Why does everyone say not to get the spideramp thing from line6 just out of curiousity.

It hasn't got a soul.

If you get the smaller versions there are better amps available for the price. If you get the larger versions you're just plain retarded. (There are much much much better amps available)

The tone of a spider is kind of like a dying baby...in a blender. But seriously though, they just sound really muddy, sterile, unresponsive, ect.

Because they are really digital, really muddy. And the larger models are a ripoff for what you get. By a nice tube combo and compare to the spider and you will see why everyone does not like it.

Still can get alot better amps for the money.

the only decent thing line 6 makes is the Vetta II. The Spider is muddy and digital basically disgusting. And for the price of a new one you could get a peavey 5150 combo and be set

One thing i must say, thats not true, if you hold the button for about 5 seconds it saves your current settings to that channel until you hold it again.

Still there are lots of folks who prefer to have modelling versatility instead of oh-so-real-sounding tube amps. Get over it.

I prefer a nice tube am too, anyway, but people are different.

Sorry i was just saying, moddeling is really fun, i meen you dont have to lots of effects pedals to get that tone you want, but in the long run a tube amp is better for the money.

I pray that you are not talking about an MG.
But... i've owned a spider before.
Only reason I bought was because it was like 100 bucks at a local store (30 watt), then when I wanted to upgrade it, I sold it to a friend for 115.
Spiders, although I don't think they're necessarily as bad as everyone thinks, they're not good amps. The clean is the only not-bad channel. The crunch is pointless (no sustain at all), the metal is ok only for rythym, and the insane is just stupid.

Yeah, sure. But for instance, I know a guy who could play any amp he wants, he is a professional musician, and he chooses to play the Vetta, because he doesn't have to bother with anything else. He plays a lot live, so he just has his amp and his guitar, finito. And he has good tone.

Edit:I wasnt lieing. I used to have a spider when i started out and it fun, because i could get any tone i wanted without the use of shelling out hundreds of pounds.

His tone may be good, but not as good as if he had an all tube head and all the original pedals. If you're a tone freak like me, spending more money (even for a slight tone difference) is worth it.

True, but live no-one will hear a difference between a vetta II and a tube head, except maybe for yourself.

for home use though, buying top-quality gear is very worth it.

I dont know, i heard spiders sound really band cranked.

I'm not saying that a modeling head can compare to an all tube amp, even top stuff like the Vetta can't, but I mean, in a crowded pub you can count the people that actually would know the difference by the fingers of one hand.
I would choose a tube over SS in any situation though, that's why I'm saving for the Orange Tiny Terror and not for, say, a Line6 Flextone, which is a good amp too. I'm just saying there are some that get a modeling thingy just to be set with every sound you possibly know, even sacrificing a bit of tone.

Yeah that's totally understandable.
