Apologies in advance for the melodrama. The Super Beetle sounded as good as I said it sounded.....but it developed a low volume running crackle. The crackle did not increase in volume when you turned the guitar up. When you turned the guitar up the guitar got louder and the guitar sounded great but there was always a gentle “crackle.......crack crack.......crackle.” I tried the amp in several rooms and the crackle was there. I carried a Pro Junior to the same rooms and it was dead quiet. I have Furman Power Conditioner in my mixer rack and I plugged the VOX into the power conditioner.....crackle crackle. I plugged in the Pro Junior.....dead quiet. When I moved the VOX from room I started to get paranoid because the head weighs about a pound. The power supply is like a laptop power supply. I started worrying about the longevity of the thing and if it could be repaired or it was more of cute throw away. It was almost $300. Then I thought that I wouldn’t throw it in my trunk and take it places as it was too adorable and fragile. I take Pathfinder 15R’s were ever I want and they’re indestructible. I did an about face and it started with the crackle. That one thing started a worry spiral and again....$300. It was second time that I’ve returned something at GC. It took a minute. They didn’t even look the amp over. It was painless. I’ve had a red Marshall Class 5 Combo and a Class 5 Head and C110 Cabinet on Craigslist. The Combo sold and I started thinking that a gigworthy Marshall Combo would be nice as I’m getting rid of 2 Marshall’s that aren’t really gig machines. The DSL 20C Combo is $600. Cascio Music had a Today-only 20% Flash sale. I called Al at Cascio. He had 3 of them and he verified the $480 (today). I like the DSL’s. I have the 15 watt head. A voice in my head said “get the real amp that you can gig with - you have 325 easy dollars, don’t pee it away”. The Marshall is EL 38 powered, has two channels, it will power 1 or 2 16ohm lines or 1 8ohm. It has a Celestion 70/80 (it’s ok). It has Reverb and the channel footswitch turns the effects loop on and off. It has 3 band EQ plus presence plus resonance. It sounds like spanky clean Marshall or a gainy Marshall. 36 pounds. I think this was a wiser long term investment. We don’t have a show until Halloween but I’m taking it out on Halloween. Geez. Again, sorry about the silliness. “I love the VOX....I hate the VOX”.....live and learn. I feel like a dingbat.
