I'm wanting a new Amp around 30 Watt, I have £160 to spend give or take and I play mostly Alternative, Rock and Metal such as Muse and Lostprophets, also a bit of Metallica. I've had many suggestions for Roland Cube and Vox but is there anything else?

Cheers in advance!

Dude the cube is really nice. Specially if you get one with effects, and then you can get the pedal sepeately to control them. that is some extra money but it comes in handy.

the UK amp models on the Vox are pretty awesome, but the metal one is kinda lame, goes good with pedals too i think

You can get that with the Vox as well.

If i were you, i'd get the Vox, i prefer it, cause of the better clean tones, and classic rock stuff. Go for the cube if you prefer hi gain (metal) stuff.

BTW, try and save up some extra cash for a higher wattage version of them, it'll be much better in the long run, and you wont be heard over a drummer with 30 watts. And 50 or 60 watts is just about enough to do so.

Cube 30x, ESPECIALLY for the band's you mentioned. This is from a proud Cube 60 owner. Good luck dude.

I don't like the Vox AD30, 50, or 100.

I recommend used from a private party. You'll find a better deal on a better amp than what you're thinking of getting.

How much would a larger Cube or Vox be then?

Personally I'd go for the Cube, it would suit the sorta semi high gain tones of Muse and Lost prophets

the Cube 30 would do fine, but if you can stretch the budget a bit, I think you'd appreciate a Cube 60 much more

Is the 60 just better than the 30 altogether, with the same features and effects etc.?

Well its higher wattage, so it'll be able to handle lower wattages (bedroom practice for example) a lot better.

and it also has footswitchable options for all of its effects, ie different channels, reverb, delay/chorus etc....

without a footswitch really I consider those effects useless

I've ordered the Roland Cube 60, not sure if it's any good because I haven't tried it yet but I trust your opinions lads! By the way can you order footswitches? The one I ordered didn;t mention it!

I'd imagine you'd want the latching type footswitches (the ones you don't need to hold down to keep them activated)

so look you might want to look into the Boss FS-5l, be it on ebay or wherever. Just speaking from experience as I own one and it has never let me down...and in the 2 years I've had it I've never had to change the battery
#16
Boss FS-6 Dual Footswitch works best with Cube 20x and up.

Roland Cubes are great for metal tones and it is modelled around a peavey 6505 (i think?)
