Hello,

The title pretty much sums it up but is anyone familiar with this amplifier? And how to get a grity blues tone out of it? The blues amp model setting doesn't really dig it for me!

Thanks.

Without trying to be a dick head, to get a good blues tone, you will need a new amp. Pretty much any other amp will work better than your current one.
Marshall amplifiers are the truest purveyors of rock and roll known to man.

Holy crap, check this out!

I hear wonderful things about the Marshall MG Series!!!

Disregard that comment TS. This man is right. I assume you bought the amp recently since its the IV and those have only been out about a year? Correct me if I am wrong. But honestly, a new amp is the only way. Otherwise, crank up the Texas Flood setting and work from there. That what I did when I owned the III.

Yes it is. If you want a good blues amp, go and buy a fender tube amp.

^ I love it when nick gets mad

It's not an ideal amp for a blues tone. And definitely not the top of the line 6 modelling line (Vetta, flextone anyone...). I haven't used a spider since the II, so can't comment on settings.

If blues is really what you want to play, you can pick up a used. fender blues junior or peavey classic thirty for under 300.

if you really want a good gritty blues tone i recommend:

insane setting
bass-10
middle-10
treble-10
gain-10
volume-10
Guitars:
94' Epiphone Les Paul Honeyburst
Ibanez RG7620
Ibanez RG560

Amp:
Peavey Valveking Head
Marshall 1960b

You guys are complete idiots, well most of you.
Owning one of these Spider IV's, i just want everyone to know that the hate for the spider III's does not transfer to the 4, because this is actually a good amp.

I actually tried this next to a cube, a VT, and a vypyr, and this just sounds better.

But not for the type of tone TS is after.
TS, i'd look into selling it and looking into a Peavy windsor combo.
