Don't get a line 6 spider. Get a small tube amp and a distortion pedal, it will keep you around £100 and you'll get great tone.
New Setup:
Epiphone Les Paul Custom (Black SG w/ 3 Hum.)
Peavey Classic 50
EHX Metal Muff
Cry Baby 535Q

anything up to 20w for practising, I have a behringer AC108 Vintager tube amp (15w) and it's ok.

whats so wrong with the spider? *confused* is it cause its a modelling amp? I would have got a massive 50W marshall if i could but it'd devour my bedroom. So yeh the line 6 is good for a bedroom. why do you need a 30W tube amp in youre bedroom anyway? the sounds gonna surround you and damage ur hearing. + i only have to put my line 6 up to 1/2 of 1 to annoy my dad.

Even a 15W at full volume in your room can damage your hearing

Line 6 spiders suck, imo, because they are poor quality, poor effects, break easily etc. Do not buy one. Buy a Kustom Tube 12 , I have one and I love it. It is also more than loud enough for practicing.

someones got a spider and is desprite to defend all of them...the only advide id give is stay away from the mg...tho youve had that experence already...and the spider there both about the same...maybe try a smaller vox or that vox pod thing that plugs into your headphones, havent used one but ive heard that those things are great if you dnt wanna disturb others and if your parents are like mine they bitch anytime i pich up the guitar...might go get myself one of them lol

over the year and a half that iv been living with the spider 3 75 is that the distortion isnt amazing but the clean tones are amazing. and it gets a descent rock tone as well. dont hate, masturbate.

dude ur nockin spider and u play a harmony!now thats funny!!




Man, you are knee-slappingly hilarious.

The Spiders are one of the worst amps for the price. Get a Peavey Vypyr 15w. MUCH better.

If its just for practice, get a line6 POD and some headphones... Don't confuse them with spiders as they are MUCH different...
