Marshall vs Vox

Recommended Posts

Marshall

nuff said

plus, I have never really liked Vox. Not heavy enough fro me. I like a good sounding overdrive with a good kick. Vox never provided that for me.

VOX AC30 yeah!

i love mine, personally i wouldn't shell out money for a marshall unless i needed the volume of a 100watt amp, and would buy a reissue 1959SLP. or even a Metropolus copy.

here is me with my Fender Esquire (single pickup telecaster ala jeff beck era yardbirds) And some of the Amp in the backgronud of playing with the band.

I have owned several amps over the years. When I was young and on the road with my band in the late 70's early 80's, I had a HiWatt 100w w/4x12 cab paired with a Les Paul. Loved the sound, much warmer than a Marshall, even though we were playing a lot of Zeppelin at the time. Now I have a Line6 and play an '81 BC Rich Eagle. Love them both. The range of sounds I can get is amazing and I don't have to drag around an effects board. My son uses a small Marshall and loves it but is also coming around to liking my Line6.

"There is no better or worse, just your opinion" Derek Trucks

I think thats what he said, im not ever sure if it is Derek or not, but its somethin along those lines, i was just trying to remember it from an interveiw, but basically, just try them both, neither is better than each other, it is all based on your opinion, if u like Vox, stick with it, same with Marshalls. In my personal opinion i like Marshalls, that doesnt mean they are better than Vox.

Hi all,

For shits and giggles, a stock 1988 Squire (yes, a cheap-ass Squire)Telecaster flogged within an inch of its life! (my bar band 1995.)

Holy Batman!Ev,that rocks! A Squire? A left handed bassist? And you have long hair!! :D

What was your rig?Sounds fantastic!!!! :yay:

I've never really been a fan of Marshall, and I haven't played through enough Vox amps to really be able to pass judgement on them. I personally love Traynors...especially the early-mid 70's models.

I have a Traynor YCV50 Blue, that I love, but I just upgraded to the new Marshall line to have more gain, and 3x the channels

I was wantin to get a Vox to run in tandem with the Traynor, but the AC30 had virtually no balls, at least compared to the Traynor.

I think a Vox could be your best buddy, if you are a knob turner, but thats just not my style. I like to plug and play, and get right down to business.

For my money, no Vox can compare to a newer Marshall.
