I have been looking to replace my current amp and I have come down to two that I am having a tough time deciding on. Wether or not to go with the Vox Valvetronix AD50VT or The Roland Cube. If You Could Help Me Out A Bit It Would Be Much Appricated.

Get the Vox. It has a better tone to my ears, and it actually uses a real tube in the pre-amp section. :icon_thum

I have purchased the Vox and let me tell, the word awsome does not even come close to fully explaining how nice this amp sounds

The Cube is built like a tank, and can be abused, taken gigging, etc.
The Vox has been known to have numerous problems in that category....

As for tone, ive played through a cube 60 for a bit, and i own an AD50Vt, and the AD destroys the cube for tone.

I had a Vox AD15VT then returned it for a Vox AD100VT
I have never heard so many true-to-life amp similations.
The AD30 and up has a Wattage control. So, you can set it at 1 watt and crank it up. It's still pretty loud at 1 watt.

I tried the Cube 60 last year and it was on my "to get" list, until I came across the Vox AD VT Valvetronix series.

By the way, the tube is not in the pre-amp, but in the power section. If you "line out", the tube is bypassed.

Pricing: VOX wins.
Amp Models: I like what I hear with Vox. Can't really comment about Cube, as it was OK, but Vox was real.
I just might get another AD15VT for hacking around on. Only downfall is it doesn't have the wattage control.

Hmmm. I just bought the ad30vt-XL tonight and don't care for it at all. It's really fizzy sounding on the top end, very solid state. Returning it tomorrow.

The Cube however, has the phenomenal clean tone, and one very nice metal tone. Plus, I know the Cube is built like a tank because Roland and BOSS's reputation speak for themselves.
