Hey guys I posted a thread before because I'm looking to upgrade from a VOX AC4TV tube amp to a bigger tube amp for gigging at bars and a wider array of sound, hopefully encompassing several tones.


Fender HotRod Deville 4x10 Tube Amp (60 watts) - $490


1974 Fender Twin Reverb - looks to not be in the best shape - $600 70 - 100 watts (not specified)


VOX AC30C2 - Used Mint condition - $900ish - 30 watts


Fender Blues Deville 212 Combo - Used $600 - 60 watt

Fender Super Sonic Head - Used $700 - 60 watt


Thanks a bunch guys, any advice appreciated

The only one of those that you could live with without pedals is the AC30. The old Twin is the best one though, just throw an overdrive in front of it.

I'd go with the Supersonic, AC30 and twin, in that order of preference. I don't think you'd need a pedal necessarily with the Supersonic.

+1 i think that in general that the supersonics are very underrated. i would go SS first, then twin (need an OD though), third vox.

The Night Train is a pretty sweet amp. I've only tried the 15w nt but I was pretty impressed. Maybe get an od pedal for a lil variety but I'd sport it. Plus they look cool.

i wasn't impressed the 50 watt vox NT head, very flabby cranked up.

grab the twin.

I'd pick either the Twin or the AC30.

The Deville has a nice clean channel, but a shit dirt channel, although it takes pedals well.
Still, the Deville would be my last choice out of all those you listed.

The AC30 takes 1st place for me, with the Twin a very close second.
