creating a clean flat sound when using the Spider V

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have had the Spider V for two years now.  It is great, however, I am looking always looking for new sounds.  I want to be able to use pedals and tabletop amps with the Spider V To get a flat sound, do I simply need to turn off all of the effects? How would any of you go about creating a clean 'flat' sound? Or would I be better off buying a cab for the tabletop amps?

 

Have a nice day

I'm not sure what you mean by "table top amps", but there are a variety of clean amp options under "Clean" (lol) when you look at the amp menu on Spider Edit-Line 6 Super Clean, Sparkle Clean, etc. Most of the time, when using pedals, you'll want to look for an amp model that has the basic tone you want and put the pedal in front of that model. In other words,  if you want a Marshall type sound, find a Marshall amp model that sounds close to what you're looking for, and use that as your pedal platform.

 

HOWEVER!  The Spider V series are digital modeling amps, meant to be an all in one solution to recreating a variety of amps and effects. They don't act like a normal tube guitar amp when using stomp pedal, etc, plugged in front. Most of the time it doesn't sound that great, but you can try it out.

Thanks, that is just what I meant.  I bought the Spider V cause I wanted something relatively cheap that I could practice with to see if I wanted to get back into guitar.  It seems I do, so I guess I'll be buying another amp.

If you want to run Spider V flat turn off all effects, and for the amp you can select "no amp" from the clean amp category. If you are running pedals into Spider V I recommend using an amp model.
