I never understood the hate for Spiders tbh. But then again, I've never played one.

I'm digging the playing of the second video though.

I read.

I wept.

And then I said "Ha ha screw you I bought a Jet City JCA50H for $300."

The hate for Spider comes from everyone having to suffer listening to the playing of noob guitarists who think that turning the gain all the way to maximum is a good idea.

I was one of them.

To be honest, they're not too bad when you use the gain in moderation. Of course they don't compare to higher end amps, and you could probably even do better in the same price range, but hey, they're not completely shit. I mean, the smaller ones are.

It's basically a UG-specific meme, really.
I'm rgrockr and I do not approve of this message.

Spiders can dial in really good tones if you know what a "Good" tone sounds like. Just the kids who play them are horrible, and think the Slipknot preset is god mode.

Most modeling amps are pretty dildos. The thing is, most people who get them and claim that they're great are new guitarists who haven't heard anything better. I know because I was one of them. I absolutely despise my Vypyr now, after almost ~four years of having it.

They tend to push them on new guitar players who don't know what they're looking for, so a lot of us begrudgingly grew up on them.

EDIT: I think the Valveking is pretty good for its price though?
I guess I'm just out of touch.

^They are

It has a lot to do with how the videos are setup. The peavey demo for example was way behind the production quality of the spider demo.

Still I liked the blues junior best.

all of those aren't bad except the spider.

i had a vt30 and was versatile for the price. luckily it broke and gave my an excuse to jump on a peavy ultra 112 for real cheap.

The HT5R is a great amp. I've never played a Spider, but I'm well aware of the disdain for modelling amps in general. Never understood it myself. Of course you're not going to get the creamy tones you would get from warm tubes, but I love my Roland Cube and would recommend it to anyone looking for an affordable practice amp.
