VOX Amplification has expanded its line of Valvetronix™ tube-powered modeling amplifiers with the Extreme Lead "XL" Series. These new high-gain amplifiers are specifically designed and voiced for hard rock/heavy metal music and deliver the most aggressive VOX tones to date. Four combos comprise the line, including the AD15VT-XL (15-Watt, 1x10"), AD30VT-XL (30-Watt, 1x12"), AD50VT2-XL (50-Watt, 2x12") and AD100VT-XL (100-Watt 1x12").
The XL amplifiers feature amp models from the acclaimed VT or "Chrome Valvetronix series that have been modified and "hot-rodded" for the high-gain player. Eleven different models are provided, including classic vintage amps of the past, modern high-end amps and tube heads known for their high-gain, now taken to even higher levels. The models, which are named by musical style, include two essential clean tones and nine high-gain lead sounds spanning the history of metal ranging from "Buzzsaw," a driving sound inspired by '70s-era classic metal, to "Damaged," a devastating ultra high-gain channel capable of handling detuned and seven string nu metal. And as with all Valvetronix models, the XL Series incorporates VOX's patented 12AX7 Valve Reactor™ circuitry, for true tube-powered amp sound and feel.
The striking XL Series features grey vinyl covering with matte black metal grill for an industrial-looking, metal-inspired twist on traditional VOX design. Also new are upgraded speakers in the 15- and 30-Watt models, (10" and 12" respectively, versus 8" and 10" in the AD series amps), which were designed to handle the high gain levels of these amplifiers.
The new XL Series amplifiers will be available Summer 2007 with U.S. MSRPs to be announced shortly.
