The Vox V125 Bass Head amplifier uses:
2 x ECC83 (also called 12AX7) preamp valves.
1 x ECC81 (12AT7).
1 x ECC82 (12AU7)
4 x EL34 matched power valves/power tubes.
Over time your valves will lose their tone and their power. A brand new set of valves will get your amp sounding better than ever.
We always recommend JJ valves for this amplifier. This is because they guarantee you get awesome tone and long life and they don’t cost a fortune. Remember, JJ is one of only five manufacturers of valves in the world. So don’t pay higher prices for valves from the same factory that have simply been rebranded by other companies.
So restore the tone, the power and the sparkle to your guitar amplifier. Treat yourself to a brand new set of valves today.

The Vox V125 bass amp was introduced in 1981 and production stopped in 1983.
The massive competition between Marshall and Vox was at its peak and Vox were determined to take a bigger share of the new market that Marshall was creating. Ironically Jim Marshall was originally a dealer for Vox amps from his shop in Hanwell.
This amp produced 125 watts and featured a five-band EQ with rotary controls was featured in the V125. The EQ frequencies of the V125 Bass were 50hz, 100 Hz, 250 Hz, 500 Hz and 1600 Hz.
Features included Gain, Volume and Master Volume controls, just like the Marshall amps from this same period – no coincidence.
