Mattfig's review"Half way there"

Line 6 Spider Valve HD100
This is a hybrid of tube power and digital preamp...

Features

100W Class AB tube amp through (2) 12AX7 preamp tubes and (4) 6L6 power tubes
12 dialed in amp models (channel voices) that deliver a complete tonal range from shimmering clean to insane grind
7 Smart Control FX (up to 3 simultaneous) including Tape Echo, Sweep Echo, Standard Delay (all with Tap Tempo) Chorus/Flanger, Phaser, Tremolo, and Reverb
Built-in front panel tuner
36 user programmable channels
300+ artist created presets covering the greatest guitar tones of all time
POD® XLR direct out for studio direct tone
Compatible with FBV2, FBV Express and FBV Shortboard foot controllers
Single and dual 1/4" speaker output jacks for connection to auxiliary cabinets (4, 8 or 16 ohms)
1/4" power amp input jack for POD® amp and effect modelers

This amp is built tough and sounds pretty ok...



UTILIZATION

A good sound? Not really...I'm a tube purist and this amp is only half way there...The digital preamps are buzzy, non-dynamic , and quite sterile...I don't like them at all nor do I find them to be faithful replicas of the amps they're modeling....Just a gimmick...

It's loud and simple to use...The presets blow but the sounds are the reason, not the presets...The FX are wet and cheap sounding....Sorry Line 6, I love most of your stuff but this one was a letdown....It just sounded like a POD through a tube power amp...Not good...Gotta get that POD out!

It's not even a good practice amp as it's loud and tubes like to be pushed...This whole amp is pretty much a great idea but junk product...

SOUNDS

WIth every guitar the results were the same...Crap....

Single coils were so ice-picky that it couldn't be dialed out without removing the entire top end...The lows are good and deep but not "strong" sounding...They're more resonant than punchy....

The presets can't save the bad tone from the preamps...They are all bad...It can be tolerable in a few settings but never good...

The EQ is ok as there is no saving the tone...The whole amp needs a makeover- the EQ can't fix it...

OVERALL OPINION

I thought it was cool that Bogner was tied to this one...But his section is ruined by Line 6's proprietary crap tone...The Marshall and Mesa tones were passable if you are tone deaf...The cleans are about the only worthwhile feature and they are not great themselves...

I tried many many amps....I own many many amps...I really wanted this to replace the fleet...But...

Not even close....I flipped it within a week....

Hatsubai's review"Still has that standard Line 6 tone"

Line 6 Spider Valve HD100
Line 6 has joined with Bogner in order to help boost their image as an amp company. They basically started from scratch, ditched the HD147 and started creating these hybrid tube amps. This amp features a 6L6 power tube section, two 12AX7 tubes, 12 different amp voicing modes, 7 different effects, built-in tuner, a bunch of programmable channels, the ability to go direct to FOH, and you can even plug in your POD to this thing.

UTILIZATION

They didn't do too bad of a job with this. Everything is laid out like a fairly normal tube amp, but you can also save certain presets and recall them for a later date. The head shell and head cab seem to be built fairly tough, but I can't attest as to how well they work on tour. I never played one, and if one breaks, I'm not sure how to go about fixing it due to there being tons of surface mounted components. I never read the manual to this thing, and I probably should have. There's a lot of small things going on in here that I didn't realize until afterwards. Thankfully, Line 6 has some nice manuals, so understanding everything shouldn't be a huge deal.

SOUNDS

The sounds were decent, and I think a lot of that is thanks to Bogner more so than Line 6. The cleans are probably the best part of this amp, but I'm not one to brag about solid state cleans simply because good solid state cleans have been done for years. What really matters is when you start adding gain, and it's not too bad. You can get some nice overdriven Marshall-esque tones and even some Recto tones in here. The effects are alright, but they're nothing I'd consider too amazing.

OVERALL OPINION

If you're looking for an all-in-one head that does it all, this isn't a bad choice. However, I still miss the all analog tube path that so many other tube heads offer. The sound isn't bad, but there are definitely better amps out there. Then again, considering how cheap this is, it's pretty versatile...

Nico76210's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Ouch ears!!"

Line 6 Spider Valve HD100
+ Modeling lamps ... 100w power. The amp had a lamp preamplifier added ... Not bother to exceed 1/4 of the volume ... It spits! Nothing to do with the previous spiders!

UTILIZATION

In simple single

SOUNDS

Metal and rock for me: perfect
J have not yet had time to explore all with different guitars but for me it's all good

OVERALL OPINION

2weeks ... Opportunity to buy on this site and I have no regrets over my spider 2 which was already good, but less powerful ... Lamps!

C is a perfect amp for me and that was customized in many ways that make it unique

Line 6 Spider Valve HD100
Does everything said in the first opinion on the technical side.
What I retain is the participation of Bogner for the collaboration of the lamp part of this amplifier.

UTILIZATION

It's pretty simple to use, the pRSET base gives a good glimpse of dj possibility of the head, the manual is readable and clear, no need to search for hours to find a sound you like.
Not known to other Line 6, I'm quite surprised at the quality of sound compared what I know (Engl Savage 120, Mesa Rectifier, Mesa 50/50 and 90/90 and finally JCM800).

SOUNDS

I think this amp is versatile trs, all fawn if you want the cream of each sound, you have to buy the best amplifier in each of its CATEGORY. With it, you most in a single head even if it is not exactly the best in all sounds.
I found the sounds trsrussis crunch, the distortion too.

OVERALL OPINION

I think the report qualitpolyvalence / trs price is good for the person who wants effects, full of sounds DIFFERENT in a single head and the power amp lamps.

I have two pregnant diffrent jou, a correct and a line6 mesa 412vs does. It sounds good on both trs, the enclosure as it line6 same good quality I found!
