So i owned the 212 version of the spider valve, and i loved it but it just wasnt loud enough. So im in the market for a new head, either the spider valve or the 6262. Has anyone played the spider valve head? if so what would you get? I play mainly metal and rock

If you want versatility, get the Line 6. If you want just good distortion and average cleans, get the Bugera.

Alf is right. You are wrong. End of.

Also consider a used Line 6 Vetta or HD147. They're a FAR better deal than the SV.
They're solid state but they're so high wattage the power amp clipping simply doesn't happen.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

I've heard nothing but good things about the Spider Valve HD100. I played on one at guitar center and it sounded amazing. I wouldn't choose any SS amp over the HD100. Read the reviews on it at musiciansfriend.

I second this. I picked up a HD147 for $350 with shortboard recently. Unfortunatly high end L6 gear doesn't really hold its resale value. That is unless you are trying to buy one used that is!

So true. I see Blackstars, Bugeras, and all sorts of stuff go mentioned here when Vettas and HD147s are, IMO, leagues better and available used for nearly the same price.

I was dead set on getting a Blackstar Ht-5, when I stumbled upon the HD147 on craigslist.

The HT-5 was awesome, but HD147 just outshines it completely with options. I had a Flextone previously, and I thought it was good, but for some reason the same models in the HD147 sound better. Brit Silver... I still can't get over this one.

the spider valve HD is plain great, a good good amp really tight, and far more versatile than bugera's one

i own both and in my opinion the bugera is far better. the spider valve sounds good but still has that "digital" sound to it. it's more a "buzzy" or "hissy" type distortion compared to bugera's big chunky growl.
#15
for reliability and versalility's sake, i'm going to say the Spider Valve. i'm sure there are going to be lots of misinformed "OMFLINE6SUXLOLOLOL" band wagoners out there who have never played a spider valve saying that it has a digital sound or something.

is there a reason that it's between these two, or are you open to suggestions? if so:
-Budget?
-Willing to go used?
-Nearest major city?

the spider valve does not sound like a tube amp at allll, do not buy it. If you think itll be better because it has tubes, i would recommend actually playing a real tube amp. Just get a 5150 or a 6505.

Not entirely. Real deal is the 6505, the 6505+ is a fizz factory in comparison

This.

I'm not saying this uninformed; I played a Spider Valve (the one with the bogner head design) for 3 hours, and I wouldn't put it in the range of an actual tube amp at all. No matter what tone you dial in, there's always a little digital edge on it all, which kills me. Maybe turning it up and letting the power tubes work there magic might make it lose that edge (so I'm told.)

Even then I'd rather have a real all-tube amp then a modeling amp with power tubes. I don't think you really are the best player you can be until you practice yourself on an all-tube. SS amps always hide the player I find.

Yes, it has a tube preamp and a tube poweramp, but the distortion is still created by the modelling processor.
