Line 6 Spider Valve MkII 112
This thing I know has tubes in it but I would be fooled into thinking that it sounds like a processed digital piece of garbage. The other Bogner and line 6 combination actually sounds decent but this amp series sounds terrible. I can't emphasis this enough by saying do not buy this hunk of garbage. I am a huge Bogner fan and I do like Line 6 products but this sounds so processed that is isn't even funny.

You would be much better spending your money elsewhere because this thing doesn't sound at all like a tube amp. There isn't any way you can derive a solid sound out of this amp because the tubes seem to hide from you and won't come out no matter how much time you spend trying to dial this thing in.

I have to say Line 6 is good at making their modeling easy to dial in but the tone from their distortion and effects combination is just awful. Any guitar will work for you getting this thing to sound like trash so don't be afraid to play a first act guitar instead f something like an American made Fender Stratocaster.


This amp is a huge do not buy. If you want something in this price range than buy a used Peavey 5150 or a Marshal JCM2000 DSL and you'll be much happier with the tone of the amp. You'll need to get a cab but they are easy to come by too.

I woulnd't recommend this amp to anyone seriously trying to play the guitar. There isn't an engineer that will record you and not a stage hand that will mic up this hunk of garbage.

Line 6 Spider Valve MkII 112
What kind of amplification (lamp, transistor, ...)?
Works and modeling lamp

What connection?
One in, an effects loop

What is the power output?

What are the settings, effects? ...
Pfouu, full


The configuration is it simple?
Not really, to choose an amp and it will adjust the equalization on the other hand for effects, it's a hassle, besides, I am not using, or very little, the onboard effects, I find it hard to set and I can not find these particularly good sound effects.

The manual is clear and sufficient? ..
Yes, it is not bad.

Gets it easy to sound good?
Just select an amp and by setting the answer is yes, if we begin to embark on the adjustable pedals, non-
Personally, I use it I only have two or even three amp simulation, and I did not add effect over, I serve only me that my analog pedals for that.


Will it fit your style of music?
Yes it recreates necessarily more or less likely the most famous amps.

What kind of sound you get and with what settings ("crystalline", "bold", ....)?
Same, everything depends on the selected amp, I generally play on simuls fender with a clean sound, or a marshall plexi to the crunch.

What are the sounds you prefer, you hate?
1 the typical Fender sound
2 the typical sounds Marshall
3 Eventually the sound Hiwatt

The rest blah blah


How long have you use it?
a little over a year

Have you tried many other models before buying it?
No, otherwise I probably would not have chosen it.

What is the particular feature you like best and least?
Plus: The versatility.
The least: Some models are not glorious.

How would you rate the quality / price?
Despite its flaws, I found not so bad.

With experience, you do again this choice?
I would say no, although it is super convenient to be able to address several style of music.

Line 6 Spider Valve MkII 112
Characteristics, plethoric! The point that it is foolish as often among modellers we want to make tons here is squarely apotheosis in the good and the less good with "the best of both worlds."

On paper it looks like paradise in fact we all know that heaven does not exist such a price. (Quoique. ..)

Opportunities there are many many .... many, all is not well thought out but I think that beyond the marketing there was a certain socket head still as the product itself.

All types of effects can be imitated with more or less success. The Shortboard pedal is inseparable from the amp to me. Loop 16 seconds, uh this is a joke?!? possible to run a riff time to seek his sound.


Gets it easy to sound good?

NO ABSOLUTELY NOT! (In my opinion) I do not know more than that the POD then be little that I'm not part advantage.

Yet if we consider the BREW software configurations and overview of 100000000 possibilities (and bank 32 * 4 "channels" memorable) is appreciable not indispensable.
Infusion gives the impression of having a virtual effect rack but more complex use while simplifying it, YES it is a paradox, but now my experience allows me to take back and simplify the reasoning => Threshold for you is an insult in English, the world seems you frèquances a complex world, EQ is an exotic country SOON FORGET FLEE!

Plug and play if this limit is preset to a real CA-TAS-TROPHEEEEEEEEEE. But you take it from Line6 I also want! It must be good anyway.

How to give an objective score I want to put a good and a bad score ... they both sinned by excess but it also can delight connoisseurs .... it will be a 6 if I have to decide.


COME ON THIS IS THE CENTRE HOTSPOT, the center of attention.

My amp is gonna sound serious this race?

So MY answer is NEVER!

