when the notes are long, that's called sustain.

there are sustain pedals, but they make a lot of noise. it's better to have a loud amp.


sustain pedals make notes longer?

yes. they're called compressors. but they are very noisy if you use them with distortion.


compressors?

Well you need to dis engage the built in noise gate.

I would also not use the insane setting. I had a spider when they first were made and I never used the insane, it was too muddy. I liked the Recto channel (metal on the newer ones) but don't max the gain or the channel volume, it will get fizzy as hell.

Start with all the eq knobs at noon and adjust them each up or down to your preference. When you like what you hear, add a little more mids and you should beable to hear a bit of a difference.

But do realize you have a entry level amp with a crap speaker. It will never sound great at all, but you should get a sound that is useable for practicing at home.

The first chance you get, I really suggest you look at a used Peavey Vypyr 30. These are similar to the spider, but they sound much better and it has a 12" speaker which will make a huge difference in perceived sound.

You can get some decent sounds out of your spider, but it will take some time sitting there and playing the same riff and slowly turning the knobs to find what you like sound wise. Let your ears tell you when the settings are good, not your eyes.

The Vypyr 30 is the best entry level amp for metal you can get IMO. Where are you located? You can get the Vypyr 30 for $100 used in the usa.

Did you buy your spider new? Do you have the option of returning it and getting something else.

I've had lots of Line 6 amps and gear, I'm not a huge fan of the newer spider series. They used to be the only modeling amps that were affordable, but now there is many more choices.

personally, i think the spider series has horrid sustain.

the higher quality gear you get, the more this will be fixed. the pros have the best stuff, and with so, they get gear that enables the best tones and great sustain. of course they play well, but playing through a top of the line amp at a loud volume level will always be better than most of us normal people will ever get.

you sound like you're doing it right.

Tone is in the fingers.

What you really need is a new amp.

I have been hearing about MG amps lately. I have heard good about them, but only a few times have they been talked about here.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.
