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.

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.

Fully Editable, Deeply Sophisticated

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.

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!!
