    High-quality modeling meets the acclaimed VOX Valve Reactor tube technology in this 50W 1x12.

    The VOX Valvetronix VT50 is a 50W 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 VT50 amplifier also boasts a full complement of effects, allowing it to cover the needs of a wide variety of styles and performance techniques. The VOX Valvetronix includes 66 preset programs, including 22 song programs that simulate the guitar sounds of famous guitarists. Even beginning players can enjoy serious guitar sound right away.

    The VOX Valve Reactor circuit is the key factor that separates 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
    • 50W combo amp
    • VOX Valve Reactor circuit uses a 12AX7 to produce real tube power amp sound

    • 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

    I bought one of these bad boys about a month ago and I have nothing but good things to say about it. Preset tones may not sound exactly like the amps that they are supposed to mimic, but if you can try to simply look at the amp settings more as just another sort of tone knob or something, you can really let your imagination go and get some truely beautiful tones out of the amp and really make it your own. Another thing I love about the amp is the watt knob on the back. I like this so much because I can still crank the gain all the way up to get some awesome distortion and turn down the watts and I dont have to worry about blowing everyone else in the house away. Twice as much the volume knob isnt so sensitive then either. This amp, unlike some other high power amps, does sound very good at softer volumes as well, which is a huge perk if you live with anyone else. This amp is also pretty frigan loud. I can jam with my friend who plays a 100 watt marshall and i can keep up with him just fine when we jam and has no problems cutting over a drum set. I have not had any problems with reliability, although it has only been a month. Everything still works and feels like it is in great shape. The only thing I could say bad about the amp is that it is pretty heavy. I personally think all of the effects sound great. You need to play with them for a little bit to get the tone you want. Some of the distortion's sound kind of cheap at first, but you get used to them, and again you just have to play with them for a bit to get what you want out of it. However the clean chanels all sound superb. if you crank the gain on the clean channels you can get a really nice distortions which are great for punk or metal or classic rock and blues, which is what I normally do for my distortions. And above all, this amp is inexpensive! Its all analogue power too with a 12AX7 tube for great tonal quality. Eveyone who hears it usually asks and says it sounds like a tube amp. I feel that this is an amp that should not go overlooked if you are looking to save a buck. Never for even a second did I regret this purchase. Happy shopping!

    This is a perfect amp for the studio. The sounds are great with my Strat, LP Gold Top (P90's), and my RG470. The overdrive is creamy, the effects are pristine. Now the problems: There are 8 presets that can be programmed by the user and selected via the footswitch. However, the volume spikes and then goes to the set level when switching between presets. Also, the effects can not be altered (i.e. Tap Tempo, Rotary speed, etc.) while in preset mode. In order to use the footswitch for Tap Tempo, you have to be in manual mode which limits you to one amp model. To top this off, if you start with overdrive in that particular model then THERE IS NO WAY TO GO TO A CLEAN CHANNEL!! What good is this on stage?? The only way to fix this is to run my RP7 pedal through the amp but why would I buy a modeling amp to use my old effects pedal?! This is a great amp crippled by poor design. I have a Bugera V55 on order to replace this amp.

      Bang for your buck, and then some

      By Jose Dominguez

      from Dominican Republic

      Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT50 50W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

      Power, Tone, Value, Versatility, Looks...i dont know a hybrid amp that beats Valvetronix...and the price is so right...definately an improvement from your first little gig amp, such improvement youd be hard pressed to part with it
      this amp is amazing...im gonna Tstart with the obvious, Vox's Valve Reactor tecnology kicks butt. The sounds coming out of this thing are warm and articulate...the Fender models sound very clear and Blackfaceish like we love it...then the Marshall sound has the crunch and headroom we want....and the AC30, OMG...We bought this amp for our church two years ago, and it is a work horse...two rehearsals and 4 to 5 performances a week...i cant talk about the other amp models since i dont use them much but with the 3 band EQ and Reverb, Gain, Master and Volume knobs i can pretty much get all the tones i like with just the AC30TB model although i use the Fenders and Plexi too. The only thing missing is an Extention Cab output...it has the external cab out but it mutes the amp speaker...the onboard FX sound killer...takes pedals and multiFX real good.
      Built like a tank...heavy...my back has suffered from carrying it...the grille is cool looking...people look at it and think youre gonna play metal, then these sweet sparkly tones come out...decieving if you will...but you can go to the high gain side of town with it too
      For the price youre getting a lot more than youre paying...a warm sounding first of all, accurate modeling and most of all everyday usability and reliability...want more? it looks great.

      as far as issues with it...two years, and havent had to replace the valve...although i know a lot of folks do it, havent felt it needs to be replaced...the amp got a little crazy after a rainy oudoors gig and volume dropped next time i turned it on so after a few mins of fiddleying with the knobs and a reset it was back to normal.

