high end line 6 amps like the vettas and flextones are good, the spiders are decent practice amps, but id never gig with one, id look into a roland cube really.
make Industrial and/or experimental electronic music? Join my group!

What genre of music? I tried the line 6 they sucked for what I was going for a hard rock ( zeppelin , aerosmith , gnr ) sound I got a really crappy hi gain thing alot like korn. If you want more convience and better jamming options the Vox's are amazing i mean GOOOD for a non valve amp. DO not get ANY AVT or MG's those are the worstttttt trust me.... I ended up getting a new crate , they are not as bad as I thought. Decent tone , 3 channels , nice effects not over done...

Line 6 Spider III is a BIG improvement over the Spider II.

I'd say get one of those over the II.

Is there any black people on UG?
I don't think a lot of black people play guitar anymore.

Meh Cube's dont compare to Valvatronics , great tones.... He has LP in his avatar so Im thinking the vox prolly isnt his type of thing.

my type of music are metal, slow rock and classic



NVM the vox can NAIL classic and slow rock , metal it can do decent. Line 6 is prolly better for metal.

IMO all their gear sounds like ass.
I'm not very active here on UG currently.
I'm a retired Supermod off to the greener pastures of the real world.

IMO you don't know very much about the target public of their gear.

I personally do not like the spider series... I play mostly metal (like Metallica) and some neo-classical metal (like Symphony X), and it doesn't suit my tastes...

The Cube... that's another story =)

theres nothing wrong with the spider II. Very good for a beginner amp. And it makes a better metal sound than the Vox.
#16
id say get the roland cube. better tone and more compact

and not all line 6 amps are crap. as stated above flextones are good, and the Vetta is number 2 on my list of amps i dream of having.
