Vox VX50GTVGuitar Amplifier with Nutube Technology -The Vox VX50 GTV combo amplifier has a hybrid design combining a 50 watt Class D solid-state power amp with a Nutube powered preamp featuring digital effects and amp modeling.

ABS Plastic Enclosure
The VX50 GTV featured a lightweight but durable injection molded black ABS plastic cabinet with a metallic blue fascia, wood baffle, black "shadow diamond" grill cloth and an 8" speaker. The enclosure included a bass reflex port to enhance low end response. This unique cabinet design, combining plastic and wood, allowed the VX50 GTV to weigh only about 9 pounds.

The preamp of the Vox VX50 VTX utilized a Korg Nutube 6P1. Korg Nutube technology uses a flouresecent display such as those included in modern keyboards to act as a vacuum tube. This provides the rich overtones of a traditional vacuum tube without the need for periodic replacement. The turquoise glow emanating from the Nutube 6P1 can be seen through a series of small holes located on the control panel.

Amp Modeling Using Virtual Element Technology
The VX50 GTV featured a digital amplifier modeling engine called VET, or Virtual Element Technology. VET didn't just aim to just get the "essence" of the tone of the worlds most iconic guitar amplifiers, it modeled how the electronic components and circuit designs interract in these classic amps.

Ten VET amp models were included: Deluxe, Boutique Classic, Boutique Overdrive, Vox AC30, Vox AC30TB, Brit 1959, Brit 800, Brit VM, SL-OD and Double Rectifier. An eleventh position on the rotary amp model selector offered a line input with flat response suited for acoustic guitar.

To further increase tonal flexibility, the "Program" button provided storage for three tonal variations of each VET amplifier model. The first selection was labeled "Preset" and was designed by Vox to complement the tone of the amp model. The other presets were labeled "User A" and "User B." These presets could be adjusted and stored to personal taste. A series of three LED lamps indicated which preset was selected.

Modulation Effects
The VX50 GTV includes four modulation effects: Chorus, Flanger, Org Phase and Tremolo. The "Modulation Effects" control knob is divided into four sectors. One modulation effect was assigned to each sector of the control. Rotating the "Modulation Effects" control clockwise from "Off" advanced through the four modulation effects.

While the rotary control adjusted the depth of the modulation effects, the "Tap" button adjusted modulation speed.

The VX50 GTV also includes four delay effects: Analog Delay, Tape Delay, Spring Reverb and Hall Reverb. The "Delay/Reverb" control knob is also divided into four sectors. One delay effect was assigned to each sector of the control. Rotating the "Delay/Reverb" control clockwise from "Off" advanced through the four delay/reverb effects.

Guitar Tuner
Depressing the "Tap" button for several moments engaged the guitar tuner. It used the three LED lights from the Program section to indicate if a guitar string was on pitch.

Headphone/Line Out
The VX50 GTV included a 1/8" line out/headphone jack that included a cabinet simulator.

JAM Vox Software
The VX50 GTV includes a complementary download of the Vox JAM software application for PC or Mac. Using this software required that the amp be connected to a computer or mobile device via a USB port found on the rear control panel.

Optional Foot Switches
Vox offers two optional foot switches for the VX50GTV. The two button VFS2A foot switch allows the remote selection of two presets. The five button Vox VFS5 foot switch expanded program selection to two banks of four programs, or a total of eight.
