Product Description

The VT40X features a brand new modeling engine and sounds even better than ever! By using VET (Virtual Element Technology), which is based on an analysis of the components and amp circuits themselves, VTX amplifiers produce the most accurate and realistic amplifier sounds to date. These new amplifiers also feature a multi-stage Valvetronix tube preamp. This preamp design incorporates authentic analog circuitry to achieve the subtle tonal adjustments and capture the nuances that are distinctive of vacuum tube amps. In addition to this clever circuitry, VTX amplifiers feature a tightly sealed cabinet and a proprietary bass-reflex designed to deliver stunning resonance. Go beyond the realm of previous modeling amps with the new VOX Tone Room editing software that lets you customize the existing amps and effects yourself, or create your own!

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Great Sound (Plus A Really Fun Thing To Use)
Reviewed in Canada 🇨🇦 on August 18, 2019
I am reviewing the 100 watt, 1x12" VT100X that I bought and have been playing for over a month now.

I have been playing guitar (and piano and other strings) for over 40 years so I have owned and played dozens of amps over the years. I started off with a little solid-state Peavey amp when I was a kid that, at the time, I thought was the coolest thing ever (it was all I could afford).

When I bought my first Fender tube amp a few years later, I realized the difference between a solid-state amp and tube amp (i.e. tone/sound quality). I was still playing a no-name electric but when I got my first Strat and played it with my Fender Reverb, I realized what I had been missing. Since then, I have been a strict tube-amp guy (or valve amp.....whatever) except during a few gigs here and there when I have had to plug into someone else's solid-state unit.

My Bognar 212 has been my primary amp for many years. I also have an old Fender Bassman that I still love to use regularly. This Vox VT-100X that I bought has the modelling for the 410 Bassman pretty well nailed - I was uber-impressed. I am not sure what the tone would sound like through the smaller speaker amps (eg. the Vox VT20X or 40X) but on the 100X, the notes start to break down/distort gently and perfectly depending on how aggressive I play - almost exactly like my Bassman setup. However, due to age and my inability (or lack of desire) to lug around heavy gear anymore, I was looking for a new, lighter weight option that was easy to bring to smaller gigs and jam sessions.

I tried lots of amps at local guitar shops over a month and re-tried a number of them as well. I have quite a few guitars but I used my 1972 Telecaster Thinline and 2008 PRS Mccarty Hollowbody II to demo some different lighter weight amps. In the end, I narrowed my choice down to a Fender Blues Deluxe tube amp, a Boss Katana 100 solid-state and the Vox VT100x. I initially was drawn to the Blues Deluxe because:
1) it fit the size and weight I wanted
2) it was a tube amp
3) it sounded great

During a jam session, it came up that I was looking for a new amp and a buddy told me I should consider "modelling amps". After he explained what they were, I told him where to go. However, the next week at one of the music stores I was at, I asked a sales rep I knew about them. I played a couple and that is when I kind of enjoyed the Boss Katana 50. I went back a few times and played that thing. I had already played a couple of dozen amps at various stores and I was about to commit to the Boss Katana until another player at a jam I was at told me about the Vox. He told me his backstory: valve amp lover/solid-state hater....was at a gig a year before and plugged into a Vox VT100x and was blown away. He started telling me all of the features about the Vox (he sounded like a salesman), compared it to his line of tube amps etc. and after 20 minutes or so, had me convinced that I should try one.

In the city where I live, I could only find one store that carried a VT100X so I drove there and spent a few hours fiddling around on it with my Tele. I immediately loved about 20% of the clean sound presets and 10% of dirty ones. (They didn't have the amp hooked up to a computer so there wasn't any access to the many additional preset tones available from the Vox Toneroom software.) I manually played around with the tone nobs and built-in effects like reverb, chorus, delay etc. and started to get more impressed. However, I wasn't sold. I liked it but I was a tube-guy-snob, so.....

