Spider Valve MkII amplifiers are the result of a groundbreaking collaboration between Line 6 and Reinhold Bogner. Boutique-style amp designs combine with the most advanced Line 6 amp modeling to deliver muscular tube tone and unsurpassed sonic flexibility. The amp and effect modeling flows into the Bogner-designed 12AX7 preamp and 6L6 power amp, and the result is a guitar-playing experience unlike any other.
Does lugging a lot of gear really build character? Spider Valve MkII amplifiers are the sole solution for working guitarists. Each amp features killer front-end flexibility (industry-standard amp and effect models, full editability, 128 user presets), to match Bogner's back-end brawn (all-tube design, muscular tone, boutique-style response), all under one roof.
Celestion guitar speakers provide world-renowned definition, clarity, and feel. Premium 12" Celestion® Vintage 30 speakers help Spider Valve MkII clean tones sparkle and sing, creamy overdrives respond to the intricacies of your picking, and searing high-gain tones launch themselves from the cabinet.
Blizzard of Ahhs.
A blizzard of artists, producers, engineers, and sound designers spent countless hours creating, comparing, and tuning every last Spider Valve MkII amp model. The result is 16 of the most advanced Line 6 amp models to date. These exceptional models deliver the distinct tonal nuances of celebrated American, British and European guitar amps. They exhibit sophisticated touch response, complex distortions and extraordinary flexibility. Cook them all at lethal voltages in the Bogner-designed preamp and power amp for a jaw-dropping guitar-playing experience.
Manual mode draws a more traditional amplifier experience out of Spider Valve MkII. 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.)

Inspired by* some aspects of a Hiwatt® Custom 100, Clean Blue emulates the classic clean tones of the late 60s/early 70s. This model is full-bodied with a creamy mid-range and a tight low-end.
Twang Amber is inspired by* the sound of a 60s Fender® Blackface Twin Reverb® to produce a classic Nashville spank. Crank the Drive knob for some extra grit and growl!
More aggressive than Twang Amber, Twang Blue has plenty of cut, punch and attitude inspired by* a 60s Fender® Blackface Deluxe Reverb®.
NEW! Class A Amber
Brilliant, singing tones with an addictive chime made famous by generations of Brit-rockers, Class A Amber is inspired by* a Vox® AC30 Top Boost.
NEW! Class A Blue
Terrifically dynamic, Class A Blue offers boutique-style feel inspired by* some of our favorite amps including the Divided by 13 9/15. Sweet tones on the edge of breaking up give way to seriously throaty Overdrive when the Drive knob is cranked.
The vintage charm of Blues Amber is inspired by* the classic tones of a '50s wide panel Fender® Deluxe Reverb®.
NEW! Blues Blue
Voiced with more attitude than Blues Amber, Blues Blue delivers a more forward mid-range for a classic rockabilly sound inspired by* the bite of a pint-sized Gretsch® 6156.
A celebration of the tone used by numerous early metal bands, Crunch Amber was inspired by* the signature crunch of a '68 Marshall® Plexi 50-Watt.
NEW! Crunch Blue
Crunch Blue provides a rounded off British-style distortion with a cool mid-honk and great cut. Inspired by* the killer crunch of an Orange® AD30.
Hi Gain Amber

A modern, scooped metal sound, Hi Gain Blue is a refined distortion inspired by* the high-gain mayhem of a Diezel® Herbert.
A one-way ticket to high-gain heaven, Metal Amber is tight, punchy and inspired by* the high-gain tone of a Mesa/Boogie® Dual Rectifier®.
Metal Blue delivers high-gain aggression with supreme versatility. Sweep the Mid knob to control the character of the distortion! (Set it to minimum for fuzz pedal characteristics; set it to noon for creamy, modern high-gain tones; set it to max to conjure Class A tones.)
Dialed in for shredding, Insane Amber combines the intensity and impact of Metal Blue but it delivers more mid-range teeth for that bone-crushing grind. Inspired by* the tone of a Mesa/Boogie® Dual Rectifier® (red channel).
Insane Blue delivers an obscene helping of distortion while still retaining tonal definition and character. As much input gain distortion as possible short of a complete meltdown!
