Im thinking about upgrading my old Mega Amp 30w to a more powerful amp with more settings and effects. I like the Roland because of the Amp Modeling sounds, but I was told that the Line 6 Spider III 120w was only $40 more for that much more power and there are a lot of preset effects. Now, I havent been able to try out this amp yet, but I want a amp that has crisp-authentic effects like the Cube 60. Does the Spider have the same effects/amp modeling features as the Cube and are they better/worse etc. If the Spider has crap effects then I should just go with the smaller wattage Cube because im all about how it sounds, not how loud it goes.

I have a spider.
Imagine what an amp built by Hellen Keller would sound like on a uber-kvlt black metal setting. THAT is Spider Amp

I'd go for the cube, I have cube60 and I also once had A line6 spider II 30 comparing those two the cube smashed my head with it's sounds.

So Cube FTW +1

I'd definitely go for the Spider.

TS, don't touch the Spider with a 10 foot bargepole, the Cube wins by a mile.

If you want better sound, go for cube. If you want useles loud amp with bad sound, you can go for spider. but you can tell your budget and sort of music you'll play and we'll give you some more reccomendations...
#13

don't listen to them. spiders are great amps. i have one and i love it. it has good effects, good distortion, and good presets. i've uesd mine for small gigs and it works great, though the footswitch is a must. don't buy the cube, get a spider.

So a 120 watt amp is only 40 bucks more than a 60. Think about that for a second 40 bucks for twice the power must be a reason the spider is cheaper. You will find most on this site will tell you the spider amps dont sound very good and electrically are not very reliable. The others who say its a great amp are tone deaf. Your not going to get any sort of decent 120 watt amp for that kind of cash.

If I was a mod I would ban you until you developed an ear for tone. Good distortion? Not at all, it sounds digital and fizzy.
