Apparently there is a high dislike for these amps...?? lol, I'm not sure, but I got it for Christmas last year and it works just fine for me. (fine = key word)

Anyway, the amp apparently has the ability to hook up to your iPod...so you can play along with the music. That's what it said on the box? I was wondering if that is true, and if so, what wire do I have to get to connect the two together?

Any help is appreciated.

Yeah it does. just like get the cable with two headphone jacks and find the line in/mp3 plug on the amp.

and if nothing else when you get a new amp use that one as a stereo

Yea, I've been meaning to save up for a better amp, but my first priority is to get a new guitar! Haha. Or at least the basics (guitar stand...reliable tuner)

WTF is wrong with you?

1. He doesn't want another amp.
2. If he gets a new amp I hope to god its not that one.
3. Just because you own it doesn't make it good.

TS - Ya you just need a 1/8 inch to 1/8 inch cord. Try radio shack.

Lol. Thanks for your help. And yes...I don't want a new amp anytime soon and if I did, I'd probably research more about it.

Wow, I'm not sure but they're might be an intelligent thought in that pile of shit. Its not a mystery why they are hated. Here at UG we judge amps on sound quality, not features. So while I agree the Spider series have some great features, that does not make them great. I'm glad you guys like yours now, but there will come a day when you see the light and realize its shortcomings. To be honest this is a sad day, because it means you will have begun a never-ending quest for a sound that you likely cannot achieve, or afford to achieve.

No problem, glad I could help. Just a thought; if you have a TI-80 series graphing calculator (TI-83, TI-84, TI-85, TI-89, or whatever the hell else they've come out with since I was in school) the cord you are looking for is the one you link two calculators together with, just in case you have one laying around. As I said before, if not radio shack will have them for next to nothing.

About the amp, if it is still keeping you interested in playing then its doing its job. Just don't' let it cause you to lose interest, if you start to dislike the sound its time to start shopping.

dude. please don't go with line 6. it's pretty good at first, but in the long run, you're going to try other amps, and find out it sounds like shit with external pedals.

go with something that isn't amp modeling. you'll thank me.

The spiders are fine for practice amps. If you don't gig they offer a lot of (so-so) tones for the money. I have a Fender Super-sonic and a 6505 but still use my spider for practice.
#15
yeah, that's the key here is to keep in mind they're practice amps. they don't need to sound great.

that said, there are two major failings by guitarists when it comes to spiders and similar practice amps: (1) that they're good for anything but practice, that is, a 100w spider head puhing a full stack is a VERY BAD IDEA (not to mention a waste of money), and (2) upgrading a spider with newer version of a spider is actually an upgrade... it's not... just another waste of money.

Actually you just need the second and third one. You don't need a 1/8" to 1/4" converter jack.
