I'm on a really tight budget, but i'm looking into getting a tube amp to replace my Spider.. I'm considering these two, and i need to know the pros and cons of each. is it worth the money to get the 112? or should i save my money and spent the saved money on pedals? I really want a really versatile tube amp, i like to play alot of different stuff, alot of cleans, along with alot of metal, like Metallica and even as heavy as LoG and CoB.

what is this amp for? practice or gigging? 50 watts is probably too much for just bedroom practice. the amps your talking about are very far apart power wise

Yeah, it would probably be mainly used for practice and bedroom playing, but i'm not sure how soon i would be gigging, and it i would need to a buy a new amp for it idk..
But for now, it would just be practice and bedroom playing.

in that case why not go in between? 20-30 watts? ideal for bedroom practice and more than enough for a medium sized gig

I'm thinking 500 or under, yet 500 is kinda pushing it.

i love my vk112.

it is a little loud for bedroom practice, but it just sounds amazing when i play with friends and stuff. I played it tonight at church for the first time and i had to turn it down when it was on 4. It sounds amazing though.
Woohoo.

yes, yes it can i have to play w. it under one, but it sounds a little compressed. When i get to turn it up to one of more it really opens up.

Yeah, it sounds nice quiet, but it truly SHINES when you put it past 5.
