Overview

The VOX Valvetronix VT50 is a 50W 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 VT50 amplifier also boasts a full complement of effects, allowing it to cover the needs of a wide variety of styles and performance techniques. The VOX Valvetronix includes 66 preset programs, including 22 song programs that simulate the guitar sounds of famous guitarists. Even beginning players can enjoy serious guitar sound right away.

The VOX Valve Reactor circuit is the key factor that separates 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.

Well after a month or more in researching and playing other amps in this catagory, I purchased this amp.It comes so much closer to the sound I want, and until I have the money saved for an all tube amp,this amp will hold me over.It's sound is so much fuller and warmer, than the other amps of it's style,and plus the price is another great contribute to me buying it.If you do not have the money for an all tube amp and want something that will keep your "gear beast" at bay for awhile, I highly recommend trying and buying one of these.Everyone has different tastes in their seemingly endless pursuit of tone,I will not tell you this is the end of that pursuit, but it is a welcomed sound to my ears that will give me that "tone" I like,for awhile.Go play on one you'll see what I'm talking about. Good job Vox!

This is a very nice amp. Pretty good at modeling all the classic amps. The Boutique distorted and 70's British are the only two settings that I think is weak. You can really dial in some awesome Vox tones. Fender Clean is also well represented. The only issue I have with this amp is the Input Jack Washer will not stay tight. You can't tighten it without taking the entire back off. The first time it was pretty cool just to see the inside of the Amp. The 2,3,4,5,6 . . .etc not as much fun. I know the fix is just to go get a better washer - but I haven't and it's just kind of a pain in the neck. All that being said I would buy this again in a second

A lot to love and learn.

By TheBoogeyMan

from Rochester NY

Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT50 50W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

The tones you can conjure out of this thing are amazing. Really rich, complex and warm. I find it difficult to get a bad sound out of it. And it is plenty loud at 50W. I hear the speaker in the 100W sounds a bit darker, but the 50 sounds great. However the VT100 has a built-in effects loop that the others in the series lack. As a result I find some pedals don't sound so good with this at all. However given the built-in effects and flexibility to dial in tone, you'll rarely need more than what is already on-board. All in all the VT50 has a tremendous "tube-like" sound that really has to be heard. Well worth th money.

A wolf in sheep's clothing

By Chris

from Boston

Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT50 50W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

This amp was a special find for me. I feel that I found a "Diamond in the rough". I traded in my Mesa Boogie Studio .22 (a sensational amp)in order to consolidate the amount of equipment that I had. After the Mesa, I couldn't bring myself to buy a solid state amp. so, I was looking at tube amps and hybrids. I narrowed it down to the Fender Super Champ XD and this amp. While the Super Champ is an amazing amp, I found this amp to be far more versatile. This amp gives pure tube tone with the advantage of modeling. This amp is definitely geared toward moderate to high gain tones but the clean tones can be had as well and they are spectacular. I found the Vox to have wider range of tones than the Fender. Also, the power attenuator is a huge plus. You can get a Motley Crue sound while the kids are still asleep. When you play a Stratocaster through this amp clean, it can cut glass, but, if you plug in a Les Paul, it will melt in your mouth. At first, the distortion settings were kind of "fizzy" but, after the speaker got broken in the overdrive was "buttery". With this amp you can get Buddy Holly to Linkin Park and everything in between. I couldn't be any happier with my purchase than I am. Do yourself a favor and try this amp out. Really put the amp through it's paces and check all of the different settings and I think that you'll be as blown away as I am. Buy one and enjoy!!! Vox knocked on out of the park with this one.

