I bought a Line 6 Valve 212 MKII (puts up flame shield) a little while ago, and I still have a few days to return it if I find something I like better. Honestly, it doesn't sound bad in my opinion. I play all kinds of metal and some modern/classic rock. I hear that the Peavey 6505+ 112 combo is a great amp for metal. I'd prefer a combo amp. I'm just looking for a great metal tone. If it matters, my guitar is a Schecter C-1+. All help is appreciated. Thanks!

Well if you're asking if the 6505 is better for metal than the Spider Valve, then yes, but the SV is by no means a terrible amp. It uses the same models as the Pod X3 afaik and is infinitely more versatile than a 6505

depending on your intended uses and how long you plan on using your amp, you might not need anything.

honestly, most beginners tend to 'prefer' the sounds of a Line 6 style modeler because it has most the sonic attributes that sound 'pleasing to the ear'. after some experience you may find lack of response and dynamics with digital modelers, but again beginners tend to like these attributes as it tends to make the playing sound more like what they hear on the radio.

if you plan on using this amp for practicing you skills and home use, with a little bit of casual jamming with friends, then i think this amp will suit you fine. it'll sound good enough to you, it'll have a variety of effects and models for you to become familiar with (and that knowledge will serve you when you upgrade later).

if you plan on getting an amp for playing in a band, or one you plan on growing with for a number of years and you plan on it seeing 'serious' musical use then i would recommend something a little more 'conventional' in those uses. something like your 6505 may suits your needs. something like a orange dual terror and a 1x12 or 2x12 could also get you by. but i recommend these types of amps mainly for the fact that they will grow more with you musically, they will sound more appropriate in a mix, they won't sound thin or bad in a mix, they mesh better with another guitarist.

I don't dislike the SV. I actually like it. I just hear bad things about it. I don't want this to be something my ear will outgrow quickly, though. I just need to be sure when I'm playing with this much cash.

! Yikes ! it's asian god empowerment.

alright evil, i wouldn't dump any kinda good chunk of money on Line 6...

(typing in google...)

wow, especially something like 800 or 900 bucks!

i am assuming that if you are willing to dump that kinda money on an amp, then you intend to become serious. i would recommend something a bit more 'conventional'. it seems like you want to play high gain metal? i am not really up on that type of thing, but there has got to be some advice on stock for a good metal amp in the search database. just search 'metal amp' and you'll get 1,045,759 hits. most metal amps will have a pretty good clean tone as well and can fake classic rock well enough for a metalhead.

i personally run a orange OR50H or my Sunn 1200S (with pedals) with either my orange ppc212 (couple webers in it) and a peavey 4x12 (G12K-85's) for heavier applications and this is plenty of 'metal for me.

i bet that jet city or egnator have something you may be looking for.

We can't control the economy.We can't choose whether or not we are NY Asian Escorts born with a big nose or blue eyes or a lot hair. We can't even choose how people respond to us. But we NY Asian Escort can choose where we spend eternity.

i would suggest that you remove those links from within the quote on your post, i don't think the mods like it when a spambot posts some ads and then people quote it because it just spreads the advertising further and makes them have to work a little harder to remove the ads.

There's nothing wrong with the line 6 spider valve - if you're happy with it, ignore what everyone else says - especially what people on UG say about it.

Generally the bad things you hear about the spider valve are not actually about the spider valve - it's because we have a lot of un-justified "line 6 hate" on UG, as well as hate for the spider series, which comes from the cheap solid state spider models. The only reason people bash the spider valve is because they think it's the same thing because they just don't know anything about gear in general lol.
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.
