Spider Valve - Hidden Uni-Vibe revealed - MP3 example... 20-02-2008

In addition to the revealing of the hidden Uni-Vibe smart control option and the email requests asa result of it we've put together a quick MP3 sample of what to expect. We've grabbed our Spider Valve and an Old Ibanez, Fired up Gearbox, disabled all amp and effect setti ngs and started RiffWorks Standard. Connected the XLR Direct Out from the Spider Valve to our TonePort UX2 and started to record.

First part you'll hear is a chord being played on the phaser setting while it rings on we're turning the phaser right up to the end, you notice the sound structure changing to the pulsating Uni-Vibe setting. After that you'll hear some different settings we've tried to get you an audio example. At the end we played some rythm chords with a faster setting.

Spider Valve - Hidden Uni-Vibe effect revealed... 19-02-2008

On the Spider Valve series of amps there are four modulation effects displayed, but there's a hidden one also. Not many people are aware this bonus feature and Vettaville.nl is there to enhance your Line 6 user experience, so here you go.

Initially the Uni-Vibe effect was an effect that was intended to be in the Spider II series, however it didn't get in there. With the new Spider III series amps this effect has been hidden for all users to discover as a free bonus, since they launched at the end of 2006. The new Spider Valve has this feature enabled also and can be activated by following these guidelines.

The Uni-Vibe can be found in the smartcontrols at the very end of the Phaser setting. Here's how to achieve it:

  • Plug in your guitar and turn on your Spider Valve amp,
  • Dial in an amp and turn off the delay. Don't worry you can use the delay together with the modulation effect if you wish and add it at a later time if you desire. It's just to let your hear the hidden effect more clearly for the first time.
  • Hit a chord and let it ring.
  • Turn your phaser effect on and turn it up to just before the tremelo setting. It's a "hairy" setting but it's there, you'll notice the sound structure changing from a phaser structure to that unique pulsating Uni-Vibe vibe. 

As a general advice; You may want to try some different settings, save them and compare them before you'll get 'your' Uni-Vibe sound. When you've found your setting you can copy it to the location you want it stored and adjust the different parameters of the amp, delay en reverb settings. Have fun experimenting.

Thanks go out to Line 6 for bringing more than meets the eye..

Spider Valve - MP3 clip - Model Impressions... 17-10-2007

 

Spider Valve

There have a lot of requests for clips of the Spider Valve amp. And we are lucky that Ed Degenaro a professional player has made a quick clip that shows how versatile this amp is. We hosted that yesterday. As a result there have been requests to hear the same mp3 withour reverb added. Well here it is.

He's just spinning through the amp models while riffing and meanwhile quickly making this clip of the Spider Valve. All effects are bypassed (no reverb or eq in the the recording software, just the amp). He cycled around all the models left the eq alone. He dialed in the presence knob a bit higher then he'd use at a normal setting.. Guitar was a Vigier BBF model, recorded with a 609 microphone.

Thanks go out once again to Ed DeGenaro for granting Vettaville.nl the use of the clip. You can find his website here

Spider Valve - Review part 1... 13-10-2007

 

Spider Valve

Spider Valve 112 – Impressions Summit…

Got my Spider Valve 112 delivered Thursday afternoon. My wife phoned me at work I wanted to stop working, go and take it for a spin. As a sidestep a funny thing that occurred to me while writing these first lines of this impression report is the phrase “taking it for a spin” In different languages, words can have different meanings and since my native language is Dutch. Spin actually means Spider in Dutch, go figure…

While completing the whole workday I constantly thought and wondered about the Spider Valve, how it would sound and feel. Luckily it was rehearsal night with the band I play in so I had the time to take it out and play it the same day. Coming home I couldn’t wait to open the box and see it, power it up and play it.

 

The Looks and Smell
First thing you’ll see is the looks of course, it sturdy, well build impression is what you get out of it. The leather hand strap is a nice touch and gives it a leathery smell. I know you don’t judge the amp by the smell, but it struck me as nice and quality. The navigation button looks at bit strange and seems a bit odd. I know how it works since a similar type of button (but far more smaller) is also present on my Pocket POD.

