First introduced to the US market in the late 2004, the AD50VT was the most popular member of the AD Valvetronix "Chrome" series of amplifiers. It featured one 12" Celestion 70-80 speaker in a closed back, pressed board cabinet powered by a 50 watt Valvetronix amplifier circuit. The control panel was loaded with controls for eleven amp models, eleven pedal effects and a two channel digital programmer.

An optional VFS2 floor pedal allows for remote control of stored tonal programs.
The AD50VT is loud enough for full band use. The Celestion 70-80 12" speaker can offer traditional British clean or overdriven tones. A rear panel power amp level control allows you to reduce the output power of the AD50VT all the way from 50 watts to one watt.

The AD50VT follows a "chrome" theme, in fact, one magazine ad campaign from Vox used the theme, "Go Chrome or Go Home." Chrome plated Vox logos and a chrome plated steel grill highlighted this theme.
North Coast Music offered an optional aftermarket grill cloth upgrade for those that purchased their AD50VT at their store. The chrome plated steel grill was replaced with traditional brown or black Vox grill fabric. As the amp has been discontinued, this customization is no longer available, sorry.
A tubular steel chrome plated rigid stand is still available for this amp.
The AD50VT was discontinued by Vox in 2008 when in was replaced by the VT50.
North Coast also offers a number of cosmetic replacement parts for the AD50VT, see below.
