Hello,

I've posted here a little while back asking how to get a good gritty blues tone on the Line 6 spider IV 75 amp and I got answers saying it's petty much impossible. So this is the question today, what is the best blues effect pedal for this amp? Or does it matter what type of amp it is becasue of the effects pedal? Anyway, is this one any good?

Thanks.

I am the owner of a Line 6 spider myself and I really like the gritty blues tone I get out of the combination of my behringer blues overdrive pedal and my amp. I don't anything about the pedal you posted.

I havn't read your previuos post about your amp but I will just point out that the Line 6 spider hate wagon often attract quite a crowd.

I am quite sure your amp has a blues and crunch preset. If you fiddle with those and maybe throw in a little reverb, you might find a tone that will find suit your needs. The purist will properlly point out that an overdriven tube amp is the only way to go, but I think you can have fun with blues without buying a new amp.

Yes, my amp has both of those preset.. Guess I need to play around a little more. I guess getting a blues pedal couldn't make it any worse though

I opened thread expecting that by the 1st response I'd see "wrong forum", it took me this far? Thank you for hinting at it, and allow me to say...."wrong forum."

Obligatory reply to someone with a Line 6 Spider:

"Get a new amp."

Seriously, if you want a great blues tone, you'll never get it with that amp.

Running a pedal into a Spider is like running water into a cat.

Bad combination.

Buying Pedals for a Line 6 Spider, is like buying Rims for an early 90's mini van

There is two things you can always find on UG. People either bashing Gibson for being overpriced or people bashing Line 6 products.

true. and it's all a load of nonsense.

Whoever told you you can't get a gritty blues tone out of that amp wasn't looking past "line 6". as soon as you say "line 6", a load of idiots run over to shout "lol noob line 6 sux" on these forums.

It's just a matter of experimenting with the amp, playing around with the controls, learning what they do and how they affect the sound, and then adjusting them to your liking. I don't mean to sound condescending but if you have to ask how to get a particular type of tone out of a modelling amp, you probably need to learn how to use it. Because your definition of a gritty blues tone probably differs from everyone elses - it's all subjective.
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.
