a good guitarist playing like that can cover up a bad tone. the tone itself is pretty nasty, tbh, although the reverb is quite nice.

i know its hard to believe but i have a spider 3 and i get amazing tones out of it. a bit noisy with my crappy pick ups tho
#7
its almost as if tone doesnt come from the fingers

i reckon 70% of the bad reputation that spiders get is because 90% of the time theyre being played by terrible (beginner) players
Get off this damn forum and play your damn guitar.

spiders arent all that bad, i have a spider valve half stack, its a tube amp. the factory settings really aren't that good, but if you mess with it a little you can get a really good tone.
#10
Tone isn't bad, I'm sure it helps that he doesn't have a ton of gain and his playing is clean. It still sounds a little digital but it was better than I was expecting.

I think it helped that it was all single notes and legato, there were no chords and no sustained notes.

you can get good tones out of nearly anything, you just have to know what you're doing. the tone reflects the player, good player=good tone... bad player=bad tone. i can get some sick tones out of that thing, and when its put into the mix you really can't tell that much of a difference between that and the other amps in that price range.

not really, even my brother who has been playing for about 5 years, while he can get a decent sound out of it, it still sounds pretty bad.

When I had mine the reverb did wonders.. it worked really well for the gain channel.

The only good tone I ever got out of my Spider III was a mid-scooped low-fi fuzz. It was awesome in an awful way.. I actually almost kept it just to A/B it instead of buying a fuzz pedal but it wasn't loud enough.

Spiders are actually ok amps, the problem is for every spider there is something better for the $$, so no real reason to get one.

You can get decent tones out of them at bedroom levels, which is what they are made for. Its when people try to blast them that the horrible tone comes through mostly. I don't think the spider should be made in a version larger than 15 watts. It is what it is, a beginners pracice amp, no need for that to be 75 watts.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned the fact that it was recorded and mixed with another song. Thats when you build off of another tone. Even a spider recorded in stereo and mixed together will sound great. Every wondered how all those demos of any product sound great.

Another possibility could be extra compression from a camera mic. Makes Diezels sound thin and bouncy, and spiders sound tight and punchy on youtube.

not entirely.

Sometimes bad tone can make a player of any skill level not play to their full potential - specifically people who are very very picky about their tone, who just lose all the motivation and passion for it if they aren't satisfied by the tone and responsiveness of the amp. I get that sometimes.

Sounded fizzy, and im not being an elitist asshole about this, i just didnt like it.

Tone IS NOT in the fingers,, your playing style, use of dynamics and general skill come from your fingers, wether you sound like **** or not comes from your gear, or wed all be playing through MGs.

Agreed, i take home my friends spider II from our practise space instead of my 100w randall simply because of the weight. Its excellent just to practise on, but as soon as you crank it and get drums involved it really struggles to keep up.
