Deep dive into your effects like never before! Every effect is fully adjustable up to 7 parameters deep, including routing pre- and post-amplifier. Sculpt your delays, mods, reverbs, pitch effects, and more with unparalleled control.
Line 6's first intelligent pitch shifter, Smart Harmony is 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). And then there's Pitch Glide, which 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. Calibrate the effect to semitones, or to 10-cent increments to create cool chorus/detuning effects.
The Spider IV 120 also features Quick Loop, 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 hands-free control of the looper functions.
Get simultaneous FX. Use up to 8 effects at the same time! Pour on the colors and textures with all 4 Smart FX, set the 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 deliver that?
Dialed-In Rock Star Tones and Presets
Who do you want to sound like today? Discover the tones of your heroes in Spider IV amplifiers. 50 famous guitarists and bands, including Coheed & Cambria, Johnny Marr, Slipknot, and others, hand-crafted more than 300 of their signature tones, and turned them into Spider IV presets--from sparkling cleans to effect-laden tones to saturated high-gain heaven.
Plus, get one-touch access to almost 200 tones based on the best guitar songs of all time. From the switchblade-swinging slapback of the 1950s to the high-gain distortion of the 2000s, get the tones from Master of Puppets, Back in Black, Whole Lotta Love, Daytripper, Toxicity, Purple Haze, Head Like a Hole, Smells Like Teen Spirit, Crazy Train, and more.
You'll always sound your best with the built-in chromatic tuner. No need for an external tuner or additional guitar cables, this invaluable tool is integrated into the amps front panel. Simply activate the tuner with the push of a button. Plus, two 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 Spider IV. 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 Spider IV amplifiers, you need to turn one around. All Spider IV combo amps feature a perfectly tuned three-quarter closed-back cabinet. This provides a tight, punchy, focused response that you can't get from an open-back cabinet. And a large, two-line LCD is your window into Spider IV. This is where you can deep dive into effects and adjust their parameters, scroll over 500 presets, see the tuner interface, name your user-created presets, get a visual representation of where your Smart FX knobs are set, and more.
