Hey everyone,

I have the option of buying an almost new VOX VT30 for £80. I currently have a fender mustang 20 watt combo, would you advise i buy this?

I was going to buy a new pedal for myself, but i've read reviews on it and it looks like a great amp and i was just looking for your opinions.


My question is, and please appreciate that i am a bit naive when it comes to amps, can this be used for gigging through a pa? It's a 30watt amp.

Second question, would it be wrong of me to say this is a tube amp? I've read up and it says it has a 12AX7 vacuum tube, again forgive my naivety but i didn't think you could get a valve/tube for that price.

Thanks

This a Hybrid amp, it has a tube preamp by no tubes.

I have one, and I love the sound I get from mine.

It is a modeling amp though, so if your use to running everything through a pedal setup you need to dial in a really good clean model and just use that with your pedals running over it.


As for gigging, this amp is ideal for a standalone guitarist or maybe a duo. With a P.A. system I suppose you could get away with a three piece setup but it would depend on the size of the venue.

It is indeed though, a great amp for home practicing and what not. You can get some really cool sounds out of it - its Vox's apporoach to the whole modeling amp thing, Peavey Vypers and Line 6 spiders are digital modelers, but this one is analog.

Thanks for the reply

I didn't even think about the pedal issue, though i'm sure i can get a decent enough clean sound as a basis.

I think i'll get rid of the fender and buy this then as my practise amp, and then save up for an amp more suited for gigging.
