OVERVIEW

High-quality modeling meets the acclaimed VOX Valve Reactor tube technology in this 100W 2x12.

The Vox Valvetronix VT100 is a 100W combo amp that gives you 22 amp models ranging from the latest high-gain types to hard-to-find boutique and vintage amplifiers. The Vox VT100 also boasts a full complement of effects, allowing it to cover the needs of a wide variety of styles and performance techniques. The Valvetronix amp also includes 66 preset programs, including 22 song programs that simulate the guitar sounds of famous guitarists. Now even beginners can start enjoying serious guitar sound right away.

The VOX Valve Reactor circuit is the key factor that separates the Valvetronix amplifiers from other modeling amps. The 100% analog original power amp circuit actually has the same power amp circuit as a full-tube amp, using a 12AX7 miniature triode to reproduce a distinctive tube amp sound unattainable by digital technology. In other words, it replicates aspects that have an important influence on the sound of a tube amp, such as the power amp's class A/AB operation and the interaction of the power stage with the speaker. You get not only the response of the original amp's power amp circuitry, but also the power amp's distortion as well as the nuances and subjective sound pressure of a full-tube amp.

FEATURES
  • 100W combo amp
  • Vox Valve Reactor circuit uses a 12AX7 to produce real tube power amp sound
  • 22 realistic amp models are built in, ranging from the latest high-gain types to unobtainable legendary boutique amps and vintage amps
  • 12 high-quality effects including independent reverb, rivaling the quality of dedicated units
  • 3 banks (basic, effected, and song) are provided for each amp model, giving you a total of 66 preset programs
  • 22 programs of "song presets" simulate the sounds of famous guitarists
  • You can save 8 of your own edited programs
  • Power level control allows you to adjust the output wattage of the power amp, so you can obtain that distinctive power amp distortion even at low output levels
  • Headphone output lets you practice at home, day or night

Take the versatile VT100's tube-and-modeling technology along for the ride—order now.

!!!WARNING!!! this amp will only work with the Vox VFS5 5-Button Footswitch and not the Vox VFS-2 Dual Footswitch as advertised. Also, when you switch between a clean channel to a distorted channel, the distorted volume goes WAY up for a second then levels out making for a lame transition between channel switching, if not for this I would have rated this amp a 5 out of 5. Can't speak on the effect's as all I use is reverb and delay but from my brief experience, they sound very solid and not cheep like most other emulator amp's I've heard. Loud enough for almost any band but would recommend an amp stand and running it through the PA for extremely loud bands. Can get any tone on it, even metal tones but not the same as say a full solid state amp, in my opinion WAY better. This amp is all about tone at a good price, you would have to buy a full tube amp to get this kind of beefy tone. If your having trouble deciding what amp to get, trust me, this amp will not let you down. I did a lot of looking around before I bought this amp, it was a toss up between the Peavey Vypyr and this. The Vypyr sounds tiny and weak in comparison to the Vox VT100, plus the footswitch is WAY cheaper and better made. Go with the VT100, you wont regret it.

This amp is okay for someone who can't afford good, clean tone. And it can emulate some sounds pretty well, but nothing can substitute true vintage sound as well as more expensive amps can. I got this amp in order to have a rig in order to play gigs. I can say this - it gets the job done, but I still haven't found the tone I'm looking for. Ultimately, it's a nice gig amp at an affordable price, but it may not provide the true tone you're searching for.

great amp for the money--roadworthy for players

By kenneth pledger

from north carolina--rocky mount

Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT100 100W 2x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

frame/case-- roadworthy, durable, looks good, professional.. everything well built.
...speakers... no complaints--did a great job for me with no breakdown.
...sound? good for me. dollar value? can't be beaten.. especially with Musician's Friend backing up what they offer for sale... definitely worth $300 to $400 more than some other amps i've tried out in the $300-$400 range..
I'm not a spring chicken, but do love my music. this amp? I bought one, enjoyed it, sold it to a relative who is enjoying it dearly. Good features and effects. I mostly used the clean/glass w/ reverb with an Epiphone Les Paul ( had a Gibson Les Paul double cut special 1960's reissue earlier that sounded great thru this amp--got the epiphone so i could take it out without worrrying about it getting messed up. ANYWAY.. the AMP> as a player, this amp is sturdy, great speakers, the 'box' is roadworthy will withstand wear and tear. I've been playing since the 1960's rock, blues, folk/rock, old soul, etc.. this amp to me is ready to use on any stage-- it has some good 'lead' effects-- which i didn't use since i'm not currently playing with a band... i can say, anyone playing and with the ability will be able to make use of them for great lead sounds. definitely worth the money-- and you will have people offering to buy it from you. Musician's friend did me a favor on this one... YOU WON'T FIND A BETTER GUITAR AMP FOR THE PRICE AND QUALITY ANYWHERE!
always pleased with this amp when I owned it. the box/speakers were professional quality and roadworthy. the 'grill' kept the front screen from getting torn/breaking down. took me a while to figure out some of the settings and the footswitch stuff, but once I did, wonderful.
You can buy even a VOX with more effects, more features, etc. for the money?.. you won't find anything better. Using the clean/glass sound w/ reverb or chorus will get you what you need to play and be heard good... the other effects? up to the user and type of band/music they play... even 'heavy metal'... will get much out of this amp... I'd like to have another one.. in fact, looking at my options this week..

