    Tube tone and a ton of amp, cab, and effect models.

    The compact ToneLab ST Modeling Effects Processor from VOX offers 33 different amp models with a versatile array of cabinets and effects to take your guitar playing to the next level—wherever you go. With a real 12AX7 tube and Valvetronix technology, ToneLab ST pedal delivers, pro-level, true-tube sound.

    Designed for mobility, the compact ToneLab ST is made for guitarists on the go. The rugged metal body will stand up to life on the road, and the expression pedal carries on the fine tradition of VOX wah pedals.

    The Valvetronix ToneLab ST is a shining example of VOX's unique, cutting-edge vacuum tube modeling know-how, delivering a broad range of powerful sounds. From large amp stacks to mini-combo amps and multi-effect pedals, the ToneLab ST boasts a diverse lineup, and can be seen on stage, in the studio, and in the home. The Vox ToneLab ST maintains the sophisticated specifications of the Valvetronix series, while packaging them into a compact unit that allows anyone to easily experience true tube-powered sound. In addition to both amplifier and cabinet models, there is also a wide variety of expertly modeled effects. In a compact, easy-to-use format, ToneLab ST delivers classic vintage sounds, studio-quality and high-gain amps, even newer amp models created by VOX. Effect parameters can be quickly assigned to the expression pedal, ensuring a limitless range of performance power. Sophisticated extras include an auto chromatic tuner, sound management software for your PC, and convenient USB audio interface operations. The Vox ToneLab ST is designed to deliver the ultimate in tonal dexterity to the musician in any situation, from stage to studio and everywhere in between.

    True 12AX7 tube circuitry

    The Valvetronix series was developed with painstaking attention to detail. The valve circuitry features a real 12AX7 vacuum tube, along with other components, to cleanly mimic the interaction that occurs in a tube amplifier in a way no digital circuit can. This distinguishes the ToneLab ST from other modeling units. This fundamental difference is the basis for the awesome sonic power available in the ToneLab ST.

    Sophisticated top-to-bottom modeling technology

    Through the years, a handful of guitar amps have provided the inspiration and created the driving force behind the greatest guitar performances in history. ToneLab ST is equipped with 33 spot-on amp simulations, including vintage amps, coveted boutique amps, the latest high-gain amps, and VOX-designed amp models. But the ToneLab ST goes even further, adding 11 classic cabinet configurations that can be mixed and matched with any amp model. That's 363 amp and cabinet combinations available instantly.

    Multiple effects add a custom touch

    A single ToneLab ST program contains amp, cabinet, pedal, and modulation effect settings—even noise reduction options—providing enormous freedom and versatility for creating your own sounds. There are 50 preset programs for immediate use, covering a broad range of styles and playing styles. The preset programs include 20 song programs, able to instantly reproduce the familiar sounds of those great guitar songs that everyone will recognize. This way, you can enjoy the versatile sounds of the ToneLab ST right away—before you even consider creating your own programs. But when you're ready, the ToneLab ST guitar pedal can hold fifty of your custom edited programs. Together with the preset programs, this gives you a total of 100 programs, available on demand.

    One hundred programs, including 20 song presets

    The amp, cabinet, and effect settings can be saved into 120 programs locations. There are also 40 preset programs that contain classic settings for each amp model.

    Unlimited expressive pedal power

    The ToneLab ST provides an expression pedal that lets you control various tone shaping effects and parameters as you play. In addition to volume and wah, you can use the pedal to control real-time effect parameters—amplifier gain, tremolo speed, flanger depth, etc—providing a dramatic leap in expressive potential. The "Quick Assign" function lets you assign any effect parameter on the fly. By specifying the range of control, you can quickly create highly original performance settings.

    Excellent audio integration with your computer

    ToneLab ST is a complete ASIO-compatible USB audio interface. With a single USB connection, the ToneLab ST will conveniently interface with your computer Digital Audio Workstation or sequencing software. ToneLab ST delivers the signal to your computer digitally, with no degradation in sound, for flawless recordings. Librarian software (Windows/Mac) for managing ToneLab ST programs will be available as a free download and allows the easy exchange of data between users.

    Versatile support functions

    An auto-chromatic tuner featuring great visibility is built right in. Mute and bypass functions allow you to tune unnoticed while on stage. The ToneLab ST's powerful Amp/Line switch lets you instantly apply the appropriate compensation for a guitar amp, power amp or direct recording connection, so you can take full advantage of its full sonic potential in any situation. There's also an AUX IN jack so you can play along with the sound of your favorite band in nearly any format. Compact in size, the on-the-go ToneLab ST effects pedal is big on features and huge on tone.

      OK, the first rule of multi-effects pedals is this: It takes time to dial in the right sound.

