thanks for the input everybody, and especially to the_guy for the video, that tone was pure sex. I'm definatly getting an AC30 now.
But there was something else i was wondering. While browsing the vox websdite last night, i came across the cooltron series of pedals. I had never heard of them before, but they look pretty incredible (especially the double overdrive) anyone ever try them out?

i've wanted to try the cooltron pedals, but no local stores carry them and they are expensive

anyone here tried the tonelab? seems pretty good from the demonstration i saw yesterday. not that its worth me getting one when i have a valvetronix lol - sounded practically the same.
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.
#129
i might just get the cooltron over the top boost when i have my ac30...along with some custom hyper super great treble fuzz booster from some german company

any of you guys tried the new valvetronix xl series? i mean, would a ad30vt xl be better than a ad30vt + od/dist pedal, for death, trash metal wise?
or would a cube 60 be better?

I once got shocked by a spider amp.

I got powers like spiderman did, except I model everyone else's powers poorly.

I watched that video on the last page, very nice!


I want a treble booster, because, call me crazy, but I think my Epi VJ sounds like an AC30 with the treble turned down.

One amp that gets over looked a bit is the Vox DA 20. For blues and classic rock this is a sweet little amp. Box stock it lacks alot of gain and the controls are a bit limited, but for blues/classic rock I like the tone better then alot of low end tube amps. It has several pluses including the attenuator on the back and the battery operation is great for when the house looses power. When plugged into my pod xt live this thing turns into an animal. Bypassing the Vox preamp gives total control over everything and the gain problems vanish. I barely use my peavey anymore with this setup. So far it has done everything I've asked it to do. Oh... and it turns my walkman cd player and ipod into a killer stereo. Had it about 6 months and like it better now then when I first got it.

Hey, someone message me. What do you think is better for terms of sheer tone, and power? and DA20 or a AD30?. I heard the AD had some reliabitiy issues, but its a Valve and the DA is digital. Gimme ideas
#140
Hello again Vox Brotherhood peeps....

Guess who's getting an AC30

^^ I'd rather have the AD than the DA, higher power, attenuator, and the valve does make a bit of difference.

Either this Wednesday or next Wednesday. Don't be askin' for soundclips, 'cause it's a bit screwed .... The PCB is knackered, although on these 70s models the PCB is absolute garbage anyway. The cab's still in working order, as are the speakers, a few valves and trnasformers.... I'm gonna rebuild it all to my specs with tagboards:

-No reverb, no tremolo channel.
-TB channel and Normal Channel
-Master Volume
-Valve recto
-Choke power supply filter

noice. do u have teh schematics?

use the layout from weber. and use the vox cab. that would look tight and sound crisp.

^ Hehe way ahead of you I've adapted the Weber schematic to my needs... By adapted, I mean I cut out the Vibrato channel And for sure I'm using the Vox cab and chassis! I'll have to adapt the layout though, it's pretty different because I'm not doing tremolo, and I'm using 3 less valves as a result. Also I need to find where to add the master... Anybody know how/where to put a PPIMV?

don't want teh t00bz???

i don't know. probably after the phase inverter??? lol. i want to make a blackface... mmmm. i'm kind of getting into building an amp tho. i opened up my BJ and modded it a little. it wasn' tthat bad. and the transformers and big huge caps aren't that intimidating as i thought.

Haha, the Vibrato channel itself uses 3 12AX7, the normal channel uses a half, the TB channel uses 1 and a half, the Phase Inverter uses two halves. I figure I just can't be bothered with wiring in 3 extra 12AX7s when I'll never use the channel anyway! Plus my signal will be uber-pure I think it might be R25 and R26 on the Weber schematic I need to make into pots, I guess I could use a Stereo pot, I'll email Kerry.

Build a Deluxe reverb poweramp and a JCM800 preamp... My co-guitarist has that setup and it's pretty damn godly sounding...

no i want a super chimey clean sparkle amp.

i have a marshall for some gainy tone. but i think the 'gain' knob is driven by a solid state clipping circuit... if it is... i want to bypass it.

Hi Y'all.
After watching the demo on the vox website I got an AD30VT and I'm really pleased with it. I also have a Marshall MG30 DFX and the VOX just totally blows it out of the water. It's so versatile and sounds great.

However, I think if I were to spend serious money on an amp then I would probably get a Marshall stack.

Don't ask me why

im considering spending the coin on the AC15HTVH head an' cab. i know i dont need it, but, i WANT it.
#151
Just bought the Vox V847 and didnt have much time to experiment wiht it but I am pretty pleased with it so far. Its built great and sounds so really good, even when played through my mg . It was a much better pick than the Crybaby original.

Here's a DSL401 Schem

If anybody wondered why they didn't sound great, that's why. So much complex SS parts in there... SS Reverb, SS fx loop.... I'm willing to bet if you put a good amount of time and research in, removed the FX Loop and Reverb, purified the signal chain a bit (I mean, look at all the chips and Transistors for god's sake!!!) you could have a very nice amp...

I shall have a Vox Wah by christmas. >=( Right now im putting up with my friends crappy wah he let me borrow.

Any real reason to buy the original over the (a), i know the a has an adaptor and is "apprently" true bypass (but its not.), and the things more awkward to mod etc., but i could use the adaptor jack (I can like without it..) and better buffer + easier to get ahold of and i dont really plan on modding it. But tonally is there a giant difference. I'd go to the wah thread but, meh im here now

Also, bitterly dissapointed with the Vox ADVT XL, about 3 decent settings on it, and impossible to get a good clean tone. >=( Vox have dissapointed me.
#157
^ The A isn't true bypass, but it has a better buffer and a DC Jack which I find useful. It's hard to mod.... You could make it TB pretty easy though. You can do sweep cap changes too, and an inductor change, a transistor swap and a pot change but I can't seem to find any resistors to swap.... The original has a very slightly better tone but it's not much greater. The original is also much easier to mod. I just went with the V847a, easy to get ahold of and cheaper new on thomann than a used original is on eBay.

#158
Yeah i know its just a better buffer. £60 off thomann. But I'm getting some further crap off there for xmas too hopefully.
I mean, id probably still get the v847a regardless if had a 45% chance of giving me aids.
#159
What you planning on getting for xmas then?

Aye, go for the V847a.... It's just an easier option, I mean you can notice the slight treble suck but it's so easily compensated for with EQ...
