I am playing in a band and I have a tube stack for playing. I don't like to leave it at my practice place though. I have to carry it back and forth all the time. I have the chance to get a Vox AD50VT to use for practice. How would this be through a 412 compared to a 100 watt head through a 412? I need to be able to compete with it for practice.

Thanks

Vox Valvetronix have a knob so you can control the output from 1 watt and up t how many watts it is. Id say go for the 100 watt version

I only have access to the 50. This is a trade. I'm not spending my my money on it and I don't have the money to spend on it really. Is the 50 going to be compareable to the 100 watts?

^Sure it will do it, in SS amps you should bassicly get the one with the most headroom, but the 50 will do good absolutley.

What you need to remember is it takes ten times the wattage to get double the perceived volume (+10db). Double the wattage, such as 50 watts to 100 watts, only gives you a barely perceptible volume difference. The AD50VT should be good for you unless the 100 has some features you can't live without.

Same amps just different power. One has an extra 12" speaker. I am running it through a cab anyway.

the 50 will should be more than enough volume. If it isn't you are practicing too loud.

I think that the 100 would be the better choice. Just because you'll want the headroom. If that's what you're using for all of your band practice, you're going to want to have some headroom and a higher wattage model will eliminate some feedback problems too.

It should be fine. 50w is more than enough to be heard with.

May I ask what you're trading for it though?

It was going to be a combo deal for a Schecter C-1 Classic. I was getting that and a bass. It fell through though.

Aww, that's sad. Hopefully it'll work out the next time around. It sounded like a pretty sweet trade.
