About This Listing

I bought this Vox VT30 about 11 years ago as I wanted something that was small, still had some punch, and could give me a lot of different sounds. It filled all those requirements perfectly and is still in great condition as it has never left the house. Well, we moved house in 2011 so I guess it's been outside once! I had a custom cover made for it which has always been on the amp unless I was actually playing, so it's been well looked after. I'm selling now as I've updated my setup based around an HX Stomp and am looking to get a new amp more suitable for that.

This would make a perfect first amp or practise amp, and has many more miles on it yet.

Here's a review of the amp from back in the day:

And here's a bunch of technobabble I found from digging on the internet!

Vox Valvetronix VT Series VT30

Sophisticated modelling technology combined with the VOX Valve Reactor power amp circuit that uses a 12AX7 vacuum tube results in sound quality that overwhelms the competition. Announcing the VT series --- the latest combo amps in the Valvetronix series, featuring simulation sounds of famous guitarists.

  • VOX Valve Reactor circuit that uses a 12AX7 to produce real tube power amp sound.
  • Twenty-two realistic amp models are built-in, ranging from the latest high-gain types to unobtainable legendary boutique amps and vintage amps.
  • Twelve high-quality effects including independent reverb, rivalling the quality of dedicated units
  • Three banks (basic, effected, and song) are provided for each amp model, giving you a total of sixty-six preset programs.
  • Twenty-two programs of "song presets" simulate the sounds of famous guitarists.
  • You can save eight of your own edited programs.
  • Power level control allows you to adjust the output wattage of the power amp, meaning that you can obtain that distinctive power amp distortion even at low output levels.
  • Headphone output lets you practice at home, even at night.
  • The VT50/100 provide an external speaker output, and the VT100 provides an effect loop for expandability.
  • By using the VFS5 foot switch you can use your foot to change programs or turn effects on/off.

VOX Valve Reactor circuit delivers true tube power amp sound

The VOX Valve Reactor circuit is the key factor that separates the Valvetronix series from other modelling amps. The 100% analogue original power amp circuit actually has the same power amp circuit as a full-tube amp, using a 12AX7 miniature triode to reproduce a distinctive tube amp sound unattainable by digital technology.

In other words, it replicates aspects that have an important influence on the sound of a tube amp, such as the power amp's class A/AB operation and the interaction of the power stage with the speaker, thus reproducing not only the response of the original amp's power amp circuitry, but also the power amp's distortion as well as the nuances and subjective sound pressure of a full-tube amp.

Since there's a power level control that allows you to decrease just the volume without affecting the tonal character, you can adjust the volume while enjoying the same sense of drive as when the master volume is at maximum. This means that you can obtain the exact same sound even when you're unable to play at maximum volume, such as when you're at home.

Twenty-two amp models use high-quality modelling technology

Another indispensable aspect of the Valvetronix series is the modelling technology that is the source of its diverse amp sounds. The sounds of twenty-two tube amps sought-after by the guitarists are built in, including vintage amps that are now hard to find, as well costly boutique amps. The coverage includes not only vintage types, but also the latest high-gain types, accommodating a wide variety of playing techniques and styles.

Twelve high-quality effects deliver the essentials with plenty of variation
Effects are an important part of creating your guitar sound. The VT series contains twelve effects with quality rivalling that of dedicated stand-alone processors, ranging from familiar standards to fresh new types. Of these, the reverb effect is always available, and three of the other eleven types are composite effects that allow up to three effects to be used simultaneously. Noise reduction can also be used at the same time. Each effect has multiple parameters that you can adjust to create the precise sound you want. There's also a tap switch that makes it easy to set the delay time or modulation speed. Independent reverb is provided, giving you an even broader range of sound-creating possibilities.

Sixty-six preset programs including "song presets" that simulate the sounds of famous guitarists

For each amp model, the VT series provides a "song preset" that simulates the guitar sound of a famous guitarist, giving you a total of twenty-two such presets. These song presets make it easy to instantly obtain the guitar sound of well-known songs everyone has heard. Each amp model also has a "basic preset" that represents the most typical settings, as well as an "effected preset" that takes full advantage of the effects, totalling forty-four presets. Together with the song presets, you have a total of sixty-six preset programs. Of course, you can also save your own favourite edited programs as one of eight user programs.

Headphone output and expandability allows home recording and late-night practice
There's a headphone output that can be connected to headphones or to your mixer or multi-track recorder. Since the tonal characteristics of the cabinet are applied to this output, the sound will not be impaired even if you make a direct-line recording or listen through headphones, ensuring that you continue to get that great spatial depth and character. The VT50/100 provides a speaker output that allows an external speaker to be connected, and the VT100 provides an effect loop that's convenient for connecting an external effect, giving you the flexibility to configure your system for any situation.
