The VX II is powered by Vox's VET (Virtual Element Technology) and gives you models of 11 amps and eight effects - plenty of choices for jamming around the house or at small gigs. On top of the stable of modeled sounds, you can store your 22 favorite tonal combinations in user presets, putting your most used sounds right at your fingertips. You get great sound that's easy to take on the go with the Vox VX II combo guitar amp.

Vox VX II Combo Electric Guitar Amplifier at a Glance:
  • VET modeling technology
  • 11 amp, 8 effects models
  • Built to reproduce your sound accurately
  • Control your tones with your computer
  • Functions as a USB audio interface and includes a free copy of JamVOX III and Vox Tone Room
VET modeling technology

Vox is a major player in the world of modeled sounds, and the VX II is loaded with their VET modeling technology. The VX II uses VET technology to model guitar amplifiers and effects down to a component level, giving you a playing experience like that playing through a great tube amp. Now you'll feel the tube sag, high-powered punch, chime, and grind of your favorite American and British amplifier designs, all through a compact practice amp.

11 amp, 8 effects models

The VET technology is applied to the VT II's 11 amp models, including Vox's own AC30TB, a Brit 800 tone, Deluxe CL, and more. But the tone journey doesn't stop there. Along with the amp models, you get to fine tune your tone with eight effects models. You'll have full access to chorus, a flanger, phaser, tremolo, tape-style delay, analog-style delay, and two types of reverb, all there to inspire and fuel your creativity. And you'll save your favorite sounds in the 22 user presets. If there's a sound in your head, there's a good chance you'll find it in the Vox VX II.

Built to reproduce your sound accurately

The innovation doesn't end with the VT II's VET modeling, as the amp's robust enclosure is engineered to reproduce the nuances of your playing and tone. The VX II's uniquely designed bass reflex structure and sealed 1-piece speaker enclosure stops sound from escaping out the back of the amp, keeping a low end in tact that you'll have a hard time believing is coming out of such a small amp.

Control your tones with your computer

The VX II gives you a USB out paired with Vox's JamVOX III modeling software and Tone Room software for deep editing of your sounds. Hook your VX II to your computer or iOS device and you'll be tweaking your tone far beyond what is available on the top panel of the amp.

I'm Amazed!

I've had several modeling amps in this price range from Fender, Roland, and Blackstar, but this little box beats them all! The amp models are the best I've heard, as are the effects, and the high tech cabinet design makes it sound much bigger than it looks. And on top of all that, it feels more like a real amp dynamically than any other digital modeling amp I've ever tried. I no longer feel like I'm settling for a digital recreation of the real thing, but that I'm playing a really good amp. No more buyer's remorse for not buying a tube amp.

Very Surprising!

I contacted my Sweetwater salesperson (Stewart) to find out some opinions for a small portable amp that I could throw in my Jeep to take to work. This was one of his recommendations. I ordered the amp and received it 2 days later, when I took it out of the box I was somewhat skeptical as it was so light and small. After playing with it for a couple of weeks My skepticism has vanished! You can get some great tones out of this thing and it's as portable as it gets. As usual the service from Sweetwater was way beyond my expectations. Thanks Stewart you really steered me right on this one.

well worth the money

I'm 40 years old. Ive been playing guitar for 35 years. I own a lot of nice equipment. I am picky. This is a practice amp that sounds very good. I am surprised by how loud it is. The presets change quietly and very quickly. The tuner only tunes to the "e" note. It is cool looking and weighs nothing. I find it to sound a little too treble and not enough bass but that is to be expected with the small speaker. With that said, I tend to lean toward a darker tone. If I were a kid I'd want this for Christmas. The vxII is well worth $149.99 for any serious guitar player and I could tell that right out of the box. Get the foot pedal for it because they should have just charged $200 and included it.

