Vox: AD50VT

You can use this amp to play probably any style imaginable. I mainly play indie rock which is easy to get out of one of 11 amp models. Most of the amp models will play cleanly if you turn down the gain and then over drive when you turn up the gain, just like on a fully tubed amp. This amp is really good if you want to play a variety of different styles but also if you only play one then you can use this to model the amp that you would like to use (but cannot afford) as this sounds extremely extremely good for only 220!

Overall Impression — 10
I personaly think this is the best amp you could buy in the sub 350 market! I would certainly replace it if it was stolen.

Reliability & Durability — 10
I haven't had this amp very long but it looks extremely solid and having only one preamp tube means that it will probably not need servicing that often and wont cost very much.

The AD50VT is a digital modelling amp so as you can expect it has lots of features: 11 amp models ranging from AC30TB to US HiGain models, 11 effects including compressor, phaser and auto-wah. I found that most of the effects are perfectly good enough. The foot switch has two switchs, one to switch between to programable channels and one to bypass the effects or switch to manual mode (what you see is what you hear). This amp has one valve in the preamp which means it can make valve sounds. It has a line/phone output and a 8ohm speaker output. It can go very loud, I have never gigged it my self but it seems perfectly oloud enough in practises.
