The latest collaborative effort from Line 6 and Reinhold Bogner, the new amp line offers the flexibility of world-class modeling, the performance of boutique-style tube amp design and many new features inspired by the original Spider Valve™ amplifiers, the line’s award-winning predecessors.
“Spider Valve MkII amplifiers will offer all the warmth and punch you’d expect from Reinhold Bogner, one of the top names in boutique amplifier design,” comments Aaron Suplizio, Line 6 product marketing manager. “Plus, combined with Line 6 advances like immortal amp models and premium effects, a direct-record output and extensive MIDI control, Spider Valve MkII is a complete package for all kinds of professional guitarists.”
The new amplifier line is well-rounded with two 40-watt combos and a powerful 100-watt head. 12AX7 preamp tubes (two in each combo; four in the head) combine with Line 6 modeling to deliver creamy, cascading distortion and enriched tube harmonics. Perfectly matched 6L6 power tubes (again, two in each combo; four in the head) in the Bogner-designed power section drive the Celestion® Vintage 30 speakers to provide unprecedented sonic impact.
Spider Valve MkII amplifiers feature 16 rich-sounding amp models and 20 brilliant on-board Smart FX. The amp models, inspired by the most celebrated modern and vintage guitar tones, provide the next generation in Line 6 amp tone. The on-board effects deliver a complete palette of colors and textures including a collection of beautiful delays, tangy mods and lush reverbs. Players also get access to cutting-edge effects including an astonishingly responsive intelligent pitch-shifter, a built-in looper, auto-wah and more. Four effects can be used simultaneously and edited completely to create the perfect sonic landscape. Plus, every working player’s dream, Spider Valve MkII amplifiers can save up to 128 user-programmed presets.
Foot-controller and MIDI connectivity make Spider Valve MkII the essential studio and stage centerpiece. A Line 6 FBV™ foot controller can add a volume/wah pedal, tap tempo for all time-based effects, control over Pitch Glide, an easy-to-read LCD chromatic tuner display and more.
