What defines the electric guitarist? His/her guitar tone... his/her amp tone. It’s not about how loud you can get, it’s about what is the exact tone that defines your songs and justifies your taste. Yes, I am talking about tone customization, tone customization with 1 guitar and 1 amp. Sounds difficult? It actually isn’t with Line 6 Spider IV 15watts guitar combo amp. The Line 6 Spider® IV family has the best practice amps in the market. Spider IV amps give you a variety of awesome tones—modelled on some of the most revered amps of all time—that sound great at any volume.
When it comes to practice amps, nothing could be better than the 1×8, 15-watt Spider® IV 15 or the 1×12, 30-watt, Spider® IV 30. Don’t just take my word for it, guitarists all over the globe are voting with their money: Over a million Spider amps have been sold! So why are so many guitarists flocking to these portable powerhouses?
There are several grounds, starting with tone. Line 6, which perennially presents the best amp modelling, has outfitted the Spider IV 15 with four advanced amp models including a clean, warm jazz-amp sound; a crunchy tone inspired by* a ’68 Marshall® Plexi; a high-gain, harmonic-rich sound that emulates a Mesa/Boogie® Dual Rectifier®; and a super-distorted, head-slamming shredding tone based on a Dual Rectifier® set to the red channel.
Spider IV 30 complements those four models with eight extra ones, for a total of 12, providing tones for a extensive range of musical styles from jazz to country to heavy metal, including emulations based on a range of classic Fender® amps, a Hiwatt® Custom 100, and numerous additional teeth-rattling, high-gain amps.
As these are digital modelling amplifiers, you can get the same excellent tone whether the amp is on 1 or 10, which makes both the Spider IV 15 perfect for rehearsing and practicing. Both also offer a 1/4-inch headphone output, which allows you to rock the house at 3AM, without disturbing anyone. The output also doubles as a direct out for recording. What’s more, you can plug in your CD or MP3 player through a dedicated 1/8-inch stereo input, letting you jam along with your desired music.
However, there are ample of other causes why the Spider IV family is believed to be the best modelling guitar amp line on the market. Spider IV 15 give you a 3-band EQ, a dedicated Drive knob and four switchable channels. You also get remarkable range of Line 6 Smart FX effects models including reverb, tape echo, chorus, tremolo and more. Tempo-based effects can be synced to the song using the tap tempo feature. You even get a helpful built-in tuner. Get an optional Line 6 foot controller (the FBV2™ and FBV Express™ MkII), and you can toggle on and off effects and amp models without taking your hands off your guitar strings.
As an supplementary bonus, Spider owners also get entrance to Spider Online, a free, web-based arsenal of lessons, artist-created amp tones and backing tracks.
With all those enormous characteristics, possibly the most significant reason that Spider IV 15 has turned out to be the best practice amplifier on the market is price. You acquire all of these vast tones and all these valuable and helpful features for a amazingly reasonable value.
