Hey guys--
Looking for a good pedal setting for a line 6 spider III...
I'm thinking of getting the Jemini, heard it was really good, but need an amp tone that will let it shine through...
Cheers

hey neighbor, im in fremont!


anyways,

your spider 3 does not need a pedal....especially a distortion pedal....that thing has plenty of gain for you....plus that pedal you mentioned isnt as great as others

distortion pedals for me at least, only make sense when you are using an amp that has only 1 channel...but i had a spider amp a couple years ago and it did not take pedals well at all


i think you are better off at saving your money for a higher quality sounding amp, and just play with the settings on the spider till you find what you are looking for

Current Set up:
Atomic Reactor 2x12 Cab/power amp with a Digitech rp1000 as a preamp

Try to tweak the presets a bit more to achieve a good tone, sometimes it is easy to "overtweak" the presets cause there are many options available so because of this it is always best to keep things simple. Try every amp modeling on the amp without effects, and see how the EQ section is reacting on changes. Then add slowly one component at a time, like compression, reverb, delay, depending what you need. Usually chorus and flange can sound good on clean, and delay can be used on both clean and lead, specially solo presets. For rhythm presets I recommend using simple preset without too much reverb or possibly any delay at all.

About Jemini pedal.. well I'm not sure how it can help, but OK if that's what you need buy it. Be sure that you try it in the store with the same amp that you have, or at least see if you can get it back to the store if you don't like it.
