Update of the original Spider head producing 150 (75/side) watts of real stereo sound. The Spider II features 12 unique amp models made from some of the true classic amps of all time, from Tweed to Blackface to Boogie tones. It also features 7 different effect types, 3 simultaneous, including Chorus/Flanger, Phaser, Tremolo, Digital Delay, Tape Echo, and Sweep Echo. All effects can be easily tweaked using Smart FX, and delay times can be adjusted using Tap Tempo. Other features include a front panel tuner, Spring or Room Reverb, and a headphone out. The delay knob gives you a trio of delay effect choices: a standard delay, tape echo, and a sweep echo. The modulation effect knob lets you choose between chorus/flange, phaser, and tremolo, and you can adjust the amount of effect you want. While turning the knob, Spider II adjusts all the individual aspects of the effect automatically to give you the range of sounds you’re looking for, without having to mess with multiple knobs and switches to get your tone. The FBV floorboard unleashes much of the amp’s versatility in live situations with switches to access any of your four presets, go up or down through the complete sound bank presets, activate effects loop, turn on chromatic tuner, and utilize the expression pedal as a wah or volume pedal, or change sweep speeds on modulation effects, delay, etc. A tap tempo button to sync your effects with the song in real time in addition to accessing Distortion Boost and a Noise Gate. It can also be used like a stomp box to turn on/off your modulation (chorus, flange, phase, etc.), delay, and reverb. Includes a long connecting cable that easily runs from the front of the stage to your backline amp. Manual is online here. If you’re tired of not being heard, and want a load of hands-free control over your tone, try 150 watts on for size. It’s not the latest generation but none of the sounds are dated and at $239 for the head and controller, it’s easy on the budge.
