Product Description

Vox's most compact ToneLab ever offers thirty-three different amp models with a versatile array of cabinets and effects to take your guitar playing to the next level - wherever you go. Introducing the Valvetronix series ToneLab ST; bringing true-tube pro-level sound to everyone.

True 12AX7 Tube Circuitry

The Valvetronix series was developed with painstaking attention to detail. The valve circuitry features a real 12AX7 vacuum tube - along with other components - to cleanly mimic the interaction that occurs in a tube amplifier in a way no digital circuit can. This distinguishes the ToneLab ST from other manufacturer's modeling units. This fundamental difference is the basis for the awesome sonic power available in the ToneLab ST that no other multi-effect unit can obtain.

Sophisticated Top-to-Bottom Modeling

Through the years, a handful of guitar amps have provided the inspiration and created the driving force behind the greatest guitar performances in history. ToneLab ST is equipped with thirty-three spot-on amp simulations, including vintage amps, coveted boutique amps, the latest high-gain amps, and entirely new amp models designed by VOX. But the ToneLab ST goes even further, adding eleven classic cabinet configurations that can be mixed and matched with any amp model. That's 363 amp and cabinet combinations available instantly.

Multiple Effects

A single ToneLab ST program contains amp, cabinet, pedal and modulation effect settings - even noise reduction options - providing enormous freedom and versatility for creating your own sounds. There are fifty preset programs for immediate use, covering a broad range of styles and playing styles. The preset programs include twenty song programs, able to instantly reproduce the familiar sounds of those great guitar songs that everyone will recognize. This way, you can enjoy the versatile sounds of the ToneLab SE right away - before you even consider creating your own programs. But when you're ready, the ToneLab ST can hold fifty of your custom edited programs. Together with the preset programs, this gives you a total of one hundred programs, available on demand.

One Hundred Programs, Including Twenty Song Presets

The amp, cabinet, and effect settings can be saved into 120 programs locations. There are also 40 preset programs that contain classic settings for each amp model.

Unlimited Expressive Pedal Power

The ToneLab ST provides an expression pedal that lets you control various tone shaping effects and parameters as you play. In addition to volume and wah, you can use the pedal to control realtime effect parameters - amplifier gain, tremolo speed, flanger depth, etc - providing a dramatic leap in expressive potential. The "Quick Assign" function lets you assign any effect parameter on the fly. By specifying the range of control, you can quickly create highly original performance settings.

Excellent Computer Integration

ToneLab ST is a complete ASIO-compatible USB audio interface. With a single USB connection, the ToneLab ST will conveniently interface with your computer DAW or sequencing software. ToneLab ST delivers the signal to your computer digitally, with no degradation in sound, for flawless recordings. Librarian software (Windows/Mac) for managing ToneLab ST programs will be available as a free download , and allows the easy exchange of data between users.

Versatile Support Functions

An auto-chromatic tuner featuring great visibility is built right in. Mute and bypass functions allow you to tune unnoticed while on stage. The ToneLab ST's powerful Amp/Line switch lets you instantly apply the appropriate compensation for a guitar amp, power amp or direct recording connection, so you can take full advantage of its full sonic potential in any situation. There's also an AUX IN jack so you can play along with the sound of your favorite band in nearly any format. Compact in size, the on-the-go ToneLab ST is big on features and huge on tone.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (16 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Fantastic Amp Modeling, Best Value"
Sound: The amp modeling on the TL-ST is great - sounds fuller and warmer than a lot of the competition. I go straight into the PA at church and this pedal puts out really rich and solid tones. Frankly I think it sounds better (or at least a little less digital) than the Boss GT-10's that the other guys in the band play, but that's just my $.02 Feature: The amp modeling is fantastic on this unit. I've dialed in about 10 solid sounds that I use pretty consistently. The cabinet models really add a lot of warmth and depth to the amp models too. The effects on the TL-ST are pretty good, although I thought the delay effects were a little limited for my liking. I wanted more delay options (like digital delay, reverse, stereo, etc)that the TL-ST didn't have. Thus, I bought a Line 6 DL4. This is certainly no failure of the Tonelab ST - what they put into this thing for $200 is awesome. The expression pedal is definitely smaller than most and takes a little while to get used to, but I have no complaints about it. Ease of Use: This is why I bought the TL-ST. No menus! No navigating through endless menu screens to dial-in your sound. With this machine you just turn the knobs and press save. It's all right in front of you (for the most part). One drawback to this simplicity is that if you're playing live and you want to switch patches on the fly, you had better save them really close to each other (numerically), as you can't just turn effects on and off. But if you only play a few different sounds anyway (like I do), this isn't a huge problem Quality: The machine seems pretty durable and solidly constructed. I play it at home and at church so it hasn't really taken much of a beating. Value: You're not going to be able to do everything on this pedal, and it certainly has its limitations for live performances (which is why I added the DL4 pedal). But for $200 you get a WIDE variety of sounds and effects, and it's so easy to use. It adds to the joy of playing guitar when you can produce the sounds you want for a bargain price. Manufacturer Support: --- The Wow Factor: who cares what it looks like, it sounds great Overall: The TL-ST produces an awesome variety of great, warm tones for such an awesome price. If you need more switching options for live shows, I might not recommend this one. But for home playing/recording, or for smaller gigs that don't require too much footwork, this is the perfect machine. I'm glad I picked it up, I'll be keeping it around for a long time.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Another satisfied Vox customer!"
Sound: Just plugged the ST in again after having put it aside for awhile. Even using a cheap pair of old Sony Walkman "sport" (in-ear with thin headband) headphones the sound was AMAZING! It's very rewarding to just turn a couple of knobs on the ST and be able to dial in some very convincing "vintage" amp and effect sounds! There is nothing "sterile" about the sound of the ST; it's warm, full and ear-pleasing! Feature: As another reviewer mentioned, there's no way to directly access a stored patch (though I haven't tried it with the PC software). Toggling up and down to find the sound you're looking for - either your own or one of the many presets - could really mess up a gig though it's fine for hacking around at home. Certainly there are more combinations of amp, cab, effects, gain structure and styles than I'll ever use! Ease of Use: For just sitting around experimenting with sounds it's fine, but I think you'd want the PC software if you were going to gig with it. Like I said above I haven't gotten to that point but I did find a video review on Youtube that actually sold me on the ST. When I have more time - like that's ever gonna happen - I plan on taking an old laptop and setting it up to run the Librarian software. Quality: Rock solid; I'm sold on Vox and will be looking to see what else they make that I can add to my hobbyist arsenal! Value: Bought it as "B-stock" and never looked back. There is no better suite of warm, expressive effects out there...PERIOD! Manufacturer Support: If it ain't broke it don't need fixin', so I'm happy! The Wow Factor: "Sex appeal?" Other than the glow from the 12AX7 tube, no. But the subdued color scheme and just-right-sized expression pedal and chicken beak knobs tell you that this is not a toy! I'm playing either my Fender Aerodyne Strat or my vintage O'Hagan Nightwatch, and the Tonelab ST definitely helps to get the very best out of those instruments and my limited talent! Overall: For the amount of time I have available to me to hack around with my guitar rig the ST covers most of my effects needs. I'm the fortunate original owner of a Japan-made Boss CE-2 chorus, and other than adding a dedicated wah pedal I'm pretty much set. The only way I'd get rid of this is if my daughter sweet-talked me out of it, and I'd probably just buy her one of her own if that happens! I guess the one feature that doesn't do much for me is the tuner. That's it!
Style of Music: "Classic" and Southern Rock, etc.
