Redefining the modelling amplifier as you know it.
Advanced technology that carefully recreates classic amplifier circuits, providing a more authentic tone.
Modelling amplification was first introduced nearly two decades ago. Since then, thanks to the advancement in technology, the quality and functionality of these amplifiers has increased dramatically. Because of these improvements, modelling amplifiers have become a more popular choice for a variety of modern guitarists. Now with the debut of VX I and VX II, VOX introduces a bold new modelling technique that yields vastly improved sound quality and a more authentic playing experience. A longtime innovator of modelling technology, VOX Amplification has taken modelling amps to the next level with the VX I and VX II.
When we began work on the VX I and VX II, we had come to the conclusion that conventional modelling methods had been exhausted. In order to achieve advanced sound, a newer, more refined method was developed. This innovative new method, known as VET (Virtual Element Technology), meticulously models the actual circuits and electrical components of an amplifier. This more sophisticated approach to modelling results in a more accurate and more articulate representation of the desired amplifier. Taking this process one step further, we also reengineered the conventional guitar cabinet, opting for a one-piece, sealed enclosure that enhances the sound quality and performance of the VX amplifier range.
The circuits at work in the VX I and VX II offer guitarists the best of both digital and analog amplifier design. The Virtual Element Technology at the heart of these amplifiers was used to revive a myriad of classic amplifiers. The VX Series offers functionality that is beyond current digital amplifiers and represents an evolutionary step for modelling technology.
This technology is referred to as “modelling” because it is based on the existence of an original amplifier. In the case of rare vintage amps, it is not unusual for individual units of the same model to sound different due to the passage of time and the varying environments in which they have been used. For these reasons, the selection of the original amp has a major influence on the accuracy and sound quality of a modelling amp. Since the analysis is based on the output sound, the condition of the amp is also very influential, and the unavoidable reliance on the human ear has an even greater effect. These factors make it difficult to say that the modelling accuracy extends to the tonal changes arising from the interaction between the tone controls, the volume, and the various components.
In order to resolve these issues, we completely rethought previous methods of modelling for the VX I and VX II. This led to the development of VET (Virtual Element Technology), which models the actual circuit of the original amp. An enormous amount of information about the vacuum tubes and each individual component was carefully analyzed in order to accurately reproduce the characteristics of the desired amplifier, as they were originally intended.
A diverse array of amps and effects allows for comprehensive sound-shaping
The eleven built-in amp models include VOX’s legendary AC30 as well as also several high-gain, crunch, and clean sounds. A VX amplifier is the one unit you need to achieve a variety of coveted amplifier sounds ranging from classic vintage effects to costly boutique amps. A full complement of effects is also provided, including four types of modulation and four types of delay/reverb. The effects featured in the VX amplifier range have been also been reengineered to deliver more accurate and articulate tones.
The eleven preset programs take full advantage of these amps and effects to simulate the signature sounds of famous guitarists and classic songs.
A redesigned power amp stage, complete with an FET equipped analog circuit
Responsiveness, dynamic overdrive, and incredible sound quality — for the guitarist, these are the unique attractions of a tube amp, and are the reason that tube amps have continued to be sought by guitarists for decades. These characteristics are significantly influenced by the power amp stage of the amplifier. A new, FET-based analog power amp was designed specifically for the VX I and VX II to accurately reproduce the characteristics of a tube amp. This power amp design employs technology inherited from the Valvetronix series and succeeds in reproducing the distinctive sag of a classic tube amp.
Unique bass-reflex design and sealed cabinet produce a rich low-end
In addition to the circuit design, we considered all aspects that impact the sound, paying careful consideration to the cabinet and speaker design.
In order to obtain a more authentic sound and produce sound more efficiently, we employed a uniquely designed-bass reflex structure in conjunction with a sealed, one-piece speaker enclosure. While providing an external appearance appropriate for a guitar amp, the cabinet's shape, the curvature of the front and back surfaces, and the internal reinforcement ribs have all been carefully designed to optimize the resonance. A conventional wooden baffle was chosen to retain the projection and tone of a classic guitar amp, while the cabinet is constructed from lightweight and durable ABS. The combination of these two materials yields a superior acoustical property that sounds superb yet retains easy portability. All of these unique elements work together to bring forth a level of sound quality that was previously unachievable with an amp of this class.

Just to let you know i got my parcel okay & thanks for the speedy reply in the 1st instance ... i will defo buy from your company in the future.
Many thanks for all you have done to help with this.
I will keep your shop as a bookmark.
ref schaller pick up Many thank for very quick service i am well pleased regards
