I think I'm going to get a Vox VT 50 because it seems like there is alot of work involved with tube amps, but since the VT series is a modeling amp series with a 12AX7, could it still give that tube like feel??

I mean, I tried the 15 watt, but I wouldnt think it could give me any respectable idea of what these amps can do.

Does anybody like these??

"Seems like there is alot of work involved with tube amps", the only thing with tube amps is that you need to change tubes and that is really easy.

Sums up whisky perfectly

Try it out along with other amps in it's style (Vypyr, Cube) and if you like it, buy it.

The valvetronix series is great value and they sound very good too. However, the still do not sound like tube amps. The 50 watt version is 400 bucks. For that price you could get a nice simple tube amp. It depends, if you need a very versatile amp capable of many different sounds, get the valvestronix. If you just need a good basic tube sound, look at tube amps in that price range.
The valvetronix will not sound like a tube but it still sounds good. Also, there really isn't that much maintanance involved with tube amps, you just have to change the tubes every 1-2 years...

this essentially - also, if you're totally sure you don't want a real tube amp (big mistake) then I'd get the VT30 instead - honestly, the volume difference is fairly minimal (the extra 2" of speaker does push out a bit more air) and since headroom is no issue in a modelling amp, you won't need the 50. I can play a gig with 100-200 people on clean tones with the 30w on full volume.
