Customer Kudos "Great service, employees are like friends and/or relatives, the Play as You Pay really help out by allowing customers to purchase a higher dollar item that would otherwise be out of reach or at least until we scrimped and saved enough to finally make the purchase upon which time the darn thing might be sold or no longer available."

Vox VT20X Modeling Combo Amplifier

The Vox VT20X combo amplifier blurs the line between tube amps and solid-state amps by offering guitarists the best of both worlds. Featuring 11 amp models that go way beyond just mimicking classic amps, this combo amp dials up the authenticity by sporting a real 12AX7 tube in its preamp section! Add in 13 on-board effects, recallable presets, expanded editing via USB out and Vox's Tone Room software and you've got a 20-watt combo you won't soon run out of ideas for.

The Fresh Factor: Tube Tone From a Tube

Guitar players today are demanding authenticity from their amps. Digital modeling just can't capture the real analog sound of tubes, and for the past few years, Vox has set its modeling amps apart from the pack by including actual tubes in their preamp sections. The VT20X carries on this distinction by sporting a 12AX7 Valvetronix multi-stage tube to help boost and add character to your guitar's signal before it hits the power section.

The VT20X's tube is great for lending more warmth to your tone, but Vox lets you go much deeper into tube tweaking by giving you the option of emulated Class A and Class A/B operation, giving even more voicing options to each amp model. There's also an adjustable bias control -- turning from "cold" to "hot" bias gives your tone just a bit more dirt, perfect for when you need a bit of messy grit. With these controls, your VT20X will really behave like a tube amp!

Virtual Element Technology

Just like with the VX series of amps, Vox makes use of Virtual Element Technology in the VTX20. This innovative modeling technology digitally recreates not just the sound, but the circuitry of classic amps, including the shimmer of a Fender Deluxe Reverb, the roar of a Mesa-Boogie Dual Rectifier, and of course, the unmistakable voice of a Vox AC30!

The VT20X also lets you do something few classic amps can: save multiple presets complete with EQ and effects settings, and instantly recall them later. They're all controllable via an optional footswitch, so you can unleash your custom tones live. And if that weren't enough, Vox's free Tone Room app gives you in-depth editing of amps and effects on your mobile device, which you can upload (along with additional amp models) to your amp via the USB port!

The VT20X is Perfect For:

Tube Lovers: Though the VT20X features a single tube, the multi-stage Valvetronix tube runs the important job of shaping and beefing up your guitar signal in the preamp section before it reaches the power or output section. And valve enthusiasts will love that the amp allows them to run in an emulated class A or A/B and adjust the amp's bias. Adjusting these leads to subtle, authentic tonal variances that other digital amps can't recreate.

Tone Chasers: Those who have recurring dreams of being in a room full of vintage amps will want to check out the VT20X's 11 amp models, including one of the most rare and sought-after amps of all time -- the Dumble Overdrive Special. If that's not enough, you can plug your smartphone or tablet in to the VT20X and access even more amp models through Vox's Tone Room app!

The VT20X Goes Great With:

There's no better way to plug into your VT20X than with a Vox coiled cable. These stylish cables come in a number of colors to suit your style.

If you're looking to play live, the Vox VFS5 will be an indispensable tool for switching between presets on the fly.

And though your VT20X comes with 13 on-board effects, there's nothing wrong with adding one more, especially when it's a Vox V845 classic wah.
