I'm looking at and trying to decide between either a Vox Valvetronix XL 15, 20, or 30 or a Roland Cube 30X.

My budget is about $300
I play metal, like Metallica and Rammstein
The main use will be Bedroom practice and playing for friends at parties.

I've heard that the XL versions of the valvetronix are worse than the originals, even when it comes to hi-gain stuff. Any truth to this?

Can someone help me out in deciding?

Roland would be perfect. they say the XLs have bad cleans.

The roland? what's a roland??? sounds like a crappy amp to me...

lol, just joking with you... the reason I was interested in the Vox was it was 100 bucks less which is very good considering I have to buy new football cleats this weekend too,

why only those two?

do you think a Crate, Vypyr or Superchamp would work for example? Ok, maybe not the Superchamp. he he


I checked out the crate and vypyr, I guess I wasnt considering them because A) theyre not at the store I went to... B) vox and cube are some of the most popular and acclaimed practice amps out there for my style...

so, the vypyr has lots of modeling... does that include a rectifier?

not sure but Thefrigginbob did a nice write-up in the Ultimate Peavey Vypyr Thread.

and hot damn i don't want to get called out for recommending these two only I'm just throwing stuff out there that might work to see if you can expand options. I respect the fact that neither were in the store and playing is believing. Some are simply saying that the Vypyr is blowing away the Roland Cube and Valvetronix.

I personally have not played any of these so please don't listen to me.

hahaha

i was actually calling myself out. i just told someone else to expand their list and they were asking about a Crate vs Vyper. I'm just asking people to expand beyond 2 choices unless they have truely gone from a long list and narrowed down to two.
cheers and good luck
