VOX Unveils VT Series Amps

Vox expands its Valvetronix line

Melville, NY (September 12, 2008) -- VOX has expanded its line of Valvetronix tube-powered modeling amplifiers with the introduction of the new VT Series 15-Watt VT15, 30-Watt VT30, 50-Watt VT50 and 100-Watt VT100 combos.

As with all Valvetronix models, these amps feature VOX''s patented Valve Reactor technology. This design uses a 12AX7 tube circuit that creates an analog power-amp circuit.

 

New features include:
- 22 ultra-authentic amp models
- 12 high-quality effects
- 66 preset programs
- 8 footswitchable user programs
- Built-in speaker-emulated headphone/line-out jack
- Optional VFS5 footswitch, providing hands-free program switching

The new design combines the metal grills of the previous Valvetronix AD Series with new cream chicken head/pointer knobs that pay homage to VOX''s heritage. Each model features VOX custom-designed speakers. External speaker output is provided on VT50 and VT100, and an effects loop on VT100.

The VOX VT15 and VT30 will be available in October 2008 with MSRPs of $280 and $375, and the VT Footswitch will have an MSRP of $84. The VT50 and VT100 will be available in December, pricing TBA.
