Put your gain about 3/4 of the way, mid about 2/3, and the rest all the way.

I still stand by it as a nice practice type amp. I'll still upgrade in the foreseeable future, but I knew what I was buying, and I've never had it sound like absolute ass on me like that. Sterile at times (too digital anyway) but not like that. LTP, YouTuber.

It doesn't sound that bad for a practise amp in this one.

I think that guy could make most amps sound bad.



Agreed. Perhaps if his guitar was in tune...

See... I thought that sounded pretty good. The cleans had a nice balance which is impressive given the ceramic magnet in the super distortion and the distorted tone wasn't bad either. It's not an Engl but for somebody on a budget, it's not bad.

Don't blame the amp.. It's the guitar player...



It is the amp a little too, I've heard them in person and didnt like the tone...

I also want to make it aware that he is recording with a cheap camera and on board mic so it's going to sound like crap, even more so after youtube monos the audio out and compresses it all.

I put some killer sounding and looking projects on my youtube page only to find that the audio and video dont sync, the video looks all digitized, and the audio quality dropped at least 30% every time.

I have to look into their new high quality hosting thing though....

Corduroy is not a noob at all, so don't treat him like one. he was right, the tone wasn't bad for a spider.

Okay, maybe I was usinga bad example, but then, check out this demo of an MG player. A PRS and Tech 21 will not make a crap amp sound good, as is proven here.

You should check out the G3 DVD Live In Denver, the part of Malmsteen warming up at backstage just before the show. He's playing though a cheap MG15DFX and sounded very decent IMO.

But he can make any amp sound decent, he's ****ing Malmsteen.

recording with a cheap camera or not like someone said.. the cleans can be picked up well and if you're only picking up one thing with a camera.. like just one instrument it wont sound that bad..

and rofl at this guys comment:
"mynameisntbobbybob (1 hour ago) Show Hide 0 Marked as spam Reply wow those are some realluy good settings you've enlightend me thanks "

i mean wtf I hate how some people just don't have a taste in tone.. they lose it early in their guitar playing..
then are screwed forever


and omg this should be stickied.. so many people asking about that amp.. from now on in every topic I'm posting this video in response..


edit:

lmao same with the MG video

Don't get me wrong here. I'm not saying everybody should run out and buy a spider. I'm just saying they are more than enough amp for some people. The low wattage practice amps are perfect for beginners that haven't figured out their playing style yet.

On the other hand, spider amps do colour your tone a lot (It made the super distortion sound better than it normaly would when clean) and if you are not happy with your tone from you spider, you should really get a new amp rather than replace your guitar or your pickups.

It's not that I'm pro spider amps. I'm just not against them for beginners and bedroom players.

I didn't vomit at the clean tone for some reason.
The crunch channel was HORRIBLE though. Ugh...

I have dialup, so I didn't have to patience to wait for the metal and insane demos (which I assume he covered).

*plugs in 335*

I almost vommed after the first video.

I just want to +1 all the people saying enough with these bash threads.

Yes they aren't the greatest amps, but these threads aren't helping in the slightest to fix the problem. These types of threads aren't going to somehow overcome the multi-million dollar ad campaigns put out by the companies that sell these amps.

Which channel had the worst tone do you guys think?
I watched all of it, and I hated the crunch the most.

Metal, by far. It sounded like TV static. IMO crunch sounds bad just because of the EQ settings he said beforehand.. and not to mention the fact that it just sounds disgusting. I love how that channel is advertised as emulating the "brown sound."
