Hey guys.. so i have been looking around for a new amp for ages.. from all my research i seem to like the Vox Valvetronix AD50VT.. i play rock, punk and metal.. so does anyone know of any better amps in a similar price range for what i play or is this one of the better ones?
Thanks

yeah easily, I took on one of my uncles who's suppose to be the strongest in the family and has the hottest wife. Tamed him like my bitch and then wacked off afterward thinking about his wife.

All in all, a very productive day.

What exactly is your price range? Are you gigging or is it for bedroom playing only?

its bedroom/jamming with a friend atm.. but possibly could be gigging.. but i guess if i got to that i could buy a new one if it wasnt powerful enough.. and price range is bout 600-800 AUD

The Vox is a pretty good amp, but not really for high gain stuff. Do you gig? cause if you don't you don't really need 50W, I have a Cube 30(which is great for metal and rock!) and its plenty loud! I even use it for gigs btw! The other amp you could try would be a Peavey Vypyr. Their pretty good for just about anything!

I seem to really like exclamation marks!!

+1 to the Vypyr, that thing has so much built into it it will suit just about any music you play, plus the sound quality is applaudable for a solid state amp

Okay NEW POST

I went to Allans Music so here's a new recomendation: BUGERA 6262!

http://www.allansmusic.com.au/Product.aspx?c=7D7489DD-F0BD-4C1B-91AE-2616AB23FD3C&p=132097&r=5

Its $800 and its best amp for the money imo, just check all the screws!

The only problem is that it is 120W tube amp so it will be over loud for a bedroom, however you could keep the volume low in the beginning and then get a atitudenator.

If that seems a little insane to you(i have been told I'm psyco once or twice )
then you could get a Fender Blues Junior or a Vox Ac15 BUT you will need a OD pedal with the to get a good metal tone.

Well thats my 2.5 cents. Good luck in your amp choice get the bugera, get the bugera
