Hi everyone

I am looking for a new amp as the one i have the now seems a bit dated [its a hh electronic 100 watt] and i am intrested in two newer models.

I was looking at a Line 6 spider 3 or 4 and ive also heard good things about the peavey vypyr.I play mostly punk,metal and rock.I wont be needing it for gigging just for playing in my house.The mp3/cd playback is really important as i am looking to play along with the backtrack as i feel this is when i concentrate the most.I backed out of bidding for this at the last minute

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Line6-Spider-III-75w-Guitar-amp-with-foot-pedal-Wah-Volume-/261242543810?_trksid=p2047675.l2557&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEWAX%3AIT&nma=true&si=kSQc3p4H6CR%252F%252B98Z5cVWaS026y8%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc


and i think if i went ahead i would have won it but like i said im unsure.

I would really appreciate some advice.

Thank You

I would avoid the Spider. There are better amps for the money. The Roland Cube is great, the Vypyr tube series is a good choice, and the Fender Mustang actually isn't terrible.

Ive keep hearing alot of bad comments about the spider series mostly you can do better for the money and it isnt as good as its made out to be.The roland cube i have also heard good things about.Does it have the mp3/cd input?

The Mustang is definitely good for what you want. I own one. It can do the styles you want and has a headphone out and line in for playing along. It also has an USB cable to plug directly into your PC with free software for editing the presets.

Add Reaper and you have a good recording setup as well.

Vox Valvetronix series (VT) sounds better to me than the Spyder. Won't touch anything by Line 6 personally as quality is bad and the tone is nails on a chalkboard.
Eh, their high end stuff is actually pretty nice. If it didn't have the Line 6 nameplate...

Th amps are the problem for shitty tone (not vetta), bot necessarily all their products.

For the money the pod hd series is top notch as well as the m9 and dl4.

The name being attached to spider is sure not help for a reputation.

An interesting alternative could be to get a multifx and a powered speaker. As long as the multifx has amp models, you'd basically have a modeling amp with a comprehensive foot switch.

I do that the now with my Zoom 707 GFX.I usually plug headphone in and it has 6 or 8 different amp mods.Pretty decent too.
