Introduced in 2007, the AD15VT XL was the smallest member of the AD Valvetronix XL Series of amplifiers. It featured one 8" speaker in a closed back, pressed board cabinet powered by a 15 watt 12AX7 tube/solid state hybrid Valvetronix amplifier circuit. The control panel was loaded with controls for eleven amp models, eleven pedal effects and a two channel digital programmer.

The Valvetronix XL series was derived from the Valvetronix AD series that had been introduced in 2004. The preamp of the XL series amps was reconfigured to feature more aggressive, high gain heavy metal guitar voicings.

The names of the eleven "Amp Models" on the AD30VT XL control panel were rather cryptic. They were: "Glass," "Funked," "Buzzsaw," "Crunched," "Thrashed," "Raged," "Modern," "Fluid," "Molten," "Black," and "Damaged." You can read more about these amp models at the Vox XL overview web page.

The "Effects" section of the amp was identical to the standard AD15VT version of the amp.

An optional VFS2 floor pedal allows for remote control of stored tonal programs.

The AD15VT XL was not loud enough for gigging, but it can be a very versatile practice amp. The power amp level control that allowed you to reduce the output wattage of the power amp that was common to the AD30VT XL, AD50VT XL, and AD100VT XL was not included in the AD15VT XL.

The AD15VT XL had a handsome "dark chrome" grill and chrome plated Vox logo accents.

The AD15VT XL was discontinued by Vox in 2009 when in was replaced by the VT15.

North Coast also offers a number of cosmetic replacement parts for the AD15VT XL, see below.
