It's definitely worth your time and the results are amazingly good.

I did take it to one gig - a wedding in a small room - but after the dance floor filled up, the VT30 ran out of power, so to speak.

There's a good website that is dedicated to this series of amps, so it's easy to find mods, program settings and tips.

I just picked up this little beauty a couple weeks ago from a local guitar shop. I really love the built in 22 amp settings as well as an integrated effects pedal. Saves a ton of money. The 30 watt power supply is plenty of volume for practicing or a small gig.

The only words of caution I would have are this: 1. There isn't a line-out (other than the headphone jack) so you can't use this as just a pre-amp and run it to a sound board or anything; you would have to still get an effects pedal if you needed it for that, 2. It isn't made for huge gigs, 30 watts is plenty of power at home and at church but if you're playing big gigs with a crazy drummer, you're going to want to go with something with some more oomph.

Overall I love this amp. You can't beat the price; so it is a wonderful value and a trusted brand.

The VT30 is an amazingly versatile amp whether your music stylings are tame or raunchy. While it offers lots of guitar models and presets, the beauty of this amp is found when you explore in manual mode. To me all those amp models represent nothing more than a starting point to find what works for me on any given day. I find something in the ballpark of what my ears want to hear, and then I dial in the rest with the gain and tone controls. The attentuator allows me to keep it quiet when needed, and yes you can dial the models to emulate tube break up... i.e. play softy for cleaner tone, and dig in when you want some edgy crunch.

One trick I learned is to run the guitar through a clean overdrive pedal (I use a Bad Monkey) into the amp to smooth out high gain chords and blissfully fatten the high gain leads. While the amp is great already, the overdrive just makes it that much closer to perfection for high gain settings.

I tried a couple different amps in this class and the VT30 had the best sound overall. Now, I'm not a big 'modeling' fan, but there's some pretty radical sounds available. I bought this amp basically to take to rehearsals in small rooms and to record with in my home studio. I did take it to one gig - a wedding in a small room - but after the dance floor filled up, the VT30 ran out of power, so to speak. It has one of the best sounding on-board 'verbs I've ever heard. There's an awful lot to play with in terms of effects and different amp settings....maybe too much so. I find myself generally defaulting to the "blackface" amp model. I sprung another $60 for the footswitch, but that proved to be a waste. There's a definite delay and volume drop when switching presets, and setting 3 different volumes for each "patch" can be tricky. I put a heftier speaker in my VT30 as the stock one was a bit "thin". Tried to put a JBL E-110 in but it wouldn't fit. Settled for an Eminance Patriot. This is a terrific sounding little amp, but with one major problem that kept me from giving it 5 stars, and that is the noise. I don't know if it's the 12AX7 preamp tube or a noisy IC or transistor, but it is annoying. Fortunately, on the back of the amp there is yet another volume control, referred to as "power" output, that if you turn down a bit, it will help reduce the noise. Of course, you must make up the gain with the master volume control. Even with the power control totally off, there is still a bit of hum, probably from an inadequately designed power supply/recifier circuit. I wish the controls were front-mounted so you could adjust easier while "in the line of fire" from the speaker. For $240, this amp is unbeatable.

I've found this to be my perfect practice amp because of it's sound, size and versatility. Tube purists might have the same complaints on modeling that they have with all modeling amps, namely that at very delicate attacks the effects can't decide whether they're on or off, but that's subtle and at very, very low thresholds, in my opinion, and hardly ever a meaningful factor. I've used the headphone out with an adapter for direct recording to an interface with very good results, though 1/4 outs for that would have been nice. It has plenty of punch for its size and never gives me that cold digital feeling. In short, I'm thrilled with this thing generally, but especially on a price-performance basis.

I bought this little beauty as a super handy, lightweight practice amp I can just throw in the car and go. What I discovered is an amp that sounds way better than it has any right to for this cheap a price (I paid around $280 new on eBay). Sure, it's not as bulletproof as bigger amps so you have to treat it carefully. The stock speaker is harsh and overly bright, but it actually cuts through a band amazingly well for it's size if you just want a raunchy rock/metal amp. I enjoy a much more upscale overdrive sound ala Robben Ford (my other amp is a Fuchs Overdrive Supreme!). I ran the Vox headphone output into the effects return of the Fuchs one day, and I couldn't believe how nice it sounded! The first few models on the dial bring up some very sweet sounding clean tones and some delicious overdriven Fenders - the Super Reverb overdriven is a standout. The AC 30s are both awesome, both clean and overdriven. I'm not a metal fan, but some of the really heavy super distortion tones are actually a lot of fun. And all those effects, while not having a lot of flexibility, are easy to use and sound very good. I eventually stuck an Eminence Ramrod speaker in this baby, which really tames the harsher digital overtones of the amp and makes it really sweet. Another nice thing is the Ramrod is much more efficient than the stock speaker, and is almost as loud, even at 8 ohms/15 watts (the stock speaker, as per the owner's manual, is 4, yes four, ohms, which pushes the amp to 30 watts). It's plenty loud with just the Ramrod for rock band practice, but for fun, I went ahead and added an external speaker jack (I am a bit of a tinkerer), so now I can hook up an additional, hi-quality 8 ohm speaker cabinet to use all 30 watts, providing more clean headroom and a serious bottom end.Read more ›
