Today, Line 6 introduced the Spider® V MkII series of amplifiers for practicing and performing guitarists. There’s a Spider V MkII model for any skill level—from the compact Spider V 30 MkII practice amp to the full-featured gigging machine that is the Spider V 240 MkII combo to the Spider V 240HC MkII head with built-in stereo speakers for standalone use. The Spider V 412 MkII speaker cabinet is also included in the new line.
All of the amps let players plugin and immediately rock a traditional amp tone, or tweak parameters until they’ve devised a unique sound. All-new presets include vintage amp presets voiced by a renowned tube-amp maker, and artist and iconic song collections.
“The all-new Spider V MkII amplifiers have been meticulously designed to deliver outstanding tones and provide countless hours of smiles and satisfaction,” said Adrian Haselhuber, Director of Product Management, Line 6. “And they are the only products of their kind with two distinctively different speaker modes: classic for traditional tones, and full-range for acoustic guitars and music playback. Whether practicing or performing or both, there’s a Spider V MkII amp for every guitarist.”
Players who prefer to craft their own tones will appreciate that Spider V MkII amps come loaded with more than 200 amps, cabinets and effects, as well as 128 presets. Users also get an onboard tuner, metronome and jam-along drum loops; compatibility with the optional Line 6® FBV™ 3 Foot Controller; a USB interface (along with the free Spider V Remote app); and the ability to trade presets with the Spider V community at CustomTone.com.
All Spider V amps from the 60 MkII up also include built-in wireless receivers that pair with the optional Relay® G10T wireless transmitter (or other Line 6 RF2 transmitter), and the Spider V 120 MkII, Spider V 240 MkII, and Spider V 240HC MkII feature stereo XLR direct outputs for connection to a mixer or sound system. Furthermore, the Spider V 240HC MkII head contains a 50-watt amp for its two onboard 4" speakers.