The different knobs all turn quickly and smooth, without ‘clicks’ so you can set it to everywhere in between without a problem it seems. The Bogner logo is nicely placed and isn’t too obvious when you first see the amp. The power cord is there, to be certain I checked if it had the right voltage displayed on the back of the amp. But wait a minute, there are some real valves in here, I can see two Sovtek valves and two smaller ones that I can’t make out directly but there sure in there.

There’s a power amp in and a power amp out connector as well so I can use different gear with this amp. I can try PODxt in the loop perhaps. I try that, maybe not tonight but surely soon. Now where’s my guitar..

Spider Valve 112

Plug in but warn the neighbors first
I recently bought an OLP Lukather that I really dig, yeah I know it’s a cheap copy of the real deal but I really liked it from the moment I picked it up at my local dealer. The V shaped neck feels very comfortable and it’ll get me from stratlike clean to a darker grainy tone. Turned on the power so the amp will warm up and it’s still on standby, the little switch hasn’t been flipped yet…

Got my cable out, plugged it in turned down the master volume to 7 o’clock or so and flipped the standby switch… I’ve read some reviews online from the lucky people who already played one and they all said this Spider Valve is loud. I can tell you it’s Freakin’ Loud. I had connected the FBV short board and quickly turned the volume pedal up to bring the volume down. If you’re in a fight with your neighbors this is a nice amp to throw at them. But if your relationship with them is good, be sure to turn down the volume when firing it up.


Spider Valve 112

Presets and Volume
This combination of modeling and real valves has different advantages over a ‘normal’ valve amp. You can actually play it a low volumes without real loss of tone. Sure it’ll alter the tone a bit and it doesn’t have that Fletcher Munson correction like it does on my Vetta but I think it would be very difficult to get there tones at this low volume from a ‘pure’ valve amp. I must say this didn’t occur to me at first since I’m playing modeling amps for the last couple of years.

Maybe another part to consider if you would try this amp in a music store is that all presets have their own ‘stored’ volume, meaning there are some variations that might surprise and / or scare you. As many different guitarist have different tastes, playing techniques and guitars were they’ll make there own presets with they vary in some I like and dislike as I guess it will for the next player.

Spider Valve - Review part 2... 13-10-2007

 

Spider Valve

Cleaning it up..
Since I’ve got just a half an hour to check before rehearsal I just turn it the first clean channel and see what it’ll bring out for me. Mm nice clean and rather warm tone and while even turning up the drive knob it stays clean but adds some slight edgy, not sharp sound to it. I doesn’t get gritty or dirty. The complete bass, mid, treble and channel volume seem to be a part of this amp model and reminds me to try this later to see if each separate model have different tonal ranges for each model

OLP pickup to neck position, tone knob turning down et voila we can a jazz chord or two, like to try this later with my Variax to see if an even more ‘wooden’ tone will bring out a different flavor..
I’m picking the Blue clean channel and put the tone knob all the way up on my guitar, select the neck and neck pickup position and straight stratlike tones, a quick flip on the different pickups gives a directly different sound to all the different pickups used . With this amp you’ll hear every nuance. Looking at the time, a must hurry to get to practice and go on from there. Quickly cleaning the room from the packaging material and off to a bigger room and space to take it for a “spin”..

Spider Valve 112

Can you hear me?
Driving fast to the rehearsal room, it’s an cooperate building with concrete, has some industrial racks with stuff they sell in them and it large, like always we have enough ‘hall’ to do without reverb and still drown in it, but hey it’s free for us and we’ve come to get used to it.
At rehearsal I use my POD XT mounted in my Atomic 18 Watt and I really like that amp, even over the 50 Watt Atomic, that I’ve played in the past. The 18 watt version is more warm and spongy to me then the 50 Watt.

How will the Spider Valve 112 hold up when playing with a full 6 musicians band, can they all hear me, is there a distinct tone pushing through? My fellow musicians gather around and are asking questions regarding the amp. One thing that always strikes me is that modeling itself is somewhat hard to grasp for non-modeling users as to what it enables you to do.

10 o’clock already?
Now I guess I can turn the master volume up to ten o’clock to fill this ‘industrial estate’ with some boutique tone. Set it to a preset on 4A, pickup to mid position and strike a chord. WHOAA, FBV short board volume pedal where are you? Get that volume down, back to the amp, master volume to nine o’clock is more then enough..

