"AD15VT"
Sound: For what this sweet little package delivers is just simply astonishing. The tones from the modeling features are awesome and with the gain knob right next to it, you can really lose yourself in the myriad of sounds you can create, which appears to be endless. Feature: The modeling is tremendous and as one reviewer pointed out, you can spend hours fiddling around with the combinations. That in turns continues to motivate you as a player. Ease of Use: It was a little intimidating with all those knobs and presests, bypass, etc. But it just takes maybe ten or fifteen minutes of your time to briefly read the manual and get acquainted with it. Once you do, it's sick to where you can go next with it. Quality: Having heard stories about how temperamental tube-driven amps can be, I was really hesitant to buy this in the first place believe it or not. But I got over it in about ten minutes because after years of dealing with solid-state electronics, I decided why not. Strong structure. Surprisingly lightweight given its heft. Value: For what I paid for this amp below retail and with all of these amazing features and sound? I can't believe I'm getting it at that price. Unreal... Manufacturer Support: I've not had to deal with support...yet. I hope not. The Wow Factor: It's not a "sexy" box much in the way other amps are either by reputation or by looks. I hazard to say that it's very much a player's amp and to me, that is its sex appeal. Overall: I expect to get another Vox Valvetronix product as my playing progresses. This little bad boy is one amazing product. I'm a hard sell but this one did it.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great little amp"
Sound: The sound of the different amps gives a lot of range, but I use pretty much the clean boutique setting with a boss gt-6 pedal with the preamps turned off to get various tones. The clean boutigue sound is killer, supposedly modeling a dumble amp, it has a fuller frequency response than the twin or the other clean-capable models. If I want heavy distorion I get it from the pedalwhich has eq and is a lot more versatile. I just leqave the GT-6 pre-amps off. When I play clean, it has just enough bite to make for a great bluesy sound. There is a problem though, one I am surprised others have not mentioned. I am coming from using an ampeg vt40 for most of the last 35 years which I love but is a monster to carry and way too loud. But the tone....I won't review the vt40 here but it is to die for and very responsive to tweaking. Anyway, when I tried to dial in some of the sounds, I found the tone controls are basically near useless, especially the mid. They don't do anything but sort of throw a blanket on the frequencies they cover...no changes in color at all. This is somewhat made up for by the amp selection, which gives lots of colors, and I can color it using the gt-6 eq too but cheez, the tone controls should work better, but some of the sounds I'm after...like the lead guitar sound in Traffic's Dear Mr. Fantasy, a bassy trebly, hollowed out 1khz mid for example, or a zappaesque black napkins sound, with its over the top mids, are pretty elusive. This is a serious but not deal-breaking problem. The amp models sound good to my ears, especially the bassman (which I am not that fond of in real life! and vox sounds in addition to the boutique. The twin sounds a little tinny...not enough frequency response for me, and I don't really mess with the marshall or numetal (Soldano?) emulations much. I regularly use the ad15vt for gigging small clubs and coffeeshops, and miked it works great. Just wish the tone controls did a little more. Feature: When I went amp shopping I had a short list 0of what I wanted. Master vol, bass treble, mid, onboard good sounding reverb, tubes. I thought the fender blues jr was going to be the amp of choice, but when I tried it I found it does one sound and that's it. I didn't see anything else small with tubes and I ignored modeling amps because I already have a modeling pedal. Salesman said, after I had told him what I wanted, to check out the ad15vt, which was on sale for $159. I was skeptical, but when I read about it tthe way they do the tubes sounded like it would work...its not just a tube preamp, it is a two stage tube amp with a speaker driver emulator that is then run through a solid state amp for getting the volume. It does what it says on the tin. THe tube crunch and bite and clarity are there for most of the amps. If you can't tell by now its all about the tone for me. I use the reverb and occasionally the echo as a second delay, but not much else as far as the effects go. I'm not against effects by any means, just the gt-6 does a consistently better job. I use the vox reverb just because it is at the end of the chain. I might turn it off and use the pedal's 'verb...still testing there. Ease of Use: The effects are a nuisance to dial in. The little chart that comes glued to the top of the amp is useful and I keep it taped on the amp at home, but generally I don't use the effects so this is not an issue. THe two preset sounds are nice...would be nice if they included the footswitch in the sale instead making it extra. I mostly dial in a good tube clean sound with a little bit of teeth in it and leave it, shaping tone on the pedal so it is easy for me to use. Quality: so far so good...no complaints. I'm not too hard on equipment any more and it seems sturdy enough for me to carry around to gigs Value: it was a great value at 159 bucks. I bought it up on the spot after hearing it and have no regrets Manufacturer Support: no need for it yet The Wow Factor: It's kind of cool looking with the vox grill cover done up in chrome. I don't care what it looks like if I can make it sound how I want it too, which I mostly can. Overall: I wanted a little amp I could carry to gigs without a crane that gets a good tube sound to replace my ampeg. with the caveats above I'd say it does that well. What I really want is a midget vt40, but alas there is no such animal. I'd probably replace the vox if I needed to with the same thing or the ad30vt, which paradoxically is suppposed to work better that the 15 watter at quiet volumes because you can adjust the wattage of the output. THe ad15vt is loud enough at work and quiet enough at home for my purposes though.
