OVERVIEW

Ride the train of hard-hitting Vox tube sound.

Traditional VOX all-tube sound
VOX's traditional tube sound is alive and well on the Night Train G2 15W combo. The class AB design delivers awesome power, with a preamp containing three 12AX7 tubes and a power amp containing two EL84 tubes.

Girth/Bright two-channel design provides a wide range of tonal character
Each model offers up two channels with a differing tonal character: Girth and Bright. The Girth channel has a powerful modern high-gain sound that's unparalleled even among VOX amps. It's also ideal for the guitarist who seeks an even heavier sound. The Bright channel provides VOX's distinctive clean/crunch sounds and also features a Thick mode that bypasses the tone control circuit and boosts the gain to obtain a thicker tone, achieving a rich variety of tonal character. An optional VFS2A footswitch can be used to switch between the two channels with your foot, for convenience during your live performances.

Excellent expandability
For the guitarist who seeks more originality, the Night Train G2 series provides send/return jacks that are a convenient way to connect an external effect unit to your amp. You can easily connect your favorite effect units without impairing the potential of the Night Train G2, dramatically expanding your sound-shaping possibilities. A high-quality reverb has been added to all models, letting you obtain a broad variety of sounds without needing to involve any other equipment.

Comments about Vox Night Train G2 15W Tube Guitar Head:

If your a baby boomer and looking for sweet tube blues tones look elsewhere. Too many buttons and switches seems they tried to make this amp do it all and does a lot but nothing really well.
The cabinet I used is a vintage Mesa Boogie Thiel with a Celeston Black Shadow.

Comments about Vox Night Train G2 15W Tube Guitar Head:

Great little 15W Head. Don't let the wattage scare you, this thing is loud. The reverb is good, I usually use another pedal for it to get more but its still great stock. The break up is great on the bright channel when turned up and the dirt channel is heavy, and grungy. It's great for 60s and 70s style rock and roll as well as modern stuff. I would advise you to buy the footswitch too. The Night Train g2 15w is a portable little beast with that classic vox chime in an affordable package with some added modern features.

Comments about Vox Night Train G2 15W Tube Guitar Head:

Agree with the other reviews here regarding the tones you can find in this little beast. From clean to very crunchy. I play in a band that covers material from Dire Straits to AC/DC and this amp does a great job of creating the tones I need in a package that is great for small clubs. I also have an Egnater Rebel 30 that I got for its versatility, but it is a bit much for the smaller places. I'll use this as a backup for the Egnater in large venues and my go-to for small venues.

I'd have one more option for a bag for this: Plano 3700 Softsider tackle bag. I got mine at Sportman's Warehouse. It even has a pocket for my VFS2a footswitch and cable.

Comments about Vox Night Train G2 15W Tube Guitar Head:

I've played through a lot of different amps, and this is the best value by far. It has a wide range of tones that sound great, even at low volume. A lot of amps can't sound good at low volume. I play it through a 2x12 cab with an Eminence Governor and Red Fang and it gets that satisfying swirl to the sound that high end boutique amps get. It won't do spot on AC15 tones, but it gets close. From there with more gain you get a beautiful grinding snarling overdrive and distortion. It's more versatile than an AC. This is perfect for classic and alternative rock styles. No bag, but I bought a Yamaha THR bag, and it fits perfectly.

    Comments about Vox Night Train G2 15W Tube Guitar Head:

    This is a great amp for the sale price. It has the cool VOX sound and they improved on earlier model by adding reverb. The only bummer is that the head no longer comes with the nice gig bag that was stock with the old model. So, I found a decent alternative called the Compact Competition Range Bag. It is made out of rugged material, is top loading, with head fitting perfectly inside the main compartment. It has outside pockets for your various chords and other gear. Great bag for good price. So, buy this amp, while it is at this price, and pick up the bag to protect your investment.
