The newest and smallest member of the Spider III family from Line-6 is the Micro Spider.  This ultra-portable combo amp retains a lot of the features and value of the bigger combo amps in the line-up, without giving up too much in the name of battery powered portability.  Carrying over from the rest of the Spider III family are 4 amp model presets, plus a new acoustic model as well as overall tone control for your modeled stacks. Six different FX are also available, 2 at a time, on 2 “smart control” knobs for less fuss and more playing time.  There is also a tap button for synchronizing time-based FX to your songs.  In addition to the guitar input, the Micro also has an input for a vocal mic with its own gain control, and a mini stereo input for a CD/MP3 player or whatever your practicing needs may be.

When you are ready to record, the Micro features a balanced TRS output, just like the POD 2.0, for easier patching into whatever your recorder may be.  There is also a built in tuner with note display, which is pretty sensitive, so you know you will always be playing in tune.  And for those times when you’ve worn the batteries thin, an AC adapter is included to keep you rockin’ until replacements are found.  .  If you’re always on the go, or need a small combo amp to keep your chops up, you may want to see what the Micro Spider has to offer. You might be surprised by what this 6-pack sized amp can do.
