Hey guys, I had some questions and help needed in me getting some new gear. Now first the amp im looking into is the line 6 spider amps, and i know theres a thread on it, and it seems to be getting negative responces but I figure opinions should differ based on different players, style, and the sound you would want to achieve.

Now with that said maybe a little background on what i want to get out of my sound, and a little info on me, first Ive been playing for about 9 years and for 7 of thoes years i had the same guitar and amp, I still have my original amp, a small fender amp, that has served me well, but Im in a band and we play, rock/metal. I invested in an LTD EC-1000, there is a teacher on the site that has the same one, great guitar. So the kind of sound I want is take Testament, Megadeth, and Slash roll it into a ball, and thats my style I guess and what I want to sound somewhat like. (I want to sound like me, not them, you know what I mean) I have never been to big a gear head so I really dont know what I should be looking for.

In guitar world magazine I saw the Line6 SpiderValve and fell in love with it, mainly because I want some effects but cant seem to spend the money on effects pedals, now at the moment im caught between two Line6 options, one is the Spidervalve 212, and the Spider III HD150. One question about the HD150 and its probably a very very stupid question, but does it come as just the head, or does it come with the stack too? I only ask because looking at musicians friend it shows pics with the stack but for the price it doesnt make sence. So I guess My main concern is which way should I go between the two, and if its a really bad idea to go with the Line6 what would be my best option to look at, I dont want to spend too much over $1000, but my budget is as high as $1500 for it.

Now with that, I was looking at a Boss ME-50, the huge effects pedal that seems to be getting good reviews and is something Id like to play around with, now if I was to get this would it be a waste to have gotten the line6 amp? would I be better off with a solid tube amp and the Boss pedal? Overall its really confusing and, I dont want to spend $1500 and regret it.

So any help is greatly appreciated, i'll attach some links to the gear I was looking at, in case you guys need to see the specs on them or whatever.

Thanks smile.gif
