Go with the cube. I have a micro cube, and a vox AD100VT, so i've experience them both. Either one will suit you, but i'd go with the cube.
#3
What do you play?


Overall, I'd say the Vox.

whered u get it from, cuz ive been lookin for a blem or refurb one but am havin trouble findin it + $300 is like maxin out my money and watnot which is y i was curious about the 30s

i heard to play with drums you need something about 50 or 60 watts, depending on how loud your drummer hits, but yeh i had a 30 watt and i couldnt play with drums , tried a 40 watt , still couldnt play with drums so probably going with the 60 watt cube would be a better choice or something even louder. But if your drummer has electric drums thats a whole diff story and normally depending on how big the place is they should mic up your amp especially if its not that big.

i got it on Musiciansfriend.com.
it was perfect timing too, i was planning on getting it and then the night i was going to order it, there was a blem.

i would recommend maybe visiting other sites like sweetwater, zzsounds, guitarcenter, music123 to see if maybe they have any available

Meh, you can play with a drummer with a 30 watter.

I jam with this chick who MASSACRES the drums and I can still drown her out if I feel like it.

lol
i think you should stick with the cube.
if you cant get a blem 60 just get the 30. and if you cant hear it over drums then you can just return it saying it sounded like **** or something.

Hey.! I have the same problem of u. Im not sure wether to chose roland cube 30or vox ad30vt . I play a lot of nirvana, and i think that vox can have a better sound than roland when it's hitting the maximum voltage . But i read some reviews about it and they say that after some time he starts to have problems with volume...=( here's the link if u want to check out...

So..good luck