Fantastic amp...finally I found it

By batlizard74

from birmingham, al

Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT50 50W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

I have owned all kind of amps. Solid states, valvestates, all tube etc. I play mostly at home and with a jam band often. This amp I chose over amps twice the price. I've never even thought VOX as an option. I read some reviews from here and different sites, including youtube demos. I could not believe how tube like this amp is. Its "punchy" like at low volumes,you feel it. Its has many different sounds. The Fender and vintage Vox sounds are fantastic. The JCM 800 or 5150 sounds are my favorite. Its so warm. I prefer it over any single speaker amp I've played. The Orange tiny terror and the Egnator are fantastic, but imo way overpriced. To me it wasn't about the money so much. Guitar Center guy about had me with the all tube ac15 vox. Better quality, but you have to crank it. I love to crank it, but most folks I know can't play to 11 at home. I'm telling you get it! The effects are so much better to me than the Line 6. Meaning not as many, but sound like like pedals or rackmounts. Only thing I would say is consider the VT100 if you gig on a regular basis. I've had ampegs, never an all tube marshall, but have played plenty, I had a 6260 Bugera all tube that played less than 30 mins at home and just died. I didn't buy it at Guitar Center. The Marshall had jack issues for 10 years. Hope this holds up. If there is a downside, its that it should come with a pedal board. Makes no sense to me. Ill get one, but its not a biggie. Play it before buying or just get it. Unless your a all tube purist there's no reason not to. I've played dozens in last few months and this is by far the best. Glad that Bugera died on me! Blessing in disguise.

More than worth it!

By Mark

Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT50 50W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

I just picked this up and had to get my review out there. This amp is just as advestised. It has improved my sound during its first band practice last night. It cut though the mix of a LOUD band at a little over half power. The features are amazing. I only set up 4 preset tones to use and have 4 more to make. Can't wait. If you are thinking about this amp, stop thinking and go get it!

By Jordan Phelan

from Lincoln,Ca

Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT50 50W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

first off the effects on it are great is has built in chorus reverb delay chorus revern chorus delay flanger auto wa pedal and i think more. number 2 it has one of the best overdrives ivew herd yet because of its tube speaker. i mean some hardcore nice sounding distortion. if you get this and it doesnt come with a two button foot switch get one. so you can got from clean to clean with effects to distortion and distortion with effects over all just buy it its completly worth it. i play metal. blues. worship. and chrstion rock so i cover alot of bases. its over all amazing

It's Stunning

By Eric Johnson

from Cary, Illionois

Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT50 50W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

I've had this amp for a good 6 months now and i play 2-3 hours a day. The amp is awesome ive had no downsdes to it so far, but im playing it on the most garbage guitar ever made but it still has an awesome tone. This vox combined with a guitar with EMG's or seymour duncans will only blow your mind more. This amp can overplay a drumset no problem, if you play in a band. Beats my brothers drum set on a little over only half wattage. All in all great amp AND BY FAR WORTH THE MONEY. you won't want to return it it has plenty of effects and go in order from most clean sound to most distorted. You don't have to waste money on so many pedals with all the effects this thing has. It also has a tap setting.(tap the buttom for how fast you want the effect). OVERALL IT'S WORTH IT. Email me with any questions about the amp. axeman224@hotmail.com

great for blues

By Big Sid and the Hoodoo Snake Doctors

from Jonesville,SC

Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT50 50W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

I've only had mine for a short time as I bought it when my HDX had to go to tech and I had upcoming shows. I am mainly a blues and southernrock guitarist and have found this amp really works good for gigging. Shove a mic in front and sit back and wail. If it's a smaller venue it's got plenty of power as a stand alone. have had no problems and actually use it more than the HDX. Will be adding the foot switch in a couple of weeks. I have actually ran it in bypass and ran a full pedal board with no problem. also run my Vox wah inline every show with no problems. great Amp just wish I had bought one sooner.

decent amp

By benny

from Portsmouth RI

Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT50 50W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

Ive had this amp for 3 years now and it's held up well and ive had no problems, however this amp doesn't not have a grounding switch to stop the feedback from other devices, but it works fine w/ new power bars and wall outlets. The wide viarities of tones this tube can produce is amazing and the different amp model switch can make this thing sound like a vox AC 30 or 15 and other vintage models. I whould reccommed this amp to someone playing small to medium gigs in bars, private parties, etc.

