How does it hold up for metal/metalcore? i already have emgs on my hellraiser so that should help with the gain. also, how does it compare with the spider III which i have now...i know it sucks...you dont have to comment on that, just stay on topic. otherwise, would the valvetronix xl be better? anyone tried it? from the clips i've seen the numetal channel on the regular vt sounds pretty tight.

Ah yes, you have a condition that many guys live with and are affected by everyday. It's called a penis.

The Nu-Metal and High-Gain settings on the regular VT are great, the clean channel also allows for a large amount of distortion, and I'm pretty damn happy with it.

I'm with that guy.

For numetal type stuff, you don't need a lot of treble, but that is my only complaint with my VT...

They are better than the Spider, but it's still a very small step up. I think you should save for a good tube amp rather than wasting money on something you're going to want to upgrade again in the not too distant future.

generally speaking, vox for classic rock, blues, and some hard rock. and the cube for higher gain applications. screw the behringer.

Check out the new Vox VT
(called the XL I believe).
It's more high gain orientented.
#9
The XL is great. I play Indie type stuff mostly, but still enjoy rocking out. It suits clean, dirty and off-its-face-high-gain.

The high gain channels are considerably louder than the clean ones. Your neighbors won't like it one little bit

ive got the voxad50vt - its a VERY versatile amp you can play every style on it!!!
but i wouldnt recommend it for metal - its not that you cant play metal on it, but it doesnt sound too good....i bought a procorat and with this little item real metal was possible!!!

but if you really enjoy metal i would save up and buy an Engl screamer or fireball
thats what i did and i like my fireball so much!!!
my gear:

guitar: Schecter c1 classic
amp: Engl fireball
box: Engl v30 4x12
effects: g-major
in future: ESP eclipse, PRS Custom 24...
