Basically I've been messing around with the sound and I'm about to go back and listen to UG users and purchase the peavey vypyr.

I got the line 6 spider 3 15w. I heard you could get the tone settings online on Line 6's website but I cant find it. Any help would be VERY appreciated.

Sounds like the amp needs ALOT more treble and distortion if anyone can help with that too.

If you want the tone settings its on the forum.

Line 6 spider 3's are pretty wicked, i like mine its good for recording and it has some slightly usable effects. The only problem with the effects is that their kind of cheesy sounding and a little to overpowering most of the time. Overall i like them.

Return it. Before it traps you like all our crappy beginner amps did until we unshackled them with decent amps. Run my friend, return it tomorrow morning in the last day of the Bush-era.

Ugh, I don't even own a spider and I don't even need to hear how bad the tone is.

Metal: Red

Drive: 10

Bass: 10

Mid: 0

Treble: 10

Reverb: 4

No FX


Here's one I created that's a nice thick hot Marshall sound.

Amp model: Crunch 'red'

Gain: 9

Bass: 9

Mid: 8

Treble: 7

Channel volume: 9

Master Volume: your choice

Reverb: 3

No other efx activated.



Yeah LesPaulman, thats another great Marshall sound,thanks. I played a few Jimi Hendrix songs such as "Fire", "Purple Haze", and "Red House" with that setting...a great sound for Jimi's style. (btw with that setting I used a Fender american deluxe strat with SCN [Samarium Cobalt Noiseless] pickups, the S-1 switching button pushed in [basically transforms the single coil pickups into humbuckers, because the pickups are wired both ways], and both the neck and bridge pickup tone control knobs set at 10)
Line 6 does a good job with the Spider's modeling of Marshall amps, as compared to a few other amp brands models.


Ugh, no.

Dont listen to everyone who is going to knock it, its a great amp for what it is and it beats a marshall mg hands down. Google it or mine came with some sheets of paper with some on.

If you're using it for metal you honestly don't need to go past 6 drive on the red metal channel.

This. No matter how good you think it sounds, if you consider the other, much better options that are out there in the same price range, buying the Spider just doesn't make sense.

These other options being:
- Peavey Vypyr
- Roland Cube
- Vox Valvetronix

I heard Peavey Vypyrs have MAJOR glitches, and keep breaking, loads, so even though they're versatile you might not be best suited to buying them.

I'd go for the Vox Valvetronix VT or XL series, or the Roland Cube. Vox seems really classy just cos they include tubes and the new VT series seems versatile, if you're willing to invest a bit more money.

I don't think anyone can go wrong with Cube 30/60 though, only reason I didn't get one was that I saw an amazing deal on a Vox and I've taken that up. People seem to hail the Cubes as the second coming of Jesus, in amplifier form.

I find the Vypyr's overloaded and somewhat confusing, so I'd get the Cube, but it's your call, go try both I suppose.

i returned a spider III 75 watt FOR a marshall MG... it was a huge upgrade in sound

i should also say the marshall MG's are terrible, and i have since replace it with an Orange Tiny Terror \m/


EDIT: get the cube... i heard one last week, and it actually sounds decent for what it is.. probably the best practice amp i've heard

Nah MG's sound like crap no point having one and the cube sounded complete crap to me, apparently the vyper is good just there is a learning curve with it i have heard.

The original presets on the 15 suck, tweek them to your liking and it will sound better

Here is the link for settings for every song on the box

Took me forever to find when I bought this amp. I must say my 75 watt one is significantly better.

I'd get the Vypyr. The first time I tried it I didn't like it, but the next time I tried it it wasn't too bad. Definitely usable, and much better than the spider

Roland Cube 15 doesn't have all of the amp models the Micro or Cube 30x have. It's pretty limited for a Roland. If you are just playing in the bedroom and practicing, a microcube would be much better. Proven and reliable and a lot of good effects. The Vypyr 15 is a nice little practice amp. But the reliability is untested as they are a newer line of amps. Most of the problems I have heard about with them is with the 75 watt version but the 15 has some of the same parts so... So compared to the Roland Cube 15, it's way more versatile, just new...

ok well I just picked up the Peavey Vypyr....

AWESOME AMP.

I love it, at first it had too much distortion and everything sounded fuzzy but now its fine. I just wanted to say thanks to ZeGuitarist who first told me about the vypyr.
