I am looking for a new amp. Right now I have a Peavy JSX 212 combo, which is friggen huge and I bring it to gigs. Other then that I have a small 15-watt crap box right now I am thinking of something along the lines of a Line 6 Spider III, maybe the 75w model. I don't want anything too big, but at the same time need it bigger then the small stuff and loud enough for my room and such, as I will be bringing it around places alot. I play mostly thrash metal like trivium and such, and want something that can give me a good sound.

I know the Line 6 has all the presets and such, but are there any other amps along that size that wouldn't disappoint me? I know the new Spider III's have the footswitches with the built in wah and volume control, so that is pretty much a bonus. Budget is not a problem, I just need to find the right amp.

What's you opinion on a practice amp for attaining a good metal sound? I know the Line 6 isn't the greatest according to some, but it looks pretty sweet and I've played the older Spider III.

Uh if going for a spider 3 then go for the valve at least.



No No no!!!!!!!

The Spider Valve is one of the worst amps I've ever played!!!!

I was at Tom Lee's, trying out a Razorback V, when all of a sudden I plugged in to a Spider Valve....and....ALL I HEARD WAS CRAP.

It actually sounded like something was dying , I mean an MG sounded better!
The effects were useless, the distortion sounded like crap, and I couldn't EQ it to save my life!!
