  1. Spider amps don't have IR loading. Your best bet is to go on Customtone where you can download presets for free
  2. Here are a few ideas: - check the lights on the FBV. The red (volume) should be on. If not, the expression pedal is assigned to a parameter like delay, etc. - do a factory reset - plug in the FBV. Look under the pedal- there should be a light glowing inside. If not, the opto led may be bad.
  3. Because there are so many possible ways to configure a modeling amp with effects, it's really up to you to experiment to get the sounds you're trying to create. As far a boost goes, there is an effect called "Boost and Eq" which you can move to the end of your signal chain to increase volume. I use it all the time as a boost, or to equalize volumes between presets. Check it out. If you're not using the Spider V Remote app, I recommend it- it will make creating a signal chain much easier.
  4. Don't bother with it. Just get some plumbers Teflon tape, wrap the end, push it in, and it will fit pretty snugly.
  5. You might be confusing Master volume with Channel volume. Master volume is modeled from tube amp circuits, and Channel volume is a control modelers use to level preset volume
  6. The channel volume is modeled but since it has no effect on tone, use it to level your preset volumes with no worries.

    User presets

    I guess I'm not understanding what you're asking. When you connect the Spider V to the Spider Edit app, there is a list of all the presets that you can overwrite. There are 128 preset slots to load your custom presets, and you can also click and drag the presets in the list to move them into the bank you want.
  8. If you're happy with the tones of your V60, and don't want to play in a band or jam, I'd probably say don't bother buying the 240. The advantages of the 240- much louder, better speaker(s), stereo tones, XLR outputs probably don't outweigh the cost of the 240. But, I have a 240 and it's a great amp, so if you plan on moving up down the line and it's a great deal, you could go for it. How's that for playing both sides, lol!

    User presets

    If you hook up to your computer, you can save presets with Spider Edit. That way you can store presets you might not use that often, but load them on your amp when you need them. Or you could get a FBV3 and you'll have 32 banks to store your presets.
  10. It sounds like you need a setup. It shouldn't be necessary to adjust the bridge like that. You probably need a fret level.
  11. On a Spider V, you can overwrite any preset location, factory preset or empty. That's 32 banks of 4 presets (128 total) for your dining and dancing pleasure. Using the Spider V remote app it's easy to move things around.
  12. Since I'm no longer gigging, I have a near mint condition JTV59 in Tobacco Sunburst that I can sell if you're interested. It is my backup. Included is gig bag, battery and Workbench dongle.

  13. Personally, i think a deodorant application block should be a higher priority...
  14. Have you played one? I've got a full Helix system and a bunch of good tube amps, so I know a little about tone. The Spider V's have a bad rap, because earlier Spiders were aimed a beginners and sold a million of them because of it. The newest version, V, has some great tones derived from Pod Farm which you've heard on literally 1000's of major label records. Go on Custom tone and check it out and here's a video debunking some of the memes out there: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S5eukxILK3M
  15. I just checked Musicians Friend, they have both items in stock and ready to ship. I don't know why you got that info.
