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
  • 22 realistic amp models are built in, ranging from the latest high-gain types to unobtainable legendary boutique amps and vintage amps

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.

Very very VERY good AMP.

By Chuck

from Charlotte, NC

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

LOve the fact I can bypass all the effects and use a manual mode makes using this amp very easy and can get down to playing rather than having to mess with the amp to get a good sound. Used to have a Vypyr, Fender Deluxe 85, Vintage Silvertone, Marshall, several Line 6 models, and umteen amps I am not remembering had so many. This amp is easier to use and has very excellent sounds. Have had many tube amps and the warmth and musicallity of the sound from this amp is very powerful, and if I need it louder I just connect it to a bigger amp or pa, or mic up. I do not loose any quality in the sound doing this! Amazing value for the money. Mine has been extremely reliable and is about 6 months old now. I tightened screws all around on it and took it apart and checked QC and it was very clean looking inside. Like the closed back idea, not seen on other amps of this size. Really does help improve the sound quality. Only thing I would change and there is room for this is add a larger speaker like a 10" speaker.

Sturdy, punchy, and mostly perfect.

By Jake

from North Haven, CT

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

I bought this to replace a Fender Vibrochamp that died (something beyond bad tubes) after only four months. Bought the Vibrochamp because I hated all the solid state amps in the $200 price range due to how digital and fake they sounded. But I also move around a lot, and decided that a tube amp just wasn't feasible because of weight and fragility. Played a lot of small amps and this was the best. It's louder than many 15w amps that I played, and the effects/amp models (once you figure out how to use them) are pretty decent for being completely digital. Definitely a steal for anyone looking for a small, portable amp with good power and a lot of amp/effect options. Plus, it uses a tube for preamp, which seems to really help the tone. The two downsides: 1) the speaker is pretty bad and cannot handle low notes without getting extremely muddy. I replaced it with a Jensen Mod 8/20 and that seemed to fix it. 2) I have yet to find a good clean setting, but that's probably just me not spending enough time with it.

Could be better

By Nashman

from Summerville SC

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

This amp was my first modeling amp purchase. From right out the box, I was thouroughly impressed with the effects and models this amp can produce. The features are deep and enjoyable, but a little hard to use. After 2 weeks of slight use at only 50% power, one of the tubes went out. I won't be too harsh on VOX as I also own a Pathfinder 10 that is ten years old and sounds and looks brand new, but it is still disappointing to buy something new and have it break quickly. The most annoying part of this amp is the volume automatically swithes to full bore whenever you switch effects. This could possibly be me not knowing how to operate one of the 10,000 switches and buttons on this thing, but I've heard others complain of this as well. Hoping I can find a cheap fix for this and the tube so I can get back to using this otherwise fine amp.

you dont have to play the guitar to know good sound...

By jeff

from mesa,az

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

went to guitar center and was sort of pushed into buying a line6 spider IV... since i was short on time i trusted the guys judgement... man was i wrong.. i got home and messed with all the presets, and just couldnt get a decent sound from that amp.wasted more time mesing with it than playing through it... that amp has alot of high ratings on here.dont know whos rating em..... hmmmm...anyways i picked one of these vt15s up off of craigslist that had a jensen speaker in it and man i just fell in love with the thing.( the dude said it didnt sound much different from the stock speaker).. my first real day of practicing with it for 5 hours with the wife giving me the evil eye and kids screaming in the background.... i just really like the tone and the volume attenuator on the back which allows me to play at a low level while still getting the crunch of the different built in amp models...i have a Ibanez RG2EX1 hooked up to it and couldnt be happier with the setup. this amp is an absolute steal at a hundred30 bucks..will definetely pick up the pedal soon also..buy it and you wont regret it for a wife friendly practice amp.

You'll never need another amp

By Isaac Lamb

from Pendleton, Indiana

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

Vox has done it again, creating a work of art that gives you volume, range, versatility, and ruggedness. For a 15 watt, this thing is LOUD. or rather, it can be. When my rhythm guitarist's 30 watt is on full, I overpower it with this thing on half. The different amp settings range from clean like an accoustic to dirty overdrive to the sound of the Beetles to crazy gain or fuzz. The effects on it aren't the best in the world, but who gets an amp for its effects? Anybody who sees this amp is in utter awe of it. This is a great purchase for a great price, don't back away!!

Mighty Mouse

By renderwerks

from Alta Loma, Ca

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

I haven't gigged for over 20 years and have played casually for years now. This amp made me want to play again like the old days! I've owned an Ampeg VT40, a full Carvin stack, a Twin Reverb, a couple Crates, etc... In a word, this thing just sounds great. It's built in effects sound great, and the many different models cover many tone sets. VERY feature rich for such a little guy. Before getting this (had it for over two years now), I had a single, average electric guitar and a cheap Ovation acoustic. No new equipment for years. Now, I've added an Ovation Balladeer 12 string, a Dean, an Epiphone Les Paul, a drum machine, a bass, another amp, and more. I'm considering buying one of it's bigger brothers. Double bonus for me is having the "same" amp to practice with and play for the neighbors a block away at the same time! This amp made me think of myself as a guitarist again...

Still loving Vox!

By Brian

from Denver, Co

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

Wow! what an awesome little amp! Bought this a couple days back, and still can't put my guitar down... Been a fan of Vox for years, used to have the AD50VT, which I loved, but it took a dive off the back of a truck. So, I've been playing acoustic for many years now, and decided it was time to get some electric back in my life. I tried Marshalls, Fenders, Line 6, even bought the Bugera V5, which within a week returned, only to go back to the first amp that caught my attention. Glad I did. This thing is so loaded w/ features, not that I use half of them, but for the price, it's amazing. The addition of a separate reverb control is very handy, the other 11 effects are easily manipulated. 22 cab/amp modes give you all the flavor you could need. And the two banks of 4 user presets are awesome! I'm done comparing amps forever. As long as Vox is in business, I'll be buying from them.

Great Amp!!!!!

By Ethan Radecki

from WI

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

This amp is an incredible starter amp, it has a lot of great effects on it, like some of the classic vox AC30 sounds and more. i would definitely suggest getting the VSF5 foot switch, i have 1 and its great, though some times the volume gets messed up so it would be nice to have a volume pedal with it. But over all this is a great amp

Just Buy It!!

By Chester

from Bridgeton,South Jersey

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

I have owned this amp for over a year now and LOVE It!!!One of the salesmen told me to try it out,and I'm glad I did.After looking at different models, none of them had the effects,or flexability this one has.You can sell your effects pedals after you buy this amp!!From a clean blues sound to Metallica this thing does it all!!It is also very user friendly.It only takes a few minutes to play with it to find the sound your looking for.Don't let the size fool you,this amp is LOUD for "ONLY" 15watts.For the size and price you can't bet the value.Try it out,I don't think you'll be disappointed

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.
