I have a VOX AD60VTX VALVETRONIX MODELING GUITAR AMP and I am trying to dial in the Jerry Tone. What do you think of this amp? I know its not as good as SMS or TR but it has a fender black face amp model and most of the effects that Jerry Used. The thing that most makes sense for me is getting the clipping and pushed sound on this amp at a low volume. There is a switch on the back that drops the wattage ofthe amp so you can crank the gain and push the tubes at like 1watt or 15 watts so you get the clipping without pissing off the wife. Does anyone have experience with using Amp Modleing and what do you think of it, is it just crap? I can kinda hear the differnece with the pedal models, the Chourus for example sounds much better on my Boss pedal than the amp. With the Blackface model what pedal would you add on this amp to get extra crunch and overdrive like Jerry would have used the MXR for: I have the onboard Tube Overdrive or an external Ibanez Tubescreamer, the plastic one. Check out hte second pic, it have all the options on the amp, if anything looks good for Jerry, let me know, thanks.......
I have the older, smaller version of the amp, and love it for practice, the built in attenuator makes it work all the money. I just use the blackface mod, and actually don't use the built in effect. they are alright for playing around, but overall not that good.
I use a mix of a tubescreamer, and blues overdrive for the jerry sound on it. I can hit it pretty right on.
The only complaints I have about mine, which can be rectified are, the reverb on it sucks. I plan on modding mine to put in an effect loop, then run a hard wire rv-7 in the loop (I A/B compared reverb pedals to a twin with reverb and this is by far the best I could find, no difference in sound that I could tell)
the other, which it looks like your version doesn't have, was it had a metal cheese grater grill on it. which i have since rectified it
