My one and only amp, it's served me extremely well these past five or six years. Built like a tank, a variety of tones and styles all in one knob. Planning a few upgrades in order to breathe some new life into it and get it as close to an AC30 sound as I can: change the preamp tube to the AC30's Tung Sol 12AX7; change the speaker to either the AC30's Celestion Greenback or a Weber Blue Pup; make some cosmetic changes like putting in a new grille and adding the gold fascia strip + white piping.
I bought this because a friend sold it when i was struggling to find a cheap amp. Even second hand this amp has not let me down, great tones for older styles. Since I play alot of metal, I turn on the great clean channel and run my pedal through, giving me whatever tone I want. I've found myself enjoying this amp more than some 100 watts
this amp has a lot of classic tones from your original vox cleans (full sounding to thin twang) your mid-rang rock punch (dampened amp designs for mono rock to 'ed van halen' loud and high sound , good for pig squeals) and your metal tones full of bass response and can cut through with ease. this is a tube amp not a solid state, it fills up a room i really like this amp when i play with just a drummer. good buy will set you ahead of the crowd. great for song writers that like to move between genres. make sure you grab the foot switch that comes with it. hope to someone make use of one of these.
This was my first amp. It is a hybrid so you still get a very nice natural tube sound from it. The modeling effects are alright but they don't compare to a full set of pedals. This amp is a very nice gateway to find what you really need/want. The tone control knobs are very responsive and with the different amp choices you can get some very nice sounds.
in the practice you can find a lot of sounds and eqs, in a little concerts this amp can save your life. The VT30´s versatility is an advantage by the incorporated amps and guitar effects... It´s a little piece from heaven...
