Product Description

Line 6 Spider IV guitar amps redefine what is sonically possible from modeling amplifiers. The Line 6 Spider IV 75 boasts the most advanced Line 6 amp modeling to date, over 500 presets and a truly evolved playing experience.

Get Revered Guitar Tones

Inspired by the features that made Spider III one of the most sought after amps, the Line 6 Spider IV 75 delivers an even more complete set of modern and vintage amp tones and Smart FX. Spinning the amp model knob on the slick faceplate is like browsing through a museum of the most revered guitar tones of all time. Explore all 16 amp models, pour on the celebrated effects and crank them through the 12-inch Celestion custom speaker like you own the place with your Line 6 Spider IV 75.

Plus, at your fingertips are over 300 presets hand-crafted for the Line 6 Spider IV 75 by 50 top rock stars and bands, almost 200 presets that give you timeless tones that span generations, and up to 64 presets of your own creation.

Hand-Crafted Tones of the Pros

Who do you want to sound like today? Over 50 rock stars and bands used the superior tones and jaw-dropping effects of the Line Spider IV 75 to hand-craft more than 300 presets. Access the tones of the pros with the push of a button!

Get Dialed In

Get one-touch access to almost 200 tones based on the best guitar songs of all time with your Line 6 Spider IV 75. From the switchblade-swinging slapback of the 1950s to the high-gain distortion of the 2000s, get the tones from Master of Puppets, Back in Black, Whole Lotta Love, Daytripper, Toxicity, Purple Haze, Head Like a Hole, Smells Like Teen Spirit, Crazy Train, and more.

Celestion Custom Speaker

Celestion guitar speakers are world renowned for their exceptional definition, clarity, and feel. And that's just what they give to the Line 6 Spider IV 75 guitar combo amp. Celestion custom speakers help clean tones sparkle and sing, creamy overdrives respond to the intricacies of your picking, and searing brutal tones launch themselves from the cabinet. The Line 6 Spider IV 75 featres 1x12" Celestion custom speaker.

Manual Mode

Manual mode draws a more traditional amplifier experience out of the Line 6 Spider IV 75. When Manual mode is activated, all front-panel knobs work independently of one another. (Out of Manual mode, choosing an amp model may adjust the settings of the other front-panel knobs.)

Turn Yours Around for the Full Story

To get the whole story of Spider IV amplifiers, you need to turn one around. All Spider IV combo amps feature a perfectly tuned three-quarter closed-back cabinet. This provides a tight, punchy, focused response that you can't get from an open-back cabinet.

LCD

A large, two-line LCD is your window into Spider IV. This is where you can deep dive into effects and adjust their parameters, scroll over 500 presets, see the tuner interface, name your user-created presets, get a visual representation of where your Smart FX knobs are set, and more.

Downloads and Upgrades

Keep your Line 6 Spider IV 75 up-to-date: Line 6 frequently releases firmware updates for their gear, and they include up-to-date features, presets, or effects. To check for updates, all you have to do is connect your Spider IV to an FBV MkII foot controller, and connect the FBV MkII foot controller to your computer. Run Line 6 Monkey and off you go.

Amp Models

At the heart of the Line 6 Spider IV 75 experience is a blizzard of artists, producers, engineers and sound designers who spent countless hours creating, comparing and tuning every last amp and effect model.

The result is 16 exceptional amp models that exhibit sophisticated touch response, complex distortions and tube-style compression that breathes like it's emanating from a vintage tube amp. The Line 6 Spider IV 75 delivers the distinct tonal nuances of a celebrated American, British or European guitar amp, and an exceptional guitar playing experience that you won't soon forget.

Smart FX: 20 Brilliant Effects at Your Fingertips

Start smart and dive deep with Smart FX on the Line 6 Spider IV 75. At your fingertips are 20 brilliant effects that deliver exceptional color, unprecedented control and multiple routing options.

Dig into the pitch effects to uncover Smart Harmony and other sonic secrets. Smart Harmony, Line 6's first intelligent pitch shifter, provides a chosen note above or below your played pitch. Turn your 6-string into a 12-string, kick out some triumphant '80s metal leads, harmonize within a key and a scale, and more.

