OVERVIEW

The rock-solid, no-compromise, all-tube VOX head and cabinet for the musician on the go.

This half stack includes VOX's Night Train NT15 Head and V112NT speaker cabinet.

The Night Train NT15H amp head

Whether you're adding your hot sound to a late-night demo, sitting in at your favorite club, or jamming with friends, the VOX Night Train NT15H is your new best friend. Whenever and wherever, the VOX Night Train will deliver that smooth and satisfying all-tube sound. You don't want to choose between killer sound and total convenience—with the VOX Night Train amp head you never will.

If Looks Could Kill

Solid enough to inspire confidence, this VOX amp head weighs just under 17 pounds, and the "armored lunchbox" dimensions provide extreme portability. Finished with a cool chrome mirror-finish, the signature VOX diamond design reveals that inspiring vacuum-tube glow. And of course, the Night Train NT15H guitar amp includes its own padded carry case to protect your investment.

True Tube Power

The sound is pure VOX. Inside, a pair of EL84 tubes deliver on the tube power promise. Two 12AX7 tubes drive the preamp stage with both power and clarity. This is the same winning tube complement as the classic VOX AC15. From chime-like clean tones to the warmest overdrive, there is no mistaking that harmonic richness of pure tube performance.

Dual Nature

The VOX Night Train's single switch lets you select between Pentode or Triode tube operation. In the Pentode mode, VOX Night Train delivers a full 15 watts of power. In the Triode mode, the power is cut to 7.5 watts. The Triode mode also relaxes the tube power stage, letting that silky-smooth, mellow tube character shine through.

Preamp Pizzazz

VOX Night Train greets you with a clear, simple panel design, offering the familiar Gain and Volume controls. The Tone controls include Treble, Middle and Bass, allowing you to dial up just the right character for your individual, signature tone. In addition, the preamp section features a mode switch, offering both Bright and Thick options. The Bright mode accentuates the high-frequency components for a clear, ringing tone; the Thick setting bypasses the tone circuit to boost the gain and create a chunkier, heavier sound.

Cabinet Convenience

Equipped with both 8- and 16-ohm speaker jacks, Night Train amp head can be used immediately with nearly any speaker cabinet. This extra measure of versatility is just one more example of why the VOX Night Train might be the one amp you never leave at home.

The VOX Night Train V112NT Guitar Speaker Cabinet

VOX released the Night Train V112NT Guitar Speaker Cabinet to complement the VOX Night Train amp head, both cosmetically and tonally. A specially voiced 1 x 12 speaker cabinet, the compact VOX V112NT weights in at just 24.2 lb., yet the full-sounding speaker cab boasts a Custom VOX Celestion Greenback Speaker.

The G12M Greenback speaker evolved over the decades but still retains its essential, sought-after tone. It exhibits all the classic G12M characteristics but is voiced with additional broad mid-range attack and restrained top-end to give a forward, punchy attitude to chords and a searing lead tone without fizz. With its well-controlled low-end, the Celestion G12M is an ideal speaker to bring drive and definition to modern high-gain amps.

FEATURES
  • Rock-solid, all-tube amp head made to travel
  • Uncompromising sound with 2 - 12AX7 preamp tubes and 2 EL84 power tubes.
  • Selectable Bright or Thick mode switch provides EQ and Gain variations for just the right tone
  • Dual-power tube mode offers 15 watt (Pentode Power) or 7.5 watt (Triode Tone) operation
  • Master Volume control preserves your gain settings at any playing level
  • Solid, industrial-chic mirror finish exudes tube coolness

Order today and we'll ship this Vox half stack pronto!

Awesome little amp

Comments about Vox Night Train NT15H and V112NT Half Stack:

You can't go wrong with this amp. Sounds great. Looks great. Has fantastic clean or dirty tone at low volume but can get loud and crunchy if you need it to. Makes a great practice amp or small venue amp for playing live as long as you don't need footswitchability. I've already recommended it to several friends.
I bought this amp as a practice amp because I wanted to continue to have great tube tone but run it more quietly than my Fender Twin would allow (having a sleeping kid in the house will change your perspective I guess). Honestly, I think the tone might be even better at low volume than my Twin produces when cranked up. In that regard, I'd venture a guess it would also make a great recording amp, though I've not recorded with it yet. I'll reiterate what others have said in that it's versatility is limited due to a lack of a footswitch, but for what I use it for, it's perfect. If you switch up your tone using channels, then maybe another amp would suit you better, if you change up your tone using pedals, though, this thing works great.
The construction is rock-solid. Not only is it obviously well-built, but the eye for design that went into it is top-notch. It just LOOKS cool. I've seen that some tone-a-philes have complained about the Greenback speakers. I have zero complaints with this cabinet, however. The construction is solid and the speaker works and sounds great with the head. If it's a major issue, though, just run the head through a different cabinet. The head would look great with almost any speaker cab.
At this price, I don't think could have found a better amp to suit my needs. I think it sounds better than my friend's Orange TT15C-12, which I'd also looked into buying. The combo price on this amp is cheaper and in my opinion sounds better with more versatility. It's a no-brainer.