      If you can't or won't spend a fair amount of time tweaking the settings, you won't get good sound out of any multi-effects pedal. This one is no different. I was "unthrilled" at first, but I knew it would take time to get it where I wanted it. So I pressed on, and I was rewarded with great sound!

      This unit is very impressive. Let me say first that the tube does actually work and performs it's role. The 12AX7 tube in the unit is not used as a preamp tube like it would be in most other amps. Instead, it is used as part of a power amp circuit. The tube is used to simulate the "sag" and compression of a cranked tube power amp. It does so wonderfully. It also helps smooth out the sound of the digital modeling by adding that random tube response that we all know and love.

      The Tonelab ST has 33 amps and 11 cabinets. When you read the manual, you will notice that they never use any brand names (except for Vox) when they describe the amp or cabinet simulations. You can look on the internet for charts people have compiled to tell you exactly which amps and cabinets are being modeled. I found those charts to be essential in dialing in the right sound. The amp and cabinet models are flawless, and without the charts, you're just turning knobs until you hit the right settings. Waste of time. Look up the charts and use them.

      The Pedals section does a good job, too. The Octaver is great, as is the Boutique and Fuzz. I've messed around with all the rest and like them too, I just don't use them. The Acoustic simulator can be very convincing, and the Vox Wah really does whine and growl like it should.

      The Effects section is well done. The effects quality is top-notch, but I dinged the unit 1 star because of a lack of flexibility. You can't have a fully adjustable chorus and delay at the same time, which is something that I find essential on my clean sounds. I can get close to what I want without actually nailing it. Combining those two effects on one setting was a bad call on Vox' part. The rest of the effects are really good, though. The Filtron does a great job of duck-quacking, and the Rotary speaker sim sounds good. I don't care too much for the Pitch Shifter though. It is slightly unstable and has a little tuning problem to my ears. All in all, well done though.

      The Reverb section is genius! There are only 3 types of reverb, but they work quite nicely. You simply twist the knob to set the level of the reverb and you're done. The spring reverb sounds like a real spring reverb from an amp, and the room and hall reverbs are high quality. Here's a HINT: If you need a reverb that "gets out of the way" fast, use spring. It has less density and won't cloud your signal if you play fast through it. This is good for live use where each place you play sounds different. It would be a pain to adjust the reverb level for every patch every time you play a different place, so just use the spring reverb and it will sound good everywhere.

      I run my Tonelab into the Effects Return on the back of my amp. This bypasses my amp's pre-amp and EQ, and just hits the power section. Stops my amp from coloring the sound on it's own. This way the Tonelab does all the tone-shaping.

      The unit is well built. Nice thick steel case, durable switches. The expression pedal is solid and peeking under it reveals good steel construction. I think the unit will last a long time.

      To sum up: Take your time. Make sure you have decent strings on your guitar. Read the manual. It's not hard to program. Once you program it one time, the rest is just the same thing over and over. The Vox Tonelab ST will reward you with great tones if you are willing to spend the time. Remember, those factory presets are what "other people" think is supposed to sound good. You probably think something else would sound better. Work at it and make beautiful music!

      Was really excited to get this pedal. Saw one review on YouTube and thought it would be nice. Plugged it in and couldn't believe the poor sound quality. Maybe it was a bad pedal. Simply stated I had a Digitech RP150 that blew this away. I almost sold my Vox Big Ben and I am so glad I didn't. Put it back in box and shipped back to MF. Either this was the worst pedal ever build or it was defective.

      Comments about Vox ToneLab ST Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

      This pedal has excellent amp and cabinet modelling. I purchased this pedal because I wanted a simplified direct input setup; omitting a real guitar amplifier.
      The quality of the effects vary considerably. I found the spring reverb to be of good quality as well the overdriven tube (tube screamer). The main thing to note with this pedal is that it requires a lot of tweaking and staring at the manual to figure out how to adjust different parameters; it is not user friendly to program. On the other hand it is nice that it is highly adjustable and that many parameters can be assigned to the expression pedal such as delay times, reverb, etc.
      For me this pedal functions perfectly as a direct in to a 'jamhub' so that the group can play at anytime of day without having to quiet down.

        Use to have POD2 and the tube does make a lot of difference!!!! (especially on the clean sounds) It took me a little more time to get a good distortion but they are fairly good too!!.. the only thing than I'm missing is having the (2) stereo outputs and the headphones jack separately!! :/ ... but overall is a great pedal!!!

