I'm looking for a new tube amp and I played a Vox AC15 CC the other day and liked it a lot. I can get one new for around $450, but I can get a discount on most amps. I play classic rock mostly - the Beatles (which is what drew me to the Vox), Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, blues stuff like SRV, fuzzy distortion like Hendrix... I also want an amp that takes pedals well. My question is, with a budget of around $600 sticker price, is there a better value amp for what I'm looking for?

well half the artists you mentioned use marshalls (plexis actually) and SRV used fenders.

Vox are good for old skool british pop/rock like cream, beatles etc, but there usability sort of stops at classic rock. not enough distortion for much else. im not sure about reliability as theyre newly released, but the Bugera V22/V55/V55HD are supposed to have good versatile tone.

Vox Valvetronix VT20+
Vox Wah

Ceriatone amps, Cheap and apparently good marshall clones. The AC15, newer models, IMO are cheap chinese manufactured pieces of crap. When you start turning the master volume up tonnes of treble rapes my tone. But that's my opinion

There's a lesson to be learnt.

I got my sister pregnant once. Yeah, that was awkward, but mostly because she's 6 years younger than me.

My AC15's tone only get's fatter when I turn up the master volume. It does have new tubes though.
