And They Call It The Spider Valve
Well, it looks like the cat’s finally out of the bag… Line 6 has been alluding to something big for the last few weeks, and today they finally let us in on it.
In a collaboration with renowned tube-amp maker Bogner, Line 6 has apparently developed a whole new line of hybrid guitar amps––dubbed Spider Valve––that offer the best of both worlds: a digital modeling front-end paired with a set of 12AX7 preamp tubes, and powered by a pair of matched 6L6 power tubes driving Celestion Vintage 30 speakers.
The Spider Valve line will initially be available in three configurations––a 100-watt head, a 2×12″ 40-watt combo, and a 1×12″ 40-watt combo––and the front-end will boast 12 of Line 6’s best amp models based on classic guitar rigs, not to mention seven digital effects, including phaser, chorus, flanger, tremolo, sweep echo, tape echo, and reverb.
I guess it was only a matter time.
