OVERVIEW

Classic AC-style tone and huge power you can put in your pocket.

Designed with an emphasis on analog, VOX’s MV50 combines classic amplifier design with new and innovative production techniques to produce a miniature amplifier with truly monstrous sound. Boasting an incredible 50 watts of power, this one-pound package serves up serious guitar tone that’s reminiscent of your favorite old tube amps. With speaker and line/headphone outputs, the MV50 is perfect for the stage, at home, or in the studio for direct recording.

The MV50 is equipped an all-analog pre-amp circuit that features Nutube, a revolutionary new vacuum tube that produces authentic tube tone at a fraction of the size. By taking advantage of this incredible new technology, VOX’s engineers were able to design a true, miniature tube amplifier. Beyond the inclusion of Nutube, the pre-amp circuit in the MV50 features a staggering number of analog components that effectively reproduce the dynamic character of a traditional tube amp. Paired with this innovative pre-amp circuit is a reliable and efficient Class D power amp that has been specifically designed for the MV50. From warm, natural cleans to dynamic overdrives, this power amp has been engineered to respond to the nuances of your guitar and, of course, your technique.

Though designed with the compact BC108 in mind, the MV50 is a perfect match for nearly any speaker cabinet. The EQ switch on the back of the amplifier features two distinct settings, FLAT and DEEP. When connected to a small cabinet, such as the BC108, setting the amplifier to the DEEP mode will emphasize the rich low-frequency range and prevent the high frequencies from becoming too pronounced. When connected to a larger, more conventional speaker cabinet, setting the amplifier to the FLAT mode will allow you to take full advantage of the characteristics of the speaker cabinet, without emphasizing or reducing any frequency range.

When it comes time to practice or record, the MV50’s line/headphone out can be directly to a mixer, audio interface, or your favorite pair of headphones. VOX’s design team consulted with highly experienced recording engineers and used only the finest microphones and vintage pre-amps to design the cabinet simulation circuit in the MV50. This cleverly designed circuit allows you to record or practice with serious studio sound anywhere or anytime.

Comments about Vox MV50 50W AC Guitar Amp Head:

Got this last week, with the speaker (8"), unimpressive, coming out of box, "toy-like", THEN you hook it up, (comes with cord to connect speaker) AMAZING clean AC bell tone, takes pedals too, as it sits, you can plug into larger enclosure ( resistance selector on back) I plugged into a 12" Eminence, then bypassed the 8", drives really well, haven't run it over "6-7", look forward to trying a 4-12. I love this amp!

Comments about Vox MV50 50W AC Guitar Amp Head:

I am very happy with the Vox MV50 AC. It's packaging is of great quality, the portability of this amp is second to none. The nu-tube technology is simply stunning. I bought this amp for its size, capability/reliability and price. I am very happy with the sound (previously had a Vox Valvetronix) playing through a 1x12 Celestion speaker. For the price, convieneince, quality and capability it's 5/5 from me.

    Put a reverb on it and grab the tones from Brian May to Mike Campbell to George Harrison. Wonderful thru a 4 x 12. Loud!

      Comments about Vox MV50 50W AC Guitar Amp Head:

      Amazing sound from a solid state micro amp. Just as good as my AC10 tube amp which I love. Running it through a 4x12 at 8 ohms and it rocks! Seems to like humbuckers for crunch; stays cleaner on singles unless you turn up the gain, depending on your guitar. I also own the Discontinued Pathfinder 15r which is also a great SS amp that comes very close to a tube amp tone which Vox couldn't seem to create until now.
