Hi I'm looking to get my first amp and have it be for practice and playing in front of maybe 20 people in a room layer when I get better. I'm wondering which amp you think I should get based on the followin:

Its mainly for practice. I want it to last a while. I want effects which both have. I want it to have a good range and good tone. I want it to fit the type of music I will be playing.

I want to play classic rock such as led Zeppelin, cream, rolling stones and red hot chili peppers. I willmost likely be playing through a fender mim fat strat.

P.S. Please don't tell mejust to go try it. I will, I just want to have a good idea of what I want when I go there.

Vox. Also, the Cube 20 is bad, if you want a Cube, either Micro or 30 (or 60), but not 20 or 15.

Get the Vox AD15VT, it's more suited for that.

Vox.

And (not to the TS) unless you don't know how to move knobs on the amp, it can easily do metal on it, I really don't see how people can say the Vox doesn't have that much gain on it. They must be high or need so much gain to cover up their mistakes because they're not that great of a player.

i dont have much money so do you t hink it would be worth it to save for the vox? Also, which is more versatile and can play more different styles? Also which has better cleans?

The Vox is more versatile and is more geared towards people that play lower gain stuff, though it can get heavy as I've already said.

The vox doesn't do metal well at all. I had one for a while and my micro cube does metal much better. But for clean the vox is very good indeed

Yeah the vox definatly has decent distortion as well as good cleans, the Vox is DEFINATLY a more classic rockish type of amp
#13
ok the vox is sounding pretty good. The only thing that the cube is drawing me in with is the acoustic feature but does anyone know if that's any good? I guess I dont really need it though and I would rather go with an overall good amp

The Vox's cleans are really really good, all the amps on it are really, except UK 70's which is crap
