Line 6 Announces Spider V 20 MkII Guitar Practice Amplifier
CALABASAS, Calif. — October 1, 2019 — Line 6 today introduced the Spider® V 20 MkII amplifier for practicing guitarists. Whether just starting their guitar journey, or seasoned professionals, guitarists want the same things from a practice amp: authentic amp tones, no-hassle operation, and inspiring presets that make practicing fun. Spider V 20 MkII has them all covered.
Designed to sound great right out of the box, the Spider V 20 MkII amp features an intuitive interface with color-coded controls and dedicated front-panel buttons that make it easy to plug in and begin practicing. Sixteen new tonally diverse presets deliver sounds with all the character and vibe players demand, while the new Classic Speaker mode provides an exceptionally organic feel. Each preset contains three effects that can be switched in and out stompbox-style using the dedicated FX buttons on the front panel.
“The new line of Spider V MkII amplifiers have been meticulously designed to deliver outstanding tones and provide countless hours of smiles and satisfaction,” said Adrian Haselhuber, Director of Product Management, Line 6. “And the Spider V 20 MkII has much in common with its larger siblings in the series, including entirely new presets and some nice cosmetic touches.”
Spider V 20 MkII also includes specific features that make practicing easier and more fun. A dedicated Reverb control adds atmosphere and depth, while a Tap/Tuner button enables guitarists to tap in delay times and modulation rates to match songs they are playing along with. Guitarists can also hold the Tap/Tuner button to access the onboard tuner and quickly tune their instrument.
Standing less than a foot tall and weighing only 11 pounds (5 kg), Spider V 20 MkII is the ideal practice amp for guitarists on the go. But despite its small size, Spider V 20 MkII delivers 20 watts of power through a custom 8″ speaker and can get loud. Spider V 20 MkII also includes a 1/8″ stereo headphone jack, for practicing quietly.
Connect Spider V 20 MkII to a Mac®, PC, or mobile device via the Micro USB port, and use the free Spider V Remote application to access additional amps and effects, edit presets, and create custom presets that are compatible with all the amps in the Spider V MkII Series. Guitarists can also record, edit, and mix performances using Steinberg’s Cubase® LE application, a free download with registration of Spider V 20 MkII amp.
