Hey,

Would a VOX valvetronix XL be a good upgrade form my Marshall MG30DFX?
I Play Punk/Metal and need a amp that can suit that. I willl be practicing in my bedroom and playing with other people.

so yeah is it really worth it?

By some of the threads ive seen round here an MG is like a death sentence to good sound, anythings better than an MG my friend...

myself, i haven't tried the XL valvetronix yet. but i must say, Roland Cube might be another option for you too.

It would be an upgrade, but a bigger upgrade would be a tube combo.

On the MG 30DFX, do you use the volume at 8-10??

if not then you might wanna focus on tone rather than power..

the orange tiny terror! $$$ but cheap

I've recently got the 30watt Valvetronix XL.....I love the amp, and 30watt is more than enough for bedroom practice...
#17
i would check out the peavey all valve ValveKing...it costs around 400 bucks but then you got a musch better amp than the valvetronix + the valveking is all valve and has a great dist!

I like the Roland just a bit better then the Vox AD series, but try as many as you can. For versatility I went with a Vox DA 20, but it's not really a good metal amp.

Of course it is ... Vox ADxxVT-XL is the proper designation so it is an AD series amp.
