I have just bought one as my first amp. I was wondering if anyone else used themand if they could reccomend some good settings to use. I am over on Line 6's forums but seem to be getting nowhere.
Uh oh... everyone's gonna flame you for buying a spider.
Anyways... when I owned my spider II, I liked to keep the EQ settings pretty balanced and turned to the right (higher setting). If you leave some of the knobs turned down, it gives it a real thin sound, which I don't like. If you're trying to get a good tone out of the crunch channel... forget it. Just dial down the gain of your metal channel instead. Also... make sure you crank your mid and bass EQ's especially.
