I've been playing for 20 years and I've owned a lot of guitars and amps and let me tell you... this thing is VERY impressive, esp for the money. I'm not going to waste your time trying to convince you that this has the power of a modded Marshall half stack or that it has a warmer or deeper sound than than your favorite Fender Twin, but it is a very versatile and very mature product. Strengths: Flexability! All those models and all those effects combinations. Techy guys will be distracted for hours. The presets are OK, but I think you really need to get in there and do some tweaking to find the best sounds. Good range of amp models to play with... They may not all impress every user, but there is an impressive range. Most of the effects are very usable and you have control over several parameters unlike most other amps at this price point. Weaknesses: Limited effects combinations. I'd really like a delay and reverb at the same time. And it can't quite keep up with a drummer really doing his thing. I haven't had any issues with the input jack. Comparisons: Compared to the Line 6 Spider II 12"... well... it isn't really a comparison. Other than sheer volume, the Vox owns. MUCH more natural and weightier sound. Effects are better and you have more control over them. With the Line 6, on Insane with the gain maxed, you get great sustain, but little else. It seems like a beginner's toy compared to the Vox. The Fender Frontman might sound slightly better on the 'clean but almost breaking up', but can't match the versatility and you'll need a decent distortion box. Basically, if you are over 16 years old and looking for a very respectable amp that is very easy to lug around and has a lot of versatility because you play more than just the Metallica sound, this is your amp!

POSITIVE: It's not a bad amp. The effects are nice. Most of the models are not bad. The clean channels are a very nice feature. If you don't care about a metal or chunky squared-off sound, this amp is probably a good deal. NEGATIVE: For the money, there are better amps out there that provide the sound I want. I don't like this amp's attempts at distortion. It just doesn't sound right, and it keeps cutting in and out. Also, you can't play near the amp, or you get massive feedback whines and even worse microphonic feedback just in playing. I would think this is normal, except that I have played right next to other amps that didn't produce this effect and sounded WAY better on the distortion channel. Speaking of distortion, the "numetal" setting is pretty bad, IMO. It sounds bubbly/foamy (different frequencies cut in and out). I have had this amp for 25 days and I'm very likely to take it back. I'd rather have something that gives me the range of sound that I want, even if it has less features. This amp doesn't do that. Also, the warranty is pretty lacking (90 days to a year), compared with what else is out there. Most of the other top brands have at least a 2 year warranty, the average is 5 years.

Surprising Tone of Tones

By GuitarDr

from Chicago, IL.

After blowing up a little Line 6, my salesman at the GC in Highland Park, IL suggested this killer. Great amp emulations, excellent FX, and flexibility. Solid & well made, it "feels" solid and will surprise even the most jaded players. Two presets for clean/dirty, and has an off/on for FX. Give this little monster a test ride ASAP!

Here's the scoop on this ...

By B1ggjoe

from Southern NJ

Here's the scoop on this amp. Take the Vox Tone Lab modeler and put a 30 Watt amp and speaker behind it (with a real tube in the output section) and you have one flexible great sounding amp. There is even an attenuator in the output so you can drive the tube hard for cool distortion sounds but keep the volume low. The amp does Fender clean to Marshall heavy and is an excellent amp to begin with if you are just getting started. There are also all of the popular pedal effects included. Again this amp sounds great, is very flexible and won't break the bank.

Vox AD30VT

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

This is a great little lightweight amp that is easy to carry, easy to transport and has a wealth of tone and features. For the price, this amp can't be beat. For only 30 watts, this amp can crank in loudness. I already own a Marshall Tube Amp combo and a Mesa Boogie combo and those amps are great but put too much stress on my back because of their heavy weight. My only wish is that the footswitch would be included with this amp.

VOX Smokes!

By Fendermojoman

from South East US

I purchased in July of 2006 and really love the features in this product. Heavy, sturdy and tubed to boot! Unfortunately for me a component "smoked" inside the circuitry and now the audio and EFX are erratic while playing and I can't find out where the problem is. It costs more to get this lookied at than a new one will cost so now my 9 month old VOX is a door stop.

sweet amp for some rock!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

the amp i had before this mightaswell be a can that noise came out of compared to this. warning some of the amp models ( numetal and us hi gain) really have muddy distortion and are just bad. the good chanels are the uk amps and the ac30 for rock and hard rock they have rich creamy and crunchy distortion fit for any ac/dc fan. the effects are ok some kinda suck but the best feture is the noise gate it works well and keeps the palm mutes quite. read the manual it helps a ton!!!!!!!!!!! it can get confusing overall great rock/hard rock amp

WEAK

By stratman420

from DC

Ive had this amp for a year and a half now, and its not doin so good. granted my band plays loud and so ofted i have to turn it up to full or nearly full volume, but the speaker has blown out twice in the last few months. The effects were nice and the amp modeling features were really nice, but the amp just isnt durable enough for my use. The input jack also tends to break and fall into the amp.. Its easy to fix but its a real pain!!

This is a great amp for the money

By TullSkull11

from West Sacramento, CA

I played semi-professionally up to 1989, and I'm just now getting back to it. With a tight budget in mind, this amplifier was recommended to me. I am definitely impressed. The sound and modeling options are outstanding along with the construction. At 30 watts and from low to full volume, there is no to hardly any distortion. This is especially true if you like your sound fairly clean without too much in the way of effects. Sure, if you play professionally, and/or you abuse your equipment, you will want something more substantial and you will pay accordingly. For the rest of us however, this is a fine amplifier. It truly is much better than I expected.

Need a little more distortion

By The Crowing24

from Miami, FL

Alright I was originally going to buy the Vox AD50VT because i thought the 30w wasn't going to be loud enough but man was i wrong, this thing is freaking loud for a 30! The effects are really cool and the presets are pretty nice too. I mostly use the Numetal preset and the uk modern but it feels like it needs more gain for that really in your face metal but I am so freaking happy with this thing and my new guitar: I have a epiphone ebony korina explorer with a seymour duncan sh-6 in the bridge and this thing is just perfect for me. So if want a good amp and cant make too much noise around the house than i recommend this amp big time; dont be fooled by what i said about not making too much noise around the house because this thing is really loud! Go buy it, its the best amp you can get in this price range and it is so much better than the marshall it's not even funny so get this amp right now.

This amp won't let you down!

By NNick

from Delaware

I bought this particular amp about a year ago and it is the best amp I own. Clean sound, no feedback and it's loud! It is easy to take place to place and i wouldn't suggest any other amplifier brand then VOX Valvetronix. It is worth the price that you pay and guaranteed to last a life time.
