A gig ready amp, with the core functions for most players

Halley, 15.06.2018
Vox nailed by stripping back to a simple design!
The amp has 2 channels(gain, EQ, volume, then master volume). Under the hood, it has two standard 12ax7 valves, one for preamp, and one on power amp(yes, there). The distortion sounds natural, as it is from a valve(on all voices/amp models). The second valve, will distort the sound of the power amp, giving this little guy a more authentic valve power amp sound.

It has enough power for a small bar/pub gig . For an event or larger setup, you should mic anyway, so a 4x12 Marshall or 1x12 combo will have the "same" volume to the crowd(though the PA).
This amp is light... 16kg(less than my holiday bag). In comparison, a Marshall JCM900 with 4x12 cab would weigh 18+36kg.

Preference wise, the Clean 1(Fender) and Crunch 2(AC30@low gain) give a really nice and full bodied sound(as my clean channel A). My dirty channel(B) is set to OD 2(JCM900@med-high gain), and that sounds really good. the HiGain amps(Soldano and Peave 5150) can give you a really dirty metal/lead sound, which is definitely worth checking out(you wouldn't expect that from a VOX 1x12 combo, but it is surprisingly really good).

For a compact setup(amp and that's it), you can use the VFS5 footswitch, so you can access both channels, chorus, delay and reverb easily. However if you have limited space and/or use many effects(I use a Line 6 M13), and will use the footswitch just for the channels, then go with the VFS2.


Extras:
It has an effect loop(extra points against the Valvetronix series).
Line In, so you can plug your music player to practice
Phones out, great for practicing at home(it mutes the amp)
3 simple effects (perfectly usable), chorus, delay and reverb, which can be easily used with the VFS5 footswitch.

Con
Yes there is one... If you want an external cab and keep the same power/wattage, you need an external cab with a 3 Ohms impedance, which is hard to find. It would be great if Vox had a matching extension Cab, so you can run a 2x12 rig, if wanted.

Great product but faulty footswitch operation

AntN, 20.06.2018
This is a great amp, and perfect for the intermediate player looking to dip their toes in the "valve sound". Responsive and great tones from my MIM Strat. Takes pedals really really well and was perfect in everything, except...
Attaching the Vox footswitch caused the amp to go into standby mode after about 10 seconds of playing. I tried several other footswitches and another Vox one, but all did the same.
So unfortunately that made the amp unusable for me as I use it in a live (church) environment.
Reading online forums and I've found several other people experiencing the same issues.
You may get a good one, which will be great!
