So i got my vt50 last week and im having a bit of a problem with saving channels.

I can save them fine and everything but I noticed that if Im in manual mode, find a sound i like, save it to a channel, and without moving any eq settings, go back to manual mode, the tone sounds different to the tone saved in the channel.

For example, I had high gain tone in the brian may model amp, saved it to a channel and it sounded like it had less gain then it did if i put it back to manual mode, and the saved tone was quieter.

Can someone please help me with this?

Well I don't know how it's with others vts, maybe this is a global thing but my VT also does weird shit. Say I got a tone on channel 3. I go to the channel and the volume for some reason is really low. I change to another channel and then back to channel 3 and its OK. I don't know it does a lot of weird stuff.

oh wow... mine works perfectly fine.

Maybe ur fiddling with the master volume?
The attenuator on the back also effects ur sound.

But by the sounds of it, u's all have faulty VTs? Or maybe the VT100's are just made perfect.

The best place to talk about vox vts is at voxamps.com they have a great forum or on valvetronix.net
The channel volume thing is a very common problem on vts. Along with input jack problems

Generally the master volume only affects volume, but ive found that certain tones on the VT sound different when the master volume is drastically adjusted.

I tend to dial the tone i want from scratch every time i play instead of saving it, im just more comfortable this way and it doesnt take much effort once you know what you like. As previously suggested, i think youll have better luck on the Vox forums, no doubt numerous threads regarding this problem are up there already

Good luck

Dont worry, I worked out why it was doing it.
I wasnt holding the bank button until it flashed, then the channel. I was just pressing the channel button until it flashed, for some reason when I was doing this alot of reverb was being added too.

But its all sorted now, my bad haha.

I bought my VT50 yesterday and I'm still mucking around with the settings. Did yours come with a box and a manual because mine didn't.

^ Mine didn't have a box or a manual. There's a downloadable PDF manual at the Vox website.
