Hi Chas

How are you ? I am fine.

My new band is for charity, it started when an end of season party was booked at our ground and some people thought of starting a band, to perform at the party. They asked on a message board for a guitar player and I owned up, Weve been rehearsing now for a month or so and got about 5 songs down now.

I am on tyhe lookout for a big amnp, becasue these gigs are going to have a few hundred attending and I wanna ROCK

I've just bought a Line 6 Floor Pod last night and basically I was wondering if anyone had any opinions on them and if its good for anything other than making my guitar scream. I'm absolutely useless with effects and descibing what I want from them so I think the guy in the shop may have just dumped this on me.



Hi Chas its Keith, long time no see !!

I bought a Line 6 spider amp at the weekend, for my new band. Heres what Ive jsut weritten about it on another forum

Well, here goes.


Following many recommendations from friends, on saturday I bought the Line 6 Spider III 120 watt amp, with foot controller.

Yesterday afternoon, after it played really well for five minutes or so, the sound went very crackly and tinny)as though I was playing through a 50p transistor radio) then the amp turned itself off. I turned it back on again, and the only lights that came on were the LCD display, just a row of black squares on the display, and no sound. Turned it off and back on again, nothing. left it 10 minutes, still nothing. After an hour of this I rang the store (in Salford, UK), guy promised to rnig me back in 10 minutes, when he has spoken to Line 6. I stand there in rehearsal room wih guitar on shoulder, looking at dead amp, for 45 minutes, no return call. I rang them back, "wheres my return call ? Ive been waiting", the guy said he rang line 6 support line, was on hold, so gave up and went on his break.

I spoke to a manager, who said they would arrange a replacement and ring me back this morning with a time they cand eliver it. waited for this call all morning today, nothing.

Ive just rang the manager and said I want a refund, and told him what his staff were like. I cant give my business to a company that is so poor. And I dont trust line6 now, either.

For the time being, Ill just put the money in my savings account, I think.

Um......the Line 6 Spider amp, and the Line 6 Floor POD are two totally different things. I'm not too fond of the spider myself, but the Floor POD is an awesome unit.




I know they are different, isnt the Line 6 pod the red kidney shaped effects unit ? I rwas really mroe diuscussing my first (and last!) experience with line 6, and saying hi to my friend, who I havent seen for a while. Thanks for your input though
