Overview

The Vox Valvetronix VT15 is a 15W combo amp that gives you 22 amp models ranging from the latest high-gain types to hard-to-find boutique and vintage amps. The Vox VT15 also boasts a full complement of effects, allowing it to cover the needs of a wide variety of styles and performance techniques. The VT15 amp also includes 66 preset programs, including 22 song programs that simulate the guitar sounds of famous guitarists. Now even beginners can start enjoying serious guitar sound right away.

The VOX Valve Reactor circuit is the key factor that separates the Valvetronix amplifiers from other modeling amps. The 100% analog original power amp circuit actually has the same power amp circuit as a full-tube amp, using a 12AX7 miniature triode to reproduce a distinctive tube amp sound unattainable by digital technology. It replicates aspects that have an important influence on the sound of a tube amp, such as A/AB operation and the interaction of the power stage with the speaker.

Features
  • 15W combo amp
  • VOX Valve Reactor circuit uses a 12AX7 to produce real tube power amp sound

I am a very casual player who has been playing for 15 years, but went on a hiatus for probably the last 5 years or so. I previously owned a Marshall Valvestate 30W, but other than wanting to own a Marshall, I was never quite satisfied with it. I went to Guitar Center expecting to buy a the Peavy 15W Vyper combo, but was encouraged to check out the Vox instead. I want to preface my comments by saying that I have only had it for a few days, but that I am very happy with the amp, and have no regrets over the extra money. This thing has ABSURD power for the size and wattage. The warm bass and midrange blow the Valvestate out of the water, and that was a 10" speaker with 30W! If you haven't bought an amp in the last 10 years (as I hadn't), you will be amazed how many more affordable options there are in processing and modulating built right into these amps. Line 6 popularized that for the masses, but to have it on a Vox amp with a pre-amp tube is incredible. One unheralded feature is the power "sponge", which allows you to turn the wattage anywhere from 15W all the way down to zero. This is useful for people who need to practice more quietly, without compromising their tone. There are 22 preset tones (many modeled after popular songs), but I think that I'll get more use out of using it as a straight amplifier with the 11 built-in effects. Reverb sounds great, and the delay feature has a great "tap" button feature, in lieu of guessing how many miliseconds the Edge played on in "Where the Streets Have No Name." Haha. There might be a bit of a learning curve to get the tone you want, but the quality of the sound is so good that you'll have a great time figuring it out. I encourage everyone to at least take a look at this one.

I bought this as my first amp. This amp was designed for making your on affects/sounds. Knowing nothing about amps, I found this exceptionally confusing. Pros: It's loud Lots of features Great Sound Cons: Very Confusing Basic effects and amp models it comes loaded with aren't very good. In conclussion, don't by this if you're not exceptionally good with technology or don't understand amps very well. Don't buy it as your first amp. Don't buy it if you don't want an amp built for writing your own amp sounds. Also, I've had mine for about two years and it was acting fine until it randomly stopped making any sounds at all. I went to several experts and none could tell what the problem was. I tried replacing several parts but couldn't find the problem. I don't know, but it seems risky.

A Mouse That Roars!

By Bill French

from Pahrump, Nevada

Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT15 15W 1x8 Guitar Combo Amp:

Bought the VT15 a couple of weeks ago to replace a vintage 100 watt 2x12 Lab Series L5 that I passed down to my Grandson. I have been totally blown away by the performance and versatility of this little powerhouse, and honestly hate to turn it off. The multitude of available amp re-creations and effects are amazing, and the separate reverb and headphone jack are icing on the cake. From clean to crunch to max overdrive, this is "the little amp that could". I mainly play for my own enjoyment, and this amp fulfills my every need and then some. If you like the warm tones of a vintage tube amp, you can't go wrong with the VT Series. Great amp at a great price.

Amazing

By Corin Wilson

from Salem, Oregon

Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT15 15W 1x8 Guitar Combo Amp:

Easily the best 15 watt amp I've ever played. Tons of great amps that sound amazing, great sounding effects too. Also helps to have 8 channels to store all your preset, not to mention the stock 66 presets. Great sounding, very loud amp for 15 watt. You should buy the VSF5 foot switch though, comes in handy quite a bit.

Beast

By Corey

from dallas

Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT15 15W 1x8 Guitar Combo Amp:

This amp is the best 15 watt amp in its price range. Its got all the sounds you need to play ANY kind of music you need. It can't keep its tone when you turn it up too loud but its great for practicing by yourself, loud enough for practice with a band, and if you mic it is good enough for gigs. Overall it's brilliant in its design easy to use, with channel storage and over 20 different effects. You have to have the foot switch channel selector though. If your thinking about getting a line 6 or a roland or anything this is the better and more conservative buy.