Big Things in a Small Package

By Mikey B.-hS79v

from South Carolina

Comments about Vox Night Train NT15H and V112NT Half Stack:

If you need an amp that can go from ambient indie to razor sharp blues or punk to flat out metal all within seconds, don't have a load of money to spend (or even if you DO), and want an extremely quality tube head, don't pass this up. Buy a Tube Screamer or your choice of overdrive/distortion and there is absolutely nothing you can complain about here.
I really don't like that there is no way to run a footswitch to go from clean to crunch, but other than that, this amp has basically everything you'd need. A line out would also be nice, but isn't that big of an issue. A very solid amp besides those small, easily and cheaply fixed issues.
This tiny head absolutely blew me away when I first tried it. I walked in to a local music store and told a manager I was looking for a solid tube head with a lot of guts and after looking around, I didn't find a whole lot I was interested in. He then pointed at this miniscule chromed out head and told me to give it a shot. I kind of chuckled and was skeptical, if nothing more than because of the size. This head shines with basically ANY style of music. With a little time and care, you can coax almost any type of tone you could imagine from this little amp from more extreme genres to jazzy and slightly crunchy blues tones. The little cab is also very surprising. It's pretty powerful for it's size, but the Celestion speaker that comes with it just roars. I plan on using it at home, for some recording, and small to medium sized shows.
You simply can NOT beat the sheer shimmering tones and power you can get out of this amp for the price. Period.

SWEET TONE MACHINE

By axjnkee

from Juneau, AK

Comments about Vox Night Train NT15H and V112NT Half Stack:

I got this amp about a year ago. I must agree with the rest of the reviews, this amp is awsome. I can get that vox jangle on the bright channel and everything thing from AC/DC to SLIPNOT on the thick channel. A celestion greenback speaker in the cab is a total plus. My only 2 gripes are you cant footswitch between bright ant thick, and there is no line out. Thats why I only gave it a 4.5 in features. I may buy another and just run an A-B switch. I love the tone this amp generates.

So happy that I made this purchase!

By anonymoushippopotomaus-oiUV3

from Philadelphia, MS

Comments about Vox Night Train NT15H and V112NT Half Stack:

wow. wow. wow.From the very first moment I plugged-in to this little feisty beast it's just oozed with tone. Doesn't matter what guitar I plug into it (Taylor T5, Strat, Tele), it has some of the best sounds I've ever heard come from Vox. When I bought the amp, I knew I wanted something that would give me pure and sweet tone even while turned to a low volume. This half-stack does the trick. I'm not a pedal freak, and with this amp you don't have to be. I sold my Vox Valvetronix in order to buy this half-stack, and I could not be happier. I can already tell its going to be a great amp for recording...and I KNOW from experience its great for Live gigs! Buy this amp! You'll be glad you did!

Awesome Mini Half Stack

By explorer8192

from Minneapolis, MN

Comments about Vox Night Train NT15H and V112NT Half Stack:

This amp is a great amp for anyone looking for good vox tone in a portable size. Despite being only 15 watts, this thing is plenty loud. I played at an outdoor show a few weeks ago, and I used the 7.5 watt setting, and it was plenty loud. I especially like the thick channel, my only gripe is that there isn't very much clean headroom on this channel, but it sounds great with a good overdrive pedal. The only other thing I didn't think was perfect was the speaker, but you can always buy another cabinet or get the speaker replaced. Like I stated earlier, if your looking for a good portable amp, quiet enough to practice with, and loud enough to play gigs with, this is your amp. The carrying bag is a huge plus for me! If for some reason this amp were to be lost or stolen, I'd probably buy another one right away!

