Vetta II HD to Spider V 240 HD?

Recommended Posts

So... if you don't need the dual amps that the Vetta II HD offers, would a switch from the Vetta II HD to a Spider V 240 HD be an upgrade in tone or more of a downgrade?

 

What's your opinion?

It depends on the Ear of the Beholder. Tone is subjective so my opinion would be to try one prior to getting rid of the other.

True... but unfortunately I have to order one to compare it as I do not have any stores around here that carry it.

 

Just wanted to see if there were guys that owned both and how they felt about the Spider V when comparing it to the old Vetta (in terms of pure sound quality, modelling and FX).

I have the Vetta and it is a tone beast. With the VDI interface my Variax 500 plugs right in. I have not came across too many Vetta owners who were disappointed. One thing though is they are old and somewhat unsupported. The Spider V has had some great reviews and ............... a warranty. :)

I had a Vetta years ago, and my memory is a bit foggy but I think the Spider V sounds better. It's much easier to navigate with the simpler interface which makes tweaking easier. The mid/ high gain tones seem more dynamic. I had the "lost in the mix" syndrome when I had the Vetta, I believe a function of the lack of headroom in the power amp section. I've got none of that with the Spider V 240.

I ran a Vetta II for 5 years. The SpiderV240 tech is about as good imo. Vetta had more functional control options, but the Spider V amps have a nice variety of amps and effects.
