Question about Line 6 Music

Open Question

On my previous question, help for biasing the output tubes, this is a Line 6 Spider Valve HD 100 Mk1 Bogner guitar amp. There are no potentiometers for this in the Mk1.

Online search for information, or schematics. There is plenty of information for the MK2, even youtube videos, but nothing for the Mk1.

SOURCE: Not getting enough distortion(esp ltd ax-260)

Hi,

It's not your pickups. It would be nearly impossible to loosen a wire inside of your guitar by having even heavier than your amp head drop on it. It is most likely your volume pot. The post, if hit hard enough, can virtually distroy your pots. Another possibility could be your jack, al though considering where it's located on your guitar, it would be very hard to damage it by having something drop onto it.

There is little else that could be the problem. Hopefully you didn't damage your guitar too badly. If the guitar was in front of me, it would be a relatively easy diagnosis.

Fortunately, volume and tone pots are inexpensive, and if you're handy with a soldering iron (or you have a friend that is) it is an easy install with four to six solder points, depending on your configuration. I don't want to assume it's a stock setup, but when you take off the rear electronics cover, you will immediately see what configuration you have.

If you have possibly damaged the pickup bobbins (assuming you have the stock humbuckers in your guitar), you would be able to see the damage, It would either look damaged,or work correctly. As you know bobbuns are simply wound wire, and that's not easy to damage. Plus your strings provide a minimal amount of protection, unless your amp head slammed it very hard. Start by replacing the volume pot. Cheapest parts first. There is no way to test the pot with anything like a potentiometer, because there is virtually no voltage that passes through the pot. Additionally, unless you have active pickups, your pickups cannot be either. If you do have to replace your electronics, you can find a large variety and even upgrade your parts by searching eBay. The good thing is that you havce a guitar, and guitar parts are abundant, relatively cheap, and most people change out electronics just to achieve a different sound.

If you are so inclined, most good guitar shops will diagnose your problem for cheap and apply the cost of the diagnosis to the cost of the repair. Good luck, and I hope I have given you some information to work with.

Thank you for using FixYa

Disable ALL digital settings....problem gone? If not, with tube guards and/or shileds removed try lightly tapping on each tube (one at a time). Does your amp go crazy while tapping one particular tube? If yes then it is new tube time.

It sounds like you have a dirty pot (the volume control). Unfortunately the only way to clean the pot is to open the amp up and try to spray some Servisol Super 10 in through the small opening in the pot case.

WARNING: Tube amps contain lethal voltages even when unplugged! If you are not an experienced service engineer then take it to someone who is! It is a pretty common task in guitar amps so shouldn't cost too much.

Possible that the output tubes that were replaced are drawing too much current, hence the popping sound (may be "motorboating", one common word to describe a similar sound)

This means the tubes need to be biased properly. You need to get it to someone who knows what they are doing, ie a good amp tech, not GC. The voltages here are dangerous.

What causes your line 6 spider amp to turn on and off while using


This MAY be due to overdriving the amp. The single chip amplifiers used in these have thermal protection usually and will cycle on and off if you drive it too hard. This is a tiny amp and is for use as practice and is NOT suitable for heavy use. Most of these use chips like the TDA 2050 and MANY of them have VERY substandard heatsinks and often don't even use thermal conductive grease under the chip.

If you want loud, then you need to step up the size of amp you are using to say a 100 Watt one that is designed to take the power.

My guitar won,t play threw the amp lots oof static


The things to check arre FIRST the cable. These often have breaks or bad connectors. Replace with known good one and try it.

Next are the jacks on the guitar and the amp. These go bad and wiggling the KNOWN good cable at each end will flag which or both being bad.

Next are the switches and potentiometers in the guitar. Use some CRC226 sprayed into the pot and switch contacts... use sparingly...

The key is to find which thing or things are bad.
