Today at the 2012 Winter NAMM Show in Anaheim, California, Line 6 introduced its flexible new StageSource L3t loudspeaker system. The unit is unique because it is built on a technology platform that enables a single enclosure to provide best-of-class performance in multiple live sound functions.
Ever dream of a room full of guitar pedals that you can try for as long as you like with no sales pressure and all your questions answered? So did New York’s The Deli Magazine, so they put together their CMJ StompBox Exhibit, a sort of petting zoo for pedal-files.
Line 6 has enlarged its Spider III family of modeling amps in the smallest of ways with the battery-powered Micro Spider amp.
The littlest Spider sports a six 1/2–inch speaker, six watts of power and eight legs. Just kidding. Features include four Spider III amp models, a new acoustic guitar model, six Smart Control effects (including reverb, chorus and tap delay) and what the press release calls a “precise chromatic tuner” —- as opposed to the wildly inaccurate tuner that made a disaster of last Sunday’s church service singalong.
Weighing a mere seven pounds (not sure if that’s with the six C batteries installed), the Micro Spider has a headphone out, a POD 2.0-style direct output, and guitar input and a mic input with trim knob.
