MGR/DAEvo's review"Line 6 Spider III 30"

Line 6 Spider III 30
Features: Four amp models (Clean, Crunch, Metal, Insane with each being programmable), 6 effects with two used simultaneously (one of flanger, phaser, or tremolo, one of sweep echo, tape echo, or reverb), tap button for setting delay, input jack for MP3 or CD player, headphone jack, 1x12' Celestion, 30w.

My profile: Eclectic guitarist from Southwestern Pennsylvania specializing in jazz, rockabilly, swing, classic country, alt-country, and punk/new wave.

Purchased this amp because my gig amp was packed in a van and my practice amp was in the shop. Bernie at Larry's Music Center (Greene County, near Carmichaels) made me a deal that I couldn't refuse ($85), so it went home with me. This unit does seem to be discontinued.

It does what it says on the tin: 30w, decent 12' speaker, a couple of effects, and a few different amp models. I use it most for the MP3 player input and the headphone jack -- I can pick along with Don Rich or Wes Montgomery with neither my girlfriend nor the cats being any the wiser. The reverb is warm and retro and I probably overuse it.

Of the four amp models I use a total of one (Clean). The others are a bit too harsh for my style, particularly since I use single coil pickups (the Insane setting is so over-the-top that it becomes fun, though). The tremolo setting is a bit too dynamic and could stand some subtlety.

It is well built and I've had no problems with the unit, despite dropping it down a flight of stairs and the constant cat attacks on the power cord.

A fine, inexpensive, and useful amp for silent practice or just noodling around. For a fun setting try Clean channel, Bass on 10, Mid on 10, Treble on 5, and Master Volume on 10. Adjust your level with the Drive knob and fine-tune with the Mid control.

trnasistor a small amp modeling
phazer chorus delay reverb and 4channels (clean, crunch, metal, insane)


has set this amp is just pure happiness
easy to use, can be updated to disrupt already without fear for its ease of use but also for the touch very quickly hide who knows to appreciate this namely a function store (registration Presset) that are active in still rely on the channel in question
the manual ... it is well to know the system functions as blind if the amp is so easy to use the first test to be forgotten quickly


agree it has all styles of music even if it's still an amp line 6 .. very focused and therefore metal
my style of play requires the aggressiveness of the power (a few gains a little more serious and acute death) but you can very easily go in the big heavy cradingue well as in very soft clean dailleurs for saturated channel to a difference between the channel and insane metal I would say that the canal would be a nice metal overdrive (punk) THE big and insane distortion (metal)
I play it with some one les paul rg series its
I love it settles the insane channel Gammon (not even need to pedal distortion) then I love the clean
for which ais channels crunch and metal are nice but I do not use more than that if not ever


I've had for a few years near
I tested a lot of amp in any case enough to say that it is not lemeilleurs amp in the world but that baths use it's hard to do better cushy you can play in his room while Dad Mom and pionce and without piss squarely person or yell neighbors and trigger riots
I love its versatility and saturation hair cell is what I like
value for money is very correct have paid the price of an amp you buy an affordable amp that you do this will separate most certainly not
very often I test bugera amps mesa orange and when I get home and I plugged into this amp I feel no lack so yes I would do this choice rather than twice!

It is a 30 watt transistor amp, the power level is a good 30 watt ...
I find this amp great, it has several effects:

Choose this amp to sound "clean" covers everything that is between the ballads and jazz. The tone controls will help you get the tone you want.

This model is based on * a '68 Marshall ® Plexi 100 watt inflated: the combination of a Variac with the bypass input channels creates that infamous "Brown Sound".

This model is based on * a Mesa / Boogie ® Dual Rectifier ®. This model is suitable for metal pieces to white heat.

This model is our version of "devastating" to the memory containing the Red Mesa / Boogie ® Dual Rectifier ®. Combining the intensity and impact of memory red "Metal", it contains more acute for medium and a grain as sharp as a razor blade.

Together these effects can combine very well:

* Phaser
* Chorus / Flanger
* Tremolo
* Sweep Echo
* Tape Echo
* Reverb


The configuration is not particularly difficult, the sound is already preset it to say that the first time you plug the amp you already have a good clean sound, jug, metal and insane, it's up to you after the change if you do not match.
and in case of problem there is the manual but I do not think it's important.


It suits me perfectly for my style of music as pressing a button you can go to multiple sounds.
After it's your test ...


I use it for more than six months, I like this amp in all its great effects well done.
This amp is perfect if you buy the pedal FVB For control any effects ...
Before buying I tried the spider 3 15 watt behringer amp, a marshall 30 watt, a vox 30 watt ...
value for money is good, it's true that the Marshall MG30DFX home is about € 200
but for a few dollars more to invest in a line 6
I would do this without any problems choosing whatever may be the most powerful spider 3 look great too ...

Vandoudy's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

30 watt transistor amp ... He potato. I never had to push very far the volume knob (must also say that I play in my room: p). 6 Intgr effects, one can mix two once, I use personal trs little (I find a little gadget) except for the sweep / tape echo from time to time and reverb that I uses it a lot. They can also be via a CONTRL PDAL I did not. The amp is sturdy, the knobs of good quality trs.

Regarding connectivity, the possibility to connect an external source (CD player, or even between the PC via mini-jack) came in handy. If not, well, between a skyscraper ct output of the other. : P


Trs easy to use ... Hardly need the manual except for functions caches (a noise gate, and a boost of distortion - by the way, I have not seen a big diffrence). It's pretty simple to find the sound you want. A few times by turning on the amp, I had a "bug" (impossibility to change MODEL amp) but in dyeing and on again, no problem.


We are dealing amp for beginners, so I knew when you buy that I will not sound fantastic. FYI, I use it with an Ibanez RGR321EX. In fact, this amp combines the good and bad. In clean, no worries. Modlisation the "crunch" is not bad either, only problem, even the distortion grows back, it still lacks a bit. But that's okay. However, the amp MODEL "mtal" is trsdcevant. The sound is rather flat, cold, lack a bit of distortion too ... To me who only plays the mtal, could be a real handicap or ... The MODEL amp "insane" is gnial. : D For me it is what really makes the quality of the Spider III. Playing with rglages can be obtained trs large variety of sound with this modlisation. Well, a still sounds a little cold, metal, etc.. but should not RVer for a transistor amplifier and the price is pretty terrible. : P


I recently started using a prs year. I bought it as the way beginners, based on my opinions read, CHARACTERISTICS, etc.. Without having tried neither he nor other models. APRS time, my opinion is mixed: a good amp, trs not expensive to get out a big sound mtal is what I was looking for, however j'esprais a little more versatility and sounds better to play softer.

In terms of quality-price ratio, I can hardly speak but I will say "good no more." Finally I told myself that if we have a limited budget and that beginners, is better to take an amp like the Roland 100 euros micro-cube (a forcment will be a temporary solution). And with a bigger budget, invest in an amp worthy of the name + effects pedals. Ultimately, if beginners but we play right away in a group, this amp can be a solution INTERESTED.
