Overview

The convenient and powerful Valvetronix VT120+ 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 VT120 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 VT120+ 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 VT120+ 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 VT120+ 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 VT120+, 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 VT120+. 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.

I'll get straight to it. If you want all original VOX sounding amp but the AC-30's or AC-15's low wattage output of 30 watts or lack of effects turn you off then this here amp here is the perfect solution. This amp volume wise can rival a half stack easily. No need to mic this amp through a PA system this thing is LOUD!!!! Even better if you do not feel like exploding your amp to 150 watts you can turn it down to bedroom levels and jam out with out driving your neighbors crazy. The amp offers a large amount of effects but honestly I really only use the reverb section and sometimes a touch of delay. Hands down the best thing about this amp is the options of high quality amps it offers and the 12AX7 reactor circuit. you can tweak this amp fully to whatever sound you want and not only will sound great this baby sounds and plays like a tube amp. GREAT JOB VOX!!!!!!!

P.S
I play a lot of Red Hot Chili Peppers and Jimi Hendrix if you just happen to love playing this style this amp is for you!!!!

Tried to love this amp. Took it home for a week but just could not dial in anything great overall muddy or gritty tones, no real warmth. All the high gain sounds are unuseable chainsaws. Better than the ad120vt but
No where near as nice as the original blue vtx valvetronics from 2002.
Returned the amp and got a fender mustang v2 which blows the vox vt120 plus out of the ballpark in tone quality

Come on vox, you can do better

        Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT120+ 120W 2x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

        I've been looking for new amp for about a month, I currently have a BlackStare ID30, with the TVP technology, this is a good amp, no doubt about it.
        It has good sound, a lot of effects ect. I wanted more amperage, and another speaker, even thought about getting a halfstack. The VT 120 seemed to be a good choice between a halfstack and what I have. I can defiantly hear the tube in this amp, way different sound than the ID30. There are a lot of good amps on the market, the VT 120 is certainly up there. Price wise I spent a third of what other amps would cost for this quality.

        I'm happy with this amp.

          Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT120+ 120W 2x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

          I initially went to my local guitar center to buy a fender blues deluxe 1x12. However, after noodling around on it for a few minutes it ended up not being everything I wanted. That's when I walked over to the VOX section. I sat down in front of this amp and started playing, and didn't stop for two hours haha. It's an absolute hidden gem. With the tube/digital set-up it sounds incredibly warm. Almost as warm as a 2x12 tube. The digital effects are quite fun to mess with. I'll probably just use my own effect board, but if you don't have the pocket money to drop on a pedal board, this is an incredible deal for you. The Tremelo is warm as as can be, and the autowah is one o f the best I've heard in years. This is a terrific deal for a gig/practice amp. She can make some serious racket and cut through your band's noise like the best.

          VT120+

          By Alec McWilliams

          from Lowell, Indiana

          Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT120+ 120W 2x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

          This amp is for me is a good buy. After getting a Gibson Les Paul I thought it was time for a better amp. I had a Line6 1x8 and hated it, especially when a friend calls and ask to help perform. I performed with this but a a small party and still it never had enough power. I couldn't really find a good amp head that that I saw that I can afford, plus it had the power I am looking for. Of course it is not as powerful as a 4x12 amp head and speaker but can be loud when needed with the voltage knob and have many, MANY more effects over 33 different amp sounds and around 12 pedals. It can be increased to 150 watts! Enough for small performance. The hybrid of Tube and Solid State is cool and interesting. This is a good performance amp in a small scale, if you mic it maybe it will be better. Overall this is a great amp for the price.

              I bought this thing in condition 2 used status. It didn't work when I pulled it out of the box. A little noodling with the knobs and it came to life. It sounded great and I could tell it was going to be a powerful good sounding amp to use for practice and gigging.

              Unfortunately it stopped working 3 minutes later and I couldn't get it to make a sound again. So I don't know if this malfunction is a situational occurrence or if this happens with a lot of VT+ series VOXs. Hopefully not, because what little I got to play with mine I liked and I would like to have one that lasts.

              from lowell, IN

              Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT120+ 120W 2x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

              I was looking for a new amp to replace my Line 6 1x8. After playing second guitar with a friend I realized I would need more power. So I saved my pennies for this. The guy who showed me the amp and showed me all of its features, this was perfect for home use and performance. You have the ability to decrease the voltage so the amp will sound like a 10 watt at home and you can increase the voltage to 150 watts ( hence the name 120+). Don't get your hopes up when people say it's a TUBE amp, it's not its a valve reactor, a hybrid of solid state and tube. For the Increase of voltage to add more power is really cool, a steal for small performance, if you can't afford this (most can) the alternative would be the Fender Frontman 212r 100w. That is also a steal.

                Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT120+ 120W 2x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

                After 25 years of playing, I was looking for a combo amp that provided flexibility and tone. I'm not one to say "I want to sound like a Marshal Plexi", or a "BadCat 112"--I'm more a turn the knob until I hear a tone I like player. I can say without doubt, that I have found THE tone I hear in my head with this amp. That to me is enough to call this the best amp I have ever owned, but coupled with some fantastic reverb and delay effects, noise gate, and volume to spare, this is really a diamond in the rough. You need to take your time and play with it, but the tone you are looking for is there. This might not be for the player that needs 12 effects at once, or 128 different Midi patches at your disposal, but if you want a warm, loud tone machine, don't overlook this one. Also extremely reliable-has never let me down in ~2 years of steady gigging and studio work.

                  Good for a beginner but does not make you work for your sound. The fx and gain are great. it is very loud and is good for small gigs. I does an okay (I'm being generous) job of imitating that classic box sound. For a starter amp it is the best you can get, and way better than some other brands, allot better gain and sound
