My local craigslist has a 150W Line 6 spider 4 for 200 dollars, and 150W is a lot more power than I need at the moment. My friend has a Line 6 Spider 15 and the cleans are okay bbut the distortion sounds just like a $20 Behringer pedal running through a cheap 5 watt amp. My question is, does the sound of the Line 6 Spider go up as you go up in the models, or does it still sound like god awful distortion, but just louder? Thanks!

No they don't.

If you can provide us with a budget, your location, the kind of music you play and the gear you have now, we could probably help you out in picking a nice amp if you ever need opinions in the future.

If you can find a spider valve, those actually have decent distortion.

The Peavy Vypyr is better in my opinion, but at the end of the day these are practice amps, and don't belong on stage or, god forbid, the recording studio

No, other than the very expensive Helix and their tube amps (DT, spide valve) Line6 products are garbage, their modelling is just plain bad, Spiders are budget practice amps that make a lot of different tones and all them are bad.

I think they might. When I bought my first amp it was between the Fender Mustang I and the Line 6 Spider 15. I went with the Mustang...

A friend recently bought a 30W Spider. It has a Celestion speaker and doesn't sound nearly as bad as I thought it would.

I had a Spyder III 150w 2x12 with Celestians, it's was tolerable a low volume but as soon as I would crank it up the tone went south, at higher volume the tone became very thin and to me sounded very artificial.

I would not waste my time or money if I were you, look into a Peavey Vyper, maybe a Roland Cube

When you put a bigger master amplifier on a cheese grater you're left with a louder cheese grater.


^^ Yep. Just step away from the Spider display. These are not the amps you are looking for...
