How To Re-set Spider Iv 30 Presets?

Recommended Posts

Hi, all, when I got my Spider IV 30, I messed around with the original presets -- now I'd like to get them back.  I have an amp with only four presets, not the newer one with many more.  Any suggestions?

Push and hold the 'A' or 'Clean' preset button while turning on the amp and hold for 5-8 seconds.  This will perform a factory reset.

Thanks, Mike, that helps (nice tunes, btw).  Another question: when I select a tone,I sometimes have a hiss, less frequently feedback.  This goes away if I mess with the volume or drive, but I wonder if it has to do with my physical set-up -- how close my guitar is to my amp, how close both are to other electronics in the room (TV).  Or is this just one of those things that you deal with...?

Sounds like the compression is on and cranked to boost volume way up - when you switch patches, you're not playing, only line noise coming through so it gets boosted.  You can turn the compression down (or off) and/or adjust the noise gate.

    Thanks.  I've come across comments about the "noise gate" in several places -- where do I find it on the Spider IV 30?  I've looked around back and stuck my head inside, but nothing obvious announces itself.

I'm not sure the 30 has a noise gate, but it is in the FX menu (its not a physical device).  use your 4-way button to navigate through the FX menu screen options.