I Own Two of These Amps

By BJoslin

from Louisville, KY

Comments about Vox Night Train NT15H and V112NT Half Stack:

I am the worship music pastor at a church of about 750, and needed a good amp that got fat tone at a low enough volume. After owning several Fender tube amps (still love them, but not like this Vox) I was never really happy with my tone, especially when I can't run the amp in church as loud as I would like. The problem was one of tone. I am a tube-only kind of player, and yet all the tube amps I tried were too loud for our church. Turn them down and the tone dies.Then I happened to discover the Vox Night Train in the corner at a local music store and could not believe my ears. I left and came back with a buddy to listen - it was all there: warm, rich tube tone AT A LOW VOLUME. We tried several others, including an AC-15, but much to our surprise the little amp that we were unanimous on was this one. I use it to lead music at my church each week. We keep it on the 7.5 watt setting and mic it with an SM57 Beta, and it sounds incredible. Great warm overdrive, but not offensive even to the senior adults in the church. I keep it on the bright setting, gain at 10 o?clock, volume at 10 o?clock. I use a Gigaverb and an Fulltone overdrive pedal as well, so the use of the Fulltone gives me two ?channels.? I do wish the Night Train had a pedal and channel switching, but with the tone it gives, I am not looking for another amp. In fact, I bought two of them. If you are looking for a fairly inexpensive amp with great tone even at low volume (however, the 15 watt setting can still be too much ) you really owe it to yourself to air out a Night Train. Still can?t believe it.

I'm on the Night Train, love that stuff

By Sebforget

from Calumet Island, Qc

Comments about Vox Night Train NT15H and V112NT Half Stack:

I bought the Night Train half stack almost a year ago so I could have a practice amp to go with my Marshall stack. When I got to the store the owner was playing with it and now he tells me he plans to buy one for himself, always a good sign :) I like the sound of AC15?s but found that there?s not enough versatility to them so I decided to try the Night Train. The NT doesn?t have the sound of an AC15 but its pretty close when played clean. It?s sold has a single channel amp but the thick switch really sounds like it?s giving you another channel. The bright switch sounds like a pimped out AC15, sound's absolutely great with my Telecaster and some gain, very Stevie Ray Vaughan. The thick switch makes my Marshall jealous when played with my Les Paul, it really does sound like a Marshall. What make this a great buy is how versatile this simple amp is: You can get a lot of different sounds out it, the Vox site has a cool chart of different setting for the NT that will keep you busy for hours. Before the NT I was fooling around with an AC15 and an Orange Tiny Terror, boy I?m glad I bought the Night Train.

This little amp SCREAMS!!!!!!

By whatever-PTvgb

from St. Thomas, Ontario, Canada

Comments about Vox Night Train NT15H and V112NT Half Stack:

I tried this out at a local guitar shop with it's matching 1x12 cabinet. that first big chord I played sounded as if it were Vince Neil holding a really long, high pitched note like AAAAAAHHHH!!. It nails that mid-high gain rock tone (ex. Airbourne). When trying out the amp I began playing the riff to Devil On My Shoulder and the riff just came alive. This amp is without a doubt the best amp in its price range. I'm seriously thinking about getting one.

Best amp out there in its class

By Ethanb08

from Canada

Comments about Vox Night Train NT15H and V112NT Half Stack:

Basically when it comes down to small tube amps like this one its between the Orange Tiny Terror and this new Vox Night Train. After playing both the the Tiny Terror and Night Train, I feel that the Night Train beats the TT in every way. The TT is a lazy mans tool(a single tone knob for EQ), the Vox allows you to create musical tones with a 3 knob EQ. Its overal tone is better, its cleans can be nice and chimey or warm and bluesy, and the gain is nice and warm too, the thick switch is nice casue its gives your that full out raw sound of the amp and max gain for soloing. I only wish the thick/bright switch was footswitchable. I am considering buying this in the future just to a have a nice lower wattage amp.

Little Munster

By V guy

from Salem, Or

Comments about Vox Night Train NT15H and V112NT Half Stack:

I dig this little amp, it's a pint size monster that brings a whole new meaning to ankle biter. I played a couple of diffrent guitars through this thing at a local guitar shop I frequent. I played a Fender "Fat" strat through this bad boy, lets just say I got everything from Buddy Holly and the Krickets to Megadeth outta this thing. Next up to bat was a Jackson RR5 That brought a whole new level to this thing. I could have easily pulled off Job for a Cowboy or Bullet outta that. Than a Fender Highway one strat with stright singles, It gave me that old-skool AC/DC tone, switch it over to thick and you got blink all day long. This thing has a pentnode and triode setting, and goes from seven and a half watts to fifteen with the flick of a switch. it also has a "thick" and a "Bright" setting for both wattages. The thick setting kills the EQ and gives you flat out gain, and allows your picking dynamic to EQ the amp organicaly. the bright setting allows you to dial up you own EQ. In my personal opinion, for recording, and even medium-sized gigs, this sucker more than fits the bill and it's mor affordable than alot of comperable botuiqe amps.
