I bought this amp about 6 months ago at a local Guitar Center. It cost $650 and i bought the pedal for $70. THE BEST DEAL I EVER MADE!!!

This is a GGGGGRRRREEEEAAAATTTT amp. It is the best amp i have ever played on. The 100 watts(200 watts max) rumbles my house at a quarter of the volume. It has great clear sound and can be heard from a mile away. The digital effects are great! You can change from 6 different models that all are awesome.You can change from pure clean to pure insanity. The distortion is awesome. there are many effects that you can add on to your sound that all sound great! I love how you can save 4 settings and change to them any second.I love this amp!

Nothing!!! The......

Nothing!!! The people at line 6 must all be genuisses(unlike me). Every thing about this amp is perfect.

This amp has great, great, great construction. Since i have had it, nothing has broken, not worked, of been damaged! The quality is unbelieveable. Every time i plug my fender into it, it sounds like new. Awesome!

I love this amp. It is the loudest, clearest, best sounding amp ever! Everything about it is great. If you ever need an amp, get this. You will be amazed!!!

I bought the amp from a friend second hand (but only used twice) for £100 but I don't know how much it useually costs.

The quality of sound, it is amazing!! From sleek clean jazz tones to blow your head off heavy metal insane distortion.

Brilliant if you are playing, classic, jazz, country, britrock, punk, indie, blues, metal - the list goes on and on...

It also comes with handy features like noise gate, extra gain, and loads of smart fx.

It has no line out, which isn't much good if your in a band (but you can always just put a microphone and get much better quality than a line out anyway), it has an upgrade, the Spider 2, which is probably 100 times better which makes me jelous and......

But thats about it, it has hardly any cons.

I can't really tell because it barely goes out of my room but I use it as a seat alot and it seems to still be alright so I guess it is sturdy enough.

The buttons and knobs are still attached and everything works so they are okay... theres not much more to say.

This amp is brilliant!!! Definately to impress, for more imformation go to; www.line6.com.

I aquired this unit from the guitar amp and keyboard center in Brighten and payed a grand total of £329.

Likes its a lot of fun to play with the effects are great and having three on at once sounds good with some tweaking. The presets are really good to get you started.

The clean channel is a bit wooden, i know its a modeling amp but it really lacks any character at all. The two stomp scrolling footswitch isnt good enough to quickly access sounds live meaning you need to fork out another 70 quid for the fbv4 footswitch. For 150 watts its not exactly screaming with power. You also get a lot of feedback.

It looks really cool but i dont think it would last 20 years like a marshall......

I enjoyed experimenting with this amp but after two days i realised it wasnt the amp for me. I use a boss metalzone for my distortion and the clean channel just wasnt up to scratch. I took it back and got a marshall avt 275 which is a far superior amp for tone. I still think its a good amp but i think the spider 2 amps are much more begginer amps. The effects are good but the clean channel is tooweak for my tastes.

I bought this at Guitar Center in Lynnwood, Wa for $650 and an extra $70 for the four-button footswitch

This amp has a very versatile sound. It has multiple settings designed to emulate certain amps, from Fender Twins to Mesa Boogie Rectos. The heavy distortion "insane" setting is great for metal leads, and the clean sound is very expressive, especially with a little chorus and reverb.

The stock channel settings weren't up to my standards. For the most part, this can be taken care of with a little tweaking of the equalizer; however, the blues channel is just too muddy to use with single-coils (I recommend the clean channel), but sounds OK with humbuckers.

Also, the "insane" setting......

The stock channel settings weren't up to my standards. For the most part, this can be taken care of with a little tweaking of the equalizer; however, the blues channel is just too muddy to use with single-coils (I recommend the clean channel), but sounds OK with humbuckers.

Also, the "insane" setting is a little too messy to be used for rhythm guitar. It loses its clarity when playing chords; it is best to use this setting solely for lead.

The four-channel setup is great. Once you get your ideal channels set up, it only takes a flick of the footswitch to get (not all, but) many of the sounds that you want.

It's a standard combo amp, nothing more, nothing less. The covering is vinyl, and it feels fairly durable. You may not want to drop off of a building or anything, but for standard uses the construction is solid enough.

I would have preferred casters on this amp (it is a little heavy), but those can be added.

This is a good amp, in terms of its versatility and metal-ripping abilities. However, if you put this head-to-head with an all-tube amp, it's obvious that the Line 6 can't pull the same tone and clarity duties as the tube. Overall, the distortion has a great lead sound, and the clean is just sparkling. In terms of rock or blues rhythm, it could be better.

The bottom line: if you can find a used tube half stack or combo in decent condition for less, that may be the better option (unless you're into the muddy sound, as some people are). But, for me, I think a tube amp with a good distortion box would have sufficed (but then I would have lost the versatile sound).

After much debating, I would call this match a draw. Go play the amps yourself, compare, and decide which best suits your personal style.
