Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? I have had this amp for about a month. I is loaded with more presets than I personally will ever need. It is a good looking edition to my ever growing array of gear. It seems to built very solid. All the buttons and knobs operate smoothly. Reliability How has it stood up over time? 30 days is not a true picture of reliability. But so far so good. Looking down the road I am not looking forward to having to replace the tube. I don't see any easy way to do that. That may be by design to ensure that a luthier/amp tech has a little job security. General Your general opinion of this product. In general I am pleased with my purchase. There is a little bit of a learning curve to programming user programs. I bought the VS5F footswitch to accompany the amp. No problems with communication. Reviews around the web have pointed out that there is no line out or capability to direct to a mixer/pa. That would be a nice feature to add in the next iteration of the Valvetronix VT++'s. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? I personally love the +(plus) feature. Adding that extra bit of wattage is really nice with the AC30 and US Metal amp models. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? There is a wide variety of amps to suit just about everyone's tastes. The only effect that I don't care for is the "Acoustic Pedal". For my taste it was not rich enough to emulate a really good acoustic tone. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Looks good in the amp corner. Action How was the action out of the box? Operates with in design parameters. All tube amp models sound better after a few minutes of warm up. This is my first amp with a tube as part of its circuitry. I assume that this is normal.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Vox VT80+ is constructed sturdy.. excellent for playing at small gigs. Reliability How has it stood up over time? So far extremely reliable.. have moved it from house to venue and performs well over and over. General Your general opinion of this product. Overall.. I really like this amp alot.. not a "true tube amp" but pretty darn close.. features good sound and portability. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Settings require a small learning curve but overall are explained well in the manual and are pretty easy for a intermediate guitarist. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Sounds pretty dang good for a solid state/tube hybrid. Some amp model settings are better than others.. but still overall good tone. AC15 and AC30 amp models are nailed down as they should be.. Still has a lot of warmth for a hybrid.. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Looks like a Vox.. but dressed in black.. Action How was the action out of the box? n/a Although my Vox VT80+ has seen some action..haha
