Line 6 Announces Itsy-Bitsy Spider

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.

List price is a $199.99. For more info, go here.
