Line 6's Micro Spider: The Test - Itsy Bitsy Spider
Determined not to let Roland’s Micro Cube and Vox’s DA5 be the only contenders for portable-amp champ, Line 6 has entered the ring with its Micro Spider.
Anonymous 's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" (Too) Synthetic"
The amp is fairly easy to use, you can even store its settings to access it directly from the more micro cube.
It's almost the only positive of the amp ...
I must admit that I had to laugh reading the little note on the box touting "the quality of Line 6 modeling" when we know the spider range and sound setbacks, there is much to be perplexed.
This amp is no exception to the rule, channel "clean" and "acoustic" offering sounds cold and poor, without comparison with the micro cube.
Talking about the micro cube, its weakness lies mainly in the register saturated with sounds too "Gentillet" for rock fans a little heavy. The line 6 should logically defend themselves better with the channel "metal" and "insane" ... Missed again, the sound is muffled on the first channel and totally over the second draft.
The mediocrity of these two channels even more shocked when trying to record riffs via the exit "rec out" is a porridge without any dynamic (simulation not visibly HP) and unusable.
The effects are somewhat interesting in the sense that they do not influence much the sound, the reverb is insignificant and other effects can not be measured in an interesting way, the tremolo for example can not be changed on speed and not his intensity, it is basically still much too far.
It will take a tolerance to use this amp, even taking into account its status'ampli travel. The finish is of poor quality and the unit will not last long in heavy use. The sounds are all wrong and highly synthetic, add to that a feeble and devoid of HP low ... Better to move to the Cube.

avermeer's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
A guitar input.
The doc does not specify whether the guitar and the microphone can be used simultaneously.
In the shop where I tried it, the seller failed to answer this question, and I did not ask to test.
Simple and classic.
There, it spoils frankly.
It's just a horror!
The only sound is the crunch exploitable.
The distos are downright evil in the ears, even at low volume.
Distortion in the sound is unstable, nonlinear. That is to say that there are stalls, micro-cuts and unwanted oscillations.
We are far, far away from the Roland Micro Cube.
I have a Microcube Roland, and I was planning to buy this amp to complement, and because of the microphone.
I quickly drew a line on this bad idea.
Overall feeling: Yuck!
