There is a Sweet Child O' Mine song preset in your amp. From 'User', click right twice on the d-pad thing to see 'Songs', click up on the d-pad to get to 1980's, then spin the little wheel thing and you will find 'Sweet Child Ld (Lead)' (also, its in alphabetical order so it should be easy to find ). Hope this helps.

Sorry, didn't look at the date of the orig post. Disregard.
@predator191145 these is a song preset on the amp for that already. Just go to the Song Preset under the 80s and scroll to Sweet Child Ld. That should be what you need.

I have a Spider IV 75, and mine has a Slipknot artist preset in it, that would work for dualty. It aslo has an As I Lay Dying preset so you could use that for Sound of Truth. If you have a different Spider IV, check out the artist presets, Im sure it would have the same ones. Im not too sure though.

Any one out there know how to obtain a Dokken/lynch tone on the spider 4?
Also besides the presets on there already how about some more Scorpions tones and metallica tones. Rhythm and lead.
Currently Being ModeratedMar 22, 2010 4:16 PM (in response to dylanjunk)Re: Share Your Line 6 Spider IV Settings
Ok this is easy
Gain-9 to 9.5
Delay-1.5 to 2
These settings sound great on everything but they sound best on insane or crunch (adjust it the way you like it)

Hi, I'm searching the setting to play "Piece of my heart" of Janis Joplin on a Spider IV 15W.
I'm newbie with an electric guitar and I don't find this set...
Thanks for your help.
Currently Being ModeratedJan 25, 2011 11:46 PM (in response to zizi393)Re: Share Your Line 6 Spider IV Settings
Now Im sure this is wrong, but im sure you could play around with this as a start. I found that:
Module - Insane (Green)
Drive - 8ish
Bass - 4
Mid - 5 or 6
Treble - 8ish
Channel Vol - doesn't really matter, but Ilike 10
1 Gain - about half more or less (Red Comp)
Reverb - point it at about 10 o' clock.
I think this sounds pretty good when I play their songs, but If you have any changes please tell me. Hope this helps.
Currently Being ModeratedJul 25, 2010 10:22 PM (in response to dylanjunk)Re: Share Your Line 6 Spider IV Settings
hey i found a great setting for a heavy guitar or the ghost inside
mid- 1 for there older stuff 5 for the new album
all others - 0
Currently Being ModeratedJul 26, 2010 11:27 PM (in response to dylanjunk)Re: Share Your Line 6 Spider IV Settings
hey everyone, i recently discovered this master setting that's good for pretty much anything metal, and covers just about anything with a few tweaks.
channel - insane
drive - 4 to 7
bass - 5 to 9
mids - 2 to 5
treble - 6 to 8
reverb - 2 to 4
other effects - your choice
the reason alot of these are variable is because this general ballpark of settings has a wide range of applications and has alot of base in personal preference. but basically, this is how you can tell where to line up each individual setting:
drive - basically, this is just a matter of how heavy you want your tone to be. if you need a moderately crunchy, classic rock-ish tone, then go a little lower. if you want a highly distorted, experimental/industrial sound, then go alot higher. if you want a nice metal-hearty tone with just enough distortion to get good palm muting, then go for the middle. the only thing i'd warn against is applying more distortion than you need, because this causes everything you do on the fretboard to be heard more than it should be, such as fingers sliding across, etc. so the less distortion, the less your background noises are highlighted. you want to have a balance here between heaviness and playability.
bass - again, heaviness comes to play here. the more bass you have, the deeper your tone is going to sound. however, i've noticed that sometimes if i have too much bass, the palm muting tends to get blurred and sound bulky, so i wouldn't recommend going too crazy on the bass unless it goes flush with your other settings.
mids - here, the numerical ratio to heaviness is just the opposite. if you want a heavier metal/thrash sound, then go for lower mids. but if you want to have a classier rock feel, raise your mids a little. it's also just mostly personal preference, so adjust according to what you want to hear.
treble - on the other hand, your treble should be a little more constant. it's basically entirely personal preference, but leaning towards a higher treble does result in a newer metal sound, so keep that in mind as well. either way, you wanna keep it fairly high for anything you're gonna play, cause most guitar notes are on the treble side and need enough of it to sound out properly.
reverb - all in all, reverb just adds polish to your tone. so if you want a more classic sounding or 80s-based tone, then go a little higher on reverb. if you want a more modern sound, lower the reverb a little. but personally, i wouldn't recommend going much higher than halfway on the reverb, cause at that point the aftereffects tend to sound a little less desirable.
other effects - for the most part, it's all about personal preference. most of the effects are straight forward and their applications to your tone should be easily figured out, but if you have trouble, just listen to the style you're trying to mimic and adjust to fit. that's pretty much all i can say.
so yeah, there you have it folks. basically this entire setting mimics the typical marshall halfstack, the king of 80s metal and beyond. so if you're playing anything like metallica, megadeth, dokken, bullet for my valentine, black veil brides, judas priest, etc, then you should be able to emulate any varieties of these and more with the basics of this setting.