      Solid, both in build & performance

      By LOSTVENTURE

      from Charlotte,NC

      Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT50 50W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

      I've been playing this amp for two weeks now so I can't comment on long term issues, except to say that I have had very satisfactory experiences with my other voxes, the Tone Lab, since it was introduced, and my Pathfinder 15R.First of all, there is no getting around having to read the owner's manual. The amp is complicated, even for someone like me who is only going to use the "clean" tones available. The amp offers plenty to work with once you get to working with it. I'm going to be playing the amp as part of a worship service. I play several Fenders, an Epiphone Gold Top and a Hallmark (Mosrite clone)and they all really shine with this amp.My only gripe is the editing controls. Vox got it so right with the Tone Lab's 3 knobs and visual display. The VT50 only offers a knob and two buttons, and no display. It's workable but not near as functionally friendly as the Lab.I do have to say that the general performance, after just two weeks, is getting more impressive every day. It's too bad that the 5-button pedal is extra, but I recommend getting it.My original search was simply for a low wattage amp (30-50 watts) and a 12" speaker. I played Fender, Peavey and a Line 6 that all met those criteria and picked this amp because it had the best warm clean tones. I wish that it wasn't so heavy, but that is the price you pay for good construction. Funny, since I also felt that way about my Dual Shownman in '69.

      Can't beat it for the money and size

      By LesPaul1000

      from West Virginia

      Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT50 50W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

      I use this as a practice amp when I can't crank my modded out Carvin Legacy. The wattage control is just too cool, this amp has a great tube feel and presence at all volumes. The 50 watts is LOUD, plenty loud for most anything with an amp stand to lift it off the floor. The amp models and effects are very good and very genuine, with a little tweaking you quickly learn to dial in sounds easily with this amp. The amp could have been built better, it just does not feel solid. The stock speaker is also garbage. I often plug my into my cab and it sounds loads and loads better. I bought the footswitch with mine, would be a pain without it. All in all. Bang for the buck is this amps thing. Tons of sounds and tons of effects from a tube powered circuit with awesome tone for the money.

      Awesome Clear Tone

      By Cabpilot

      from Maine

      Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT50 50W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

      I bought this little Vox amp a year ago because it had every bit as good clear tone as my old Fender Twin Reverb. The Vox's tube generates a 100% Fender Twin clear tone and reverb is amazing. Much easier to carry around to shows and versatile. I can pre-program amp settings and with a push of the button have the same sound everynight. The 50 watts is plenty loud for the stage. If you are amp shopping don't leave until you try one.

      Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT50 50W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

      okay, i hate to write this but i need to.... this amp sounded great. my lead guitar player has the vt100 and my brother has the new version of that. all three amp have great sound but all three have had issues with them (mostly having to do with the wattage knob) i tour and play at a number of church's where i live , i love the sound ... but the amps break. plain and simple

      Well I have 3 I think I like the amp

      By Hohoagogo

      from Charlotte

      Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT50 50W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

      I gave my brother my first one, bought another one, and bought my step-daughter the 30 watter. I have played every amp it models but the dumble, and well, I can't tell the difference. You won't be able too.I replaced the tube with a groove tube.It has plenty of bass with 12,but the 10 inch thirty watter cuts throught the mix better. I used to play the original line 6 300 watter, and to me the vox is a better modeling amp.Oh yeah buy the footswitch,and yeah I have gigged with mine for 3 years now.Wish it had more effects is my only gripe, better yet more single effects.They like to combine alot of my favorites instead of just single effects.

      Well....

      Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT50 50W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

      This is a okay amp, still i am an armature (the way I hear it my friends think I don't give myself enough credit) guitarist and still haven't gotten all through all the features wanted with this amp. Its loud at 15watts i can't crank it past 1/4 of the master because i live in an apartment. The amp feature are great for anything you need from classic to rock but if your a metal enthusiast you may need a pedal to play some hard core song, this amp has distortion but if your crazy for it like i am you would want a little more aside from that the amp did everything I wanted it to do, do some research and visit a local store and try the amp set it to the things YOU want to hear .

      Its perfect for what it is!

      Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT50 50W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

      I cover WIDE genres live and this does it perfect! It really doesn't sound like a modeling amp, it sounds real. The crunch - type tones are the best but with an overdrive pedal in front of it it can perfectly do metal. My one complaint is on the pitch shifter 1 octave up it sounds all weird and out of tune. other than that its awesome!

      good nuff for me

      Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT50 50W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

      Two months after i bought my AD50VT, my local shops started selling this newer model (figures). From what i gather, this new one is better. However, with that said, let me recommend this whole Vox Valvetronix series, both old and new models. It seems to give a nice Marshall (80s UK) and nice Fender Baseman sound, so really i don't know if any of the other 20 amps that it models are really needed. Buy it, good stuff. Wear it out and be happy.