Easy to use and incredibly infectious, Quick Loop, the on-board 14-second looper, has a multitude of uses (musical and otherwise). Loop chords for your own accompaniment, create several layers of melody, harmony and rhythm, or use it simply to audition your tone with your hands free.

The Line 6 Spider IV 75 also includes a complete palette of analog and digital Delays, spacey tape and sweep Echoes, tangy Mods, lush spring and plate Reverbs and more. The "swoosh" knobs make it easy to quickly dial in gorgeous colors and textures. And Tap Tempo syncs all your time-based effects.

The extraordinary Line 6 Spider IV 75 control allows you to tweak up to 6 effect parameters, set the routing of the effects (including the reverbs) pre or post, and refine and save Gate and Boost settings within each of your user presets.

zZounds Expert Review
Pulling the Spider IV 75 out of the box, I was immediately impressed with the light weight. At only 36 pounds, it would be relatively easy to get my whole guitar rig into a venue in a single trip. The amp is pretty well self-contained, with a 12-inch Celestion speaker, 75 watts of power, and a ton of amp models onboard, though I highly recommend one of Line 6's FBV MKII foot controllers: either the FBV Shortboard MKII, or the FBV Express MKII, which I used when demoing the Spider IV.

The Ins and Outs
Line 6 provides plenty of connection options on the Spider IV 75. There's a 1/4-inch speaker output for use with an external cabinet, and a stereo 1/4-inch headphone out for personal jamming. A third 1/4-inch (balanced TRS) jack is available as a direct output for recording or live PA reinforcement. You can connect a CD or MP3 player via the stereo miniplug input to rock along with your favorite tunes. Also, the FBV MKII foot pedals feature a USB connection, which is great for offloading presets to computer for deep editing, and can also be used for updating your Spider IV's firmware as necessary.

Easy-Access Tone
As soon as the demo amp and pedal arrived, I took them over to my rehearsal space for some serious noodling. I usually like to get hands-on right away before cracking the manual to see how intuitive it is. Good marks for the Spider IV 75; I was able to dial up the presets and create and store a few custom sounds without the book.

The Spider IV 75 can be used like any standard guitar amp, with manual control over the gain, three-band EQ, reverb, and drive. Unlike a standard guitar amp, the Spider IV has a special knob that gives access to eight amp models. Each model has two variations, for a total of sixteen starting tones. The gain character intensifies as you sweep through the models. Starting at Clean, you move to Twang, then Class A, Blues, Crunch, Hi Gain, Metal, and end up at Insane. In addition to the amp modeling, three "Smart Effects" knobs let you add additional color to the tone. You can pick a model, tweak the EQ and drive settings, and add effects to get some good tones with little effort.

Ready, (Pre)Set, Go!
Turn off Manual mode, and you'll find Line 6 has already done a lot of the heavy lifting for you, dialing up some tasty amp model/effects combinations with pre-tweaked EQ settings. Presets (preloaded and user-created) are accessible from the four banks (A-D) on the front panel, and can also be selected via FBV foot controller. There are over 300 artist presets, making it easy to zero in on the sounds of your favorite bands and guitarists. You'll find presets from Coheed & Cambria, 311, Deftones, Maroon 5, Lee Ritenour, and more. On top of that, there's another couple hundred song presets mimicking a ton of popular tunes. If you play in a cover band, this is a huge time saver. Song presets are conveniently organized by decade. Scroll to the '60s and you've got "Hey Joe," "Sunshine Of Your Love," etc, then jump over to the 80s for "Crazy Train" and "Master of Puppets". These presets range from the 1950s to the 2000s. As if that's not enough, the Spider IV features 64 empty slots to hold your custom creations.

Tap 'N Loop
The Spider IV features a tap tempo switch (front panel or foot controller-accessible) to get time-based effects in sync with your playing speed. The Quick Loop function provides up to 14 seconds of looped playback for self-accompaniment.

