Audiofanzine FR's review

Vox VT15
(Originally written by laulalau/translated from Audiofanzine FR)
- Hybrid amp (12AX7 tube)

- 15 watts

- Guitar input, 1/8" headphone output

- Power break function (even on the 15-watt model!)

- Footswitch connector (footswitch not included)

- 22 amp modelings (Boutique CL, Deluxe tweed, Super 4x10, AC15TB, AC30HH, Express Train, AC50CP2, UK25th, US90s, UK modern, Boutique metal, Modded CL, AC15, AC30TB, Boutique OD, AC30BM, UK80s, Cali metal, UK90s, Metal Bull). For each amp model you can choose between manual setting, a factory preset (amp and effects already selected with default settings) and the sound of a famous song.

So you get a total of 66 different sounds...

- You can save eight presets to access them quickly.

- 12 effects: Delay, tape echo, chorus, comp, octaver, flanger, phaser, rotary, tremolo, pitch, reverb and noise reduction.

- 22 lb.

- 8" speaker

UTILIZATION

- I found the previous Vox ADVT series easy to use but it's a totally different story with this new range ^^... These new series provide six times more possibilities than the previous one. It's great but it makes settings a bit more difficult. Nevertheless everything gets easier after some time.

- Usually you get the sound you're looking for (although it also depends on the guitar you use...) but you have to spend some time with the amp.

The user's manual clarifies a lot of things. Generally speaking Vox makes clear user's manuals.

SOUNDS

- I think this amp is good for any music style if you use the adequate guitar. Except for extremely hard music, this amp makes wonders! So it's perfect for me (I'm very versatile: Dire Straits, Guns n Roses, Fall Out Boy, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Queen, etc.)

- I use it with a Fender Strat Mex Classic Player 60... and it sounds great. I will soon have a Les Paul Slash and I'm eager to test the amp with it!

I start with the pros regarding sound:

- The AC30BM model (Brian May) surprised me a lot... The AC30TB simulation of my previous amp (Vox AD30VT) was disappointing because I wanted a Brian May sound... And with this the VT15, I'm fully satisfied! Thank you Vox

The presets that simulate the sounds of famous songs are rather authentic.

- The octaver effect sounds nice

- The fact that now the 15-watt model also sports a power attenuation function is a very wise decision. (I bought the Vox AD30VT for the power attenuation because I play in my bedroom)

- The reverb is independent of all other effects.

- It's not important but the knobs have a vintage white finish, which I find nicer than the black plastic knobs of the previous series ^^.

Cons:

- I loved the modern UK model of my Vox AD30VT and the new one on the Vox VT15 is not exactly the same...

- It's not easy to use the compressor without the chorus effect...

- No wah effect... It's a bit disappointing because I didn't notice it when I bought the amp (but I would have bought it anyway)

- The low frequency response is not good (which can be expected considering the amp has only a 8" speaker)

- The Enter Sandman simulation has not enough gain and reminds me of the AC15... (perhaps because I play a Strat... but I don't think it's normal).

- Every time you select a new amp model there is an increase in level... unpleasant volume changes.

OVERALL OPINION

I've been using it for over one week. I like the new features (new effects, new amp models...) but I needed some time to manage the settings.

I previously owned a Vox AD30VT and I was very satisfied with it. As soon as I heard about the new series I sold my AD30VT to buy the VT15. I feel confident in Vox products and I have never been disappointed.

- Excellent value for money. I was surprised to see that the prices were the same as for the previous series. Vox seemed to decrease the price of the previous series instead of increasing the price of the new one. I like that!

- I would buy it again (even though I don't have that much experience with this particular product to answer this question)... Perhaps I would buy the 30-watt version which has a better low-end, but considering its price, this amp is nearly a gift. I wouldn't hesitate to buy it again. It's a very good deal!

MIRZA75's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Excellent value for money"

Vox VT15
I have not seen better cheap little amp with good sound.
I took 15 watts instead of 30 because it is more compact.

Very correct finish for prix.Il really has an air of VOX
All this at an unbeatable price.

UTILIZATION

It estpas an upscale but it is much better than a lot of small transistor amp starting with Fender.

SOUNDS

Effects troubleshoot well but for me, this is the amp simulation is good.
I wanted a clean sound, reverb and tremolo. I served.

OVERALL OPINION

3 years, light sufficient for a rehearsal in front of a battery

DDR_77's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" What will I do without him?"

Vox VT15
Type: Electric Guitar
Body Combo
Power: 15 Watts
Preamp: Transistor
Power Amp: Lamp and transistors
Number of Speakers: 1
Hp Size: 8 inches
Number of entries: 1
Channels: 2
Equalizer: 3 bands
Amp modeling: 11
Digital Effects: 11
Reverb: yes
Effects loop: yes
Headphone output: yes

UTILIZATION

With all the choices of possible models, the first steps were a bit laborious and, once you get used to it, there are a few sounds that go.

The footswitch is against required when we need different settings within the same song.

SOUNDS

Advantages of modeling, there is the sound you want! Very clean ultra saturated, without having to invest in a large package of effects pedals. I played with a Cort X1 (two double coils) and it does it well. I still had a little trouble getting clean sounds (it quickly saturated). I also tried with Applause AE126 (electro-acoustic): The amp is not intended to, but it fits.

OVERALL OPINION

I now have around two years. I use it everyday at home, mostly with headphones, but it has a setting for the output of the HP avoiding (too) get angry with your neighbors. Especially behind its 15 W announced it sends strong! Tried beef drummers with friends, I could not put it fully!

Memory banks are essential to avoid spending time to adjust, but 8 is just a little ;-)

Anyway, very happy with my little amp. The value (about 150 €) is quite correct and I will take it as amp "home." Remains whether it is also made for the stage.

stratoscott's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Amazing"

Vox VT15
No need to revisit the characteristics.

UTILIZATION

So many possibilities and instructions required, indeed it is quite clear. You still have to spend time on the settings to get what one seeks.
Sorry for the name of emulations, surely a matter of TM.

SOUNDS

THE sound palette suits me because I spend Pink-Floyd to Metallica, from pop to heavy metal.
Fatal flaw: the difference in volume between some simulations.
Amazing realism, but of course not to compare with a true all tube (less versatile)

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 6 months, and my home club.
I transplanted in the sound or "free" but the sounds change (so be careful with the way in equalizing the sound system)
Versatility is a plus in my case.
Too bad the HP is so small and it lacks an external speaker output.
I wait a bit to pay me the VT40 +