Its Awesome

By Travis516

from virginia

Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT100 100W 2x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

On certain amp models the tube sound really comes through. Theres so many amp models theres something for pretty much everyone. I dont really use the effects but they sound okay. Its really the quality of that pre amp valve of whatever that makes this awesome.

Very Good

By Travis516

from virginia

Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT100 100W 2x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

I bought this amp used from musicians friend about 5 months ago. I have to say it is awesome. You can really get a good tube sound from this amp. The key to this is to just keep playing with it, it took me a few weeks to really find a awesome tone. The value is awesome. The effects are good, not too over the top. The only complaint is the reverb. It makes me angry, it sounds very fake. its by far the worst of all the effects. if you want reverb id suggest using the delay with a tad bit of reverb to get a better sound than just the reverb. its loud too. Get it. I didnt regret it one bit. fantastic value

Fun to play with

By birdvsworm

from New Milford, CT

Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT100 100W 2x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

I've owned this amp for just shy of a year. I needed to get an amp suited for gigging. It was a tossup between this and a Fender Frontman 212. I've gotta say, I'm proud I bought this one isntead. I got it on here for sale at $300 with free shipping and handling! Can you say "DEAL?"So at first I wasn't horribly impressed by the sound output - I went from a 50 watt to this, 100 watt - then I realized there was a wattage control knob on the back of the amp. Up it went, and I've gotta say, this amp pairs nicely in my band with a Mesa Boogie head with Kustom cab. Not to mention I can change the settings around all I want.I still need to get the channel switcher, but this amp still makes enough noise for me. I play on slightly distorted/clean channels most of the time, and this pulls it off well. This is a great match for my Jazzmaster also. Get it and you won't be upset.

meh

Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT100 100W 2x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

like many things i have owned, this amp is what i like to call a settler. It's something you settle for when you don't have the money for something better. And it really shows. First of all, its a modeling amp. With modeling, there is a cap on sound quality and that really shows in some of the amp models. The cleans on the amp sound really nice, and i like how the amp model has its own gain/volume before the master volume. The metal/distortion/etc models are where this amp fails. They just don't sound genuine and usable. As far as the effects, they are cool, but i just prefer effects in their own unit, whether multi-fx units or indiv pedals.Although this amp sounds good for being a modeling amp, there is a lot of work left for modeling and i would suggest something that has it's own "real" sound rather than skimp out on good tonal quality to give you a lot to play with.

It's Better Than I Thought

By Guitar Man 65

from Seminole Fla.

Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT100 100W 2x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

Our Band broke up last year and I got married and had to sell my Fender Cyber Twin, and Mesa Boogie DC 5. The Fender cost $1200 and the Mesa was $1100 I believe. I used the Mesa for Live gigs and the Fender in my Studio. Our Band got offers to play again so I needed an amp. Due to the economy I don't have $1000 to buy an amp. After searching I bought the Vox 100VT. I was really worried that it wouldn't be enough Amp for Gigging. I really was prepared to trade it back in. I am so happy with this amp. I read reviews that people said you have to change the speakers etc. Not for me, and I am very picky. The different tones I get from this amp are awesome. I love the fact that I can adjust the wattage for practice, recording , and gigging. Last week we played in a gymnasium and I had more than enough power. The clean sounds are excellent as the heavier classic rock tones. The effects are decent and do not make noise like my Fender did. f you are thinking of buying an amp I highly recommend the 100VT. The only drawbacks are its heavy (my studio is upstairs), and it doesn't come with the foot pedal. If you use an equalizer pedal or rack mount through the effects loop you can even widen your tonal capabilities, but it is not necessary. I have been playing in bands For over 30years and again I tell you to try this amp out. I'm sure you will like it. It amazed me.

Great, Versatile amp with near

By slugboy70

from San Francisco CA

Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT100 100W 2x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

While I am still in the process of learning all that this amp can do I still feel compelled to sing it's praises because, brother/sister, this amp can do a lot. The valvetronix system in which the sound is treated ALMOST gets that amp singing like a true valve amp. It has 22 amp models each with 3 presets a piece, the presets are very well done- usually with modeling amps the presets are a bit over the top with more than a little too much treble- not here- the presets are tastefully done and each is eminently useful in finding great tones. On top of the 66 presets (you see what I mean by a lot) you can bank and save 8 of your own custom tones using the 22 amp models plus a bevy of effects (Tape Echo and Rotary Speaker are my favorites, so far)- small quibble- the foot-switch is sold separately. It has a power knob that lets you adjust the wattage so you can actually play this monster in your bedroom or use it effectively for recording but it's at the higher volumes where this baby really sings- because the valves are NOT used just in the pre-amp stage you can really activate them at the higher volumes and that is where you get closer to the sound of a real valve amp but at a fraction of the cost.If you are looking for a versatile amp the Vox VT100 is not just the best bang for your buck but just a flat out great choice at any price. Seriously, now that I own one I would pay twice the price.

awesome amp

By sgguitarist

from illinois

Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT100 100W 2x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

to start with, i just played this for like an hour at guitar center, so i can only attest to sound, not durability or how long it lasts. but the sound is great. when i started to play it even i thought it was a tube amp, it was that good. the setup of the effects and amp moderls takes some getting used to, but once you know what youre doing, its a breeze. so, my take is its the best amp in its price range
