I'm going to get either a Gibson Melody Maker or a Gibson SG Classic. The amp I want is the 120w Spider 3. That's really all that I need right now. I'm moving from a Squier strat and a Fender Frontman 25r 75w amp.

go to guitar gear and accesories and get them to recommend an alternative for the spider 3.

You'll thank me for it later.

Awesome sig btw.

Buy them, piss on them, sell them again, and get a squire starter pack, with a marshall MG10 and an amazing quality Fender Squire Strat.

Ah, you allready have a squire? then get a yamaha pacific.

^^don't listen to these guys. Spiders are great for their price, bashing modeling amps is just some sort of ug meme.


The Roland Cube is a modelling amp, but sounds awesome for it's price and size.

The Spider series, on the other hand, ARE HORRIBLE.

false.

I'd happily advise a Roland cube, or another amp accompanied by a POD or something similar but I'd feel guilty if I said "yeah get a spider" knowing he'll be disappointed and want to sell it in less than a year.

I played through a spider once and found it quite pleasing, to be honest. Especially for the price.
Never played a Roland amp though.
I guess TS is better off finding out for himself.

Spider III s are absolute rubbish. Especially a 120W one. Why do you need a 120W practice amp?
#15
um change the amp...sucks huge cajones. get a nice tube amp...THAT's all you need.

true, considering that he is going for a very decent guitar. But not everybody can spend 1000bucks on an amp.

TS: If you want something with a lot of bang for the buck, I suggest you try the vox valvetronix series (www.voxamps.co.uk/ )They have really good clean and crunch sounds.

The rehearsal rooms I used to use were kitted out with a Marshal MG 100W stack and a Line 6 spider 75W half stack.

spent half my fuckin time twisting knobs to find a setting that didn't sound like ass. The distortion channels sound like they've permanently got a wah pedal with the treadle swept back on. Bit like an un-modded MT2 actually. yuck.

I have a Marshall 8100. It is the ****. It's the first set of Valvestates that Marshall made. You can find them on the 'Bay for 250-350. Its the head version. Then just get an MG cab and your set. No matter what people say about MG cabs, they are a good match for the 8100. Spiders aren't even decent. The spidervalve though, I liked. but that seems to be overpriced. IDK, I love my Marshall.
#21
Yeah, I don't know how much a 120w spider is but, A roland cube 60 would be much better.
#22
whoever said you have to spend 1000 bucks? its a practice amp righT? get like a valveking 112 or maybe a palomino.

He said he wanted the spider with 120 watts. I guess he needs something bigger than a practice amp.

TS, I think getting a smaller amp (50/60 watts) would be okay, too, as you can always use a pa system to mic it when gigging. For rehearsals, 50 watts is more than enough.
