    If the gt with new firmware can give me a bunch of fender amp tones vg then the price is worth it. The tm for 1 trick pony even if it does it well isnt very economical for me.

    I picked up a Vox Cambridge 50 as a spur of the moment kinda thing.
    As a singer songwriter and rhythm player, I mostly need one or two tones from my amp.
    I own some nice tube amps. The thing that hooked me about this amp was;
    Light weight, under 20 pounds.
    Quick to dial a great tone.
    LOUD to quite with the infinite control knob.
    Headphone out. (which none of my tube amps have...)
    Really nice amp tones!! (Hooked on AC 30 tones)
    "Ok" onboard effects. Not as good as my pedalboard, but definitely good enough to be useful...
    The upgrades I'm going to do are;
    Install a 3" back panel for holding power cord, pedals, guitar cables...
    Install a Jensen C12N speaker. I find that the stock speaker "icepicks" in the upper Mids, this could change with a little more time of loud playing but I just love the tone of the C12N, Tight Tuff Bottom, Full-bodied Mids and it's High frequency chime. With these changes it just may become my "Go to amp".

    Will provide update when the Jensen arrives and I get a few hours on it.