Spider Valve 112

There’s also a very nice smile on my face, this amp is loud, warm, direct, distinct on this preset. We’re rehearsing a song and ooh, ooh it’s lead time, switching to 4D “rock solo”, switching to the humbucker bridge position and what a pleasant surprise. I’m singing with my guitar tone, it’s not piercing, it’s full, bright, musical tone. I’m digging this Spider Valve at this very moment it enables me to shine and speak through my instrument. This is a piece of gear that makes me want to play even more and longer.

While my playing at hhpme at low level was nice, the amp shines even more when played at gig levels, there's always the volume issue and the changes to some tonal character but the overal tone seems to gain more punch and clarity when cranked up to higher levels..

Another go on the same song, now I know the differences in volume between the presets and what patches to pick. I don’t know what amp models these are (and don’t really care at the moment) but they fit nicely in this song, we are playing with three different guitarists at the moment one with a Fender strat and 212 Kustom amp, one with a telecopy and a small combo and myself with earlier mentioned OLP and Spider Valve, so we have plenty of guitar tones. During song parts I roll back the volume knob om my guitar and the tone cleans up a little, but keeps it’s dirty character.

Spider Valve - Review part 4... 13-10-2007

 

Spider Valve

Spinnin’ Spider
Well back to work the next day and at the end of the day back to a different room, some 40 m2 damped room, same guitar, some player, same amp. Knowing what I learned from it yesterday I was anxious to play it again and wondering how it would sound in a damped environment. Starting from scratch and taking a bit more time to learn about the different amp models and what’s the easiest way to get a good tone?

Spending some more time with the Spinnin’ Spider it struck me how easy it is to get a nice tone, I even was checking an amp model (don’t remember which one) with the bass all the way up, mid down, and treble up and other ways around and it still wasn’t harsh or boomy, nice!
On some amp models the low end comes up when you’ve almost reached the end of the dial then it feels like you’re using a 2x12 inch cabinet. Since I really like a 212 cabinet and tend towards them I so far haven’t ‘missed’ the second 12 inch speaker. I haven’t heard the Spider Valve 212 either so I can’t compare those, it’s just an impression while writing about it.

Hairy Scary moments
If and when you’re taking this amp for your own “spin” check how different the bass, mid or treble response is for each amp model when you turn them up or down and how they interact. It’ll give a quick clue or direction to what tones are possible with the selected amp model at hand.

I mentioned earlier the “hair trigger” master volume, since today I’m in a totally different room, I can also try if the hairy trigger does that all the way. Now where’s my ear protection..
While turning the master volume up, every little tweak makes it distinctly louder, it’s staggering that way until around the 12 o’clock position, after that the ‘hairy trigger’ movement has less a more ‘finger trigger’ steps. Just to protect my ears it’s going back to the 8:30 position.

When selecting the higher gain models and drive knob turned up, there's noise noticable, allthough not visible from the amp itself there is a noise reduction feature. To activate it you press and hold the tapbutton as you turn the Reverb knob up past twelve o’clock, and you turn on a built-in Noise Gate, which helps to cut down on hiss and noise. When activated you'll see the channel D Light comes on to indicate that the Gate is turned on.

Dial in & Dig(g)in
Search for a tone from the different presets is a way to go but so far I’m more comfortable with bypassing the effects, selecting an amp model, choose the right amount of drive, color the tone with some bass, middle, treble knobs and a tiny bit of reverb and I’m done. This is Dial it in and Dig in amp. No real tweaking like the Vetta series, just twist ‘n turn some knobs and I was set.

I will have to play the amp with different guitars to see how it reacts to it, but this amp is dynamic, responsive, clarity and a its own Valve Vibe.

Speaking of Dial in or dialin' in presets there's an odd thing that I noticed and it's something that you'll only see if and when you have a FBV Shortboard connected. When you connect an FBV SB you'll notice that some presets have the loop engaged, so it seems at least at first glance. This would lead to assume to the 'patchmaker(s)' used some outboard gear through the FX loop that influences that sound on the selected preset. However the loopbutton on the FBV (when used with Spider Valve) (de-)activates the noise gate..

