Overview

The Vox Valvetronix VT30 is a 30W 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 VT30 amp also boasts a full complement of effects, allowing it to cover the needs of a wide variety of styles and performance techniques. The Vox VT30 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. In other words, it replicates aspects that have an important influence on the sound of a tube amp, such as the power amp's class A/AB operation and the interaction of the power stage with the speaker. You get not only the response of the original amp's power amp circuitry, but also the power amp's distortion as well as the nuances and subjective sound pressure of a full-tube amp.

Features
  • 30W 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
  • 12 high-quality effects including independent reverb, rivaling the quality of dedicated units
  • 3 banks (basic, effected, and song) are provided for each amp model, giving you a total of 66 preset programs
  • 22 programs of "song presets" simulate the sounds of famous guitarists
  • You can save 8 of your own edited programs
  • Power level control allows you to adjust the output wattage of the power amp, so you can obtain that distinctive power amp distortion even at low output levels

I have been playing vox valvetronix amps for a few years now and they are by far the best modeling amps on the market. I have an AD50VT that I love but it is too big to travel alone with all the time. I invested my money in this VT30 and won't be looking back. It has any sound you could ever want and it is almost as loud if not louder as my old 50 watt. I like how vox makes it easy to chose the effect you want and the ability to save four of your own sounds. I won't need many stomp boxes anymore which is great for playing live. I would recommend buying the VFS5 foot switch to change effects with your feet. I liked my old vox AD50VT but I love my new VT30!

First, the good: I've owned mine for several months and am still amazed at the truly wide range of sounds you can get from this amp. At the flick of a switch or a button, your sound can change from sparkling "surf" music to the super-overdriven crunch of death metal. Lots of amps can do this, however. But what the Valvetronix amps can do is to sound as though you have about ten different surf amps, ten different metal amps, etc. - it gives you a wide range of sounds WITHIN genres. It's also very lightweight and easy to transport and set up just about anywhere. Now, the bad: it can fail at high volume. I had the wattage control, the master, and the volume of my VT30 set at or near fully cranked during a gig in September 2010, and the amp fell silent after five minutes of playing. After a 45-minute cooling down, it was fine - but unless you want to play "air guitar" while the show goes on, you may not want to crank this up at a gig without a backup amp available. My only other gripe would be that the power cord is a bit too short; it's only about three feet or so, which means you'll likely need an extension cord or you'll be tied to stage left or stage right. Thus, in my humble opinion, it's a great amp for practice and for recording, but it might be too fickle to gig with on a regular basis.

So Good I've Retired My Pod

By Steve

from Oshkosh, WI

Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT30 30W 1x10 Guitar Combo Amp:

I've been using the VT30 for a couple months now and am still amazed at what a great deal it was. First, the cons: It's a little noisy. It definitley has a hum to it. I did a little reading on the Vox site and this seems to be a common complaint. It's not a real big deal though - certainly not a deal breaker. Second, I really think a line in jack for a drum machine or a mp3 player and a line out would be valuable features. The Pros: This amp sounds great! I'm a modder by nature and the first thing I do when I get a new amp or guitar is try to upgrade it. No need to here, no new tubes or speakers required. It's versitile - every sound from super slean, smokin blues, to real distortion. It's super easy to use - someone finally got it right. Controls are very intuitive, you don't have to carry the manual with you. In 5 minutes, without the manual, you will be able to switch between 66 presets, tweak any of the 66 to your tastes, save and use 8 of your own, or use the amp manually. I've unplugged my Pod and put it away, this amp is that good. Controls are laid out well, and effects are pretty good too. The attenuater is handy for late night practice. Nice sound, nice features, nice price - what else could you ask for.

amazing

By tommy

from elbert co.

Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT30 30W 1x10 Guitar Combo Amp:

I was at guitar center and one of the employee's showed me this amp. I took one look at it and thought "this amp is just a stuped solid state amp" I tried it out just to be nice and was blown away by the amazing tone. This amp is both tube and solid state but it sounds incredibly warm. 100% analoge signal and tube overdrive. this amp will give you any tone you dizzier. the only bad thing I would say is the speaker cant handle a lot of low end at high volume but if you mic your amp at gigs it should not be a problem. if you need a lot of volume get the 50w or 100w. All in all I would put this amp aginst any great tube amp.

