      Vox Valvetronix VT40+ 40W 1x10 Guitar Combo Amp (H68242)
Availability:  


The latest amp in the Valvetronix evolution with 99 presets, loads of FX, and more.

The convenient and powerful Valvetronix VT40+ combo amp delivers the guitar sounds sought after by discerning guitarists of every style. With a 12AX7 preamp tube, powerful new amp models, and the unique Power Level control, the VT40 Plus is ready to deliver the response and sound every player needs.

Tube-powered VOX Valve Reactor circuit
Every guitar player seeks the power and playability delivered by a tube amp; the fat drive tone, wide dynamic range, subtle picking nuances, and quick response. After painstaking analysis of guitarists' tastes and preferences, VOX has focused on the importance of the power amp circuit in creating the sonic characteristics long sought from tube amps. The VOX Valve Reactor was developed out of this power amp philosophy. Based on a 12AX7 vacuum tube, the Valve Reactor circuit at the heart of the Valvetronix VT40+ amp perfectly reproduces the operation, subtle nuances, and tonal character of a real tube-powered amp.

More amp models than ever before
The new Valvetronix+ Series boasts an amazing collection of 33 distinct amp models - a new milestone for Valvetronix amplifiers. In addition, the Valvetronix+ represents a giant leap in quality. The preamp EQ features Bass, Middle and Treble controls for precise tone-shaping. Beginning with classic VOX amps such as the AC30, the diverse amp model selection continues to encompass coveted amps from the pages of history, as well as the latest high-gain amps, providing a sound selection that spans the ages. Call up the sound of an old favorite, or experiment with amps you may never have tried - sought-after amps played by your guitar heroes, rare boutique amps, and vintage amps - and pursue unexplored sonic paths.

25 Diverse, high-quality effects
One of the best features of the VOX Valvetronix VT40+ modeling amp is the ability to combine the built-in effects with the onboard amp models to create a complete and powerful sound. Just as with the effects, the VT40+ makes no compromises when it comes to effects, boasting a level of quality that rivals top standalone units. The broad array of effects is divided into two sections: Pedal effects such as distortion, wah, and compressor; and Modulation/Delay effects such as chorus, flanger, and tape echo. In each section, there are 11 effects to choose from. Featuring easy-to-use settings, you can simultaneously select the effect type and adjust its parameters. In addition, there are three types of Reverb (Room, Spring, and Hall). With the addition of Noise Reduction, up to four different effects can be used at the same time.

99 Preset programs
The musicians at VOX have put together 99 preset programs for the VT40+, expertly voiced and ready for immediate use. Each of the 33 amp models provides three presets: Basic, Effected, and Song. An Effected preset calls up the correct combination of effect type and setting for a particular style.

Song presets are just like Effected presets; each one is a faithful recreation of the signature sound used by a famous guitarist to perform one of their classic tracks. Of course you're also free to edit any preset - or start from scratch with the manual setting - and save up to eight of your own custom sounds to the User presets.

Beyond the numbers
One of the greatest advances from previous Valvetronix models is the astounding sense of power generated by the VT40+. The power amp section has the potential to significantly exceed the wattage value indicated by the model name - as indicated by the shaded section of the Power Level knob. The new Valvetronix+ Series also feature a newly re-voiced VOX original design speaker that is sure to amaze you with a powerful sound that you would not expect from a chassis and speaker of this size. These fine Valvetronix+ amplifiers genuinely deliver sonic power that cannot be expressed by mere numbers.

Seize the power
The sense of drive produced in the tube power stage is what defines the inimitably fat and warm tone that's at the core of a great guitar amp sound. Our tube-driven Valve Reactor circuitry is at the heart of recreating this sound. Volume, Gain, and Master Volume controls provide key levels of controlling your gain to achieve a wealth of clean, overdriven and distorted sounds. In addition, these new Valvetronix+ Series amplifiers feature an altogether unique Power Level control. By lowering the Power Level, it's possible to achieve high levels of gain and distortion at any listening level. And, as was mentioned above, reserve power can also be dialed in using the Power Level control when you really need your amp to scream. The Power Level control allows you to take full advantage of the Valvetronix+ Series potential in any situation.

