So, in order to afford my Mesa Mark V, I sold both of my other combos (also Mesa's). This left me without any "grab and go" type amp, which I do, on occasion, have a use for. I started looking around Craigslist and a decent looking little combo popped up, right in my town. It's a VOX VT50. These are hybrid modelers, using one 12AX7, much like the Valvestate. I was actually hoping to find one of those, but this was such a deal (I think). An older guy, that salad it was a bit too complicated for him had it, and he brought it to me, along with the factory foot switch, and a copy of the manual. No pictures as yet, and I already made one mod. The grilles on these are a chrome plated, expanded metal. I flipped it over, and painted it black. To me, it looks better, but not as nice as some actual speaker cloth would. Anyways, playing through it, it doesn't sound too bad, and you can bypass the models if desired. So far, my favorite is based on a Silver Jube, but all are a bit too much on the bottom end.
