i don't think theres any vox that is as bad as a marshall MG. i'm guessing either a DA15 or AD15VT
Rig Winter 2017:

Fender Jazzmaster/Yamaha SG1000
Boss TU-3, DS-2, CS-3, EHX small stone, Danelectro delay
Laney VC30-112 with G12H30 speaker, or Session Rockette 30 for smaller gigs
Elixir Nanoweb 11-49 strings, Dunlop Jazz III XL picks
Shure SM57 mic in front of the amp

For the love of christ, dont get an MG!!!!!!!!! I have one. Every time I play through it, a little part of me dies. Getting and MG30 just doubles the problem

I'd say the vox, but the DA15 aren't that great really. Deffinatly for the vox if you're talking about the AD15VT.

MG's aren't bad, the cleans are passable. But the distorion on them is terrible and if you want to turn it up then you can say hello to VERY unpleasent tinitus.

I bought the mg half stack and i have it running through my rack, it sounds pretty rad, I've played 3 shows with it, and it sounds better than alot of the other amps the bands, my band has played with does. The MG is a good amp, if you know how to work a amp head or if you don't get a hard on over a amp just b/c it's tube. a ss sounds just as good as a tube, just run it through a maximizer.

now, your situation, i've played through a couple of the smaller mg combos, and a few vox's. go ahead and get the vox, just don't let everyone else tell you that the mg is a bad amp, for future reference.

You lost me at "I bought the mg half stack"

I'm sorry but what? I had the misfortune of trusting a so-called friend of mines judgement and bought the MG halfstack also because I didn't have any manner of tonal ear at all, that soon changed 2 weeks later when I played a gig and heard the volume over 2 when all the really bad hissing began. The MG is not a good amp, there is a good reason why 99% of guitar players all agree on this, and terrible tone is just the start.

Though if you like your own sound, great, all the best to ya. (why do I feel an argument is about to ensue)

*facepalm*
I tried out the halfstack in a store just to see if it was any better than the smaller ones. Nope... Same sound.
Me plugging into my 20 buck radio sounds better than an MG.
Seriously, I was at my friends house, plugged my guitar into the alarm clock/radio I brought, and it sounded better than an MG! It was real quiet though.