Vox VXII - 24 bit Audio Interface for IPad, with portable 30 watt modeling amp

I saw this Vox VXII - 24 bit Audio Interface for IPad, with portable 30 watt modeling amp and thought it might be a good basis for a mobile Positive Grid BIAS FX iPad Guitar rig, and its all that and more ! Essentially the new Vox VXII Amp above employs the new Vox Amplug I/O 24 bit USB Audio Class Compliant Interface built in Confirmed there is BI-Directional MIDI Control (over USB) with Vox VX2 and the ToneRoom IOS Editor on my iPhone 6 and iPad Air ( and possible path for using optional Vox VFS5 Footswitch as a MIDI Footswitch for IOS Guitar apps One "nag" is there appears to be no way to adjust the Depth of the Modulation FX - only the Rate/ Speed - and all built in FX are MONO only. but the Amp breaths and keeps up with my Kemper in regards to accurate tune amp feel Its interesting that this Small Amp has options for eight memory presets under foot switch control = also the VFS5 Foot switch supports "Tap Tempo" entry" Vox VXII has Lightning fast / no lag / no drop out patch changes! Connect an iPad Air via Apple Lightning USB Camera Adapter - and I can play backing tracks, IOS Synths in clear stereo 24 bit audio to the VXII's Headphone jack, and mono sound at 30 watts with its nice built in full range 8" speaker. Sounds great, not "honky midrange like my Fender GDEC III. Vox VXII is really a fun little amp. Extremely light! and Punchy when cranked, and tones match the great Vox YouTube demos 100% Its point and shoot easy to navigate, its really intuitive. Very fast patch change time, very low noise - and really nice tube amp tone. crank the Main Volume knob, and I see I can play small low volume showcase gigs with this amp. Roll down the "Power" knob and this amp faithfully maintains the nice Tube amp "squish" and feel - just lowers the decibel level, and no change in tone - perfect for bedroom practice This amp is just right for open mic night at the local folk club, as you set it on a bar stool and play backing lead guitar for the local acoustic guitar songwriter. I'm playing a 2013 Godin LGX-SA - stock Seymour Duncan HB Pickups, but added Bigsby B7 - tuned standard tuning. I do not detect any "flabby bass".In USB Mode the Vox VXII works as a 24 bit Audio Interface, and Stereo is rather crucial for using the JamVoxIII's GXF Instrument Isolation Function. ( been a Jamvox user for years) I located the official ASIO USB driver for Vox VXII - at the Korg Japan site(No USB driver required for Mac / iPad / iPhone - its CoreAudio compliant)The pedigree of Vox VXII is Korg DSP technology - Korg was the same engineering team that developed the Vox ToneLab series, and the new BlackStar ID amps as well. (side note: My Blackstar ID Core 40 has been less than fun, as it shuts down after 3 minutes anytime I feed audio into its "MP3/Aux" 3.5mm TRS Stereo input. and its only a 16 bit USB Audio device - IOS Amp sims (BIAS) need 24 bit to maintain dynamics of real tube amp. so I was seeking small grab and go amp / 24 bit USB Class Compliant Interface and thsi Vox VXII delivers I can play guitar using the Vox VXII's excellent built in DSP Amp models and FX ( they appear to be Mono Only) , and with the Ipad still connected via USB, I can us the VXII as a 24 bit stereo USB DAC, and feed backing tracks from my iPhone/iPad , play IOS Synths, and hear everything in either the VXII's full range 8" speaker at 30 watts mono, or I can connect stereo headphones, and hear everything in clean 24 bit stereo audio with equivalent performance of my other top 24 bit IOS audio interfaces.If I launch a MIDI Monitor I see that any time I move VXII's knobs, switches, even selecting patches on the VFS5 remote foot switch - I get unique MIDI SYSEX communication being sent over USB to the iPad - this means there is a path to use a third party IOS app (MIDI Bridge) to remap VXII's MIDI SYSEX commands into MIDI Patch change commands and / or MIDI CC# messages that I can map to control BIAS FX. and I can feed the stereo headphone output from VXII into the stereo Line input on Roland Cube Street EX, and have BIAS FX in 50 watts stereo, with IOS Backing tracks from MusicTubee ( a third party Youtube client that plays in the background with other IOS apps - perfect for learning songs Great sound, high dynamic range, comparable performance to my Focusrite iTrack Dock Using Meteor Multitrack (IOS DAW) on iPad and only a USB cable and Apple USB Camera Adapter, Now I'm recording output of Vox VXII Amp/FX on iPad at 24 bits. and this is in my commercial industrial shop with Welders next door and noisy AC power - Vox designed very good power decoupling - clean 24 bit audio here. This Vox VXII gets lots of things right!We need to start a campaign for Vox to make a 50 watt stereo version by 2016 Winter NAMM , with expanded MIDI options , and more opportunity for USB reamping using the excellent internal DSP amp modeling. but this is already a lot of utility in a nice small / light affordable package! Best $150 I've spent.
