Vox Valvetronix AD50VT 50w 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp



Sound Quality

My setup is: Gibson Les Paul Studio->wah->bad monkey overdrive->marshall regenerator->snarling dogs A/B selecter with A going to the vox and B going to an old peavey classic 20. This really sounds AMAZING especially when i look at how much i paid for it! I love being able to save two presets and also using the manual setting as a third channel. It really sounds like a tube amp but of course doesn't sound exactly like the real thing cranked up.

Reliability/Durability

The reliability sucks, this is my third one of these and is playing up again so it'll mean number 4 or a similar amp. It'd be great if anyone has any suggestions for fairly cheap valve amps. My first amp had a problem with the power level control, so when it reached a certain point there was a really nasty high pitched squealing sound. This was sorted out with another amp, but this soon messed up half way through when iwas playing! There was a really horrible loud humming noise and no guitar sound at all. The really scary thing was that if it was left on for a bit it had a really nasty electrical burning smell. Now I've got my third one of these and I've got the same problem with the power level as i had on my first one. It's REALLY pissing me off.

General Comments

I've been playing for 4ish years and used to have a marshall MG50dfx which never let me down for two or three years. I also have two Peavey amps, one is a Rage 158 and the other one of the old Classic 20s.These also havn't let me down once. The Vox valvtronix amps are great sounding and great value for money but I really don't think it's acceptable to be having so many faults with them. I really don't want to have to change to another amp as this is perfect for me, but I think I might have to.
