My RP-2000 died so I bought this because it was affordable and for the money it can't be beat. I will say that the push controls are to close together and every effect should be re-written or the buzz/white noise will drive you nuts. Just rewrite it with the noise gate maxed out then push it into a compressor to clear it up. The Wah is not bad, the volume swell leaves much to be desired and as with most items like this it has way more crap jammed into it then you'll ever use.It is rugged, fun to play with and the headphone jack is a nice feature for late night guitar doodle during commercials. In all it is worth the money and even when I retire it I will never part with it because of all the learning, practice and late night jams. It holds many fond memories of my evolution as a guitar player, 16 years now and still in love with it..
First, the idiot who wrote the review calling this thing crap must be a Line 6 fan. He didn't even slam the correct product. He is thinking of the ToneLab SE, while looking, similar, is nowhere near the samethng. One controls an amp, one models it so you can have all the features of the Vox Valvetronix while running a different amp or directly into a P.A. or recording console. I own the VC12 floor board and use it to control both of my Valvetronix 120 watt heads with 4x12 cabs, or both my AD120VT combos. I also have used the ToneLab SE and found it to be awesome and just like my amps. I highly reccomend these products. They are built like tanks and I use the NIGHTLY as a professional musician.
well, i'm probably in disagreement with many people here, but i bought the VC-12 floorboard expecting something about half the size. this thing is seriously huge, just be aware of that. if you play small clubs and venues on tight stages like i do, it's just too big to lug around and make space for. also, this thing is awesome if you are ONLY a guitar player. personally, i sing and play guitar and to try to operate this thing at the same time is just too much to think about at once. as far as the quality and features go, it's top of the line. i returned mine in exchange for the smaller, less complicated, more gig-friendly VC-4, as i didn't need the extra capability to store preset amp settings and have 2 pedals.
I had 2 vc-4 controllers and when one broke because of the cheap, plastic PCB mount swithes, I thought it was finally my chance to move up to the quality vc-12. WRONG! If you think those big chrome things are quality switches, think again. Inside are the same cheap, plastic PCB mount switches. And one quit working after just 2 days. Bad Vox! The only real switch in this thing is under the FX pedal. They need a redesign.
i just tried this and the result is not what i was expecting. this doesn't sound like what they are saying. the pedals are no good too. it's just the construction and the look that made it attractive but it's not what guitarists are buying it for. and they made the valve so visible, which i would rather hear it sounding better than seeing the valve outside. this product is just over promoted.
I use my vc12 with my vox tonelab amp modeller. It works perfectly and allows me to save even more presets. I have instant access to all of the tonelabs perameters. The case is very sturdy and well worth the money.
great control, low price, classic tone, cool stage look.
I love the fact thatb there is an onboard tuner and two pedals for the volume and expression (ie. wah, etc.). But what bugs me the most is the slight delay you get when you hit the foot switch to go between programs. It really needs a redesign adding the fact that this is a must have if you buy, in my case the Vox ad120vt head, and play live. The price is a little bit on the high side too for a switch board.
This foot controller pleasantly surprised me with the heavy duty construction and quality and efficient design. Highly recommended.
I just bought this the other day. I find its a great BASIC pedal board the Valvetronix line. It has your basic banks selection and channel selection along with an effect switch that allows you to control the effect that have been set to the particular chanel you are on. It also has a recall switch so you can set something like a clean and a dist. than use one button to switch between them. It's built strong and comes with a bag, though its lack of versitilty and slightly lower range of foot control makes it a little spendy for it price. All in all I dig the pedal board it sutes me and I have had NO probelm with a delay in switching.
This do-it-all-built-like-a-panzer solid metal juggernaut is perfect for anyone who owns a valvetronix. The construction is flawless and built to last longer than you'll live. Don't listen to that moron who gave it low scores, he doesn't even own it! Treat yourself and give one of these bad-boys a try.
I haven't used it but am hoping to save up enough to buy it and the Vox Tone Lab. From what I have heard, they are both very good quality, have many wonderful features, especially fo the price. I have also heard that the VC12 is a little complicated, but with a few hours of playing around with it, I'm sure anyone could figure it out.
If you own a Vox Valvetronix amp or head, this is a must have item! Controlling the amp is simple. The volume pedal is great for swells, and the wah is awesome! You can select which frequencies the wah operates on through your level and drive knobs on the amp.The presets loaded into the pedal are pretty good. The tuner is better than the onboard amp tuner as it has a 7 segment readout rather than the 3 lights on the amp.I didn't want to shell out the cash for this as it is on the expensive side for a must have item for these amps. I'm glad I bought it! If you are thinking about this, buy it! You will not be disappointed! You will have the ability to switch from clean to crunch to solo - all without being attached to the front panel of the amp. This is a must have. Vox should really include this with the amp. It's kinda lame that they want the extra cash, but this is execellent!
This footcontroller is a absolute must for using with a AD60 or 120 VTX amp. I can't imagine how otherwise. So easy to use, just like the amps. Was slightly fooled about the 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 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. Hats off to VOX, if they can make an even better Valetronix VC-12 Footcontroller I'll buy it! And use it tonite!
When I bought my AD120VT, I got the VC-4 controller to go with it. This is a good controller, but the lack of ability to quickly change from bank to bank and into the tuner mode made the VC-4 great for studio use but not for live gigs. I opted for the VC-12 control board. It is a little pricey, but well worth it live on stage. I think my favorite differences are: the wah/expression can be switched on and off, it has a dedicated tuner button, and it has a recall button to go right back to the setting that you were previously on. This floor board makes an already good setup, awesome. The foot area for each button is large (I have size 12 feet), the VC-4 was a little small for my foot size. Don't get me wrong, I really liked the VC-4 foot controller, but I absolutely love the VC-12. Anyone who doesn't like it must have forgotten all about the stone ages when we only had channel A and B and then we would have had 20 stomp boxes to emulate everything that this amp and foot controller offers.
