Overview

Part of the VTX Series, the Valvetronix VT40X is a perfect combination of innovation and tradition. These amps combine sophisticated modeling technology with a multi-stage tube pre-amp circuit to reproduce the unique distortion, touch sensitivity, and the response that is characteristic of classic tube amps. Its unique modeling algorithm actually recreates the analog circuits of some of the most coveted tube amplifiers and allows you to adjust the gain structure and bias of the internal tube in real time. Also, when using certain models, the amp can be switched between Class A and Class AB operation.

The effects section has also been revamped and now offers 12 classic effects based on some of the most iconic stompboxes of all time. These amps also feature a USB port, which allows you to connect the amplifier to their PC, Mac, or iOS device (with optional USB Camera Adapter Kit) and manage programs and customize amps and effects by using VOX’s Tone Room software. The Tone Room software allows for deep editing of all of the great amps and effects so you can carefully craft your sound, which can then be saved as one of the eight customizable programs. There is also a built-in tuner, an AUX-in jack for jamming along with recorded music, and a headphone jack for silent practice.

FEATURES

  • Power: 40 watts
  • Speaker: Custom VOX 1x10”
  • Enhanced technology from VOX delivers the best-sounding amp models ever
  • Analog-inspired design utilizes a genuine 12AX7 tube
  • Bias Shift and Class features alter the circuit to recreate the response of iconic Class A and Class A/B amps
  • 12 classic effects including modulation, reverb, delay and more
  • USB connectivity and VOX Tone Room software let you customize and create your own amps and effects

So, this little thing has it all. It has great amps and effects with great sound and the feel you need from an amp to have "playability" thanks to the tube and circuitry. Each of my guitars sounds different and feels different when I plug them in, not just the same 'ol processed digital sound like modeling amps used to have. The built-in tuner is great, and the headphone jack can be used as an out that I plug directly into my audiobox for GREAT sound for recording without having to mic an amp and get loud. Connecting to a PC for more amp and effects via the tone room is like adding a post-processing program in your recording software, but instead of post you get it pre for great sounds with zero latency issues. I really can't say how happy I am with this amp. I can turn it down low enough to not even need headphones in my apartment at 3am, yet I think it's got some nice volume if I end up sitting in with friends. For the money, if you're even considering this amp just quit and buy it already. Just don't see a way you'll be let down. Watch some videos online if you want to learn more and hear it, there are some good ones, and my experience backs up what I heard about it, and then some. My expectations are rarely exceeded, in this case they were by a lot!

I picked this up because it was inexpensive and I was going to leave it where I play and practice so I didn't have to lug an amp back and forth. The sounds are decent for just plugging in but I have a nice pedal board and figured I could dial in a good clean sound and use my rig but this amp doesn't take pedals well at all. I didn't notice at GC because there were other guys trying out amps, too, but this amp is really noisy. I can't imagine trying to record with it. I've returned it.

It's not really a good thing that this amp offers so many effects built in. I'd much rather have a good sounding amp without all the bells and whistles than to have mediocre additions.

This is one of those products that just don't fit anywhere. At 40 amps it's too much for the bedroom but it's just not good for playing out.

I returned it.

BEST AMP I'VE EVER OWNED

By Flyboy

from Galveston Texas

Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT40X 40W 1x10 Guitar Modeling Combo Amp:

I've been playing guitar for over 50 years, and have had a lot of amp's over the years, but none compare to this one in quality of tone and versatility. This thing is truly amazing. Amazing power in a small package. I got this little monster last December, and I have no regrets.

  • Small gigs

Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT40X 40W 1x10 Guitar Modeling Combo Amp:

I have had this amp for a few weeks, and am super impressed. I have a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe, but it is too loud for home use. This amp can give me similar tones but at much lower volume. I have also been playing around with the Tone Room app on ipad. It allows you to totally customize your sound which you can save as additional user presets. There are only 8 user customizable presets on the amp but the tone room app allows you to store as many as you want. You do need your ipad or computer hooked up to your amp to access them.The app also has additional amps and effects than what is physically on the amp. The tuner works well. I am totally happy with my purchase, no regrets.

    Small, lightweight unit with many great sounds, good effects options, and still sounds and plays good at lower volumes. It will be harder fitting your guitar in a gig bag into your Miata than this amp, yet still has enough guts to have good volume and tone.

    The Vox vtx 40 is a great amp.

    Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT40X 40W 1x10 Guitar Modeling Combo Amp:

    I have a fender Mustang 3. It has a beautiful lush tone. I have an Orange Tiny Terror. It has a big fat tube sound So I have been comparing the Vox to them. The Vox has more bite than the Fend
    er. It is the British sound. Which is what I got it for. And it does sound tubelike, impressively so. But not as much as my Orange,, which was more expensive. So all my amps are different, and I like them all for different reasons. Which one has the best tones? That all depends on your mood. Anyway the Vox is a keeper. And for the price I don't think a person could do better.

    Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT40X 40W 1x10 Guitar Modeling Combo Amp:

    I have have had about 30 amps over the 20+ years I've been playing guitar as a hobby and this is the best amp I've ever owned. I have had vintage Fenders and Marshall's and several boutique amps, and got rid of my Heavy Hotrod deluxe the first day I got this amp and am considering getting rid of a My Vintage Marshall because I am always playing this vox vt40x and can get the same tones as my Marshall and MUCH, MUCH more!!! Even does some amazing jazz tones and the best blues, rock and metal amp all rolled into 1. I tried all the modeling amps and researched all I could on line & hands on. THIS IS THE BEST YOU CAN BUY, AND IS AN AMAZING VALUE!!!

        Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT40X 40W 1x10 Guitar Modeling Combo Amp:

        I will start by saying this: I am no audio tech. Having said that...here goes. This amp is very simple to use from a "what it comes with perspective." Plug in guitar, power up amp, turn the dials, try the different sounds. Fantastic. The tone room app is pretty awesome as well. I was streaming music to my phone and playing it through the amp, playing with the songs, and listening to it all through my headphones. It was totally brilliant. Sound was great. Two things bug me and they are mostly about the app experience, which is why I didn't want to take away a star for it. One was that I am still having an issue when I want to switch from my wife's iPad to my iPhone and back to control the amp. It doesn't always pick up the new device right away. Eventually yes. The second thing, is that there is no Android version of the Tone Room app.

          Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT40X 40W 1x10 Guitar Modeling Combo Amp:

          I love this amp. I'm not very knowledgable and guitar tech, I was using a cube amp prior to this and thought it was time to level up my gear. I originally wanted a tube amp but needed something that would have great sound at low volumes so I was looking at the Orange 35rt. The guy in the store suggested the VOX instead cause it would sound more like a tube amp and it was slightly cheaper. He plugged it in and showed me everything it could do and I was sold. This guitar is great for someone who is still trying to find their sound. So many possibilities with this amp. The effects are fun to mess with and it handles pedals well. I'm using a Fender Strat and Epiphone Les Paul with a soul food and pitch fork pedals, I plan on adding a cathedral pedal as well and everything sounds great.
