Vox VT100X Modeling Combo Guitar Amplifier

Gearank Recommendation

The VT100X appeared on our recommended list for Modeling Amps from June 2019 until August 2020 when it was removed due to being out-ranked by other amps.

It was also on our list for Guitar Amps Under $500 from July 2019 until July 2020.

Overview

The VT100X is part of Vox' line of hybrid amps that combine a solid-state poweramp section with a multi-stage tube driven preamp section.

To be more precise, it sports a 12AX7 preamp tube that adds realism to its built-in amp modeling capabilities.

This means that you get the warmth of tube, and the versatility of solid-state digital amp modeling, which lets you choose from 20 amp models and 13 effects, with up to 60 preset slots to work with.

When paired with the included Tone Room software editor, you get even more control over the amp models, and you also get more amp models to work with.

At 100W and equipped with a 12" speaker, this combo amplifier is loud enough for most applications, including big venues.

Interestingly, the 12AX7 preamp lasts longer than the average tube amp because it is not driven hard.

For the money, the Vox VT100X gives you more than amp modeling, it has real tube preamp circuitry, 100W of power and a 12" speaker. It is a great buy for those looking for a loud and versatile combo amp.
