What Are the VOX Valvetronix VT120 Amp Models?

Valvetronix VT120 is a modelling amplifier from Vox that incorporates Korg REMS software to simulate the sounds of a variety of vintage amplifiers. Like its contemporaries, the VT120 uses digital software effects to expand its sonic palette past what would be capable with its built-in hardware alone. The VT120 features 16 virtual amp "models," each based on a historic amplifier released by Fender, Vox, Marshall, Mesa Boogie, Soldano or Dumble. The Vox amp model names refer to specific Vox amplifiers, but due to trademark restrictions amp models based on other brands use generic labels.


Each of the following VT120 amp models emulates a historic Vox amplifier of the same name: "AC15," "AC15TB," "AC30," and "AC30TB."


"Black 2 x 12" emulates a 1965 Fender Twin Reverb. "Tweed 1 x 12" emulates a Fender Princeton or a 1958 Fender Deluxe. "Tweed 4 x 10" emulates a 1959 Fender Bassman.


"UK Blues" emulates a 1960s Marshall JTM45. "UK '70s" emulates the high treble channel of a 1969 Marshall 100W Plexi head amplifier. "UK '80s" emulates a 1983 100W Marshall JCM800 head. "UK '90s" emulates the lead channel of a 1990s 100wWMarshall JCM900 head. "UK Modern" emulates the high gain channel of a Marshall JCM2000 DSL100 head.

Mesa Boogie

"Recto" emulates the modern high gain channel of a Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier.


"US High Gain" emulates the high gain channel of a 1991 100W Soldano SLO100 head.


"Boutique OD" emulates the overdrive channel of a 100W Dumble Overdrive Special head. "Boutique Clean" emulates the clean channel of a 100W Dumble head.
