Question about Line 6 Spider Iii 15 Modeling Guitar Amplifier 15 Watt

1 Answer

The problem with my Line 6 is that no matter what setting it is on, it sounds clean and has some effect. Before, the "Insane" button would provide a very heavy metal sound, but now it just sounds a lot less heavy, almost like the Drive is turned all the way down, but it isn't.

Why is channel 1 clean/green not allowing my effects pedals to be heard? Only straight clean is audible. On all other channels they are present. Has anyone had this same issue? If so, is there a solution?...

Frankly, I've never heard of this problem and I've used Line 6 gear for years. I suggest contacting Line 6 customer support. Here is a link to their contact page

"Insane button has stopped working"

those micro switches tend to go out after awhile. what i have done is (if you have experience with circuit board handling and are proficient at soldering.) de-solder the bad switch and take it down to radio shack and have them size it up. and just replace it. i have had to do this with several of my line 6 products

Line 6 how do i get it to work

Line 6 connected to AC power and LED showing power to unit. Guitar into effect input, effect output to guitar amp. Does guitar make sound through amp in bypass mode? No then check cables...yes then use foot switch to turn Line 6 effects unit on. Adjust control knobs for desired effect levels/settings.

If pedal provides no switch defective or internal electronics in need of repair.

Wheres the preset button on a line 6 spider III 30 WATT

I am guessing that you are trying to replace the presets the amp comes with, with your own. In which case all you do is dial in the sound you want and then hold either the clean,crunch,metal, or insane buttons until you see the light flash. Usually hold it for about four seconds.

How do i change the settings on my line 6 FBV Express MK11 pedals A B C D to settings that i use?

Hi, befarms. The line 6 FBV Express allows you to select the A B C D in the existing/current bank. You will not be able to change the current bank, disable or enable the effects.
What you can do is, save the preset on the bank number that you desire by holding down the channel button on your amp whether it is A B C or D. Then when the button flashes, you can reinsert or rename the preset and save it to the channel(or bank) that you wish for by scrolling to the bank number and pushing the button on the amp (A B Cor D).
Therefore, you will be able to save your personal setting to a specific bank and channel.

Hope it helps you.

My Line 6 spider II amplifier sounds crappy. I need a quick fix.

If you are using the factory settings, and you have accidently changed the settings. Look at your manual and it tells you how to get it back to factory settings. If you tweaked the clean channel when you got it, you will have to play around with the settings to get what you want. Hope this is helpful.