Floored by this amp!!!

By Sergio

from Passaic, NJ

Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT15 15W 1x8 Guitar Combo Amp:

I saw this amp being reviewed on YouTube and thought that I'd give it a try seeing that I needed a good practice amp for home. All I have to say is WOW!!! What an amp! This baby rocks. I swear, if you can't get the tone you're looking for with this amp, especially with so many different amps to choose from, then you truly are a tone snob. I mean really, I get such sweet tones from this baby that it actually feels like a tube amp 10 times the price. My fingers have began to hurt just from playing so long. Trust me, buy this amp because Vox really got this one right. You will not be disappointed.

Newbie - First Amp - Changed my learning experience

By Stickman

from New Windsor, MD

Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT15 15W 1x8 Guitar Combo Amp:

I started playing about 4 months ago. I wasn't sure if I was going to stick it out so used my PC as an amp during the trial stages. I had inconsistent experience with making that work and finally decided to jump into a real amp since I was still interested. This amp, with its built in digital amp options and knob adjustments, makes playing a lot more enjoyable. The initial learning curve can be tough but "playing" with this amp has been really, really fun. In my less than informed research, this seemed like the best way to go based on options and I definitely feel like I made the right choice. If you want to play, and want the range of options to help keep the hobby interesting from a sound perspective, you cannot go wrong.

GREAT Amp!!!!

By DB

from Nashville, TN

Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT15 15W 1x8 Guitar Combo Amp:

This is a GREAT Amp!!! I had purchased a Line 6 Spyder IV 15 a few weeks ago but had to return two of them due to technical problems....effects of Line 6 were pretty nice, but overall, the sound of that amp was too shallow without much character....The guy at Guitar Center was a great help and recommended the VT15...I've played guitar for 35 years and was skeptical of a "tube/solid state hybrid"....but it's the real deal: warm tube tones in the vintage amp models, and awesome "Heavy" sound for all the cranksters! Great effects with lots of options...I've owned a 1968 Marshall 50 watt head among others and this, my first VOX, has made a very favorable impression

WOW unexpected

By Juan Fernandez

from Fort Lauderdale, Florida

Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT15 15W 1x8 Guitar Combo Amp:

I just bought this little beast today and I still cant belive this is a 15W amp. I needed a practice amp. because my half stack is too loud for the house (neighbors). I found this and was blown away by the sound and the amount of features it provides for being a 15W tube amp. It has 22 awesome amplifier models (so far I like all of them), 11 effects and the reverb, thats about all you need. I guess what really impressed me the most about the amp, is that I'm used to playing with the band with my half stack so I never expected this little thing to be able to get so loud. And to top it all off, the really cool tube tone. Best for the price, Highly recommended!!!

Quality sound meets versatility

By Alan

from Tonawanda, NY

Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT15 15W 1x8 Guitar Combo Amp:

If you like the sound and feel of a tube amp with the versatility of a modeling amp, then this ones for you. This thing's a powerhouse even for it's small size. I got nice clean tones and powerful distortion and it blew my brothers Vypyr 30 clean out of the water, this being a tube amp and all. It sounded much more natural and pleasing to my ear. I suppose the amp has a fairly steep learning curve but that's what they make manuals for, right? I give this a 5 for sound, 5 for looks, 5 for price/value and 4 for ease of use. I could do a durability test on it too I suppose and it would probably get a 5. Very well made piece of equipment. My only complaint so far was the excessive hiss from the speaker even when no guitar was plugged in but it seems to have gone away after a few hours of use. Maybe there is some sort of "break-in" period that I'm not aware of?

Vox is ingenious!

By Potsy

from Fredericksburg, VA

Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT15 15W 1x8 Guitar Combo Amp:

Great Amp! In the past I have had all tube amps from Laney to Marshall and in 2002 I finally settled on the Vox AD120VT (it's older sister). Recently I bought this little guy to use along side it live and you would be amazed at how loud this amp can get. 1:00 volume postition on this is about equal to 10:00 on the 120 watt amp when the vt15 is up off of the floor. The tones and sound quality in the Valvetronix line is nothing short of brilliant!!! The amp models and effects are very believable and the line out amp simulator is spectacular for direct recording. I recently bought and sold a Boss RV-5 Reverb pedal because I think the Valvetronix's reverb sounds warmer. Vox has really done well for themselves in everything they do! I hope they keep the quality up and don't go the way of a lot of other companies who sacrifice quality over pennies. You will not waste your money with this amp! This amp is a steal with all the features you get with it. You can barely even buy an effects pedal at this price!