Power!!!!!!!

By Brenton

from roseville

Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT30 30W 1x10 Guitar Combo Amp:

even though it's not a 12" speaker, it still has massive power, for a 10". with the power knob in the back you can easily practice quietly by yourself, or crank it if you are playing along with a drum set!!! and the new price makes it a better deal than the VT20

Great for the 7 weeks it worked, but it's headed for the dumpster

By SR

from Marlborough, MA

Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT30 30W 1x10 Guitar Combo Amp:

I had mine for about two months before it quit during a gig in September 2010. Unfortunately, I didn't get the store warranty when I bought it. I had to bring it to an authorized Vox repair technician who, after SIX WEEKS, said he couldn't fix it. He told me to call Vox and they'd replace it. I called them. And called them. And emailed them. And posted pleas for help on their website. NOTHING. At the moment it just makes a loud buzz whenever the power is turned on. It will very likely end up in a dumpster at this point, despite that it's only been out of the box for about 5 months. The features are truly great and the sound is amazing, but the quality is so horribly poor I definitely wouldn't recommend buying one without some ironclad store warranty.

Yes it can do all this

By gldank

from south orange nj

Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT30 30W 1x10 Guitar Combo Amp:

What I love about the VT30 amp is not having to tweak it when you want to try a riff with a different tone. Punch a button or turn the 'amps' switch and you morph from Keith Richards to Brian May to The Edge to Eddie VanHalen. I have a life and don't have time to chase a tone - nor do I want to own a bunch of stompboxes. The amp even sounds great when you use Manual/Bypass (non-mod/no effects) as well. Nice ringing clean tone and screaming hi-gain -it's still a VOX. fyi -I have found it helpful to 'reboot' the amp to the factory settings once a month or so, just to clear any edits I may have made to the presets. See the manual for the 'how to' - it takes <1min.

Good, but one flaw:

By BlazinXC

from Wayne, NJ

Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT30 30W 1x10 Guitar Combo Amp:

This amp in general delivers and I have owned it for over a year. The effects are pretty decent and the different amp settings are very unique and they sound great on my epiphone sg g400. Now the only flaw is that this newr model does not have a line in jack, but a footswitch jack instead. This prevents me from pluging in my recorder directly into the amp and forces me to use a stereo instead. My teacher has an older version of this amp and it indead has a line in jack which was very convienient. But besides that this is a great amp that can be used for practice or at a gig (I'd recommend the VT50 for live gigs though).

Great Amp

By Wildboomer

from Amarillo Tx

Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT30 30W 1x10 Guitar Combo Amp:

I have had this amp for about 6 mo now and I must say I like it a lot. I play a TV Jones modded Greysch 5120 and 5810. This little amp really delivers. I love how light wieght it is, the range of preset sounds and the watt control on back. It is perfect for home use and smaller gigs. This little guy really punches through and can be heard. I sometime jam with some younger guys with stacks and I do just fine. I dislike that it has no "out" jack so I am unable to plug into a larger system when things really get going but that is what the VT100 is for and my next purchase.

VOX VT SERIES = LOVE

By nopixels

from SLC, UT

Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT30 30W 1x10 Guitar Combo Amp:

I recently purchased this amp as a gift, and spent several days testing it out and getting the settings down. After playing several electrics through it, including my semi-hollow, I am thoroughly impressed! The entire package is very solid and nicely built (even the chrome grill looks nice, in my opinion). The gorgeous top panel controls make it easy to dial in an amazing array of sounds, with pre-programmed options that run the gamut from expressive and clean to modern and gritty. The switchable amp modeling is very diverse, the effect models add a nice built-in variety to the on-board sounds, and the stand-alone reverb control is quite nice. Editing, creating, and saving sounds is also a breeze. Manual mode also sounds fantastic �ۡ����̴�_I ran my stompbox modeler straight into the amp input, and absolutely loved the sound. The amp is quite loud �ۡ����̴�_perhaps my favorite feature is the power attenuator, which lets you run the master volume all the way up for full tube expression, but keep the output volume down to bedroom levels if necessary. In only wish that the external speaker and FX loop outputs of the 50/100W models were included in this great 30W model.
