The success of Spider IV proves that we continue to deliver exactly what guitar players want: access to a range of dialed-in amp tones, an expanded selection of killer onboard effects, and easy-to-use artist and song-based presets – all at a great price.
Calabasas, Calif. (Vocus) December 17, 2009
Line 6, Inc. (line6.com), the industry leader in digital modeling technology for music-creation products, is proud to announce that it has maintained its number-one sales position in the guitar amplifier category.
The company owes its continued success to the strong launch of Spider IV , its new line of modeling amplifiers.
The success of the recent launch was evidenced in the month of October, in which Spider IV 15 replaced its predecessor, Spider III 15, as the top-selling guitar amplifier in the United States. In unit sales, Spider IV 15 outsold its nearest competitor at any price point by more than 2-to-1 (according to MI SalesTrak® 2009 reports).
During the same time period, Spider IV 75 was the number-one selling 1x12" amplifier in the US based on unit sales, and Spider IV HD150 was the number-one selling amplifier head (according to MI SalesTrak® 2009 reports).
“The successful launch of Spider IV amplifiers proves that we continue to improve our products, and deliver exactly what guitar players want: access to a range of dialed-in amp tones, an expanded selection of killer onboard effects, and easy-to-use artist and song-based presets – all at a great price,” remarked Line 6 amplifier category manager Aaron Suplizio.
In 2008 and throughout 2009, many Spider III amplifiers held best-selling guitar amp positions in the US (according to MI SalesTrak® 2008 and 2009 reports).
The Spider IV amplifier line is well-rounded with five flexible combos and a powerful head. The four flagship amplifiers include 75-, 120-, and 150-watt combos, and a 150-watt head. Each one features over 500 presets, more than 300 of which were hand-crafted by world-renowned guitarists, and almost 200 of which were inspired by the most famous guitar songs of all time.
15-watt and 30-watt combos feature distilled collections of amp models that all guitarists require in their collections.
