well i went to guitar center the other day and i was looking for an amp as a beginning guitar player and i went with the intention of purchasing a roland microcube. when i got there, the salesperson was trying to "hustle" me a spider but i told him i didn't want one and then he led me over to a vox DA5 which was similar to the microcube and he convinced me to buy one and i tested both amps out and i liked the DA5 so i was getting ready to buy that. just out of curiousity though, i asked how much the 15 watt kind was and he directed me over to a Valvetronix AD15VT-XL which was on sale for 170 and it was quite appealing so i ended up purchasing that with an additional 25 dollars off with a gift card GC had sent me. now i want to know if i had made the right decision and was it the best decision i could have made? there is still a 30 day money back guaranteee and my price range is 170 so if there are anything else i could look at then please tell me. the Vox i bought has a 10inch speaker which is very nice compared to the 5in of the microamps and the 8in of the regular 15watters. its seems good enough as a starting amp to me as i want to play alot of classic rock, hard rock, and metal.


so what do you guys think? thanks for helping out.

It's a nice amp and should do you fine, that is until the GAS kicks in and you want a full stack. I liked the cubes better for metal, but it ought to be fine for practice.

Happy new amp day to you sir.

Really? Valvetronixs are pretty well respected as practice amps. I think you made a good choice, I wouldn't get a micro amp unless I need to carry it around. And even then, I wouldn't buy one so complicated, my crush 3r is plenty for playing on the go.

you made a good choice. those amps are great for practice. i actually had the 100 watt version for about a week, but it lost all its tone by the time it got to the level i needed it to be at. but for practice, its an amazing amp. i wish everyone could make a great choice like you did when starting out

well im just saying that as i turned it up it started lose the tone it had at low volumes. right now i have a peavey 5150 and the more i turn it up, the better it sounds. the vox sounded better up to a certain point, then started sounding worse. but id only worry about this if you would be gigging and playing with a band frequently.
