Vox Amplug AC30 vs. Classic Rock vs. Night Train

Hey. I'm thinking of buying a Vox Amplug, but I don't know which one. Judging by the sound clips and videos on the web,I'm gonna pick either the AC30, the Classic Rock or the Night Train. I'd like to have good clean sounds, but I also wish to have a good amount of distorsion (not necessarily for metal, but for rock/hard rock).
So, which Amplug is best suited to me? The AC30 might not be good enough for the distorted sounds, but the Classic Rock might not be good enough for the cleans. I don't really know about the Night Train.

You could get a couple.
I'd say go for the AC30 one if you really want those cleans.

It's, like, so ironic.

Have you considered getting a decent used multi effect pedal instead? Most have a headphone output so you could still practice silently, and they're be far more versatile than an amplug.

Why not. Would you recommend one in particular?

I like my Zoom G3, but that's probably a bit more expensive if you're only looking at spending 30 on an Amplug? (Not sure what currency you'll be shopping in?)

I often see the Digitech RP50 going for less that 30 on ebay though, so that could be a good option.

I've never tried them, but Line 6 are always recommended round here. Check out the Pod / Pocket Pod.