Very loud, excellent tone

By Tom

from Seattle, Washington

Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT50 50W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

Easily the loudest combo amp I've ever heard. It blows away Line 6 and Marshall amps with twice and three times as many watts as this baby. Fantastic warm tube tone akin to boutique amps. As a lead guitarist in a heavy metal band I needed something high-gain with good sustain, feedback and thick distortion; this one delivers on all fronts. Gigging with this amp is a breeze, as it's very durable and more than loud enough to handle shows. I was skeptical of Vox at first, but after jamming on it for a little while at the store, it was an easy purchase.

Amazing combo, one bad downside...

By Zach

from Manteca, CA

Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT50 50W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

When I first played on this amp a couple years ago, I fell in love with it. So versatile, so loud...it was perfect. The built in effects were fairly good in comparison to most other amps I'd played. The fact that you could create, and save your own channels means no messing around with dials before every show, and no tangled mess of foot switches. The ONE thing that ruined a perfect 5 star rating for this beast of an amp is the input jack... I had my guitar plugged in and sitting against my bed, and apparently my sis tripped over the chord and the input jack fell inside of the amp. I managed to fix it, but it happens regularly now. So, the durability of this amp comes into question. PERFECT amp if you just play at home or friends houses where it won't be jostled around in a truck bed, etc. If you ARE a gigging musician, it's still a very strongly recommended amp, just be aware of what happens to it.

Listen

By TIDE

from Bama

Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT50 50W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

If you like to play Heavy metal, alternative, or just "shred", then this amp is for you. If you like to take a bunch of time fiddling with knobs and buttons and less time playing, than this amp is perfect for you. When you crank the wattage up to 50 and volume to a reasonable tone you get a humming sound. This amp is great for a beginner player or hobbyist but if you want to play live this is not the amp for you. Also check out peavey. In my opinion peavey has some under rated tube combos and stacks. They have that awesome 70s rock n roll tone. Now I know peavey has had issues with amps but I strongly recommend checking them out. And check the VOX AC30VR if you want a vox. They have a great vintage tone like its brother the AC30

Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT50 50W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

well, i was very anxious to buy this amplifier, i did a lot of research months befere, and compared between some other amps in its price range, but when i brought it home i realized its not for me, i like to play metal and metalcore, and this amp simply doesn't sound good enough for heavy riffs, i would say, get this amp if you wanna play something light, because this is not woth it if you wanna play metal

Great amp and awesome sound. Got EXACTLY what I wanted. Read for details

By Mike aka Omzig

from parma, OH

Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT50 50W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

I have had a few amps and I play guitar for my own enjoyment. But, I am picky about the sound and have always been disappointed in amps I've owned previously. I mainly like old rock and metal plus some new rock and metal. Prior to this amp I have owned a Peavy Tube combo but it couldnt get the crunch I want since it had 6L6 tubes. Ive own a crate amp with twin 12"s. OK amp but not so versitile in sound. Then I've had a Marshall Valvestate and one of the MG serious. Less then impressed with the Marshall solid state! Now onto the Vox Valvetronix VT50. Cosmetically the amp is ugly (IMO) but sound wise WHOA BABY. I've only owned this for a few days now but for the first time ever I am 100% happy with the sound i can achieve. I have found settings that are amazing and perfectly mimic the bands I am copying. Within a few hours of tinkering I have great sounds/settings for a few bands I like... Thus far I have settings for Offspring, Kiss, Judas Priest and Firehouse. And these tones are VERY close to the artists tone. VERY CLOSE ! The crunch and tube sound I found i have never been able to get with any other amp. Next I will try and get sound/settings for Metallica, Avenged Sevenfold and Shadows Fall. I will have to make another post after more time with the amp. Like I said, in anyother amp I have always been disappointed, not with this Vox ! Plus I used a $50 off special GC is offering right now so this incredible amp for under $350??? Whoa no complaints here !!!

If you are shopping in this price range, try this amp!!!

