Product Description

The VT50FX comes loaded for tone, with Bass and Treble controls on the Clean channel and a dedicated 3-band EQ, plus the radical Contour control on the Overdrive channel -- allowing you to sweep the mids to dial in your perfect sound. The 16 onboard digital eff ects are switching on/off via the included footswitch, which also toggles between the two channels. There's also a dedicated FX Loop so you can inject your sound with your personal favorite external eff ects. With 60-Watts (the name says 50, but more is always better) and a custom-engineered 12-inch Bugera speaker, the VT50FX stands out in a crowd.

Where are the tubes?

Ask any guitarist what they want most from an amp and they'll answer with a single word -- tone. That quest for tone drove Behringer to develop a family of Virtube amplifiers. The proprietary VTC (Virtual Tube Circuitry) gives these amazing amps their in-your-face tube-amp tone. Amps with such rich, harmonic character and buttery tube-like goodness, you'll wonder where they hid the tubes.

All Virtube amps have split personalities: one that features dulcet-clean output, and one that drives your tone with an aggressive punch that only tubes, or their VTC modeling, can generate. So when the time comes, you'll be ready for everything from mellow blues to metal mayhem.

Revolutionary VTC Technology

The secret behind Virtube's incredible sound is the VTC Tube Modeling processor, which exudes the very essence of tube saturation and compression. But VTC does so much more than just generate a cheap copy of a specific amp character. It accurately emulates the interaction between classic tube stages, responding to the subtle tonal changes that occur when one stage hands the signal off the next. The resulting signal is rich in harmonic content and far more true to the nature of tube amps.

Two-Channel Operation

Virtube's Clean channel is elegant in its simplicity. The sound is open and uncolored and can be tailored to your needs by Volume and the analog passive equalizer. The Overdrive channel features Gain, Volume, Bass, Treble and the proprietary Contour control, with its radical midrange sweep. All this versatility enables you to artfully define your "perfect" tone, from traditional to scooped modern and anything in-between.

Digital FX

All Virtube models, with the exception of the VT15CD, come with state-of-the-art effects -- and not some cheap-and-cheesy reverb chip, but a full-blown 24-bit digital effects processor with 16 great-sounding reverbs, choruses, flangers and delays. This tasty collection of effects is a must-have for any guitarist and includes room, stage, concert and cathedral reverbs, slap-back and medium echoes, two long delays, plus slow and fast modulation effects -- all right at your fingertips.

Handmade Speakers

It takes a special speaker to handle all this incredible technology, tube-like tone and brutal output power. That's why they fit each Virtube combo with handmade, heavy-duty Bugera Vintage Guitar speakers. These babies were custom-designed and handcrafted specifically for the Virtube Series, and are ideally suited for classic sound reproduction.

Get Connected

Whether you're recording or just jamming on your riff, you need the right connections - Virtube really has you covered. The Phones/Line Out B jack is much more than just a place for your headphones to call home. As the name implies, this jack can also be used to send your guitar signal, with speaker simulation, to another amp or mixer.* When the Phones/ Line Out B jack is in use, the internal loudspeaker is muted, allowing you to crank your guitar into the wee morning hours, without bothering the neighbors. If you'd like to play along with previously recorded tracks, just plug the output of your CD/Tape/mp3 deck into the CD In/Line Out A jack. This jack also serves a second purpose, providing yet another Line Out, this time without speaker simulation.

* Note: Use a standard 1/4" TS cable to connect this linelevel signal to the destination device. If a hum is detected, or the cable run is more than a few feet, you may get better results using a Direct Injection box, like the DI100 or DI20.

"This horrible amplifier."
Overall: I know for a fact that this amplifier is on of the worst in the world, I have engineered amplifiers and robots for over 47 years. The fact that I have stopped to fathom this amplifier makes me slightly disgruntled. Nobody should ever buy this product becasue nobody knows where they come from, the editor of this website should go on a entrepid journey to understand why he has made everyone slightly dummer. Kind regards, John.
Style of Music: christian rock.
