Comments about Vox Valvetronix VT40+ Modeling Guitar Amp:
I loved this thing. It's a great ambassador for the Vox tones. I gave it to my nephew--I wanted him to experience the great Vox tones. He and my brother had never even considered Vox--I enlightened them considerably!
I have a Peavey Vypyr 30, which is roughly equivalent from that realm--I love that, too. The Vox tones are purer--even angelic in many ways, though. Peavey and Marshall prove great for brute-force and metal--they offer great gain tones--and, they push out a lot of sound. I respect them greatly, as well.
I'd say that Vox proves more musical. It can "do" metal, but it's far from the best at that. Everything has it's place--it's the tones and other features which the musician desires that rule.
The selection of tones and gain settings available with the VT-40 proves stunning. For one thing, I'm pretty certain that Chris Isaak invoked a Vox amp for his monster hit "Wicked Game" from his album "Heart Shaped World"--as well as for his earlier album "San Francisco Days"--if that's not the case, I could obtain similar tones, anyway. That's something quite special!
During the recent Queen's Jubilee which appeared one night earlier on TV here, Paul McCartney proved a great favorite. Behind him on stage I noted many shining words (from backing amps) spelled "VOX!" Vox and the "British Invasion" prove strongly intertwined and influential in music history.
I miss the VT-40--I hope to upgrade--to get a VT-80 or VT-100 to replace. For the budding guitarist, given that he or she must obtain an amp, I'd strongly urge parents or that musician to obtain this (or a roughly equivalent colleague-competitor amp) and an easily playable guitar--one of at least reasonable quality.
Given that the player prefers Vox, this should teach that player a great deal about the tones and features obtainable from that make of amps....
