Comments about Line 6 Spider IV 150 150W 2x12 Guitar Combo Amp:
I suppose there are some sounds that this amp cannot create but I have no Idea what they might be. With the number of preset sounds and the ability to edit and modify such sounds, there are sonic possibilities with this amp that are so numerous it is safe to say I could never use them all.
The amp increases the ability to be soncially creative such that no two pieces of music you write need to sound the same unless that is what you want.
The amp is powerful enough to overcome loud drummers with any type of sound. I think it is safe to say that when playing in any venue where the instrument amps carry the music, with vocals, if any are carried by a decent portable pa, no additional amplification is necessary. The 2 12 inch speakers put out some loud clean sound when necessary, while distortion can be dialed in to any level necessary.
Of course, to be produced within such a value price, the amp is built in China, but designed in the USA. This is an economic fact of life if you want quality at a low price. It is also solid state. But after playing guitar for a number of years, I really doubt the ability of many guitarists to tell the difference in sound bewtween this amp and a tube amp if you do not let them operate the volume control which is key to tube amp distortion. To me, there really is no benefit to tubes over this amp unless you like buying extra tubes that may have to cut short your set to replace one. That is if you spend the money to carry a set of replacements. Of course, any solid state amp can fail. A replacement should be available to you instantaneously on the stage to prevent any extended period of quietness that your spokesman cannot handle easliy. There is no perfect amp, however equipment failure is no excuse. If you play professionally, you may want to consider buying a slightly smaller and less powerful model of Line 6 Spider IV to save the evening.
In summary, I think the Line 6 Spider IV 150 is a great amp and an exceptional value. If you are in the market, try one out.
