Hey i have an epi LP ultra.... Use a roland cube 30x and would liek to upgrade a bit.... I just play a lot of guitar by myself in my basement or jam with other friends. I have a digitech rp-80 if i want to mess around with effects or whatever. Tried a vox in the store and was impressed but don't know if its really a step up from my cube. I'd really like a good smaller tube amp with good tone... Play rock, classic rock, alternative and some metal like metallica. Could use some help. Sorry forgot to put my budget would prob be 500... hope thta helps suggestions

the valvetronix wouldn't be a step up really from your cube. keep saving up, and shoot for amps such as:

http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Peavey-Classic-30112-Tube-Amp-Combo-?sku=481014X

and boost them with overdrive pedal will get you some metal tones.

i was thinkin maybe a crate or peavey.... the classic 30 better than the valveking

imo, the classic 30 blows away the valveking, stock.

only if you needed some sort of metal tone, an overdrive could push the gain up there. other than that, it has enough gain for blues up to hard rock.
