Vox have made some of the most popular digital practice amps for some time but now they are about to get even better. With the aim of making an amplifier that is stronger, lighter and higher quality all without taking out of the price range of a bedroom musician they have made this range of VX amplifiers. The VX-2 is a fair bit larger than the VX-1 with an 8" speaker, 30w of power but still with the same high quality 11 amp models. This is a great little amplifier for practice at home or with friends in a small band.
VET Technology For Better Simulation
For years Vox have made great modeling amplifiers but there have always been ways they could improve. While the sound was pretty much there they missed out on how the amp responded to certain moves of the controls and your guitar. Now with Virtual Element Technology, Vox can now emulate not only the sound but the circuitry and the response inside the amplifier so you can get a feel for how the real thing responds.
They have even gone as far as to create individual tone stack circuits within the DSP of this amplifier that give you the real EQ curve of the amp you are emulating. This means that you get a more realistic sound from the start and you get feel that when you increase one value of the EQ you are lowering the value of another.
New Power Amplifier
A lot of amplifiers have variable power now. Thanks to more people wanting to play at home a lot of amplifiers can have their power amp turned down so you get the same great sound but at a much lower volume. This has made its way over to the VX2 as well with a new FET-based power amp that reproduces the characteristics of a real tube amplifier without all the maintenance.
11 Amplifier Models
Not everyone wants to play the same styles. While others will love the clean channels of classic Vox others may want a crushing high gain sound from a classic British stack. With 11 models built in this amplifier can cover pretty much any style you could possibly want from blues to jazz, rock, metal and beyond great tones are always available with this amp.
Revolutionary ABS Casing
Guitar amplifiers have been traditionally made of wood which is structurally strong but also very heavy. While the speaker baffle is still made of wood to make sure that it doesn't move too much the actual casing has been made out of incredibly strong ABS. This material is much stronger at thinner sizes meaning this amp can weigh in at just 8Ibs or 3.75kg.
Not many amplifiers can claim to have the same incredible range of features as the VX-2. One of the coolest features with this amp is that you can plug it in to any PC or MAC and use it as an audio interface. This means you can easily track your favourite guitar tones without the need for a massive amplifier and loads of microphones.
Guitar amp simulation has been used for years in both home and professional recordings. The ability to record the perfect take at the moment and get your amp sound at any time before or after. So you can experience this amazing recording experience and make the most of the built in USB audio interface VOX have included their JamVOX amp sim software.

"It's easy to be won over by the Vox VX II. We like the combination of portability with a compact yet robust design whilst the modeled amps and effects not only sound top-notch but are also presented in a refreshingly uncomplicated format. The extra benefits of the JamVOX III and Guitar Xtraktion software notwithstanding, purely as a practice amp the VX II punches well above it's weight courtesy of a wealth of tones that are anything but pint-sized."
