Amp Shopping - Guitar Question

A JamPlay Member Asks...

"I'm about ready to get an amp again. Never had a rockin' head and cabinet, funds just don't allow. Anyway, have you ever gotten to use the Line 6 combo amp and whats your take on them. I was looking at the Spider IV-75 watt combo. These new amps with all the presets with 16 different amp models and 300+ hand-crafted artist-created presets and 200 dialed in song-based presets sound nice if your jammin' covers with your friends. Seems to eliminate the need for a lot of effects and I'm guessing you can always create your own anyway. So does it eliminate the need for a effects processor also? Thanks."
