I have a Line 6 Spider III.
I'm trying to get a tone similar to Buckethead.
Can I do this without purchasing any other effects/hardware?
Thanks a lot!

The hotbar should be floating parallel to the principle axis at this point. Next, take a hammer, and beat yourself in the face while crying JIHAD. problem fixed.

LOL, NOT HELPFUL!

Try the ultimate settings thread, there might be some settings already in there, and if not you'll get better answers than you will in here, there won't be as many people making themselves feel like big boys by laughing at your amp.
A dwarf might hear you. What then?

When you're saying "tone similar to Buckethead", what tone are you talking about? The guy is kind of all over the place in terms of tone.

+1 to the KillSwitch suggestion. Easy mod and fun to play with

What I'm looking for is the synth-like sound he uses. Jordan, Power Rangers theme, mostly his popular stuff.
I checked the Ultimate Settings Thread and it said run an OD pedal through the amp.
However, a guy I talked to said that MOST pedals were uneccessary because the Spider III's have so many built-in effects.
I was just wondering if someone here could help me get that tone.
Thanks to everyone! Any more advice, feel free to let me know.

Make use of the stickies at the top of the page! This is directly from the very first page of the settings thread.

Buckethead of Buckethead
Bass: 5-6
Mids: 5-7
Treble: 7-8
Presence: 6

Obviously, an OD in front of your Spider isn't going to be beneficial, so don't worry about adding in a pedal. The Spider has more than enough gain, an OD in front of it will only add noise. Try those settings with each of the amp models and use your ears to figure out which sounds best to you.

I tried that (messing around with the amp models) and nothing seemed to sound right. I'll keep screwing around with it see what happens.
I did check there first, but it didn't seem to work.
Trust me, that's the first place I ALWAYS look. I've got about 30 of those settings saved in my amp already.
Thanks!

Use those settings as a default and use your ears to make adjustments. You're not going to get exact, but worth trying.

delay delay delay!
search for that echo-like sound! (distorted)
