The Spider Valve effects arsenal is complete with a dedicated reverb control ” allowing you to dial in anything from subtle ambiences to cavernous spaces.
The Bogner Story
Reinhold Bogner, the principal designer at Bogner Amplification, had been designing and building amplifiers long before leaving Germany in 1989. Moving to Los Angeles he quickly gained the trust of many influential players including Steve Stevens, Dan Huff, Allan Holdsworth, Mike Landau and Steve Vai who sought out his skill at modifying and custom building their amps.
But it was overhauling and revitalizing Eddie Van Halen's legendary 1968 Marshall® Plexi in 1992 that propelled Bogner to legendary status and inspired him to launch his own high-end amp company, Bogner Amplification. Acclaimed for their rich, robust tones, channel-switching sophistication and sonic versatility - Bogner amps have earned a maniacally devoted following among discerning guitarists such as Jerry Cantrell, Lyle Workman, Wes Borland, Chris DeGarmo, Keith Urban, Richie Sambora and many others.
Using only premium components - in tandem with a level of craftsmanship that can only be referred to as "artistry"- Bogner amplifiers more than deserve their exalted reputation. Ever the restless creator, Bogner brought those same priorities, standards and sensibilities to bear on the Spider Valve design. Each Spider Valve amp--the 112, 212 and HD100-- combines the talent and experience of Bogner, arguably the tube world's leading light, with the know-how and technological savvy of the world's leader in modeling, Line 6.

I have owned my share of Line 6 amps in the past, and have most recently been playing through my 150W Spider 2 stack. I was liking the tone I could get out of my amp, but did not have enough power to be heard over the rest of my band without the aid of a PA system. I was preparing to move towards a Mesa or a Marshall, but I was hesitant since Line 6 has been my sound for so many years. Then all of a sudden, BAM! I was stoked when I heard Line 6 and Bogner were getting together to make a fully tubed amp with Line 6 modeling technology. All I can say is, if you want a loud amp, this is it. The artists presets are not that great except for a few. But once you dial in your tone and crank up the volume, it handles itself very very well. So plug in, go to 11, and shred away! Cheers
To have Line 6 and their amp modeling and a 100w Bogner tube amp in the same head?! Forget about it! This amp rocks!! Right out of the box, in my living room....I had the volume at the 9 o'clock position and the floors were shaking!! I can't wait till band practice and unleash this monster in the confines of a practice studio!!
I have always been a Marshall guy. But my new JVM 410H was a little too noisy between songs. I like this new Line 6 amp. It has a cranked Marshall vibe but knows when to shut up. The HD100 tones are the best of the POD preamp built into a Bogner tube power amp. Great live amp, very quiet on stage, no buzz or hiss, It gets as harsh or warm as you dial in. It sounds like it is gated internally. I hear the high gain noise/hiss fade down after a quick stop of play. This makes coaxing feedback out after ringing a chord more difficult though. The clean tones were a little tricky to dial in but I am satisfied with a clean/slightly echo'ed settings. The vinyl covering is too soft and will tear easily. No metal corners are on the amp. It does just barely fit into a Marshall 100W Head road case though. The foot pedal lost its read out on a hot direct sun-lit stage in Seattle but worked fine three days later in Detroit. You will need the foot pedal.
I say, For all you metal heads out there, This amp will kick you in the butt and then some. You got a ton of tones to work with, And if your like me and use insane low tunings and you have a hard time with clarity in notes, You will love this amp. I Have 2 Mesa Dual Rec Heads and i love them to death, but you are limited on tones and my tunings can get lost on my Mesa heads. I would never replace my Mesa's for this head, but they are fun to play with and use live when i get bored. (Note: You will need to read the pilots manual to activate hidden functions)I use The FBV Shortboard and i am able to use all functions. This amp is well worth the money.
I really researched my latest purchase and I found this to be the best amp for the price listed. The true test was in my practice pad with my band. I barely had to turn this amp to a 3 setting and it was more then loud enough but the best part was that it had such clarity. The different artist setting were great to tinker around with and make my own. Using the FBV pedal board along with the Line 6 Bogner is ideal since switching is seemless and the volume/wah expression pedal is a really nice addition. I have the original Line 6 AX212 and have been happy with that for years but now it just collects dust. If you're on the fence about what to purchase, get off and grab this amp. Warm tube tone with onboard effects.....you can't go wrong. I'm not easy to please but I am totally satisfied with this amp. 5 stars and then some.
I purchased this head last Monday. I play it through my 1960A Cab. Everything has pretty much been written about this amp already on the message boards and the review sites. I can testify to the fact that this amp rips! It must be played loud however, or it sounds a little too digital (digital preamp after all), so if you plan on playing in small rooms or in an apartment, you might be better off with the 1x12 or the 2x12 combo. I play in a heavy metal band influenced by Black Sabbath and the Sword and I played my first show with it last Friday. Absolutely crushing tone. I run the preamp to drive a Marshall JCM 900 that sits on a 4x12 and it was one of the best sounding rigs at the show. One band had a 5150+ head and it sounded slightly thin in comparison to the Spider Valve. The effects are passable but really the amp models are the main event. Play one today.
I pretty much agree with all the other reviews...this amp is sweet! not a huge fan of the effects, needs more adjustment control, hate the reverb but tolerable. I did thought just run across a feature that is really cool... I live in an apt. so volume can be a problem at times, but with this amp you can still play it through your PC with headphones while it's on Standby...pretty cool for those late nights when you want to play or just for recording in general. I've had it for about 6 or 7 months now with no problems(knock on wood) over all very very happy with line6...Finally!
This head is awesome! Even with super heavy distortion, it's incredibly clear and precise. Mine is plugged into a Marshall 1960 and its SOOO loud! Believe it or not, it became even more clear and accurate after I swapped out the 4 6L6 Sovtek power tubes for Mesa/Boogie tubes. The tone changed a little bit but it's better in my opinion.
i have been playing guitar for a decade now. ive been a fan of line 6 for a number of years now starting with the spider I. the guitar player in my band later bought the spider II 150w combo, as i then upgraded to the spider III 150w combo. I can honestly state people who do not like the tones of line 6 amps are not truely dialing these amps in. I have gigged for a couple years now and found the spider III combo had more then enough power to play any size venue.. Yet we were looking for something more full and compressed sounding. so we decided to upgrade to the duel Bogner valve stacks. going from two 150w combo amps, to Bogner halfstacks was a verrry noticeable change.. if your looking for that full punishing low end tone. with the nice fulll harmonics.. this amp is for you. No comparison between the spider II or spiderIII and this amp. If you have any doubts are or up in the air about this amp.. I can tell you from experience it outperforms boutique amps at 3-4x the price. Line 6 is an upcoming name and amps and is setting the stage for digi modeling /tube amp design. Lifetime customer here
It's loud, cheap, and clear as heck. Hands down to Line 6. I had never been a fan of Line6, but this thing rocks. This is a tube amp that has all the effects a person could need. it's easy to use and has the heaviest distortion compared to and other tube amp on this website. this is the new amp for metal. No feedback problems just pure sound. It's a beautiful masterpiece. try it out now.
