I am using a Fender Standard Telecaster with 2 Hot Standard Tele Single-Coil Pickups. I play a lot of classic rock like Led Zeppelin to Guns N' Roses. I think that because of the many different amp models and effects, it makes it easy to get the sound of my favourite guitarists as long as I tweak the amp to the right settings. I find that the distortion handles mid-gain distortion quite well. The amp has a very clear sound which is very good for clean stuff.
Overall Impression — 8
I play a lot of classic rock, but I also play many different other styles like blues and some metal and this amp handles them well. I have been playing guitar for 3 and a half years, a year being an acoustic player. I own a Fender Standard Telecaster, Squier Affinity Stratocaster, Fender Frontman 15G, DigiTech DF-7 and a Dunlop GCB-95 Crybaby along with the Vox AD15VT I am reviewing about. I don't think there is anything I wish I'd asked before buying this amp because I am very pleased about it. If it were stolen/lost, I would definately buy this amp again, but maybe a Roland Cube instead if I didn't. What I love about this amp is that I can play in so many styles of music and in many different tones of artists. I love the amp models and I find that I use the UK 70's and UK 80's a lot as they are good models. One thing I didn't like is that it didn't come with a foot Switch pedal which would have been useful. I wish it had that, and some more knobs for presence etc. and some more effects and have two effect knobs so you can combine more to your choice.
Reliability & Durability — 9
I think that I can depend on this amp. I have only purchased it recently, but this amp seems very dependable and I would use it in a gig without a backup. This amp seems very reliable and I don't see it ever braking down on me for a long time as it seems very durable.

The Vox AD15VT is made in 2004. I think that this is very versatile and is able to play any genre of music. Though it is not the greatest for metal, it can still get a sound for it. The amp had 11 different amp models and 11 different effects. This makes is what makes it so versatile. There are 2 channels that you can save your own settings onto using the 'write' button. Unfortunately, a channel foot Switch is not included so if you don't buy one, it will be slightly irritating. There is also a headphone jack and a line out. It has an amp, gain, volume, treble, middle, bass, effects and a master volume knobs. There is also a bypass Switch which will leave out the extra effects. The amp is a 15 watt modelling amp. I use this amp as a practice amp at home and I find that this is too loud for home practice. Though I don't gig, I think that it would be powerful enough for small shows.
