  • Vox Valvetronix Series Discontinued?

    Hey, i've been out of the electric scene for a few years.Back when I was playing electric it seemed these amps were the go to budget amp but as far as I can see they've been discontinued.

    I still have my AD30VT, are these fetching decent money nowadays?

    Cheers

    Computer amps don't gain value. But it it will be worth something on the second hand market just not so much.

      Are you not confusing it with a Tone port or a Pod when you say computer amp?

      The Valvetronix series were popular in their day and I dare say they would be sought after if they have indeed being discontinued.

        It should be worth 50-100 usd.

          Look, they are inexpensive, mass produced, modelling amps.
          There's nothing about them which would make them go up in value.
          Just like a computer, digital modelling amps at some point just become out-of-date as technology keeps evolving.

            Hey gaiz, I'm going to ask a question. Please provide responses congruent with my current opinion.
            The community here was awesome but the digs &amp; spirit of the place has been in decline ever since it became a business venture rather than a simple collective and this latest gong show really brought the chickens home to roost.<br><br>Necessity is the mother of invention, ergo: <a target="_blank" href="http://www.guitarampboard.com"><font color="#0000FF">www.guitarampboard.com</font></a>.<br><br>So long and thanks for all the fish, love izzy.<br><br>

              I can see how the old blue line Valvetronix amps might actually keep up a good value or even increase some. They were made for a moderately short period and they were pretty professional products. Also generally thought to be better sounding than their successors. ...Not to mention they had somewhat more traditional Vox cosmetics, a trait not to be underestimated.

              The way more bargain quality Valvetronix series that came after them - and especially the low power end of the range - likely isn't too good in holding up value. Maybe it's different when they become unknown vintage in 40 - 50 years. Similarly to way how today you can pretty much sell any POS cheapie tube amp from 1940 - 1970's with a ludicrously high price. Time will tell....

              As far as I know, the Valve Reactor -based lines of products definitely aren't discontinued. The old AD, VR and VT lines might be but didn't Korg just introduce VTX series that features class-D amplification and power -type tube instead of the 12AX7 the older Valve Reactor scheme used?

                    They were basicly moderling amps using mini computers, they lose value, all moderling amps do as the next big thing comes.

                        The only modeling amps to break this trend have been the Kemper and Axe-FX (started out cheaper, then gained value as word got out). But just about all modeling amps will lose value over time.

                          I obviously didn't mean the value would be like that of a sought after antique, just that a product that had a strong reputation would hold it's value or rise slightly once it's no longer in circulation.

                          I've been proven right, these are going for 20% more than they were 3 years ago before I packed it away.That's better than any savings account would have given me in the time.

                          PS I'm not new here, I just left after all the bellends joined.

                            So 3 years ago they were going for 60 bucks? Do you have a warehouse full of these things? Music gear is seldom an investment, SS amps and PA gear are probably the worst.

                              Good. Worst POS "amp" I've ever owned. I made a big mistake trading a nice TC chorus pedal for one. Haven't tuned the thing on in over a year
