Line 6 launches Spider IV Guitar Amplifiers
Line 6 has launched the Spider IV, the company's latest line of modeling amplifiers for guitarists. The new amplifier line includes the most advanced Line 6 amp modeling to date as well as many fresh features, innovations and updates inspired by its best-selling, award-winning predecessor, Spider III.
The new Spider IV amplifier line is well-rounded with five flexible combos and a powerful head. Each of the four flagship amplifiers, including the 75-, 120-, and 150-watt combos and the 150-watt head, feature over 500 presets, over 300 of which were hand-crafted by 50 world-renowned guitarists, and almost 200 more that were inspired by famous guitar songs. The immense preset collection lets guitarists of all styles find their sound within the jangly cleans, scorching distortions and swirly, effect-laden tones of their heroes.
The Spider IV 30
The flagship Spider IV amplifiers also come complete with 16 of the latest and most advanced Line 6 amp models to date, as well as with 20 brilliant on-board Smart FX, a built-in 14-second Looper, and many more effects. The amp models, which were inspired by celebrated modern and vintage American, British and European guitar amplifiers, give guitarists one-touch access to the next generation of Line 6 amp tone. The on-board effects provide players with a complete palette of colors and textures. New pitch effects, including Smart Harmony and Pitch Glide, plus beautiful Delays, Echoes, Mods, Reverbs, Auto-Wah and more, can blend to create the perfect sonic landscapes. Up to four effects can be used simultaneously and all effects can be edited completely.
The 15-watt Spider IV combo features a distilled collection of four crucial amp models that all guitarists require in their collections, and six Smart FX (up to two effects simultaneously); the 30-watt Spider IV combo features a collection of 12 essential amp models and seven Smart FX (up to three effects simultaneously).
The Spider IV 150
Each Spider IV amplifier can dramatically expand its sonic capabilities with the addition of a Line 6 foot controller, including FBV Shortboard™ MkII, FBV Express™ MkII and FBV2™. These powerful and durable foot controllers deliver everything from wah-wah, pitch-shift and volume control to tap tempo, a chromatic tuner display and simple channel switching.
Providing all the conveniences that guitarists expect from Line 6 amplifiers, Spider IV amplifiers feature a built-in tuner, a CD/MP3 input, a three-band EQ and a headphone output that doubles as a high-quality direct-recording output.
The Spider IV HD150
Each Spider IV preset, amp model and effect exceeds the renowned Line 6 standard of sound quality. Every aspect of the tone, from the guitar input to the three-quarter closed-back cabinet and speakers, delivers exceptional definition, clarity and feel.
