I am just starting to learn to play and I don't have much money to spend. I have a Squire Fender Strat that I have begun to modify a little at a time to obtain the best tone possible goalwise. I must choose between a slightly used Vox VT15 valvetronics, or a Fender FM 15R for the same amount of money. I really like the frontman's reverb, and tone, and that it's a Fender amp, but I also like the different amp models from the Vox. If I had the money I would probably just have a Fender '57 Tweed Champ for the rest of my life and, I one day I plan to build one. I love the tone from those vintage tweed amps. To me the frontman has that classic fender tone to it, albeit, not the tone quality of a real champ or tweed deluxe, but still fenderish. Does the Vox have the real 57 Deluxe tone, I know that's one of the feature modelled amps on it's settings? This will be an amp that I will sit on my front porch with my feet propped up on and play classic rock, blues, and a 'lil country on for only my pleasure, I have no delusions that I will ever be talented enough to play a gig even in a run down bar. If I do get good enough for that in some years, I'll buy a new amp then, LOL. Which amp do you experienced guys think would be my best choice for what I'm wanting to do? I'm truely torn here. Thanks in advance for any help.
