I jammed with a guy today who was using a Line 6 Spider IV 75 watts. I struggled not to lol because of all the bashing that those amps get on here. Then I realized that I didn't actually know the reason for all the hate. Can someone explain?

because they sound like crap... in a box... with knobs to adjust how much crap it puts out /thread


lol

The smaller ones are passable practice amps, and you can find a decent tones in them, if you know what you're doing. However, as I said, they're a practice amp, nothing more, and getting the larger models is just, I feel, pointless.

And there's much better practice amps for better money too. So no point getting the smaller ones, either.
#5
because they are only good as practice amps nothing more
and for the money of the bigger ones you could get a better amp
...i also just dont like how they sound especialy at low gain

There are quite a few amps out there that sound good for the first few hours, even a few days but after that all you want to do is throw them off a bridge. The Spider is very much like that. On first listening they seem quite good. Then your ear adjusts and you want to kick it.
The old Peavey Bandit was like that. I played with a guy that had one. For the first few sessions I quite liked it. After a few weeks I couldn't stand the sound of the muddy, monotonous piece of crap.

Pretty much, this. Any single-speaker combo would make for a nice bedroom amp.

The Spiders are good practice amps, especially for someone who is just starting at guitar. It gives them a wide spectrum to work with, and all the basic effects. The most recent Spiders are pretty sweet as far as letting you tweak more effect parameters.
