Hybrid amp with a lamp preamp (12AX7) you change your office, this is a Chinese lamp SEA *. *, In short, that power is 100 watts max and a small knob at the back allows you to lower its power (neighbors say thank you to me).
In addition it has 22 amp modeling and a dozen effects (delay, reverb, flanger, chorus etc ...)
No manual, you're dead, already with, it is not so easy without ...
Otherwise, you can set the amp manual (which I did) and cut effects.
Too bad the footswitch is sold apart ...
Divine sound, once the Chinese lamp throw in the trash, replace it with a mesa boogie and, osmosis you invaded.
For my part, it is coupled with a ToneLab LE, while the effects of the amplifier are cut and turns it in manual mode.
The pros: the sound
The -: weight (28 kg without wheels)
the original lamp of poor quality
the footswitch sold a share (75 €)

riffmaker's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
Vox VT100, manufacturing vietnam. Preamp tube (12AX7) .1 guitar input, 1 headphone jack. Entry for VFS5 footswitch (not supplied). Output for external speaker 8ohm. Output and input for effects loop. Vox 2 Hp 12 '. 22 amp simulations "legendary." 11 digital effects. 28.5 kg. 1 reverb. 2 year warranty in store
Configuration that may not seem easy for beginners because of the large number of switches and buttons .... masi used to it quickly enough. The amp is further provided with a fairly comprehensive manual in French. The 22 amp simulations allow sounds quite varied ranging from blues to metal very clean slobbering, passing by the famous marshall and vox ... The amp can be used in "manual" mode which allows quick setup.
I play rock, hard rock, like Led Zeppelin, Stones, ACDC, Gun's n Roses, but I'm also a bit of Clapton and Black Sabbath and the amp is perfect for all styles. Simulations "boutique clean" and "modern clean" offer enough critsallins clean and shiny. I play a Epiphone Les Paul with the microphone and mache, the clean is just beautiful. The reverb is pretty clear which allows the dose as you like. For fat sounds, the amp responds very well to the Les Paul. Sounds "Rolling Stones" sound perfectly. The simulations also allow Marshall to play ac / dc carefree, with headroom quite important. I tried with simulations metallica "metal bull" and "Uk" 90s "and we really believe it. The lamp provided the preamp sound fat enough typical tube amp. Pushing the master thoroughly, we get really good sound. I often grows as the master after the amp has a power setting behind the control panel which allows not fun eardrums!! All sounds distos are impeccable. I did not even tried with other Gratt ..... The speakers are quite specific and have no problem when the volume is at the bottom .... you can plug in a distortion pedal with no problems ....
I use it for 1 week and I'm thrilled! I tried the Fender 212FM and Peavey Classic 30 (all-tube), but I opted for the vox with 22 amp simulations and many built-in effects. The lamp of the preamp is really a plus compared to transistor circuits ampis .... The sound is really differnet. The value for money is pretty good, but the amp is expensive for a 100W .... over the footswitch is not included and is sold at 69 € in stores! With experience, I would do without hesitation that choice because the power is really there, the speakers are accurate, and the amp seems really solid and sturdy when you see it.

Anonymous 's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" PERFECT"
preamplification lamp, 100 watt amp, with 2 HP, 1 jack, effects loop, speaker output (mutes the amp when you plug in an HP) and headphone jack footswitch?
Full-amp simulator, I invite you to visit any site to list vox;
Practice a footswitch "sold separately 70 euro, with 5 knobs, 1 switch banks and 4 to switch between different sounds that we can even set am. Se also switch hands on the amp but the footswitch to play me seems indispansable. So 2 banks of 4 selections.
Very simple configuration, we get easily good sound, the amp simulator is excelente. The manual .... I have not looked.
Sounds very different from Criare out fat from light to pass through Metal blues, rock, crunch ......
I prefer the sounds vox ac 30 and simulators marshall, the sound of the amp without going through the amp simulator is also Excellent.
I played on one of klk'un else for a concert, I bought myself a wake so I was there almost bleuffer by sound. I prefer the sound c foremost, it can serve as live in the apartment thanks to a button behind to set the maximum power, 1.5 W to 100 W. I also like its looks, its warm sound and presence thanks to 2 HP.
I already have a DA20, I also have a marshall 50 watt All Tube as you say that the small risk vox gathering dust, I still love to take the marshall, although the simulation is excelente, c but not the same. In any case I would take the concerts VOX. no breath, precision, and clear sound is clearer.
However not released to plug in sound system, thus forcing her to prick with a microphone for the concerts, which in itself is no worse. Too bad the footswitch is optional but at what price the amp c not too annoying. It is heavy, 28 kg and a bit bulky ..
I bought new there klk weeks for the price was 389 + 65 for the switch, + have to invest in a microphone.
