How good is this line of amps? thinkin about getting the 50 watt one, it's $380. I play metal and shred. Would this be a good amp for me? If there's better in the price range I'd like to know.

there great amps for the price, yea if you are gigging then get the 50 watt version but if not then 30 just like said in the above post.
i plan on getting the fifty watt soon.
they have a power attenuator which is awesome and come damn close to tube tone.

So I can switch it back and forth between making it sound like a tube to a solid state right? That's one of the main reasons I'm looking at this amp.

Tube amps are warmer, Solid States are harsher. Atleast to my ears

well i have the 100 watt one, and yeah its a good amp for the price. its not gonna beat the sound of a marshall or anything, but its still a good amp. you also might be interested in the newer valvetronix xl. its designed for metal. i haven't tried it, but i would have checked it out if it was around when i got my amp.

I notice you've got a GT6, Maybe look at an Atomic. The 18 watts is like $70 more and it will certainly get you the volume.

Ah $120 more. prices went up since the last time I looked.

It's a solid state amp with a single tube as a slave power amp.


The non-XL version is good for up to thrash and can get a nice chunk with a boost.


No experience with the XL.


Good buy for the money.

Could it pull off a Pantera tone?

^If you're looking at mostly playing metal, I'd be more inclined to look at a Roland Cube 60.

but I'm not, I just wanna make sure it can handle the metal that I like to play. Thanks for your help everyone, I'll check one out

Gotcha. Well, I would say the Vox is more capable of blues, classic rock type of tones, but can do more modern and metal tones, too.
The Cube is better at higher gain and metal tones, but is also capable of blues and classic rock.

you bastard.. way to get me thinkin about something else. I guess I already have a Fender for the softer stuff, maybe get the Cube for some metulz!!! lol

until my dad told me he would help me get a real tube amp as a birthday present, I was about to buy either this or a roland cube 60. These are really good amps for what you pay, that is if you want a british voiced amp.

The clean tone on the Valvetronix with chorus and reverb is godlike. With my stock Schecter Omen Extreme I can get the tone of the intro of Pull Me Under brilliantly.

I use a Vox amp, AD15VT to be exact, great effects, great distortion and clean, two channels + the preset = 3 channels for saving guitar sounds...i highly prefer Vox
