Hi, I'm getting my tax return back here pretty soon, and I'm looking to get a good modeling amp for practices and small gigs. I've been looking at the Roland Cube 30X, and the Vox 30 watt modeler as well, and I was wondering which one is more versatile? I like a good post-hardcore sound (mayday parade) as well as a good clean tone for acoustic style songs.

Vypyr + Sanpera II
but if you want an acoustic amp simulator go with a Roland Cube 30x

I've been reading reviews on the vypyrs and they don't seem very reliable based on people's experience right out of the box. Any thoughts on this?

Both of them are equally versatile, although I believe the Cube does high gain a little better... personally, I don't buy it and think the Cube is a box of fail. Go with the Vox.

EDIT: The Vypyrs were fixed with firmware updates.

The most versatile? Fractal Audio Axe-FX. In your budget? Used Line 6 Flextone.

Good to hear that the vypyrs were fixed. Does that mean if I order one new that it will have the new firmware already on it? Also, how do you think the vypyr compares to the vox?

vypyr is better for metal and hard rock. vox is better for cleans and poppish stuff.

it should, but you can connect your vypyr to your computer and download the new firmware if it isnt.

VYPYR IS CRAP! I learned the hard way!

Line 6 Spyder Valve pretty good.

thanks for being so specific and helpful.


what is the hard way? did you step in it? the SV is infintely more expensive than the Vypyr. It's also overpriced.

The Vypyr is most definitely not fixed. I bought a tube 60 a week ago, upgraded to the latest firmware, and it still would take about 10 tries to start when cold. I ended up returning it and will probably get a VT30 or Roland Cube.

I've got a Vox AD50VT. It's pretty nice. Good variety and effects.
