Line 6 Introduced Powercab 212 Plus and Spider MkII Amplifiers

At Summer NAMM 2019, Line 6 debuted the Powercab 212 Plus Active Stereo Guitar Speaker System and the Spider V MkII series of practicing and performing amplifiers.

All five Spider V MkII amplifiers let you plug in and immediately rock a traditional amp tone, or tweak parameters until you’ve devised a unique tone of your own. The all-new presets include classic amp sounds dialed in by a renowned tube-amp maker, and showcase the new Classic Speaker mode.

The 500-watt Powercab 212 Plus is the premier amplification system for Helix or any modeler, offering a flat (FRFR) mode, or a choice of 12 proprietary speaker models – not the same as cab models or cab IRs, for an authentic “amp-in-the-room” playing experience.
