VOX adds compact ToneLab ST to Valvetronix line

Frankfurt, Germany (April 3, 2009) -- VOX Amplification introduces the latest addition to their popular ToneLab line of Valvetronix multi-effects modeling pedals, the ToneLab ST. 

This compact floor unit features an assignable expression pedal and two footswitches for live performance control. Guitarists can create 50 of their own programs or use any of the 50 new preset programs, including 20 song-specific presets for recreating the sound of classic rock songs. The 12AX7 vacuum tube (valve) in the ToneLab ST is designed to accurately capture the tone quality of a tube-driven amp.

In addition to 33 amplifier recreations, the ToneLab ST also provides accurate simulations of 11 distinctive speaker cabinets. The cabinet and amp models can be mixed and matched to suit the user's preference. Twenty-five popular effects are included, ranging from classic stomp-box"pedals to studio-quality rack-style effects. The ToneLab ST also serves as a full function ASIO-compatible USB Audio interface, allowing for a direct connection to computer-based recording software.

Other connections include a line output that can be set for recording use or for feeding into an external amplifier, as well as a line input for CDs, MP3 files and more. A chromatic tuner is built in, and it can be accessed silently during performance.

The VOX Valvetronix ToneLab ST will be available in the US in late April.

MSRP: $275.00

We’re almost finished with the aging process on our project guitar. Let’s work on the fretboard, nut, and truss rod cover, and prepare the headstock for the last hurrah.

Hello and welcome back to Mod Garage. This month we’ll continue with our relic’ing project, taking a closer look at the front side of the neck and treating the fretboard and the headstock. We’ll work on the front side of the headstock in the next part, but first we must prepare it.
