New 240-watt guitar amp head offers unique built-in speaker configuration for both practice use and pairing with a cabinet for on-stage performances.
ANAHEIM, Calif.—January 19, 2017—Line 6, Inc. today introduced the Spider® V 240HC guitar head & combo amp, a powerful addition to the Spider V family. It is the first guitar amp head in the world to include an integrated full-range stereo speaker system, enabling it to work stand-alone as a 50-watt practice combo amp or acoustic guitar amp. When connected to the Spider 412 cabinet, Spider V 240HC creates a 240-watt stereo half stack with pristine full-range stereo sound and plenty of power for the stage for all types of guitars. Like other members of the Spider V family, it also features a comprehensive collection of amps, cabs and effects models, as well as a built-in Relay® G10 wireless receiver.
For almost 20 years, Spider amps have offered guitarists massive tonal options and groundbreaking features that push the bounds of technology
said Marcus Ryle, President, Line 6.
“Spider V 240HC continues that legacy of innovation and gives performing guitarists the power and flexibility to play loud on stage or practice more quietly at home, without compromising their tone.”
The unique built-in stereo speaker system delivers unmatched versatility. Paired with a 4×12 speaker cabinet, the built-in speakers provide stereo high frequency precision in a massive full-range stage rig. When the gig or rehearsal is over the guitarist can simply unplug the head, take it home and use it stand alone as a recording interface, practice amp or even acoustic guitar amp. Tones created at home naturally translate to the stage. Guitarists can even play back their favorite music through the amp thanks to its full-range stereo speakers. Spider V is also the first amp head to offer a built-in wireless receiver. With the simple addition of a Relay G10T transmitter, guitarists can experience total wireless freedom on stage.
Spider V 240HC is packed with a massive collection of tones, including 200 amps, cabs and effects, over 100 handcrafted presets based on legendary studio setups and artist tones and over ten thousand tones in the cloud via the free Spider V Remote mobile app for iOS and Android™. An intuitive editing interface makes it fast and easy to dial in great tones, with deep editing functionality and control for creating highly customized sounds.
Combining the built-in stereo speaker system with the Spider 412 cabinet creates a powerful stage amp with plenty of power for any performance scenario. The full-range speaker system delivers outstanding sound quality and amazing versatility, and sounds great with both electric and acoustic guitars. The newly updated Spider 412 cabinet is aesthetically matched and optimized for the Spider V 240HC head, but the head will also work with most standard extension cabs.
Spider V 240HC is compatible with the new FBVTM 3 foot controller, allowing full color-coded control of presets, effect bypass, volume/wah and the built-in looper.
Spider V 240HC comes with access to a free download of Cubase® LE music recording software. A USB connection enables guitarists to connect to a computer, tablet or smart phone and record guitar tracks into any recording app, without the need for any additional gear.