Ouha hard?! Well for me it sounded serious race is A REAL AMP and analog C POINT IS ALL. Ooooh you are deaf or what? Or maybe you have never played a VH4, BOGNER (the true ...), ORANGE, there are good and solid for all tastes. (FRAMUS, Mesa, EVH etc. each with its advantages sometimes disadvantage)

((((I note that the AXE FX that I have not had hands is just as well as the analog condition has to put a power amp lamp not dreaming ... but you will pay all This WILL PAY YOU MORE THAN 1000 BALLS!))))

Have reservations a bit anyway after X time triturated my stuff I found a clear, crunch, distortion so it is doable but the module pod taken without the power amp (see studio mode is called ...) is AC NUL ******. And I compare to other modeling ..... I still do not understand elsewhere.


How is the sound => OK if you take what is broad ... broad.

Another paradox I sold it recently I was glad not to have written my opinion .... laughing ... then I removed my ad ... more "need" tune urgently. In fact, I used this amp (well from time to time ... he could at least) but it was his guitar pedals to control RIG (which sounds much better on my sound in my studio and listen KRK ... . a hammer, or kettle, or a condom is not the "hearts" but it is useful, I see it as a tool if you want to practice .... what ... according to the effective context and I mean according to the context ...

How do you rate the quality / price?
To respond appropriately should rephrase the question
How do you report option / price? UNBEATABLE!

An amp powerful enough to play in a group with all the effects of the world ... 900 € with a midi foot to handle everything ... but you dream?

To my knowledge there are only Line6 to do stuff like that ... well they put lamps which light yeah why not, the dynamics YEAH I'm a "little" tank but again I play with a VH4 effect rack € 5000 more ....

A remake I did not buy it I NOT take a JCM 800 I used him stick a reverb and OD rolls bouboule! Over time I added all the effects one by one and I finished a tap dance ... ^ ^

But let the reasonable price Line6 combined with its possibilities is his forte. It should be seen as something practical ... and live next to my rack 12U + + 412 100 watt head (weight about 150 pounds) for any two people wear if not impossible .... it is practical! Make repeated / type bal musette with this is a good tool, if the mix is ​​not too demanding ...

PS: Note they say .... uh 40 Watt playing too loudly in the kind of noise that I practice I've never been able to put the knob at 11am .... no seriously this is ARCHI MORON .

PS 2: On a baffle 412 G12 100 K in addition to the V30 (I wanted to try it in all directions must believe) I was pleasantly surprised that you would think the Celestion V30 only the die is greatly ! This is a strong selling point pronated on advertising and more evidence that the dough is the ONLY purpose of Line6.
Then the solution without slamming too much more than the starting price would you it a 212 with a V30 or G12 + a head with 412 mounted with 2 G12 and V30 2 me last we're back in my world of headaches. it deserves it .. THE SOUND! But what are the chinoiserie deserves to take the lead out something you answer this question ...


kiks's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" A powerhouse!"

Line 6 Spider Valve MkII 112
The Spider Valve MKII is an all-tube amp and preamp in 2AX7 2 6L6 power of 40W

Both say that these are 40W ULTRA POWERFUL! small chamber players abandon the idea and quickly fall back to using the 5W!


Line 6 regulars will soon find their way in other settings will have a little fight and download the complete manual online at the manufacturer's website.
it is a long grind the beast to find its appropriate but it was soon after made the save and rename any upgrade and change from a PC connected to the pedal via USB


So the sound, since it is what it is:
it's not a real lamp because the sound comes from the modeling, but it was the dynamic lights, that is the precise rendering of the strings in the attack and that's what I wanted: play big sound with the dynamic and why this amp is just perfect!
he respects very much the guitar and microphones are on, the blow if like me you have multiple guitars, it will save multiple settings for each.
this amp can do everything and is much more versatile amp That a conventional lamp I had before, let me explain:
I used my 50W all-tube multiple pedals, distortion, reverb delay etc. ...
well now, no need!
Both say that it's the place!


I use it for the past 5 months and I finally found my happiness after 20 years of guitar! I did try my redneck who hesitated after having tried several amps lamp (Crate, Fender, Carvin), he immediately bought it and it also sends mail no presets:)
I do not particularly regret this purchase but I think nine with FBV Shortboard (required if you want to have all the options) is a bit expensive, about € 900
Remember to adjust the BIAS, not adjusted from the factory, and in case of change of tubes to the most neutral possible because the sound comes from the models!
