Just remember, It's only a practice amp.

Comments about Line 6 Micro Spider 6W 1x6.5 Guitar Combo Amp:

Line6 makes some very cool products. I love my variax acoustic 700 and my electric 300. Friends of mine love their green delay pedal. This unit, though, isn't as cool as I expected. Yes, it has nice preset tones. Yes, it has useful one-knob effects, but understand this; the chorus, the flanger, and the tremolo are different selections on one knob (can't have combinations of any two or 3 of these), and the reverb, delay, and sweep echo are the choices for the other effect knob - same deal.

Nice that there's a mic input - but it's 1/4". Nice that there's a tuner. It's feature packed and loud and full for the size and price. The eq section is useful. Really glad it has headphone and mp3 player jacks. The amp model presets are fun. Leave it to Line6 to give you a preset called 'Insane'.

You can even program the presets - a little bit. Meaning, you can preset the effects on them. Next time you go back to that preset, the effect settings will still be what you established for your taste, but beware, the eq, drive, and channel volume will be reset to Line6's taste.

I like the thing, but I'm going with the smaller, quieter, lower powered more solid Roland micro cube. And here's why: poorly designed noise gate on the Line6.

If you are a beginner or if you just want bang for buck, then this probably won't matter to you, but I plan to use the thing around discriminating ears at a campfire from time to time. On the guitar channel (though not the mic channel - but there's no eq whatsoever for the mic channel) there is a noise gate that seems to be placed right at the input stage. It can't be turned off and it's very apparent when the instrument gets quieter. If you play a sustained chord or single note, as the sound finally decays you will hear it cutting in and cutting out while the noise gate tries to decide whether to pass it or mute it. The problem is that it can't make up its mind for a few seconds and it sounds like the amp's been swarmed by tentative mosquitos.

I'm not especially impressed with the build quality either. The speaker is only protected by grill cloth and Line6 gave no consideration for what you're going to do with their external power supply - except that maybe you'll lose it and have to fork out more $ to buy a replacement - that you can lose also.

The 'chromed' knobs have one little black dot to give you an idea what your settings are and some require about half a rotation before they'll register your own adjustment after you switch from one preset to the other.

So, if you want a bargain, if you seldom set your knobs to less than 11, if you're flush with C batteries, and you promise not to drop the thing from any height greater than 6 inches, knock yourself out. But Line6 could have done better this time, for my money.

Alot for a little

Comments about Line 6 Micro Spider 6W 1x6.5 Guitar Combo Amp:

You'll be plesently suprised with this little amp. With all the different presents and eq settings, you can get a wide variety of tones out of it. I have used it with both my fender strat and my Ibanez acoustic for practicing. And even though I can't carry a tune, I like the microphone jack so you have the option to sing along. And I would say it holds a pretty good battery life too.

Big Sound from a Small Amp

By George Zamora

from Socorro, NM

Comments about Line 6 Micro Spider 6W 1x6.5 Guitar Combo Amp:

The Line 6 Micro Spider packs a lot of sounds and features into a small tote-anywhere package. This well-constructed battery powered amplifier accurately replicates many of the classic tones of much-larger amps, tweaks the sound to your preference with its built-in half-dozen or so effects, and delivers it all with amazing clarity through a specifically designed speaker. Its extreme portability and long-charge battery life works great on those outdoor excursions and impromptu picnic concerts. The Line 6 Micro Spider appears tough enough to handle ordinary bumps and bang-ups, but you probably won't be able to use in place of your carjack in a pinch. With proper care and little maintenance, it should be able to blast out the sounds for years to come. The only drawbacks I can detect so far are its cheap rubberized carrying strap--would've preferred faux leather instead, and the lack of another input for hooking up another instrument, microphone, or CD/MP3 player. Best bang for the buck at this price point!
