Say hello to my little friend...

After playing several tube combo amps, I fell in love with the Vox. And yes I plan on playing a lot of Beatles on it.

Matchless DC30 all the way... (If I could afford one, but I have the clone of it for now, Bugera BC30) Does rock, blues... has its own unique sound due to it having 2 different speakers. You would definitely need a large area, ain't no apartment amp.
