So in my metal band the other guitarist plays on a vyper half stack, and I just got a spider valve hd100 for free and plan on using it. How do you guys thing we will sound live together if we do our best to match rythem channels? Thanks

I think it's good that each guitar has a little of it's own character and they can blend together just fine. I am not the #1 L6 Spider fan but careful adjustment of the controls and patches can give decent results.

Basic guitarists rule to live by.: If the guitar sounds good, it is good. If it sounds like ass, fix it so it becomes less ass-like.

Don’t match them. Deliberately mismatch them and put them on opposite sides of the stage and you’ll sound huge.

I figured trying to match them would provide a more full sound

That's a no-no, imo. You want the guitars sounding a bit different on stage

Kinda match the tonality but not 100%. What I am saying don't go blasting high mids while the other guy tunes for more bass, kinda make them full but take a little care to have them sound slightly different. Listen to Slayer circa "South of Heaven" and you'd see what I mean, they even put each guitar in its channel - L or R, they sound similar yet different. Usually evne if you tune them the same your playing styles and guitars will provide enough difference to cover the basses.

you want the volumes to match, but I prefer to have a slightly different EQ setting than our other guitarist. having completely different amps helps alot because you want the 2 guitars to compliment each other. I gigged with a SV HD100 for several years and I had no issues with it, but it did take a while to dial in a tone I was completely happy with
