Vox has just announced two new amp models, the VX15 GT and VX50 GTV. Both lightweight combos come loaded with 10 onboard amp models and eight effects, with the larger 50-Watt version including Nutube technology and a USB output.
The 10 amp models included are named as follows: Deluxe CL, Boutique CL, Boutique OD, Vox AC30, Vox AC30TB, Brit 1959, Brit 800, Brit VM, SL-OD and Double Rec, You can also bypass the amp modelling altogether, handy if you want to use it with acoustic guitar or a keyboard. That list really should be enough for most players. You also get 8 built-in effects as well: chorus, flanger, phaser, tremolo, analogue delay, tape echo, plus spring and hall reverbs.
Just browsing that list indicates that there’s a lot here for your money. But then again that’s the idea behind Vox’s VET (Virtual Element Technology) modelling: Plenty of useful options and lots of features for those counting their pennies. These amps also have a handy power level control, cab sim-enabled line out, tuner, Aux In and headphone output.
The new 50-watt VX50 GTV adds Vox’s Nutube technology to the preamp section and also has a USB output and integration with the Vox Tone Room editor and librarian software.
Both cabinets are made from strong, lightweight ABS material and have a bass reflex system to help project and shape the combo’s sound. The price point on both models is very good and I can imagine they will be popular. We should start to see these two new models around the end of March.
As ever, make sure you take a listen to the demo video below of the VX50 GTV model and see what you think. It certainly has a lot of useful features packed into that small frame, I was quite impressed by all it can do and especially at the price Vox is asking for this model.
RRP – GBP 129 for the VX15 GT and GBP 219 for the VX50 GTV
