alright, one question about the vox valvetronix xl 100 watt combo, is it actually all-tube, or is it meant to sound LIKE all-tube? this will pretty much make my mind up, but just in case, which is better, the vox, or the B52 at212 combo. thanks.

you heard wrong. But you could get a much better 100 watt amp than a vox.

i would go with the b-52. the vox has a tube preamp, that i really think is just a marketing scheme.

Dude, get a any Vox with tubes and you'll be happy.

They're some of the best amps EVER.

Trust me, I have one and you don't want anything else after you hear one. especially if you compare them.
