Wait, that's not really that great of a Crate and wouldn't be much of an upgrade from what you have now (eventhough I don't know what it is).

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

i tdon't have experience with the crate but i wouldn't buy it.
that vox better be almost new or tell ther guy he's crazy.
lower wattage doesn't mean it's worse ya know.
is is just for home practising ?

i think it is somewhat new...ive seen a picture of the amp and pedal and they look in near immaculate shape...ya for practicing and for minor gigs..ive heard these Vox AD models can really scream for their low wattages

The AD30VT is a VERY loud amp for its wattage.

But yes, the crate isn't good at all, buy the Vox, no contest.
