They are pretty simular. They both have a lot of effects and sounds but which would you recomend? Currently I'm using my friends Roland Cube 15x and I love it (seriously) but I was thinking of getting the 30x for myself. What do you think?
#3
wat kind of stuff u play? if ure into metal, then i guess the cube30 would be better because of the rfier model. im using a 30x btw and its fuifiling my needs


the cube can do other stuff as well liek blues etc etc

Get the Valvetronix. Even if you play metal its better. i play mostly metal on mine.

The Vox is better. If you play metal, you'll want a distortion or overdrive pedal to make the sound sharper.

Isn't there a Valvetronix XL made for metal? Is that worth the extra money? or is it better spent on a distortion pedal?

i heard the XL isnt that good, id say that a regular one does great for everything. i have an AD30 and its great, i love the effects. and for metal just get a metal muff, mine works great with my valvetronix,

Well if you like the Cube 15x, then you'd really like the 30x since it has amp modeling and effects.

me too, its the best amp in its price range. I can get tones that beat out some amps in the 500 dollar range. it beats the **** out of MGs and Spiders. I think im gonna save for a Peavey or an ENGl or a Mesa tho.

US highgain is my favorite. It has kind of a Marshall/Mesa sound to it. Of course it sounds nothing liek a real mesa but its close enough for me.

The Cube sounds too digital. The Vox high gain distortion sucks. Choose whichever one.
#15
get the vox. theyre just so awsome and pretty versitile. the only thing it cant play is any really heavy music, but that can be fixed with a nice distortion pedal

Do not get the XL. That was a big mistake...

is the cube30 the one I have? check out my profile. If so, then if you play metal/grunge/post-grunge type stuff, I would recommend that for sure.

i like the high gain distortion channel. it depends on what kinda guitar your running through it. Its a bit week if your using quieter pickups but with an EMG equipped guitar it sounds great.

I have the 30 watt Vox Valvetronics and it has some amazing clean sounds. The different amp types are good for classic rock, but they dont really have enough treble for modern metal. I use the EH Metal Muff in front of my clean channel and it sounds great for practicing in my apartment (I use it through headphones and it still sounds good). I also use EMGs llike Fuzzbox said. Just dont get Boss Metal Zone it sounds really digital and the knobs are kind of weird to figure out, not the standard bass, mid treble. I used to use it but the Metal Muff is way better. I don't know about the VOX XL. It came out after I got mine, but I do know its $100 more. If you really want to spend the extra money, you can get a used 5150 combo from ebay for about $400. I have a 5150 combo and its killer, but its only really good for metal or hard rock. The clean kinda blows.

DO NOT under any circumstances get a Spider III. Trust me.

Putting that aside, I'd go with the Vox. I think it sounds a lot better than the Cube.

Cube! Its has a good metal tone and decent cleans.Vox has better cleans,but not the best metal selection...and dont forget about the dynamic channel on the Cube.

I just got a Vox AD30VT a few weeks ago and am really impressed with it so far. Upgraded from a crap MG10 and my brother with a Spider lll 75W (:p) was trying to get a good sound like his 'amazing line 6' that he spent forever getting a decent distortion channel on, and we discovered his was actually really muddy, haha.
Haven't tried the Cube but the Vox just plain old kicks ass. Great distortion, and very acceptable cleans. Can't go wrong with it. Got mine for $130 used also =)

I have Roland 30x and I just love it. There's nothing really bad about it I can come up with.

ive decided to get a vox for under $200 but i cant seem to decide whether i should get the AD15VT or th DA5.. ive hear there is a little difference in sound quality, advantage going to the AD15VT but the portability, size and battery powered capabilities of the DA5 make me interested in the DA5.. so at this stage im still undecided. can anyone help?
