Problem with spiders is they sound like you have a permanent head cold, plugged ears and whatnot. Very un-fun sounding.

And madison aren't great either. Their first run of stuff were direct marshall jcm2000 copies, but with more lights, and shittier components. Upon opening them, you could find duct tape inside of them holding them together. Also, the channel switching system always made a very loud crack sound when you switched, no matter what you did. Most failed within 3 months of use. Of the modders out there, they all offered the general "make it sound better" mods, but none of them could fix the channel crack. Generally dry sterile tone, fizzy high end, channel cracking, and about as sturdy as a house made of toothpicks.

I highly suggest you play multiple amps before you buy the cheapest thing out there. Buying the cheapest thing (like a spider) will never result in you being happy with your tone. I know this, because i bought the cheapest amp i could find once... and it was a spider... and i was horribly disappointed. Now i am MUCH happier with my marshall, that was fairly cheap for a tube head (800$).

I was very bemused as a youngster watching the Golden Girls when Blanche said she was going to "spank her fanny" I had visions of a geriatric vertical bacon sandwich red and bruised from being disciplined!!!
