Product Description

The Vox AD50VT amp makes the pure tube sound of Valvetronix more affordable than ever! The AD50VT packs the amazingly versatile tube sound of Valvetronix into a new amp that introduces a modern twist to the traditional VOX design.

VOX Valve Reactor for true tube power amp sound and feel. The AD50VT features the patented VOX Valve Reactor found on all Valvetronix products. The Valve Reactor circuit uses a 12AX7 triode vacuum tube together with an actual low-wattage tube power amp circuit, a virtual output transformer and a dummy speaker circuit that simulates the impedance changes of a real speaker. It also reconfigures itself so that its characteristics are the same as the amps it's modeling (class A, class AB, negative feedback circuit, etc.) This means that all of the nuances of the original amp model including sound, feel, distortion and presence are reproduced accurately.

Eleven realistic amp models using sophisticated modeling technology. A total of eleven coveted amp types are provided. Starting with the classic AC30 and ranging from vintage to modern, hi-gain to clean, a variety of amp models are built-in, giving you an incredible range of sound-creating potential. Selecting the amp model and adjusting the tone controls is as intuitive as it gets - just turn the knobs!

Features
"VOX Valve Reactor" circuit delivers real tube power sound.

Eleven amp models are built-in; using sophisticated modeling technology to cover a wide range of realistic sounds.

Eleven different types of popular, high-quality effects (including composite effects) are built-in.

Store your own user programs in CH1 and CH2.

Preset mode automatically gives you the characteristic sound of that amp when you select an amp type.

Knob-based interface for quick and intuitive editing.

Manual mode lets you hear the exact sound settings that the knobs are indicating.

Convenient line/headphone jack for home recording or late-night practice.

The optional VFS2 dual foot switch lets you switch programs or bypass the effect.

Eleven high-quality effects cover the basics.
Nine standard effects indispensable for any guitarist are built-in. These include auto wah, compressor, phaser, chorus, flanger, tremolo, rotary, delay and reverb. With the addition of combination-type effects, you have a total of eleven effects to choose from. Each effect lets you adjust several parameters. There's also a Tap button that makes it easy to set the delay time or modulation speed.

Save your user programs in CH1 or CH2.
Channel Select mode lets you save two of your own programs,including the combination of amp and effect settings. You can access either channel at a touch, for immediate switching while you play.

Easily select the classic sound for each amp type.
The new Preset mode gives you a tonal starting point for each amp model. You can enter Preset mode at the touch of a button, and then simply choose an amp model to automatically get the preset sound for that amp. Select a Preset, modify it and save it to CH1 or CH2.

Manual mode lets you hear your exact sound settings.
In Manual mode, the sound you're hearing will be exactly what the knob settings indicate - just as on a conventional amp. It's visually intuitive, so it's quick and easy to create just the sound you're looking for.

Convenient line/headphone jack for home recording or late-night practicing. You can connect the line/headphone jack to your mixer, multi-track recorder or headphones. Since the character of the cabinet is also added to this signal, the sound will have a sense of "air" and depth even when you're listening through headphones or recording direct.

Adjust the output wattage of the power amp.
The AD50VT lets you adjust the output wattage from 1~50W,so you can lower the volume without losing the sense of drive that's unique to tube amps. You can get the great distinctive tube sound at a volume that's appropriate for any location.

Footswitchable Control
If the optional VFS2 dual foot switch is connected, you can use it to switch between user programs (CH1, CH2) or to bypass the effect. Alternatively, you can choose to have the footswitch activate Manual mode instead of Effect Bypass, which gives you handsfree switching between three different sounds (the two user programs and the Manual settings) for convenience during a live performance.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (125 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Everyone should have one!!!"
Sound: The sound quality is great. This amp gives you a lot of options soundwise. Different amp tones, with or without effects, loud or soft, clean or distorted... sounds great whether you are playing something like a Les Paul (with humbuckers), or even better, a strat-type with single coil pickups. I also own a Peavey Classic 30, which I love to death, but the Vox gives you the extra sound choices! Feature: even though this amp does not include a footswitch,I cannot fault vox for that. The amp price is so low that you can afford to buy the footswitch separately... c'mon, 25 bucks? you pay that easy going to a movie for 2... no big deal... Ease of Use: If you sit down with this amp for a little while, you'll get it. Just switch it to manual mode and tweak the normal knobs if you're intimidated by the program buttons... Quality: This amp has a great simple design. I love it. Value: not even a question. great value for the money. buy one now! Manufacturer Support: have not had to use it yet... I only hope their service department is as groovy as their amps. The Wow Factor: I definitely wanted this AD50VT amp. I actually first bought the smaller AD30VT (30watts, 10" speaker), and decided it wasn't quite powerful enough for my useage. But I do recommend the AD30 for anyone on a really tight budget, and to use it as an amp modeler in your home studio, using the line out on the back (which mutes the speaker). Overall: This amp is amazing and I am so glad I decided to buy one (thanks to another reviewer here at Zzounds site)

"Best Studio/Song writers amp Yet to come."
Sound: When I first sat down to try this amp I was amazed with how close it resembled some of the most popular amps its modeling . Everytime I tried a new amp model all I could say to myself was , Awww I reconize that sound it sounds like ......ACDC,Aerosmith,Matalica,Van Halen , Queen (BrianMay) , Hendrix , Eric Clapton , etc,etc,etc. Feature: The only thing I didnt like about this amp was , when pluging in the line/phones out it cuts out the speaker, I wish it had a seprate Line and Phones out or a way to bypass this , also when using the External speaker out it also cuts the internal speaker ??? don't quite get that one. Ease of Use: Easy to use as for its all analog controlls , I espcally liked how the knobs work in the same manner as the amp its modeling , Not all amps controls work the same way . Some amps have a mid range type of boost others have it in the trebal range , and some the way the trebal is set will effect how both the Mid and bass work , pretty cool. Quality: Once after I unpluged the line out , the amp acted funny like the power was cut in half , I tryied pluging in and unpluging the line out a few times and then the problum went away , seems like a switch got stuck or somthing , hasnt happen again but it did worrry me some. Value: Pound for pound its a great amp for the price , Best for practice and studio work ( Best studio amp ever )would I trust it plying out 3/4 times a week , not sure. I rate it agenst my Ampeg SS140C ( $1400.00 )& Marshall 100w Mosfet w/2X4X12 cabs ( $2400.00 ) had both for over 20yrs and both still work like day one and they both have been onstage 1/2/3/4 times a week for years. Manufacturer Support: Never had to deal with them. The Wow Factor: It makes a great Practice amp and Great for song Writers and studio work as it has a quick way of getting the sound you want with out having to go from ampt to amp , effect to effect , Pluse it has an awsum line out recording sound ,Powerfull punchy , just wright sound and feel so the guitar dosnt get lost in the mix . Overall: I think I will be using this amp for a long time ( I hope ) Like I said above , you cant beat this amp for recording , song wrighting and practacing , you can get the sound your looking for in a snap to help drive the feel for the song your wrigting and the sounds you get are awsum , absolutly awsum.
