right now i have a real crappy amp
and looking for a new one
i was looking into these:

Roland Cube 60 ($345)
and
Vox AD50VT ($360)

the cube has more wattage
but i know that vox is a good brand
so any suggestions/comments/reviews on those?
any pros and cons that can be discussed about each amp?
please do respond to this
im stuck with which one to choose

thanks yo

Roland cube is better for metal, and high gain stuff

Vox Ad50vt is better for everything else(blues, rock, jazz, classic rock)

it all depends on what music you like

just got the vox ad30vt today and it kicks ass

what if i play all kinds of music?
from metal to classic rock?
just use a distort pedal (Boss DS-1)?
#5
The Roland can decently do classic rock, not as good as the Vox tho, but the Vox can't do metal as good as the Roland, damn were stuck in a conundrum. I would go Roland.
#6
The vox has a decent metal tone, but its not as good as the cube

I would go for the vox ad50vt, its the better all-round amp, and with a decent distortion/metal pedal, im sure you'll be able to get a killer metal tone out of it.

EDIT: were at a deadlock, go to your LMS, and check out both amps, and get the amp you like the best, that way, youll be happy with what you got

vox's are the **** man, you can get so many different tones out of them. if you're ever gonna gig id get the vox

but just for practice, i'd get the roland.
i lost my virginity. can i have yours?

so am i able to get a nice classic rock tone with the Cube though?
because i like everything and would want to get the most out of an amp
and so the whole DS-1 to the Vox...would that get metal enough? or just cube it up for all those tones
and someone talked about a rectifier model that the vox didnt have
whats that?

Vox does classic tones better, Roland metal better, play them and decide which you like best.

You won't have that opinion in a couple weeks when the "oh cool" factor wears off and you realize your speaker sucks. Happened to me.

Cubes tend to be digital sounding on some of their settings. Vox doesn't have that problem. And you can get great MODERN sounds on a Vox. Hell, I'm not even sure what you really mean when you say MODERN since a lot of MODERN bands sound nothing a like. Vox is just a really poor choice if you want REALLY heavy sounds, like growling-like-I-have-3rd-stage-lung-cancer metal (that's a new subgenre btw, you should check it out).

haha 3rd stage lung cancer.....well its hard to explain what i mean by modern.....
mainly beefy, sounds good with DISTORTION (not overdrive) and ISNT metal
everyone is so biased about it. it isnt a metal amp, it can do anything you want it to
thats what KNOBS ARE FOR PEOPLE

Did you end up replacing your speaker?

Planning on it, but not yet. Right now it's sitting mostly unused on top of my other amp with a tall stack of DVDs on top of it.
