When you plug into the Line 6 Spider Valve MkII 212, you're ready to jam with practically any tone from guitar history, all with that unmistakable push-pull vibe that only a tube amp offers up. How's it work? Line 6 designed the Spider Valve MkII 212 modeling combo amp alongside renowned tube amp designer Reinhold Bogner, so you get the best of both worlds: Line 6's modeling know-how and Bogner's visionary boutique amp expertise. Explore 16 sophisticated British, American, and European amp models plus 20 essential effects — the Spider Valve MkII 212 is your versatile tone machine.
Spider Valve MkII 212 40-watt guitar amp combo is the result of a ground-breaking collaborative effort between living-legend amp designer Reinhold Bogner and renowned amp-modeling upstarts Line 6. On the heels of its celebrated predecessor, the original Spider Valve HD100 combo (the #1-selling tube 2x12 amp in America*), Spider Valve MkII 212 offers the best of both worlds: brawny, boutique-style tube tone and the latest, most advanced Line 6 amp modeling with complete flexibility and deep editing.
Build your sound from the ground up with 16 of the most advanced Line 6 amp models. Each one was inspired by a celebrated American, British and European head or combo. Get sparkling clean tones, syrupy smooth drive tones, high-gain onslaughts, mid-range tones on the verge of breakup, and more with the tonal nuances of the modeled originals.
Start smart and dive deep with the unprecedented control of Line 6 Smart FX. 20 brilliant effects deliver unprecedented color, adjustability and routing options. Dig into the Smart Harmony, Pitch Glide, the 14-second Quick Loop, and more, and route each one pre or post for an extraordinary collection of tone-shaping tools. Plus, you get every guitarist’s required palette of colors including beautiful Delays, Mods, Reverbs and more. Tweak up to 6 effect parameters; use up to 4 effects simultaneously.
The signal from the Line 6 front-end flows into the Bogner-designed 12AX7 preamp to produce creamy, cascading distortions and enriched tube harmonics. The 6L6 power tubes drive the Celestion® Vintage 30 speakers in the three-quarter closed-back cabinet to provide unprecedented sonic impact, exceptional feel and tonal richness.
Line 6 FBV Shortboard MkII foot controller pairs perfectly with Spider Valve MkII 212 to offer out-of-the-box Volume/Wah, Pitch Glide control, preset control, Quick Loop control, and more.
