The 15-watt Spider IV combo features four amp models and six Smart FX (two effects simultaneously) Spider IV amplifiers are feature-packed with new artist-created presets and amp models, gorgeous new effects, FBV™ foot controller compatibility, and much more!
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 Celestion® speakers, delivers exceptional definition, clarity and feel.
Spider IV amplifiers can dramatically expand their 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 can 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.
From sparkling clean tones to high-gain metal tones and beyond, Spider® IV 15 delivers a perfectly distilled collection of history's most celebrated guitar tones.
The wide range of tones starts strong with a bright and distinctive American clean tone and then opens gradually to achieve the vintage grit and chime of classic British amplifiers. Experience the infamous "Brown" sound distortion, which is based on* a '68 Marshall® Plexi 100 with a Variac and jumped input channels, and a searing high-gain tone based on* a Mesa/Boogie® Dual Rectifier®.
Each of the four Spider IV 15 amp models provides an exceptional guitar playing experience that you won't soon forget.
- Channel A
Channel A delivers crisp clean tones, warm jazz tones and all the high-end shimmer you'll need with a generous amount of bottom end.
- Channel B
Channel B conjures the infamous "Brown sound" inspired by* a '68 Marshall® Plexi 100-watt with a Variac and jumped input channels.
- Channel C
A one-way ticket to tight and punchy high-gain heaven, Channel C is inspired by* the high-gain tone of a Mesa/Boogie® Dual Rectifier®.
- Channel D
Dialed in for shredding, Channel D combines the intensity and impact of Metal Red but it delivers more mid-range teeth for that bone-crushing grind. Inspired by* the tone of a Mesa/Boogie® Dual Rectifier® (red channel).
