I've been needing a new practice amp for awhile and have been considering the AD30VT-XL. Just curious if anyone here owns one and can give me an idea on the pros and cons of it. I went to Vox's website and can't find the XL series. I have heard rumors of some people experiencing problems with the XL. Did Vox pull it or is their web development team just too lazy to update their site?

I have the AD30VT and love it. It's a great practice amp and you can do a lot with it. Some of the effects are a bit digital but this amp will pretty much create any tone/sound you want.

Some claim it's not "metal" enough, thus the XL series, but I'm not sure why they are no longer on their web site huh.gif I haven't heard if it was discontinued or not but let me do some digging and see if I can find anything. A friend of mine has an XL I'll check with him.

I've heard nothing but the good words for this amp. I think it is the best choice in that price category. I've played 50W combo version in studio and it is very cool, does the job just fine. Nice warm tone, and good all-arounder for the price.

The thing I liked about it (and the other Vox amps) is that it has power level control on the rear. Supposedly it allows you to play the amp at a low volume but experience the full effect as if you had it turned up. Any truth to this?

Not really. This feature is only important with all tube amps, doesn't make any considerable difference with solid state amps, or hybrid amps.

I had one of these, nice amps and the in built effects arent bad, but they dont take pedals well so its best used on its own, a great trait in a practice amp anyway!

Thanks for the feedback everyone. Hopefully I'll be picking one up soon.
