I am looking for an amp with a little more grit with a more usuable volume level. I am interested in this little combo by Vox. How does it sound? How responsive is the amp to pedals, guitar volume, etc. How are the cleans? Anyone upgrade the tubes yet? I currently have a Hot Rod Deville 2X12 that is 60 watts, and loud enough to fill an arena about 3-4 on the volume. Futhermore, it is clean all the way through, unless I use the "DIRTY" channel, which sounds like a solid state amp to my ears. Now I have read the posts on here already, I am looking for something a little more in depth. After reading this, please feel free to suggest to not buy the Vox and save up for XXXX amp (Top Hat, Dr Z, Naylor, /13 would be a long term investment, this Vox seems like the quick way to change) Here is what I am currently using G&L ASAT Special Semi-Hollloow > Burriss Boostiest > DD5 > Voodoo Labs Trem > DD-20 > Hot Rod Deville. Simple setup. Not too much in the way. I want to get a more U2-ish/Wilco-ish tone. And the fender is great, but the tone still bores me. The Boostiest did improve the overall tone, but I am still not happy with the straight,clean tone. Picky, picky. Lastly, I am going to add a MI Audio Crunch Box, Skreddy Mayo, MoFaux, and a Reverb pedal into the mix (RV3 or RV5 or a Holy Grail), so I am trying to think about my amp upgrade with this in mind. Thanks for reading!
