For those who have experience with both, what are your opinions of either amp lines?
I don't own either, but i've played through a few of the new Supros. They sound and feel really good. I like 'em so much that the new Black Magick will almost certainly be my next amp. It's actually pretty hard to find any negative comments on them from people who actually own one. No doubt someone will pop into this thread and moan about build quality because they're not hand-wired, but if guys like Joe Perry and Richard Fortus are happy enough touring with them then that's good enough for me, especially when you consider the other amps those guys use.
Vox HW series for long term ownership and ease of service and upgrades.
Personally, I would still take it to my tech for a pre-flight check-over.
I'd have to see the Vox's guts first.
I've had the Morgan AC20 and his version of the Supro. IMO, I feel the Supro really took to pedals better. The AC20 sounded amazing, but was a little more finicky with pedals.
Straight up, no pedals... you won't be disappointed with either. I actually ran them at the same time... pretty awesome!
Pretty clean turret board built.
Only hearing minor issues with cheap jacks and switches working loose.
That's why I'm saying pre-flight check recommended, but not bad.
Some components could be upgraded over time, but the build makes that really easy.
I confess, I have not seen under the tube tray which would be cool to see.
There's a new Head Version, AC30HWH that would be the smartest buy.
The combos are beasts to haul.
OK...Vox HW for the win!
Full disclosure: I own an AC15HW1x but am gasing for a Supro after seeing some videos. Was wondering what a Supro is going to excel at that my Vox can't do (and vice versa). I'll probably stick with my Vox though, it's a great amp.
