Gearank High Notes

Gearank Recommended

The Line 6 Spider V 240 MkII first appeared on our recommended list for Modeling Amps in June 2021 where it remains today.

Cons

  • Too much of anything can be bad, hence why some rate this amp lower for having too many features
  • Given its 2 x 12″ speaker configuration, this is a heavy and bulky solid state amp.

Pros

  • This amp is loud, with its Hi-Fi full-range speaker setup with dual 12″ woofers and tweeters
  • Speaker system is ideal for amp modeling and for handling other instruments, and can double as multimedia speaker
  • Classic speaker mode (tweeters and cab sims off) option for traditional amp sounds
  • Lots of amp models and effects to play with, great way to experience and learn about different guitar gear

The Spider V 240 MkII is the loudest and biggest combo amp in Line 6’s current line of Spider amps/ combining a 240-Watt amp with two 12″ speakers and two tweeters, along with amp modeling and effects.

The amp’s digital sound processing power allows for a wide variety of tone options, thanks to its over 100 built-in effects, 78 amp models, 24 cab simulations and 4 mic models. To make better use of the amp’s sound processing, Line 6 added two HF drivers along with its 12″ woofers, which expands the higher frequencies beyond what normal amps provide.
Interestingly, this feature is not positively received by some guitarists, so for the MkII version, Line 6 added a way to switch off the HF drivers together with cab and mic modeling to give it more of a traditional amp tone. Other features include having an onboard tuner, metronome, looper, and drum loops.

When it comes to features and tone versatility, the Spider V 240 MkII is hard to beat. It’s a good all-in-one stage amp for those that want to simplify their rig.
