ok there is a line 6 spider valve 112 combo in my local shop for a smashing £319! what are your thoughts on it? is it the best for its price?

i play a lot of rock metal so i like good distortion yet tons of genres so pretty much anything as im in a band. and that means i would use it for gigs.

my budget could stretch to 350 if nessercary

thanks

Try it. You can probably get better for your money, maybe Vypyr tube?
Wait.

Better than the regular one's by a long shot, but if you can, a Peavey Vypyr Tube is better. Still, not a bad amp, though.

If you feel like you'll be using enough different amp sounds to justify the purchase then by all means go for it. It isn't a horrible amp, you can coax usable tones out of it. Personally I would just get an amp with a nice clean channel and run a whole bunch of pedals if I need versatility.

Get a Laney VC30 112. If the dirty channel doesn't do it for you, then you can run pedals through the clean for more versitality

I played the spider valve and i was actually well impressed. It had a really nice distorted tone on its own, don't know how well itll cut through with a band but its not a bad amp on its own.

Trust me. I bought a Spider III for the effects. Didn't use them at all. Switched amp. I don't miss them.
Go for something else.

Yes. Its a pretty good amp and for the cash you wont find versatility to match.

Put it like this, if it was called the "Flexvalve", more people would reccomend it.

I really dig spider valves. And i still love my Spider III even though its only use is being a practice amp halfstack

I've never used the tube Spider, but I just played a Vypyr Tube 120 yesterday. It pretty much sounded just like my friend's 15 watt SS Vypyr, only about ten times as loud.

The SV is not a bad amp, at all. Coupled with one of the FBV footswitches, it's actually a pretty good setup.
That being said, it sounds better for metal and rock, and the cleans are still meh (to my ears).

Try both the SV and the Vypyr Tube out... I haven't had a chance to play the tube Vypyr yet, but I've heard some amazing things. I'll have to try one out because I was pretty disappointed in the SS ones.

I'm pretty sure it sounded better when I tried one. More natural sounding to me.
