I was just checking out the Vox Valvetronix AD50VT... and I was wondering if it's loud enough to get over the drums without going over volume 5 or 6. I'm not one to be basing my amp purchases solely on wattage, it's just that 50 watts seems like it's kinda pushin it, even for a hybrid... what do you guys think?

it will be fine. a 15 watt amp with an 8 inch speaker can get over drums for a start. even so, why not take the volume over 5 or 6? its not going to damage it seen as its made to be played at 10.

I doubt it man.

I had a Marshall MG15, and Marshall are pretty loud amps. And I had to turn it up to about 7 to get over drums and bass.

But If I were you. I would buy a really cheap amp, and then save up for a cellestion speaker to put in it around 101 Sound range. It would kick out more sound than you could handle. lol

I dont wanna take it over 5 or 6 because 5 is generally the volume at which the amp is performing at it's maximum tonal quality. I've got an 80 watt Peavey Bandit right now, and It gets me to about to the right volume I want to be at to be heard over drums at about 5 (actually it's just a smidgen too loud for the small room I'm usually playing in)

I've played in a band where the other guitarist had a Cube 60, and that was right about at the sweet spot volume I want to be at... It's just that I've heard the Valvetronix are alot better for clean bluesy, and overdriven classic rock tones, where as the Cube's are superior in the area of metal tones.

Anyways, is a 50 watt hybrid like the valvetronix going to end up getting me a volume close enough to that of the cube 60... I just want it loud enough on 5 or 6 so that I can be clearly heard over a set of drums

Yeha I have Th 100w to, The thing about the valvetronix is that Is has a "watt nob" on the back were you can change the out put, I keep mine at 50w, but if I play with others I crank it,

Your best bet with a Valvetronix is maxing out your master volume and using your wattage control as your volume, especially in high-volume situations.
