Vox Valvetronix AD50VT 50w 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp

Sound Quality

I play a Les Paul primarily and can get a myriad of tones out this amp. The 80's channel nails the JCM800 sound that every rock band had back in the day. The AC30 tone is as sweet and syrupy as the original, it would make Brian May happy. The nu-metal and hi-gain amp models are harmonically rich and would work great live or in the studio, without having to lug a huge cab and head with you. And the cleaner channels are very nice, with the 4x10 setting acting like a bassman on the edge of breaking up.


I've only had the amp for a short time, only time will tell how reliable the amp is. More than likely the first test of this amp will bewhen it comes time to replace the tube.

General Comments

This is my first experience with Vox. I own other amps by Marshall and Fender, and this amp can run with them both. This amp has also redefined my opinion of what a Vox amp is. It's more than an AC30, but it can be as well. Go try one out, you will be pleasantly suprised no matter what type of music you play.
