The Line 6 Spider III 15 guitar combo amplifier is a 15 watt solid state guitar amplifier with built-in amp and effects modeling. It's a good small amplifier for a starting guitar player, and makes a great home practice amp for more experienced players. The Line 6 Spider III is a superb amp for it's price. It is a 4 channel amp with 6 effects (up to 2 at a time). It has a headphone jack and a CD/MP3 input so you can play along with your music. This amp is pretty sturdy so it won't break easily. There is 4 choices of sound clean, crunch, metal and insane. On the downside though this amp needs to be up quite loud to get the right tones. I am using an Epiphone Les Paul 100 with stock pickups. It fits perfectly with my style of music. This little 15w amp can get extremely noisy when on full, but choose the wrong settings and a lot of feedback comes in. The amp can make pretty decent sound when you have the tremolo and phaser on creates a futuristic kind of sound. Sometimes if there's too much treble/bass or mids the distortion kind of takes over the amp. The clean at high volumes doesn't distort but when you turn the amp off and on the clean has a phaser effect on it which can be annoying at times.
