The VX50 GTV was born from a desire to open up new possibilities for guitar amps. A design that’s almost unreasonably lightweight, an internal structure carefully calculated for the optimal sound, realistic and stage-ready sounds driven by modeling technology, and the next-generation Nutube vacuum tube featured on the VX50 GTV are some of the many leading-edge specifications that make this a rediscovery of the guitar amp.
Overturning existing ideas of guitar amps, the VX50 GTV will allow you to enjoy playing guitar in any musical scene. Thanks to their many years of developing modeling amps, VOX delivers the ultimate in sound. Proprietary VET (Virtual Element Technology) enables unprecedented realism, reproducing not only the audible result but rethinking the original circuit itself, painstakingly modeling even individual components that affect the sound. In addition to the classic AC30, this one unit covers a diverse multitude of sounds that include famous tube amps, modern high-gain amps, and rare boutique amps.
Newly added is a LINE type which supports not only electric guitar but also acoustic guitar, further expanding this unit’s usefulness. Also included is a full selection of the effect types that are indispensable in shaping your sound. You can simultaneously use both types, modulation and delay/reverb, and choose from four types each, giving you a total of eight variations. This means that you have the ability to add the final touches to shape your overall guitar sound. There’s also a tap button, so you can set parameters such as delay time in an intuitive manner.
The VX50 GTV features a Nutube, the new-generation vacuum tube. Using electro-luminescent technology with the same structure as a conventional vacuum tube, the Nutube has been featured on a variety of VOX and other products. The distortion and sense of compression that you expect from a vacuum tube, and even the response and playing feel, perfectly capture the feeling of playing a vacuum tube.
In addition to the light-weight design that was unobtainable by a conventional vacuum tube amp, the Nutube brings additional unique advantages such as being maintenance-free and delivering amazing cost-effectiveness. The VX50 GTV features USB audio interface functionality that lets you connect it to your computer via USB, and record the Nutube sound directly. In addition to letting you enjoy performing, this unit brings high potential as an amp that integrates well with your desktop music setup.
