i'm upgrading from a 15w mg, i just need something around 15w or less. which is better a vox ad15vt or valve king royal 8? they are both $200 but are there anything better?
I dont know.. but.. Here in peru can find one for 30 bucks or less... (is not a joke)
Good Luck..
VKR would be better....but check out the epi valve junior too
Stage Rig

Fender Strat
Epi Les Paul
Taylor 110
Boss TU-2
Omega Amps Hot Rod Deluxe (Dumble mod)
Clean/Drive/More Drive footswitch
Mid boost/Preamp boost footswitch

Save up and get a better amp. Upgrading from a practice amp to another practice amp is pretty pointless. Save up like 500 and get like a 30 or 50 watt tube combo.

Valve Junior is good but it's not easy to get what you want out of (it's more of a project amp). The Royal 8 is pretty good, but I'd say in terms of practice amps the Roland Cube 30x has these beat.

What do you play? What kind of guitar do you have?

Good for you. Have a cookie.

But really... there's no cookie. And if there was, you wouldn't get one.
i play alternative, progressive, and some bassy metal, but actually i play a lot of genres so i might want versatility
It might be slightly more than $200 but I'd highly suggest...

Epiphone Valve Jr +
Weber Mini Mass Attenuator +
Pedal of your choice for tone = Heaven

Just my .02

Roland Microcube but I'm not sure what the price is.

Great practice amp.

Good Luck..

this guy is telling the truth
i gues, i live un peru and you can find some crasy deals around here

TS i woudl suggest you tu buy a 30watts laney or a vox
they are 2 good choices and 30watts amps usually come with a 10" speaker wich makes a fuller sound compared to 8" speakers

If you're getting a practice amp with the idea of upgrading to a tube later, I would get the AD15. It'll offer you a greater variety of tones and has a headphone jack perfect for a practice amp. Once you settle on the main tones you want, you can pick out a good tube amp that produces them natively.