Killer Tone
I've heard many tone-purists talk smack about modeling technology, but I was impressed with the sound of this amp. It may not sound exactly like a Plexi or a Twin Reverb, but I felt it was close enough for Rock and Roll, especially for the money. Especially because it does both of those and more. Plus, no two Plexis or Twin Reverbs are going to sound exactly alike anyway. In fact, I have a vintage Twin Reverb at the rehearsal space, so I was able to do a pretty tight comparison. The Spider IV does a good job of recreating the essence of each of the modeled amps, and that's really what you're wanting with an amp like this. It felt like I was getting the response I expected from the tubes on the Twin model, though the reverb emulation was a bit lacking.

I played with all the different models to get a sense of all the tonal possibilities, and particularly enjoyed the clean sound coming from the Blues model. It's based on a vintage Gretsch 6156, and offered a very musical character with wide dynamic range. I brought the volume up on the guitar and was able to get that crying, almost-ready-to-break-up sound with single-note Blues licks. Switching to higher gain, I absolutely loved the sound of the Insane model with the "Red" variant. It produced a Boogie-like Dual Rectifier tone, with smooth, singing sustain and a ton of clarity. Some amps get a little muddy when set up like this, but I was able to play complex chords and hear plenty of subtle harmonic detail.

Next, I worked my way through some of the song presets, picking out songs I was familiar with to see how the sound stacked up to the guitars on the recordings. I plugged in a dual-humbucker guitar and dialed up the "Master of Puppets" preset. I chugged my way through the intro and first verse, and the tone was spot on. Similarly, the "Crazy Train" preset was completely believable, instantly evoking the Rhoads mojo. Next, I strapped on a semi-hollow ES-335 and attempted a Larry Carlton solo with the "Charlemagne" preset. It didn't sound as accurate as the previous two song presets, but after some fiddling with the EQ settings, I was able to get pretty close.

The Bottom Line
With its trim footprint and great sound, I feel the Spider IV 75 is a great all-around amp choice. The wide array of presets are perfect for cover bands or session cats that are always looking to dial up convincing tones quickly. I also see this amp coming in really handy for guitar teachers trying to help their students learn popular songs. The biggest benefit, in my opinion, is the huge range of tones you can pull out of the mind-numbing number of amp model and effects combinations. Definitely something for everyone here. And not having to cary a truckload of gear or dealing with signal splitters or impedance mismatches or looking for multiple power outlets to get all those tones? Priceless. The amp itself is completely capable, but once again, I highly recommend one of the FBV foot controllers to go with it. The ability to call up presets and make tweaks without having to walk back to the amp every time is a big plus for live playing.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (66 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Perfect companion for my Spider Valve MKII Head"
Overall: Since this Line 6 Spider IV 75 Guitar Combo Amp is so so similar to my Line 6 Spider Valve HD100 Head It is the perfect practice/smaller venue/backup amp for me. I have been able to get very very close to same tones I use normally and don't have to drag my 412 and head everywhere I go to play to have my presets with me. Since i use the Line 6 FBV Shortboard MKII Controller Pedal with both amps I don't struggle at all when I switch rigs. The combo is loud enough to provide good stage volume and sounds great mic'd up. One could easily use this combo in a smaller venue un-mic'd and of course you could use it anywhere with a decent PA. The only thing that would make this pair sweeter would be if the the amps used the same preset editor instead of one for Spider IV and one for the Spider Valve MKII and you could save your presets for use on both amps instead of having to manually enter a preset from one from to the other. I guess one could always go with the Spider Valve MKII 112....hmmm..... but that is really a primary combo amp and it is much heavier... I say get one and be pleasantly surprised what you can get out of it. I highly recommend getting a foot controller with the amp...it will make your life so much easier.
Style of Music: What ever needs played ...lean towards rock and hard rock a a personal preference.

"Killer tones and effects... swiss army knife of combos"
Sound: This amp is smokin! great tones... you do have to tweak the brashness out of some of the presets, but when you do, look out. This is an incredible deal. A whammy pedal is $200 alone! Feature: Hard to beat all the great effects and tweak-ability. Great effects, my current FVB floorboard (Flextone) worked fine. Ease of Use: Simple to access presets and to build your own Quality: We'll see... just got it, so I hope it last a long time :) Value: 10++++++++ here on te value.... best going these days. Manufacturer Support: So so here on Line 6 in the past... hope I don't need them
