Very versatile- can do most genres, just not really high gain stuff

if you think this is gonna sound like a tube amp youre wrong. it just has one tube but the preamp is purely solid state. either go for a tube combo or a tube head and cab. that is if u want tube sound. if youre looking a bit of tube and more of a solid state sound then go for it

Most amps can't do really high-gain stuff unless you overdrive them with a petal anyway.

Well... Crate RFX series and Roland Cubes can without sounding like ass + being reasonably priced. The Vox AD-series has more tone-sculpting options though...

Basically that's arguably the best modeling amp (line, the bigger ones are better) on the market today.

Actually no. I think Jonakin or someone was going to go try it soon. Well, maybe not Jonakin, I can't remember. We were discussing it in THE Valvetronix vs. Cube.

If you have $239 for an amp and $600 for a guitar you have $839 (sorry for stating the obvious. Instead of that amp you can get a tube combo for $500 and a decent guitar for $339. $500 will get you a killer used tube combo, a decent new tube combo. There are some really decent guitars in the $300 price range new, of course used you can do better on the guitar also.

If you don't want tubes the next best thing in my opinion is the Peavey Transtube series. Really good sounding solid state amps for lower volume playing. The Roland Cubes aren't bad. I think they are the best sounding modeling amps. Don't know if the Cube would do Allman Bros. though.

yeah but thats just one song i mean i play alot of other songs too

why wouldnt you want a tube combo if you can afford it? you can use a 15-30 watt tube combo for practice and potentially for gigging later on. plus, some lower wattage tube combos like the crate palomino series can cost you the same as the roland cube or some other comparable solid state/hybrid. having an okay/decent guitar through a great amp is way better than having an excellent guitar through an average solid state practice amp
#22
can you give me a link of a good tube amp then

thx

if you find you don't have enough gain you can find a good OD pedal which you will still have spare money for... it'll sound sick!
#25
