Plenty of power and sounds like all the amps you've ever loved!
Long known for excellence in amplifiers, Vox once again steps forward with their new Vox AD120VTX NeoDog 2x12 Combo Amp. In creating the Valvetronix modeling amps, their goal was clear: design a versatile amp line that sounds and feels great. Marrying the tube tone that made Vox famous with breakthrough digital modeling technology from Korg results in a completely new kind of modeling amp - one that not only re-creates the sound, but actually changes itself to model each and every power amp on its list. And what a list! Vox (naturally), Fender, Marshall, Boogie, and more. Built-in pedal effects and digital ambient effects. 2 - 12" neodymium NeoDog speakers combined with a closed-back cab produce pounding punch with crystalline clarity.
Eat 'em alive with one of the coolest amps ever! Order today.

The VOX VC-12 footcontroller is a absolute must for using the 120 VTX amp. I can't imagine how otherwise. So easy to use, just like the amp. Was slightly fooled about the footcontroller's abilty to store and use the 128 presets . You can only load 32 at a time into the amp for immediate use. The other 96 stay in the footcontroller. I hoped I'd have immediate stage use of all 128. Maybe VOX can expand this feature in new models. Cable from controller to amp could be a lot meatier. I know It's going to fail me sometime. I'd reccomend you keep a spare! Also volume pedal is not very useful, even when recalibrated. However, Wah is great! Bottom line is that this rugged footcontroller allows you immediate access to your selection of 32 great amp sounds you can tailor to meet your needs. I play professionally the widest range of variety music. Over the years I've been thru about every imagineable amp rig. I won't get rid of my high end tube amps yet, as they have their own place. But for the versatility that I always tried to get in one rig, the VOX Valvetronix VTX series has the BEST sounds and "kick" of any "modeling amp" I've ever heard. I agonized over buying one and making a costly mistake but now I'm solidly a very happy owner. I just ordered a companion AD60VTX to supplement the 120 that I already own. Time will tell on the unit's reliability. I suggest you get a good road case for this amp. I wonder about its ruggedness. Hats off to VOX, if you can make an even better Valetronix amp I'll buy it! And use it! Tonight!

Ok so it really sounds sweet. Like, the features and the tone is great. The only problem is it breaks way too much. The only way to go Vox is all tube otherwise you're gonna end up with a headach in about a year or so. My band mate has one of these and it was awsome until about 2 months in. Then all hell broke lose along with some stuff inside the amp. I can't even tell you what went wrong with it. Suffice it to say that he got it "fixed" and a few weeks later something else happened. It looses power and distorts now. All I can say to you out there is that the repair guy that I talked to recomended almost anything but Vox valvetronic cause he see those the most.

I just got this amp used 2 weeks ago and it is THE BEST AMP I've ever played. I'm just 15 so money is short for me and this amp has saved me. It has pretty much every effect pedal you could ever want other than a looper and more distortion boxes. Although it's a hybrid amp, it sounds just like a tube amp. If you change the tubes out it'll sound even better!
Wow!!!!!!!!!! I got my Vox AD120VTX about a year ago. I have one word for it: INCREDIBLE!!!!. There is so much this amp offers. This amp gives an amazing wall of sound, which I use for many styles like rock, blues, and jazz. I use a Washburn WI-66 Pro, and a Washburn X40 Pro guitar with this amp, and it's simply incredible how they sound together. It's worth the money!!!!!!
this amp has tons of tone. great for recording cuz its so versatile. its plenty loud for most gigs and lightweight. the footswitch is a must have also, to get the most out of the amp. it is noisy with a lot of distortion but any tube amp with the gain cranked and a cranked distortion box on it is gonna be noisy.i play an ibanez and a rickenbacher and it lets each ones tone naturally come through. clean channel sounds great and lots of fat bluesy tones available. i particularly favor the ac30 tone.
I actually have the previous model with the Celestion speakers. The amp weighs a ton (63lbs) but it sounds great and is quite loud. The three handles are durable and a great help. The VC-12 floorboard is a must for anyone who wants to switch up their settings. I had an old CRATE modeling amp without a pedal and pressing the stupid little buttons sucked. I don't know much about amps, but I know I like this one.
I purchased this amp from here in May of 2005. I like all the features on it and love all of its tones. My big problem with it is it keeps breaking down. During the warranty period it kept breaking down every three or four months.It has now broken again and it is now out of warranty. If I was a touring musician I would be very upset! After also buying the extension speaker cabinet and expensive foot controller for this, I'm extremely dissapointed in Vox's quality! So all of you out there beware!
Alright, let's get to this. This amp is not for everyone. It's a fine amp if what you want is a whole ton of modeling amps and pedals, as I would choose this devil over the digital modeling of Line 6 anyday. It does sound better with the volume up and with that handy "power select" switch in back, you can pound the preamp tubes without going deaf. The effects will give you a lot of creativity, but lately I've found myself fiddling with the presets already on it; some are really nice artist sounds such as Van Halen, SRV, Zeppelin, G n R, Alice in Chains, Lyn Skyn, and many more. The speakers are very light, but have an output similar to Vintage 30s. The amp does not recieve great picking control, I was a tad dissapointed when I used the 59 Bassman setting, sounds ridiculously fantastic when you give a little chorus, a modest amount of reverb, and a big helping of Tube or Phat OD. Butter, baby. So all in all, if effects and amp models galore is what you dig, this amp is for you, but if you're a tone purist, go for a nice Fender combo, being this amp is just as pricy.
First, this amp has everything you need to play. All the built in affects were good. I picked this up figuring it would be awesome and boy was i wrong. The equipment i use is a Gibson SG Standard through a Boss DS-1 to the VOX. The clean sounds you can get from this amp are amazing. But when u go to one of the higher gain amps, this amp has a lot of noise, even with the noise reduction on. I tweaked with it for weeks and still couldnt get a decent sound with distortion. So in short, I am returning this amp and am getting a marshall or a peavey. Its a good amp with great features and good clean sounds, but the distortion on this amp is very noisy.
I've owned this amp for a few months now and it simply is awesome. I sold my Traynor tube amp and rack of effects because this amp gives me the exact sounds I want with just an amp and guitar. Check it out.
Always wanted a Vox and finally got it a year ago! ONLY complaint- it blew something a couple of weeks ago (barely still under warranty-WHEW!). I bought a Roland to play until my VOX is well again. NO COMPARISON!! Not many places to get warranty work done on a VOX in Oklahoma so maybe I'll buy another one as backup. This amp has exceeded every hope I had. I've owned Marshall, Crate, many Fenders and now Roland. If I ever have to choose only one amp for the rest of my playing days it will be this one, just keep a spare because it will be 4-5 weeks minimum before I get my baby back. Every guitar I,ve ever plugged into it has sounded GREAT. I especially like the sound of my Tele and ESP custom. Single coil silk to humbucker crunch, this amp is the best! If you need several amps buy a Valvetronix, need many different tones and effects all in one package, buy a Valvetronix. You won't be undergunned. 2, 30, 60, or 120 watts of power in one amp. This amp will cut through about any situation and the line out is true.
This is a great amp. I really like the effects and the results and how loud it is. There are two main issues that require some sorting though. First, trying to switch effects while playing live is near to impossible. To change the sound, you have to push a number of buttons. Second, it is pretty challenging to achieve a certain sound that you desire. It takes lot of tweaking, but thankfully it can be saved for later use. I would reccomned this amp. It's great.
