FLUFF Records Metal Tones with a Line 6 Spider IV

They said it couldn’t be done – actually more like Glenn said it shouldn’t be done – but folks like Fluff hear that kind of sentiment and take it as a challenge. Four hours of testing out mics and signal paths later, he had managed to do the impossible – make this tiny practice amp sound pretty good in a metal mix.


It’s not going to replace your AxeFx or KSR amp, but it’s good to know that it can be done.

As Editor-in-Chief of Gear Gods, I've been feeding your sick instrument fetishism and trying unsuccessfully to hide my own since 2013. I studied music on both coasts (Berklee and SSU) and now I'm just trying to put my degree to some use. That's a music degree, not an English one. I'm sure you noticed.

  • You know, Line 6 gets a lot of shit from people, but I don’t see it impacting these guys at all.

    I guess on a site called Gear Gods you have to expect this sort of thing, but the only people who are going to hear a difference are other guitar players. Stop perpetuating the idea that you have to spend thousands of dollars to get a good tone.

    • I see the point you’re making, but I doubt you’ll find any Line6 in either guy’s backline. Bottom line…..if it’s what you can afford, you use it. If you can afford better gear, you use better gear.

      • This is something really interesting that is worth paying your attention right now,a superb online opportunity to work for those people who want to use their free time so that they can make some extra money using their computers… I have been working on this for last two and half years and I am earning 60-90 dollar/ hour … In the past week I have earned 13,70 dollars for almost 20 hours sitting ….

        Specific qualification, degree or skills is not necessary for this, just keyboard typing and a good working and reliable internet connection ….
