Product Description

Insane rock star settings. Yours for the taking.
Instantly access hundreds of killer sounds designed by the world's most notorious rock stars.

Get your hands on the latest generation of Line 6 modeling technology for the most detailed amp and effect models ever created.

If you crave the sounds you hear on stage or on your favorite albums, Spider III is here to deliver.

New to the Spider III is a huge range of killer mid-gain guitar tones. A critical advancement was made to the sound and feel of the Spider III line when their discerning panel of artists focused in on the venerable "mid-gain" range of tone to deliver the complex, layered and dynamic amp tone we all appreciate from classic and boutique amps.

Plug in and separate yourself from the posers.

Spider III 30
Spider III delivers detailed amp models based on some of the greatest guitar sounds ever created. To keep these sounds authentic, Line 6 kidnapped some of their favorite artists to dial in each amp model. Now you can rule the stage with the Insane model with its truly massive gain or explore your sensitive side in the studio with the Clean model. It's all up to you.

Amp Models
Clean
Select this Amp Model and adjust the tone controls to get crisp, amazing clean tones, great warm jazz tones, and all the high-end shimmer you'll need with a generous amount of bottom end.

Crunch
This Amp Model is based on* a '68 Marshall Plexi 100 watt with a few added extras; The combination of a Variac and the jumped input channels creates that infamous brown sound.

Metal
This Amp Model is based on* the Mesa/Boogie Dual Rectifier. Use this Amp Model to get a tight and punchy, high gain Metal sound.

Insane
This model is our "dialed in for shredding" version based on* the Mesa/Boogie Dual Rectifier red channel. It combines the intensity and impact of Metal Red, but delivers more midrange and teeth for that bone-crushing, brain piercing insane grind.

Effects
A great amp isn't the only part of a great guitar sound. With Smart Control FX, an exclusive Line 6 feature that automatically dials in different effect parameters, you spend more time playing and less time tweaking. Simply find the effect that you want, turn the knob to your desired intensity, and you're done. You can even use multiple effects at the same if you wanna get really crazy.

Effects Models (Up to 2 effects simultaneous):
-- Phaser

-- Chorus/Flanger

-- Tremolo

-- Sweep Echo

-- Tape Echo

-- Reverb

Ins & Outs
When you're playing with your band on stage just drag the Spider III on stage and crank it up. When it comes time to record, use the headphone/direct out and plug it straight into the mixing board for world-class POD 2.0 direct tone used in pro studios and stages everywhere! You can also use the same out with headphones for practicing in your bedroom. Want to play along with your favorite songs? Plug into the CD/MP3 input and you're good to go.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (36 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "A "practice amp" that surpasses the mark..."
Sound: I've been very impressed with the sound of the amp. The amp is definitely LOUD for a 1x12 30W amp. The custom Celestion speaker is the key to this little puppy's great sound I'm guessing. Feature: The 4 amp models are adequate. I'm not much into the Metal or Insane channels, so I use the Clean and Crunch channels. The 4 models should have been (for me), Clean (Twin Reverb), Tweed (Bassman or such), Cruch (Plexi with boost but no variac), Brit Hi-Gain ("Plexi Variac" from the PODxt). It'd be nice if Line 6 would let you download the 4 models you want for YOUR Spider III combo and install them to make your very own custom Spider. The effects are adequate, but they should have added a depth control. The "Smart Control" is certainly easy, but one extra "Tweak" knob added would have made it awesome. This amp is designed to be easy, so it's not exactly geared toward someone who is a "tweakhead" and needs control over every little aspect (I have a PODxt for that). I do wish they had included a foot-switch to enable/disable the effects and/or to switch channels... but you have to buy that separately and it can be expensive depending on what you get. Hard to make an incredible amp for under $200 and also include a $100 foot-switch tho' I'd guess... ;-) Ease of Use: Pretty simple... I'm not sure how they could make it easier. It works like a normal amp, but you can save your knob settings and recall them by pushing a channel button. The Clean channels is always the Clean channel, and you dial in the sound you want, hold the Clean button until if flashes, and your settings are saved, effects and all. Each channel button can be set up this way... then you just push the buttons to recall your sounds. Quality: The is pretty solid without being too heavy. The knobs seem rugged. The jacks are tight and make a good connection. The power cable can be removed from the unit while in transit. I would expect quality from Line 6 and they deliver. Value: You can't get an amp that's this flexible, loud and sounds this good for the same price. Manufacturer Support: I've never had a problem with phone and email support with Line 6. I had an original POD and they were quick to help me get the ROM upgrades for it when they came out. I haven't had any issues with the Spider. The Wow Factor: It's small... but not too small that it sounds silly (like a lot of practice amps out there). It's light - I don't like hauling around a big amp if I don't have to... but I want the thing to sound GOOD (and it does). It's sharp... nice grey tweed and tolex look. I like the knobs they chose to use... they look and feel nice. Overall: It's an awesome value. Despite my personal preference issues with the amp selections and limited control of the effects, it does the job nicely. I wanted something that wasn't too big to lug around but still sounded great, and loud enough to play for band practice and small gigs without sacrificing the sound quality... and it definitely hit the mark. I play straight into the amp with great results, and I've also run my PODxt into the MP3/CD input and it sounds awesome. I played it with my band last weekend in a large garage with a PA and other amplified instruments, drum set, etc., making lots of noise and it cut through perfectly... and sounded like I wanted it to sound.

Thank you. Your vote has been counted. Could you briefly tell us why the review was or was not helpful?

This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Great amp. Line 6 does it's job and does it well: bringing you the best amps."
Sound: The sound on this amp is freaking amazing!!! Clean, Crunch, Metal or Insane, along with a "Drive" knob to control how much distortion you get. Clean is just a clean sounding channel, no distortion at all. Crunch is a very blues sounding, with a kind of overddriven sound to it. Metal isn't exactly metal, you can get nice rock tones out of it. Insane is a fuzzy, sounding obscene helping of distortion. All of these with control for Treble, Bass, Mid and Channel Volume control. My only problem was with the crunch channel, because I sometimes got a little buzz when I cranked the Drive. Solution: Boss SD-1!!! Feature: Built in effects (chorus flange, phaser, tremolo) along with three delay effects (sweep echo, tape echo, reverb). The delay effects are great because you can control them with tap tempo. My only beef was that there was no slapback setting. If you're gonna put delay on, you might as well add a slapback feature, in my opinion. Ease of Use: Line 6 has never made it easier to get top notch sounds at a very affordable price! I never used the manual. Quality: I haven't had any problems with the amp so far. Everything seems to be made of really high quality. Celestion speakers are top notch!!! Value: You get what you paid for: a solid: quality amp that is capable of a wide variety of tones. I wish they would have put the amp models in here, like they did for the Spider III 75 watt amp. That would've made this amp much much better than it already is. Manufacturer Support: Never had to deal with them and I don't think I will ever have to. I'll give Line 6 the benefit of the doubt. The Wow Factor: It looks pretty great. You want a quality practice or gigging amp, take this one. Overall: Overall, definitely get this amp. It's great and is a lot of fun to work with
