Not a bad little amp - for what it is. VERY handy for portable practice, just got back from 2 weeks at the beach and it served wonderfully with my BluesHawk. Also turning out to be really convenient for quiet practice at home via headphones. Batteries (6Cs) and the included AC adapter both work fine. Built in tuner is convenient, it will get you real close at least.

I REALLY wish Line 6 would put (much) less emphasis on providing "Insane Rock Star Settings" - I guess its not hard to figure out their target audience, but come on - with only 5 amp models who really needs Crunch, Metal AND Insane?!? What about Blues (or even Twang)?...a model more for British/Classic Rock? Anyway, besides Clean, and a bit of Crunch, I do appreciate the inclusion of Acoustic mode for my Martin, which was a major reason I picked this amp over other similiar battery-capable ones (the other being that it's Line 6 as is my SV112 & Pocket Pod so functionality is familiar). Hmmm...but if it is for "portable practice", with an acoustic would one bother with an amp at all? Still, the choice is there for 'normal' practice situations.

Unfortunately, the sound does suffer through headphones, and background hum/noise are especially more evident. The same headphones sound much nicer and cleaner on my PPod. However I do not get the 'ground loop noise' with my Gibsons as I typically do through my SV - which is very good.

I did not try the CD/MP3 input yet - though the idea of using this as a speaker for an IPod is cool - definitely will make use of that.

I had a Roland Micro Cube for a very shot time, and that also functioned well. The amp model choices there were much more useful (for me), and I do not recall the headphones bringing down the sound quality.

I use this amp for practice using a custom built Soloette classical (hybrid) travel guitar. I like the sound and playability of this combination better than wood guitars (even some really expensive ones!).

The built-in tuner is a huge asset, especially when doing alternate tunings (i.e. Led Zeppelin's "The Rain Song"). Tuning is fast, easy, and convenient. (Having to use a separate tuning device would be inconvenient, and the accuracy of the built-in tuner is adequate for my purposes.)

The micro spider is small (fits in standard size day packs) and light (7 pounds). It is suitable for travel and amateur performance in small venues.

While I've never needed to use batteries to power the amp, I did get battery adapters (to allow using smaller sized rechargeable batteries in lieu of larger sized batteries); this could potentially lessen the costs if batteries should prove necessary.

The MP3/CD input jack is very useful: I sometimes use the micro spider as a speaker for a SanDisk Clip Zip MP3 player. This could also be used to play duets against a CD or MP3 backing (for both performance and practice).

It would be nice if there was another guitar jack (to allow playing duets with a human). If Line 6 punted on the "metal", "crunch", and "insane" effects, and instead provided a second jack, that would make the unit more useful to me (but then again maybe those features are necessary to sell product in order to make a profit?!).

I had to experiment a bit with the dials and buttons to get exactly the sound I was looking for; now I leave the settings alone (after diagramming them in case they get inadvertently changed).

This amp is robust and has held up well since I got it; I heard about it (around 2007) before it came out (from Line 6 employees that recommended it to me). I got one very soon after they became available.

Conclusion: a good value with useful features.

The light weight and battery powered capabilities are this amp's best features. It can produce pretty good volume for such a small amp, but 6 watts and a 6.5" speaker can only push so much volume at the lower end. Lower register notes or chords on an electric guitar can easily overwhelm the amp, producing a rumbling muddy mush of sound. It has a nice range of effects, but you get far more options from a basic $50 multi-effects pedal. You can run a mike into it (you'll need a 1/4 jack or adapter), but the vocals won't be a heck of a lot louder than singing out loud without distortion. Unless the battery powered capability is crucial, I'd pass on this and get a basic 15-20 watt amp and multi-effects pedal for the same price. You'll get a much better sound.

I purchased this amp to add some sonic flavor to my series of battery operated amplifiers. I have 2 Roland products a Micro Cube and a Cube RX, 2 Vox amps a D5 and D10 repsectively. Ok so let us get started. The first thing I have to say is that off all of my "amps" this one is the one that has the most features. Pros:
The Line 6 has 5 amplifier modes or channels! You can configure all of the amp settings and then save them for recall later (just set it the way you like and and press the button for that sound until the button blinks). The sounds are pretty good too, useful. I liked the input that allows you to add an mp3 player or other audio source (1/8 stereo mini)The tuner is also nice, not too accurate, but will get you in the ball park. Headphone output / Recording direct out. Cons: The knobs feel pretty flimsy, they are however pretty protected for the most part. Should you move one up or down you will see the rest follow suit. For something so promising it is ashamed that they chose to make a price point over quality. If you are a person that takes care of things, you will have no problem with this product.
