i am thinking of getting a new amp. i would like to know what difference in sound quality there is between an Epiphone Valve JR and my current amp which is a behringer V tone (came with guitar strap etc). sound clips would help

Valve junior will sound a lot better, though if you need more distortion you'll probably need a pedal.

how about this.
Marshall MG 30DFX
would it be any good or would the Epi valve Jr still sound better.

VJ will still be better toned, easily.

Its a tube amp, and tone-wise it will blow other similarly priced SS amps out of the water (in most cases)

But it wont be incredibly versatile, you will need a nice OD or something to get heavier OD if thats what you want.

by "wont be incredibly versatile" what you really mean is that it's a one trick pony.... out of the box at least.

fortunately, it's quite renowned for the number, availability and ease of modifications that can be done to it. IMO, it's a great amp to build an effects rig around and dive into the world of modding. its tone to price ratio is nearly unbeatable. just be willing to expand and you'll be quite happy.
within you lay everything
every key

untouched and in plain sight

basically +1 on what everyone's said- it has nice tone, but is a one trick pony, and if you play anything much heavier than lighter classic rock you'll be disappointed unless you have a good booster pedal or are prepared to do some mods as static said (be careful, there are lethal voltages in there!)...

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.
