    Bogner/Line 6 all tube amp with modeling also.......Whuuuut?!!

    Line 6 - Spider Valve Recording Artists trying it out!! Click on the 100HD for the really good vids
    Line 6 - Spider Valve interviews

    100watt all tube Bogner/Line 6 head is only $799 while the price lasts! (no F'ng Way!)
    40watt 1-12 (greenback) $699
    50watt 2-12 (greenbacks) $829

    Look out its like a Mesa Boogie, Fender, Marshall Plexi, Bogner with Podxt built in.
    The modeling is post tube preamp so the modeling is mainly the effects

    Amp modeling and digital effects in a classic tube amp.
    The Spider Valve amp head delivers 12 channels of amp modeling - combined with several flavors of built-in modulation, delay and reverb driven by an all tube, all Bogner amplification design boasting 6L6 power tubes, 12AX7 preamp tubes and premium Celestion® Vintage 30 speakers.

    Spider Valve™ is the result of a groundbreaking collaboration between Line 6 and Reinhold Bogner fusing the versatility of modeling with the performance and feel of a world-class tube amplifier.

    Just as Line 6 revolutionized the world of amps through pioneering modeling technology, Spider Valve shatters the boundaries of tube amp performance by applying that same tonal range to Bogner's all-tube amp design, boutique component selection and stellar voicing.

    Combining the performance, response and feel of a well crafted tube amp with the inspiring capabilities of amp and effect modeling - the Spider Valve amplifier delivers the best of both worlds.

    Modeling + Tubes
    The Spider Valve design combines 12AX7 preamp tubes with Line 6's signature modeling front-end, a marriage that allows each part of the sonic equation to deliver what it does best: creamy, cascading distortion and enriched harmonics from the tubes, and 12 of the world's finest amp models and seven stunning effects from the modeling front end. And, of course, perfectly matched 6L6 power tubes driving Celestion® Vintage 30 speakers to deliver unprecedented sonic impact and spatial imaging.

    With the simple front-end controls and display, programmable patches and presets are instantly within reach. Tweak your tone even further with the front panel Presence, Drive, Bass, Mid and Treble controls: this is a true-blue tube amp, and it acts like one, responding and delivering all the analog detail, performance and warmth of every amp model and effect.

    Unleash your effects arsenal.
    From the DL4™ stompbox to the Echo Farm™ plug-in, Line 6 effects have achieved cult status in top studios and stage rigs of discerning guitarists. With Spider Valve, Line 6 delivers a palette of top grade integrated effects - easily accessed and tweaked from the front panel using the SmartControl FX knobs.

    Modulation
    A choice of phaser, chorus or tremolo lets you tweak your tone from rich luscious modulations to dramatic orbital gyrations.

    Delay
    From the swirling feedback of the sweep echo to the organic decay of the tape echo, Spider Valve delays provide an unmatched level of dimension and depth.

    Reverb
    The Spider Valve effects arsenal is complete with a dedicated reverb control allowing you to dial in anything from subtle ambiences to cavernous spaces.

    The Bogner Story
    Reinhold Bogner, the principal designer at Bogner Amplification, had been designing and building amplifiers long before leaving Germany in 1989. Moving to Los Angeles he quickly gained the trust of many influential players including Steve Stevens, Dan Huff, Allan Holdsworth, Mike Landau and Steve Vai who sought out his skill at modifying and custom building their amps.

    But it was overhauling and revitalizing Eddie Van Halen's legendary 1968 Marshall® Plexi in 1992 that propelled Bogner to legendary status and inspired him to launch his own high-end amp company, Bogner Amplification. Acclaimed for their rich, robust tones, channel-switching sophistication and sonic versatility - Bogner amps have earned a maniacally devoted following among discerning guitarists such as Jerry Cantrell, Lyle Workman, Wes Borland, Chris DeGarmo, Keith Urban, Richie Sambora and many others.

    Using only premium components - in tandem with a level of craftsmanship that can only be referred to as "artistry"- Bogner amplifiers more than deserve their exalted reputation. Ever the restless creator, Bogner brought those same priorities, standards and sensibilities to bear on the Spider Valve design. Each Spider Valve amp the 112, 212 and HD100 combines the talent and experience of Bogner, arguably the tube world's leading light, with the know-how and technological savvy of the world's leader in modeling, Line 6.

    I played the 40 watt 1x12, and it smoked. My next amp purchase may have to be that little badboy.

    I've herd mixed things about them. I really was interested in trying one out, but I've in addition to some of the good things, I've herd they are basically spider III amps and models with actually tubes and suffer from the same buzzy, fuzzy, microchip sounding distortions. I've liked line 6 stuff I've herd with direct recording but I have yet to hear a combo flextone, spider or otherwise that sounded good. No one local has them, I haven't tried on yet.

    I thought they just came out

    We have a Line-6 dealer in Chico guess
    ill just have to check it out in person.

    According to the basic schematic, looks like you go into the line six
    then has a digital to Analog converter, and that signal goes into the
    12AX7's and 6L6's, which is kind of like pluging a Podxt into a bogner,
    but there is dry amp settings to
    "Scratches head and thinks.........hmmmm"

    So like putting a distortion box in front of a tube amp, or what? I liked the one I tried quite a bit.

    I guess thats the gist,


    from the videos i seen, the tone was really incredible and

    I tried one, I wish they would make one with the Vetta front end. One problem is it really doesn't sound all that good at low volumes, if you get it pushing some air then the power section starts working and it sounds better. I just wasn't wild about the limited selections for overdrive, though I could get some sounds I could live with out of it. I'm not sure what to make of it, really.

    I would bet, knowing line6, the factory presets suck but can be tweaked to sound good.
    I hated the factory presets in my POD XT Pro and my Vetta, a little tweaking to the patches can make them sound good though once you know what you are doing.

    Yea, the downloadble users settings are alot better, but the best
    way is tweaking them yourself, you always have to increase the
    channel volume each time so it will kick in, at least on mine its
    that way. I always make sure to save them all on computer incase
    i loose them on the pod.
