The XL amplifiers feature amp models from the acclaimed "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 ReactorTM 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 existing chrome series Valvetronix amps), which were designed to handle the high gain levels of these amplifiers.

About VOX Valve ReactorTM TechnologyThe XL Series amplifiers feature VOX's patented Valve ReactorTM circuitry -- a proprietary design using a 12AX7 dual triode vacuum tube, a virtual output transformer and a dummy speaker circuit that simulates the reactive load of a real speaker. The Valve Reactor reconfigures itself so its characteristics match the amps it's modeling; all the nuances of the original amp -- sound, feel, and presence -- are accurately reproduced.
