LINE 6 spider mkII 112 combo amplifier
75 watts 1 x 12 Celestion
This is a fantastic little amp in immaculate condition.
I would really like the buyer to collect but I will find a box and send it by next day delivery to most of the mainland UK for £18 if necessary.
This is what a reviewer said about it...
Pros:Versatile range of sounds to suit all musical genres. Very user friendly.
Cons:Slightly flimsy build quality. At this price any other complaints are not really valid.
The Bottom Line: The range of sounds available from is amp are top quality. For the price nothing else really comes close.
I have previously written a review on the Mark 1 Spider 112
and if you read it you can see I was not overly impressed.
A pro guitarist friend of mine recently brought a Spider II to a jam
session and I was knocked out by the quality of the tones in this
As I needed an easy to carry amp for band practice I went out and bought one. I live in the UK and the price was under £200.
The amp is quite light and everything happens on the front panel.
Around the back there is only the socket for the power and the 12"
Powering up the amp you are treated to a light show as all the led's
flash. On the rotary dial on the left there are 6 amp types with two
models for each. The LED changes from red to green at each position on
the dial to show which model you're using. There is a choice from
crystalline clean sounds through to enough drive on the "Insane" model
to satisfy even the most hardened metalhead. In between there are
Fender type twang based on the Deluxe Reverb and Bassman, Blues, Crunch
based on Marshall amps and Metal modelled on the Boogie Dual Rectifier.
Each model on the dial has a preset sound with effects added. These
can be easily modified using the 3 band EQ and drive knobs. Up to 4
customised sounds can be stored in the amp and accessed by 4 buttons on
the front panel above the EQ knobs.
The previous model did not really like you placing a drive pedal before
the input. The Spider II works well with pedals like the Tube Screamer
or my favourite the Voodoo Lab Sparkle Drive. The sound is really
dynamic and cleans up when you back of the guitar volume like a "real"
There are inbuilt effects, which can be added to your sound. These
include chorus, flange, tremelo, delay, tape echo. The effects are on
two rotary dials and the amount of effect can be adjusted. There is a
button for tap tempo, which also switches on the inbuilt tuner. There
is a separate reverb knob so reverb to taste can be added to any sound.
The amp is built in China and build quality is acceptable but not
brilliant. Mine had a couple of wonky screws and when I caught the amp
on a wall the corner protector just split right off. I replaced the
bottom protectors with more durable items as this amp is in & out of
my car a lot.
I play in a function band that plays covers of various music genres and
this amp is really useful for getting the different sounds required. I
have used it for a full gig and was well impressed with the
performance. The 75watt output is loud enough for small to medium rooms
and for anything larger you can use the headphone/DI output into the
PA. There is also a socket for connection to various Line 6 floor pedal
All in all I am well impressed with this amp and for the price it’s a real bargain.