Thanks!! for that explanation, I now can play with my Spider iv 15 to find the 80's Chicago sound I've been looking for!!!
by the way, does anyone have any good settings for the Spider IV 15 for like Boston, Chicago, Air Supply, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Zep, Journey type groups
any ideas by anyone is welcome.

I spent a few days trying to get a decent Bullet for My Valentine sound out of my new Line 6 Spider IV 75. I think this is pretty close to it:

Master Volume 10 XD
Hope this comes in handy to anyone who listens to decent music out there.

Good musicians ,make for good music!

Hi...Just purchased a Spider IV 30 yesterday. I'm a long time tube amp user and wanted to try out the Line6 Spider IV series. I'm a guitarist in a show band and, because of the stuff we play, I find I'm using clean tones most of the time. I also find my back getting weaker the older I get so I don't want to lug around a 60 watt Fender Hot Rod Deville any longer.
Do any of you guys have any clean settings to share. I'm looking for some tones that would allow me to play clean at the loudest volume possible for the amp. I play a Les Paul studio mostly, sometimes a Strat.

Currently Being ModeratedApr 14, 2011 6:16 AM (in response to dylanjunk)Re: Share Your Line 6 Spider IV Settings - Matt Schofield Tones
I've been listening a lot lately to a great guitarist out of England by the name of Matt Schofield. He's got a very jazz like approach to playing the blues which I like very much. I also love the tone that he's getting out of his rig. He's got a '61 (I think) Strat with Fralin or Suhr Hot Vintage single coils into a Two Rock amp. The Two Rock is supposidly a Dumble clone with some extra bells and whistles. The tone is more mid rangy and has a organic woody quality. To find something close, I played the MP3 through my IV Spider 30 and dialed in as closely as I could. What I came up with for a clean tone was this....
(played using my Highway 1 pre-upgrade Strat - unmodded)
Matt Schofield Clean Tone
Drive at 10 o'clock (or so)
Bass, Mid and Treb maxed all the way
Channel Vol at 3 o'clock.
You want to get the drive not quite to the point of breaking up.
Here's the overdrive tone...
Matt Schofield Overdrive Tone
Drive at 1 or 2 o'clock
Bass, Mid and Treb maxed all the way
Channel Vol at 3 o'clock or adjusted to give a boost over the clean channel

