERFECT . IT TURNS OUT TO BE PLENTY OF POWER AND THE SOUNDS ARE INCREDIBLE!
Just traded in my Fender Hotrod Deluxe w/ matching extension speaker for this Line 6 and shortboard pedal.....best thing I ever did ! Everything I need is one small compact package. Don't get me wrong, I love Fender stuff and have their guitars, but the Deluxe was just too clean and needed pedals to get it done. With this Line 6, I get clean cleans and dirty OD sounds w/ plenty of headroom. And by having the shortboard pedal, it's all right there on the floor w/ a well backlit screen, tuner, presets......add effects in real time. And I havent' even delved into the tons of other presets available online yet ! Can't wait. I'm having so much fun and I've been doing this for over 40 years. Wish I had one of these back in the '60's !!!
Features: This amp is loaded with features. The looper is a must have for any practicing musician. Theres more amp models than you'll ever NEED to use, but that doesn't mean you wont want to! The smart effects sound very good, and the handy LCD display really lets you fine tune your sound. Also you can't forget about the tuner! It's chromatic and it mutes your amp sound so you can tune on the fly during a gig. The FBV foot controller is a great (kinda pricey) add on. It doubles as not only a way to switch between 4 CHANNELS but also as a wah pedal. The wah sound leaves a lot to be desired, but hey. It's still pretty nice to have there. The song presets are fun to play along with, though they aren't the greatest sounding, its still fun to sit down and cycle through playing some of your favorite riffs. This is probably the most feature rich modeling amp out there, and you could own this for years and still not experiment with everything on this amp. It really lets beginning-intermediate guitar players find what they want to sound like. Sound: This is where this amp can fall a little bit behind some other modeling amps out there. Compared to the fender mustang and roland cube, I would say that this amp ties the roland for the best metal sounds. Theres a tone modeled after a famous dual rectifier on it! You can't go into playing this amp expecting it to sound like a couple grand all tube mesa, but it gets the job done. Loaded with treble middle bass gain reverb and channel volume controls, you can really get the most out of the amp models. If you're someone who's looking for crunchy or fender-esque types of clean tones, look elsewhere. Elsewhere being the fender mustang. Those amps knock the clean tones out of the park. Line 6, not so much. THE VOLUME ON THIS AMP IS LOUD. Pumping 75 watts of a solid state power section through a 12 inch speaker gives you some major punch. I never take it even past about 40% on the master, even playing with another guitar, bass and drummer. I've even taken this outdoors with a full jazz band and didnt have it that loud. This thing WILL melt faces in a school auditorium, trust me. Reliability and Durability: I've had this amp for almost a year now, and haven't encountered a single issue with it. It's fully solid state, so there aren't AS MANY things that could go wrong with it. When I first bought it, I accidentally carried it with my knee digging into the front vinyl grill on it, causing it to dent, but that isn't the amps fault, that was on me. It has strongly reinforced edges and a cab that looks like it could withstand WWIII so i have a feeling this amp is gonna be rockin for a long time. Overall impressions: This amp is good but only really for getting those heavy metal tones. It will work for hard rock or punk rock as well but anything more mellow than that and it begins to fall a bit behind its competitors. The song presets are a ton of fun, but nothing more. The sounds are oftentimes only a shell of what the true recording sounds like. This amp can dish out some nice rock tones.
when i first got this i was a begginer and it was cheap but i have trouble getting nice distortion out of this its a little too metally for me
I can't say one thing bad about this little beauty. This amp looks great and sounds great. You get a ton of options/presets at a great price option too. This thing has everything from crystal clear clean sounds all the way up to tight, chunky, gut wrenching lows. I love everything about it.
I recently received this amp as a present. The first thing I noticed was how much bigger it is than it seems. The cab is big but for a 75 watt with so much technology and power packed into it, this amp is very compact. Immediately after unboxing it, I noticed that the setup is very easy and simple. Like most amps, the initial play simply requires inserting the power cable into the back of the cab a standard outlet and flipping the switch. Navigating and editing effects and presets is a breeze, and using the tuner and looper is clearly explained with labels right on the amp. The next thing that really stuck out was how nice this amp sounded. I myself have always preferred tube amps because of there warm sound and soft tone, so I was hesitant to now own a solid state amp, but the sound quality is truly amazing. I have also been hesitant because I have heard amny a time that Line 6 has terrible qualtiy distortion, but I ended up loving it because you can get a very nice crunch when you combine the drive/gain with a clean or twang preset. The multiple effects make this amp perfect for jamming or learning, because they allow you to dial in your tone. Overall, this amp is a great buy and I would reccomend it to just about any home grown guitarist.
Like most of the spiders this one has tons of options. plenty of tones and models to suit just about everyones taste, It gets plenty loud, nice and clear. not really much to say that hasnt been said in a ton of reviews already. Unlike some other modeling amps you can even customize the effects beyond just turning the dial on the front, basically the effects section is a stomp box modeler as well. *One suggestion though get one of the pedals for it, with the pedal plugged into the amp and the usb into your pc you can download even more effects models AND it has on screen software to build presets(think guitar rig style), so much better then trying to do it all on the little LCD screen.
i wanted to grab an amp that had great rhythm tones and soring leads with plenty of effects on bored so i wouldn't kill myself over the price. i thought i was completely out of my head. but then while tooling around in a local gc and found this and i havent turned back since.
