Spider iv 75 Fender Cleans
by ekaj12 on 2013-02-03 17:57:35

Hi folks. I have owned this amp for about a year, and I like it a lot but I do have one "bug"------It seems very tricky to almost impossible to get the Fender (Twang) models LOUD and CLEAN. There always seems to be "dirt" present in the signal, even with single coils and very low drive settings. The manual even makes mention of the fact that the Twin model stays clean "all the way up" (or something to that effect) but I have always struggled to get this. Always too crunchy! Any suggestions? I'm not a " noob" really, I have lots of playing experience and have owned many modeling devices over the years. Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Try different amp settings?   What guitar are you using?

Start w singles. It seems that the once the drive gets above about 25%, the crunch starts coming on really strong, even on the Twin model. No headroom. Maybe a factory reset? It's always done this though, since new.

Thanks

Yes - drive = distortion, same as 'gain' setting on some tube amps.