Convenient and versatile input and output
The headphone out jack can also be used as a direct line output. This output is equipped with the simulated response and character of a speaker cabinet, so you'll enjoy the natural spatial sense of playing through speakers, even when using headphones or when connected to a mixer or recording system. Plug your CD or MP3 player into the AUX input jack and enjoy jamming along with your favorite songs. In addition, the tuning function needed by every guitarist is built in, eliminating the need for a separate tuner.

Optional VFS5 footswitch operation
Plug in the optional VFS5 footswitch and use your feet to switch programs, turn the reverb and other effects on/off, and control their speed, providing additional options for sonic creativity and live performance power.

  • Great multipurpose amp!

    As reviewed by RHH on 1/20/2011

    After more than 30 years of playing on solid-state amps, I was looking for something affordable with the warm tube sound. Not wanting to invest in a bunch of pedals, I considered modeling amps. Months of research went into narrowing it down to the VOX VT40+ and Fender SuperChamp. Tried both at the local Guitar Center. No contest, walked away with the VOX. Thought the sound was somewhat better, plus the range of amp models, effects and programmability sold me. This amp has a very solid feel and the great VOX looks. I also picked up the VFS5 footswitch, feels like a quality product. So far I am very pleased with all the different sounds/effects that are available. This definitely has any tone I could ask for. Great amp at a great price!

  • This little amps rocks!!

    As reviewed by StratPete on 2/7/2011

    I have owned the VT40+ for a while and really like it, in fact I ended up selling my Mesa Boogie ElectraDyne which was a pain to haul around, didn't sound as good, at least for what I play, which is classic rock. Plus it cost me 6X as much as the VT40+! I initially intended to use it only as a practice/rehearsal amp, but it's actually quite loud and full sounding, so I will mic it through the venue PA and it'll be plenty loud. The cleans and distortion sounds are amazing. Just don't know what else to say about it. I owned the VT100 previously and loved it, but this is head-and-shoulders above that, both in terms of the amps sims and the effects. I don't find myself using the pedal sims too much, except the auto-wah which is cool, and the compressor, which gives a little more smoothness and sustain when you want it. The amp is very fat-sounding, and the modulation effects are very good. I use the chorus/delay, pitch shifter, reverb (very nice!), and the delays. FYI I decided to try the VT80+ when it became available, thinking it would sound as good as the VT40+, but a bit fuller. I started by copying over the settings for my 8 user patches on the VT40+ to the bigger amp. Surprisingly, at least to me, it sounds quite different. Side-by-side w/the exact same settings, I found myself liking the VT40+ a lot more. It has a sort of vintage-like quality that the larger amp doesn't. I also tried starting from scratch w/the VT80+, trying to find settings I liked. I found that the only sound I liked better on the larger amp was the Boutique Metal since it benefited from the extra bottom end from the larger speaker. The VT80+ certainly sounds decent, but a bit more generic to my ears, and without some of the unique "charm" of the VT40+. In case it matters, these results are based on a LP Standard w/Dimarzio Super Distortion in the bridge, PAF Pro in the neck. I have not compared the amps using my Strat yet. The VT40+ is an amazingly good-sounding little amp, you won't regret the purchase!

  • Best purchase I've made in a long time!!!

    As reviewed by Robert Cranston on 1/7/2012

    I bought this amp about 6-7 weeks ago at my local Roseville Guitar Center and am oh so very happy with this excellent hybrid amp. You get the best of both worlds with real tube warmth, tone/feel plus all the advantages of a modeling amp. I've been wanting something that I can play a low levels so I don't annoy the family/neighbors and this Vox Valvetronix 40 is just what the Dr. ordered. I've been playing my Fender Blues Jr. for a few years now (great amp too) but I've been admiring the Vox AC 15 & 30 amps on youtube for a while. The presets on this thing kick ass!!! I don't even use the song presets cuz the amp models are freaking killer. You can get everything from the world class Vox amps, of course, but the fender, marshall, mesa modes are awesome too. If you want an inexpensive alternative amp to just have fun with and experiment and be inspired with, I highly recommend these Vox Valvetronix amps. Best money you'll spend all year on any guitar gear :D
