"Line 6 Spider III 15"

Not the greatest amp, althought it does the job.

I was sold this when I was shown it by a sales rep in my local music store. It seemed awesome at the time I was just wowed over by the guys skill more than anything.

Anyway got it home and was pretty happy with it. For a 15W amp its LOUD, really loud for its price and size and for that I give it credit.

When I started to get a bit more into my guitar and I wanted to try get specific sounds out the amp it really didn't perform. The overdrive is reall electronic and unauthentic and the flange, phaser and tremolo effects are pretty poor. Sure it's nice for an amp this price and size to have all these effects, but they are not great.

The amp looks pretty good and is built durably I would say.

All in all its a pretty good and loud amp for its price, but don't expect anything amazing from it.
