This is the third installment of my 4-part series of blogs looking at dialing in great tones on your Line 6 Spider Valve MkII guitar amplifier. (Did you miss blog #1 or blog #2?)

For these blogs I have been using the computer editor Spider Valve MkII Edit, which is compatible with both PC and Mac®. You can download it for free here and, using MIDI or an FBV™ MkII Express or Shortboard foot controller, you can connect your Spider Valve MkII to your computer.

This third blog will focus on dialing in clean tones, based on those of a Fender® 65 Twin Reverb® and a '59 Bassman®. I will be using just one amp model from Spider Valve MkII:

Twang Amber: Inspired by* the sound of a 60s Fender® Blackface Twin Reverb® to produce a classic Nashville spank.

So check out the video, get the tones here and here, and leave me some of your comments below. Also check out the rest of www.line6.com for more info on the Spider Valve MkII amps, and check out my own website http://www.rowbinet.co.uk
