    Valvetronix sound great I have the ad100vt now and used to have the ad30vt

    My wattage control pot is scratchy and unstable so I dont use it often, the ad50vt is the one I want to have instead honestly

    Valvetronix do sound great, especially cranked up. The attenuator is a filter to a great extent. If I'm doing low volume work, the Mustangs work much better for me, even with their sonic limitations. I'm thinking of building my own simple 1 watt valve amp and using a multi-pedal for all of the effects.

    Have you tried a cleaning-lubricating spray on it ?

    Neither, I just turn it a lot and it doesnt help, when I get home Im going to spray DeOxit D5 in it and twist it

    You know one time my friend had plugged into one of my guitars and had a cutting out signal on another amp and I had no idea until I unplugged the jack. The cable had gotten dusty an entire dustbunny was on the jack lol, easy fix

    well i ve had mustangs and there fine if your a fender tone fan.....me i wanted cleans and zztop ronnie montrose too...i use the Marshall code 50 which is very light and plenty loud to play out with...i have to admit i didnt like any of the factory preset tones...but in less than 30 min i had several that range from cleans to searing Gary Moore tones... i use it my weekly blues jams.. now i took the electronics out and mounted them in an open back bluesbreaker single 12 cab with a 75 watt WGS Celestion clone spkr....but hey thats just me...anyways i have the code 25 also very small and you could use it for smaller gigs..used ones are cheap ($200 for the 25 watter...)my code 50 after mods was about $675, but the original cab is fine even. The best advice is for you to tryout what is suggested here and others, after all what your reading here is just other peoples opinions...see what YOU like...good luck with your search codebreaker 50 A25.jpg
