The 15W models are fine(maybe a bit overpriced, but fine) practice amps. 50W Spiders and above just seem pointless to me. Did the guy at least let you try out the Peavey? Trust me. It'll blow that Spider out of the water.

If you like it that's fine, but the 6505 would still be a better choice for most circumstances. If you can't find a second-hand one cheap enough try that new Bugera (can't remember which one offhand) which is very similar.

go tube ..youll regret it in the long run...6505 is amazing and can be had for 500 ish if you look for a used combo
#9
if you get a Valve Tube Spider with those beautiful Bogners you got yourself I good amp... but stay away from the solid state one.

dude.
dont get a line 6, horrible amps.
get a valveking if you want to go cheaper. or a 6505 if you want to spend that much
#11
I actually really liked the spider 3. If you want it to sound like a tube amp, you will probably be disappointed. As far as a solid state amp goes, it is by far the best for the money. You can dial in AC/DC, Smashing Pumpkins, Judas Priest and Pantera with the push of a button. I totally wouldn't buy a stack, but as a fun practice amp it is cool.

Thats a perfect example of an ignorant statement.
Be cool.

Practice, they're great. Worthless as a stack though.

The HD150 or the HD147? They're both different amps. The Spider series amps have a lot of fancy do-hickies and whatnot but they have a bunch of cons, that's for sure! They don't sound too good loud for one. The modeling in them isn't the best around and for what you're paying, you could get better. But hey, if you like it, more power to you!

Rock on and Get'cha Pull!

If you want the 6505 get the 6505. Dont let a guy who works on commission steer you to something he is probably going to make more on. Cheaper is rarely the best bet when it comes to guitar amps. Good tone costs money. And getting digital SS when you wanted tubes is not a good choice either. If you want all the settings get a pod or something of the sort. And unless your gigging in big arenas you probably dont need 120 watts. A 50 watt tube will be just as loud as 120 watt SS and sound a whole lot better.

I have that amp. It is nice till the volume gets up there (the point of the stack anyway) and then it tends to get noisy and muddy. Otherwise it is a cool versatile amp.
#17
ok i probally shouldnt have compared the Line 6 and the 6505 cuz alot of ppl arent realizing that the 6506 is like $1500, and the Line 6 was $400 at guitar center

I think everyone realized it -but you can buy a 6505 used for much cheaper.
