Hey guys, Its been a long time since i used this forum, but I have a Line 6 Spider III amp with the Line 6 Podxt and I cant seem to find the right preset on the Pod website thing. Im using an Ibanez RG prestige and can't quite nail that sound, I thought about buying the Jemini pedal, but can anyone out there give me amp presets or better yet good podxt presets???

Thanks

Heh I love the 'get a new amp' responds when a person asks 'how can i get this tone with MY equipment'. Anyways, you got a Pod XT, so I'd check on the net for patches and settings that people have come up with, I came across a site that had a few of them so look around. Google is always a good start

Without lots of money, and some really clean playing, it won't happen.
No matter how you tweak that thing, it won't sound like an expensive tube amp.

Fair enough.
I've played with Spider's at friends houses, and I've never gotten a good tone out of them.
They've always sounded very "solid state" to me.
And Steve Vai's tone (from the clips I've heard) has always been a very tight tube amp tone.

But if you can get a good tone from the Spider, fair enough.
But from my experience, I haven't.

Yeah, you guys all fail.

The way you get Steve Vai's tone is by practicing 10 hours a day religiously.

You can get his amps and his gear, but you won't sound like him.

the only way your gonna get that steve vai tone is to have steve vai come and play through your amp.

you will probably never sound like steve vai, you will sound like you.
