I owned a Vox AD series amp. I can assure you once the gimmick wears off you will be disappointed with your tone. It's simply a "poser" valve amp. It's not terrible or anything there are just lots of better choices out there for the money.

Its pretty good, you basically get what you pay for. Cheaply built in china. But otherwise its good, be sure to get a speaker swap though. As the built in speaker just blows. Cleans are decent, not sterile sounding. While the lead is mid-gain? Which is also alright for what your paying. Its the best deal for you for the money your willin to spend at the moment.

Valveking is not in the same price range as those amps if you live in Australia (which really annoys the heck out of me). You can get a new Peavey Bandit for $500AU where as a new Valveking is about $900AU. (I emphasize, AUSTRALIAN DOLLARS, though last time I checked $1AU = $0.92US, the prices are a rip-off)

If the price is around the same, go for Valveking, it's all tube, if you have sucky prices like in Australia and don't wanna go used, go for the Bandit (the new series with the peavey oval badge), I've only heard good things about the Bandit.
