Hello everyone,, I've always heard people bashing it so I decided to try it out. I played the 75 Watt at Guitar Center today and it sounded pretty fantastic to me. I play mostly metal but it still sounded great to me. My friend has the Peavey Vypyr and I actually liked the sound of the Spider IV better, to be honest. I'm in the market for a new amp and I am actually considering this now.
