Line 6 Spider Classic 15 Modeling Amp

This amp represents amazing value.

Modeling amps like this one are a bit different to your ordinary amp. They use the latest technology to simulate the sounds of other amps. Whilst some purists claim that they can never reach the gloriously analog sounds of traditional amps, in recent years this is becoming less and less true.

And of course, the huge advantage of modeling amps is that there are so many tone options to choose from that you may never need another amp. This is especially important for beginners, because if you are not sure which musical direction you are going to take, and want to try out a few different styles, this amp will do anything you want it to.

PROS
  • Exploring all those different tones is really fun in itself, and can be a real joy if you are a beginner. Even if you are not yet very good, being able to play in blues, jazz, or rock tones can really increase your motivation.
  • At 15 watts, this is not the most powerful amp we are reviewing today, but it more than makes up for this in sound quality. In truth, most beginners will never reach the volume limit of an amp like this, and investing in a 300 W monster of an amp is pointless if you are just starting out.
  • The connections between this amp and your computer is intuitive, and really adds value to it. You can easily record directly from the amp, and add even more effects in production, meaning that you will be recording your own creations within weeks of starting out.
  • The amp, for all the multitude of options it offers, is actually really easy to use. If you just want to focus on playing for a bit, without messing around with amp models, reverb, and tremolo, you can.
CONS
  • Very few. With an essentially unlimited range of effects, this amp offers the best value of the amps for beginners we are reviewing today.