        Comments about Vox ToneLab ST Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

        I bought this unit primarily for the amp and cabinet models. I am very satisfied with the variety and sound quality of those models. The tone is very amp-like which may be due to the 12AX7 tube it contains. I have to qualify this a bit though as I am using it thru a very high quality amp and cab (1974 Hiwatt Custom 50 and Marshall 1936) to start with. Hiwatt amplifiers have a very transient tone with little distortion that faithfully reproduce that which is put into them. I'm sure this has an influence on the tone. Some of the available 33 amp models are not my cup of tea, but still good for what they are. Others are exactly what I was looking for being mostly the higher gain options, like Bogner, VHT and Mesa, etc. I think this is also useful for someone trying to decide whether or not to buy or which high-end boutique amp to buy. It gives you a really good idea of what to expect from that particular amp before spending thousands. Vox doesn't directly tell you the names of the amp models, but instead give you vague hints in their descriptions. The effects are also pretty good, especially the 2 available echo examples, the 3 types of reverb and the fuzz. It also includes 20 factory-set "Song Programs" that emulate popular song tones, like "Back in Black" and "Man in The Box", both of which are excellent by the way. The only fault that I find is that it's not the most user-friendly unit. Setting a program is pretty easy, but going thru the set programs in a live situation would be a hassle. You cannot easily jump to set program instead having to go thru each one, one at a time, to get to your desired program. For me, having just 2 or 3 usuable amp models would have made me happy, but I ended up with at least a dozen. Highly recommended!

          The Tonelab ST is an incredible piece of equipment, and I am kicking myself for not getting one way sooner. The effects are top notch, and the amp modeling is dead on. The tones are incredible, helped big time by the tube pre. This is perfect for recording, and the usb capability is essential for me as I can use headphones and still record at any hour of the night without disturbing the family!! The tones of this thing are absolutely amazing, and really sing!!! I play on top of the line guitars and amps, and the Tonelab ST was the final missing element to the sound I have been searching for for decades. I highly recommend getting this if you are curious!! You will NOT be disappointed!! The possibilties are endless and the sound...Wow!!!!!

          from New Stanton Pa

          Comments about Vox ToneLab ST Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

          I have bought several pedals and amps over the years. I'm always searching for "what I really want".I joined a band that was not established yet and I coulnt get the sound I wanted with all the equipment that I had. So I took a chance on the Tonelab St and was very dissapointed at first. It took me weeks to tweak this thing in and now am completely satisfied. I ran this through all of my amps and found that by running it through the back of my Behringer GMX 212 by using a stereo 1/4" jack from the pedal to a left and right RCA jacks to the input in the back of the amp (so actually the amp is being used as a powered cabinet) and the amp does not have any influence on the sound of the pedal. It just amplifies it. So actually the tonelab st acts as my amp. The only knob on the front of the amp that works (because I'm plugged into the back of the amp) is the volume. I just gigged with this for the first time and it was just awesome. The volume on the pedal was up half way( the little volume knob on the front beside the input jacks) and the volume on the amp was at 3 and it was way loud enough with plenty more to go if needed. I have it set up for the type of music we play and I use about 15 presets that I created. My search for amps is now over

          The VOX tonelab ST is great

          By Claude Maggard

          Comments about Vox ToneLab ST Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

          I was a little worried because I couldnt try it first. Nobody in my area had one. After watching several demos on youtube I decided to get one. I'm impressed with its ease of use and the sound quality is great. The presets are good, but I found it easy to make my own. I was using a Digitech 155. It has nowhere near the sound quality as the tonelab. I think its mostly because of the true tube sound.

          Comments about Vox ToneLab ST Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

          I like it!
          Major features I like: rugged, robust case, easy settings, clearly marked dials, power supply included. 12AX7 visible through ventilation slots; can tell if tube at least lights up. Sound is genuine. I will be a while learning more and more about this tool.
          Nothing pounds euipment like shows. The metal case of this pedal appears to reasonable protect the product. There isn;t a roadie pr player that doesn't know the disappointment and anxiety of compponents that don't work, at the show. Thi one will.
          These days everything costs too much. Hoever, I got this pedal on sale and with free shipping. It's only a few dollars (20 to 40) more than just a wah-wah and does so much more.

          I HATED this thing when i first tried it. the effects were all jumpy, half of them seemed like repeats of previous settings and the volume seemed to be uncontrollable when dialing in settings. but now, after actually going back and spending ALOT of time with it, i think that i've finally got it figured out. i dialed in all of my favorite settings and put them all together at around the same volume so that there are no intense volume changes. i am really starting to like this thing now... i play a telecaster and occasionally a strat, so pickup buzz can be a small problem on some of the higher gain settings. i haven't gotten to give it the live test since i've figured it out, but i will soon for sure. when i DIDNT have it figured out, i gave it the live test and i hated it. the super-dramatic volume changes almost took the life of my amp . but NOW that I have the volume thing worked out, it should work out fine. great multi-effects pedal.
