Can we use Line 6 Spider V 30 with an acoustic guitar?

Recommended Posts

I bought a Fender Stratocaster Classic Vibe and a Line 6 Spider V 30 last week. I already had a Yamaha acoustic guitar. Can I use the amp with my acoustic guitar as well?

Yes you can but you may not be happy with the result. An acoustic guitar has a much wider dynamic range than an electric guitar. An electric guitar amp like the Spider amp is designed for the narrower range of frequencies; it does not handle the higher end and overtones of an acoustic guitar very well.

Will using the line 6 amp with an acoustic guitar have any adverse effect on the amp?

Yes you can! Spider V amps have a high frequency tweeter in addition to a guitar speaker, so it works great with acoustic and electric guitar. The combination of tweeter handling the higher frequencies and guitar speaker handling the mids and lows allows yout to get some great acoustic tones from a combo amp. You may have noticed there are acoustic presets in Spider V that should get you going quick in dialing in an acoustic tone.
