Modern and high-gain sounds to suit today's rockers and metalists!
The AD50VT2-XL is part of the VOX Valvetronix XL line. This exciting range of tube-powered modeling amplifiers delivers the power and punch modern rock players require. You also get a selection of hi-gain sounds that span the entire range of heavy rock music.
11 Amp sounds.
Sophisticated modeling technology is used to provide eleven different amps, including classic vintage amps of the past, costly, modern high-end amps and high-gain hybrids, all accessible at the turn of a knob. These new models include Glass, modeled on the Clean channel of a collectable 100-Watt head named the Overdrive Special; Funked, modeled on a classic American black-faced 2x12 combo; Buzzsaw, inspired by the British-made 50-Watt head that created the sounds of '70s hard rock and metal; Crunched, based on a very rare modded VOX AC30/6TBX Top Boost combo, adding new hot-rodded gain levels and EQ; Thrashed, modeled on a 1983, all tube, single channel, master volume 100-Watt head; Raged, based on the high gain channel of a modern, all-tube 100 Watter, with boosted bass and mid frequencies and even more gain; Modern, a still higher gain modification to the "Modern High Gain" channel, with scooped EQ; Fluid, the UK Modern setting with maximum gain and mid-range EQ, modified to emphasize a vocal-like tone for legato-style playing; Molten, based on VOX's US Hi-Gain model but capable of even more powerful, heavily saturated sounds, with an Octave effect mixed into the preset; Black, a version of the UK Modern mutated to Class A, rather than Class AB; and Damaged, rooted in VOX's US Hi-Gain model with more gain and a completely re-voiced and modified EQ to be thicker and darker.
11 High-quality effects are built in, including compressor, delay, reverb, compressor & chorus, compressor & phaser, chorus & delay, chorus & reverb, flanger & reverb, tremolo & reverb, and rotary & reverb, plus Noise Reduction. New for the XL series is an Octave effect for massive lead tones. Effect parameters are fully adjustable and a Tap button makes it easy to set your delay time or modulation speed.
Store amp and effect settings. Store your favorite amp and effect settings as a program, containing two different settings (CH1 and CH2). Switch between these settings from the top panel, or by using the optional VFS2 foot switch connected to the rear panel. In addition, there is a preset program for each amp type.
Manual mode. In Manual mode the sound you hear reflects the physical settings of the knobs. You're in control. Connect an optional VFS2 dual foot switch (sold separately) to switch programs or bypass effects. A power level control adjusts the output wattage of the power amp. This means that even when the master volume is turned up all the way to drive the Valve Reactor power amp, you can adjust the volume without losing any tone.

I bought the Vox Valvetronix AD50VT2-XL 50W 2x12 Guitar Combo Amp about four months ago. Let me start out by saying that this is my first Vox amp, but I have owned everything from Ibanez Solid state amps, to Fender Tube amps. I am an active gigging musician not someone who does not know what they are talking about.My first impression of the amp was good, it was packaged very well, no apparent damage. I plugged the amp in to my SG and waited for the tube preamp to warm up. I left it on the clean setting, and started to play. The clean setting is not all that clean, I can't quite find the right desciptive word, but the best I can come up with is "muffled" or maybe "starved". The EQ settings were where they should be to acheive a nice level sound, but it just didn't sound that great. The next thing is that this amp should not be advertised as a tube amp, it's only got a tube "preamp", you do not get real fat tube tone, or volume. I can actually deal with the tone, although is doesn't compare to my Fender Deluxe Blues Reissue,(40W tube 1x12), but what really surprised me is that Vox advertises 50w 2x12 and "tube-powered modeling amplifiers", and I have to mic this amp, it is nowhere near as loud as my Fender 1x12 40w. As far as the settings go, they are alright, kinda generic but I didn't expect much, I have only had to modeling amps now, this and a Line6, and neither one effects could compare with the sounds you get from the actual stompboxes. My last beef with this mp is that you have to buy the footswitch seperately, come on, if you are going to lay down this much for an amp, the least they could do is throw in the footswitch so you can use the modeling that the amp comes with. Nothing personal against Vox, but keep working on it, I would advise the guy looking for an amp to save a little more a get real tube, if that's what you are looking for.
Let me start out by saying that this amp has great tone and awesome features (FX, dist./cleans tones-top notch), but the craftmanship is TERRIBLE.I had this amp for literally 8 days before it ceased to function properly.Now I'm not one of those who blames the manufacturer for problems I've created, and this one is definitely a defect in the product. Here's the story:I jammed with my band 3 times in those 8 days, and NEVER exceeded a level of volume that surpassed the 12 o'clock position. On the 8th day that I'd been playing it, my lead player noticed that I had a crackling noise coming from the amp. Keep in mind the volume was not even at "5". Through various attempts at fiddling with the knobs, listening to the "headphone out" line, and tweaking the wattage controller, I found that the problem was not fixable. The horrible crackling noise only disappeared when I turned down the wattage knob and reduced the bass control down to almost nothing. This resulted in an absolutely CRAP sound, and was NOT what I paid for.As a final comment,I will say that this review is not to deter you from purchasing/using this amp, but to provide further evidence of a RECURRING factory defect among this line of amplifiers.That's not to say some haven't had great success with these either.If you'd like a great sounding amp, buy it. I just hope yours was built better than mine.Oh, I also chose to for-go buying another one of these, and picked up a fender ultimate-chorus.I hate to say it, but the Fender is better and more reliable.It also cost me less.
I just got this thing and I'm surprised at the quality of it. The closed back and strong effects give this amp a very deep tube sound. The noise gate is great too for when you're playing with some high gain. I would reccomend this amp to anyone who has $ vox is good at what they do.
Loud as hell. i only use maybe 4 amp models but they're all awesome. Huge amount of gain, and true sound comes out when volume is cranked, just like it says in the manual. I barely put it past 1/8 the volume, and volume at 1/4 can easliy be heard over adrummer in a garage. The effects are superb, in my opinion. The clean channels could be better though. It's a quite a bit of money, but it worth it. Better for thrash style playing rather than all out death metal. PLay before you buy. Highly reccomned using the amp's noise reduction on it when gain is up (in bypass mode, hold tap/edit button and turn the edit knob to the right for NR)
This thing sux I had it for a year and it took a dump on me. Now if I play it too loud the sound just plain cuts out!!! I tried to get it fixed but they couldn't fix the problem. It has too much wiring and effects in it.
I purchased this amp a week and a half ago for my birthday present. It is amazing! I walked out with an amp that is comparable to much more expensive amps.I originally bought this amp because I was competing with a Marshall 250DFX. This amp can get much louder than the Marshall, and according to the bassist and drummer of my band, has a better tone for us.This amp also has a great clean channel, which is probably because of the preamp tube, but I was surprised to find that the distortion was still unbelievable. I easily modeled bands like Tool, Rage Against the Machine, and System of a Down.
