Which one should i get? I heard the 10" speaker breaks up early so i am considering the V16? What do you guys think? Is there a lot of differences in the tone for both or are they the same?

Yeah the v16 will be better, more watts means cleaner sounds at higher volumes, not so muddy etc.

^ so there's not a lot of differences? Just that the fine tuning is better in V16?
Well i have Boss GT-8 so i don't need to use the EQ in the amp....

oooh..well ive heard that multi effect pedals dont do so well on tube amps.

thts why im selling mine

Just get the V8! I love mine and its really all you need for practice. Use the extra money to buy a MXR 10 band Eq or a OD pedal.
#7
^ can it go over drum? Small gig maybe?

Not, true... u just got to know how to use the multi fx, and i have a great multi fx... Did you know Marty Friedman uses Boss GT-8? So its on the player not the effect itself. You can have a single one but if you don't know how to set it up, you will get a mess up sound or sound you didn't want.

The V8 wont go over drums or Gig but you didnt say you wanted that. V16 for that but I havent heard that one so I cant recomend.
#9
I used to play a V16, with no effects or boosts, in a 5-piece band situation. Never had to worry about being heard. I'd reccomend it, unless you have no plans or any gigging or the like.

One caution: it'w hard to get clean cleans at high volume.
#10
well i have a Peavey classic 50 for gigs, just wonder if V8 can do it because i like its light weight feature. Hmmm i guess i got to just try them.... hopefully V16 isn't too loud for home use I know V8 isn't (idon't really know so i really got to try them). I was just really concern about the speaker, because 10" might break up to early? Do you guys think it can be replace with 12"?

On what? v8 or v16?

5 watts into a 10 inch speaker is fine...but how do you mean "break up"? My friend trashed a ****ty stock 10" speaker, but he was running a Big Muff Pi full out into a fully cranked amp, with an acoustic-electric guitar. (A/E's have CRAZY high output preamp systemps).

If you mean "break up" as in "the speaker cone tears and is ruined", then you really don't need to worry. if you mean "break up" as in "I hear more distortion", then...you might want the V16, because there's not a lot of clean headroom at all on the V8, comparitively.

Stick to the V16. Shoving a 12" speaker into the V8 isn't a good idea; I seem to remember the cab being too small to accept it, and you have to remember that a 12" inch speaker is bigger around than a 10", but also protrudes into the back of the amp more. I think a 12" speaker would nudge against the OT, or possibbly the Reverb Tank.

PS: the V16 is portable enough. if you REALLY want portable, get a Champ 600.
#12
If you're looking for a more portable jamming option, go for the V16. You'll be in constant danger of being completely drowned out using a 5W amp. Both amps are loud for home use, but both have master volume controls for preamp OD at respectable levels.
You Don't Need a halfstack.

You Don't Need 100W.

#15
bump... tried the v16, loud as hell at volume 1 LOL seriously . But the v8, they the GC i went to didn't have one. So yes i am definately going to get the v8, hopefully it isn't half as loud as the v16.

But ya i didn't see a fx loop for the v16 nor a line out, where the hell is the line out?

^Dude how do you get some gain in that amp? i had it in volume 1 in guitar center (lol, cause it was so loud), and i put the gain all way 12, didn't get any distortion what so ever, i even mess with the EQ still didn't get any.

What is your obcession with an effects loop?

If you don't turn it up a bit, you won't hear any gain at all. Get the volume to at least 2 or 3, and then crank the gain.

I have a GT-8, and with my Peavey Classic 50 having a fx loop, its sound better plug in there - a lot better- than just putting it in the input jack.

16 watt tube would be enough for very small gigs but thatd be pushing it a lil

itd have more headroom than the v8 though

personally id go with the v16

so v8 is enough. I think i can crank it easier without getting too loud unlike the v16

Yup I got Jan '08 on sale at GC for $ 399. I hate to say it but the Palomino has a sweeter tone than my Fender amps

My Strats and LP sound so thick and the sustain chimes like an angel.
