i've made the catastrophic error of only using the spider valve for recording, so no cab sound and DI to interface. I was blissfully uinaware that this is very bad for a valve amp and as a result the amp no longer works. I get i will have to replace the Valves, which is fine but is there anything else that i could of damaged by running it this way?

Yes. Never turn on an amp without a proper output load on it.


Fuses will go open, more than likely the output transformer,... maybe the power transformer as well.

Needs to be gone through by a Line 6 authorized service center, and have it checked through properly

by a tech who knows the in's and outs of this product.


Don't do this yourself , the shock hazard is too great. One slip-up and it hurts like hell if you get zapped.
