the amp i have atm is a gibson studio 10s, without the pedal on the amp the gain on full sounds clean? ive been youtubing line 6 15s and im suprised how heavy they can be, although people on youtube dont tell you if they are using a pedal. i mostly play metallica, kse, bullet for my valentine and my own stuff which i like to sound like a cross between kse and bullet. anyone have any reccomendations of another metal amp or tell me about line 6 distortion?

Line 6 Spider's don't come highly recommended...

There's far better for the price, though if i were you , I'd simply save a little more. What is your budget for the moment?

I guarantee that the Line 6 will sound better than whatever distortion pedal you're using now.

buy a line 6 fx pedal

edit: wait youre in dire need of a new amp. id save up for either a Roland Cube 15, or a VOX ad15vt

You're not gigging i assume?

If so, I'd look into either

or

http://www.guitarampkeyboard.com/en/77819

I realise they both require you to save a little (the second one moreso) but people round here generally recommend them for the sort of music you're trying to play

this must be the hundredth time ive had to say it...

do not get a line 6 spider III

for a similar priced amp thats better, you could get a roland microcube, peavey vyper, or a vox advt15

a line 6 could replace your pedal, but with the 15w amps the distortion sounds more like fuzz. I can't play on the insane channel without laughing at how terrible it sounds. It sounds like my amp is about to split in two like its tearing itself apart when I play on the insane distortion channel.

The 75w and above have better distortion(not sure on the 30w), but if you had enough money to get that youd still be better off getting a higher watt version of the amps i listed above.

I was gonna say that too, but I guess PODs also means the pocket pod, which isn't that great if you ask me.

Well I have a Line 6 spider III 30w... I don't see how everyone is bashing Line 6s I think it's amazing and probably the best amp I've played on. The different channels are awesome and you can also put it on insane and turn down the drive if it's a lil too beefy for ya. :p

But yeah the only bad part was I bought a distortion pedal before for my Peavy amp (which sucks...) and then I got my spider III so I lost money on the pedal!!!

Anyways thats my input and good luck.

id understand that, but if that were the case, he probably likes the modeling and would like the flextone or the spider valve better.

Thanks all, I brought this amp to my parents attention and they approved of it bit they were like 30w!? Wtf? So I took a look at the 15w version, but my only concern is that is there any difference between these two amps apart from the wattage?

The 15w version has an 8" speaker. The 30w has a 12". I suggest trying both to find which one you actually like more. Keep in mind, however, double the wattage is NOT double the volume.

*EDIT*

Any guitar can do metal. The amp gives metal, you can't plug a BC Rich Draco into an acoustic amp and suddenly be ripping pinch harmonics like Zakk Wylde.
