Product Description

Sophisticated modeling technology combined with the Vox Valve Reactor power amp circuit that uses a 12AX7 vacuum tube results in sound quality that overwhelms the competition. Announcing the VT series --- the latest combo amps in the Valvetronix series, featuring simulation sounds of famous guitarists.

Features
Vox Valve Reactor circuit that uses a 12AX7 to produce real tube power amp sound.

Twenty-two realistic amp models are built-in, ranging from the latest high-gain types to unobtainable legendary boutique amps and vintage amps.

Twelve high-quality effects including independent reverb, rivaling the quality of dedicated units

Three banks (basic, effected, and song) are provided for each amp model, giving you a total of sixty-six preset programs.

Twenty-two programs of "song presets" simulate the sounds of famous guitarists.

You can save eight of your own edited programs.

Power level control allows you to adjust the output wattage of the power amp, meaning that you can obtain that distinctive power amp distortion even at low output levels.

Headphone output lets you practice at home, even at night.

With sound quality that overpowers its rivals, the Valvetronix series has achieved enormous support from guitarists around the world. It's a new generation of Vox amp that fuses high-quality modeling technology with the acclaimed Vox Valve Reactor tube technology. This new and eagerly awaited VT series provides twenty-two amp models that range from the latest high-gain types to hard-to-find boutique and vintage amps, together with a full complement of effects, making this a series of combo amps that will cover the needs of a wide variety of styles and performance techniques. Sixty-six preset programs are also provided, including twenty-two song programs that simulate the guitar sounds of famous guitarists, so even beginners who aren't familiar with guitar amps can start enjoying serious guitar sound right away. The VT series is available in four models --- 15, 30, 50, or 100W --- ranging from an entry-level model to units that can stand up to professional use on stage or in the studio.

Vox Valve Reactor circuit delivers true tube power amp sound
The Vox Valve Reactor circuit is the key factor that separates the Valvetronix series from other modeling amps. The 100% analog original power amp circuit actually has the same power amp circuit as a full-tube amp, using a 12AX7 miniature triode to reproduce a distinctive tube amp sound unattainable by digital technology. In other words, it replicates aspects that have an important influence on the sound of a tube amp, such as the power amp's class A/AB operation and the interaction of the power stage with the speaker, thus reproducing not only the response of the original amp's power amp circuitry, but also the power amp's distortion as well as the nuances and subjective sound pressure of a full-tube amp.

Since there's a power level control that allows you to decrease just the volume without affecting the tonal character, you can adjust the volume while enjoying the same sense of drive as when the master volume is at maximum. This means that you can obtain the exact same sound even when you're unable to play at maximum volume, such as when you're at home.

Twenty-two amp models use high-quality modeling technology
Another indispensible aspect of the Valvetronix series is the modeling technology that is the source of its diverse amp sounds. The sounds of twenty-two tube amps sought-after by the guitarists are built in, including vintage amps that are now hard to find, as well costly boutique amps. The coverage includes not only vintage types, but also the latest high-gain types, accommodating a wide variety of playing techniques and styles.

Twelve high-quality effects deliver the essentials with plenty of variation
Effects are an important part of creating your guitar sound. The VT series contains twelve effects with quality rivaling that of dedicated stand-alone processors, ranging from familiar standards to fresh new types. Of these, the reverb effect is always available, and three of the other eleven types are composite effects that allow up to three effects to be used simultaneously. Noise reduction can also be used at the same time. Each effect has multiple parameters that you can adjust to create the precise sound you want. There's also a tap switch that makes it easy to set the delay time or modulation speed. Independent reverb is provided, giving you an even broader range of sound-creating possibilities.

Sixty-six preset programs including "song presets" that simulate the sounds of famous guitarists
For each amp model, the VT series provides a "song preset" that simulates the guitar sound of a famous guitarist, giving you a total of twenty-two such presets. These song presets make it easy to instantly obtain the guitar sound of well-known songs everyone has heard. Each amp model also has a "basic preset" that represents the most typical settings, as well as an "effected preset" that takes full advantage of the effects, totaling forty-four presets. Together with the song presets, you have a total of sixty-six preset programs. Of course, you can also save your own favorite edited programs as one of eight user programs.

Headphone output and expandability allows home recording and late-night practice
There's a headphone output that can be connected to headphones or to your mixer or multi-track recorder. Since the tonal characteristics of the cabinet are applied to this output, the sound will not be impaired even if you make a direct-line recording or listen through headphones, ensuring that you continue to get that great spatial depth and character. The VT50/100 provides a speaker output that allows an external speaker to be connected, and the VT100 provides an effect loop that's convenient for connecting an external effect, giving you the flexibility to configure your system for any situation.

Optional VFS5 foot switch lets you switch programs or turn effects on/off with your foot
By using the optional VFS5 foot switch you can switch programs, turn reverb or other effects on/off, or make speed/tap settings using your foot. This is a great advantage when you're creating sounds or performing live.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (32 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Good Amp."
Sound: I just bought this amp. I have played it twice now in practice with my band. First of all, the distortion sounds you can get are never ending. Any type of distortion you want you can find in this amp. I gave it an 8 for lack of a good (loud) clean sound. The 4 clean amp models are pretty good if you don't require lots of volume. Feature: Almost too many! Look, I just don't give 10's. Plus the footswitch should not cost 60 bucks! Ease of Use: A little complicated at first. Once over the manual (or included quickstart guide) & you're good to go. Quality: No issues so far. Have owned less than a month. Value: Good value I'd say. Except for the 5 button footswitch. At 60 bucks it makes the package a little pricey for a 30 watt combo amp. Manufacturer Support: N/A The Wow Factor: This thing really looks cool! Overall: I expect to use this amp for quite awhile. I expect to gig with it. It is plenty loud on all of the high gain selections. My only gripe is that when you bring the amp up in volume on the clean channel to be equal to that of your high gain settings, the clean channel does distort a little. Perhaps some more fiddling is in order?

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Put fun back in your guitar playing with the VT30!"
Sound: I've just scratched the surface on experimenting with all the presets, but there are an infinite number of variations that can be set by tweaking the preset settings. I like the sound compared to my old "transistor" amp from the 80's. I own the tiny Vox DA5, so I was confident that I would like what the VT30 would do. Feature: The main controls are great. I wish it had a line out and/or speaker out. A mic input would also be nice (my DA5 has a mic input). It's a shame that the foot pedal is almost 40% of what I paid for the amp. I guess I don't need it that bad. Ease of Use: Sounds are great and the presets make it easy to find a good setting. I haven't tried wandering too far off into manual land, not have I programmed presets. Quality: Seems very well built. I bought the older VT30 vs the new VT40+ based on some reviews that imply the new ones are cheaply built. I've seen some used ones in the music store, and they look like they got beat up pretty bad, but still worked. I only worry about the tube breaking; don't know how to replace it myself if it did. Value: I was torn by wanting one of the new Fender Mustangs, or a Line 6, but this seemed like the best bang for the buck (i.e. price was low, features high) Manufacturer Support: No experience, so I have it a med-high rating. I went to register online and all sorts of crazy pop ups went off. I hope I didn't catch some malware. The Wow Factor: I like the Vox retro look, chrome grill and all. I know that they changed it to black for the new versions, but I wanted this look. Overall: I think the 30 watt will suffice for me (basement player with easily annoyed family members). If I ever start playing gigs, I may wish I'd sprung for the VT100 (or get one used for cheap).
