High-quality modeling meets the acclaimed Vox Valve Reactor tube technology.
The Vox Valvetronix VT15 is a 15W combo amp that gives you 22 amp models ranging from the latest high-gain types to hard-to-find boutique and vintage amps. The Vox VT15 also boasts a full complement of effects, allowing it to cover the needs of a wide variety of styles and performance techniques. The VT15 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. It replicates aspects that have an important influence on the sound of a tube amp, such as A/AB operation and the interaction of the power stage with the speaker.

I'm a tube amp vet. I currently own 2 Ampeg Superjet Reverbs and an Epiphone Blues Custom 30. I have owned a few Fender and Marshalls-tube jobs the lot. A few years ago I picked up the Vox AD15VT for the sake having a small amp that I could easily carry and not have to bring either of my pedal boards. I took it to a few jams and had no problem cutting over the drummer. ZERO problem. But you need a stand; get it off the floor! For home use it was nice too, absolutely love the tone-hybrid or not. I just plain like it and it responds to my bluesy style just as readily as any tube amp I've ever played through. It is 99.9% as good to my ear. And folks listening just think it sounds good! Musicians and layman listeners alike.So I got a VT15 a few days ago and took that out to a blues jam too...and again-no problem cutting over the drummer or the rest of the band and the tones are STILL great. Maybe better. Thankyou for the independent reverb! I bitched about that plenty on the AD models. Love all the improvements (but why no tuner? Wouldn't need to carry any pedals at all, save for volume/wah) I am very seriously thinking of getting another VT15 and playing them in stereo. Should be all the stage volume I could need and would give a nice spread. If I get into a bigger club, I'll mic it. Sound guys LOVE 15 watt amps!!!I like the 2 AC15 models the best, but I find the other Vox and Fender and Marshall models useful too, as well as Boutique Clean, which actually grits up nicely with some gain. I have no use for the metal stuff. Not my bag. I will say though that cranked up-all that high gain stuff does seem to break up well and maintain a good, thick tone. Like a headsmen's axe!This is a very good amp for me. I'm a weekend warrior; no idea if somebody could actually take one of these on the road for nightly use.

I really wanted to give this amp 5 stars all the way. It has the BEST sound of any modeling amplifier, and can cover any sound, from super clean to the heaviest metal sound. However, this amp makes an annoying hissing crackling noise WHILE YOU PLAY YOUR GUITAR. After I tried tweaking all of the settings, especially the noisegate, I took it into my local repair center. Long story short, they said that the software used to create the sound was low quality, hence the noise. If you want this amp, play it extensively in a quiet room and listen to it carefully before you buy.

Despite the constant white noise, it's still a great little amp. I usually play alternative or classic rock, and it works great for that kind of thing. Even the metal setting sound pretty great to my ears, though I rarely use them. I play a Schecter Solo-6 custom through this little beast, and I can get everything from warm, jazzy cleans to scooped metal. Well, it doesn't sound quite as good as say, a Roland Jazz or a SLO, but it does what it does quite well. I definitely would reccommend this as a bedroom-style amp. Once you start to crank it, the 8 inch speaker shoves ice picks into your ears.
Everything you would possibly need to get practically any tone you want. Plenty of effects and models without having so many you get overwhelmed.
For the most part, it's built solidly. I've dropped it from three feet in the air(not on purpose, of course) and it still worked like a champ. However, there's a constant buzzing coming from either the power amp, or the speaker. The noise gate doesn't dampen it at all. I reseated the tube, because I thought that might be the problem. Well, that fixed the second buzzing I heard, but not the other white noise. Try before you buy if you can, or if you don't mind the buzzing(like me, I just use it to practice, not record or anything) it is fairly good quality. You don't notice it when you're playing anyways.
With the recent price drop, it's a much better value for the money than it was when I got it(used, Spring of '10, about the same price as now). Definitely great value for the money.
This is a great sounding amp. The effects sound good as well. And since they lowered the price on this thing, it is even a better deal now. The fact that they use an actual tube brings a real quality to the sound that this thing generates.
You get so much for the money.The perfect practice amp.If your looking for your "tone" you'll find it in this amp!Great effects too.I recommend buying the vfs 5 foot switch for switching programs.The vt does take time to learn but it's worth every penny.
As far as budget amps go, this is probably one of the best I've ever played. It takes a little tweaking to get the tone where you want it, and if you don't know how to balance the volume/tone on your guitar with your amps settings you might get a clean tone that sounds a bit sterile. That said, there's so many different combinations you can get out of it that it's hard not to find a setting that works for you. I have a MIM strat like everyone else and their dog, and I still get a great sound out of this setup.
I just started guitar but have played bass for a few years. This was my first guitar amp I have purchased but I have messed around with guitars before on Marshall amps.Although my knowledge is minimal even I can tell this amp is a no brainer. The sound is crisp and clean and the different amp models will keep you occupied for a long time. The power level selector is awesome. Turn down the power level and crank the volume for great quiet sound.I have yet to fool around with all the functions but I'm already happy.
I started out with a Line 6. This amp blows it away!!! Amazing sound quality.
This amp is the greatest amp i have ever used. i love it. its so easy to find that perfect amount of distortion to just slightly add edge. or to just destroy minds with it. the 22 amp models are awesome. In a comparison between ANY of these vt vox amps and the newer vox vt+ amps... the old vt amps (like this one) win for one reason only. when using amp effects there is a simple button labeled bypass to cancel them out. on the vt+ theres some complicated system i have yet to figure out in order to bypass. trust me Vox Valvetronix Vt(NOT plus) is a great amp. just choose the watts that are best for you.
After searching up amps for months to replace my beginner, starter-pack 10-watt I found this bad boy. $200 with a $50 rebate only added to how badly I wanted this amp. I couldn't hazard a guess at how accurate the amp models are, but finding something you like is inevitable with all of the presets (with an independent reverb knob). I still have to buy the footswitch for it, so I can't comment on that, but I honestly have no complaints about this amp. The attenuator in the back is also a nice feature; you can adjust how much wattage you're actually pumping out (from 0 to 15 watts, but it's probably between 15 and 20 watts at its loudest).Overall a kick-ass amp and a must for anyone who loves messing around with features (just read the directions, first!)
When I first got this amp, I was a little disappointed. The buttons were a little overwhelming, and the amp and effects parameters seemed really hard to adjust. However, a little time reading the manual goes a long way. Adjusting parameters, saving presets, switching channels and banks: all a piece of cake. Not to mention the amp models and effects. The amp models are quite good, you'll soon pick favorites from among them. The effects are quite fantastic, most notably the delay. Other things like Rotary and Pitch are a little superfluous, but fun to play with. I do wish that it would let you mix and match different effects, although it does come with some preset mixed effects.Aesthetically, it is very nice. My other wish is that it had a 1/4" output in addition to the 1/8" headphone output, but that's not a huge deal.Overall, a really great amp. They're a good deal less now than when I bought it. It's really a steal!
Absolutly astounded! Lovly little amp and loud! its more of a 20 or 25 watt id say. The effects are really great, i would say supirior modeling to line 6 though just slightly harder to figure out at once. And the sound is very impressive, the different amp models sound amazing! This little amp is light, affordable and sounds great. Godd for clean-blues-rock-metal.