Spider Valve 112

Power to the POD
I have the Atomic 18 watt with my PODxt docked inside, used it every week. I've tried the 50 Watt Atomic (some months back) but found it to be less warmer (different tubes). Yesterday For a  10 minutes impression, took my PODxt and plugged it into the poweramp of the Spider Valve. Although recalling from memory how the Atomic 50 Watt sounds I’d say Spider Valve has more warmth to the overall sound.

I tried the direct setting inside to PODxt and switched to power amp that made a world of difference. Downside, you need to figure out what EQ settings you need to dial in for use with the Spider Valve..., this combination of probably every modeler or POD (X)(T)(3) series will get Bogner powered. The reason behind it is the clever design of the circuit.

Spider Valve Signalflow - Vettaville.nl

Here’s why: The moment you use the power amp in, the Line 6 modeling is bypassed, so it’s just the Bogner designed power amp that you play and you’re not taking the modeling on modeling route

Haven’t had time to just try the effects from PODxt in front of the Spider Valve or just a normal stomp box to experience how well that works, but my guess is that it will.

Spider Valve - Review part 5... 13-10-2007

 

Spider Valve

More to come on the impressions summit
How to define a sound in words, I think it’s rather impossible to describe how something sounds that way. We all have different hearing, we have different playing techniques, we like different tones. It’s a very nice decade that we live in since we, as musicians, have more options then ever before to choose from. As you can imagine it’s too short a time to get to know this amp and give a full review.

Spider Valve 112

I’ll spend more time with it because this Spider Valve has 12 different amp models to get acquainted to, this is not your average 2 channel amplifier, it’s more like a 12 channel amp, with all different characters that go from clean to rage, each in their own way on almost each model. Sure you can hear the Fender, Vox, Marshall, Mesa Boogie heritage where the amp models are based on but also have their own unique sound.

Judgment day
The amp as a whole is very dynamic and responsive with a rich harmonics and feel. It’s well build and has it’s own character, here in Holland a Spider Valve will drain € 699,- from the bank account. So far I didn’t come across a 40 Watt Valve amp with such a variety of sounds ease of use and tonal quality. To me Line 6 sets a new standard in the price versus quality ratio this Spider Valve amp.

Spider Valve 112

So there’s more to come and I’ll gather my further impressions. So far I’ll say this is a very, very nice amp with minor onboard chorus, flanger, phaser effects. Maybe I’m spoiled with my Vetta where I can tweak almost every parameter..

It’s freaking loud, has it’s own amp models with different tone colors and interactions of the tone controls. But maybe most of all, this amp sings and breathes the passion for music. The best advice is I can give you is your own judgment..

Spider Valve - First Impression of a Beta Model... 13-09-2007

 

Spider Valve

Yesterday a music store had a demo of a beta model version of the new Spider Valve amp in their store. Thanks to Robert Williams we've got some extra pictures that he took from his cellphone and here's his first impression.. Please note this is his personal impression..

"First impression is that a lot of the digital hash I hear in most Line 6 products is not there and the dynamics that we all want out of a tube amp are within reach. You can actually plug into the return on the power amp and get a really useful tone... Looks like casters are standard. V30 is standard, Bogner designed the cab.

Effects... seem to shift from pre to post depending on the model. I heard Chorus, Delay and Verb, don't know which models. There's a cool effects defeat on power up, you do however have to "wake up" tone controls when you go from model to model. Your presets automatically reset all controls.

Twelve models, I didn't get a chance to go through the manual and see all but there are the usual suspects. One standout was a blues model with shades of JTM, Supro and Bassman. Combos are expected to ship end of the month, head and 4x12 in November.

