I turned it on and it didn't do anything.

So I shut 'er down again and I turned it back on and it worked for a second and there was a hiss coming from my headphones (I have them plugged in so I don't wake people who are sleeping) and then it shut off and now it won't turn back on.

Should I get this repaired or just invest in a new one? It's a Line 6 Spider II 112.

Line 6 Spider II? Get a new amp. ASAP.
Amon Amarth to Frank Zappa
and everything in between.


The A-Z's of music.

I wouldn't really suggest putting any money towards fixing a Spider to be honest. Save up for a new amp.

The only thing I liked about it was the built in tuner.

You can get a good clip on tuner for dirt cheap rather than keeping the Spider, which on the whole, don't really have a good sound anyway (in my opinion). I have a Snark Tuner (cost me about £12) which just clips on, and tunes your strings by measuring the vibration - it's a really great tuner.

Most of the time when a SS amp just won't power on, it's gone. Or, at least it would cost more to fix it than it would be worth. It IS nice having a tuner built in, but tuners are ridiculously cheap.

soooo..... put any thought into a replacement amp?

You finally made it home, draped in the flag that you fell for.
And so it goes

I've thought about getting either a Roland Cube 40XL, but it seems like another modelling amp but I'm not sure or a Blackstar HT-60

When the best aspect of an amp is its onboard tuner, that's when you know you need a new amp.

Oh I know

I got it when I was 16 five years ago, and I thought it was a pretty great amp for a few years.

But then after awhile I realized it was a pretty shitty sounding amp. The distortion channel was so weak, the only way it sounded good was if I gave it a boost with my DS1.
