It's a small amp modeling incorporating the channel amps in the Spider range, it offers the basic functions of the amp stack: a headphone / recording, some effects more or less usable ...

UTILIZATION

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 ...

SOUNDS

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.

OVERALL OPINION

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.
