Line 6 Spider 112 ROCKS

The Line 6 Spider 112 ROCKS ITS THE BEST AMP for under 400.00 that I have ever played. Dealers like Sam Ash and ZZsounds (Guitar Center will match the price) are blowing out these amps for 399.00 as they get ready for the new Line 6 Spider Mk II. I cant get over how clean and tube like (oh it is a real tube amp in there 2 2 12Ax7 and 2 6L6 4 tubes total). Easy to use and if you have the FBV short board you can control the whole amp from a pedal board. Total power is 40 watts but its loud. Looks great too. Hears what Line 6 says “Spider Valve™ is the result of a groundbreaking collaboration between Line 6 and Reinhold Bogner fusing the versatility of modeling with the performance and feel of a world-class tube amplifier. Just as we revolutionized the world of amps through our pioneering modeling technology, Spider Valve shatters the boundaries of tube amp performance by applying that same tonal range to Bogner’s all-tube amp design, boutique component selection and stellar voicing.Spider Valve delivers 12 channels of amp modeling – combined with several flavors of built-in modulation, delay and reverb – driven by an all tube, all Bogner amplification design boasting 6L6 power tubes, 12AX7 preamp tubes and premium Celestion® Vintage 30 speakers.Combining the performance, response and feel of a well crafted tube amp with the inspiring capabilities of amp and effect modeling – Spider Valve delivers the best of both worlds” Line 6 web page
