Beef up your Spider IV 120 with 28 additional overdrives, compressors, delays, reverbs, mods, and wahs. You’ll have more effects than any other modeling amplifier!
Pitch effects (Smart Harmony and Pitch Glide)
Smart Harmony is Line 6’s first intelligent pitch shifter. It’s fast-tracking and easy to use. Harmonize using major, minor, pentatonic, whole tone, and other types of scales. (Don’t worry, you don’t need to know music theory to use Smart Harmony).
Pitch Glide is most effective when used with an FBV MkII foot controller. Use the foot pedal to smoothly shift your tone up or down to any interval within a four-octave range. The effect can be calibrated to semitones, or to 10-cent increments to create cool chorus/detuning effects.
Quick Loop is a 14-second sound-on-sound looper that’s ideal for writing songs, practicing solos, jamming, and even dialing in your tone. Easy to use, Quick Loop’s controls are all on the front panel. Connect an FBV MkII foot controller for handsfree control of the looper functions.
Use up to 8 effects at the same time! Pour on the colors and textures with all 4 Smart FX, set the adjustable Boost and the Noise Gate, activate Quick Loop, and connect an FBV MkII foot controller to kick on the volume/wah pedal. How many other amplifiers can do that?
Celestion guitar speakers are world renowned for their exceptional definition, clarity, and feel. And that’s just what they give to Line 6 Spider IV guitar amp. The 2×10" Celestion custom speakers help clean tones sparkle and sing, creamy overdrives respond to the intricacies of your picking, and searing brutal tones launch themselves from the cabinet.
Manual mode draws a more traditional amplifier experience out of Line 6 Spider IV 120. When Manual mode is activated, all front-panel knobs work independently of one another. (Out of Manual mode, choosing an amp model may adjust the settings of the other front-panel knobs.)
To get the whole story of Line 6 Spider IV 120, you need to turn one around. It features a perfectly tuned three-quarter closed-back cabinet. This provides a tight, punchy, focused response that you can’t get from an open-back guitar speaker cabinet.
You’ll always sound your best with the Line 6 Spider amp’s built-in tuner. No need for an external tuner or additional guitar cables, this invaluable tool is integrated into the amp’s front panel. Activate the tuner with the push of a button.
