Because i have and they have a good metal setting.

Sorry if this is a silly thread,i just drank coffee and it seems to take a while for the coffee to kick in.

yes, yes i have.

they sounded alright, a whole lot better than the regular spider at gigging volumes, but still sounded a bit like a digital imitation of a tube amp despite actually having tubes.

and the difference between volumes on certain settings and amp models was annoying as hell.
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.

Lol, how credible you must be then.

Anyways, I disagree. I think the Spider Valve amps are absolutely phenomenal and not "okay" at best as someone else put it. You just so happen to pick up one with an extended floor board, your pretty much good to go.

In my band, one of my guitar players has a Peavey 6505 head and cab, while my rhythm has a Line 6 Spider valve head and cab - The tone we get out of the Line 6 is this much crispier, hot, tone that cuts through the mix really well. The 6505 i will admit has more chug but really just sounds damp compared to the Valve.

I say you should play one and decided for yourself though.

They're definitely NOT worth what they charge for them. Way too digital sounding for a supposed hybrid amp.

I love mine.... I spent a couple of hours testing amps before I bought it at the store and can say without doubt it blows any combo in the $600-$800 price range out of the water.

You had $800 to spend and the best thing you could find was a Spider Valve?
They aren't as bad as a SS Spider but seriously, that was the best thing you could find? Ever heard of Ebay and Craigslist?

I got it for $600 new. I can't fit a half-stack so I had to get a combo. :P And I'm never using ebay for big purchases, I've been screwed over one too many times on that site.

With that money you could get something awesome and very nice sounding.

TBH, I really like them. For the new price, they are decent, but for the used, they're pretty hard to beat at some of the prices I've seen them go for. I haven't tried the MKII yet, but I remember going to Guitar Center one day and I tried all the amps they had in there, including a 6505+, Krank Rev, VHT 50/CL and a Mesa Triple Recto, and the SVhad a much clearer tone. Sure, it was pretty digital sounding and a little more thin, but it did the chainsaw grind really well, and the clarity was pretty insane after I played with it for a while.

I've had tube amps for a while now, but never actually had any go down on me

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

If it's that big of a purchase you do the actual exchange face to face. If you get screwed over then it's your own fault.

I have the 2x12 combo. It's a pretty good amp, though I don't think it's worth the asking price.
