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

The convenient and powerful Valvetronix VT80+ 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 VT80 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 VT80+ 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 VT80+ 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 VT80+ 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 VT80+, 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 VT80+. 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.

  • This little VOX BOX ROX!!!

    As reviewed by jimmyD on 4/14/2011

    WOW, don't let the size fool you. this thing is a BEAST! traded my VT 50 which is about Double the size, but has less then half the Goodies. Great presets, and as expected with any VOX product, amazing high quality sound. Worth the wait, worth the Price.

  • Just above Mediocre

    As reviewed by Tim Simpkin on 8/31/2012

    I'm going to exclude the fact that the channel switching buttons on the amp get stuck a lot and that the foot pedal has some issues when I write this. Despite these two frustrating flaws (at least in my experience), the amp sounds pretty decent. To anyone who has ever played a tube amp, it obviously does not replicate a tube amp as well you we would like it to. That being said, it's much better than a standard solid state amp without a tube in the preamp. I had a Line 6 spider IV before this and it sounded absolutely terrible. The effects are above average, and are useful when trying to sculpt a custom tone. The amp is plenty loud, and is a lot of fun to mess around with. Overall, 3.5/5 starts.

  • Incredible Tone

    As reviewed by Brendan on 7/5/2011

    Just got this amp a few days ago, and I cannot stop playing it. I've found myself showing up late to everything I do, because I pick up my guitar for just a minute, and I cannot put it down. This amp is LOUD! I play in a small 3-piece band, and I thought I would need the 120W Valvetronix, but the 80W has more than enough power to clear acoustic drums and bass (I haven't even turned the power knob past halfway yet!). The distortion on this amp is awesome as well. With the 12AX7 in the preamp stage, you can bet you get a beautiful sound out of this thing. I've found settings for everything I can think of; whether it is a Robben Ford style "clean" distortion, or a fat and warm Warren Haynes style tone, it's on there. The available amp models on here sound so good, Cali Clean and the AC30 are my personal favorites. The preloaded effects and stomp pedals are very good as well. The "Gold Drive" pedal sounds awesome, and is definitely my favorite so far! It's also fun to play around with the funky effects, such as the Filtron. All in all, this is an awesome amp for an amateur guitarist like myself. If you are looking to step up to something bigger and better, but not ready to drop the cash on a pure tube amp and the pedals to go with it, then consider this thing! It will not let you down.
