Vox Valvetronix AD50VT 50w 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp



Sound Quality

I give it a 7 stock. Decent/Good tone to base everything off of. Be prepared to do some things with this amp. Once you do, it sounds absolutely killer. Swap the speaker with a good Celestion(Or Speaker of your own taste) or run it through a good 2X12 or 4X12 because the Vox speaker is absolute garbage. The highs are harsh and the bass is flubby. I swapped it with a Celestion Classic Lead, mushy distortion is gone, flubby artificial bass is gone and it sounds great. I run it through a Classic Lead 2X12 when I need more volume. Swap the preamp tube. Since it only uses one, you can afford to put a good NOS tube in there. I use a Mullard, it's richer,fatter, and has much more warmth than the little generic one they put in there. The stock tube is really much too neutral.

Reliability/Durability

No trouble with it yet. Since it's hybrid, it should be more dependable than an all tube amp.

General Comments

Stock from the store, it's pretty middle of the road. Nothing special. After putting a good three hundred in it, it's killer. Also, don't blame the amp for crummy tone when you're feeding garbage into the signal (Bad pickups, crappy effects, etc). After a nice tube and speaker swap, feed nice 7/10 band EQ into this baby, and it will surprise you.
