Valvetronix out of those three, no doubt. But if you have a lot of money to spend (aka $5000) get a Vox AC-30 TB, Edge would be proud.

I haven't heard the other two but I don't see how you can go wrong with the Vox.

I'd go with the Valvetronix for the Edge sound...

I have the Valvetronix, and trust me, unless you come into enough money to start buying amps for several thousand dollars, you will never need another amp.

No they're more like $2000 for a new one.

A 60's original JMI (Jennings Musical Instruments) Vox AC30 may cost 5K but the edge didn't have an original either. (see the Unforgettable Fire documentary where the VOX logo is outlined- not the JMI logo) I'm sure he does now though.

Get the Valvetronix now then get the real deal in a few years if need be.

Keep in mind that the real Vox AC30 is loud and sounds better loud, when the tubes are really being driven, as with all tube amps. Great for a garage band setting.

But for practice, you're better of with the VT anyway

My husband just bought a Vox Cambridge Reverb tube amp (1967). He is sooo happy with it. It sounds like an AC30 at lower volumes, which works well in the home studio!
