The Bugera is all tube but the Vox has a good almost tubelike sound. The Vox has the USB out so I know I could go DI and get the pure amp sound in my recordings but the Bugera just has a phones out and I've been told it would work for DI but nobody seems sure that I'll get the full tube signal? I'm a strat guy and those bluesy cleans are important to me. The John Frusciante sound basically. If I'm using this for home recording which one would u recommend? If u had to choose one of these.
Do you need to keep volumes down? Or can you mic up your amp?
