I have had my Vox AD30-VT for only a month now and the input socket has broken 3 TIMES!!! When you put the lead in it all falls into the amp! I'm not being heavy handed or anything as I only really use it at home... Has anyone else had this problem or a similar one with a similar amp? PLEASE HELP I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT TO DO EVERYTIME I TAKE IT BACK TO WHERE I BOUGHT IT THE REPAIR WORK IT SH1T!!!

Get them to replace the amp.

This problem has happened with q a lot of Valvetronix owners.

Wow, I've never had that problem. Tighten the screw on the ouside of the input, and stop taking it to the same place if it breaks again. They're probably causing the problem. But mine never has done that before. Can you explain in detail what actually happens, with pics possibly?

If they aren't going to replace it, maybe try a locking washer this time. I've heard of other people having that problem too with that amp. They are only pennies at a hardware store, and they can help a lot with nuts loosening on their own.

what happens is you only think you are puting it strait in when actually you are putting it in at an angle, this causes it to break off from the inside, just be carefull to get it strait in, without any angle, and youll be fine.

edit: do you actually have the 50w version or do you have the 30? theres no difference but you neednt lie in your sig about your gear......

^ha called him out on that one, totall pwnage, but actually i have the 50w version and (naturally) ive taken it apart and that input jack is really half assed, its all plasic and mounted to a pcb, but its all hard plastic on metal, vox was just asking for trouble.

yeah, they must know about this problem. i see one of these a month.

like said. make them fix it again. this time they should add a locking/gripping washer.
