The Line 6 Spider Valve HD100 was the best selling tube head in America when it was released. Now, Line 6 has made it even better with its follow-up, the MkII, which incorporates even more amp models, effects, and sophisticated features into the all-tube design. It still features the signature boutique-style construction and still combines top of the line modern amp modeling with a genuine tube amp. Get the tone you always dreamed of, and build your own signature sound.

The Dream Team

When combining the best modeling has to offer with the best in tube amp construction, you want the best designers in both fields working together. Line 6's reputation for digital innovation is no secret, and they enlisted the help of tube wizard extraordinaire Reinhold Bogner to handle the analog side of things. The fruit of their labor--the Line 6 Spider Valve HD100 MkII--has all the juicy harmonic goodness of the best boutique tube amps with the near infinite flexibility you expect from the digital realm.

Amp Head

The Line 6 Spider Valve HD100 MkII features 16 of the most advanced Line 6 amp models, which, in turn, were inspired by some of the most famous amp heads and combos in the history of rock. With the amp you get everything from the sparkling clean tones of a Hiwatt(r) Custom 100 to the iconic Marshall Roar--and a whole lot more, all in one amp head. These amp models don't just sound like the real deal, they respond like the real deal, too. Call up a vintage Fender-style amp, for example, and it's tone stack switches to the familiar "scooped mid" setup. And, to further take advantage of modern technology it has 20 Smart FX, with capabilities for deep editing, seamless integration with MIDI rigs, and two output modes (one for the studio, one for the road).

Real Tube Tone--From Real Tubes

Many "hybrid" amps use low voltage tubes in the preamp and solid-state electronics for the power section. It's no hybrid--it's a genuine tube amp that gives you all the richness and warmth of the classic tube sound. With the Spider Valve HD100 MkII, you get two 12AX7's in the preamp section for warm, creamy breakup, plus four 6L6's in the power section for 100 watts of smackdown!

Add the Line 6 Spider Valve HD100 MkII to your rig today, get those tubes a-cookin', and top it off with the endless tweakability that comes with Line 6 modeling!

Product Description

Spider Valve MkII HD100 offers more amp models, effects and sophisticated features than its celebrated predecessor, the original Spider Valve HD100 combo (the #1-selling tube head in America**), but its all-tube design and boutique-style integrity keep it firmly rooted in the Spider Valve family.

Acclaimed Amp Tones

The Line 6 Spider Valve HD100 MkII has the tools and tones you need to construct your sound from the ground up. It boasts 16 highly advanced Line 6 amp models, inspired by the most revered American, British and European heads and combos, each one custom tuned for the amp.

Need to shape your tone? Tweak the Bass, Mid and Treble knobs just like you would on the original vintage amps. you choose an amp model, the EQ section behaves just like the EQ of the modeled amplifier. The Spider Valve HD100 MkII gives you a complete, organic and fully authentic representation of its 16 vintage and modern amplifiers.

An Instant Collection of Essential FX

The Line 6 Spider Valve HD100 MkII lets you start smart and dive deep with unprecedented control of the Line 6 Smart FX. 20 brilliant effects deliver unbelievable color, adjustability and routing options. You can adjust up to 6 parameters of any effect -- including the intelligent Smart Harmony and Pitch Glide, and easy-to-use 14-second Quick Loop -- and route it pre or post for an amazing collection of tone-shaping tools. Plus, it includes every guitarist's required palette of colors including beautiful Delays, tangy Mods, lush Reverbs and more. Up to 4 effects can be used simultaneously.

Fully Editable, Deeply Sophisticated

The Line 6 Spider Valve HD100 MkII is poised to become the workhorse amp for all kinds of pro players. Its seamless integration into MIDI rigs allows for quick changes to all front-panel controls, easy synching of your time-based effects (to themselves and to your drummer's click-track) as well as other time- and energy-saving features.

Plus, two output modes deliver easy and effective solutions for recording and gigging. Performance Mode lets you send a signal, which provides tube and modeling interaction, via the XLR out to the front-of-house engineer. Studio Mode bypasses the tubes to send the platinum-album Line 6 modeling only.

Awesome Tube Tone

Many so-called tube amps employ low-voltage "marketing" tubes to add authenticity to their "tube amp" claim. The Line 6 Spider Valve MkII HD100 boasts bona fide Bogner-designed 12AX7 preamp and 6L6 power amp sections that run at lethal voltages (about 300 volts and 450 volts, respectively) produce exceptional depth, tonal coloration and richness.

Exceptional Feel

The Line 6 Spider Valve MkII HD100 head pairs perfectly with optional 412VS closed-back cabinets. The slanted or straight cabs are stocked with four 12-inch Celestion(r) Vintatge 30 speakers to produce superior tone of the highest definition. Use them in mono or stereo, as a half-stack, or in any combination up to a perfectly ear-splitting set of eight.

Sound: I've been playing guitar for over 20 years & I know a thing or two about guitar tone. My friend owns the Spider Valve MKII 40 watt combo and he let me try it out at his house. I was blown away!!! My prior experience with Line 6 was the original Vetta amp that my other friend uses. That amp is solid state which I'm not a big fan of. Amp simulators, in my opinion, are like a tub of margarine. Sorry but it's not like real butter. The richness, texture and creaminess are all missed with solid state amp tone, at least at normal full band jam volume levels! So needless to say when I plugged the Spider Valve MKII, I could not believe the tone. Now, the amp is not perfect, but it's the closest thing I've witnessed. Being a full tube amp, you get all the tube tone, only with a hint of the solid state tone from the on board effects processor. And with all this amp does, I can live with that! I quit using my Mesa Duel and also my JMP head since I purchased the 100 watt version head. Beautiful cleans, Thundering Gains, Blues Twang and all points in between. It pretty much eliminated my effects pedal board as well. Well all except for the Deja Vibe... There's no replacing that pedal! All in all, I'm a huge fan of the amp and I can't believe that Line 6 won me over. BUT THEY DID!!! THANX

Value: Well worth the price Manufacturer Support: Line 6 has great support The Wow Factor: The sleek look of this amp makes it look mean and with the back lit glass front you can see from a distance there is something cool on stage. Overall: I waited for a long time to buy a new head and I am glad that I did. I can dial up any sound that I want with this great amp. The tube give that warm tube sound that everyone is after. With the ability to download custom patches from the line6 website you really can have hundreds of amps in one. Recording is a breeze with the line out of the back of the amp. Would buy this amp again and recommend this amp!!
