Thanks, I'll check out the VOX amps too.Make sure you check out the Vox modelling amps too I used to own an AD50VT and it was simple to use, great for recording and the onboard effects were a nice addition too. Make sure you really want a modelling amp before you buy though, tube amps really aren't high maintenance and they sound so much better.
For valve/tube amps, by "high maintenence" I meant that they cost a lot, and after you've bought it, the expense doesn't stop because the valves need replacing occasionally. Also, from what I've seen, most tube amps run with a bunch of different pedals for the effects, and I don't have the money for a bunch of pedals.
Someone please correct me if I have made a misconception on this... I don't wanna buy based on incorrect facts. :S