I just bought the 30W spider IV and im currently going through a Queensryche phase, I was wondering does anyone have any good settings for songs like Jet City Woman?
Currently Being ModeratedApr 16, 2011 9:45 AM (in response to dylanjunk)Re: Share Your Line 6 Spider IV Settings
Ive had my Spider IV 75 for over 4 months now and thought Id share some of the settings I use. Hope these are of some help.
These are what I use for playing Metal/Metalcore, Ive Included a band name for each but many sound good on different songs and visa versa.
BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE
And I use a "Stereo Delay effect", Choruses, Delays and Echo's all sound good, still trying to work on that perfect Tears Dont Fall sound.
I currently have my amp set to this and it sounds Great for not only Trivium songs, but most metal songs with more grunt than the Bullet sound. Both bands use/used Peavey 6505's but have their tones set differently obviously to set them apart, I like both of these settings equally as much.
Drive - MAX
Bass - 7
Mid - 5
Treble - 7
A7X & OTHER
This one is a more fuller sound than the above, although very simillar, very good for drop-tuned breakdowns etc.
Drive - 8+-
Bass - 7
Mid - 8
Treble - 7
I use the above the most and find they suit most of my Headbanging needs.
A few more..
BAND DRIVE BASS MID TREBLE
LAMB OF GOD 7 7 6 4/5
PAPA ROACH 10 8 4 8
CHILDREN OF BODOM 8 7 4 9
KILLSWITCH ENGAGE 9 6 4 10
SLIPKNOT 4 6 8 8
KORN 4 6 4 6
Hope this helps some of you,
Currently Being ModeratedApr 29, 2011 7:24 AM (in response to erniedingo)Re: Share Your Line 6 Spider IV Settings
Here you go - just for the hell of it here are all my Spider IV 150 settings attached (don't mind sharing since, ultimately, it's how you play 'em more than what you play 'em through..) in a word doc.
Some of the patch names are obvious, others less so. I have learnt from experience to always copy a particularly good patch into this word document since, no matter how good the Spider IV edit is, I occasionally lose a patch or two moving them around. And what if the system crashes? Some of these have taken hours of tweaking during rehearsal etc.
BTW I play these with a Gibson LP Standard or LP Custom, except for some of the acoustic settings when I use a Tanglewood 12 string. No other effects.
Hope some of you find these useful/fun.

im using a 30W spider iv, im not sure if this will do for you but when i try FFDP i like to use these settings
For rhythm i use:
- Metal - Green
- Gain - 10
- Bass - 7
- Treble - 7
- Mid - 4/5
- Channel - 5
And for solo's i use:
- Insane - Red
- Gain - 10
- Bass - 7-10
- Treble - 10
- Mid - 0
- Channel - 10
For both channels i have quite a lot of reverb, probably about 4/5 level and for the solos i use just a little bit of delay. I also use a marshall MGDFX100 and the delay in that is brilliant, but for some reason i dont quite get the same from the spider iv.
Hope that was useful to you,

Okay, some PG sounds. I don't have his newer sounds (Fuzz Universe) but here I two I use for just about all things Gilbert. First one has that Get Out of My Yard feel to it. Distotion, but not too much. Second one works really well for Mr Big stuff. I love doing Take a Walk and Daddy Brother with it. I consider both as must haves in my preset list. These are in the Custom Tone section as well for those who would rather download them. F holes for Ibanez sold separately.

Strat style guitar w/maple neck,floyd rose locking trem and moderate output humbucker
Model....Hi Gain Green
Drive......3-4(according to pickup output)
Treble....5-7(according to guitar)
I also use the Tape delay model with tempo at170-180bpm and feedback at 8% for EVH's single slapback
delays.But all I hear is reverb in Panama.( of course,none of this is set in stone and it is just my interpretation)

Treble: 10 o'clock

thanks for the suggestion. I tried it out. Found this good for boosting volume without having to crank the channel or master volume (for soloing) but i didn't find a real change in tone or distortion with boost. I still need more dirt sound out of this amp. I have the little spider iv 15watter and that one on Metal - drive 100%, bass 12:00, mid 1:00, treb 100% has got some good dirt distortion tone that i can't seem to nail on the spider iv 75watter.
Currently Being ModeratedMay 5, 2012 5:46 AM (in response to briankstamp)Re: Share Your Line 6 Spider IV Settings
ok now scoop your mids to about 4 or 5 or 6 ur choice. I dont use that booster that much but its looks like a little to many highs but idk if your looking for,but turn your gates thresh down to about -45Dbs and the routing for the booster see how it is in the pre setting it might not be as loud but it will be lot better distorion, you can make up the volume diffrence by pushing the channel volme to 1o'clock or 2 but that might be a little much, but all i know is its eather pre or post that theres a sound diffrence but try pre on the booster fx. i might have it mixed up with the pre and post but yea try that.Like i sead before i dont know what tone your looking for but if the reverb is a little to much turn the mix on it down to about 15 or 20. Well try theses things lt me know it comes out.

A nice blues tone I came across looking for something between T-Bone Walker & B. B. King.
Using an Ibanez AX with stock Ibanez Pickups.
Since the Spider IV 15 just has the knobs with a dot I'll go with clock references.
Spider IV 15, Crunch
FX 1- off
FX 2- 2:00
Hope someone finds it usefull