By Brian Lintner

from Dallas, TX

Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT50 50W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

I would highly recommend this amp to anyone �ۡ���� but especially people considering competitively priced Line 6 or Marshall MG amps. I have recently owned all 3 of these products in my quest for a good practice amp, and the Vox is far superior in quality, tone and usability to these other manufacturers. The Marshall MG broke after 10 days. The Line 6 POD was just too complicated and sounded tinny (whenever I switched guitars, it took me ̴_ hour to set up my tones again). The Vox gives me 22 great amp models that are simple to modify to my tastes, user friendly effects (including Tremolo!), and a very �ۡ��̏live�ۡ�ݕ�_, responsive tone that reminds me of high end tube amps. As I said, this was purchased as a practice amp. I currently also own a Vintage Marshall JCM-800, and a Fender Custom Vibrolux, so I can compare this amp�ۡ���s tones to these high-end beauties. This is the first Amp I�ۡ���ve ever owned that can truly cover both real Marshall Crunch and Fender Cleans. Trust me �ۡ���� I�ۡ���ve been trying to find that capability forever. I�ۡ���ve dialed in the 4 Fender/Marshall tones I really needed, and now I get to play with the other amp models! I�ۡ���ve never used Vintage Vox amps before, but 5 models are offered here and I�ۡ���m digging the glassy high end with my Telecasters and Epiphone Casino. Other modeled tones include: 5150, Triple Rectifier, Bogner, Dumble and others. To sum up, this amp is a great value. If this will be your only amp, I recommend 50-watts or higher and a 12-inch speaker with Solid State amps. If you ever want to play with a drummer, you�ۡ���ll need at least that much kick. With an extension cabinet and some stage miking, a 50-watt rig can last you until you�ۡ���re making enough money to justify a step up. I also recommend the optional foot switch. Even if you do not need it right away, companies tend to update amps and footswitches, so the switch that matches your amp won�ۡ���t be around forever (read �ۡ���� you�ۡ���ll never be able to sell a used amp without a foot switch).

Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT50 50W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

I haven't had the amp for long but I'm loving it so far.I wanted another small tube amp but when I played this amp It changed my mind.It does a lot of classic warm sounds well and it also gets nice and heavy for the metal and hard rock.Something you cant do with most tube amps.I haven't really messed with the effects yet.If there is a downside I would say its kind of a pain to fine tune the effects,but over all I think its a steal for anybody who likes to play multiple styles of music.

No question!

By Mike

from Wisconsin

Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT50 50W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

This amp is amazing. No question about it. I bought a line 6 used from guitar center and one of the tubes blew the day after I got it. Returned it, then looked around and was deciding between this or a Bugera. The bugera was also amazing, but I like a lot of different kinds of music and didn't want to be spending hundreds on different pedals so I decided on this. This amp is great for every style of player. You can get hundreds and hundreds of different tones out of it. I'm not going to explain them, just go in the store and try it! You will be amazed at the sound you get from this amp. Great amp for a VERY reasonable price. Also reccomend getting the footswitch, what good is 8 programmable channels with out a footpedal? My only downside to this amp so far is that it's quite complicated. Yes it has a lot of presets(66 to be exact) but it takes quite a bit of time and tinkering to find a tone you really want. Not that any of the presets are bad, they are all great starting points. But it's definitely gonna take a few weeks to find all the presets I want. Also the wattage adjuster is great..you can turn down the amount of power going into the amp so you can crank it and still get a great tone with out waking your roommates. Don't worry though, this amp can blow the curtains off your windows as well. Try this amp and you will NOT be dissapointed. (side note: personally I hate guitar center, service is always terrible but as far as amp selection goes, no-one can really beat it.)

Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT50 50W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

I just buy this amp from about two weeks ago. The guy at GC shows me some Marshall, Line 6 an Fender amps before I̴��ve tried this one. The multiple amp selection it̴��s a great thing, also the multi effect brings you the benefit of different and multiple sounds in one cage. I also buy a multi-effect pedal, but with the different sounds and effects of the amp, I really don̴��t use it at all. So much power, clean sound, multi effects,etc, in a very good looking cage. I̴��m in love with this amp. Try it and you will be very satisfied with your purchase.
