I myself own a Line 6 Spider III amp and I find it a great amp which can mimic the sounds of many different genres and can even sound almost identical to a bass guitar. So why does everyone find this is amp a sh*tty amp? Tell me what's wrong with it?

Well, I can't speak for everyone on UG, but i don't like it because it just sounds too digital for my tastes. I suppose it's an alright practice amp, but above 30 watts I think I just starts sounding worse and worse.

Oh, and please use the searchbar. There are seriously tons of threads like this.

I'd agree with what most of the people in this thread have said, it sounds a little too "fake" to me. Maybe just because I like the tone I can get from tube amps, but there's also better amps in its price range as many will tell you. I'd save up and get something better.

It's alright as a practice amp, but I find its distortion channels to sound too muddy and not clear enough. Maybe with enough tweaking of the EQ and settings, you might get a decent distortion out of it.

As with most SS practice amps, their distortion lacks depth and clarity compared to a nice tube amp.

The real problem with the Spider is that they make a 75W version of it and also a half stack version of it and also a 150W version of it too I think. Those are just awful. You're getting an oversized practice amp with those. When you're paying more than like $300, you don't want an oversized practice amp.
my MG15DFX has a button that simulates the sound of one of the expensive tube marshall amps
