Line 6: Spider IV 75

Price paid: £ 210

Purchased from: Amazon

Sound — 9
Through my Yamaha Pacifica, I can get any tone I want aslong as I'm prepared to put in the time to fiddle with all the controls, the song settings are mostly ok and accurate, providing you have them at a high enough volume.

Overall Impression — 7
I play a mixture of music I can find a tone to suit all styles. The major flaw with the amp is the volume, your saved presets are at a saved volume and if you are like me and you use it in the house at a low volume and then go off to band practise and have to put the volume up every time you change a tone, it gets really annoying. Overall this amp is pretty good, but if your playing live a lot its not for you.

Reliability & Durability — 6
The amp is mostly very reliable, it sometimes switches off and on again in the middle of playing something but that doesn't happen often. It is a pain though.

Features — 8
This amp has just about every feature that you will ever need, huge amount of effects and a looper, which is ok, but its only 14 seconds and you can't save it.

    How much does this differ (soundwise) from the Spider I amp? Because I'm really not a fan of its sound and feel.
