OVERVIEW

A formidable, no-nonsense practice amp with tube modeling.

For the guitarist who already has a toolbox-full of their favorite effects gadgets, the VT15CD guitar combo amp has all the features of Behringer's VT15FX, except the onboard effects. With a Clean channel, as well as an Overdrive channel with 3-band EQ, the VT15CD is all about tone!

Where Are the Tubes?
Ask any guitarist what they want most from an amp and theyll answer with a single word: tone. That quest for tone drove Behringer to develop the VIRTUBE family of amplifiers. Their proprietary VTC (Virtual Tube Circuitry) gives these amazing amps their in-your-face tube-amp tone. Amps with such rich, harmonic character and buttery tube-like goodness, youll wonder where they hid the tubes.

Revolutionary VTC Technology
The secret behind VIRTUBEs incredible sound is Behringer's VTC Tube Modeling processor, which exudes the very essence of tube saturation and compression. But VTC does so much more than just generate a cheap copy of a specific amp character. It accurately emulates the interaction between classic tube stages, responding to the subtle tonal changes that occur when one stage hands the signal off the next. The resulting signal is rich in harmonic content and far more true to the nature of tube amps.

Two-Channel Operation
VIRTUBEs Clean channel is elegant in its simplicity. The sound is open and uncolored and can be tailored to your needs by Volume and the analog passive equalizer. The Overdrive channel features Gain, Volume, Bass, Treble and Behringer's proprietary Contour control, with its radical midrange sweep. All this versatility enables you to artfully define your perfect tone, from traditional to scooped modern and anything in-between.

Handmade Speakers
It takes a special speaker to handle all this incredible technology, tube-like tone and brutal output power. Thats why Behringer outfitted the Virtube VT15CD with an 8" handmade, heavy-duty Bugera Vintage Guitar speaker. Custom-designed and handcrafted specifically for the VIRTUBE Series, it's ideally suited for classic sound reproduction.

Get Connected
Whether youre recording or just jamming on your latest riff, you need the right connections, and the Virtube VT15CD combo really has you covered. The PHONES/LINE OUT B jack is much more than just a place for your headphones to call home. As the name implies, this jack can also be used to send your guitar signal, with speaker simulation, to another amp or mixer.* When the PHONES/ LINE OUT B jack is in use, the internal loudspeaker is muted, allowing you to crank your guitar into the wee morning hours, without bothering the neighbors. If youd like to play along with previously recorded tracks, just plug the output of your CD/Tape/mp3 deck into the CD IN/LINE OUT A jack. This jack also serves a second purpose, providing yet another Line Out, this time without speaker simulation.*

* Note: Use a standard 1/4" TS cable to connect this linelevel signal to the destination device. If a hum is detected, or the cable run is more than a few feet, you may get better results using a Direct Injection box, like our DI100 or DI20.

FEATURES
  • Powerful 15-watt, 2-channel guitar amplifier with authentic VTC Tube Modeling
  • Revolutionary VTC Virtual Tube Circuitry gives you the sound and feel of an authentic tube amp
  • Original heavy-duty 8'' BUGERA vintage guitar speaker for classic sound reproduction
  • 2 full-featured channels offering everything you need from clean to super-fat distortion sounds
  • Radical bass, mid and treble controls for every sound from traditional to scooped modern
  • Additional Headphone and Line output with integrated speaker simulation
  • Dedicated CD input for playback of line-level signals (e.g. CD player, drum machine)
  • High-quality components and exceptionally rugged construction ensure long life
  • Conceived and designed by BEHRINGER Germany

A lovely little amp, with very clean design and electronics. First thing I did when I took it out of the box and plugged it in to power was set the volume to maximum and listen, with nothing going in and the overdrive off. Silence was my reward, which is what you expect - no buzz, no hum, no nothing. That reflects the quality of the wiring, of course.

Next I switched on the overdrive, and got a nice solid sound of white noise that you'd expect. Turned that off, shut down the power, and got out my Oscar Schmidt/Washburn OU2E Concert Uke and plugged it in. Turned the amp back on, set all the relevant nobs to 5, and started playing. The sound was clean and lovely. Cranked the volume up to ten, and it was clean, lovely and loud. Switched on the VTC and it added breadth and warmth to the sound - very nice tube modelling for an amp in this bracket. Turned on the overdrive and immediately had to turn down the OD gain and volume because, after all, it's an acoustic instrument and started to feed back 'cause I was pointed at the amp... but once I got the levels down it was clear that the overdrive would be a nice alternative sound.

So that got me to pull out my Peavy G-model electric guitar, and the sound was consistently good. Plenty of volume, with the kind of control you'd expect from a straight-up "clean" amp, with no distortion even cranked up.

