Line 6, has announced that it has sold more
than one million Spider digital modeling guitar amplifiers worldwide.
Marcus Ryle, Line 6 co-founder and svp of
new business development, told us, "Obviously, we're thrilled by the achievement and flattered that so many guitarists have chosen
to rely on Spider amps for their tone. A decade ago Line 6 was the little amp company that could. Now,
thanks in large part to the major success of Spider IV, one the most recent additions to the Spider
family, we have this incredible reason to celebrate."
Here's the rest of what Line 6 has to say...
Recent generations of Spider amplifiers feature the bestselling formula of Line 6 amp models,
generous collections of effects and unmatched sonic flexibility. This combination is so
successful that between 2007 and 2010 more guitarists purchased Spider amps than any other
type of guitar amplifier.*
Spider guitar amps debuted in 1999 with six amp models, seven effects, 10 presets and the
choice of 1x12, 2x10 or 2x12 speaker configurations. Today the Spider line has grown to
include Spider Valve™ MkII (a family of tube amps co-designed with tube guru Reinhold
Bogner), Spider Jam™ (a top-selling jam-along amp that features backing tracks performed by
famous musicians) and Spider IV (an amp family full of #1-sellers).
Spider IV 30 is the #1-selling 30-watt guitar amp in the US, Spider IV 75 is the #1-selling 75-
watt guitar amp in the US and Spider IV 120 is the #1-selling 2x10 guitar amp in the US. Spider
IV 15 was the breakout hit – it became the #1-selling guitar amplifier in any category in the
Spider IV guitar amplifiers have many unique aspects. One of which is access to huge
collections of presets that were either dialed in by popular guitarists or inspired by them.
Celebrated bands and artists including Slipknot, Coheed & Cambria, Johnny Marr and others
handcrafted their own presets and saved them into most Spider IV amplifiers. Another is USB
connectivity via Line 6 FBV™ MkII foot controllers. This connection allows the user to edit and
organize their tones with Spider Edit software, and trade tones at CustomTone.com.
Line 6 continues to make guitar amplifiers that are as cutting edge today as the original Spider
amplifier was in 1999, and looks forward to celebrating more milestones.
