OVERVIEW

Vox takes modeling to the next level in this 1x6.5" combo.

In the 20 years since modeling amps were introduced to the world, their sound quality has advanced dramatically thanks to the progression of digital technology. Today, along with tube amps and transistor amps, modeling amps have earned a firm position among the amps chosen by guitarists. When Vox began work on the VX I and VX II, they had come to the conclusion that conventional modeling methods had been already been exhausted and could be taken no further.

In order to achieve advanced sound, a new method was developed. This innovative new method, known as VET (Virtual Element Technology), models the actual circuits and electrical components of an amplifier. This more sophisticated approach to modeling results in a more accurate and more articulate representation of the desired amplifier. Taking this process one step further, Vox also reengineered the conventional guitar cabinet, opting for a one-piece, sealed enclosure that enhances the sound quality and performance of the VX amplifier range.

The circuits at work in the VX I and VX II offer guitarists the best of both digital and analog amplifier design. The Virtual Element Technology at the heart of these amplifiers unlike any technology ever seen in guitar amplification is represents an evolutionary step for modeling amplifier technology.

-Proprietary VET (Virtual Element Technology) models the actual circuitry of the original amp
-The power amp stage employs an FET-equipped analog circuit and also models the sag and compression that is characteristic of classic amplifiers
-A sealed, one-piece speaker cabinet allows for overwhelming sonic performance and eliminates unwanted vibrations
-A unique bass-reflex design delivers an unprecedented amount of rich low end for an amplifier of this size
-The ABS cabinet material offers extremely lightweight, durability, and unique acoustical properties
-Ultra-lightweight design of 8.4lb. shatters expectations for guitar amps
-A total of eleven extremely accurate built-in amp models, including coveted vintage amps and sought-after boutique amps
-A total of eight reengineered built-in effects: four types of modulation and four types of delay/reverb
-Power level control allows you to lower the volume without sacrificing dynamics
-Eleven song presets that instantly simulate the sound of historic songs and famous guitarists
-Two customizable user programs
-JamVOX III modeling software is included (VX II only)
-USB audio interface function with ASIO support (VX II only)
-Editor/librarian software is provided, with support not only for PC, but also iOS devices (VX II only)
-Headphone output and AUX input for silent practice or playing along with your favorite tracks
-An optional VFS5 foot switch allows for expanded user programmability

New VET (Virtual Element Technology) modeling technology
This technology is referred to as œmodeling because it is based on the existence of an original amplifier. In the case of rare vintage amps, it is not unusual for individual units of the same model to sound different due to the passage of time and the varying environments in which they have been used. For these reasons, the selection of the original amp has a major influence on the accuracy and sound quality of a modeling amp. Since the analysis is based on the output sound, the condition of the amp is also very influential, and the unavoidable reliance on the human ear has an even greater effect. These factors make it difficult to say that the modeling accuracy extends to the tonal changes arising from the interaction between the tone controls, the volume, and the various components.

In order to resolve these issues, we completely rethought previous methods of modeling for the VX I and VX II. This led to the development of VET (Virtual Element Technology), which models the actual circuit of the original amp. An enormous amount of information about the vacuum tubes and each individual component was carefully analyzed in order to accurately reproduce the characteristics of the desired amplifier, as they were originally intended.

A diverse array of amps and effects allows for comprehensive sound-shaping
The eleven built-in amp models include VOX' legendary AC30 as well as also several high-gain, crunch, and clean sounds. A VX amplifier is the one unit you need to achieve a variety of coveted amplifier sounds ranging from classic vintage effects to costly boutique amps. A full complement of effects is also provided, including four types of modulation and four types of delay/reverb. The effects featured in the VX amplifier range have been also been reengineered to deliver more accurate and articulate tones.

The eleven preset programs take full advantage of these amps and effects to simulate the signature sounds of famous guitarists and classic songs.

A redesigned power amp stage, complete with an FET equipped analog circuit
Responsiveness, dynamic overdrive, and incredible sound quality ” for the guitarist, these are the unique attractions of a tube amp, and are the reason that tube amps have continued to be sought by guitarists for decades. These characteristics are significantly influenced by the power amp stage of the amplifier. A new, FET-based analog power amp was designed specifically for the VX I and VX II to accurately reproduce the characteristics of a tube amp. This power amp design employs technology inherited from the Valvetronix series and succeeds in reproducing the distinctive sag of a classic tube amp.

Unique bass-reflex design and sealed cabinet produce a rich low-end
In addition to the circuit design, Vox considered all aspects that impact the sound, paying careful consideration to the cabinet and speaker design.

In order to obtain a more authentic sound and produce sound more efficiently, Vox employed a uniquely designed-bass reflex structure in conjunction with a sealed, one-piece speaker enclosure. While providing an external appearance appropriate for a guitar amp, the cabinet's shape, the curvature of the front and back surfaces, and the internal reinforcement ribs have all been carefully designed to optimize the resonance. A conventional wooden baffle was chosen to retain the projection and tone of a classic guitar amp, while the cabinet is constructed from lightweight and durable ABS. The combination of these two materials yields a superior acoustical property that sounds superb yet retains easy portability. All of these unique elements work together to bring forth a level of sound quality that was previously unachievable with an amp of this class.

Optional footswitch expands the number of presets
Using the optional VOX VFS5 footswitch expands the number of unique user programs to eight on the VX I and VX II amplifiers.

    Comments about Vox VXI 15W 1x6.5 Digital Modeling Guitar Combo Amp:

    Upon receiving this amp as a gift I could not stop playing. It has the tones I have always searched and more. I just added it as a 2nd amp to my set up, it's clean coming out of my c9 snd that goes into my vox wah then Ditto pedal into a 2 10 rogue and it rocks. Despite the amp has mid control it still sounds amazing. I look forward to recording with it and doing some jam sessions. I wish they had this kinda thing 24 years ago!

      Comments about Vox VXI 15W 1x6.5 Digital Modeling Guitar Combo Amp:

      I've got plenty of guitar amps, big and small. Yet, I found that by the time I go hook up all the pedals of interest, that it was too much hassle. This VOC VXi solves that problem as it has real good amp emulations and effects built-in. I created a AC30 clean/chorus program saved to User Preset 1 and then a 4x10 overdrive/delay in User Preset 2. Thats all I need for practicing Chords and Melodies. Its helped my songwriting already. I did try recording the Headphone out and that worked fine.

        Comments about Vox VXI 15W 1x6.5 Digital Modeling Guitar Combo Amp:

        I previously wrote a 3-star review of this amp, based on a comparison with my reference amps. Played loudly, I wasn't (and still am not) impressed with the VX1 sound. But hold the phone...

        Late one night (rust never sleeps), I dialed the volume down to a 'dark night of the soul' practice level and a whole different animal emerged...and it was BRILLIANT. With the goofy 'modulation' (a.k.a. 'effects') turned off, 'delay/reverb' set to just a touch of 'spring', gain set at 75%, and treble, bass, volume, and power level all set at 50%, this cheap-looking plastic thing came ALIVE with string dynamics I've never experienced with a solid-state amp (including the ones I've modified).

        So I take it back! I almost hate to say it, but the VX1 may be the ONLY quiet practice amp a serious musician needs. Don't crank it, but savor its quiet grace.

        Rock on!

                  I have always used MESA or Orange. I don't play professionally anymore (emo is over). But I still jam with the guys and work on songs. This thing sounds great! I can't believe the price on this, deal of the year! If you are looking at mod amps take Vox over Line 6 IMO.
