SWR Spider Amps?

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by jodathmorr, Jan 19, 2003.


  1. Well i know the amp set up for the guitar is called the Spider (Spyder maybe) but what do you guys think about those pimp SWR amps? There the ones that come with that bean shaped thing and it makes effects. Does anyone know what im talking about?

    I know the guitar one my friend has kicked serious ass, I was wondering if the same was true for the bass version.

    Are you talking about the Bass Pod (Line 6)?
    I've tried one and I lke it very much. Fun to play with. There is no relation to SWR bass amps..

    Spyder is made by Line 6, not SWR. Perhaps you refer to the Line 6 Bass Pod?

    I owned a Bass POD - it was my first "real" amp - but I ended up trading it in because it had too many bells and whistles that I never used. Plus I didn't like the fact that you couldn't mix and match effects. I suggest you try one out before you buy one. :cool:

    The thing that you are linking to is indeed the Bass POD - the guitar version of it is red. Perhaps browse through http://www.line6.com and see if you see what you are describing there. Otherwise there's http://www.swrsound.com
     
  8. I think he might be talking about the "pro" versions... they look like rack mounted amps. They do about the same thing though.