Summary: the 8" Bugera speaker and typically good Behringer electronics shine in this compact, inexpensive amp, very suitable for home studio, practice and light performance use.

This is a fine amp if you need something light, portable for practice. Sound quality is average; hard to get the same clarity that I get from bigger, more expensive amps, so takes a bit of work to re-EQ guitar sounds to be acceptable. My goal was to have something portable for practices only, so it meets that need. I would not use this for any professional work or recording.

      For the price I beleive this is the best deal I ever saw. This amp out performes its price 10 fold if its used for the right stuff. Great for small jams and open mic gigs and can be great as a monitor. I have paid more for less sound quality. Virutube sound is impressive if you tinker with it.

        Comments about Behringer VIRTUBE VT15CD 15W 1x8 Guitar Combo Amplifier:

        I bought this Behringer amp as a Stupid Deal, which it wasn't. The clean channel is crystal-clear, while the high-gain channel can be very brutal, although really classic when the gain is dialed back - a very rockin' sound. The "VTC" tube-tone switch brings out the best in a guitar pickup's sound, and the tone controls work well in this small, albeit mighty little practice amp. I haven't tried miking it up yet for recording - most of the electric stuff I record is with a modeler. I'm sure it wouldn't be hard for a certain player to get his certain sound(s) through this cool amp. Did I mention that the back of the amp is sealed so all of your tone comes out of that 8" speaker out front? Very nice, and a total bargain as that Stupid Deal!

        Comments about Behringer VIRTUBE VT15CD 15W 1x8 Guitar Combo Amplifier:

        Actually I play mostly acoustic-electric, but I prefer 'electric' amps to dedicated 'acoustic' amps. My main stage amp is a big ol' Peavey Classic tube amp, but it's not exactly portable -- it's murder on my back and shoulders. So I was looking for something portable and for practice. This amp fits the bill. Both channels work great and the VTC feature is a nice addition. The only thing I'd have liked would have been reverb but I can't say how much more I'd pay, so the price is right. (I just use my Zoom A2 pedal in front of it.)

          Comments about Behringer VIRTUBE VT15CD 15W 1x8 Guitar Combo Amplifier:

          I purchased this as the Stupid Deal of the day. I have some of the original Behringer amps and they all sounded very sterile to me. The virtube on this amp changes that, it is much warmer than the originals. Clean is excellent, and when you find the "sweet" spot on the gain channel, you will agree this is excellent also. By adding a reverb pedal I get the perfect sounds I need for classic rock, blues and jazz. I have been playing guitar for 52 years. Musicians Friend--when are you going to stock the larger models of Behringer virtube amps(1 x 12," 50 or 100 watt) so I can purchase one of those also???

            This is not a big amp. Only 15 watts but the overdrive channel can drive you out of the room. Yet the distortion is rich with good crunchiness one wants in a small amp.

                  This is a very nice amp but I have never owned an amp before this. For my first amp it really gets the job done, it sounds awesome, and for the price you couldn't find a better deal. I have also bought an Epiphone Les Paul Special II and with the amp it sounds great. You could play various songs from Dust in the Wind to Crazy Train and it sounds much like the original songs. I strongly recommend buying this amp because I could not have been happier with my purchase.

                          I bought the VT15CD when it was the "Stupid Deal of the Day", and I'm glad I did. I use this little powerhouse to warm up the glossiness of digital keyboard sounds and it does a great job of it. Don't pass up this amp because it lacks the FX unit of the VT15FX, the VT15CD sounds great without it. At it's current LOW price, you don't have any reason not to give this amp a test drive!

                            This amp has been great. The Virtual Tube Circuitry gives it a amazing sound. The overdrive is excellent, and the speaker puts out a lot of sound. I am very glad I made this purchase, and I would recommend this amp to anyone looking for a good practice amp.

                                        I bought this amp for my 12 year old Nephew as a Christmas present. He stayed over during the New Year's Eve weekend, so we spent quite a bit of time playing guitars. I was pleasantly surprised by the clean and semi-clean tones I got from this amp. I could pull off some great "Riviera Paradise" tones with my Strat. The distortion channel was about average for amps like these. But it kept my Nephew happy while he was banging out AC/DC and Metallica chords.

                                        One feature I really liked was the Virtube circuit. It takes the amp from a sterile, typical solid state amp, and fattens up and adds warmth to it. Not like adding gain, but it really does give a tube presence to the tone.

                                        I've been helping my Brother-in-law build a recording studio, and I can see this amp being used in it for some tracks. A very nice amp, and when you consider its paltry price, it's a no-brainer!
