I am planning on buying an amp and saw this cheap line six spider http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/Line-6-Spider-IV-30-30W-1x12-Guitar-Combo-Amp?sku=620209

considering the price It is very affordable. I have heard people hating the line sixs, but I don`t get why. Is this a good amp? does it fit what I will play.(mostly blues and metal).

um?

EDIT: People dislike it because it's quite digital and fairly expensive for what it is. You'd be much better off with a Vypyr if you want a modeller. Got a budget in mind?


This is on the verge of a *reported* thread, and since you were trolling before i'm inclined to think this is trolling too but i'll give you the benefit of the doubt, the mods may not feel the same way though. "Why does everyone hate ___" threads are not allowed

Vypers kill those.
Why line 6 spider VI suck
1. they sound generic
2. they overheat like the III
3. Theres no drastic change from the III
4. As a previous owner of the III, they pick up christian radio
5. Customer support SUCKS! i had to threaten to sue to get a refund
6. They sound more digital than a $5 distortion pedal.
need i go further?

Now that's just sad. I'd suggest moving to somewhere that's managed to crawl out of the dark ages.

This is what you want. It's always suggested over the Line 6. My friend has one and it gets pretty good tones for the price. Plus it's the only amp I've ever seen bring the entire employment of a music store to to the back of the store to look at the "pretty spinning lights."

That amp is a definite improvement over the Line 6 Spider IV.



Is it good for metal? does it have good gain?

Yea for a $200 modeller it's just about the best you're gonna get. It's alright but it's definitely no 6505
