So I bought a Flextone 3 XL 2x12 and an FBV Shortboard over the weekend. I haven't had the chance to play it with my full band yet, but so far, it's looking good. I played it side-by-side with my buddy/rhythm guitarist/singer's Road King, and came to the following conclusions:

Does it have the subtle nuances of a tube amp; No.

Does it sound close enough, while being simpler and much more convenient; Absolutely.

No tubes to replace/go bad, no warm up time, it is exceptionally light, the 2x12 configuration moves a lot of air (You really need to take a few steps back to get an idea of how much space it can fill) and with the shortboard, its a complete rig.

So far, two enthusiastic thumbs up. Now just to see how it holds up with a full band...

So what's better? A vetta or a flextone?
The Vetta is "better" in that it has a larger array of tones, has the option to digitally upgrade the sounds, it can play two amps in stereo at one point, and it's sounds are more accurate duplications of the originals.
It costs more though.

Aren't some of the features of the Flextone based off the Vetta models?

I should've known I was breaking rule #1

Unfortunately, it is currently residing at my buddies house where we practice and we're not getting together till Sunday. I'll try to get some pics though

What did you have before?
Peavey Bandit 112. Not terrible, but not great either.

Vetta is more versatile, but I'll take the Flextone's simplicity (If one can call it that)

I believe the models that come in the Flextone 3 come right out of the Vetta.

Nah i would call it simpler, easy to get the tones you need as quick as you need, especially with the floorboard. My live recordings/videos on my profile were all done with the flextone, fantastic little amps they are.

^ Precisely.

I'll have to check out your recordings. Were they done direct or mic'd?