Got a chance to play it and it's got some mojo. Nice feel, not too much sag, LOTS of volume. Should keep up with most drummers. The effects are somewhat limited but I have to remember it's a Spider not a POD or Vetta. I don't know the level settings on the FX loop but I'd likely run something to supplement. And as nice as the V30 is, it's not for me and I'll change it out immediately. (Yes I'm buying one):-)"

Spider Valve – This is a Real Tube Amp
The signal flow of the Spider Valve 112 and 212:

Spider Valve Signalflow - Vettaville.nl


As you can see, Spider Valve consists of a complete Class AB tube amplifier fed by a digital front end, which houses all the magic of our amp and effect models. Make no mistake; these are not “marketing tubes”. This is a real tube amp. 12AX7 pre-amp tubes, which are always working to provide the harmonic richness and compression of a great vintage tube amp, drive the phase splitter and 5881 power amp complement.
Spider Valve truly offers the “best of both worlds” — affording you a tremendous range of Line 6 tone and effects with the vibe and stage-proven performance of a world class tube amp.

Spider Valve - Press Release... 28-08-2007

 

Spider Valve

LINE 6 AND BOGNER FUSE MODELLING FLEXIBILITY WITH TUBE AMP PEFORMANCE: INTRODUCING SPIDER VALVE 

Calabasas, CA - Line 6, Inc., creators of the award-winning POD®, Spider™ III, Variax® and Vetta™ series of modelling devices, guitars and amps, are very pleased to announce their new line of Spider Valve™ tube-based amplifiers, the result of their breakthrough collaboration with tube amp titan Reinhold Bogner.

Just as Line 6 revolutionised the world of amps through their pioneering amp and effect technology, they now expand and explode the possibilities of tube amp performance by applying that same tonal range and superior fidelity to Bogner’s all-tube power amp design, audiophile component selection and stellar voicing.

Let there be no mistake: Spider Valve is not one of those so-called “hybrid” amps that talk “tube” but don’t deliver the guts or glory onstage. The performance, response and feel delivered by the matched Spider Valve 6L6 power tubes, 12AX7 preamp tubes and premium Celestion® Vintage 30 speakers - combined with twelve Line 6 amp models and seven SmartControl effects - displays all the gorgeous cascading distortion and enriched harmonics that tube enthusiasts demand, brilliantly allied with the state-of-the-art Line 6 modelling mojo essential to today’s working players.

You wouldn’t expect anything less from a partnership between Line 6 and Reinhold Bogner, the legendary German amp guru whose coveted all-tube Bogner combos and heads are holy grails for legions of discerning pros. In deep collaboration with Line 6, Bogner applied his mastery and craftsmanship to virtually every aspect of the Spider Valve design and construction, from mapping the signal path and voicing the speakers right down to specifying bolts and washers.

“Professional guitarists have asked us for an amp that combines the sonic versatility of Line 6 modelling with the power and performance that a well-crafted tube amp delivers on stage,” says Marcus Ryle, Line 6 Cofounder and Senior VP of Research and Development, “With Reinhold Bogner we found the ideal design partner to create this ‘best of both worlds’. We are truly honoured by his collaboration, craftsmanship and what we have been able to achieve together with Spider Valve.”

Spider Valve amps will be available in three versions. The Spider 112 pairs a 40W Class AB tube amp with two 12AX7 preamp tubes, two 6L6 power tubes and a single 12” Celestion Vintage 30 speaker. The Spider Valve 212 features the same power amp and tube array as the 112, but with two Celestion Vintage 30s. The Spider Valve HD-100 packs two 12AX7 preamp tubes, four 6L6 power tubes and 100 watts into a stylish head with matching 4x12 cabinets, loaded with Celestion Vintage 30s. Each model features 12 channels of modelling, as well as modulation, delay and reverb effects, programmable presets, on-board tuner, tap-tempo, noise gate and many other extra features.

Spider Valve

We've purchased our copy of a Guitar Magazine and behold, there's info on Rheinhold.. Inside there's an interview with Darrell Smith and Steve de Furia from Line 6 talking about the new Spider Valve series and the cooperation with Rheinhold Bogner. Based on the info..

  • Development took more then a year
  • Line 6 is trying to bring their modeling technology to Valve amps
  • Basis is Spider III but all models are new
  • Line 6 is being avasive on what amps they specifically modeled for Spider Valve..
  • Spider Valve's frontend is completly Line 6 up to the point in the circuit where there are dual cascading preamp valves, and from there on it's all valve..
  • Line 6 says: "It's like having a 12 channel valve amp but with fewer valves."
