I've decided to either but a Peavey Bandit 112 or a Vox VT30. Which of these is better for Hard Rock & Metal? I play Led Zeppelin, & 70s & 80s Rock ,but I also play Metal like Black Sabbath, Metallica & heavier stuff like Children of Bodom ocassionally I play blues & I also need it to give me a nice "Woman Tone" like Slash in Sweet Child o' Mine & Eric Clapton. Which suits me better?
A good song should make you wanna tap your foot and get with your girl. A great song should destroy cop cars and set fire to the suburbs. I'm only interested in writing great songs.

Well, a VT30 is good for classic hard rock (at least the first runs, which is what i have)

Anything heavier than that isn't gonna happen without good pedals, and the preamp tube makes no difference.

I say Peavey Vypyr.

My last experience with a Peavey Bandit was sh*t in a large scale manner. I wouldn't recommend it.

Not sure how the Bandit compares to my transtube 110, but I like it alot better then a VT 30. it was also a bit more expensive.

Lordy, Bandits are terrible terrible terrible. The VT30 sounds good (what I've heard of it). Much more versatile too. This is a no-brainer imo.

Vox. To the person that said Metallica can't be done, It can. It's not exactly a Mesa Boogie, but I can pull off Master Of Puppets and For Whom The Bell Tolls with mine.

Get the Vox.
