I've tried alot of "semi-tube" amps. This one clearly outperforms the competition with its amp modeling (I've tried line6 pods and vox definitely did something a little bit better to my ears). Realistically your probably only gonna use about 3 mabe four of the amp models because some your gonna like and some just wont appeal to you. That's the truth of a modeling amp. if your planning on performing live this amp will get your flavor out. My one complaint, which doesnt even affect me (I use stomp boxes), is the built in effects. Some are way over the top and barely usable even after tweeking (most of the "mod" effects), though the delay and reverb are pretty quality to my ears. all in all a good amp, (the closest I've heard to the tube sound without being a tube amp) which is appropriately priced and gives you mabe even a little more then you pay for.
Well what can I say about this amp head, its not a tube amp but I wasnt looking for that anyway, what I was looking for is great tone and this head has it in spades, honestly this amps sounds awesome through the right cabinet, I've tried the stock cab with it and it sucked bad, the speakers were blown, anyway I play mine through a Marshall 1960Lead cab and it rox, on its own its loud and sweet sounding but with my Keeley Modified SD-1 overdrive on and this amp begins to really shine, the crunch is amazing, and the effects are good too, I just dont use em really, I'm a meat and potatoe guy Buy this head and run it through the proper cab and you wont be disappointed, just tweak it, and youll find a sweet a spot , it doesnt need much tweaking by the way. My fav setting UK Modern Treble at one o clock, mid at two o clock and bass at two o clock, Master Volume cranked, Gain at eleven o clock, Volume at three o clock, then switch on my SD-1 Pedal and let it bang.
Look, if you want a tube amp, this isn't it. But if you want to spend half the price and have an amp that comes pretty close, the Vox AD100VTH might just be it. This amp screams. I play it on stage and at practice. I still want a Marshall, but I played this one right next to a JCM800 and JCM900 and it held it's own just fine. Didn't touch the JCM2000, but that's a different story...Great value. Vox got it right on this model amp. One thing, I had to have the a part replaced within 3 months of getting it, but it was covered by warranty.
AMAZING EFFECTS!!!! I used a Jackson through this thing and it is grat! It does have tube tone... well kinda. You see if you dont know tube tone then you would probly think this half-stack is amazing which it is! But it is by NO MEANS a TUBE amp. Tube amps give the UMPH that makes you shine on stage and at home. Solid state is a more lifeless tone. But this solid state half stack is very impressive with all of its effects and overall appeance. But if your an experienced player, save for the Vox AC-30.
This amp is really really good. No questions about it, just hold off on the treble. All together there is 11 preset tones. You can save a tone you like on the amp, plus if you don't like the presets you can do whatever settings you want with the manual. I have an American Strat with a Seymour Duncan Hot Rails pickup in the bridge, and this amp does really really great with my Fender Telecaster, '73 Gibson SG, and even an Acoustic too. Watch yourself when you turn the amp up though, if you don't know what your doing, you'll not like the amp, but after you get the feel for everything it is your best friend. I've used it on stage and practice. Try it out. Mess with it a little. I am a very very picky musician and this amp does more than satisfy me.
You will not be disapointed!! Vox has once again shown how their replicating tube technology has progressed above the rest. This amp can truly crank and keep great tone! Its full of great amp models, effects and just overall great features. It's a great buy and it is surprising to find an amp in this price range that has this tone and features.
Came across this stack while trying out guitars, and came to the realization that this amp with a les paul with p90's was wonderful, and ended up taking both home. I was trying it against some of the lower priced marshall stuff, and to me the marshalls sounded like a toy to me in comparison. I've had carvin, mesa, and fender tube amps, and while this thing clearly isn't all tube, it sure does a great job of trying. There's some quirkyness at very low volume from the guitar- it cuts out the lowest volumes unnaturally and comes and gos- that's the only drawback or 'glitch' so far. The clean options are great, the heavier options even better. It has some pretty metal settings (a 'numetal' setting? that's like my peavey head with a 'hair knob'), but I stick with the 'uk' crunchy settings. The controls are kind of quirky- you have one set of knobs, and you use them to set up a channel and then save it, so when you switch into a channel, it's not obvious what settings you were exactly using since it's going off of memory, not what the knobs are at. It's essentially 3 channel because you have two saved ones, plus a 'manual' one which uses whatever the knobs are set to right now- where channels 1 and 2 don't. Sounds better the more I turn it up- very very clear at high volume, thanks in part to the p90's. Totally holds it's own against a very loud drummer, bassist, and another guitar.