A few days later, however, this amp was still nagging at me. I had had a lot of fun playing around with it and had been able to dial in A LOT of cool tones. I decided to go back but this time I brought my PRS (Paul Reed Smith). *boom* What a difference...this amp sounded so much better to me with my PRS (and remember, it didn't sound bad to begin with). I spent another hour with it and decided to buy it then and there. However, the store wouldn't match online prices so here we are writing a review a month after my Amazon purchase.

A VERY IMPORTANT NOTE: This thing sounds very good but it is also a ton of FUN. I don't know about PC users but if you have a Mac, download the software and have some fun (this thing is virtually plug-and-play). There are 60 preset sounds/tones that you can literally just click on and if you consider all of the simple clicks you can do within each preset to dramatically change the sound, you are looking at hundreds of sounds. (There are lots of YouTube videos that go into better detail about this than I can so do more research there.) Some preset tones sound like poo to me but many sound good, some really good, and a handful have blown my mind.

The big thing I LOVE about the presets is, once you click on a preset tone, you can then easily tweak them yourself, simply with one click if you like. Many of the presets are named after songs (eg. Day Tripper to you give a classic Beatles tone, Tie Your Mother Down to you give a Brian May/Queen tone, Rock This Town for a young Brian Setzer/Stray Cats sound, Brown Sugar for the Stones etc. (plus loads of metal, grunge, alternative and newer bands etc...don't worry, you younger players out there). There are also some obvious amp names like 'Orangeish Rock' if you want to have your amp sound to like an Orange amplifier (and it actually comes 95% close because my neighbour has one and we tested them side by side) or '4x10 Tweed' which, as it says so right on the computer screen, is meant to replicate a '59 (Fender) Bassman. You have AC 15, AC 30 and Boutique CL Vox amps, Marshalls and Boogies and other Fender amps, all of which sound either good or great. There are also other amp models (eg. Plexi) and brands (eg. Diezel - it is portrayed simply as 'Boutique Metal German Made 100w 4-channel head' because Vox cannot use the tradenames of other companies) but I am not a Marshall guy and have never played a Diezel or a Dumble so I cannot comment as to whether or not the modelling of those is accurate. As I mentioned earlier, the '4x10 Tweed' Bassman preset does a spectacular job replicating my Bassman (albeit at lower volumes).

Finishing off about the presets and personalizing them easily with a click or two: if you click 'Rock This Town' preset on your Mac for example, it will pop-up with a Bright 4x10 Tweed (Bassman) amp, spring reverb pedal, compressor pedal and tape echo pedal. I like the sound of this preset (with my PRS hollow body, it actually sounds VERY much like Brian Setzer's Gretsch on the song, Rock This Town), but I sometimes like to swap out the 'tape echo' pedal for a 'tremelo' pedal. That simple click obviously changes things quite a bit. One more mouse click changes things even more: I sometimes change the default 'Bright 4x10 Tweed' to a Fender Twin Reverb with a simple click and I suddenly have a brand new tone coming out of the 12" speaker that sounds fantastic. Now remember, I can (and still do) fiddle around with gain and high, mid, low and other effects if I want. HOWEVER, by doing what I just described, I am able to do some awesome sounding changes with just a couple of mouse clicks - I LOVE DOING IT THIS WAY NOW.

BOTTOM LINE: Had someone told me a couple of months ago that a solid-state (eg. Katana 50) or 'hybrid' amp (eg. Vox VT-100X) could sound like a tube amp, I would have openly laughed at them. (Actually, I did and have since apologized to one fella.) Despite the Katana 50 having different power settings for different applications (50watt, 25watt, 0.5watt for stage vs. apartment, for example) and an acoustic guitar input, I still found the Vox to be more versatile and offer more tonal choices, 'tweaking' flexibility, warmth and well, a genuine tube sound. Full disclaimer or truth whatever: there are some presets on the Vox that DO sound a little solid-state like but I ignore them and obviously stick with the very 'tubey' or 'valvey' presets. However, if you ignore all of the presets, don't plug it into your computer and treat the amp like a regular amp, it is naturally warm and has a surprisingly nice tube sound (if that makes sense to other old-timers out there).

It's been a little over a month now of playing through this amp every day and I am 100% happy with my purchase. I hope this review has been helpful.
