ok so i got a line 6 sapider 3 amp for christmas, this amp produced no sound so i returned that to guitar center for another one of the same model.

now the new one is making a loud popping sound like a fire cracker which is followed by a sharp increase in volume for anywhere from 30 secs to 4-min.

now guitar center is now refusing to take it back...

im currently awaiting a response from Line 6 themselves to see if they will take it back but i was wondering if anyone else was having problems like this, specifically with this brand/model and if they found a way to fix it...

Might be a cable problem


nope, ive used multiple cables on both the amps, its a problem directly related to the amp.

What exact model is it? Wattage; tube?

line 6 spider III? wattage doesn't matter. and it's definitely not tube.


TS, it's not something you'll be able to fix, in all likelihood.

Don't judge me.

Why? He got given the amp.

TS - I'm pretty sure that GC have to take it back if it's still in warranty - check yours to see if it's any different but I'm pretty sure it won't be.

thats the thing, they only provide a 30 day warranty... they wont take it back now.

although i think ill be having a talk with their manager, im legally entitled to a refund or exchange since the product isnt fulfilling the purpose it was intended/sold for.

Spider amps have a whole community of various electric gremlins that plague them. If line6 wont fix it and GC wont warranty it then not much your gonna be able to do. I know it was a christmas present and should last longer than 2 months. Theres a reason most on here wont recommend them for any use other than making tables or keep your car from rolling down the driveway.

Go through Line 6. GC does not handle anyway warranty work in of themselves afaik, though they may be a drop off point after you talk with the company that made the product. They can help fix you up I would assume. I hope you kept the receipt though and registered it with the company. Otherwise you are SOL.
